Count me in on that one with you.

Vancover is a snake bitten playoff team. I'm surprised they made it a series.

I expected the Flyers to beat the Pens in 7 games. I never thought the Pens would go down 3-0. That shocked me.

Go look up Craig Patrick. Go look Sathers history with Craig Patrick.

Craig Patrick is the senior advisor to the bluejackets.

We are not getting Nash, unless the Rangers are willing to grossly overpay for him.

Its not going to happen. Sather doesn't get fleeced in trades.

I picked both the Flyers and the Kings in my pool. I just go by which team has a better and less prone to breaking defensive scheme. Flyers are not great, but Pengies were worse.
So, things are proceeding just as I expected.

As well, most Vancouver fans are insufferable. You watch, they whill be whining for weeks about what they will say is non-call when Hamhuis fell down at centre ice and grabbed the Kings players stick. That`s how Canucks fans usually are, most of them.

yeah I think not having daniel killed them.

I don't think Kings offense is going to be enough for them the deeper they go. They saved Lombardi's job though.

They will look much better next year though.

Wow....

Did not know that. Thanks for referring me to that. I understand where your coming from with the overpaying.

I just really like his game, and think he would fit in perfect. But if that means grossly over paying then that is not something we want to do.

Yes, completely agree.

Plus imagine the confidence in that locker room. You gotta think they believe they can beat anyone at this point espically after beating the winner of the presidents cup.

Certainly on paper.

But in execution their offense isn't that great.

Since the Jeff Carter trade; the Kings were one of the top five scoring teams in the league....

Before the playoff's started the Kings went in scoring at a 3.0G per game clip since Carter.

it certainly improved. I remember that. I didn't know they were top five in scoring.

Still they play in a weak division. I want to see what they would look like against Nashville or St Louis.

Weak Division ? Three playoff teams(Almost Four). The Kings are 3-1 vs the Blues and Nashville this year. For all the Talk of how great the Nucks were.....They play in a really weak division.

yeah I consider it a weak division. Three teams Phoenix, San Jose, and LA all squeaking into the playoffs in the last month. All of them rotating between being in and out of the playoffs.

I didn't realize that LA was so strong against Nashville and the Blues, that bods well for them(even if it is only the regular season).

Pacific was also the lowest scoring division in the league was it not?

You won't get any argument from me about the Northwest. That ended up becoming awful this year.

The Western Conference has Seven of the top Ten Defensive teams in the league.....

It's not a high flying Offense Conference. If Nashville, LA, PHX, Blues one of those make the cup Final. No East team is going to light them up, it's going to be 2-1 3-1 1-0.... ETC>

Thats fine, but LA is really the only real defensive team of those three(out of the pacific division). Phoenix has got good balance, but their backend isn't amazing. San Jose showed they have defensive issues.

Hope the Kings take the West, would love if the Rangers got to play them in the SCF, but since they are blowing it I guess Philly will suffice.

This is what Columbus wants for Nash

Dubinsky
Kreider
Stepan or Hagelin
McDonagh or Del Zotto
1st round pick

The Rangers take on the Nash contract. 6 years. $7.8M cap hit. $47.4M in real money.

What a deal

Quote:
His decision had to be a relief to the Rangers, who had pressed Kreider to turn pro after his both freshman and sophomore seasons and who were reluctant to acquire superstar Rick Nash if it meant giving up Kreider to the last-place Columbus Blue Jackets in the trade.

"He wasn't the only reason, but he was a big part," said Gordie Clark, the Rangers' vice-president of player personnel. "They were asking for so bloody much. As I said in the [war] room, 'Jeez, Columbus wants to give us Nash, but they want us to look like Columbus when we get him.'"

Where we trading for Crosby or Nash for that type of a deal. No wonder CBJ continues to suck year after year. From the top down what an incompetent front office.

Make no mistake about it, the Rangers will be looking to add significant offense this off-season. No matter if they win the next couple of rounds or lose tonight all options will be on the table.

I honestly worry about what Sather will do if the Rangers lose in the 1st round......

Yeah, their incompetant because they didn't want to trade their franchise player for scraps. Any GM will ask for the moon for their franchise player.

Certain franchises have better "franchise players". The guy has been at a ppg once in his entire NHL career. He requested a trade. He has a NMC. If Columbus wants to trade him anywhere they will need to lower their demands.
