    Mod edit: Trusted source, but ultimately this entire situation is still largely centered on speculation. Keep that in mind.

    Idk, there is definitely some double entendre to "holding a lead" if you've read a certain blogger lately...

    So, looking forward rather than back, what’s everyone’s prediction for what happens next with this whole mess? My guess is ADA clears waivers and goes to Calgary at $2.35MM retained for Bennett.

    EDIT: make that $2.25MM. Shouldn’t try to do math at 1:00AM.

    It would have been real dumb to bring in a 6'9 mutant who can command a locker room and filled a need on the ice. Glad we dodged that one.

    Tony clears waivers; nobody wants to trade for him even with salary retained; Rangers attempt to mutually terminate Tony's contract; he refuses and sits out two seasons; Gets offers to go to KHL but refuses to go to Russia because, well, it's Russia; Rangers finish 6th in the MassMutual East above Buffalo and New Jersey; Quinn gets fired at the end of the season; Nils earns his spot on the team with a terrific training camp later in the year; Rangers win the stanley cup in 2022

    Is there any strategy behind waiving Tony before trading him, other then just seeing if anyone wants him at his full rate? Does that mean any potential deal will most likely include us retaining salary?

    Chara wasn't stopping the events of yesterday or this season.

    What is the most likely outcome here?
    Is Brooks' scenario of contract termination too extreme?
    I personally think, he just spends a month or so in Hartford getting 30 minutes a night and then comes back to the rangers. DQ needs him for the PP.

    The strategy of waiving him before trading him is by getting an unwanted player out of the locker room and off the team as quickly as possible.

    I'm sure Chara had zero interest in our rebuild. Wouldn't surprise me if he turned down money to play for the Caps. Perfect fit for both sides.

    I think ultimately what the management did is very selfish, stupid and unacceptable. The fans liked ADA, the fans did not know or needed to know any of ADA character issues. It is about the fans first. You don't waive a tradable asset, you suspend him for breaking team policies and you look to trade him and get some value in return to at least save face with the fans. Only an idiot GM would flat out waive a 60 point Dman. Last Dman that produced comparable numbers for Rangers was Leetch 20 years ago.

    Bottom line they messed up and hotheadedly waived him, pretty much destroying his trade value. The management has to be punished for their impulsive decision. I propose the fans should boycott and not watch at least next 3-5 games.

    Also I don't understand why ADA after scoring a ton of points for this coach last season had to fight for his job pretty much starting 1st or 2nd game.

    ADA will thrive in a team that has strong leadership and high level and fair coaching staff.

    Personally I will boycott this team until they hire a very good quality coaching staff. There is no cap on coaching staff, why doesn't one of the wealthiest organization spend more resources in areas where they are not limited like scouts, AHL and NHL coaching staffs, etc.

    Positive thoughts. Good luck, jovan !
    On a side note energy is absorbed and when you put out the good energy everyone wins. Let’s hope this situation turns into a A+ positive ending for all. :5:

    There was no way this was going to stay quiet. If we know anything about it, GMs and the community of players are going to know more. Teams don’t want the headache, especially when the league is pushing for greater diversity and pushes towards acceptance and positivity.

    The Rangers organization is taking volatility out of the locker room to try to regain some semblance of order and to protect their players. If even half of what’s been mentioned is true, and management was aware, it’s not a good look for the organization.

    The NYR organization traded for TDA knowing his history. They worked with him through the various things that have gone on over the last year. There has to be a final straw.

    Sure, it’s unfortunate to lose a offensive defenseman, but there’s a question of ethics here. And maybe his personal life is his personal life, but when it spills into the locker room and into violence, it’s a matter of keeping personnel safe.

    Yes I agree. Even though they may not have liked the return before the altercation, they still could have sold low on him yesterday. Not saying that I would have liked that, but it’s better than losing him for nothing. Maybe the FO thinks that no one will claim him. We’ll get our answer tomorrow. If no team claims him, then we’ll know for sure that we weren’t even going to get a 7th round pick for him.

    It's looking like DeAngelo did get punched.

    I'll post this again, post-game interview with Kreider.

    Notice how he tries to hide his hand. Look at his knuckle, someone/something got punched by him.

    I mean, f*ck this kid if he cracked and acted like a shithead with the team.

    What the actual f*ck is going on in that room?

    we need a real vet in that room. Not Kreider or Troubda. Those two clearly couldn't control a room if their lives depended on it.
    Yikes. Poor Laf, Kakko, Shesty & Miller. Jesus

    It’s all rumors at the moment, so no way of knowing the true who and what.

    But there’s a long history of hazing in the league, and it happens through juniors, too. Some of it’s simple like the rookie doing a few laps himself. I remember the Ducks had Fowler chauffeur Selanne and Getzlaf to a game. But it can obviously get too extreme.

    The Rangers need to make some changes, I think both in terms of staff and players. Maybe I’m wrong, but I hope they’ll actually wake up and realize something is off, and it’s not just COVID.

    This is all to say that I’d be shocked if Tony is claimed, never mind traded for a positive asset.

    No. Already disputed by numerous people. Including super duper insiders.

    Idk he could easily just have red on his hand just bc he just played a hockey game wearing gloves. I know any time I step on the ice I could come off with a bruise or something anywhere on my body without me remembering how it happened. Could be as simple as dry skin in the winter being irritated by sweating in your gloves.
