I'm curious what the logic would be to trading Boyle and signing Lapierre.
Boyle is a bad word around here watch your mouth.
I'd be for buying out Richards and signing Lecavalier to a reasonable deal. It's basically a good 1 for 1 trade while shedding cap.
As far as AV's ideal lines he said he thought we had the makings of two solid offensive lines don't recall him saying he only wanted two scoring lines a defensive line and a checking line, but even if that's the case having good center depth and using one of Brass or VL on the third doesn't kill that dream.
Sather and the Rangers brass are meeting with Newport tonight regarding Lundqvist. They also represent Richards. Girardi and Zuccarello too. The smart move is buying Richards out like TB did with Vinny. Sather doesn't always make the "smart move". He has been running this organization for 13 years. There are kids graduating from the 8th grade this week who were born when Sather became Rangers boss. The Rangers have had one good year in those 13. Take away the 04-05 lockout year.
