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

    That’s pretty strong stuff coming from a team. Big fine incoming.

    Can’t ever remember seeing an official team statement worded that strongly.

    If only this organization had as much pushback on the ice as it does in this published statement...

    If the Rangers ever end up with a Wilson like player in the future that letter is not going to be a good look for them.

    And really what is with the letters and public announcements? Just do stuff. No one needs a letter to know they are rebuilding, or a press conference about their actions with a player, or about this, again, just do stuff.

    Exactly. Zip your yap JD, put down the whine, and put a player on the ice tomm night to represent your team and organizations discontent.

    Do we own the top 3 most dramatic stories of the year? Tony D, Panarin Russia scandal, speaking out against the league.

    Basically telling the NHL that they are big meanies for allowing the Ranger Organization to get stuffed in a locker.

    I wish we went retribution instead of this, but this is a bold move by JD.

    I just wish he did it at a podium, and went a little ad libbed as well.

    But it just does not make any sense to appeal to the public here.

    If they want to make a stink with the other owners or Bettman behind the scenes, fine.

    Announcing a rebuild then entering the seller market was a odd move too.

    Similar with ADA and never gonna play again for us, just do it and say the general stuff like he knows what he did or whatever.

    Then this too, just suck it up, figure it out internally and complain above this level behind the scenes.

    Still have a sour taste in my mouth when I remember that we signed Brashear after he injured Betts.

    He was another one that robbed the Rangers of a check.

    We signed Dan Carcillo after he played Whack A Mole with Marion Gaboriks face.

    Would love to go after Matt Tkachuk if CGY is serious about moving him.

    Also, probably a long shot, but could there be something around a Strome-Greenway swap? MIN needs centres like a fish needs water at the moment.

    Edit: Scratch the Tkachuk idea actually - thought he was a centre for some reason. Greenway I'd still take a flyer on though if possible.

    Smith will have a ceremonial fight at the opening faceoff, lose, and everyone will gush over "the code". That'll be the extent of the response.

    Really just don't want to see any reactionary trades where we give up massive skill to add some form of toughness. Have a weird feeling this will lead to a trade with us giving up Kravtsov, Nils, KK, etc. to add that type of element.

    Goons and one-dimensional players are not needed. We need guys that push back. Don't fight Wilson. Go hit the other team's stars. If everyone is doing it, Wilson starting a single fight with a player means nothing. Anybody can throw a hit, finish a check, play with some fire, but not everyone will. You can't have a team where 2-3 guys are expected to be physical. It has to be a team identity. Even if they aren't throwing hits, they should be a pain to play against because they fight through everything. Instead, it sometimes looks like a failed attempt at being Harlem Globetrotters.
    Skill is great, but it has to be mixed with focused determination and a mentality that everyone has each other's back. Not a single goon needed for that.

    It is kind of funny to remember that this league had an instantaneous rule to prevent Avery from looking Brodeur in the eye while he made saves.

    The whole league was watching for this punishment and they didn't even hit the board with the low estimates.

    A trade would be fine. "Massive" skill without other stuff is kinda pedestrian overall, as we have seen this year. Plus dealing someone really good ensures you don't get a plug. Try to fix this in FA and you're gonna get plugs.

    Would also send a message to the guys remaining on the roster. Good. Wake em up.

    Agreed. Every major corporation has been doing it the last few years. I'm surprised more teams don't do it.

    He does. Cost is really the determinant. He can probably get 3M on the market. Maybe not with flat cap. If we could get him at 2.25 I’d say yes for sure. Even a bit more is steep but potentially worth it. But one useful player in his ilk is a start, not a solution. Team identity needs a shake. We need 2-3 guys like that.
