    Josh, perhaps you should have found someone with a bit more experience. After all, you are only 26.

  2. I wouldnt be completely opposed to Shawn Thornton if they have no plans for Carcillo and are looking to part ways with Dorsett.

    Also im in the minority camp of not being against Jumbo Joe. If he was an UFA id be fully on board but im still not against him. He and Nash have played together many a times so if Nash isnt going anywhere….

  3. I’m a bit wary of guys who have an unusually good season just before free-agency and who are looking for large bucks and years, years, years.

    I think Stastny is more a product of getting to play with who he played with in the role he was playing, rather than the ocntract year incentive.

  5. Gravy – Did you know. That 3 “Sioux” alums will be on the cup this year. Greene – past Captain, Gasparini-scout (2nd time), Kvitne-Team Doctor. Who knew.

    Just saying, Rangers will need Kristo, if they want to win a cup next year :)

  6. *Sather to Stralman*: “You think you’re too cool for school. But I got news for you, Walter Cronkite. You’re not.”

    Stralman to Sather: “I guess what I’m trying to say is you can derelick my balls.”

  8. Thornton still a 70-point guy, probably (65 assists this year, only 11 goals). Turns 35 in a couple of weeks. Makes $7M next season and not sure they can fit that in unless they let almost all their UFA guys go. Gonna cost you at least Stepan if not Kreider in a trade.

  9. Stralman put up basically a career low in points and was fairly average defensively for most of the season. He excelled in the postseason but it’s asking a whole lot to say this guy banked his chances on landing a large contract by waiting until mid-April to step up.

    First draw, first 0-0 game, most boring game of the world cup, even leaving out the goals.

  11. Paul Stastny would be far and away the best center on the Rangers. If you can find someone better out there, by all means, let Glen know about him.

    Give me a guy who plays his best hockey in the spring over a guy who does it in the fall.

  13. I agree with you, Doodie. Just pointing out that coos’ point is, not surprisingly, ludicrous.

  14. Yes, i was going under the assumption that it’ll cost us Stepan. Not ready to give up Kreider for him though. If they can “steal” him for Stepan and 2 AHLers i’d do it.

  15. The only San Jose Sharks I would consider are: Couture, Vlasic and *Pavelski*

    None are available.

  16. Lloyd, Village Idiot position being advertised on Craig’s List. Get involved.

  17. Doodie he’s a RFO, they would have to sign him first, before they trade him.

    Then flip him to the Jets, for Kane :)

    I’d be ok with that!!!

  18. doesn’t surprise me in the least that your daily job search would include “village idiot” positions, nor am I surprised you are seeking employment on Craig’s List

  19. Kreider-Stepan-Kristo that will be our #2 line next year, which will be the #1 line in scoring.

    Nash- ? – MSL – put your Richie Rich over the hill player.

  20. I feel like different players from different times are being combined in deals here

    at least I hope so because I can’t believe anyone would want to trade for Joe Thornton

  21. I don’t think Stepan’s a No. 1, but I don’t think I’m giving up a 24-year-old No. 2 for a 35-year-old No. 1.

  22. Let me ask another way. So, we’re trading almost $5M in cap space, plus two minor leaguers (which they have few to spare) for 20 more points, and it’s a steal?

  23. Coos: You got a job on Craigslist? Cool. Nice job, buddy. I have only gotten some “part time” work. Hourly if you will.

  24. I don’t even really like Stepan but the notion of trading him for Joe Thornton and three years of his nearly $7 million cap hit is insane.

  25. That’s really fair. If it’s Stepan and say Kristo and Lindberg i dont do it. And it’s going to be more than that. I was just saying hypothetically. We’re more in a win now mode and personally i dont think Stepan is going to be getting any better. If i move him i move him for someone like Thornton. Sharks need help at C right?

  26. I move couches. Laugh if you will, but there’s a lot of loose change down there in those things.

  27. Do you think it would be possible for our guys who are UFAs to stay at a discount knowing that the team is close to championship caliber? They can appeal to them that way and maybe get a hometown discount?

  28. Stepan is a better player than Thornton is right now. Stepan will be 24 at the start of next season while Thornton will be 35. Stepan is a $3 million hit for another year. Thornton is a nearly $7 million hit for the next 3 years.

    No thanks.

  29. I’m sure none of us that want to run Nash out of town are the same guys that wanted to run Gabby out.

  30. Do you do it with clothes on, Coos? I have seen some, well, interesting services for moving on Craigslist…

  31. Win now! Dolan fills the seats no matter. We can’t wait another ten years. Grab it when it’s within reach!

  32. The only person on the planet who may be a bigger loser than Rick Nash is Joe Thornton. Try again Ranger fans.
