Not true. If anything he doesn't shoot enough and passes too much.
I beg to differ given the shots he's taken that FLY around the net wide. I have seen some games where shots counted are way off and some where they on top of things. I guess it is as flawed as the +/-.
Not true. His 6.66m a year cap hit is more than manageable.
I'm not seeing where you state that his cap hit will allow Parise to resign, allow Elias to play another season, allow us to sign a SOLID goaltender. Granted these things are the future, but how can you say it is manageable with no facts of HOW it is manageable. HOw close to the cap are they when they are able to resign Parise and given what has happened thus far, will he return?
Yes, its ridiculous and has to stop.
THANK YOU. I have my doubts that it will ever stop or be managed. Hopefully the team will suprise me.
Not true. It always depends on the makeup of the entire team. The Rangers brought in superstars for years and failed. This team has slowly become a bad team over a period of years. And already we are not even bad anymore after sucking last year. The next couple years we will develop and become good again. You can't expect any player to just come in and turn the team around instantly. You are not the only one guilty of this, we all are.
How would you define the rest of the team? Are they defensively able to counter-act the defensively liablility he has this year and last year? I'm not sure what crystal ball of the future you are looking at, but there are not concrete facts, only speculation and hope. Let's remember the gems named "FOSTER" that were drafted and never panned out. Parise was awesome, but it is chance.
The Rangers brought in older players (Jagr, Shanahan, Gretzky, and that second go with Mark Messier). Richards is a good pick-up and always was. I had hoped the Devils would have signed him. He would've made a better fit than Kovalchuk or he might have helped Kovalchuk and vise-versa, but who would've gone to get him with Kovalchuk?
?????? Nothing. This means nothing...
I don't understand. Everything means something. Kovalchuk is on the ice for a LOT of goals, granted he is on the ice a lot period, but the scoring he provides versus the scoring that happens when he is on the ice is not a positive number most times.
This can be fixed by giving him a defensive player to play on that line that we eiher don't have or haven't utilized or by NOT having him on the team to commit those horrible turn-overs. Is the "chance" of him scoring worthy of the all the turn-overs and goals he gives up? I say "NO", the stats say so too.
Well 1 out of 4 isn't too bad.
