damaged goods. what happens when X player with upside and injury concerns gets injured? then you're forced to make a trade to salvage the season. dumb.

people get cold feet because they don't want to see the NYR make a mistake, but we made a mistake by not making any moves at the deadline. It cost us a chance to go to the SCF. It didn't have to be Nash either!

BS! we're ready now! Lundqvist won't be young forever. the window is open. if the right move is there you make it. reclamations are not the right moves for this club.

fair enough, which is why i said it's not the top priority. the top priority for this club is to add top six scoring and defenseman.

for the bottom six you're looking at replacing:
Prust, Feds, Mitchell

Nik, there is nothing wrong with grabbing a good younger player with some upside coming off an injury. If he gets hurt, put him on IR. As long as you aren't expecting said player to come in and light the world on fire it will work out. Bring in Mueller as a 3rd line RW with some PP time and see how he does.

If not, just acquire a RW at the deadline.

Which is why I really wanted Fleischmann during last year's free agency. I have no problem with this kind of thing, although I'd rather sign Stempniak.

i'm ok with stop gaps like Whitney or even 2yr with Doan, because of the type of players they are. however i just don't like these guys coming off substantial injuries. just setting yourself up for trouble.

I'd rather they address top six needs through either Parise* or Semin, or through a trade. I want to try to get real top line players
first if possible.

Oh please. I'm so tired of this sensationalist nonsense. I knew the moment this team had a taste of success there would be fans lining up to hit the "go for it!" button. Lundqvist just turned 30 and is in the prime of his career. Barring injury, he has another 5-6 years of elite ability in his tank. We didn't make a move at the deadline because there was no move to make. Nash was the only high-value option, and the price was astronomical. We didn't have the depth to make a trade of that magnitude, so what are your alleged alternatives? Kostitsyn? Gaustad? More band-aids that wouldn't have put us over the top?

This team has come too far in the last 5 years to throw it all away on some stupid trade. Patience is a virtue, and thank god the front-office seems to be exercising it. The need for instant gratification around here is embarrassing. Trade Stepan!! Del Zotto, Stepan, Dubinsky and Miller for Ryan! For Nash! For Yandle! Stanley Cup contenders don't trade away 3 roster players for a single guy. Especially if they don't have the organizational depth to fill the void left. The Kings got Carter because Johnson was replaceable. Their defensive depth is legitimate. It's banging down the door at the NHL level. Ours is another year away if we're lucky. This is NOT the time to be making panic moves. This is the same kind of garbage I hear from Jackets fans about not wanting to make a "big boy" trade because dealing Stepan for Nash would leave a gaping hole at our center position.

Mueller is an extremely skilled player. He gives us a big shot from the point on the PP, and increases our scoring depth. Is he a risk? Of course he is, but he's a risk with very high upside. Give me a $2m, 1 year, zero risk commitment for a kid with 25 goal / 55 point upside over an asinine 4 for 1 trade any day of the week.

The guy (Mueller) is certainly at least a 3rd liner, possibly more. I don't see the problem with giving him even a $3m contract if it's for a year.

With the 10% buffer, that's 77million.

So the temporary cap is 70.3M. We have a ton of cap space than, but than teams could be screwed if they go by that and the new CBA drops it to 60M

If enough teams are over that number, it would give the NHL cause to ask for roll backs.

Doesn't matter this kid will be ahead of the curve, generally speaking to others his age as he wasn't drafted earlier, and reciprocally is projected likewise to be behind them at the end of his career.

Bottom line is the kid can shoot, and score. Yes, he may not be getting stiffest competition in that regard, but he is scoring ballpark Yakupov rate of numbers. Even allowing, hypothetically to say such adjustment is necessary, a discount from Pearson's rate, it will still be an impressive number, by any measurement.

Plus he's 6'0, which is not 6'2 or better, but which is not smurf either.

This guy is a ? with talent, IMO. Could be another scoring machine, could be Pavel Brendl. But IMO, he's worth a risk at the right price. Better guys to target might be Coldshot's -- er, make that, CM Lundqvist's favorite, Kerdiles (sp.), but they would command higher price from team that has greater need to keep, develop + use the asset, who in any case would not be here next season for sure.

This is amplified by the fact that he could make the Rangers this year, and we would ideally like to benefit from both someone here right away, and as well as in the long term plan. I agree it's best case scenario, but Pearson could be 3rd/4th line next year.

