By the way, you have to think Sather is drunk tonight due to Casino Night. Haha, someone should have a nurse to watch him.

I love Gabby but he'll disappear in the playoffs, as usual. Add in the fact that he's a shell at this point anyway. I was sad when we traded him but Glen's looking like he was right on the money there.

P.S. JT's mugshot is hilarious. He's got such a **** eating grin on his face.

He is faced about now, along with Jimmy "Fortunate to have him" Dolan.

If 300K is really the only gap left, the deal will get done.

It'll be just north of 6M, signing bonuses and a limited NTC probably.

I don't care about any bridge-jumpers, I'll get to watch my favorite player stay a Ranger for his career. I'll be very happy.

Yeah. Pittsburgh is overrated, but the Bruins would be more scary. Although, they're better off trading for a defender with Seidenberg out.

You really think that the Gaborik trade is scarier then Pitt having

Crosby
Malkin
Kesler

That team will win.

Yes, he's gambling all his money away, since he's about to steal 36M or so back.

And that he will, because he'll be in forced retirement halfway through the contract. How anyone can be on board with this is beyond me.

Sather has offered him 6 MILLION a year and yet Sather is the Stingy one?

They have zero depth on wings, their defense is crap and their goaltending is a crapshoot.

With the way he has been playing... irrelevant. With Pitt adding Kesler? Their defense and goaltending is still

Their offense just became even scarier though.

The deal is going to get done. Just don't see anyway it doesn't at this point. Well, Sather definitely could have spent that $6MM much more wisely.

Yes. He went from a lowball offer (which Callahan deserved, BTW) to almost meeting Callahan's demand. Stingy about the little things (300K difference), not the big things (millions of dollars)

If Boston hypothetically gets Gaborik, and Pittsburgh gets Kesler. I'll still take Boston.. Boston is the cream of the crop in the East, not Pittsburgh.

You do realize that adding Kesler adds one of the best defensive centers in the game.

Also, Fleury has been solid this year, obviously, the playoffs is a wild card and there defense has been fine.

We have way more issues then Pitt.

Let's just hope Sather isn't too drunk, and mistakingly agrees to a 12 year, $120 million contract.

Win? Probably but who knows. I think losing Sutter is going to have a negative effect in the short term.

Incidentally if I'm Pittsburgh I would go after Martin Brodeur. He is the perfect backup for Fleury going into the playoffs.

Pittsburgh does need to improve their bottom-6. It's a mish mosh.

They replace Sutter with Kesler, the FAR superior player.

What negative effect?

Kesler offers, at the minimum, similar production and is infinitely more physical. Also would be a great "heart and soul" replacement for Callahan.

Agreed. Boston's the team to beat right now in the East. That team is just built for playoff hockey.
