Well he's got to learn to cool it sometimes. He's a lot like Hollweg in that sense. He'll take a penalty or make a mistake by being overly aggressive, when he could have sent just effective of a message by taking it down a notch.

Like I said - Voros, Byers and Hollweg are going to battle in camp if they're all still with the Rangers. I think it's going to come down to who can pop in more goals of the three.

I hear you Nemchinov

giving Avery four years is riskier than Nasland's two. I hope Naslund can at least maintain his 25 goal level and around 60 points. If he can do that, it should be money well spent (again, I'm a bit disappointed that thus far, the team as constructed, will get pushed around, at both ends of the ice). I didn't follow Naslund much last season compared to past seasons so I really can't comment much on his points decline though.

nice move with Naslund [he should regain his scoring touch w/you guys]

Kalinin hasnt put it all together as of yet & gets hurt alot so the 1 year deal was smart.

Solid moves

They also signed defenseman Dimitri Kalinin to a one-year, $2.1M contract.

The Naslund deal is a bit of a gamble, but I think the odds are favourable.

He could of course continue his downward spiral and there's always the risk of lingering injuries with older players.

But I think that a change of scenery and dropping that looming cloud that always hangs over the head of the Captain for a team with problems could restore of his lost mojo.

In NY he'll be able focus on what he himself must do and nothing else.

Read in one of the Swedish papers that he has flown his favourite personal training coach over from Vancouver to work with him over the summer to be as prepared as possible.

To me that sounds like someone who's quite psyched up for the new opportunity.

That's a little steep for a third pairing defenseman, but the fact that Slats didn't just go out and sign a cheap, stay at home guy is just further proof that this team plans to play a much different game next season. We don't know who the #6 guy is going to be yet, but the 5 guys we are pretty sure about are all very good puck-moving, transition type guys. It seems to me like this team is going to be playing an up tempo, counter-attacking style. Lots of north-south, as opposed to the east-west of the Jagr era.

Who knows if it will be successful, but I think it will at the very least be more entertaining.

To all those worrying about Kalinin's cap hit: in a year where the cap was about 5 million less than this year's, we paid Paul Mara 3 million and Marek Malik 2.5 million. 2.1 million for Kalinin is a decent deal.

I agree. Naslund doesn't sound like he's going to be a problem. He's saying all the right things and genuinely wants to be here.

Yeah, I'm scared to pull up our opening lineup from 2006. I wonder how many guys are still here.

I've been following hockey since before a lot of you were born and I have never had less of a feel for what the team will be like in the coming season.

I was telling my friend: this team could end up finishing in first or last in the conference. It will be an interesting if not entertaining year.

$2.1MM for one year is fine. It's less than what we were paying Backman.

We have Henrik Lundqvist. There's no way we finish last in the conference.

Someone was saying earlier in the thread that he wears 91 when there's already a 19.

IMO he is the exact player the rangers need, and i am very heppy they signed him to a two year deal because he is a solid top two line player and you can never haver too many of those....also, he seems very business-like and i like it as i think he provides a good example for the younger players.........all of this on top of the fact that he can still play and is coming off a bad year on a team that couldnt score worth crap and that he came for relatively cheap on this market.....great job slats

Nice moves by Slats over the last 3 days.

Now all we need to do is add Pronger and Ovechkin and.....WATCH OUT RED WINGS!!

I think that's probably pretty accurate.

Personally, I like our odds, but it's not a sure thing by any stretch.
