Need to get rid of Christensen

This guy is only good for shottouts and faceoffs and there are no shootouts in the Playoffs. In his last 9 games he has 0 points, last season he had only 2 goals(both in 1 game) in his last 15 games of the season. You can't find a less clutch player going into the playoffs. It is because of relying on players like him we missed playoffs last season and will likely miss this season.

He makes 800k and is signed for 1 more year. He may come in handy next year as a cheap option for a 3rd or 4th line center with skill, and can bounce around and play anywhere in the lineup in the case of injuries. Of course we could use an upgrade, but he is the least of our problems right now. Our powerplay is losing us games, and we need a legit first line center who can lead the offensive playmaking.

we need his faceoff wins on the PP for now. No need to get rid of him for no reason. Especially before we replace him. If you can convince Dallas to take him in a Richards package, by all means but don't hold your breath there.

So what if he is cheap? He doesn't get the job done offensively.

Our PP is not the biggest issue. We need 2 more good defensemen, our top defensemen are playing more icetime than they should because our 3rd pairing sucks and their play has gotten worse because they are worn out and tired. Our forwards can't properly focus on offense because our defensemen need help because they either stink or are too worn out and start making bad passes and cough up the puck.

or we can package him for some other decent center/rental.

Not quite sure if there's actually any kind of demand for Christensen. His salary is negligible, and, at the moment, he's not really blocking anyone. Once Richards is signed in the off-season, (yes, I fully expect after last night's revelations), there won't be a spot for him anyway.

if he gets traded whatever but this team does need to get all the pts they can get to even get in the playoffs and he can help in that. Regardless I am sure Sather has him available

Not sure why there is a fuss about Christensen being on the team. He makes next to nothing and is money in the face-off circle and in shootouts. Teams need third and fourth line centers too.

The problem is the team doesn't have enough primary scoring weapons.

0 points in the last 9 games and you don't see a problem? He sucks as a primary scoring, he sucks as a secondary scoring, he sucks defensively, he doesn't hit, or provide energy. He shouldn't be playing. His minutes should go to players like Zuccarello

I just thought it was funny that Christensen has his own hate thread. The Titanic is sinking and you're complaining that the dining service is slow.

Simmons reports that Brad Richards doesn't want to land in Toronto. Def not his first choice, but I doubt that stops Leafs from bidding

Richards wants to sign in either Dallas, New York or Tampa, but cap situation isn't great in any of them. Will be interesting what he gets.

It is the Gilroys and Del Zottos and Christensens and Drurys that are sinking the Titanic.

Perfect!

Uh what has MZA done?

Also: EC is not doing any worse than any of the others who were injured.

"NEED" to get rid of him?

Very low on my priority

I'd rather save AA for the deal for a RH complement to Staal on the top D pairing.

Are you kidding? Prospal who I thought was done has 3 points in 7 games.

Christensen has 14 points in 43 games; Zuccarello the rookie has 14 points in 25 games.

Callahan after injury has 7 points in 8 games.

We are 6th in the NHL in goals against per game. Gilroy and MDZ are not the issue. We're 21st in offense and I agree that Drury's cap hit handcuffs our ability to add scoring threats to the roster. But if you expected Christensen to chip in 40 points, you were setting yourself up for disappointment from the get-go.

I despise Christensen, and would prefer that he was never re-signed. However, given everything going on with this team, I do not believe that Christensen is an entity worth expending any time and energy worrying about. When Fedetenko comes back, Christensen is the most likely candidate to be scratched, and he has little to no value as a trade asset. But, unlike Drury and Todd White before him, Christensen impact on the Rangers' cap situation is minimal.
