Personally, I would like to see both let go and then welcome Sergei Samsonov to New York with open arms. Possibly sign one if no other center option opens up.

I would only keep Straka. I think Nylander is too one dimensional always looking for the pass and never for a shot. Straka has more versitility where he can play both positions of LW and C plus the point on the PP. Nylander isn't a true #1 center and I think that is something we should be shoping for this summer.

I'd resign straka. But I wouldn't be upset if we resigned both.

wasn't Nylanders deal for

3 years?

If so this is year No. 2 and he's signed for another year.

I could be and probably am wrong

I thought it was a 2 year deal with a team option for a 3rd.

Your right. He does have one more year after this.

I think the team option is for a 4th year. Not 100% sure though but I know he's guaranteed for 3 years.

it's three years, with a 4th year team option for 3 million (before rollback), and a 4th year player option for 2 million

Bingo! Nylander is indeed signed for next season and the season after should he decide to continue playing in the NHL.

As for Straka, ask me again at the end of the seaon, right now it's too early to be thinking about next year.

My bad on Nylander. I thought he was a UFA after this year!

I'd like to see more out of Straka but if Jagr likes playing with him then he's basicly a shoein.

Nylander has been great

Too early to tell on Straka..

it really depends on where prospects are towards the end of the season. If things are going as they are currently going, and Immonen and Dawes play their way to a chance with the big club, something's going to have to give to make room next season. But as I said, there's still plenty of time to figure that one out.

Nylander has 8 goals. He is shooting some--anyway more than Straka is. I think it's too early to decide on Straka or not. I think you go into the off season and see if you can get a better player. If not then he is an option again.

Well, it's not just them. There are going to be some great UFAs this year. Samsonov should be a prime target for us.

I don't see a reason to get enamoured with any vets, be it Rucchin, Straka, Nylander or whoever you want to bring up. People keep forgetting that these players were brought in as placekeepers until younger legs are ready to play. That's why they were either signed to one year deals or, in the case of Rucchin, happen to be in the last year of their deal. Rucchin was to serve as the best defensive center on the big team, with faceoff capabilities. Well, both Betts (especially in terms of faceoffs) and Moore are showing they can handle those roles. Rucchin is not a second line playmaking center, so if players like Immonen and Dawes show they are ready next year, I don't see a point in keeping older placeholders around if their purpose on this team has been filled.

One thing I dont get, why sign Nylander and Malik to 3 year deals and only one year deals to Straka and Rucinsky. At least we should have offered all of them 2 year deals so we dont take the chance of losing them for nothing when they are ufa. Straka is worth more than one year, same with Rucinsky. Nylander should have gotten only 2 years same with Malik. I think 3 years is too long for a vet over 30.

If all goes well, JOrt...

I'm sure Sather will offer them up new contracts, and they'd love to come back. If all doesn't go well, then perhaps Sather wouldn't want them back at all. It's about giving Sather as much flexibility come trade deadline/end of season as possible.

With Prucha emerging I think I either resign Straka or Rucinsky, maybe even both - they could be 1-2-3 on the left side. It all comes down to what it would cost and how the guys on the depth charts looks, especially Dawes and Jessiman.

I'd like to see them replace straka or rucinsky (preferably straka) with a RW, because of the imbalance of wingers in the system, and the lack of right-wingers on the current roster

Remember, we signed Nylander BEFORE the lockout to a very reasonable contract.

We really didn't have a center at the time.

i really don't know how you can answer this question without knowing what other options will be available both in house prospects being ready or players from other teams that are available over the summer...

what if next year nigel dawes is ready?? what if we can sign samsanov?? what if we could pull off a trade for brad richards???

are you gonna block one of those potential deals because straka played well for 26 games??
