2014 1st or 2nd

Rangers get some secondary scoring and a player who can play top 9 and signed for another year at 2.3mil in Kennedy. Hamilton is a capable youngster who is slotted to be a 3C down the road with a 2way game. And a pick for good measure.

thoughts?
No manbearpigs allowed, sorry.

We're the best looking team in the league, and you offer us Tyler Kennedy?

i didnt mean that towards you, it just quoted what you said in the last post as well.. But BrianBoyle on that note.. I just meant kadri had a great year like stepan and brass was a ppg basically for us since the trade and playoffs.. so i was just saying you prob one of posters on the board that gives stepan **** for not uping his game this year.. not literally hating him haha

Stepan was a beast for most of the year, and Brass was great down the stretch but he's always been a notoriously inconsistent player. He looks nothing like he did last year. He overpasses the puck and is not that hard to shut down. He's about as average a player as you'll find. Good hands and a good skater, but not much else.

I don't even bring up Stepan because I don't feel like having people **** on him in more threads than they already do. He hasn't been as good as last year, but he's still been a valuable player to this team despite most people acting like he's awful.

my bad, didn't mean it the way it sounded.. but I am the same way..

i think it would be best if brass isn't in future plans to definitely move him out with mdz if and only if g resigns and maximize the return..

On Kadri vs. Brassard: I agree Kadri has a little more swagger and a little more scoring finish, but Brassard is bigger, quicker and a slicker puck distributer. Kadri had a nice lockout season, but we've also seen really nice stretches from Brassard as well - and in fact he's in the midst of one now. I see them as the same player with minor differences.

If Brassard was more consistant he would be lethal. Hated playing against him when he was a BJ. Has the tools to be a solid top 6 imo.

IF, keyword, IF.

He never has, and at his age probably never will be. If CBJ thought so they wouldn't have moved him for 1 1/2 years of Gaborik.

If Brassard had more than just good hands he could be beast. His skill set is massively overrated, IMO. His shot is barely good enough to break the 15 goal barrier.

I can tolerate offensive inconsistency if a player has another dimension to his game, but Brassard is as one-dimensional as they come. Awful defensively, not physically imposing, not a good forechecker. He's useless when he's not generating offense (which unfortunately happens too often for my liking).

Exactly. At least when someone like, Anisimov., was struggling offensively, he could PK and play well in a defensive role. Brassard can't do that.

Big reason why we suck defensively is our forwards are mostly on dimensional.

Kadri has shown more consistency throughout half a season last year, than Brassard has shown in any stretch throughout his entire career. He was terrible last night vs CBJ.

Whiffs or doesn't bury 4 prime shots, then stops skating, then loses his check on a goal.

All in a average night for Derrick Brassard.

Loser. PoS Loser.

Brutal game by him. Had several opportunities to take a one timer in a prime scoring area and lost the chance by hesitating.

Why the complete 180 on Brassard? I thought people were convinced he's a good 2C after being PPG in the playoffs and regular season.

There was a chance he was taking the next step at age 25 after being traded, but he has done nothing to capitalize on his good run since.

I'd love to go back 2 last season & see all of our reactions that

IMO, BY FAR

Our 2 best forwards are Kreider & Zucc

So funny how things change.

I'm recording Ducks game to see Vatanen. I love what I've heard.

After this week, I think it'll be time to start selling and accruing assets. The Flyers and Caps are leaving us in the dust. I don't see us getting a WC either.

Dan Girardi should be numero uno on our selling list.
