No worries folks, remember, it's not about this year. Our Lord and savior (C.K.) will arrive next season..Firsrt rookie to carry his team to a Championship and score every goal for his team in the playoffs as he does it!! Hallelujah!!!
lol @ all the people running to the nearest bridge.
There was really nothing out there to trade for. Sure, you would've liked to see the team improve. They made a big push for Nash and Howson said no, can't complain there. Most teams that you would consider contenders didn't do anything either, obviously the market just wasn't there this year. Too many teams think they're still in it.
horrible horrible horrible horrible horrible acquisition. wouldn't give up a bag of pucks for john scott let alone a 5th rounder. the guy most likely will not step on the ice for the rangers this season
Can people stop with this crap about us being first in the east. Being first in the east doesn't mean you don't have any holes or have the best team or the best chance to win a cup. We're not good enough to win the cup with this current roster. Our bottom 2 lines give us nothing offensively and AA and Hagelin at this point are 3rd liners playing in the top 6. We've been doing it all year with smoke and mirrors. We'll get exposed in the playoffs.
For the first time during Glen Sather's tenure, there was actually a legitimate reason for him to make additions to his team at the deadline, and after years of doing it when he shouldn't have, he doesn't do it when he finally has a team worthy of it! Great stuff...yet, when you look at the other deals, you can't fault him. The price for rentals was obviously way too high. I'm glad we didn't give up a 1st for Gaustad, for example. Very happy we didn't make a horrible deal for Rick Nash.
This team needs a big addition, but you can't rush moves like that. There will be ample opportunities to do so at the draft and during next season.
I agree Sting. I would have been interested in Pahlsson or Kostitsyn considering they went cheap in a sellers market but other than that, there wasn't much out there. Didn't think the Scott for a 5th move was necessary but I'll wait until I see him play to judge it. I remember people killing Shelley for a late pick here a couple of years ago and he actually came and played pretty well down the stretch.
