I really liked what I saw of him last night. He might also be a perfect linemate for Zucc, as he has some of the pure size Zucc lacks. And if he is a player that is able to finish the puck, they could be a lethal line. That line looked good last night.

Same here. I was expecting Rupp type of skating.

Really glad to see you guys enjoying Clowe. Hopefully he extends with you guys and we get some decent prospects with the picks.

The big thing was, even if he has no points, it would have been a good game by him yesterday

On his goal, the fact that he knew to follow Stepan's forecheck (which was one of the most badass things i've ever seen Step do) is something I haven't seen anybody on this team do consistently even last year.

I can not stress this enough. Amazing to have another player who can effect a game even without scoring. THOSE are the types of players you win with. That's the type of player Torts likes to have around. One of my favorite players in the entire league.

Don't see how anyone couldn't have loved his game last night. Instantly endeared himself to the Rangers fans. Hope he can stay healthy and bring that same kind of game for a long time.

I dont know Clowe's demands but 3-4 years sounds about right. If they buyout Richards and sign Weiss (NOT Ribiero. He's 33. Way too old and will be way too expensive) the Rangers will be set down the middle.

Clowe is a unique player like Clarkson, Lucic and Kassian. He can just tell his agent to get him a Lucic contract and some team will give it to him. For that reason alone, I do not like this move. This is a pure rental unless as Sting said, we severely overpay for him and regret it down the line.

Or the Rangers know his contract demands and see them as reasonable?

If Clowe takes a discount here, I'd be completely shocked. He is easily worth 6m/per yr when you consider in his playing style and that he's been a better player than Lucic his entire career. He will get paid.

He will not get 6 million/year. There were rumors he wanted 5. Normally the rumors are high. My guess is 4-4.25.

The rumors were that he was seeking $5M. And guys usually get less than what they're looking for. He'll probably get in the neighborhood of $4.5M.

6M for someone that hadn't scored a goal until today? Keep dreaming.

4-4.5.

Oh, if that's true, give him Dubi's contract. 4 yrs at 4.2m per.

Hopefully Sather can use Callahan's caphit as a bargain chip, Clowe shouldn't make more than the captain.

LOL. Clowe making $6m? No chance, but he's going to get 4-5 years at $4-4.5 miillion.

Yeah, I think that would be the goal.

That makes sense to me. Hopefully 4 years @ 4.25. I think that is fair for a player like Clowe. We will see.

def 4yr 4-4.5/yr for sure.. not saying he wont be taking a discount but the guy waived his NTC to come here and play and not be looked at as a rental but looking for a team he could fit on and be a big part of.. He CHoose to be here and slats wouldnt trade futures (14' picks) without potential of locking him up long term..

I think the main thing to take into account is that Clowe and the Rangers had already spoken about an extension before he was traded. Clowe didn't want to be traded anywhere without signing an extension. The Rangers are doing the smart thing in seeing how he fits in before giving it to him but the groundwork for the deal is already done.

Please stop with your non sense.He will get nothing close to 6M ayear..and your Clarkson comparison is not close...Clowe is a badass who hits like a truck..He would eat Clarkson for lunch.

Yeah, I don't see him getting anywhere near $6M per year. Lucic is a different situation entirely. Younger and had a 30 goal season under his belt.

Glad he played well last night. You could tell he was playing with something to prove. Hopefully he can keep it up.

With Pyatt on the ice, he looked like Gabs.

If Dorsett can come back healthy before season's end, the best part of the Gaborik trade becomes not having to see Pyatt in th ice. I had decent expectations for him coming into the year and he's come nowhere close to them.
