Crosby out. Boston is banged up. Caps, Habs, and Sabres collapsed. I mean the Leafs were even challenging for a playoffs spot for a while, that's how weak the east is.

Rangers might make it to the finals, or they could be one great opposing checking line from being knocked out in the 1st round.
RE bold number #1: Based on what?

The fact that they play to their strengths?

Play with a strong commitment to defense and supporting their best player in net?

Lead all NHL teams in hits?

Lead all NHL teams in blocked shots?

(edit: not sure if they actually lead NHL in those categories, but I remember reading earlier they were near tops in both.)

To me, thats called, "playoff hockey".

To say the Rangers are playing over their heads is about as big of an assumption as I've ever seen.

If anything we havent seen the best of this Rangers team.

Once/if Dubinsky and Richards (both proven playoff performers), get their heads out of their *****, you'll see an even deeper offensive group.

As Staal continues to find his game, he can cut into McDonagh and Girardis minutes. That gives us 3 top defenders who are ready to log 25+ minutes, at the minimum.

Finally, our PP has been beyond disastrous.

Once/if Torts can figure wtf is going on there, thats just another boost.

RE bold number #2: The Bruins won the Cup while Crosby and Malkin were out, are we going to discredit their success as well?

As a Kings fan would love to see him in LA but I am not holding my breath DL is not good at landing the big fish. He will likely stay in the East, and you have to figure NJ will find a way to sign him.
If not I would like him to sign with Philly as we end up with their players.
If he does come west I think Detroit would have the best shot. The wild stuff is just the marketing department trying to create a buzz to sell seasons.
Chicago has some cap room as well do they not?

I would love to see him on the Islanders and I know he is good friends with a few of the players on the team, but he has made it clear that he wants a winning organization which the Isles won't be until the building is resolved.

I'm guessing Detroit, Boston or NYR

Assuming the Devils can close out this season relatively strong and that their financial situation does not in fact hinder their ability to make moves, I would think they're the obvious frontrunner.

But, on the off chance that he bolts to the Rangers, NJ could always replace him with Hugh Jessiman.

Chicago needs defense i could see them landing suter,rather than a winger .But adding a another great winger like parise, would make that team probabaly the highest scoring team in the league

If you were to place a bet that he was either to land on a original six team or any other of the 24 teams, what way would you bet? I would take the original six fully knowing he will not be playing north of the border.

What kind of money will teams be offering? I'd be willing to give him 8-10 years at a $7.5-8 million cap hit. That's my ballpark range for him as a Leafs fan.

Do the Leafs or Habs offer him the best opportunity?

Ottawa is interesting, though.

In my humble opinion I think:

60% New Jersey
25% Rangers
10% Detroit
4% Boston
.5% Minnesota
.5% Tampa

Just my opinion i do not see think he would be interested in non-playoff or bubble teams. I think he would want a team closer to winning now.
Also I just wanted to stir the pot with leaf fans as it gives me amuzal how every high level talent is rumored to go there.

I was wondering if people would ratehr bet on him siging with one of the original

With Det Bos and NYR i would take the original six.

From what I've heard, it'll be between Minnesota and Boston. Jersey just doesn't have the money right now. I expect that his rights will be dealt at the draft and whoever makes the trade, will get his name on a contract before he hits UFA status.

Speculation has it that he would sign with 2 teams and Boston is one of them.

IMO, the other would be NJ.

Boston... With Savard on LTIR we hve plenty of cap space

A LOT will depend on how cheaply some of the guys on our team resign next year. We have a lot of FA signings to do. Hopefully no one demands too much (looking at you Rask)

Yep i could see Horton moved out ,to gain his rights and him signing long term in beantown.This isnt to say Horton is a bad player but Parise is just that much better
