Raymond didn't sign, correct?

I'd be interested in:

Jagr
Briere
Raymond
Stalberg

I'd consider:

Laperriere
Gordon

We do not have the cap space to sign any top 6 players. Not in any manner I can fathom it.

Who are the Rangers going to target to replace Clowe's 'role' on the team? I thought that was a vital aspect to the Rangers season turning around post deadline.

It would be nice to pick a up a 3C and move Richards to wing.

LOL at this. Clowe had a few good games. He was otherwise slow and a non-factor.

We will not be signing top 6 forwards. I think Jagr would be ok with top 9 minutes.

I would like to see Kristo make the team out of camp to fill in for Hagelin and Cally. Play him with Kreider and Richards or Brassard. Get him some confidence.

Clowe plays an important role but he costs too much. We can get Mashinter to fight and score three times in 40+ games for an 8th of the price and 3 less concussions. Sounds economically sound to me.

They do need a net front guy, especially with cally banged up. Don't currently have one in the system

You're right, nor should we anyway.. the UFA market is full of nothing but 2nd/3rd liners who are going to be severely overpaid. There is not one guy on the market who you can guarantee me is a top 6 guy.

Mueller? Not as rough and tumble obviously but will put up better offensive numbers, especially if Brass is feeding the kid the puck. Young and will cost less to boot.


Now, as stated in the other thread, signing Komisarek is so counter productive to this team it's ridiculous.

I'd rather have growing pains with McIlrath.

Would rather have Falk/Eminger and maybe a guy like Blum being brought in.

Just poking fun, I agree with you both. The reasoning for giving up a 2nd and early 3rd for 12 games of Clowe was because 'he filled a role', never-mind the fact that he was useless in most games. But it was justified because he filled a role. Terrible trade before hindsight, even worse with hindsight.

With the way Gorton/Sather talked up getting this character player, I wonder what they'll do to replace him. Interesting times ahead indeed.

Agreed. Briere was horribrutal last year, Stalberg is meh, Jagr is 84, Raymond is Hagelin-lite, Clarkson is streakier than the weather. There's nothing out there.

I still think the best way to add a top 6 guy is to move a defenseman. I think only Mcdonagh and Girardi are the only ones who should absolutely not be moved.

I don't like the idea of that experiment. Has Richards played wing in his career?

Has Brass played wing? One of the two need to make the move, or they are going to be playing on the 4th line

Nash or Kreider possibly. Would like to see one of them play in front of the net. See that size utilized.

richards has played LW before. he probably should move there as his skating was not good enough for a center this past season.

I'm assuming he was paired up with Lecavalier.

Maybe AV can use Stepan as the shutdown center.

Both are better on the move IMO. I'd like to find a 220+ pound guy who is a rock in front, doesn't need a great goal total (10 or so a season is fine) but is completely willing to battle in front all game.

Chicago has Bickel to do it, flyers have simmonds, blues have Stewart, etc etc. don't think those guys have tremendous value unless they are really special, teams tend to value guys who can skate more. But I do think adding one could make the offense more potent. Don't think you want to waste a guy who can move(like a nash or kreider) by parking him

is it too unconventional for the 4th line to be the shut down line and the 3rd line to be the energy line?

energy line could be something like Miller-Brassard-Kreider.. 3 very fast skaters, one playmaker and a guy who's projected to be a finisher.

then the 4th line could be the shut down line with something like boyle-haley-dorsett.

while Stepan is the 1c and Richards is the 2c.

just a thought.

I could definitely see that, and I could see AV playing that 3rd line many minutes a night if thats where he is.
