Exactly. He's been injured recently in San Jose. That's what I said. And quite possibly, that's the only reason San Jose traded him in the first place.

Not unexpected when he was playing on the 3rd/4th line and Torts was scared to use him and have him make a mistake.

Hopefully next year him and Miller get to learn on the job.

Not to defend Sather. But Lundqvist is an elite player that was drafted by this team.
Its a stretch and you know it.

Brassard's points in the last three seasons were 47, 41 and paced for 50 this season. That's exactly a second line center.

Wow. Saw this news on twitter when I got out of class and this is my first time commenting on it. I'm a bit surprised considering 1) this was a shortened season, 2) we got to the ECF last season, and 3) we got out of the first round this season. I was thinking he would definitely get at least one more year but I'd say I'm content with this move. I hope whoever is hired can fix our transition game as I think breaking out of our own zone is one of our major weaknesses (aside from the obvious one, scoring).

A stretch, but a franchise goalie none the less...Our drafting has been OK, not brutal. Brutal would be the majority of FA signings. Trades have been better than the rest

Torts! Finally! Fired!
Now fire Sather and we should be alright! Oh, buy out Richards...

I am okay with anyone as a repalacement at this point. Even Paul Maurice looks like a good candidate. The rest of the available HCs appears even better.

If you think the drafting has been so good, care to explain how the Rangers have ended up with zero elite homegrown players and very few homegrown depth players in 13(!!!!!!) years and counting?
Oddly, the Rangers rank 4th in GP among players they drafted since 2004. Those who have played in the NHL are scattered all over the place though. Korpikoski, Montoya, Byers, Dubinsky, Petruzalek, Cliche, Dupont, Pyatt, Russell, Sanguinetti, Anisimov, Grachev, Kundratek, Weise, Horak.

I love this, out with Torts and now bring in the offense, to me it should be a young new coach to the NHL that has guts and brings new air.

Lundqvist
Possibly Staal, before his eye.

Depth
Callahan
Dubinsky (Traded)
Stepan
Anisimov(Traded)
Girardi (undrafted)
Hags
Del Z

We haven't drafted elite offensive talent, but come on now.

I am of the opinion they need a wing more than a center.

Unless they resign Clowe, they are missing a top 6 wing. And I dont think Cally or Hags are top 6 locks either, either could be dropped to the 3rd line where they would fit.

Sather did say that Tortorella was shocked to hear the news, but that he took it like a gentleman. The decision is believed to be unrelated to the team’s 2012-13 regular-season record and second-round playoff elimination, but rather to the core belief by management that the club’s players had grown weary of Tortorella’s overbearing personality.
Someone has been watching the playoffs

Quote:
As for moving forward, Sather continued to be evasive about the type of coach he would like to hire. Yet he did point out there are similarities between the teams still alive fighting for the Stanley Cup – the Penguins and Bruins in the East finals, and the Kings set to take on the winner of Wednesday night’s Game 7 between the Blackhawks and Red Wings.

“If you look at the teams that are going to be contending for the Stanley Cup, there are specific ingredients that every team has and some teams don’t have,” Sather said. “I’d like to take the best of what those teams have and integrate them into our team.”

They attack. Don't collapse around the net. More aggressive.

It's a second line center on a team that doesn't score a lot of goals. People expect this team to be near the tops in goals scored without the players to do that.

Hopefully they consider Boucher. He would have better goaltending and defense to work with than what he had in Tampa, in addition to some good offensive guys. Worth a shot.

Plus he has that awesome scar
