Had a nice last few years. Solid player with a good two way game. Would look nice on our 2nd line, if you ask me. Could be great with Drury.

Anything that prevents a top 6 including both Dawes and Prucha is fine with me.

He's certainly intriguing if healthy.

he played 80 games one season but other than that he has missed significant time every other year. with our cap situation, i dont know if he is someone worth gambling on.

36 points in 43 games last year. I'd take a shot with him. Seems like he could fit a top 6 role.

Don't want to start a new thread but Tampa seems to have a lot of wingers and rumor has it they are over their self imposed cap. If I'm Sather I'd inquire about Jussi Jokinen

In my opinion, its worth using the little cap space we have left on a cheaper gamble on a guy with some high-end, top 6 talent.

If it doesnt work out, you're left with the current situation of Dawes and Prucha being counted upon for that role.

Supposedly Williams is holding out for a considerable raise. He doesn't strike me as the player we're really looking for.

I don't know a lot about Jokinen to be honest.

I know he's listed as a LW, but, I seem to remember him playing center in Dallas, too. If that's the case, and the Rangers do not feel AA is ready, I'd look into getting him to be the 3rd line center, and move Dubi up between Drury and Fristche, on the 2nd line. Jokinen flanked by Korpi and Callahan would be a pretty quick 3rd line.

Williams played in Carolina right? I would try to clear some cap room and sign him. Anyone know his and Jokinen's stats?

I was considering Williams for the 3rd line before they got Fritsche.

I think hes too small (5'11 - 194) for what the Rangers have up front right now. Up front meaning top 6. Even though there was that whole thread about the lack of size up front and it may not mattering, it doesnt hurt to have a little size to go along with a much smaller Drury line. - I still think if they get a winger it should be a guy who can skate but is over 6'0 and can get into the traffic areas. Thats why i was so ecstatic about the Zherdev deal. 6'2 200 for a skilled guy like him - you dont come by that too often.

For the hell of it, lets look at the sizes of the top 15 forwards from smallest to largest, with the top 6 (arguably) in bold.

Keep in mind that some of these numbers are inflated (Prucha...)

Dawes..........5'9 - 190
Drury............5'10 - 190
Callahan.......5'11 - 188
Gomez..........5'11 - 200
Prucha...........6'0 - 175
Naslund.......6'0 - 195
Korpokoski....6'1 - 195
Fritsche.........6'1 - 206
Dubinsky.......6'1 - 210
Sjostrom.......6'1 - 217
Zherdev.......6'2 - 200
Voros............6'3 - 205
Betts.............6'3 - 210
Orr.................6'3 - 222
Rissmiller.......6'4 - 220

Avg, Height - 6'0
Avg. Weight - 201

It would be nice to add a little more strength into the top 6, while maintaining the speed and skill necessary to play with those centers. Its not going to be easy to come by.

If we sign another player I want Selanne. He is elite. One of the best Europeans ever. FAST - they don't call him the Finnish Flash for nothing. A Stanley cup winner. A constant scoring threat. He's demonstrated his ability over the course of his career (as opposed to William's encouraging but nevertheless spotty past 3 seasons). We can sign him for just one year and not be anchored down next year when the likes of Cherepanov, Anisimov, Sanguinetti will probably all be ready to play.

Do we even have the cap room? I read somewhere he was going to a team in eastern Canada.

lol, I've never seen Prucha listed anywhere as 6'0. I'm 5'7 and 3/4's and I was as tall if not a shade taller than him when I stood next to him

Most NHL'ers lie about there height and weight. I've met many NHL'ers like Gionta and St. Louis, and Marty is probably around 5'5", and Gio is probably around 5'4". he was at about under my chest [im 6'3"]

How about Ladislav Nagy?

A LW'er that can score 50+ points with solid playmaking ability and a decent knack for the net.

was hurt last year, but based on projections, was on pace for 15-20 goals and 30-40assists

Would help round out our top six very nicely.

Of course, if he's asking for to much money, then we look elsewhere.

Nagy will definitely demand more money than we can give and Jussi Jokinen isn't coming here because we don't have NHL ready D-Men to spare in a trade that will almost certainly require them.

Was thinking that to, but I've not heard his name associated with anyone since the UFA signing period began and the pickings are starting to get slim if folks are signing Bertuzzi before a guy like Nagy.

Maybe he takes a bit less than what he expects?

who knows
