yea I can't see him doing much anymore, he's older, lost a stride and he's not a 3rd line option. I bet he gets a job somewhere though just not here

I don't see this as having anything to do with the Rangers. I suspect that he shared ice time with other Rangers because he was in NY, not because NY had any interest in bringing him back, and it should not be surprising that he still owns real estate here.

Don't see him as anything close to a fit, both with regards to play style or available lineup positions.

they should have never let Jagr leave lol but i say no to Kovalev. he was a very good player but now isnt the same type of player... 1 goal in 22 games last year in the KHL. he seems like he is washed up...

If he is with the rangers it will be the yearly human interest camp story that Slats loves to Invite. Nedved, Kasparaitus, etc. etc.

Love Kovalev, favorite player of all time, but that ship has sailed. I remember Kovalev saying he'd never play for the NYR again after we re-acquired him from PIT only to ship him to MTL.

I still shudder to think at the numbers he could have put up if he played to his potential every night.

That said hell no.

Why would we sign another RW? Especially one that's completely one-dimensional? Can't see him working with Torts.

I'm usually all for experiments, but no.

If we're going for old guys, I think a guy like Straka has a lot more left in the tank at 40 than Kovalev does.

Huge fan, but as others have stated, no.. unless the 4th line, and I dont see him wanting to do that.

I absolutely love the guy, for a bunch of reasons... but no. He isn't Jagr.

Could only see him as a power play specialist.

If we were gonna sign a player in that age bracket, it should have been Ray Whitney.

Shortened season, 3rd line and 2nd pp duties........hmmm. I don't think he would mesh with Torts but who knows his motivations here. He could come in and serve as a great vet, or as history has shown us he won't play hard.

Kasparaitis did one of the best things a Rangers player has done so far post-lockout, in making that Olympics video with Tyutin. For the life of me, I can't find it anywhere online and I look for it a lot

"This is my wife, Ingelaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. She's mad because we beat Sweden yesterday."

"This is Italian police officer, this is how they stand"

"This is Toots. Say 'hi' Toots"
"Hi."

I wouldn't be at all surprised if we shopped around 1 year deals on projects with excess space that we (I actually don't know if we have with Redden on board)

But we could use a PP guy, for experimentation in the top 6. Per-Age Skroder, for example.

I'd be fine with it. Still has great hands, if he screws up he'll be gone.

Love this video, as well as most of the other Bobby Granger commercials. However, none of them come close to that Olympics video Kaspar shot.

kasparaitis and lundqvist were on the team together? i'd have though darius was gone by then.

kovy to the rangers like camby and kurt thomas to the knicks. sure, i'm fine with that.
