Next Year's Team?

I know this is probably a bit soon to be posting this...but why not. Thinking about the future will be the only thing getting my mind off the depression at hand. So, what do you guys think our team will look like next year? Who are the key subtractions and the key signings? Any prospects you think might make the team?

as they were shaking hands EO was saying Jagr wanted to play in the NHL for about 4 more years and that the Rangers were his first choice, so looks like he'll probably stay

I thought he said that he wanted to play 4 more years. He didn't say in the NHL. He said that playing in NY was his preference, but that he had family issues back home.

I would say Korpikoski has a great shot of making the opening night roster.

At least this series exposed our greatest weaknesses i.e. the PP, lack of power forwards and defensemen that can get the puck on net.

Alot of people want Shanny, Straka, Rozsival, and others gone, and I don't necessarily disagree, but who can we bring in?

Here's to hoping Sanguinetti somehow becomes a really responsible player in the defensive zone by next season, we could really use his shot from the point.

You guys think that with: Jagr, Straka, Rozy, Shanny, etc leaving, we might just become a borderline playoff team? Are Gomez and Drury really good enough to hold up our forwards?

Also, are we against trying to sign Hossa to play wing with Gomez?

There's no way Jagr plays 4 more seasons in the NHL. Look at the drop off in the last 2, can you imagine him 4 years from now? If that rumor about the RSL team offering him 12M$ is true, you just watched JJ's last NHL game. This is not Mats Sundin chasing a cup. JJ has two rings, albeit old rings, but 12M$ virtually tax free is an opportunity that a 36 year old, who has voiced a fondness for russia, cannot refuse.

I feel alot better knowing that Korpikoski's good showing today will let us kick both Shanny and Straka the **** outta here (as long as he comes to camp in this form!)

I am sick of people blaming the d. they played a strong game. Girardi played flawless. . it was the damn forwards who were invisible today.

Not so sure I agree with that. Rozy took three penalties, and it seemed like every time he, Strudwick or Girardi had to clear the zone, they couldn't. I agree with the forwards needing to step it up, but I think the only outstanding guy on the ice tonight was Lundqvist.

I'm not knocking your lineup, but imo, it gets us nowhere. Unless Dawes/Dubi/Cally all can get like 15-20 goals each. I hope we trade for someone.

If I'm Sather, I'm figuring out a way how to get Cherapanov over to America ASAP. Whether he starts in the NHL or needs time to grow in the AHL, we're going to need some scoring.

As long as Gary Bettman is commissioner and Colin Campbell head of Referees we will never advance further than this. Never. So save the we have a bright future ahead of us. The league favors small market teams like the Penguins at any cost while bringing down the rest of the league with them. And they get all the disgusting calls. This league is a disgrace. I am so turned off from Hockey right now.

No, he said that Jagr wants to play four more years. He did not say he wants to play 4 more years in the NHL. He did say that Jagr said NY was his top choice. Jagr has also said in the past that he wants to finish his career playing for his hometown team in the C.R.

Well Girardi did kick the puck onto Hossa's stick for the GWG, but that's just bad luck.

Nevertheless, our defense did make some pretty bad coverage mistakes in this series, but the big problem is lack of offensive production. We currently have no defensemen that can reliably get pucks on net from the point. None. Our best hope was Mara, but he was fumbling pucks at the blueline all series long and missing the net regularly.

That team does not make the playoffs.

Unfortunately, the Penguins looked pretty much unbeatable this series.

Despite the fact that the Rangers are probably the second best team in the East, we could only eek out 1 win.

What's sad is they better get used to it.

Crosby/Malkin/Hossa/Staal/Malone/Fleury?

What is the median age on that group? 23?
