Barnababy is one of those guys who you despise but would love to have him on your team...but Poti is garbage and we need a physicall presence not more offense.
I agree.....make it Greg de Vries (Rags are shopping him, also) instead of Poti, and if the pick is not a ridiculous one, then do it.
As for Barnaby, I hate the guy but he is valuable, especially in games like last night's against the Sens. He can fight, but also can play the game...a Dale Hunter-type (I hated him, too)....hate to play against him, love to have him on your team.

I don't want to have Barnaby here!! NO WAY! this guy would be useless cuz he can't even fight!
That's fine because there isn't fighting in the playoffs.
This is a different Matthew Barnaby than we have seen in the playoffs. He's not a difference maker, and he is still a pain in the arse agitator, but he does produce offense and doesn't embarass himself while he's on the ice. Since being in New York he's been on of the Rangers most consistent players.
What would anything think about Mark Messier? Sure he's 42 and would be nothing more than a 4th liner, but all the experience and leadership he would provide for this team would really make a difference. There's no better role player around, and he's going to retire, so we don't have to pay him too much.
Sure, I would want Messier. Leadership and experience aside, heck he has 16 goals this year also. He could help the Flyers, but I seriously doubt the Ranjerks would trade him anywhere. Especially to the Flyers.
