He'll be resigned.

oh I'm sure you will re-sign him, but does he continue to center Jagr or do you look for other options?

The only reason they'll resign him would be to center Jagr, so yes if he's in NY he's on Jagr's line.

I don't see where you get that. He looks to me like he's playing the same way he has been all year, only without the postitive results.

I think part of the problem with Ranger fans is that whenever a player is in a slump of any kind, we automatically chalk it up to a lack of hustle/heart/desire/etc. See the thread about Jagr's hip flexor for more of what I mean.

Jagr's a different story, I'm not even going there again. As far as Nylander goes, he certainly doesn't look the way he did earlier in the season. He's has gotten points in his last two games, but with the puck he seems to not be doing much in the way of playmaking, and that's his game. His shotout attempt was bad news last night. It didn't even look like he angled his blade up. Same goes for Straka. I'm a big fan of both of those guy's, but a duck's a duck.

Again, I have to disagree. Nylander's been doing all he can, I think he's just getting worn out from being on the ice so much through the first ~50 games.

The shootout attempt I agree was frustrating because if he had just been able to lift it a few inches then he would have had a tally, but I hardly think that it correlates to lack of effort.

I dont always understand that "playing with heart" people like to bring up when talking about skill players like Jagr and Nylander. This is 2 players who since they where kids have played a certain style of hockey and it have gotten them through all the ranks and drafts they needed to go trough to get where they are today. And it takes a lot of desire to get there. And as some one pointed out he is playing the way he have done all season but maybe not as successful as before. But you have that in all players, even if they are grinders or playmakers the form dips and goes up from time to time. But since the grinders role is more easy to play he have an easier task to get out of the bad form.

Think Nylander stay as long as Jagr stay.

Unfortunately? Nylander has been one of the few players who have produced for the team this season... He's on pace for a career year, what more do you want from him?

This team desperately needs a C and you don't want our best C re-signed?

Apparently if the team is losing, then it's EVERYONE's fault unless they can literally perform miracles like healing blind people and walking on water.

I would tend to think Nylander stays... however I would like to see him away from Jagr more often.

For around 3m or whatever it will take, its a must to resign him. Thats really little dough these days.

Nope. I don't think he's a top C. The 1st line center....REFUSES to shoot. I wouldn't mind him playmaking on the 2nd line or what not....but I just can't stand the guy and we all know that if it wasn't for Jags the guy would really be nothing. He's got just about no speed....no shot....hasn't thrown 1 hit all season....never goes in front of the net and battles for position.

Well he does have 18 goals which is 2 goals less than jagr. So if your theory about him never shooting is correct, your saying that jagr is just a crappy goal scorer...

No I'm saying that Nylander is having a very good year while Jagr is not....but let's be honest...most of Nylanders goals are tap ins, banks, deflections, rebounds, etc

No I was comparing him to Jagr. Jagr is a goal scoring force...Nylander is a playmaker
