If Staal is not ready you have to consider him. Or if trade DZ which I disagree with because he has a good contract and I think he will be even better under AV.

Fantastic contract for Anisimov. I want him back.

Sign Briere.

Rick Nash is more like Jaromir Jagr than Eric Lindros, yes. Given that the Rangers have him under contract for 5 more years, I don't want him throwing his body around needlessly.

I understand the hockey culture of being tough, playing through pain and etc. Am I the only one that feels the injuries Bergeron played through was an act of stupidity but not bravery? There has to be a point where playing through certain injuries is stupid, not brave. He possibly shaved off significant time off his career trying to play through the multitude of injuries he did.

"Tired of losing" has got to be one of the most silliest excuses I've heard in hockey. His game never was shifted towards big checks and fighting, he's soft for his size. No shame in that if he can still produce. But if you're expecting him to play similar to Milan Lucic physicality wise, prepare to be eternally disappointed.

I sure hope not. I like Ference, but any defensemen the Rangers pick up should be bargain bin pick ups.

I'd take a flyer on Komisarek at under a million.

It's misleading to say that Vigneault loves Pyatt. When Pyatt's game dipped in Vancouver he was removed from the Sedins and exited Vancouver quickly.

There's going to be a lot of interest in Ference, I think.

Ference is a lefty and he is 34.

AV shut Malhotra down for the year last season. Don't think you'll see him sign here.

$4.5 million for 2 more seasons. Risky, but I'm somewhat interested.
OT, but I would absolutely kill to have a guy like Purcell on the Rangers.

edit: Didn't realize how expensive he was. :0

Why is that an excuse? What's the motivation if ur not going to win anyway? And no I don't expect lucic but more like Horton with more skill

Wasnt a liability with St. Louis, Gionta, Maurice Richard, Hagelin and several other "small guys". Briere?

Size is only an issue if you let it be. And the Swedish League MVP has made me a believer several times on this team. His first appearance immediately made our PP better. In his 2nd go around, he played a much better overall game. Just like I expect someone to after more experience.

The guy is a Ranger and I hope he remains a Ranger until further evidence proves me wrong.


I think he will do even better in AV system of play.

I would be very interested in another ex-Ranger in Dom Moore if he's ready to resume his career. Can play LW too if Miller or Lindberg grab a spot.

This type of signing would make a ton of sense.

Buy out Richards only if you can get a proper replacement.

Jarome Iginla is a guy I would love on the Rangers, but he is not a replacement.
We need a proper top 2 center... Fillipula?

Brassard. They need a 3c. Miller/Lindberg. Stop trying to overpay for those guys on the UFA market.

I would probably rather have a cheaper Briere than Richards right now...
Get Briere at a less than 5 million dollar rate for less than 4 years and I could like that.

Ok, now you have to stop and take a deep breath.

Briere on a 1 or 2 year deal for 2-3 million tops. The guy can't stay healthy and is a RW only at this point.

smallest forward corps in the NHL with Briere added?

Kreider-Stepan-Nash
Hagelin-Brassard-Briere
Zuccarello-Lindberg/Miller-Callahan
Pyatt (ew)-Boyle-Dorsett

I was advocating for Moore a few weeks ago. He skates well, is a pain to play against. Center or LW. Great PKer.

If Boyle is moved, I would love a tandem of Nystrom-Moore on the PK.

Iginla or Jagr make sense for a top 6 offense-first role and can occupy playing time when Callahan is recovering from shoulder surgery. Don't think this club has the balls to push the captain into a full time checking role.

Iginla or Jagr would not push Callahan down in the line-up at this point in their careers.

They're both better offensive talents.
