J.Lundqvist over Dubi? Jesus...Dubi is only a sophmore. Give him a break. Check out the first 3 year stats for Zetterberg & Datsyuk. It even took them a couple of years to catch on...as does with most players Dubi's age.

Yes dubinsky to wing ,what is he doing thats so special on center right now? only reason i put J.lundqvist in there is obviously because it would benefit his brother to be on the same team.
Those are the guys who are currently not healthy scratches. And are under 30. 8 of them are 25 or younger.
And there is NO ONE in Hartford to step up, other then Anisimov, Sanguinetti is not ready yet. And Anisimov is not ready yet either.
Guys like Weise, Soryal, Sudgen, Parenteau, etc.. have slim to no chance of being NHL players. Not for this team.
There are no young guys in Hartford or in Juniors that are ready.
And besides that, MOST of the guys in our lineup every night are in their EARLY 20's.
Won't know till we try. Girardi would have languished in the minors if it wasn't for an injury to have him called up. No reason not to TRY internally before going externally. He also went 9 months without scoring a point when he first came up...but they gave him a chance.
How much trouble would it be to give Sangs 3 games to see if he has learned anything so far. What happens if we see that he is a legit pp qb? Then that makes a move for Redden , Rosi or Kalinin more plausible and not a gamble to get something back for him.
How much trouble would it be to allow Ani a few shifts in the big game to see where he's at. Can't be worse than Dawes Fritche Prucha. And if he does well, it bolsters the center position to make someone like Gomez expendable. I think you could get a 1st or 2nd round draft pick for him. Or some good top 6 prospect talent to fill the stable.
How much could it hurt to sit Kalinin for 3 games to see how a dman from the Wuffpak works out.
You can't step up if you never get the opportunity to do so. And training camp is not an indication of if they can play. You gotta give them a few games, and some practices as part of the squad.
And let's put it this way, if you were to call up let's say Sangs, and he does show that he's got the skills and tenacity to stick. That makes people like Kalinin expendable. And alters the way the GM would look at any deal. He wouldn't trade for a dman if the position was ably covered. Then he could trade for something else the club needs, like a Right Wing...or a Physical Dman.
um...maybe you should add every player from the Ottawa roster.
There be good deals there soon.
FireSale...every player must go. Buy one today and get a free cupholder with your purchase.
Which players from that team with some of those contracts?Unless they want to swap contract for contract.The Rangers aren't in a position to add more signed players without shedding future money in the deal.
That's true. But maybe we can take a risk on him. If he doesn't come back he wouldn't count against the cap right? Of course we have to get him here and I don't know what that would take but I like him and if we could improve our chances of getting him to sign here (with a good contract) the following year that would be amazing. We might be able to grab him cheap because of his injury.
You want to acquire a player who has not in nearly 2 years because of a bad back.
He only doesn't count against the cap if he is on long term IR and the Rangers use his money for a replacement(s).In other case,he counts against the cap.
Some people question the Rangers cap moves and come up with trading for a injured player on LTIR.
