If Michael Sauer gets healthy, the Rangers will have the best D in the NHL...the best goalie in the NHL...and one of the best offensive groups in the NHL once Gabby gets back.
We definitely got better yesterday getting Nash but to be fair, you're getting way too carried away with our team especially as it relates to the offense. Temper your enthusiasm a little; it works better in the long run.
Man, Sauer getting better and coming back at the level he was at before the Phaneuf hit would be a huge boost for the Rangers.
We'd be adding that 2nd pairing dman the team could definitely use. His right handed shot (which he manages to get on net, unlike some other dmen we have) and great positioning would really fill a team need since he's been out. It would take a lot of pressure and ice time off the shoulders of a d corps that could otherwise get exhausted during what we hope will be a very long season. And his physicality would certainly be great too.
Not to mention how steady he is with the puck. He consistently makes calm, smooth passes out of our zone to help alleviate pressure and start the transition.
Excited about the idea of him 1) recovering and living a good life outside of hockey, and 2) giving this team the dependable ass kicking presence we've missed.
