Nylander a Ranger...

According to ESPN.com...I was expecting this all summer (him or Demitra), think it is the right decision, and like it....

3 years, 8.9 million.

Option for a 4th year at $3 million.

NHLPA.com lists Nylander as a Ranger.

Very good signing, I like him. Put a goal scorer with him, he could get 60-70pts.

Seems a little pricey, but I'm happy with Nylander

This is a great signing. I thought about Bondra and Nylander together again. More importantly Nylander can pass and can help a young player. Not to mention free Holik up to go to more of a checking line.

32 at the beginning of October, which makes this deal seem a little long IMO. He'll be 35 in the last year of his contract...

He had 1 goal and 13 assists last year in 18 games 17-43-60 the year before in 80 games and 15-46-61 in 2001-02 in the full 82 games.

A little old, a little soft, maybe too long of a contract for this guy.

But, if he does center Jagr, hopefully they can build some chemistry. I don't like the signing, not in love with Nylander, but if him and Jagr stay healthy and play together it will work out alright for the Rangers. Unfortunetly, if it doesn't work out great we are going to be stuck paying an old, soft center $3 million a year...but that's a different story.

that is probably not a contract that will be difficult to unload if it ever gets to that point.

Amen to that.

Did Jagr make a push for this signing?

We needed a 1st line passing C to dish to Jagr and knew it was only a matter of time before Sather signed either Demitra or Nylander....It was a necessity...And Nylander played well with Jagr..Yeah, there are some risks in the signing becasue of Nylander's health, but he is the exact type of player we need right now for Jagr and the team...

Now we have Nylander with Jagr on the 1st line and Holik centering a quasi-checkking line that will get 2nd line ice time...That allows guys like Lundmark, Moore and whoever to fight for a 2nd Offensive C spot and guys like Helminen and Betts to fight for 4th line duty or more...it's a real good set-up...

As for Nylander, I like the way the guy has played the last two years, both offensively and defensively..I'll be honest, I never thought much of Nylander until he joined WASH...But I saw most of his games in Washington and a number for Boston and I really liked what I saw both offensively as a passer and offense generator and on the backchecking side...And like i said before, he also played well with Jagr....

And, unless there are 3 UFA signing behind this, the Nylander signing does nothing to stall the youth movement and in facts puts the young players in better positions to succeed...Face it, we will still have 6-7 youngster in the line-up on the forewards lines and that's all that are really ready, if that..

Nylander's a competent center...

to center Jagr and frees-up Holik to play against top lines, which is what he's here to do. If that's the case, then I like it because I don't see anybody in the organization that should be centering Jagr at this current time. I'm not a big Nylander fan, but he will fill a void.

I like this signing. I was hoping for Demitra or Conroy, but this is a solid player...

What does it mean for Lundmark?

Personally, I'd like to see him move back to the off-wing. Try him with Holik again. Perhaps try him with Nylander & Jags. But obviously by no means should he be handed a role. He's gonna have to earn it.

Prucha-Nylander-Jagr
Rucinsky-Holik-Balej
Ortmeyer-Lundmark-Murray
Helminen-Betts-Strudwick

Poti-Tyutin
Kasparitis-Pock
Kondratiev-Rachuneck

Dunham
Valiquette

If Prucha doesnt sign bump Rucinsky up and they would sign Barteckos or Hlavac

Never been a big Nylander fan.

Having said that, the move simply fills a temporary void. Nothing more.

The one problem i do have is the amount of money he is making. A little under 9 million dollars for 3 years is a bit steep for a player who at best is a 20 goal, 60 point player at this point if he stays healthy.
