Sunshine's Top 5 "Why Are You Here???" list

5. Michal Rozsival...I may eat my words on this one-but I strongly doubt it. I expect for him to be a defensive liability...the type of player to let the puck get under his stick to lead to a 3rd period breakaway game winning goal. I hope I'm wrong and he thrives with the Czechs.

4. Jason Strudwick...In my opinion, there simply is no place for him anywhere near our organization. We're too deep with NHL ready 3rd-4th line D-men (i.e. Lampman, Pock) They've paid their dues in the minors, give them the spot.

3. Dale Purinton...<See Strudwick> - a wannabe goon who honestly can't bleep with the best of them. He's failed as an NHL'er, clearly an ECHL/AHL player who cannot possibly be given a spot on this team-especially with Rullier/Grenier ready to take the role.

2. Jason Ward...again, there just isn't a spot for him. I swear if Prucha/Giroux/Moore are sent to Hartford so that this guy has a spot on the pro roster, I'm going to lose it.

1. Anders Eriksson...this camp invite screams mid-90s Ranger recycled trash, never was an NHL'er-certainly won't be now. And much like the players listed above, if he takes Pock's spot....

Strudwick sucks
couldn't crack the islanders line up and is a marginal player and a waste as a enforcer.

Ward, dont understand this signing, Ok he's young-ish but like people have said i'd prefer Giroux, Prucha, Murray ETC over him. He hasnt done anything.

Strudwick, if there keeping Purinton around he is not needed, plus i'd much rather see Rullier or Grenier have a shot if Purinton gets injured or needs some help

I have no problem with Strudwick. Vet presence to protect the kids and won't eat up a ton of minutes. He'll probably suit up at LW anyway.

I thought the Malik signing was unnecessary, especially for that money.

Looking at these things...

mutually exclusively, I don't think Rozsival's that bad. I think he'd be good on a third pair, and can play on the second power play. He's inconsistently tough, but if he's on the third pair, I don't think too many of us will be upset with his defensive/offensive skills combo. He may, or will likely be, hurt throughout the season. So one may not be able to count on him.

Strudwick, from what I remember, is a bit tougher (will clear the crease, will hit guys, and is a decent fighter) than the other Rangers defensemen. As a #7 defenseman, he wouldn't look too bad, or even a fourth line winger (I'm not the biggest fan of converting these guys just to get them ice time, as I'd like to see four lines rolled).

Purinton - he and Strudwick on a team doesn't make a lot of sense. But, I did say I'd look at this mutually exclusively. It all depends on which Dale comes to work. There is steady Dale and crazy Dale. Steady Dale is a capable defenseman, but can he keep crazy Dale away? While Renney tries to figure out who the best defensemen are, keeping Dale around isn't the craziest thing in the world (although if Rullier has a one-way, Dale may need to wow the staff to stay).

Jason Ward - he's a wildcard. Sather took a low-risk, low-cost gamble on a former first rounder. Has decent size and grit. Worth a shot to look at, as long as the look isn't overstayed.

Anders Eriksson - I don't understand why one would waste a minute with this guy when there already appears to be some sort of glut on the defense as it is. He shouldn't even spend a minute out there in a preseason game as it only takes time away from someone else.

Agreed on Malik - we do not have Jovanovski and the Vancouver system and players to help make Malik that +37 player.

Rozsival and Strudwick are decent additions IMO.
Purinton have only been an NHL player these last couple of years because he was a Ranger plain and simple.
Ward is just a 4th liner and we can have younger player filling the same need.
Same goes for Eriksson (although he is a 7 defenceman of course).

I agree, you all want to feel suicidal for a moment.
Think about this.
What if we had a competent GM for the last couple of years rebuilding our team, where would we be now?

I don't know a lot about Strudwick except he's been banging around for a while and has never really stuck anywhere. I agree with your list except for one thing--there is a reason why Purinton makes the team and it's not because he's an NHL calibre player--it's because there's nobody else except maybe Rullier (we'll see if he makes it) that can defend his teammates the way Dale does---and they will need defending.

Eriksson is the worst to me and then Ward. On the Blueshirt Bulletin page they're are slamming his (Ward) pre-season so far saying he's shown the least of anyone at camp.

Something about this I find incredibly funny, almost like Purinton is Gollum orm something.

Steady Dale and Crazy Dale, lol.

Purinton isn't that terrible.

1. Strudwick - never wanted him anyway, some people were singing his praises when we signed him.
2. Lundmark - sad, but he's still like a piece of plywood even witht the new rules.
3. Poti - god dammit, trade him and one of the young goalies for Wade Redden.
4. Ward - can't skate or stickhandle in the NHL.
5. Weller - he's still around?

Sounds like you guys are just at loss of ideas, Rucinsky has produced in a tremendous way for us, and Malik is certainly not an unpleasant addition. Tjutin is still green and Kaspar was the only veteran stay-at-home... should we have signed Leetch, Aucoin or Niedermayer?

Please refer to the NYI-NYR Game Day Thread for early on-ice impressions on Malik

Early being the key term. Pre-emptive analyses on players based on one game should hold no water with rational people.

I didn't really base my belief that Weekes is inconsistent in goal by tonight's performance. Or that Tom Poti has no clue what to do defensively.
