    All. This is the roster building thread, not the Tom Wilson thread. Get back on topic.

    I prefer to target forwards. That way if they get a misconduct you aren't down to five defensemen for awhile.

    Until such time that they change the "profile" of the guys they target via any method of player acquisition, what we have is what we will have.

    Trouba, Lindgren, Cuylle is not enough.

    Caps running out of patience with Kuznetsov per Friedman. That'd be a wild get in the off season.

    Just maybe he's protecting an elite player and it's a shoulder thing? More logical, no?

    "Get the word out, we don't like the little shit, either." Given the actual subject....

    No clue... I mean, you chat with the guy, or? I've heard him do NOTHING BUT praise everyone (even least praiseworthy).

    It's no worth it to pretend he's part of the problem anymore.

    He'll be back in Russia soon at this rate. Seems like he has a lot of issues.

    I saw that too. Wouldn’t let Igor move. It wasn’t overly aggressive but that guy gets removed from the crease by any other team.

    Same, but he's actually a good player as well as being a giant. Might not be the worst idea to push Miller down to the 3rd pairing next season.

    He doesn't strike me as a good communicator, which is kind of a significant flaw for a head coach. If you watch those "Film Room" segments he has done and contrast it with something like...Jack Han's article on Fox....it isn't really a flattering comparison for Quinn. Thinking of all those quotes through the year where all you get are platitudes about "intentions" and "East-West" that often lack specifics.

    Maybe that's his approach in front of the media and it's a different story behind closed doors. If I'm being generous maybe it's a gamesmanship thing. But then you have that quote about the DeAngelo...the "haven't discussed in depth what the plan is" with Kravtsov when he had been there over the week...and I'm not sure it's gamesmanship.

    @Pawnee Rangers ha I need a hobby because I wanted the team to respond to their star player getting body slammed head first?

    More pathetic soft mentality. Some of this fan base is as bad as this team and coach. It makes sense. Soft breeds soft. Losing breeds losing.

    Did I say send out Fox or Kravtsov or Kakko? Like can you be more out of touch and lame about this? They had 17 other skaters. Smith. Blackwell. Rooney. Thats what these guys are for. Even Gauthier. Go stick up for yourselves. Stop being so pathetic. You got bullied by the Islanders twice and then the Caps. Its unacceptable.

    Go listen to what Rupp is saying on SiriusXM. Anyone can step up and respond. Its a team mentality. Go after Backstrom. Go after Carlson. Finish every check. Hit everything and everyone. Crash the net.

    They coasted the rest of that game.

    It is HUGE factor knowing some body has your back...HUGE !!! If there is no is isolation required then sign & call up both Gallant brothers from the AHL ....Alex and Brett for the next 3 games . Who cares if we lose the games....they will hold their own against Wilson....they are pure goons ready to be hired . Brett lost his job to Ross the Boss on Long Island ......just 3 games LOL.....add some havoc and sign a couple for next year that can skate some and fight some for short term until we have some farm kids ready that will play big for us .....nobody wants a goon for 10 years that can't play. Just set the tone for next year.....a trial run of sorts .

    Not one of the guys you've mentioned outside of maybe Smith is remotely equipped to take on Wilson. Yet I'm the lame and delusional one. Got it.

    We have enough kids that going without one forward could be accomplished easily enough if that happened . Dress an extra Dman .

    Who cares if they are equipped or not? Thats, again, pathetic. Its not about “winning” a fight, its about having some balls, having a PULSE, and responding to your star player getting dangerously body slammed to the ice and then sat on. Like I said, some of this fan base is just as soft as the team. Its likely many never played this sport or any other competitively beyond the age of 10. Wilson was back out there in the 3rd and no one went near him. Blackwell was the only one and quite frankly Wilson was a little bit off balance when he hit him making it look more impactful. They shouldve been hitting him every chance they could. They shoulve been hitting Backstrom every chance they could. Have some f***ing self respect. Starts from the coach down. Season is over, go out and make a statement.

    I don’t think a player’s lower body would leave in one piece if Billy Smith was in net. He’d use his stick like a whip. Players were scared to go near him.

    LMAO.....the fine they will receive would have covered the pro rated money they would have to pay for the two Gallant brothers/yes PURE GOONS from the AHL....those two boys would love to be on the same NHL club for 3 games......we sure missed out on a real treat......think Sutter like MAYHEM !!! They would have had one whack of fun......and they actually LOVE to fight ....they really do !!! Oh well.....I wonder who Wilson targets on Wednesday night ...Fox ? Kravs ? Jones ? Lafreniere ?

    JD with a zinger, but I would've preferred him at the podium saying this, with the Rangers logo in the background.

    Great. Why don't we grow a set. Police ourselves. That makes me embarrassed to be a Ranger fan.

    The Rangers have an opportunity to trade for a 3rd defenseman or 7th forward to upgrade their expansion protection list.

    Just read a story about the Flames and this issue. They are in a jam. Either a deal with Seattle or role the dice on Giordano. For one year, I’d be all over this.
