Chicago G.M. Follwing Rangers

Dellapina reports today that Tallon has been following the Rangers .Smolinski and Cullimore may be available. What is the asking price and what should we offer, if anything?

I wouldn't want Smolinski. I don't know enough to comment on Cullimore.

I've been saying SMOLINSKI for over a month...Not becasue I think he's great but becasue I think he's the level of player we will go after and get, and beacuase he just might be a good fit at a reasonable cost...A pick? A 4th liner? A not so great prospect? or two of the above...?

The only players on that team I'd want anything to do with are Ruutu, Havlat, Seabrook, Keith, and Barker.

Cullimore is another slow big somewhat physical dman but not very physical for his size at 6'5 220. Him and Malik on the same blueline oh no

Smolinski and Cullimore would be a total waste.

Smolinski doesn't address any of the real problems the Rangers have up front, and Cullimore, as mentioned, is basically another Malik.

Useless.

My opinion, unless you can move the 4th liners for a decent prospect/pick don't trade anyone.

I don't know about that Anthony, you don't think the team needs some help on defense?

Dale Tallon and Rick Dudley are not just watching the Rangers.On Saturday,they were at the Rangers-Flyers.Later that night,they drove to DC to watch the Caps-Canes.On Sunday,they were in Atlanta for the Thrashers-Flyers.Last night in Boston

Quote:
The Blackhawks had several team officials on hand last night, including GM Dale Tallen. One Chicago forward who would fit the bill for the “energy player” Chiarelli has said he’d like to add would be ex-Bruin Martin Lapointe. On the books for $2.4 million this season and next, Lapointe, with 10-5-15 totals in 50 games, would be an affordable option to provide a spark
Quote:
Sources also said the Bruins are prepared to dump second-year forward Brad Boyes, who was scoreless for a 14th consecutive game, for nothing more than a draft pick
Brad Boyes?

http://bruins.bostonherald.com/bruin...ticleid=179950

Cullimore is coming off a shoulder injury which forced him to miss 2-3 weeks.He isn't any upgrade then what the Rangers currently have and has a contract for next season-$1.9 million.The Hawks have been trying to trade him as soon as they realized their mistake in signing him.Smoke isn't much of an upgrade either.I saw the Hawks against the Flames on Sunday and Smoke looked like ****

Smolinski is like a slower, possibly a bit feistier version of Cullen. At least in that they'd fill the same role.

Boyes now...that's intriguing. He's listed as a center, is that where he's been playing? My feeling has been that he's not as much of a playmaker as you'd want with someone like Shanahan, but a young center who scored almost 70 points as a rookie? Yeah he's struggled this year some, but it's intriguing.

They were saying in last nights broadcast that a big reason Boyes has struggled this year is that he hasn't played with Bergeron as much as he did last year. I don't know how much truth is in that, but hey...if playing with Shanahan could be kind of like playing with Bergeron, it might work out...

More of a shot in the dark than trading for an established 2nd line center, but it does result in the Rangers gaining a young player with upside for a low cost, assuming the rumor is true.

I agree, and they're a team that's rebuilding. I'm sure the asking price for any of the above would involve one or more, of our best too.

I've read that he's playing RW, and has been displaced by Savard

Agree with you about Boyes..Worth a shot..He's been in kinda the same situation as Prucha this year regarding, play, confidence, ice time, lineamtes etc...Things have just not been working for him but he was awesome last year, so it's there...

Disagree about Smolinski...I think Shanny needs a C with him that knows the game, can set up the play in the ofdfensive zone, and dish the puck...SMolinski is not my first choice, but he could fit the bill and might be somebody we "settle" for..

good point he's getting screwed around with just like prucha has this year. he's a natural play making center that's been put on right wing and he's totally lost there. i'd go after boyes he'd be number one on my list of guys to get if he truely is available.

I heard some say they think him being moved to wing is one reason he's struggled

I just don't think Smolinski has the skills that you mention...he's not a high scoring player, he's pretty much just another Cullen.

Boyes for a 3rd? HELL YEA. Man, its so weird hearing people say 26 points so far is a subpar season. He'd be fifth on the team for points and has 19 more than Betts. I'd give him a shot before trying Foppa.

Why? He's fairly young at 29 turning 30 and he is surely is earning his contract. He's on par with Jagr as far as production and even has one more point. Also, we're looking at worse centers who we'd certainly have to overpay for IE. Smolinski/Forsberg so why not get someone useful?

I could see a big trade with BOS for Savard/Stuart involving our first round pick and some, but they would definately have to take a contract back, and I would want them to take that contract off the roster.

Something doesn't seem right about the Boyes rumor. I highly doubt that the Bruins will trade a young forward who had a 70 pt rookie season for a middle round draft pick. If he indeed is being shopped, the price will be higher than that. I could be wrong though, the NHL is a strange place now-a-days.

...

I don't think that we need Cullimore or Smolinski at all.

If we are going to go after someone, I think that Aucoin would be a good choice. He is a physical dman,very solid defensively, who can also contribute on offense. I would however not move any of our youth. I would be more than happy to move a guy like Rachunek or Malik since they suck.

If that doesn't work, I would just trade Rachunek to Chicago for a pick (a 3rd would be nice) and let Girardi and Pock play more (we still have Kasper in minors for depth).
