Ryan McDonagh might not even sign with the Rangers

From the Rangers Board.

I know this has nothing to do with the Habs, but I can't find the "Former Player" thread. Plus I think it's pretty interesting...I don't know what he has against the Rangers. It's probably just a negotiating tactic.

" Rangers, who conducted organizational meetings last week, are believed keenly interested in signing Ryan McDonagh, whose rights they acquired from Montreal in the Scott Gomez deal, but the Wisconsin defenseman has a fair amount of leverage as he awaits an offer.

McDonagh, who turns 21 next month, would play his senior year for the Badgers if he does not turn pro. If he remains unsigned through next year, McDonagh would become an unrestricted free agent as of Aug. 15, 2011.

Chances are, then, if the 6-foot-1, 215-pound McDonagh, who is regarded as a proficient, stay-at-home type physically ready for the NHL, does not sign this summer, he will not sign at all with the Blueshirts.

And though it would seem necessary for Sather to offer the Entry Level max, we're hearing McDonagh will make his decision based less on the contract and more on his perception of the Rangers' program."

Let's get him back! That would be too funny! And a complete steal of a trade

Just imagine if he signs with us in a year. How hilarious would that be? So much for us being owned by the Rags in the Gomez trade haha.

Maybe Higgins could sign here in the summer, then McDonagh the next year.

Valentenko for Gomez, Pyatt and Busto.

No we don't want him. There's a reason he was traded. He was being an ass and he has bust written all over him. I have been saying it since the day he was traded.

It depends what your idea of a bust is...I think David Fischer has a much higher chance of being a bust then McDonagh. Maybe McDo won't be as GOOD as some thought he would be, but I still think he'll be a solid NHL defenceman.

Ok, so they have nothing to go on except the fact he's going into his senior year if he doesn't sign this summer?

I could have written this article.

In 2 years : Leblanc and Kristo may not sign with the Habs, because they've completed their junior years.

Amazing.

When he got traded to the Rangers, mostly everyone here was saying "Oh look, his potential is dropping. HAHA Rangers are stuck with a dud and a guy that can't score and we got Gomez LAWL". But now with this report coming in, some of you want him on the team again?

I don't get it.

How the **** does this article confirm your idea that he's a bust ?

What it says is that he's actually so good that he could command the entry level max (meaning a **** load of bonuses) and that he's not afraid one bit that he'll get his fair share of offers from other teams...

Think Blake Wheeler guys...

I dunno if he was too happy that we traded him in the first place. He might not want to come back to Montreal.

I am not surprised. The Ranger situation is chaos from Sather on down to the players. If McDonagh is a smart guy he will do a little research before he signs. Sacrificing a year of pro (not necessarily NHL) hockey at the beginning of your career to make a good choice can pay very good dividends long term.

How does him and his agent being so confident in his abilities that he's willing to become a free agent to get what he wants make him a bust? Only a player that knows he has ton of interest around the league would do this. See Blake Wheeler.

Some people think this is actually insider's info. It's a guy saying the kid is only one year away from free agency and it could be a good idea to wait it out.

Nothing from McD's agent or McD himself.

Some people wonder why the media get so much attention. Somebody writes a pure speculation piece and people here start to bash McD and question his character.

This thread is pure gold.

Well for them it was Gomez for Gaborik, so they have a reason to be happy about the trade.

I love Gomer though.

They have to look at one other thing though.

Habs with Gomez got into the playoffs. Rangers with Gaborik didn't. Just a thought.

Can we all just relax please? If that article would have been written by a Montreal journalist, you would have all say how stupid they are for writing this.

Other people from other cities can also be stupid....

Let's wait before making a judgment on if he will or not signed. And let's freakin wait before calling a kid a bust....Not because he is not going to exactly be what was portrayed to become, that he automatically is a bust.....And yet, we still have no idea if he'll underachieve....
