Let him and Kakko both go to NYR. Just two more elite players who will have their careers wasted because "BRIHHT LITES BRO"

With the amount of top-end players who actually WANT to play on the Rangers it is still pretty mind-blowing they have only have won 1 cup in the last 79 years.

L-O-L!

I would have agreed with you on Bratt being overrated at the beginning of last season.  However in his limited time this past season he did make a dent and seemed more consistent.  He just has to stay healthier.

Wood is another who is in a prove it year with Zacha.  You can also probably throw Q into that mix and possibly McLeod.

Surely Tampa couldn't afford to sign Karlsson? Capgeek has them with about $8m in space with a few players to sign. And if being in San Jose has been a problem for his wife and family I can't see how going to Tampa would make that better.

Wow.  Hard to say how the Lightning could get better, but landing Karlsson would do it.  And if he went to the Rangers, fvck that. 

Imagine if the Rags get Panarin, Karlsson, and Kakko in one offseason...

They’d never be able to afford their young and emerging core if they gave huge deals to panarin and karlsson.

Their young core, whatever that means, isn’t proven at all (unless I’m missing the sarcasm).  They’ll be very weak up the middle unless Kakko can play center or if we muck it up and don’t take Hughes.  Even with Karlsson if that actually happens, their D will not be deep at all for a couple of years until someone like Miller can establish himself, and that’s not a certainty.  

If Shestorkin is not the second coming that Rags fans think, they will be in serious trouble.

Imagine Ray drafts Kakko and they get Hughes instead.

I don't care if the Rangers sign Karlsson, he's overrated and injury prone. He barely played the 3rd period tonight.

Speaking of, neat little fact (good drafting): 

@HockeyPulz  With Yegor Rykov reportedly signing an ELC with the Rangers, that means that all 9 players selected by the #NJDevils in the 2016 NHL draft have signed NHL entry-level contracts. How crazy is that?

Roy and Melnyk would get along great. I definitely don’t foresee any issues there whatsoever. 🤪🤣

wow thats honestly a shame

Can't make people be interested in something they aren't interested in. I was given free tickets if I wanted them through my Devils season tickets and I honestly wouldn't waste my time and money for gas and tolls. If they let them check like the men I would be more interested but when they take something important like that out of the game then I'm not watching. 

Also seems like the Devils and Buffalo bailed on the league because it's a mess and the majority of players aren't going to even play because they don't make enough to have it be worth it.

Agreed.  For a while I was hoping Ray would make a push but I haven’t liked what I’ve seen when I’m actually up late enough to watch them.   

Two of my good friends ended up in San Francisco and Oakland years back and they’ve split tickets for the Sharks for years.  They’re watching him day in and day out and Karlsson drives them both nuts being a defensive liability. They’re always texting me that they hope the Sharks don’t spend the cap space necessary to keep him. If the contract is up in the 10+ range, that seems like an old school rangers type move of paying for past performance that we all know and love.

I always thought about taking my daughter, but even if the tickets were free (they were not for me), I didn’t like the idea of paying for that stuff PLUS parking, the inevitable snacks, etc.

How's about him and Dorian? He crapped on Sakic, he was a friend!

I wanted Ray to look into Kadri because he's signed for a few more years, (reasonable $$$) & plays with grit. It would however muck up Center. (Zacha/zajac/Hughes/Nico.

think maybe a righty like Connor Brown, Kapanen, unless Tor. trades Nylander. I'm hoping we get a top 4 D (L or R) and right side fw.

Yeah, I felt pretty bad about putting Bratt in the 'overrated' category, and I think he did make strides this past season, but I think he gets a bit too much credit/hype for such a small sample size.  I definitely think the potential is there though, and it wouldn't take much for him to shed that label in my eyes - another solid season and I'll be fairly convinced that he's not just a flash in the pan.

Completely agree on the other guys in terms of a prove it year - having to pick just one, I went with Wood because he signed that big deal a year ago and he's also a bit older.  I've pretty much given up on Q becoming anything significant, but I think Zacha and McLeod get another year or so each, while Wood basically needs to have an impactful season this year - anything less will be a disappointment.
