Key UFA - What u guys think of the options?

These are the key players the Rangers should target:

Up front:
LW Kariya - Speedy, skilled and fun to watch. But he is small, and the Rangers are still small up front.
LW Hartnell - would add size, grit, toughness and only 25.
LW Nagy - he is underrated but again he is small.
C Gomez - even though he was a Devil, he is a talented playmaker.
C Drury - a great forward who is awesome in the clutch. good leadership.
RW Fedotenko - hed add depth and help our pk, Fedotenko is only 28.
C Hazdus - not a 2ed line but a good 3rd line, kills penalties and solid at the faceoff and has size although not physical
C Comrie - sather drafted him so i can see Sather signing him.
C Lang - has history with the Pens, and Nylander. I can see Sather going after him.

For D:
Sarich - Played with Mara on the Bolts. Solid tough defensive dman that we can use. Sticks up for teammates.
Vaananen - A young physical dman, only 26. Drafted by the Yotes, then dealt to the Avs.
Vishnevski - A younger Kasper he has been compaired to, still only 26. Hed add some toughness and grit to our d.
Hannan - a complete dman, good team leader, very underrated. top 4 would add some grit too our defense that we can use.
Sutton - 31 years old 6'6 dman, he can hit and play tough. Sticks up for teammates.
Stuart - A solid skating dman, this is the player we should attempt to sign on July 1 along with Hannan. Stuart would help our PP.
Sydor - 35 years old, good leadership and has won. Would help our d but only 2 year Id give at most.
D.Markov - this guy gets hurt way too much but he does cause he plays so hard and is a true warrior. a solid physical dman.
Fahey - a solid number 6 dman, maybe can replace Strudwick in the 6-7th man. Still young though only 25.
Salvador - a physical stay at home dman, plays tough and sticks up for teammates.

Handzus is not a UFA. Lang does not know Nylander. He knows Straka and Jagr.

That's why he was just re-signed by chicago.

Nylander and Lang isn't even close to being Lang and Jagr or Lang and Straka. Their frendhsips,or bond are in a totally different level.

how about signing nylander at $4mil, sign comrie at $3mil and hes only 26 so its just like getting a gomez just with slightly less points but he would be perfect for 2nd line duty to play along side prucha and shanny if he returns. then sign either hannan or sarich to play defense while we get rid of malik and let rachunek go and lets see if any other youngsters can step in...

Straka Nylander Jagr
Prucha Comrie Shanny/FA
Avery Cullen Callahan
Hossa Betts Youngster

Rosie Sarich/Hannan
Tyutin Girardi
Staal Mara

how about signing Fedotenko to replace Orts. Hed add more scoring to the bottom lines.

Hossa Betts Fedotenko not a bad 4th line.

re-sign nylander, shanny, avery, henrik, etc


sign forsberg

bring up staal

let rachunek, weekes, and orts go

let big valli backup henrik

also, i like the idea of Jessiman replacing Orr on the 4th line. at the very least he brings a bit more speed and offensive ability.

bask in your presidents trophy contending team.

i really like that as our fourth line but will we have enough cap room to sign everyone? we definatly need cap room for next years free agent crop, theres gonna be a good bunch of players available. but if we can get fedenko for cheap less than $2mil a year. then im down.

Straka Nylander Jagr
Prucha Comrie(fa) Shanny/FA

Re-sign Nylander. He's a bargain even with a raise. Playing with Jagr and Straka, he'll continue to put up similar numbers as Datsyuk at a much lower cost. Re-sign Shanahan. I think it's obvious he's still got it. He's the vocal leader this team needs and is a playoff player. Play him at fewer minutes and don't burn him out this time. Sign Chris Drury. Bring up Dubinsky and slide Cullen to the wing. This keeps kids: Callahan, Dubinsky, Prucha, Hossa in the lineup while having a deep "roll 4 lines" setup. All 4 lines can score.

Straka Nylander Jagr
Callahan Drury Shanahan
Avery Dubinsky Cullen
Prucha Betts Hossa

Fill-in's: Ortmeyer, Orr, Hollweg, Dawes, Bourret, Immonen


Line 1: No explanation needed.
Line 2: Looks great on paper. Could be very fun to watch.
Line 3: 2 Speedsters (Avery and Cullen) with Dubinsky(not too shabby in the speed department either) in the middle.
Line 4: Defensively responsible, and much more offensive upside than any of our 4th lines in the past 2 seasons.

Tyutin Girardi
Rozsival Staal (assuming he impresses in camp)
Malik Mara

Fill-in's: Pock, Rachunek if re-signed, Liffiton

Lundqvist
Valliquette

Fill-in's: Montoya

Defense seems pretty set for now and I'm content with it. Don't re-sign Weekes. Valley is a capable backup with Lundqvist playing the majority of games. Worst case scenario, if Lundqvist gets hurt for any extended period of time, Montoya can be given a good look. Don't trade Montoya yet unless we're getting franchise material.

This is the misconception about Nylander and his contract...the per year amount is not the issue, as much as the length. The Rangers only want Nylander around while Jagr is still here, so that's why there were indications that Sather and Nylander's agent had agreed to a two-year deal. Once Jagr is gone, the Rangers head full steam into the direction they started in 2004.

The Rangers agreed to a three year deal with Paul Theofanous

Quote:
According to a well-placed source, Nylander, who as late as the May 8 break-up day that followed the Blueshirts' elimination by the Sabres stated his desire to remain in New York, decided to part ways with Theofanous the final week of the season after learning that his agent had reached an independent agreement with Glen Sather for a three-year contract worth $3.75M per.

Hartnell = Adam Hall 2007-2008 in regards to hype about a gritty forward that can pot 20 goals. We don't need another one of those, and with Hartnell we'd significantly overpay.

Hartnell is a much better player than Adam frikkin Hall, that is not debateable.

How much he should be paid is.

one year deals for Forsberg and Slava OK

if Smyth is a reality at the right $$/years OK

A trade for Brad Richards OK

other than that we'll probably have to ever pay, and I dont think the Rangers will overpay.

Sather will improve the team without breaking the Caps back.

Whatever we do, I'd like to see Slats and Co. keep about 4-5 million away from the cap heading down the stretch. That way, if need be, we can add someone via trade at the deadline if we are in contention with a realistic shot at things.

oh god no, we get softer, no thanks, we need to get tough like the ducks. they got players that are tough, the rangers should build like them. they will be good for years. Hartnell and Drury are my top options up front. On D Sarich, Vishnevski or Hannan would do.
