Yeah, Haley and Ferriero were ok. But at some point we need to figure out the team wide lack of offensive production.

If some team does, I think some of us should go over to their HFboard and apologize....

I agree. As much as this is becoming a "skating league" people always seem to pick up a goon when one is available.

"play" is a strong word. I would say more like "can be written down on roster sheet at play time."

They certainly do seem to be clearing contracts.

Of course, the other point that is possible that none of us have really discussed: the Rangers have a history of letting guys go when those guys no longer want to be a part of the organization. So, it's possible one or both guys requested to be waived to see if they'd catch on elsewhere (and their agents may well have had indications to this effect from other teams).

Or both of these moves could be for contract clearing. Or they both could have been because they legitimately want(ed) to send the guys down to play in HFD (doesn't make sense in the Halpern case IMO). Or it could be some combination of the above.

Either way, glad to see Bickel gone. Torts used him too much (and then used him poorly) when he was available to him.

Now take Boyle away from him.

I can imagine Torts getting hysterical screaming "Where's my jam??!?"

As much as I like this, it's certainly surprising. They are definitely up to something.

No. Bickel is a Torts guy but the biggest one on the team right now is Boyle. Trade HIM.

we can pray cant we?..........clearing another contract would be nice

Id like to think theyre up to something for a real shakeup, but its past noon and we havent heard if Halpern has been picked up, and Im pretty sure there will be no interest in Bickel - so, while they might be trying to clear contracts, I dont know if its going so well.

2 years ago i warned this board that Torts would make this team a mess with no toughness at all.. Bickel is a guy i know sucked and did nothing at all to help the rangers but he stood up for his team and did anything need to be a Ranger. The Rangers are by far the softest team i have ever seen since i started watching them in the early 1970's.. Torts is a sham and a phony and now good luck with Krieder /miller and others playing without a policemen in a conferance with Carkner/Boulton/Thornton/Lucic/Prust/Orr/Fraser/ and tons more. a F'ing disgrace
