Been refreshing the AHL transactions page all morning. Thinking they might not make an official move until they have clear cut timetables on Klein and McD?

Kristo is 24 and will be a UFA in the summer.

Allen is already 24.

Losing Miller, Fast, and Linberg for two guys that could help us win a Cup...

Buchnevich, Duclair, Hayes are far ahead of any of them. And there is limited space on an NHL roster. Don't see the issue in sacrificing a couple of decent, not great, prospects for two pieces that could end up being integral parts to a Stanley Cup run.

Haggerty > Kristo
Hayes > Lindberg
Duclair > Fast
Buchnevich > all of them
Skjei > Allen

Miller

I don't see this supposed annihilation of the prospect pool.

If Sekera and Vermette could be had for less, then more power to us.

We also have to subtract Glass's cap hit, and have to pay someone to do it.

Keep draft picks and use them to replenish the depth in the system.

Are Lindberg, Fast, Kristo, and Allen turning this club into a contender? They can't crack the lineup or in Fast's case hold a spot down over the likes of Glass, Malone, or Mueller...

You hold onto the players that can make your team better.

The rest you use as trade chips to add parts that can help your team.

Do you think we would sign Jamie McBain out of desperation? Either as a 7th dman or for Hartford? Didn't he just sign a PTO with an AHL team?

Yeah, Manchester.

Wonder what Derek Morris is up to right now...

Hartford just added two D on PTOs. Call-ups incoming soon I'd guess.

Bretton Stamler and Dallas Jackson

EDIT - Or not...

For cap purposes - and fact that Hartford plays today at 3 - Rangers will make their call-ups after 5 p.m. today.

Gotta be Allen and either McI or Bodie

Thinking Bodie and Mcilrath - aren't they a pairing with the 'Pack? Would make sense to keep them together.

I think the first pairing is Allen-McIlrath

When they made the Gaborik and Clowe trades, all of them were in the lineup that night. That game was ****ing glorious when they all just took a big, steaming dump all over Pittsburgh. Definitely one of my favorite games in recent years.

The poor kid was absolutely emasculated today. I feel bad for him because he has so much talent, but can't put it all together.

Raphael Diaz should be a target.

Derek Morris should be another. He is UFA

Don't want MDZ at 90% retained for nothing.
AV had him in the dog house until he was shipped to Nashville. Has had a rough go in Philly so far too, they just don't have any Defensemen.

Would cost an arm and a leg. He's one of the most underrated players in the league and a top-15 defenseman.

Yeah i follow. I'm saying if Sekera costs too much, we should look into Giordano...

If he is indeed underrated, he won't cost as much as a coveted asset

Sekera would make sense both in terms of this year... and moving forward.
I agree. Especially if they think McIlrath and Skjei project as defensive dmen moving forward. Girardi is a defensive guy. Klein is too.

or

2) Staal and getting Sekera plus another piece back from them.

I would think that scenario #1 makes A LOT more sense given the current state of our defensive corps. But had everyone been healthy, I'd have preferred scenario 2. And I love Staal as a player.
What would the other piece be though? Do you think we get another roster player to fill out the bottom 6, or do we go for a prospect? Someone mentioned Brett Pesce in another thread, and he sounds like he could be a solid target.
