And I assumed Brooks picked that out if an interview. I didn't know there was a Brook's phone call. Changes things.

Tha is how I took it as well. I'd love to have him but would be real surprised if he actually came here.

And for the record, I really like Hagelin. I'm not concerned about his postseason. He was a rookie and made dumb rookie mistakes.

But he was a 6th rounder. Sixth? If you can use a 6th rounder as a centerpiece for a guaranteed 30-goal scorer....Marone a mi!

As valuable as he was last season, you have to figure the Rangers will have no problem replacing Hagelin in the depth chart

Hagelin, Kreider, Anisimov and Dubinsky can all play LW and are LH shots. I think he would have blocked one of Hagelin or AA if he stayed. I didnt have an issue with him being traded. It was the return that was pure garbage.

Korpikoski plays all three forward positions.

I'm not sure if that's what Slats wanted or simply the best he could do. As has often been the case, at least since he's been Rangers GM, the shoe is on the other foot. The other guy is the one needing to trade Messier and Sather's not giving up prized assets. I wouldn't be surprised to see Rupp in one of Slats' offers.

Go search the last 10 pages of the previous free agency thread it was probably 1000 tweets ago and I don't want to go through them lol. It's in there you can even search my posts or RangerBoy's in that thread. A number of us linked it.

Shea Weber's options post-Suter:
1) accept Q.O at $7.5 mil.
2) wait for offer sheet.
3) sign longterm with Preds.
4) push for trade.
Wow, Dregs. Really going out on a limb there.

Absolutely, but the left side is his strongest side.

Of course Sather wanted the prized possessions. But Smith used two things for leverage:

a) Messier was coming off a subpar/injured season
b) Messier wanted out

Rice looked very good in the three playoff games he played in in 1991. So did Millen, Amonte and Weight. How Sather got the worst out of the four is a mystery to me.

Sather paid Smith back though. The Rangers were desperate to make the playoffs in 1993 and Sather got Weight for Tikkanen straight up.

The Nash/Ryan situations are a bit similar. Columbus has to trade Nash. he wants out. Anahaeim has to trade Ryan since Perry and Getzlaf are both UFA'S next season and Ryan (for some reason) doesnt like being a multi-millionaire in Orange County (warning sign IMO)

I strongly believe now especially after my interview last night with Parise, that him and Suter are a package Deal!
Can't be the Pens. They can kiss one or both of Malkin and Letang goodbye if it happens. Both are UFA after 2014.

And it's "He and Suter". Where did Josh go to journalism school?

Minnesota is going to be quite a bit better next year, good for them! I think Parise heading west is the last thing Howson wanted to see. He probably wanted Philly to nab Ryan (which I think they will) and Parise to sign with the Pens to force Sather's hand a bit.

I'm excited for them. With Granlund, Coyle, Brodin, and Dumba, as well as Backstrom, Harding, and Hackett they are going to be very very good.

I am feeling Minnesota as well for Parise and Suter.

It doesn't even have to be right away, they'll have 12-13 years with those two lol.

Just a bit. It wont happen overnight. But Backstrom is up for UFA and Heatley is an albatross. If they can move Harding and heatley for established, cheap role players, then lock up Backstrom, they will be set for a while. Especially with all their prospects.

If Parise goes to Minn, does that make the Pens a player for Nash?

I've kind of felt that Parise would go to Minn all along.

Heatley was still their best forward last year. Heatley's stats took a hit but he took on a more defensive style of play. I expect his stats to be fine this year as well. Backstrom doesn't need to be re-signed. In my opinion I give Harding a shot, I think he could be very very good in this league, and they have Hackett in the pipeline. They have a bright future. All is right in the hockey world when Minnesota, and Edmonton are getting better, and New Jersey gets worse.

They're not on his list, but anything is possible.

And they'll still be perfectly fine. I can see both players thriving there. Put Carle with Kronwall, and Semin with Datsyuk and they'll be fine.
