Collberg is a very dynamic player. There's upside there, but Snow still screwed the pooch on this one.

Are you saying when Zucc comes back, they'll have less grit? If so, you're wrong. He's one of the grittiest players on the NYR.

Collberg is a solid prospect. Snow should have gotten more for Vanek, though I'm sure time was a factor on this one, and it wasn't doing Snow any favors.

So here is the question: When Snow gets fired for totally mismanaging this season for the Isles, does Nabakov automatically become GM or do they get the opportunity to hire Dipietro instead?

man if that is all it took to get Vanek I 'm not sure why Glen didn't go after him...

Could have done a 3rd and Lindberg or somethng...

I'm really surprised they didn't With what seemingly was a buyers market late in the day, why not try and replace at least SOME of what you lost.

Callahan had basically little value today based on Moulson/Vanek returns.

It's not coming and won't be coming with Sather and AV at the helm. Funny how some still want more one dimensional skill.

I think he is very much a border-line prospect.

I would -- never -- deal Fast for Collberg. Collberg got a Hall of Fame WJC career, but he really is not that good of a player. He is clutch and a winner.

This, to me this makes the Marty trade an easier pill to swallow...

Seen Collberg play live 60+ times in the SEL, he's struggling a lot playing agains seniors. Not even close to as impactfull he's been in the WJCs. He has scored 18 points in 121 SHL games... There's even been talk about trading him from his SHL team Frölunda, that shoud say a lot about how much Garth Snow screwed this one up..

Look at the Rangers cap situation. The Rangers have added $14.025M in commitments for next season with the acquisitions of Klein and MSL plus re-signing Girardi. $53,187,500 for 12 players. 6 forward. 4 D. 2 G. The cap won't be set at $70M-71M. Nick Kypreos and Doug MacLean were discussing that yesterday on Hockeycentral at noon. NHL teams believe the cap will be set at $68M-$69M because of the Canadian dollar. $1M-$1.5M-$2M less. The Rangers will need every penny looking at their cap situation.

Arbitration for Brassard,Zuccarello and Kreider. Moore is a group II. Stralman and Boyle are group IIIs.

Which makes the situation even more confusing. Wait it out until the last possible minute and then pull the plug over $200k per year and trade-clause issues? Has to make you wonder if this was all a ploy to get Yzerman to think the Rangers would back out of a MSL deal by signing Callahan.

So I take it this means the Rangers are done with moves? Nothing else to report?

The Rangers could have traded Callahan for a 2nd and/or a prospect(not a great prospect). That wasn't helping the Rangers in the next 3-4 years.

If the #habs fail to make the playoffs, there are no picks involved in the Vanek trade. Would just be Vanek for Collberg.
