Sergei Brylin - Should Rangers sign him?

Should the rangers sign him in the offseason? I say yes. He is a Group V ufa. And is good defensivly. He can play centre or wing. And has played with Holik in the past. If devils let him go, Rangers should sign him.


If a player has completed at least 10 seasons of professional hockey (in the NHL or minor leagues) and earned less than the NHL average salary during the previous season, he has the right to become Unrestricted Free Agent. Eligible players have until July 15 to elect Group V status. A player can be a Group V Free Agent only once in his career.

Sergei Brylin ($1,550,000)

IMO---no.

Another player who plays better within the Devs system then what he'd be like without it.

Plus we have to worry more about top end talent rather than role players.

Exactly. He also isnt worth the type of money he is going to ask for. I for one hope the devils do not try to resign him.

It would depend...

on who else is signed and/or traded for, along with his cost. He's good defensively (and not bad on the PP) and can score 15-20 goals and would look real nice alongside Holik, with whom he's played with before with success for a couple seasons. I wouldn't say flat-out no, but he wouldn't be a top priority either.

I would look at him

possibly to play LW on Jagr's line.

A reasonably sound defensive player that can score as well. Not a bad choice for that spot.

But if the money is the same between him and Konowalchuk then I'll take Kono.

Id like Holik Brylin Konowalchuk line, that would be good. On defense, id take a stab at Cullimore and Modry.. Modry is just as good as Poti offensivly and at least plays better defense. If it makes Poti expendable, im for it.

how bout instead we let young players play and rebuild that way maybe we might have a chance of being good again sometime in our lifetime instead of repeating the same mistakes we've made the last 7 years?

We cant have a team full of kids. Anyways I was suggesting a real checking line. We had not had one in years. If we signed Brylin and Konowalchuk, their would still be room for Balej, Lundmark, Prucha, Murray, etc.

We also can't have a team full of third line grinders.

or considering that most of our kids are 3rd/4th line role players, we could make a real checking line using the kids

after watching Modry play to many games on the Kings blue line I can honestly say he would be a horrid mistake. The Rags need defensive defenceman not another Poti clone who is just as soft just a little older and a little cheaper. Go after Matvichuk or Zhitnek. Modry belongs in Russia or somewhere way far away

yeah its a tough call. I actually like Brylin, he has a good talent level but has been asked to check and backcheck.

If its a choice between Brylin and another Free agent vet, I would pick Brylin. But if its brylin or a kid I would choose the kid.

For the record brylin is very underated.

hmm I would have gone with Conroy, Carney and perhaps Brylin (if they don't bring up a kid) but rolston ain't chopped liver and Zhitnik has very good skills especially on the powerplay. He would be a nice pairing for Kaspar.

You can't have a team full of kids? Well, guess what. That's how it's going to be because you won't be seeing any UFA's worth their salt banging on the Ranger's door anytime soon. And why would you want to sign UFA's of that caliber? So you can continue to finish 10th in the conference?

You either go all out via the FA route or you take your lumps and develop the organization the right way

I can't believe we're still having this conversation.

kazo...

if the GM wasn't an idiot and the coach didn't suck, you can strategically acquire UFAs and still groom kids the right way. Throwing three guys on a top line who have 50 NHL games' experience is no way to groom any youth. And especially with this Rangers club where many of the youth may not be NHL-ready, there is a need for veterans here and there, but you go about this with a plan. You have important positions available for a couple kids to battle out who are worthy.

there's a balance that can and should be searched out

in terms of youth and vets.

the fact that this team is really lacking the hardworking kind of vets, there's only 2 forwards I would target and be happy to get either one.

Conroy or Konowalchuk.

Both players fit a need, both players play sound defensively, with Conroy being a real good fit with Jagr. Kono would also look good playing LW on Jagr's line as well.

There's going to be an abundance of spots open for youngsters. This tema is in serious need of players than can log top line minutes and I don't believe that we have the players at the C and LW positions to warrant that right now.

Say for instance we signed both Kono and Conroy, and a youngster emerges as a top line talent, we would then have the luxury of playing the 2 vets on the 2nd and 3rd lines which only makes our team better. The problem is having a coach and GM with the balls to make that call.

There's a balance that we need to reach, to much in either direction and we are going nowhere.

Don't you think it will be difficult, if not impossible, to attract ufa's of any value as long as the team is going to go through what it's going to go through? I would think that there won't exactly be a line of players knocking on Sather's door looking for FA contracts.

I don't disagree with that kazo...

but it doesn't mean Sather should put his head between his legs and not pursue these guys.

The last time we signed "good defensive fowards" was Keene and Taylor(Just won the cup) and that didn't work out too well either. At the same time I do think there will be UFA signings for a G, D, and 2-3 fowards.
