Awesome news going into the season, lets see what he can do to help. Not sure what team he was a fan of growing up but being able to choose the team you want to go to and not your hometown one is weird, but who knows, maybe he was a Boston Rangers fan
Zuccarello is worth than one season of Shattenkirk. The Rangers have no desire to pay Shattenkirk long-term.
I love Shatty, but unless we're willing to pay him it makes no sense to acquire him.
Now, what we should all be hoping Gorton can do is find the next Stralman. A guy who can be had for peanuts who is a step away from being a solid top 4 guy.
Can Clendenning or Paliotta be that guy? Who knows.
However, I really think the staff is counting on Girardi to at least bounce back to respectability. I think that and Staal gettting back to form is what they're counting on. Perhaps a month or two into the season if that doesn't happen we will see a move for the D.
Didn't expect this to happen before the last few days frenzy. Fantastic, love our forwards...now the defense needs fixing. Seriously barring mass injuries if Glass puts on a Rangers sweater this season I'll cry.
