I thought it was a decent writeup

not great but good. This was good to hear....

"This is the first time in the last two years it's going to have time to work during the summer," Jagr told the Associated Press. "I think I can be better than I was last year, or maybe the year before that. I'm going to make sure I'm going to be the best player I've ever been."

Otherwise It's pretty obvious where we're lacking. All anyone can do is say the same things until we sign someone or the season starts, but that's the nature of hockey in June.

I disagree. I think we need one top six center, and I'm fine with letting everyone else develop. Of course I wouldn't mind losing Malik, but our D's not bad- when we're playing team Defense that is. A Brian Leetch type who could bail us out sometimes would be huge though. I'm not even talking about his offense, but someone with speed who could foil breakaway's, and 2 on 1's, like Leetch would. Just one or the other of those two, would make my season(+ a playoff birth, of course).

We do need to sign 3 top 6 forwards. Most around here just assume that Nylander and Shanahan are 2 of the 3.

I'd keep Rachunek. The rest I agree with, except Stall will spend the season in Hartford.

Shanny, Nyls, Drury. Shanny to 3rd line, though.

Was Rachunek qualified? I have seen lots of comments on this bard from Rags fans that the team should walk away from his 1.8 (-10%) qualifier. Has the team submitted? Has anyone seen any indication on the plans for this player from management?

Staal may need seasoning however I'm not writing this season off for him in the AHL yet. I'm willing to see what he does in training camp and exhibitions first. Barring injury I expect he'll get some time with the big club before the year is out if he doesn't make the team off the bat. The TSN article also thinks Montoya may be ready--as I do.

Straka Nylander Jagr
Shanahan Drury Hossa
Callahan Dubinsky Bourret
Avery Betts Cullen
(this is in the event that Prucha gets traded for a prospect or pick)

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

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


I know some of these are longshots, but which of those three forward lineups would you guys prefer?

Montoya will be in NYR. The letdown Lundy had at the beginning of last season suggest it is wise to keep the Bryzgalov of our own around.

Little surprised they didnt get into the possibly that this could be Jagr's final year.

But hey, iguess they aren't reading what we are.

(I don't think it will be his last)

This has got to be the worst lineup I've ever seen. I don't even want to look at ur other lines since ur 1st is HORRIBLE. Let me get this straight, Avery has been one of our best energy guys and you have him on the 4th line? You have Bourret ahead of Avery? You have Dubinsky ahead of Cullen? You have Cullen on the wing?

I like TSN.com, but that's a terrible article.

Nothing new whatsoever. The writer speculates and takes quotes quoted like......a month ago. Nothing insightful.

I see guys on these message boards write more useful, well-thought out and insightful stuff, than the clown who wrote that lameass garbage.

I wonder if Stan Fishler wrote that lol, after him thinking Yashin will end up here, I hope he continues to be wrong.

The disregarding of Petr Prucha continues, amazing.

Also, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Cullen probably won't end up on the wing on the 4th line.

It's unbelievable how quickly and easily some Rangers fans are willing to discard Petr Prucha.

A young, promising (Rangers Draft Pick) NHL player who while still having some things to work on in his game, has all the tools and heart to be a productive and reliable player on the Rangers; for a long time to come.

Unbelievable.

It seems it's better to keep guys like Hossa, Cullen and Straka than to build a legitimate Second Line which will put Prucha in a position to utilize his skills.

.

That pretty much sums it up. What's even more amazing is that for a fanbase that had to endure 10 years of guys treating this organization like a Country Club you would think we would appreciate a young, talented player we developed who plays with the heart prucha plays with. Apparently not.
I saw in another thread that someone wanted to trade Prucha and our 1st rounder to move up 5 slots in the draft. You can't make this stuff up.
