The bar is set REALLY low around here...
Or because we have to resign our RFAs that are huge parts to this team and its future?

I agree Richards should be gone but other than him, who is eating up cap space that shouldn't be? Nash? Lundqvist?

Moore is nice feel good story, but he hasn't played hockey in more than 12 months. Zero interest.

Moore provides much more offense than any of those guys.

Thornton does that to heavyweights too. 4th line tough guy or McIlrath to complement Dorsett will be just fine.

We need much more skill, not only in the top 6, but the bottom 6. I want NHL players who can generate offense and can effectively move the puck up the ice, not more guys who keep hitting. We already have Dorsett, Haley and Boyle as options, now we need to surround them with talent.
It's perplexing. I actually don't mind Moore, because he's only making $1M, but every year we're handing out $1.5M to 4th liners, it never makes a difference, and Ranger fans want us to keep doing it!

If our 4th line is some combo of Moore-Boyle-Dorsett, that's over $4M for a job AHL players could pretty much do. Spend the money elsewhere.

Anyone here think Sather could've created a similar package for Ryan? He is exactly what this team needs, pretty pissed that they couldn't pull the trigger on a trade.

Negative, our d usually wins along boards and with their speed. We are ineffective in front of Hank.I watch every game.

Yeah...but with their prospect pool, they could afford to. We don't have the prospect depth to give up Kreider and Miller.

understood. i guess i'm looking at the player he was before he left the nhl for a year... hoping that Moore is the one we got. that's the type of player our bottom 6 needs..

we'll see i guess...

Nope.

They still need to find a way to get someone LIKE that.

They still did well. Can't believe they pried Silfverberg out of Ottawa! and got basically two 1st rounders.

Give Haley an honest shot. He doesn't hurt you, he'll take on anyone, he's got a mean streak, good team guy and we have him under contract.
