we're keeping betts and orr for sure, I think some team might pay valley more than we can because he's a solid backup.....our money is going to signing our own players and we'll prob lose some because we dont have the moneys.

Erik Cole, who I would like us to acquire at the deadline from Edmonton if he is available. Hopefully he would work out and we'd find a way to re-sign him. I never liked playing Carolina because of him, and he totally fills a need for a big, strong power forward that can score 30 goals, hopefully on a line with Gomez that would make him look good. Like a poor man's Ribeiro-Morrow.

he would be a valid option as well...good thought...i would rather go for franzen though because i feel like cole may get quite a bit of money anyways....

Who I want, is Gionta. I want him to be back with Gomer. I'd kill to get Komisarek, but no way we'd have the space.

despite that i bet he'd still ask for big bucks , i rather take mara over him anyway , mara has proved he wants to play for this time at whatever price it takes.

I'd pass on Franzen because of his concussion history and the fact he is going to command some insane money on the FA market.

That being said, watch Sather clear cap space with a snowplow and sign him to a ridiculous offer.

Unfortunatly not much can be done for next yr............they have to resign some RFA's

They can move Rozi sure but that would only free up enough to get one descent forward and then give the Cally, Dubi,Zherdev their cash

Mara may come back but Kalinen is gondie

Betts and Orr I have no clue cause Renney loves them and they are cheap too..........I would guess they resign maybe even this yr as Sather does that alot

Vally is out for Wikman.........saves some cash too

Let's get through this year before we start worrying about free agency... however, keep Betts, Orr, and Mara, possibly Kalinin depending on how the kids develop in Hartford. We do have some RFA's to tend to as well...

I'd say of Betts, Orr, and Mara, the only one I'd say to 100% resign is Orr. With the other two, if guys from Hartford can replace them, then that would be my preference. The only situation in which I'd say definitely keep Mara is if we trade Rozsival and nobody is ready to step in.

Yea Orr for sure...........if they can get a cheaper option for Mara and Kalinen then they have to take it.....Mara back first of course..............Betts has been great but I have a feeling King Henriks Twin Joel may be a Ranger

Can he play the wing?...........that may be a fit for a deal even this yr

If we sign one person, I'd love for it to be Komisarek. He's a beast, exactly the bruising physical dman that we need...and he's from Long Island.

I can't wait for a season where the organization virtually ignores the free agent market. Now that will be refreshing.

Obviously you've forgotten the free agent season where they only signed Ulanov and Karpa

I'm pretty sure that's why I don't want him.

and it's a well known fact that he grow up an Islanders fan, no thanks.

BTW, I saw the UFA list, none of the bigger name guys stick out. If the Rangers are smart they would just wait til 2010 (like the Knicks are doing ) and pick up some guys, I think there are some big names out there that year.

If they can get a decent scorer, but I don't know if there will be any out there.
