Dan needs to stop complaining.He makes nearly $1 million per.He will be lucky if Minnesota gives him a QO of 105% this summer.
To be fair, Fritsche's statement isn't a complaint, it's a response to a question. Whether you think he deserved one or not, the truth is he never really did get a chance here. He was a good soldier and kept his mouth shut while he was here; you can't blame the guy for expressing happiness over getting out of a crappy situation.

Do the reporters which cover the Rangers do any work besides covering the games?

I love reading Risebrough's quote about the Rangers looking for help on defense.

From one of those last quotes its interesting to see that it wasnt that he wasnt a solid defenseman, it was that he wasnt a "puck-mover" and didnt fit in with Minny. I can honestly say that the Rangers have enough "puck-movers" with girardi, rozsival, staal, kalinin and redden and I would love to see if this guy would work better in the "5-in-the-picture" defensive scheme Renney emphasizes as his physical play could work wonders for this team.

If you worked your entire life towards the goal of playing in the NHL and then, through little fault of your own, lost the opportunity to do so, wouldn't you be hoping and praying for something to change?

Edit to add: And yes, he made $850,000 this year. But that's not going to set him up for life, and without a chance to play, his chance of convincing someone to pay him that -- or anything -- next year were slim.

he's gone. Who cares what he says on the way out. At least he didn't say that a week ago.

Wow, epic trade

Fritsche served no purpose here..he never stood out or did anything that noticeable...granted he didn't play much, but I'm not upset at all about seeing him go. Reitz will fit in nicely to Hartford and as an injury replacement for a few games if needed.

Fritsche was used very little but wanted more than Reitz. He is not even a regular NHL defenseman. He is better than Potter? They are very similiar in style and both right handers. Not a good trade.

seriously though, I was never a fan of Dan. he just never stood out to me and some nights seemed like he had trouble skating let alone handling the puck. best of luck, you wont be missed.

on the other hand, always nice to have another Dman that wants to throw the body even if he "lacks mobility and coordination"

How could anyone say Fritsche is complaining??? The guy is stating exactly what happened. He did not get a fair shot. I'm glad he's excited and it shows the type of emotion he has for this game. He wants to play.

Someone commented on how he cant keep his balance...PUH-LEEZE. The guy sat out the majority of the season and basically just traveled with the team...what did you expect? Its just like a backup goaltender being cold sometimes because they dont play constantly. Fritsche wasnt playing at all so he was rusty when he got out there.

And no one should have expected more for fritsche. For one, he went through waivers where anyone could've picked him up, its not like his salary was enormous. And secondly, again, he did not play so how could we ask for more for a player that no one got to see most of the season. The Rangers had no leverage because other GMs like Riseborough (or however you spell it) knew the rangers were in no position to ask for anything

I'm sick of hearing that Fritsche didn't get a fair shot. It was a crowded training camp to be a forward for the Rangers. He had his chance in pre-season and camp to stand out, he didn't. After that he still saw playing time, and not playing time on the 4th line, he saw time on the 2nd and 3rd lines. Didn't stand out, in fact he pulled what many would calla "Dawes" and was quite "invisible" in a lot of games, especially his last game as a Ranger...on the 2nd line..

So not only was he the same kind of player that most of the wingers are on this team already, guys that aren't that physical, north american players or at least that style, that get hot and cold, will max out at 25 goals, etc. He was the odd man out.

I'm interested in why it is that the consensus here is Fritsche did not get a fair shot, but Patrick Rissmiller did. No one was up in arms when he got waived..and what'd he play, about 4 games as a Ranger?

IMO if it was just the fact that he didn't get a "fair chance" here, and there is the kind of potential you all claim there to be, there's absolutely no reason he would've passed through waivers.

I don't know if its correct to say that Fritsche didn't get a chance -- he never had a shot, so I guess he were given a chance and then didn't take it.

I had high hopes on Fritsche, many raw abilitys were there -- but he simply got zero hockeysense. I think he should be really lucky that he wasn't HFD bound right after camp. I seriously think that both Weise and Byers outplayed him in camp...

Message to Dan, you didn't get a real shot because you never showed the skills to deserve it, and when you were in the lineup, didn't show grit, or speed with the puck and you were a liability on the ice moreso than other Rangers.

I like this trade, bring in the 7th dman to shake up the top 6 guys playing D.

Larry Brooks also makes a suggestion about calling up Artem to give him a look at center with Zherdev and Moving Dubi to LW. For the first time in my life I am agreeing with him, Artem needs to get some NHL time and what better way than putting him with Z the dangler and letting Dubi be more of a grinder and shooter instead of a playmaker. Plus with Dubi's last two goals coming off the left side of the goal it could be a good move to make.

This of course would move Voros who was invsibile during the Pitt game back to the minors, he still lacks speed and looks tired most of the time, he needs better conditioning to complete his package. I can see voros getting a 10 game stint in hardford so we can call Artem up.

So the real question is, who will be the first dman to watch from the press box?

Ok, So I finally watched some games with this guy playing in. He HITS like a MOFO. Runs all over the ice hitting. Didn't notice him much other than that because he wasn't on the ice much. One of the games I watched was against the Ducks and I counted at least 7 hits and they are a tough hitting team my friends.

I'm starting to like this move.

I was doing the same, this was a very nice move.

If by some miracle Slats admits his mistake and uses this guy to temporarily take Redden's spot in the line up, and we trade Kalinin, this team will be set for Dcorps right to the cup.

At this point I would be cool with simply moving Prucha's salary and letting the poor guy play elsewhere and bringing Anisimov up to see what he can do.............I know you don't want to rush him but he seems go be dominating the AHL now

Were we forced to take Fritsche in the mix with Zherdev?

People say different things.

But I believe the reports were showing that we first offerred backman for Fritche and then they asked for tyutin and we said zherdev.

The trade wasn't done seperately it was backman and tyutin for fritche and zherdev.

To move Prucha , he would need more playing time to show other teams what he has.

I also think Renney actually likes having prucha around...he's a good sub when needed.

He's played in over 30 games at more than 12 minutes a night. That should be enough for other teams to know what he's got.

What has Voros done since that first week or two to continue getting shots over Fritsche?

Fritsche is no big loss, but I don't see the point of playing a scrub like Voros over a guy with speed and who has scored goals in this league before.

It's also enough for teams to say he's not worth $1.6M...

I can't believe people are actually mad at Fritsche for being happy he was dealt. If I was traded to an organization only to spend most of the season in the press box, I'd be pretty glad to get out of that spot too.

yup... especially being benched in favor of Voros who just might be the most useless player in the NHL, on a team that has scoring problems.
