Couldn't be any further from the truth.

Brandon has better passing skills, a better shot and is tons more physical. He's as fast as Fritsche and as defensively responsible.

They are nothing alike in terms of overall skill and ability.

Say what you want, but if the Rangers really really wanted Shanny back, he'd have been signed during the summer.

They would have gladly signed him to a one year deal at 500K, but not more than that.

In essense, they didn't want him back.

OTOH, Sather and Zherdev's agent have already been working out an extension. Both parties want to get something done and will have somehting announced before the end of the season.

I'd love for the Islanders to claim him, but if he wasn't traded it's because there was likely no interest.

I won't say that, because Snow stated he wasn't interested in giving up assets for goalies, that could be true for players at Frische's end of the spectrum as well.

I see there being interest, just not alot interest in giving up an asset for him.

Even with the deadline only a month away, I'd be shocked if they grabbed him.
Fritsche is more talented and better than half the scrubs the Islanders currently use as forwards. Thompson is completely useless. Sim is less than useless. It's completely worthless for them to keep Park who is a 32 year old role player on such a lousy team. They should trade him immediately. Comrie has always been a lazy, underachieving waste of space. It's almost about time people view Tambellini as a bust.

Fritsche has put up some decent numbers only playing 58 and 68 games in a couple of years. The Islanders were beyond stupid not to pick him up. Just provides further proof how incompetent they are as an organization.

Ok I am so glad you know so much

So apparently we will know if he is claimed later today. So we have all these players we are giving chances to play this year during a rebuild.

Since we might not pick up your favorite boy toy fritsche. Your upset???

Ok Sim and Thompson are 4th line players. Since we need to revamp our 4th line so bad and bring in Fritshe to bring us to the promise land. We have about 5 of Fritshes in the AHL. It doesnt bother me if we pick him up or not

Lets get rid of Park, who is a great role player as you stated and not have him around to help all of young players. We want our players to play with the heart like Park does.

Comrie has picked up his game and is not a star player by any means. But lets be honest the Isles are in a rebuild so what are you expecting them to do. The organization has been run better in the last two years as seen in our draft last year and most likely this year.

We all know about Tambs but he still deserves sometime.

So go ahead and stare at your poster of Fritshe, maybe he will come to your house after waivers.

It seems more likely Fritshe is more of cap waiver. No team probably would give up a draft pick or prospect for him and the rangers did not want salary back.

Fair enough. I guess the way I see it is that Zherdev will put the Rangers in a much more difficult financial position this year especially if he is re-signed. With so many long term, expensive contracts and an expected cap reduction I have to think that the Rangers will be in significant trouble with Zherdev. If he's working with a $3.75M contract this year I have to think he'll be looking for a $5.5M annuallized cap hit or higher. What will that do for signing guys like Girardi, Dubinsky, Staal, etc. in the next year or two?

Columbus would have had the same difficult decision about re-signing him. It's not that he's not talented or a perceived problem (I think he fit in well in Columbus his last year and would have been a great player this year too) but he's going to create a long term problem with his expected demands. Columbus couldnt' gamble on that not knowing how their performance would be this year and the other young players on the rise.

The Rangers got the best player but I still think Columbus gets the best overall value based on need and long term financial implications. We needed a d-man like Toots. Yes, some would argue we needed a RW like Zherdev too but Huselius was signed to a contract that is likely to be less than Nik, shorter and has provided everything Zherdev did to this team.

Just my opinion

This season. I'd be shocked if it is that low in the coming seasons.

I say this every time this deal comes up, but I'll repeat it again here, I think both teams and fanbases (for the most part) are happy with the trade.
Rags replaced Tyutin with Redden and added Zherdev. Columbus added Tyutin and replaced Zherdev with Huselius. Both teams are better off.

Agreed. His salary is nothing at this point of the season. You would think that he's better then most of these AHL call ups that have been happening lately...

I'm 2 for 2 in calling waiver clearings this year when fans of other teams were freaking out and salivating over claiming them.

This went down exactly as I would have suspected.

He had zero value as he has done jack all this year and hasn't even gotten himself into the line-up.

Hopefully this lights a fire under his ass.

Agreed. Not a shocker to me that a guy with 4 points in almost 20 games isn't getting picked up. Everyone is just surprised becuase he's only 23 years old. Doesn't mean he is a good player - just one all 30 teams currently own.
