Prucha, Svatos, and a number of others were beneficiaries of the PP time in 05-06. Zucc probably, with the right opportunity would have been a 65-70 point guy that year.

Today, for the first time, I saw "Lord of the Rings". Now, at long last, do I get The Hobbit thing...

He played in the minors for the better part of two seasons and was willing to play there again, but only if the Rangers signed him to a guaranteed contract, so he'd be paid the same amount wherever he was assigned. And he's actually playing in a better league now (at 10X what he'd be making on a two-way contract), so this was really a win-win for everyone.

Mats Zuccarello, playing for Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL, remains on the Rangers’ reserve list and would be eligible to play for the Blueshirts this season — without clearing waivers — if he were to sign with the club following the end of his season in Europe. That represents a change in the CBA.

He would not play on our third line, or in our top six. He would not crack our lineup. He's not third line material. Playing on a line with Boyle? No thanks.

Not with Rangers. Zucca fits in top-6 type role and we are too stacked. Right now a guy like Kreider may play on 3rd line.

I think he MIGHT be a fit on the 4th line being used sparsely to help get/keep the puck in the other zone and most importantly used as a pure PP specialist - especially if we run into problems there. Third line - meh - not so much.

he might be useful in case of injury to a top six guy, i guess. so i see why they'd hold his rights.

I would love to see him come over and play a 3rd line RW role after the KHL season ends. That pushes Pyatt down to the third line and depending on what's available in the trade market you can bring in a two way center and push Boyle down to the 4th line.

Kreider-3rd line Center-Zuccarello
Rupp-Boyle-Pyatt
Halpern
Asham

Creates a lot more depth in the bottom 6.

I'm hoping he's brought back. The guys definitely shows flashes of brilliance

The thing is no matter how good a player is, how much potential he may have if teams miss-use use them or play them in a wrong role they will not be as effective

And while we talk about former Rangers, here you have a story from Andreas Thuresson,who played for The Whale last year. Talking among others,about Redden and Avery.
Interesting read, but it is from last summer.
http://translate.google.no/translate...sasong&act=url

I would like to give Rangers a huge kudos for buying out Redden. That was a real class act from the management.

When he is eligible to be brought back he should be brought back. He can play 12-15 minutes a game on the 3rd or 4th line but more importantly give some creativity to the powerplay. He is not a superstar but there is nothing wrong with him being a 40-50 point player.

I donīt believe that for a second. If another NHL team offers him a good one way deal, of course he will consider it. His dream has, and still is, to play in the NHL, thatīs his own words.

One of the main reasons he signed with Magnitogorsk was that he got an NHL clause after the first season, no other KHL team that offered him a contract would give him this clause.

I think we will se him in the NHL next season, either for Rangers or another NHL team.
