Poti's run with Rangers over

Quote:
"He made it clear to us that he wanted to move on," Rangers assistant general manager Don Maloney said yesterday. "We wanted to explore whether we were a consideration but, for all considered, he needs to move on to somewhere else. So the answer is, no, he's not on our radar screen"
Maloney seems content with the Rangers defense

Quote:
"It'd be fair to say we'd be satisfied with where we are," Maloney said. "We'll continue to look to upgrade all positions. But, if you look around, there aren't that many premium defensemen on the market right now, so either we can look to upgrade through trades or young players"
http://www.nyjournalnews.com/apps/pb...607080342/1108

Maloney was asked about Brian Leetch(he wouldn't comment specifically about Brian)but there is little interest from both sides on a reunion

So they target Chara...

end up with Ward and are happy... Funny thing is, the Rangers seemingly wanted to keep Poti; I wonder if that would've been instead of Rozsival? With Malik, Kaspar, Tyutin, Ward and Rachunek, is there really room for Rozsival and Poti (barring a trade and excluding Ozolinsh, of course).

Where do you get the impression the Rangers wanted to bring Poti back?Just because Maloney spoke to Poti's agent?Maloney has probably talked with all of the NHLPA certified agents about many players

Target Chara to a certain $$$.Maloney indicated in his MSG interview with John Giannone,the Rangers weren't going to break the bank and start offering blockbuster contracts but some skeptics(I think you were one of them)ripped his comments

This statement...

"We wanted to explore whether we were a consideration" makes me believe there was interest. Why ask if the Rangers were a consideration?

I am a skeptic, and breaking the bank is a relevant term. Allegedly they were offering more than $7MM per season - could've been $7.4MM for all we know - and $7.5MM got it done. Yeah, perhaps they didn't trump the winning number (perhaps Chara made it clear he wouldn't play in NY so they didn't even try), but what number's breaking the bank (can this be considered offering a blockbuster contract?)? Some would consider paying $7MM for Chara a lot. Perhaps the number was $7.4MM, and some would consider that a lot. So they were willing to spend within $500K of what got dne, which is still significant. Someone needs to clarify to me what break the bank means. Just because a deal doesn't get done doesn't mean the willingness to spend a nice sum of money, i.e., break the bank.

Same with Elias - but there are less details about that, but seemingly this team was willing to spend $7MM on two free agent - is that breaking the bank? Or does the term only apply if it actually gets consummated? I personally like understanding thought processes.

What does Tom Poti have to do with defense?

Glad to see him go. Infuriating in his incompetence at times. Even on the PP he was useless for the majority of his stay.

I think you guys are too quick to be happy that Poti's gone. I think he really started to come into his own last year. Maybe not offensively but his overall game improved alot. He was a solid defenseman last year and even played a little tougher getting in opponents faces sometimes to stick up for his teammates. I really like the way he played. I think he never got going offensively last year but you can see its there with his rushes up the ice, good slap shot and passing ability. Poti didnt shoot enough it seemed at times and passed the puck off at times where he had the shot. But thing I like best about his improved play was that he didnt get caught up ice much if at all. He picked his spots well when he wanted to join the rush, always being able to recover and get back for a counter attack. Sure he wasnt producing for the money he was getting but he certainely did a good job. If Poti came back I wouldnt be upset. Rather see Rozsival traded and Staal get the chance to take the spot. If he doesnt do good in camp give the spot to Pock.

Thank you. Potty is gone. Let's see who's the first one to cream him or skate around him when NY plays the Islanders.

How do you know what the Rangers offered for Chara and Elias. Please state your source..

Chara was worth the money the Rangers were offering

Most of the other guys are NOT worth the contracts they signed. (see the mckee and kubina signings)

Ward is worth the contract he signed and fills a need. (amazing right)

If Maloney was pissed about how things shook out do you expect him to tell the press?

For years we had to read posters say how Poti was Sathers boy. Wouldn't that be enough for the Rangers to see his interest. Wouldn't it make sense for the Rangers to check all there free agents to see what they would return for.
