Marcel Hossa/ Mike Comrie

Forgive me if I am wrong, but I haven't seen a topic regarding Hossa. The guy is a RFA this year. Do you think he will be signed and at what? I personally hope they give him a 2 year deal, though a 1 year with team option would be even better

lost in the center talk is Mike Comrie. I realize he is in the 2nd tier of FA center this year, but let's get realistic. 30 teams in the NHL think they are going to be getting one of Gomez, Briere and Drury. What do you guys think of a Comrie signing?

Give him a 1 year deal. If he does good this year with a contract on the line, then you lock him up for another 2 or so after it. THere's no need to give him more than 1 year right now because we all know that he can go through spurts. I felt that he was a great 3rd liner for a while because of his cycling and defensive game, but he really shined on Jagr's line. We'll see if that carries over.

I like Hossa and for his price, Id give him a two year deal.

Mike Comrie is the player I was thinking about if they couldnt get one of the big three.

He is still youngish. Not old and injury prone like forsberg.

not only that, Sather knows Comrie and his family well. When Comrie was on the Yotes, Sather wanted him before they got Sykora. Sather likes players that he knows, my bet is Comrie will be a Ranger.

Pass on Comrie. I know the whole Sather knows Comrie's family/favorite color/soda/beer etc. might come into play but do we really need another centerman who gets knocked off the puck easily?

He's not lost in any talk. I've mention Comrie like a million and zillion times for christ sakes.

I guess I haven't seen them. You see multiple threads on the big 3 but can you really tell me there have been any serious discussions here about Comrie?

Straka Nylander Jagr
Shanahan Comrie Avery
Cullen Dubinsky Prucha
(open) Betts (open)

Of course Shanny is a ?, and some things are arbitrary (prucha 2nd line, Shanahan 1st line, etc.), but that would really give us 3 scoring lines.

Not a big Comrie fan...I'd rather see the Rangers pursue Lang.

Yuck. That 2nd line is awful.

Comrie should not be a member of our team.

I will throw up if he is.

Honestly, as a 1 year stopgap until Marleau and/or Thornton go UFA, I wouldn't mind that either.

Though they're different kind of players, wouldn't Comrie just be more of Rucchin or Cullen.....guys who are 2A centers and not real productive offensive 2nd line centers. Rather see Dubinsky get a shot if we don't sign a legit 2nd line center.

Well had Comrie played a full season, he was on pace for 25 goals, but who knows what effect the long wait-out in Phoenix had on him. Cullen could be moved to wing. I'm all for playing the youth too, but can you really tell me you would feel comfortable playing Dubinsky right away on the 2nd line? Maybe if he blows everyone away, but otherwise I feel he would be better off starting on the 3rd line.

I realize I left off Callahan on my lines, so yea.......I just realized our roster is very crowded. I think the ideal situation is to sign a top 2 line center and let Shanny walk. With Callahan, Dawes, Dubinsky, Immonen, etc waiting for a job, we really don't have much to add to our 4 lines. I think our major target should be a defenseman.

There is no way that the Sharks will allow either to go UFA.

Yep. Seeing how there's a very good chance that we don't get one of Drury/Gomez/Briere, Lang is a smart option. He won't want a ridiculous amount of money (probably $2.5 mil for 1 year) and can play the 2nd line center spot well.

Comrie really isn't anything special. Something tells me he just wouldn't fit in with the Rangers.

Comrie is a perfect fit. He can dish to Shanny all day long or pop in 25-35 in the east.Hossa and see ya in the same sentence would make me happy

Why is everyone clamoring to get rid of Hossa when he's finally showing signs of life? Look at Hartnell, Zubrus, Pyatt... hell, not as dramatic, but look at how Bertuzzi was at first... four power forwards we talked about signing that were hyped and had slow starts. Why throw away that potential? If we could sign him at .85 for two years and he were to put up 30G/30A with Jagr, that'd be awesome.

This is exactly how I feel about Hossa, and its why last summer I argued it was important that we deal with him with patience.

As for Comrie? I like his game, but I feel if he came to the Rangers he'd be just another underachiever. Would he be awful? No, but guys like him tend to just blend in when they end up on Broadway, and usually explode once they leave.

Kinda like Cullen? I don't know, I think he could manage 60 pts with Straka and Shanny.

Robert Lang just wouldn't work because of Shanahan. It would be like pairing Allison w/ Skrudland, because of Brendan's waning footspeed, you need a center to compensate.

Lang was moving at a crawl during this postseason.

I would like to see him get a long term -- cheap -- contract.

Imagine if he scores like 30 goals and 70 pts playing with Jagr next season, suddenly he is a 3-4 million player...

If we could sign him to a 4.5m 3y deal he could end up beeing a real steal, if not we could always get rid of him. Low risk high reward.

id love Comrie on the Rangers. He has some grit to his game as well, he fought a few times in the NHL and even Kovalchuk


Avery Comrie Callahan He only had 6 pts in 20 games in the playoffs, that aint good.

Dubinsky has more grit and more talent. I realize he's young but why not just give him the second line center job instead of wasting money on Comrie?
