Rather pay Doan than Visnovsky. I still think he doesn't take more than $5 million from a true contender even though he could probably get more from another interested team.

Don't think the style changes much. Perhaps we can get a few more scoring chances off the rush as opposed to the dump and chase/cycling routine that we're used to. But I don't see any real shift in the game plan.

Problem with Doan is that he'll want a multi-year deal, and we'll need that money next year to re-sign our RFAs.

According to Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic, Shane Doan’s camp hasn’t heard from prospective Coyotes owner Greg Jamison recently and is planning to make a list of teams that he is interested in joining.
I expect and hope the Rangers will be on that list.

Doan would be great, but at a MAX of 2 years and $5 mil per. I hope Sather wouldn't offer more than that, and I think he will get offered more elsewhere.

I would like to see a 2 yr deal worth 5 mill per....but im sure he could get more somewhere else. 3 yrs would be tough...considering how our guys will need contracts

Looks like Zipay agrees with us

Oh, no kidding, I'd almost not want my team to score goals if after every goal they said it was for a case of tasty cakes. Watching the Flyers vs the Jets that one game where the final score was 9-8, that was horrible to listen to.

I'm not sure Arnott will come to NY, I think they tried to sign him in the past and he refused.

It probably has something to do with the fact of being an ex devil and all. Although, he certainly would be an upgrade at our 3rd line center position.

Rofl true. I don't see any downside in a one-year deal though.

Doan has a wife and 4 kids, why would he move cross country to Westchester to live for 2 years, than possibly retire?

Unless...he is planning to retire AND living here after that.

Huge decision for him to make after being in the Phoenix area for so long.

Would be a nice change of scenery for him and his family though. I don't give him anything more than two years.

Because he's a professional hockey player and he may feel that this is the best hockey opportunity for him. Not saying he will, but that would be a reason why.

No to Arnott. He's in the twilight of his career. I admit I'm not in love with the idea of Boyle as a fixture on the 3rd line, but I don't think Arnott is an upgrade in any sense.

That being said, I think there may be an upgrade or two available out there.

Well they can always cross their fingers with JT Miller.

Right now though, the Rangers priority should be acquiring that depth pairing Dman/PP triggerman.

I know there are a couple trade options, is there anybody left as a UFA that fits that mold?

Now that we acquired the 30 goal scorer most people wanted, and our lineup is already looking much better, what do you think of taking a flyer on a high risk high reward guy like Huselius?

If we can get him to sign a year marker, worst case scenario he ends up on ltir, best case we have Hagelin - Boyle - Hueselius as a 3rd line which would likely be very productive?

Actually, Huselius would be low risk, potential high reward. I was looking at him, and Kurtis Foster, who's a right-handed dman. The question is whether or not Huselius is healthy. If he is, we could give him a 1 year deal with performance bonuses. If he doesn't earn them then he doesn't cost as much against the cap. And either way his cap space is freed up to re-sign our RFAs next year.
