I think the Rangers have a long and checkered history of making the big move.

I'd rather they not.

But not in this type of situation where they've backed themselves into a corner with little appealing pieces and no cap space.

Well yeah we have tried to make "big moves", I guess I should have said they dont really take risks of any "hockey trades".. They are like the Yankees, they try for the big salary dump trades while refusing to give up any good assets that fills a need.

and what? the Rangers have plenty of appealing pieces for a trade, they just aren't willing to give them up.

It's possible we see Evander Kane traded today. Hearing there's a couple teams who have approached Jets.

Why, why, why? How does a pick that will get a return in 2-3 years help us now? Much rather have an actual player we know.

never understood why the Jackets were gonna trade the goalie who just won the vezina and then were gonna be in the market for another. WTF kind of sense does that make

Also, even though the Rangers announced they wouldn't use their last compliance buyout on Richards this year, if something came up that was too good to pass up, couldn't they still technically do it this year or is the cut off date over?

Negotiations through social media. Think CBJ is bad kid? Guess we'll send you to Edmonton.

I believe this year's compliance buyout cutoff is 5pm today...perhaps they pushed it back?

Asked Gordie Clark if we'll have a reason to get excited before the third round. He said that he didn't want to show up so early...

Are we going to acknowledge that Staal's value is diminished with his eye problem? Or just sweet that under the rug so we can make these fun, yet unrealistic trade proposals?

don't see anything wrong with letting Miller play on the 3rd line this season on wing. Yes his ceiling is better than that but to get acclimated to the nhl put him in a bottom 6 role this year. Bottom 6 needs to get younger and faster

Yeah. Which would not surprise me if very little actually happens.

Pulling the trigger on something big takes a set. How many GM's really have what it takes....and a good dance partner?

As a GM the first rule is almost certainly not to do something merely to do something.
