    And just so I’m clear, what I believe this team needs, and what should be obvious to everyone what the team needs, is impact players. Tampa’s third and fourth liners are not impact players. Panarin and Duchene are impact players. Timo Meier is an impact player on a cap fvcked team. Alex Killorn is the same old sh!t that will result in exactly zero more wins.

    With the exception of maybe Miller, acquiring anyone that Tampa is willing to give you is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. And anyone that brings up Tyler fvcking Johnson, I’d like to remind you that it isn’t 2014 anymore.

    Don’t be silly, Gorton can’t burn the Rock down. The building is lined with cap space which is not flammable. Didn’t they teach you this in middle school science class?

    Ray can offer Panarin a lot more money than the Rangers or Florida. Ray won’t though. If it comes up, he’ll give the same excuse that he just didn’t want to come here, and we’ll all believe it because we’re suckers.

    You proposed something that is literally impossible, trading for Panarin’s rights to give him an eighth year.

    Five can’t happen, and otherwise you’re talking in the same generalities your GM uses when he’s got bubkis.

    And we’ll get excuses here like, “some guys just want to play in Manhattan, it’s not Ray’s fault” and “The trade is one for one, that was awesome!”

    I am willing to listen to what people think Shero might plausibly do in the next couple weeks to improve the team outside of drafting Jack Hughes. All I see happening is the old second and a third for whatever.

    And my point is that a lopsided trade in his favor with a GM who made plenty of those is not much of an achievement, especially when it led to the team winning exactly one fvcking playoff game over four years.

    When he fails to build a team that is capable of sustainable success four years after doing that, and all we get are some crap draft picks in selling Hall off, Shero will go back to showing you the Stanley Cup ring he didn’t earn.

    It’s better than money unspent on an abstract notion of cap efficiency that will score exactly zero goals.

    I wanted Ray to trade minimal assets for Jacob Trouba who would have been our best defenseman. Notwithstanding Brooks’ click bait, it’s obvious he didn’t pick up the phone. I want him to follow through on his promise to “weaponize” cap space he’s been sitting on all these years, and all we’re going to get is some third line winger. He can’t possibly fvck up the draft can he?

    Someone else will be giving Hall that money. Alex Killorn and Brett Connelly will pick up the slack.

    “We have cap space, which is a great asset," Shero said. "But once you start spending it, it goes pretty quickly, and then you realize a year or two later, 'Oh boy.' So it's never been an issue of having the money to spend. From my standpoint, it's spending it wisely and, more importantly, spending it at the right time.” That was three years ago and nothing has changed except winning the lottery twice and still doing nothing. He’s a charlatan just like Harris’s other guy, Scam Hinkie.

    I listen when he repeatedly says that cap space, not good players, is the most important asset a team can have.

    $12 million a year with a lot of bonus money up front will be more than anyone else offers. That’s not the type of money Ray believes in giving anyone so he’s not going to pick up the phone. If you listen to everything the man says, he is of the belief that you win by having cap flexibility. He’s wrong of course, but he’s running the show.

    I work from home most of the time, so bet accepted. You’re paying for the costume though. I cannot wear it to court though, sorry.

    I’m guessing he’ll have his big summer acquisition — Tyler Myers — stand in for him while he’s out not making the team better. Myers may suck at hockey, but he’ll definitely make mince meat of me in the cage match.

    Or when it turns out I’m right, we can go to this plot of land I bought in French Guyana and enjoy a nice swing of fruit punch all together.

    I imagine this dope they brought on, Tyler Dellows, will tell him that Panarin is a bad player because he doesn’t score enough goals on a cap dollar basis.

    The Rangers. Gorton will also manage to get a huge haul for Kreider. Ray could try and give Panarin's agent a call, but won't because reasons.

    He's an RFA this summer and then has one more year til he's a UFA assuming he only agreed to a one year deal. There's a belief that he was only interested in signing a long term deal with a few teams. If the Rangers still gave up a lot for him, that would be one thing. But they gave up two months of Kevin Hayes instead. MSG is literally five miles away from Prudential Center and there is a decent chance that Trouba ends up living in the Jersey suburbs anyway, if he has any familiarity with the area,, which is doubtful. This is a very bad omen for things to come.

    "It's been reported" LOLOLOL. Whatever that "report" was Dreger walked it back, because the fact of the matter is that Trouba is an RFA without a no trade clause and arbitration rights. Number 34 overall and Vatanen half-retained is better than what the Rangers offered. A GM that was building a winner could convince Trouba to sign a long term extension instead of playing literally five miles away. But Ray is not building a winner, and he knows it.

    I understand perfectly. Ray has turned timid to the point of passivity. He pulled the heist on Chiarelli and figured he could live with the good will that came with it forever. It worked for a while. We gave him a pass on Mueller and pretend that Johansson actually did something useful while he was here. But now it's time to put or shut up, and you don't hear him say or do much now do you? He could have beat what the Rangers gave up for Trouba easily, but he cowered in fear that everyone automatically wants to leave for the bright lights brah, so why bother. You tell me though since you know how things work. Who is the "talent" that Ray is going to bring in that will make this team significantly better? It'll be the same B and C listers that he's brought in since he's got here but some analytics yes man will be there to tell him how savvy he is.
