Jan Marek Negotiating with NYR

According to Rodents web site...

Robert Spalenka of the "Sports Invest Hockey" agency represents Ranger prospect Jan Marek and today was given the okay by the Sparta sniper to negotiate with New York.

Wonder what's gonna happen with this.

Probably, but while we're in "kitchen sink" mode, we might as well look and see.

it's good to see Marek might sign...can't hurt to give a skilled forward a shot

Why would it be a bad thing to give the guy a look. If he comes over here and scores 30 goals or something you'll swallow your words. It's not likely sure, but what do we have to lose... our stanley cup run?

Careful, careful!

What I heard and all I wrote was that Jan authorized his agent to pursue talks with NYR. I have ZERO idea how receptive the Rangers are to negotiating or whether Marek would accept a two-way deal.

As I reported weeks ago, Margaret Hurley relayed a question about Prucha and Marek to Tom Renney at one of those subscriber appreciation events and Hurley quoted Renney as saying that Prucha is likely to come over before Marek would.

The interpretation of that is ambiguous. Without being there myself, one cannot say whether Renney was being polite in hinting that Marek is off the radar after his production dwindled last season, or whether it was Marek's choice not to go to Hartford for less than he could make in Prague.

The previous negotiation failed because Marek stood to make much more with Sparta than he did in Hartford.

Keep in mind people that you cannot simply look at the back of Marek's trading card and label him washed. It's more than just a case of smaller numbers.

His ice time plummeted last season because Sparta hired Nedved and a bunch of other NHL veterans and played them way more than Marek who used to be on the top line.

However, with Prucha signed and Glen Sather quickly running out of options to fill out the squad, it's possible Marek might be attractive to bring to training camp for a look-see.

Gotta run. Can't stay for questions. Sorry.

Give him a look-see on a one year deal, what could it hurt?

Ahhhh...so what you're saying is that he probably has already signed a deal and we've agreed to trade him to Boston in exchange for Joe T and a 1st rounder?

So what you're saying is that instead of trading for Samsonov as part of this package, Slats will "accept" Thornton, the pick and gamble he can sign Sergei as a UFA next summer.

Is this a good readback?

Well it's possible they throw in Samsonov as well, but I was thinking we might be able to flip the first pick over to Calgary and get Iginla and Phaneuf...that's what my sources are telling me anywya.

This can just be taken as a rumor with no substance until you provide us with some sort of link or proof to this all.

1) Center

2) He centered Balej and Naslund who I got as a UFA. He put up something like 50 points his rookie year since he progressed a lot in Hartford and Balej had a great year the year before.

3) I'm just going to manage the Rangers when I take over by how well they do in my video games.
