Rucinsky signs with the Blues

Quote:
ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President John Davidson announced today the club has signed free agent forward Martin Rucinsky.

“In Martin, we have added a veteran goal scorer with proven leadership skills to our line-up today,” said Davidson. “We are happy to have an opportunity to acquire a player of Martin’s ability and look forward to his second stint with the St. Louis Blues
.”

Whew, getting a little nervous from the Jagr quotes he was gonna sign with us. Now we have one spot from the start for Immonen to get in camp.

Wow..

I bet he didn't sign for $3.1 million..

Btw who is the sucker...

The Rangers for offering him that contract or Rucinsky for not taking it?

Not a huge loss if any..

While I think that Rucinsky was highly underrated by many on these boards, wthe Rangers acquired a better player in Shanahan. Good luck to Martin in St. Louis, who actually look like they might be a somewhat decent team this year.

well, he's never really played great anywhere but in NY (at least lately) but he could be a good signing for them...

Rangers didn't really have room for him, but I bet JD has somethin to do with his signing

Another good "waiting" job done by the Rangers. It seemed in the beginning of the off-season Rucinsky was pretty much a lock to be resigned and the fact that he hasnt i think is great. I liked Rucinsky but the Rangers just got younger and saved some cap space in the process.

For a team like the Blues they get a proven veteran and thats great for them but as far as the Rangers are concerned there is a lot of movement in the ranks below and now the competition in camp becomes a bit more exciting.

i really appreciate what Rucinsky did for the team last year. Good signing by the Blues, hopefully Martin does very well over there.

Im glad Sather did not offer the no trade contract. Why give a veteran like Rucinsky that its not like he is Sakic, Forsberg or Leetch

I think this is good for everyone involved. The Rangers get younger, and cheaper, The Blues get a solid character veteran player, and Rucinsky gets the contract I think he has wanted for a while.

Exactly. I admire Marty for being a character guy, who always a) wanted to be here and b) performed well WHILE here, but after the purge in 2004, he's no longer the kind of guy we should be recruiting for the team. We will be looking for the Marty Rucinskys of the league again in about 3 years to become nice add on pieces to an established core of players.

Best of luck to him in StL. I see this as the first of many good-for-all-sides moves involving the Rangers and Blues over the next few years.

As much as I like Rucinsky (and loved his middle finger to the Flyers) he had to go. Good luck to him in St. Louis. I hope he does really well there.

Now all we need is Sykes to get signed by another team, and we're set.

Good player, loved his attitude. Played very well for us when he was healthy. But the reality is he no longer had a spot on the team and he's getting up there in age.

Thanks Marty for a great year.

This is a bad signing by JD. Rucinsky is the type of player that is going to get old FAST..

2 years with a no trade clause for Rucinsky could be the worst contract of the offseason...

Just terrible..

I still don't understand the bashing on Rucinsky.

Say you want to play a younger player, fine. But don't knock Rucinsky, calling him utterly useless when he sports a PPG, and loved it here.

If we didn't sign Shanahan I'd of welcomed him back with open arms.

I thought Larry Pleau was the GM... if JD was going to be GM, why didn't they just fire the guy?

I liked Martin. I thought he played well for us. I liked his versatility. And he wanted to play for us when maybe a lot of other players didn't. When Shanahan signed with us though that more or less made a Rucinsky signing one that would block a younger player out and so it was time for him to go somewhere else and it looks as if he did pretty well anyway. I do wish him well though--except against us .
