I honestly think we just sign a 3rd line center and roll with Brassard as the 2nd line center.

Hoping Brad has an excellent next season, to increase league wide interest in Rick Nash.

I have a question: Have the Rangers ever brought in a guy over 30 years old, who had success on other teams, come to us and live up to the expectations? Mark Messier is the only guy right now I can think of who fit that bill.

That quote, to me, encapsulates a lot of why big money free agents fail here.

Jagr, Straka, Prospal, Shanahan, etc.

These players were usually on 1-year or short term deals with a reasonable cap hit. It's the long-term, highly paid contracts that tend to bite us in the ass.

I'll miss Richie. Yes his play wasn't up to his previous play. But still he provided leadership and wasn't all that bad. Too bad the NHL doesn't allow for resigning him at a more cap friendly number.

disagree.

good defensively. skates well, would be our best F/O man and that's with Boyle still here.

Can play a speed game as his skating while not a strong point, is not a weakness either.

Better option than giving up assets for Thornton in addition to parting with similar coin.

do the Rangers even have a first round pick to trade, or are you saying a first round pick in 2016 and 2017, so the Rangers can go a few straight years without a first round pick? Also, if Staal is playing well and the Rangers are looking like a contending team, I don't think he's a guy who gets traded at the deadline.

Gomez was good defensively. Gomez could skate well. Gomez played a speed game.

This is Gomez part II.

Maybe we can trade him for another McD a couple of years after he inevitably implodes.

You fix one whole in that trade and create another.

I'd trade Miller + picks at the deadline if we could go for another run. Staal and picks at the deadline? Can't see it.

Staal is the only legitimate trade piece the Rangers have. I hate the idea of using him to go after flawed candidates like Thornton, O'Reilly, Spezza, whatever imperfect center candidate we can think of. I am really fearful that the defensive depth that helped this team along collapses like a house of cards without Staal - who has always been painfully underrated by Ranger fans.

I don't consider O'Reilly flawed.

The other guys? Yeah. Especially Thornton.

I think Miller is a good trade piece, though. Miller and picks gets it done for Thornton at the deadline if that's a direction Slats wanted to go in. And you do it without opening up a massive hole on the back-end.

gomez was good defensively?

don't ever remember that.

Gomez produced to his career averages while here in NY. Paying a 60 point player to come in and produce 80 points is stupid on the teams part.

That's what they did with Gomez.

7 per back then is a whole hell of a lot different than 7 million today

I'm looking at Stastny to be an improved version of Brad Richards. 55-65 points, better defensively, better on draws and don't be slow as ****.

Same cap hit, but a better player? and no assets wasted to acquire him? Sign me up

I agree, but Miller + picks nets nothing of value I would think.

I still think the Rangers best course of action is trying to re-sign all the free agents, and looking to make a cheap/shrewd acquisition at center. Not a reach for the stars move, but a guy that can slot into the top 9.
