Queens NY is tied for the number one place people are moving here from.
I’m one of them also.
This is pretty much the 2:1 pace they’ve been on for the recent while that got them within 4 after being 11 back.
Id take the assets and the cap hit... the Keane trade has shown that if you are smart with your picks you can move them or the player drafted for needed pieces. Kravtsov was never gonna be put into the lineup the first year, I think he thought he was but that was unrealistic given he is a kid coming from a very different style of hockey. I still believe he is a good pick. Anderson burned us with his attitude, one trait I never thought that would be his downfall.
One of the better objective posts I’ve seen. Agreed. Yes he is streaky but I hate when people question his effort. This is same guy who was playing with a blood clot and came back early to help the team.
Did I really just waste 30 seconds of my life reading this? I mean here it is your saying you don’t want to come across skanky or like a horn dog...whatever and than you go do exactly that!!...
How does Strome only have 2 votes?
Stop it...you guarantee Kreider will never play this well again?
Maybe just maybe the “Panarin Effect” which is the long awaited sequel to the the “Butterfly Effect” in which the way the narrative goes, Panarin is so good and talented first of all and has such an influence on how the opposition defends the Rangers, the trickle down effect throughout the rest of the lineup should not be surprising to us here in the fan base but in fact embraced as this just might be the new norm.
Just throwing this out there tho more than likely the reality is somewhere between your theory and mine! If that’s the case, I say we do what needs to be done to sign him.
The fact that busts occur doesn’t mean that the best way to build a team isn’t top 10 draft picks.
How does Panarin have 55? He was extremely sloppy outside his 2 points.
I think you mean it IS the best way to build. It can be when you get a generational type player..McDavid, Crosby, McKinnon. Picking after the obvious guys are gone becomes more of a crapshoot.
Draft picks are great, but at some point, you have your core group and need to fine tune.
That's just not going to happen. We are either going to sign Kreider to an extension or he is going to be traded. This is not the Islanders.
The best way to build a team is through the draft, signing FA's and trades, all of which Gorton has done. Even if we don't pick top 10 that doesn't mean you can't get a very good player. Miller, Chytil, Lundkvist were all in the 20's.
That is what I meant, yes.
And i agree at some point you need the core to move on. I just think we need 1-2 more core pieces. The forward group just does not have the quality and depth throughout like the D does. I’ve said on this board a few times —this is most likely their last sell off (or would be if it was up to me), and next year starts the pedal to the metal.
Pure speculation yet wondering if teams have a concern the Rangers will trade and then resign Kreider in the offseason. Maybe they won’t bother if they believe he’s not signable
Have you seen how Kreider performs in the playoffs?
Guarantee? The numbers he is on pace for are not really all that much different than then numbers he put up his entire career.
If he is traded then he isn’t coming back, it usually never happens. However a few years back Arizona tradeed a rental for a first rounder then resigned that player but I forget their name lol
I’m throwing ideas at a wall at this point.
But yeah, it rarely happens even across other sports where you trade a rental, but then resign him after the season ends.
It did happen with the Yankees recently a couple of years ago where they traded Chapman when he was a rental, but then resigned him after the season ended.
Yes, he will be a great goalie with structure. Even if they allowed the chances, they still held their positions. It's not the "hanging out to dry" crap we saw earlier this season. It's different. He isn't getting bombarded. He still has to shine, but it's not like he's under siege. That's the difference.
Or are you telling me Shestyerkin is soo much better than both Hank and Georgiev? I think not.
Cool news flash. Do you think the players agree? Because that was the basis discussion. Also spare everyone you're guarantee, it means nothing to the rational thinker.
That’s fine. I would love for that to happen it just is rare
That’s it thanks
