Dubi has Dubi to blame. He made himself disposable.

Exactly. Comments were not that far off.

This. He went from an almost untouchable player and possible captain to someone who got thrown into every single NYR trade proposal. And for good reason.

I don't think Dubi was necessarily referring to only the fanbase, but the organization as well. And we all know that Sather is obsessed with acquiring big names probably moreso than many other GMs in this league...Bure, Jagr, Redden, Gomez, Drury, Gaborik, Richards, Nash, the list goes on. I know a lot of people don't like Dubi, but he was telling it like it is with that comment.

What teams wouldn't be clamoring to trade a 10 goal regular season/0 goal playoff scorer making 4 million a year in a package for Rick Nash? Nash outscored both Arty and Dubi by himself last year. Dubi racking up that big goal total of 1. Not denying that Rangers are always looking to make the big move, but let's not pretend that every team in the league A) wouldn't want a player of Nash's caliber if it had the chance and B) Wouldn't pay that price for him. It's not exclusive to the New York Rangers.

It's funny how some players are romanticized. I get it, really do. But let's just think about this for a second. This guy **** the bed after he cashed in on a big payday. Was never the same. He's got 15 goals so far over the last 3 seasons. 15! 0 playoff goals in that 11-12 run, when we could have used every goal we could get. He's not in NY right now because of his play. If he was scoring 20 goals and contributing in the playoffs, I think he'd have a case. He made himself expendable and has only himself to blame for where he is.

Again, we can't apply comments directed at NYR management to the fans of the team. Fans are not the front office who decides what is best for the team. Everyone loves shiny new toys, but Sather shouldn't be subjected to that same mentality.

You can however say Sather wants to bring star power and big names to NYC because New York expects the best and brightest.

I agree completely with your post.

Petr Prucha was the first name that came to mind. I couldn't believe how many people wailed and gnashed their teeth when he was no longer a Ranger.

He wasn't referring to the fan base at all. The fan base didn't trade him. We don't makes the calls.

Don't disagree one bit about the textbook part, but Nash lobbied for it. I would have preferred him wearing an A

You don't need me to answer that, the results speak for themselves. But to be clear, I was linking his captaincy to my use of the word "led", which you called out.

Haha exactly. Huge ego and sabotaged his own career. Him and his buddy Umberger...

Dubinsky is 3rd liner. I liked him. Totally overvalued his own ability. He got paid.

Next.

I also don't want to pay $170 for GCL as I didn't find it to be worth it after purchasing it last season.

Are their any high quality streaming services out there that aren't $150++ that I can purchase to watch tonights game??

Because the teams did not play each other last season, all but Tyutin and Stralman will be going against their former clubs for the first time.

"I don't look at it as a distraction," Columbus coach Todd Richards said. "It had to come to this point eventually where you have to show up. It's like running into your old girlfriend on the street. You're probably not looking forward to the first time but it's got to happen."

Why not boyfriend? We're the girls now?

maybe showcasing Boyle who is an UFA i cant believe some people rather keep him and take the chance of losing him for nothing like Prust. Rangers better trade some UFA.. do what the Sharks did. get younger and faster.... same with the Ducks.. they have alot of youth and still playing well... i really want Etem and Palmeri on the Rangers..id gladly deal Girardi to get either one if they became available..

They're only into bargain hunting in Columbus. Top shelf is not interesting.

good God...our 3rd line makes me want to cringe for a multitude of reasons. switch Pyatt and Boyle with Miller and Brassard, and it looks ok, but ughhh.

either way LGR!!!
