Yeah 3 or 4 30th OV picks would help us so much.

Although I suppose we'd get 1st overall every year as well.

Management doesn't seem to like Kane's attitude. Sure maybe I asked for too much. But Kane must come back in any deal involving Hank. I'd lose it if the best player we got was Patrick Sharp.

Really? I'd think management is just fine with their Hart Trophy candidate and playoff performer.

Asking for Kane is downright delusional, let alone adding 3 first rounders and Crawford. Chicago wouldnt trade Kane for the entire Rangers roster, he's that good. He is a young elite, offensive superstar who is the best player on the best team in the world.

Patrick Sharp is a world class player, not sure why you'd be upset in getting him in a deal.

A lot of the problems stem from being mediocre.
Middle of the pack draft choices
Even when we had high draft choices , most did not pan out.
A lot of bad free agent signings
The Blackhawks built from kids, used draft choices wisely, prudent free agent signings and good trades

Do you ignore what I say? What does his performance have to do with his attitude. Just this past summer there were rumblings of him being traded because of his constant partying and binge drinking. Blackhawks management doesn't like it and has had it with him when it comes to that crap.

That doesn't mean they'll throw him away for nothing, but if he keeps it up while they tell him repeatedly to cut it out, I don't see why they wouldn't at least entertain the IDEA of trading him for a very fair, if not better return.

Without Kane, and with Hank, that team still wins multiple Cups.

I don't seem to remember Hawks management commenting about Kane.

When all the ******** at the hockey news, cbc, tsn, ect try to call out Lundqvist as a playoff failure this is a game people should point too.

What else do you want him to do?

What a pathetic showing. Probably won't be watching the last 2 games. So disgusted with this team.

"We're obviously disappointed with how it played it out, and Patrick is aware of that fact. But at this point, it's a private matter. I think, out of respect for Patrick, we're not going to comment further. We're going to look forward and try to focus on things in improving our team leading into the summer."

“Would I have liked to see him in the photos? Of course not,” Rocky Wirtz said of Patrick Kane.

But the Hawks are more than just disappointed in Kane. A team source told the Sun-Times that some in the organization have suggested that Kane seek help.

Now we're trying to trade Hank? I thought maybe after a few hours things wouldn't be so ridiculous.

Ashamed to be a Rangers fan and not because of the team or Torts, but the moronic drivel, whiny, quitter attitude around here and the Rangers FB/Twitter/Instagram.

I'm usually optimistic, but it's clear if he is to win a Cup, it isn't going to be as a Ranger. Not his fault.

trade hank because he deserves better. Also will expose this team as being bottom 5 and upstart a rebuild that should've started in 2004.

win win for both sides.

Why not point them to the olympic gold medal game when he did insane amazing shouldn't be able to be done saves? He did like 5 of them alone in the last 3 minutes of the game.

You guys have to be honest with my question here.

Are the Rangers advancing past the Caps bad for the image of hockey?

Every playoff series this team has been involved in since 2009 has been very boring. The NHL after all is an entertainment type business too and I think exposing new fans to Rangers stone age playing style is bad for hockey. What are your thoughts?

no it's not nonsense... it's nauseating though...

Look at how Geico is promoting Backstrum and the Capitals, even NBC for that matter is totally focused on Ovechkin and his turnaround season. Bettman want his pet projects and expansion teams to do well.

No. We are New York. If anything, they'd rig it in our favor for a NY team to make the Finals for increased viewership and revenue.

I don't think the Bruins are boring at all. They are a very physically engaging team that embody the closest thing to the Broadstreet Bullies. They are very marketable in that aspect of toughness and playing hard nosed hockey. They are also a much more entertaining team than the Rangers when they get their cycle game going.

A ny team winning would be great for the league.

However, they probably just want a Crosby - Ovi matchup. They'd promote the **** out of that. And then some.

I'm not talking about city, rather playing styles.

Tell me with a straight face that the Rangers are an entertaining team to watch.

Like for a neutral casual fan, would you want them to watch tapes of Rangers games?
