    Worst thing to do though would be to hold onto Kreider but not sign him and get like a 3rd round pick for his rights before the draft

    Gotta make that decision one way or the other

    e: that said, kinda insane that they could be right there for the playoffs. I know this team has a good amount of talent but it's taken them quite awhile to start putting it together. I guess my big hope is that whatever they do this deadline and offseason, we don't start next season having to wait 2/3rds of the season for them to put it together again and be just on the outside looking in again

    I never said we should do that. I simply have confidence in this team and granted we can resign Kreider before Monday

    I believe that Gorton has a much clear eyed, cold hearted view. I also believe that nothing is happening by chance. He has weighed the odds and will do what he feels is best, no matter what anguish or joy it causes fans.

    Yeah I didn't mean to insinuate you were saying that, more just adding to the idea of what you were saying

    If that's the case, Hank should be the first guy he's looking to move.

    The Blackhawk fans last night seriously think Dach will be better than Kakko, which is fine, but it's one year. They're 18.

    Looking to move and able to move are two completely different things. Hank goes nowhere if he doesn't want to.

    Who's to say he hasn't? If Hank doesn't want to go, that's it.

    What's Hank take on this (full NMC)? And what's the interest level for him (probably minimal)?

    Must be nice to spend most of the season with Debrincat/Strome/Kane. Dach and Hughes get an absurd amount of O-zone starts. Probably one of my biggest gripes with Quinn is that Kakko gets evenly distributed zone starts.

    They were comparing PP points (2 for Dach, I believe) compared to 12 for Kakko. Kakko has played third line with another 20 year old and Di Guiseppe, and he's been on line four. Thre's so much more that goes into it. It's like the Isles fans a couple weeks back on their board saying, "is it just me or does Kakko look incredibly underwhelming for a no.2 pick."

    Kakko has been steadily getting better every night, love or hate Quinn but this process has gotten him to this point.

    Yeah I'm not expecting magically huge strides in the middle of a long season.

    The offseason is where I'm really hoping he'll take time to train and work on his skating, ready to come back and play at an NHL pace.

    As for playoff push- there's a lot of 4 point games coming up against Philadelphia.

    Yeah I remember that goal and the Graves' slash that both derailed that season/series. Blah 91-92 was a funner season to watch than 94 and it sucks they couldn't pull it out. I knew about the five 30 goal scorers that year. Also Graves, who finished with 26 goals that season scored at a essentially a 40 goal pace over the last half of the season after struggling to start his first year with the Rangers.

    The Rangers actually had three 30 goal scorers the following year as well (the disastrous 92-93 season). Gartner, Graves, and Amonte.

    RW = Regulation Wins for those not picking it up. It's funny because last year, we saw a lot of posters saying how the Rangers were really a bottom three team in the league due to being last in ROW and were higher up in the standings due to luck/"the loser point". This year has been the opposite.

    Based on previous comments it seems he isn't content with his legacy and his main priority is being able to say he spent his entire career with one team and retiring a Ranger is more important than Cup chasing in another city. But who knows, that might have changed based on recent developments.

    It's one thing to say it. Retiring a career Ranger sounds good on paper but now he is faced with the reality of riding out his contract from the bench and even press box.

    Knowing how competitive he is that has to be torture. This 3 man rotation has thrown his entire routine into flux. If you know anything about hockey player and even more so goalies they live and breath by their routines.

    Think about what that means for practice. For what 15 years the entire teams focus was on his game day preparation, now I think on most days he is treated like a journeyman AHL'er and skates before the team even practices.

    In that case maybe in the near future, no way in the later years after Kakko has developed further.

    Here is the thing. If we resign Kreider, chances are we don't have the money to resign Mika when the time comes.

    Are Blackhawks fans basing this off of this one game?

    Because if they are, they're blind.

    Henke having a full on NTC clouds that scenario. Then there is the rather tricky issue of him being one of the most important players in your franchise history.

    Having at least $20 million available at the time won’t allow for the Rangers to give Mika a $4 million raise?

    Remember when Prucha was outscoring Crosby early in their respective rookie seasons? Good times.
