Probably mentioned already, but Girardi played 6 years for the NYRs before McDonagh showed up
some of my fondest memories are watching Staal and Girardi shut down top lines in their prime.
and now memories of Staal and Girardi is this
Or at least make it a 50/50 tie
Where else would you find a gem?!
You make a good point.
Some people would criticize a cure for cancer, after all it will lead to over population.
Can't me mad at a dart throw and worry about using a contract on him when the Rangers are going to dump like 10 guys from the minors this year via not giving RFA's a QO or others leaving as a Group 6 UFA for a chance somewhere else.
I never said I followed his career. But from what I’ve seen and read, especially from his draft year, concerns me. His development has been a roller coaster. You haven’t addressed one of my points. You just say I don’t know shit about him. Also, when I say I know what I’m talking about, I don’t mean it in a professional way. I mean that I spend a lot of time analyzing prospects for free, because I like to do that. Sorry if a meme and my opinion upset you? Lmao bro read what experts said about him in his draft year. It’s not good. I’m not mad at this signing, but it’s not a good one imo. Hope I’m wrong.
Do you even read what I write? Or do you just create a straw man for everything? I already admitted I was wrong about Girardi. I said he wasn’t an impact player for most of his career. Still a good signing nonetheless. Hell, even Lettieri I consider a good signing. But I already said I was wrong and that Girardi was an impact player. I was only about 10 when he broke into the league and I guess I don’t remember much.
If someone gives you a free phone, do you complain that it takes up space in your pocket?
Not a bad analogy but yes, if it’s a flip phone and I’m only allowed to carry one phone. I won’t complain but I’d rather want to save the space for an iPhone.
What if there won't be an iPhone available, but only old Samsung slide and flip-phones? You're basically complaining about a roster spot in case some flashy future superstar becomes available? That's not happening this summer
Complaining about an undrafted free agent taking up a roster spot, when we have 5-10 players leaving this summer, is really something.
Well I’m not really complaining. My first post was “meh.” It may seem like I was complaining because I was defending myself from about 17 posters. There were also 2-3 different topics. Also, I didn’t realize we had that many players leaving. I just don’t want another Leedahl or Nell situation (I know those situations are not that big of a deal but still). And it’s not like I’m furious. Also, when did I say I expected a superstar prospect? You and a few other posters do this all the time. Straw man after straw man. Do you think I’m stupid? Obviously there aren’t many great UDFA prospects available. I just thought there were better ones like the one the Penguins got (and no, not because it’s the Penguins) and a few others I read about. But also I understand it takes two parties to come to a deal. Besides, one or two people being meh about this signing is not a big deal. There are zero fans that think signings like these are bad. It’s a free asset. I’m not mad about that. But at the same time, we shouldn’t just give any player a contract when there may be slightly better options available and a limited number of spots. But again, it’s not a big deal and I know it’s possible that Gorton probably tried signing other prospects.
He'll take the spot of a Gropp/Leedahl/Fontaine/O'Regan/Lettieri. No biggie.
Jimmy Vesey 2.0 but a better player. makes the team out of camp. Gut feeling
I want Zach Morris brick phone dammit.
No, the K is silent and the Game of Thrones character is named Hodor, not Khodor.
If you think Khodorenko is better than Vesey straight out of college, you'll be disappointed
Vesey was 2 years older when he finished college. And he lacked hockey IQ.
"Hockey IQ" is such a meaningless buzzword.
This is a very meh player
cull out the gropps. Add some new stuff and see what happens.
move seen him play. He’s a AAAA guy
but he’s a centerman
if he is an AAAA guy why not sign him to an AHL contract. Rangers see something in him that is more than that.
It's a wait and see. Best case scenario Khodarenko becomes a gritty two way 3rd/4th liner who kills penalties, hits, takes face-offs and contributes points now and again. It will probably take at least a year or two for him to get there.
It's not that Vesey has bad hockey IQ so much as he can't process the game fast enough for his level of skills which are overall pretty decent. Jimmy Vesey was a Hobey Baker winner. Sometimes that step to the next level goes seamlessly like with Fox--much more often it doesn't. We see this from Europe, College, Junior to the AHL that some players make the jump and some don't and then again from the AHL to the NHL. There are also surprises--guys you don't think are going to make the jump well but they do and guys you're really sure about that don't.
imagine if the Rangers signed JAM to a contract. he could have gotten a chance here but choose to sign elsewhere. i hate these AHL contracts because other teams take notice and up the contract to NHL to get their guy.
