    He plays for the Rangers AHL affilates (WolfPack). We got him for Dupuis.

    You've seen him play regularly?

    What do you remember about his hitting?

    Dupuis + 3rd.

    Who did ATL pick with the 3rd?

    It went to Pitt and they got Robert Bortuzzo.

    Ranger fans just look at the trade as:
    Dominic Moore -> Adam Hall -> Pascal Dupuis -> Alex Bourret.

    I know and it was a great deal for us... But it was not Dupuis for Bourret. It was Dupuis + "Bortuzzo" for Bourret.

    .

    great deal for the Rangers.

    Bourret was the youngest player in the AHL last year and notched 50 points,

    11 points in 7 PO games to top off his first and VERY successful professional season..

    Shhh, don't tell that to Atlanta fans. He is a fat, lazy marginal prospect, remember? :sarcasm:

    I believe there were a few younger players that played in the AHL last year too, but he was among the youngest.

    It's not the Atlanta fans that think that...it's the Atlanta GM.
    In a brief burst of panic last year, Waddell traded the team's future for "4 and out" in the first round. :shakehead

    Not sure about other players, but Kalus didn't turn 20 until about a month ago, Bourret was 20 by about his 2nd AHL game.

    Did Kalus start the season in the AHL? If not I know Bergfors did. Anyway to stay on topic, I expect Bourret to have a monster AHL season.

    Just to settle this:

    Nicklas Bergfors
    DOB: March 7, 1987
    First game this season: October 7
    Age as of first game this season: 19 years, 7 months, 0 days

    Peter Kalus
    DOB: June 29, 1987
    First game this season: October 7
    Age as of first game this season: 19 years, 3 months, 8 days

    Alex Bourret
    DOB: October 5th, 1986
    First game this season: October 7
    Age as of first game this season: 20 years, 0 months, 2 days

    So Petr Kalus was the youngest (of those 3, at least).

    One of the biggest rip-offs in recent memory. AND we swept the team we ripped off.

    Great trade, Slats. Now we have to find the next team to rip off for a mediocre 3rd liner.

    i don't think it was just the gm, a lot of atlanta posters were ripping him saying he was lazy and had a bad attitude, so really, he just went to a organization that had given him 1000000 times the team and fan support

    Well, Atlanta re-signed Dupuis (2 year deal I think) so they still have something from the trade. But I'd trade a marginal 3rd line player for a first round pick only a couple years removed from his draft just about anyday.

    Same here. Dupuis was a redundant player in our organization. And we got a tremendous prospect for a marginal player. Where does that ever happen outside of EA Sports games?

    Atlanta is a poorly run team with a manager without a clue in what to do. He went for broke and got swept. I kind of feel bad for them.

    I kind of feel bad for anyone with 20,000 posts on an Internet bulletin board...

    And you might want to wait until Bourret hits the NHL before you sing his praises.

    If he was such a "tremendous prospect" you would be penciling him in your lineup next year, instead of your 1st round pick from this years draft.

    Bourret is a prospect, he just is never as good as the other ones you have. He moved very quickly down the Thrashers F prospects list....he is already doing the same on the Rangers F prospects list....and soon he will do the same when the Rangers trade him somewhere else.

    Actually, we don't like to rush our prospects here in New York and we have enough depth to not even need to think about it.

    I know you don't like him as a prospect, but that first quote is a bit silly, no? I mean, he's obviously a crappy prospect if he's not on our team. That's basically what you said.

    And I'm so glad that you think he's already fallen in our eyes! Hardly. And that's a quite laughable statement if you think about it. The guy we picked this year is the 4th best player (around there, anyway) in the draft and a tremendous talent. It's not a slight to Bourret at all to be below Cherepanov. And it's pretty silly for you to bash him because of it.

    Just bashing for the sake of bashing, I guess.

    I'm not sure where you got that idea from: you're the first person I've ever heard say that... Bourret came in and looked great on the Pack, and no-one expected him to challenge for a roster spot on the Rangers this coming year.

    Agreed. He was fantastic in Hartford. Absolutely FANTASTIC. I couldn't have been happier with just how damn good he was. And he was incredible in the playoffs. Hitting everything, showing incredible scoring abilities, etc.

    The guy is the full package.

    He's obviously a different player here than he was in Atlanta. And its likely the coaching staff change, IMO. If he was crappy in Chicago, I would think it's the Wolves coaching staff that wasn't using him right or giving him the surroundings and motivation that he needed to actually perform up to par.

    I'm pretty thankful that Hartford is run so damn well and hopefully with Schoney moving up to the Rangers Asst. GM position it will run as well as it has with him there.

    As long as Bourret continues to play as good as he did for Hartford when he got there, he should round out to be a nice 1st or 2nd line player.

    im going to guess hes going to become a 60-70 pt 2nd liner if he pans out. He'll probably be at the top of the list to take shannahan's spot next year.
