yep, or you hope for the best with our other players. The good news is, Gabs is not going to be gone very long.

You need to put my response in context.
Okay, fair enough. I am not pointing this at you, just trying to make a point about that. Since I quoted you directly, I should have worded it differently.

So, to say it more broadly. I have read so many accolades of Richards and Carter, with the implication that this was the magic, this was the big thing, these two players turned everything around. I got tired of hearing it, as it was overdone. I agree that it was a smart acquisition by Lombardi. Then, somebody had to make it all slurp together.
The team started to believe in themselves once Sutter was brought in.

Rangers have three top-6 holes to fix: 1st line LW, 2nd line LW and 1st line RW until Gabby gets back.

gabby can likely be covered by everyone bumping up a line (although a new solution would have to be found if he looked like being out long term). Dubi, Hags and Kreider can fill the LW slots but it's incredibly risky to rely on a rookie and two guys who in a perfect world are 3rd liners (unless Dubi can rebound very strongly). With that many question marks, the Ranger have to make at least one move for a top 6 winger IMO, going with what they currently have wont be enough.

As The Rash Turns episode #130

Quote:
Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson hoped the first few days of free agency — specifically the signing of free-agent winger Zach Parise — would spur the marketplace toward more serious trade offers for the Columbus winger and team captain.

But Howson has maintained that he won’t trade Nash for less than “market value,” even if the saga drags well into July, even into August, and yes, even into the start of training camp in September.

Parise was signed by the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday, but as of late last night, Howson did not seem any closer to reaching a deal.
How many times can Howson misread the market? February trading deadline. Oh wait until the draft when more teams will be involved. Wait until July 1. Wait until Parise signs. Howson was hoping Parise would sign with Pittsburgh or Philly but Parise ended up in Minnesota. The lockout will be over in November and Nash will still be in Columbus.

Quote:
The general tone from GMs around the NHL is that Howson is asking too high a price for a player he is being forced to trade. The Blue Jackets, who never scored enough goals even with Nash in the lineup, figure to struggle mightily once their franchise player is gone, so they’re hopeful of getting at least one NHL-ready forward in return.
The cap hit is high. The amount of money owed to Nash is high. A team would need to pick up some of the salary if they wanted a better return. That is not allowed in the NHL so the offers will be low. Sather got the Caps to pick up 40% of the Jagr salary and gave them Anson Carter. That's not allowed anymore but Sather won't give Howson his idea of "full" value and take on that contract. VAN has the same issue with Luongo.

I do not think that Howson quite understands what the phrase 'market value' means. Current market for players comparable to Nash, such as Richards, Carter and Staal, would be a roster player, such as Dubinsky, AA or Hagelin, and either Erixon and a 3rd, (similar to Schenn and 3rd, or Couturier and 3rd), or Thomas and a 1st, (the equivalent of Dumoulin and a 1st.). The return for Eric Lindros in 1992 is not market value for Nash. That is the unreasonable expectation of a GM who repeatedly demonstrates his incompetency.

Until Howson is fired this **** will drag on. Incompetency from ownership right on down the line. I think Sather's plan B is Doan. If at the time Doan decides to move on from the desert, Sather moves on from Nash IMO.

Problem is that Weber will command lots of $$$ on his extension. You are probably looking at 8 mill cap hit, if not more. Say we part with Staal+. We'd have Weber and Girardi plus McDonagh/Del Zotto with their extensions. That's a lot of money tied up on the blue line.

If we were middle of the road club defensively and/or needed help on the blue line I'd be all for it. Right now we have 1 of the best and also youngest blue lines in hockey. 4 legit top-4 D-men (not counting Sauer). Spending assets and money on a forward should be priority #1 not upgrading from #2 or #3 ranked D to #1 ranked D.

Dubinsky had been a 1st line player over 75pct of his career, and that was on a competitive, yearly playoff team.

Jackets fans think he's a third liner on their team....the worst team in hockey.

Yeeeeah, Sure.

Dubinsky can step right into Columbus and be the 22-min a night guy he was for us last year. The 5 or 10 goals and 10 or 15 points Dubi gets less than Nash won't make or break CBJ's season. They still suck, and suck by a mile.

What fixes Columbus will be a slow process. That process starts with replenishing their barren stockpile of forwards.

Miller and Thomas would be 1 and 1a on Columbus' forward prospect depth chart instantly.

All we hear is how CBJ's defense is "set" and they don't need Erixon? The worst defensive team in hockey doesnt need one of the top-10 defense prospects in the game?

Wizniewski is garbage. Johnson can't play in his own end. Tyutin and Nikitin are decent. Moore and Savard are still unproven. Murray???? Look at how Larsson played this year in his own end, and Larsson was more polished after the draft.

A significantly bigger cap hit.

That would hinder us from getting forwards.

Exactly.

Weber is clearly an upgrade over Staal (no one should claim otherwise) but we are pretty set for now on the blue line. Another top line forward is what we lack.

How SupersonicMonkey read the above quote...

"Staal and Weber are both on the block and they will be traded for each other before December"
The Staal situation was nothing like the Weber situation.

Brandon Sutter does not = Marc Staal.

And Jordan Staal does not = Shea Weber.

The Rangers are not trading Staal for Weber when he can potentially be had as an UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENT next summer.

And if "random" poster doesn't want to be made a fool of, then don't post radical trade proposals and proclaim the Rangers would be stupid enough to trade one of their premiere young players for a rental. They won't do it for a guy locked in for many years to address a glaring need in Nash.

They can have him for zero assets as a UFA next summer.

Guys like Weber test the market. Rangers won't get him extended. There will be 29 (not Minnesota after July 4th) teams going after him.

Luckily, Sather, Gorton, and Clark are not as stupid.

Link to Jesse Spector's latest article weighing in on Ryan vs Nash.

I agree with everything he's saying and have been saying all along.

I retweeted him saying unfortunately I don't think we can get Ryan without Stepan but if we can we absolutely should.

So according to that article Howson is asking Hurricanes for Skinner+? Wow... yeah good luck with that. I can just imagine what he would ask from Rangers then... Kreider, Stepan, McDonaugh and a 1st?

Other than that, I would definitely prefer us to go after Ryan rather than Nash. He's younger, has more potential, has equal stats and comes at a lower cap hit. I'd be willing to part with Stepan in a package deal for Ryan to be honest.

Sutter is a 3rd line center. Dumoulin is a #4/#5 D. Some people say Pitt reached for Pouliot at #8. Maatta was a better pick at #8 and they got him with their #1 pick. That was the price for Staal. A roster player,prospect and a draft pick is the price. That was the price for Burns,Richards and Carter. The latter two have big contracts. Smaller hits but longer term. Burns and Staal were 1 year away from group III. Columbus wants multiple assets. NHL forwards. Too much.

He's not saying Staal is better. He's looking at cap hits, trade value, team needs... he's being realistic. I've never seen a poster railroaded this badly for being realistic.

How about;
Flip Dubinsky to St Louis for P Berglund
Then trade Stepan + non roster assets for Ryan
???

Berglund & Ryan >> Dubinsky & Stepan

Bigger, Stronger and More Productive
6,35 M cap hit vs 5 M cap hit. No big cap increase.
St Louis needs to add cap to reach floor
Tough to give up 2 excellent homegrown products - but this is youth for youth. Not some old farts on retirement deals
Upgrade the team if you can...
Not saying it can or will be done, just trying to find an amicable solution as armchair GM
