Good read for Ranger fans now that D Moore is back in NHL.

Kreider, Miller and #1 for Ryan? No thanks...Ottawa paid out the butt for Ryan.

We need much more skill, not only in the top 6, but the bottom 6. I want NHL players who can generate offense and can effectively move the puck up the ice, not more guys who keep hitting. We already have Dorsett, Haley and Boyle as options, now we need to surround them with talent.
1 dimensional guys are the issue. Boyle and Dorsett are a good start. Moore is a good complimentary player.

I guess we will all have to agree to disagree.

I don't wanna beat that offer, that's very fair for Ryan.

What is it with HF's love of Bobby Ryan? Is it "the goal?" Idk.

The Sens may be a contender next year. Ryan could either boom or bust, so we'll see.

You don't know anything about Dorsett, do you?

i feel like if the rangers make a trade (moving del zotto or staal) at this point it would be with either the canes, oilers or jets...

Pretty "meh" on Moore. Don't get the love.

Nice return for Ryan.

He did a spin-o-rama!

Like Ryan, but he's criminally overrated.

You don't need a big team full of guys who can drop the gloves. Assemble a team full of hockey players who have some balls. Guys that don't take **** from the opposition. Guys that have a high motor and hit with a purpose. If they can drop the gloves, it's an added bonus but fighting and toughness don't go hand-in-hand in today's NHL, imo.
Our current roster has a severe dirth of balls. Physically dominated by bos.......

Without change mcd and step will get hurt and then the passive tune on this board will Change. I'm sure we are going to address this issue.

Our PK sucked, our 4th line sucked. Moore is great at both jobs. He'll help our depth big time.

Eesh. Nystrom deal is 4 years, $2.5m per. Reminds me of Prust last year. Too much.

You would have just continued to tout the nonsense that the rangers D are unable to win in front of their own net, even though anyone who watches knows they win the vast majority of the time.

The only logical thing you could be thinking is that the rangers D don't fight players when they bump the king. That is where your idea of "lack or toughness" comes from

Nystrom got 4 years and $10M

Quote:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed forward Eric Nystrom to a four-year, $10 million contract. He will make $2 million in both 2013-14 and 2014-15 and $3 million in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

Are you now telling me what I think? This is getting better.

As you continue to tout the nonsense that I want goons and only care about fighting. Please continue showing your foolishness.

Glad Dominic Moore gets to resume his NHL career here in New York. I hope he can start to find some peace and hopefully the team wins and gives him and his family something to be happy about.

Welcome back Dominic!

Ah yes, tiny sample size is always the best way to judge anyone.

We should count how many times Prust fought Thornton and beat him up, perhaps.
