Fantastic! $1.25 million for him is a solid deal, for both sides. The Rangers retain one of their reliable stay-at-home defense men who can only grow into a better hockey player. I was a big fan of Sauer last year.

If the team is trying to go deep this year we still need to find room to sign a veteran defenseman like Hannan or Eminger. I like McD-Sauer but combine their inexperience with a rookie 3rd pairing and you have a problem come playoff time.

Great Deal keeps him a RFA when this contract is up

Absolutely. I don't think the Rangers will go into the season without getting a veteran defenseman. And I suspect they are looking for a significant upgrade over Eminger. Someone who can play on the second pair consistantly.

perfect world, i think they, just like most of us, would love to get a top 6 LW and a reliable dman but i'm not sure there are any available and not sure cap space allows us to get both...so that might be the ideal but i'm not sure it will happen

Uhhh our top-4 is already set (and of the best in the league). Third pairing is the only question mark, and even w/that we have a plethora of young guys ready to take over the last two spots...let's steer away from the D and focus on getting a top-6 winger (we have the extra D-prospects to deal from strength...)

and if you could bring in a good vet to play with mcdonagh while dropping sauer down to play with erixon, giving a rookie a rock solid partner to help him adjust to the nhl, would that be a bad thing??

2nd pair vs 3rd pair doesn't really matter much imo. if the top 6 is rock solid then the pairings will work themselves out.

This would be my ideal scenario as well. Not sure who is out there that could be that 2nd pairing guy to play with McD.

You may think the top four defensemen are set, but I don't think management would necessarily agree. The organization wants to start winning in the playoffs, not next year, not the year after, but now. If they don't pick up a veteran defenseman to start the season, they will continue to look until they find one. I just don't see a real contender when you have 4 spots on defense filled by first and second year players.

Hannan would be a lot better than Eminger...a guy like Eminger doesn't really make or break us going deep, just gives us some stability in case the rookies are inconsistent.

You may be ready to dub the rangers top 4 one of the best in the league despite the fact that one of them has 40 NHL games and the other half of the 2nd pair has one season under their belt, I certainly hope management isn't that ready otherwise it could be a long season. If guys like Doughty and Myers are capable of big down years their sophomore year, it's very naive to think Sauer and McD aren't.

The Rangers Do NOT have the best top 4 in the league. They are a damn solid top 4, for sure...but not the best.

Eminger is the only 'veteran' in the picture IMHO because the Rangers can prob get him on a 1 year deal and aren't afraid to utilize him as a 7th. Any other player who would require a multi-year deal is out of the question. I'm okay with them going with Eminger and 2 of the younger players and depending on how the season goes, picking up some additional depth at the trade deadline if it's needed,

Doughty was a Norris finalist his sophomore year. He regressed a little last year; year 3.

While our D may have the potential to be one of the best in the league we are still very young, and really lack a experienced playoff performer and a high quality puck mover.

Exactly. I hope we find a good vet so support our young D but I would also be happy if we re-sing Eminger because I was pleased with his play at the few games he made.

You gonna give Sauer 3 mil a year after only 1 good year in the NHL? With his injury history? Because that's probably what it would take to sign him for 4 years. He'll still be RFA in 2 years. If he progresses, he'll get a longer term contract then.
