Balej

Thought you guys might be interested in this:

BTW Balej has 5 goals and 4 assists in 8 playoff games.

http://www.canoe.ca/AHL/News/2004/05/02/444947.html

Maybe Hartford will play Hamilton.

I don't think Balej will play in the NHL, at least not for a long time so trading him, as good a minor leaguer as he is, isnt that bad.

He definately have the potential to play in the league.

It was a good trade. We already got 3 prospect in Hamilton that were ahead of him in the depth chart(hossa, perez, plek).

I think we all know that Balej is an excellent prospect, you don't get a player like Kovalev for just anyone...the trade has worked out well for us so far, and we shall see how well it works out for the Rangers down the road. Up until the infamous incident, Perezhogin had a point in every playoff game also if I remember correctly.

If Kovalev resigns with Habs, I believe it'll be a win-win deal for both clubs.

Hopefully Kovalev does resign. I'd love to see him back next year.

it's not surprising that Balej was on the 1st AHL All-Star game , he has nothing to prove in the 'A' now ... aside playoffs production and he's doing well

I would love to see Bure ready for next year , teaching the young JB

Pavel Bure will not be a Ranger next season.

The Rangers have a club option for 2004-05 worth $11 million

The Rangers will not exercise their option

Besides,Bure will most likely never play again

Maybe Hartford will play Hamilton.
Why would we be interested in that? He's not our player anymore, thanks, but no thanks.

There's no way Plekanec and Hossa were ahead of Balej on the depth chart. For one thing, Plekanec will likely end up playing on the third line at the center spot. In as much as Balej will be a scoring winger, rather than a checking center like Plekanec, the depth chart has nothing to do with it. As for Hossa, he hasn't yet shown the kind of mental toughness that Balej has, so it's debatebable that he'd be ahead of him on the depth chart. Balej was one of the most valuable AHL players this year and is ready to make the jump. Hossa, on the other hand, despite having played a bunch of NHL games, is showing signs of becoming a longer term project.

The trade was still a good one, imo, but we gave up a talented young guy to get Kovalev. The thinking had to be that Perezhogin or Kastitsyn would eventually end up being as good or better than Balej (as an offensive threat) and he was therefore expendable. Hossa and Plekanec, imo, had nothing to do with it.
