Well, to be blunt, thats a terrible point.

I dont disagree that the Rangers need to make another big acquisition sometime soon to truly be cup contenders, but the free agent and trade landscape is abysmal right now. No sense in making a big move just to make a big move.

This. Staal played a defensive role for most of his career in Pittsburgh and last season he really stepped up in an offensive role when they needed him. 6M will be a fair salary for him as early as next season.

And with everyone upping the price on their players, if he stays reasonable, he'll get a good deal for him.

The longer he holds onto his hand, the riskier it is for Howson.
That's kind of what they were getting at too, they feel like Howson has held out too long. Probably should have took a deal at the deadline when teams were hot and bothered instead of just bothered.

Blow it? You can bet that Sather will be poking around the Parise negotiations.

Hes made it awfully clear he doesnt want to come here. Hows that blowing it?

had a dream we traded Dubi, AA, JTMiller and a 4th for Nash. Then Jagr picked me up from my house to go to open hockey at Aviator...

Strange times..

Nash should just tell Howson that he's going to remove 1 team off his list for every week he continues to be a doosh until there is only 1 team left.

I can't stand TSN. "Dolla dolla bill y'all"....did he really just say that? Also, Garrison ranked over Semin? Semin is a talent above and beyond JG.

Teams are removing themselves at this point, Howson is scared that if Philly doesn't get Ryan that the Rangers will say oh well our team is going to improve on it's own and then he won't have them as an option. He's going to make the deal soon and won't be getting what he wants.
