    Power forwards at 7 years are scary and 60 days ago I would have said no way. Now he will get it.

    If nothing else, the Rangers having a realistic shot at the playoffs could drive Kreider's price up. Because that makes it that much more believable they'll keep him if they don't get what they want, thus, the offers could easily get bigger.

    blueshirts should extend him. May become a big mistake if they don't. The guy is a physical freak that could have 4-5 years of prime time power forward seasons. Not sure if magic prospects can beat that. Figure out the cap issues in the summer. The rangers always do anyway....

    I would love it if the Rangers can make the playoffs. If anything, if they are realistically close enough by deadline (win the next 3 of 4). They can at least tell teams that they need a really good offer or they will keep him for the playoff run.

    Yes, I would love a top 7 draft pick but I also think the team needs a winning mentality. Igor was named the starter and you have young guys all over the lineup. If they can push for a playoff spot while keeping Kreider, it will be a huge momentum boost for development next year (Even if it costs us not getting a first in the late 20s by not trading Kreider).

    rushing to get that “winning mentality” at the expense of the rebuild isn’t going to lead to much winning when it matters most.

    Number of teams you have to pass is more important that points back.

    They would have to pass Florida, Carolina and Columbus.

    I really dont want a play off spot. We are not ready yet. Making the play offs would be a major blow for us as we will struggle to re-sign Kreider so losing good assets we could get from him as well as missing out on a top 10 pick is crucial to finishing to rebuild.

    Seven points out with a month and half of season left IS close.

    They can probably catch Columbus due to their injuries but there is no reason 3 of Philly, Carolina, Toronto, and Florida will fall off their pace enough for New York to pass them and that's what it would take. 3 of those 4 have to falter.

    Obviously the odds are against it, but their chances are a lot better today than they were a few weeks ago.

    We're 7 points back, but we have 1 or 2 games in hand on many of the teams we are chasing, and there are plenty of divisional games left.

    Kreider will get the Rangers a first (20 to 31), and a grade A prospect.

    The Rangers have 3 games remaining against Philly, with back to back games at the end of the month. If the Rangers can win both of those games and hold serve in the others, it's a completely different story.

    Carolina is 5 points ahead of the Rangers with the same number of games played. Florida is 2 points ahead, with the same number of games played. Toronto is 4 points ahead, but the Rangers have a game in hand.

    Over the last 10 games, the Rangers have a better record than all those teams except Philly.

    Not good enough. They'll resign him soon.

    Fir a rebuilding team, it would be going backwards to resign Kreider now. Trade him for futures and resign him in the summer.
    And for a rental, that’s a very good return. There could be a conditional pick attached if he extends with his new team.

    A late 1st round doesn’t do anything for them. Want a guy who can fill into the roster now plus a A+ prospect who is NHL ready by next season.

    Rangers are not going to increase a cup contenders odds of winning the cup by a lot out of the goodness of their hearts.

    If they are going to re-sign him then what is the cost likely to be? Hes 28 years old and has been pretty productive for a lot of his career. He would probably give a little bit of a discount there no? I think it will depend on what the value is that a trade would give them because if they think that's better than re-signing a 28 year old player to likely a long term deal then they likely go that route. Although I feel like he could be a guy that will want to stay there so maybe they wont trade him. Could be there best captain.

    Florida and Columbus are not the scary teams to pass. One of Carolina or Philadelphia seems to be the harder path.

    Do they get nothing, and Kreider leaves as a UFA? Or they resign Kreider, and continue losing?