You have to assume a team is not anxious to part with a 1st round pick right away. But LAK are happy, have no immediate need for this investment, and could theoretically part with him for enough profit.

Long story short - 2

Unfortunately, people who have a mancrush on Girardi and go nuts because of all the trades in which I have made him the centerpiece have to press for a herd mentality to defeat this premise from being discussed in civil fashion with an open mind.

All I was looking for was something along the lines of:
Pearson is terrible/good/great/overrated/underrated, IMO, and based on that, taking into account both our need for a prospect scorer who could be here early yet at the same time is a risk, my counter offer would be:

___________ for Pearson, as I feel the the Kings poster initial demand was too much.

Since this was beyond most, I will pursue the matter individually, and post the results.
Let the record, show, however, I was proper in bring the matter to our brethren at the Ranger forum. I did not ostracize anyone, though a few sought to do that to me.


Long story short - 3
I would like to thank those who were civil and polite and supported freedom of speech, whether or not they agreed with with suggestions.

Those of you who were otherwise, you have your comments to hang your hat on.

The handful of you who were ridiculously mean spirited, to the point of being an infraction of within HFB rules, I will not on this occasion as the mods to take action. But you know who you are, and if this keeps up, you will reap what you sow.

In conclusion, there is no obsession with Pearson.
A case can be made, simply, he may be an option worth considering IF certain variables fall into place.

I look forward to all who wish to discuss with an open mind all our options to make the best Rangers team possible.

This could be the end of hockey in hartford unfourtantely, 21 months ago when Baldwin took over it looked like we could be in contention for a NHL team. Now this was just dropped down. Terrible.

And here I thought you couldn't make your arguments and proposals any more ludicrous than they already were. You're advocating trading for a guy we could have drafted but didn't less than a week after the draft is over, which is bizarre enough, but on top of that you've never even watched him play a game?!

Also, I just wanted to add that for the life of me I cannot figure out what this sentence means.

Bernmeister, I believe you have done what many believed to be impossible by surpassing JOrts in sheer ridiculousness.

I believe the article said that the Rangers are assuming direct control so I don't know that the AHL/Rangers are leaving HFD anytime soon. Maybe they'll just rename it Wolfpack again.

you're reasonable, i'm insane. got it.

Trade rumors have really dried up this week.

Guess GMs have put everything on hold for a week or two till after the big july 1st free agency frenzy ends.

With some of the ridiculous asking prices for trades this off-season, how about a scenario like this:


Call up Winnipeg with the new RFA compensations and tell them you are preparing to offer Evander Kane a 6-year $30 million deal, and that the compensation (figured by RFA compensation standards total of total value/5 of $6mil/year) would be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round pick. Ensure Kane would sign the deal, then offer Brandon Dubinsky and a 3rd for his "rights." If they don't take it, just follow through on the offer-sheet, and trade Dubinsky to the highest bidder based on propsect/picks (I know, unpopular ideal, but follow through). Re-sign Fedotenko, Del Zotto, Stralman, and Biron. Sign Alexei Ponikarovksi for bottom-6 duties to replace Prust (will probably cost a very little bit more, but brings more offense and versatility than Prust). Pursue Whitney or take a chance on a Peter Mueller/Guillaume Latendresse type. Pursue Schultz. Sign a cheap low-risk, moderate-reward defenseman like Matt Taormina who can play 20 min/night or 7 min/night to compete for the 4/5/6/7 spot with one of Erixon/Stralman/Schultz.




While Gaborik is out:

Kane-Richards-Whitney
Kreider-Stepan-Callahan
Hagelin-Anisimov-Ponikarovksi
Boyle-Rupp-Fedotenko

Staal-Girardi
McDonagh-Toarmina/Schultz/Erixon/Stralman
Del Zotto-Toarmina/Schultz/Erixon/Stralman


When Gaborik returns:
Kane-Richards-Gaborik
Kreider-Stepan-Callahan
Hagelin-Anisimov-Whitney
Poinkarovski-Rupp/Boyle-Fedotenko/Boyle
Rupp/Fedotenko

Staal-Girardi
McDonagh- Toarmina/Schultz/Erixon/Stralman
Del Zotto- Toarmina/Schultz/Erixon/Stralman



Using this years cap (since likely won't be going up significantly once the CBA is concluded):
