The rangers can get a lot more dangerous if they make the right moves. I for one am scared.

At least Brad will always have dress shirts the perfect length to wear untucked to remember New York by.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I'd bet money Richards will be an Islander before the end of next week.

It will probably happen around the draft so Lou can see who else gets bought out

Wonder how cheap we could get Richards for. Wouldn't be a terrible option. I don't think he's incredibly washed up, was just on an awful contract.

I think we will know definitively next week. It sounds like Volchenkov is a possibility based on Lou's comments that it was under consideration.

Would not be stunned if we looked into Richards ourselves.

i agree id be willing to look into him but not for anywhere near what the flyers gave vinny, and unfortunately someone is probably dumb enough to do just that.

I'm not so sure. Isles seem intent on adding a winger for Tavares and at least one defenseman if not two.
Rangers still have to pay Richards the remaining money on his huge bonus I believe. I think that's exempt from the buyout and reduction calculations.

Apparently, he doesn't want to leave the area. If that's true, its either us or the Isles. Hopefully its the Isles.

If we miss on Stastny and others I wonder how cheap he would come. 2 years, $4 per? At the least, it would slide Henrique over to wing where he is a much better player. 

 

Ruutu - Zajac - Jagr

Elias - Richards - Henrique

 

Not great, but certainly not terrible.

I would be surprised if Lou didn't call. I would do a 2 year deal or 3 year deal. I wouldn't go beyond that. He would help our forwards and especially PP options at center. Henrique could move to wing and Ryder might benefit from having a Richards type.

We could still make a trade for a winger and maybe dump Brunner.

Elias is better suited at center in my opinion in this stage of his career. I think he sees the game better at that position. I'd definitely take a chance on Richards as a winger though, I think he would do better at that position. We still have to move one of Ryder or Brunner in my opinion in order to open up some room to sign a better forward or two. Preferably I want Ryder gone since Brunner is younger and we can use his speed. I also want Ruutu and Zubrus on the third or fourth line. Our entire lineup is a mess right now so I can't wait for Lou to clear up some room on D and F.

He's sooo slow, his footspeed is terrible.

 

The last thing we need is another slow bottom-6 forward.

Elias is better at wing and he has stated often he does not like playing center. Richards is a center and does not play well on the wings.
