  1. bull dog line on

    so reading between the lines with what Sather had to say. Boyle is gone. Moore is gone. would like to keep Pouliot at the Rangers price. not expecting to able to keep Stralman. going to play hardball with Kreider. not going to break the bank for Zucc.

  2. Paul in sunrise on

    If rangers retain stralman, several kids will have to make team because cap crunch. Don’t expect rangers to but UFA until august. No cap space if retain stralman because the prices even reasonable ones for the RFAs will squeeze other UFA out. If no stralman than who. They say the devil you know is better.

    Meanwhile if and when stralman and Boyle break the bank will anyone doubt that they should call john tortarella and thank him for their big contract. I will give the man credit. He turned some guys into real valuable pieces. Gave them a role and taught them how to defend. Guys like cally girardi prust already got paid and are all torts guys. Now stralman and Boyle. Give credit.

  3. No chance the Rangers bring back Stralman at this point and it might be a blessing in disguise. He was very good don’t get me wrong, but there is definitely a strong chance 2013-2014 was the best season he’ll ever have.

    Interesting to see what the Rangers do going forward as it looks like Moore, Boyle and Stralman are all heading out of town.

  4. This line-up has me pretty excited. i will get a chance to see Buchnevich, Duclair, Iverson, Skjei…

    It should be pretty enlightening on these prospects I have heard so much about but never seen.

    That extra two months of Rangers hockey was awesome… here we go again.

  5. Paul in sunrise on

    I think the RFAs all come back. Kreider being signed before camp is biggest question. Arbitration eligible guys will be in camp under contract one way or another. For all of us wanting to see guys like Lindberg and Kristo and Haggerty – on top of guys like JT and Fast – this is likely the year. 14-15 will be a growing pains year with good potential. Potential every year with Hank.

  6. Paul in sunrise on

    Defense more important in my opinion. Can sign stralman for like $4.5 per and still keep RFAs but fourth line will be kids, which is fine by me. No d moops no Boyle. Carcillo and two kids. Fine by me. Defense as we all know makes up for short comings. But I am also confident Slats will just pick up another junker off the heap aka stralman 2.0 this year for cheap. He seems to find or try to find those guys.
