Love Clarksons style of play but his acquisition would be.....such a Ranger move.

It'd be a bad idea.

Clarkson would come here and score 5 goals a year.

If we can hang on to the 6-8th spot and get him back in game shape for the playoffs, we will have a chance to go deep. Hopefully he gets a week or two in before the playoffs to get his game back to par.
Its like the MSG cameras purposely showed him at an angle that you couldn't see his eye.

All while his cap hit would probably be 5 million.

Clarkson is going to get Hartnell money. And Hartnell's contract is stupid, getting paid through 35 based on production during your mid to late 20s. Clarkson will be overpaid for what he's going to contribute over the next 5 years.

I don't want to pay Clarkson like a second liner. Even with his 30g season he didn't break 50 points.

Third liner? Absolutely, though i'd have to swallow my hatred for his face. But not a second liner. Ugh. And that's not happening, so no thanks.

I wonder what Staal and Stu talked about during the game on Monday. Stu seems like he's actually a pretty nice guy, but I can't quite tell

This, it would be a huge mistake.

I'd offer him a little more than Prust money and that's it. 3 years/3.5 million. Call it a day. He gets better offers elsewhere that he wants to take, have fun.

Or they talked about how badass they both would look with scars from their eye injuries.

I would rearrange the furniture in my living room and play along with the game. I had seen the game so many times I knew exactly when to 'hop over the boards" and pad my +/-.

Anyway, Sandstrom scored that game. Guess what, a couple of minutes on Hockey Reference just now and I figured out what game it was. Here's the box score.

They showed him from the side where his injury was, and it was surprisingly clear. The issue is with his vision. His brothers were interviewed before the game and said his vision is still not 100%.

I agree with this. I said something similar in a different thread a month or so back: every team has flaws, good teams sweep those flaws under the rug by winning. The team can show worrying tendencies as much as they want so long as they consistently come out of games with two points. No team is going to be perfect with the league set up the way it is today. People remember the past as being perfect and hope that the future will be perfect as well, when in reality this team always had flaws and always will.

If you can be entertained for 60 minutes of hockey and the team can come away with two points, that's a good night in my book.

We played a free flowing style for the first two periods (wide freaking open by Rangers' standards) and score 3 goals. Who'd have thought a top heavy group of forwards would benefit from playing a game like that.

It was an entertaining game, I was disappointed with the way we played the 3rd (the good ol' turtle to not lose) and it almost bit us, but damn was it good to get a W, and in regulation.

I thought that Devs team was the weakest I've seen us play in years.

We were one bad line change away from overtime. That 3rd goal was two gifts, one from the bad line change and one from Hedberg looking every bit the backup.

Then Hank also had to seal it with a steal(s).

A win is a win, keep the streak going with two more at home then onto Philly.

God no to Clarkson for multiple reasons:

He's a Devil.

He'll cost too much and won't live up to those expectations.

I hate his dumb face and hope he goes west so I don't have to look at it 6 times a year anymore.

The following day after a win over the Devils is always such a beautiful thing.
