Obviously you want to improve every year, but we don't need to model our team after other teams.
We dont have a great team. The team that went to finals was dramatically different and last yrs team needed trade deadline deals to squeak into playoffs. At no point in playoffs or regular season did we play like a great team. We consistently played from behind with half the roster not contributing to the offense. If not for Hank ............

I would have done MDZ and Miller for Ryan, give them what they were looking for.

They didn't give up nearly that much. Silfverberg is good but the rest is meh.
depends if they wanted Mdz..but yes, I would have done that deal no question.

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.
Chicago and Boston just showed that if you want to be a contender - you need quality depth, not "AHL players"

I'd rather Sather work the trade market if he can, something he is actually good at (save clowe). we have plenty of trade chips if something makes sense.

Who's a bonafide sniper? 30 points in 46 games on the 2nd place team in the West? 57 points in 82 games the year before that? UFA in 2 years. I wouldn't move MDZ + Miller + 1st for Ryan. Not even close.

Anything better than Ottawa's offer is overpayment for Ryan.

Ryan is an overrated floater of a player. He has the talent to be a PPG player, but hasn't been able to become that despite playing with Getzlaf and Perry.

Am I the only one happy about the Rangers not doing anything except for signing Moore today?

Hamonic would be our fourth best defenseman. He's better than DZ, easily.

He was not anywhere close to on pace for 30 goals this season. He doesn't really make the payers around him better. He is a poor man's Nash. People want to get rid of Nash.

Why not go out and try to pry Yakupov away from Edmonton instead? MDZ + Miller + 1st? That would easily be enough for him. Dynamic, young, better contract.

Pretty happy about it. Still would like to see them do something similar to what Vancouver did with Y. Weber. But we don't need to wade in today. And we couldn't anyway.

Nope. Today has been very relaxing for me because we haven't done much.

He's a poor man's Nash and Ottawa gave up a bigger piece in Silf than anything we gave up for Nash.

I'm ecstatic. Been having a great day watching all these names go elsewhere. Only player I would have liked to have had was Ryan but that was a trade anyways.

I'm not saying I would or wouldnt do those deals.. I'm just saying he's better than given credit for by Ranger fans.

Kreider with AV's help will be a 30 goal guy. JT Miller under AV will develop nicely too.

I'm counting on AV big time to develop what we have. No need for stupid FA contracts.
