I'd wager that Fast doesn't return next season. DeAngelo signed to a bridge deal. Lemieux will back on another one year deal.
Strome is the only wild card. I don't think the Rangers will be keen to lock him up long term unless he leaves lots of money on the table.
As much as I pine for a goal scoring forward with a 1st this year, I think the Rangers could stand to take another center. If the Rangers are picking, say, #12 and #23, snagging Jake Sanderson and Jacob Perrault with those picks would be an absolute coup.
Problem is I think that Sanderson goes top 10 and maybe even gets close to a top 5 pick. More likely picks at 12 are Holloway (blegh), Zary (ok), Jarvis (ok), or Quinn (sure).
On a complete random note, it would not shock me one bit to see Matthew Robertson get a cup of coffee with the big club, and maybe even stick if he does well. I know the Rangers are really happy with his development in the past year. Could be a solution to put next to Trouba? We'll see.
Let the Why a Duck jokes commence.
He's right you know, you've gotta take up the tacks before you take up the carpet
If only we drafted Necas or Suzuki instead of Andersson Maybe even Vilardi who most of us wanted.
From what I remember, almost everyone wanted Mittelstadt
I wanted Vilardi, Liljegren or Brannstrom at 7, and Yammamoto at 21. But I knew all 4 had issues, and at least one would've been a big reach at the time (Brannstrom)
We already have room for that. Even if we have to walk away from Fast it doesn't make sense to waste an asset to get rid of Smith.
Yeah, most people around here wanted Mittelstadt or Vilardi as they were the highest rank guys by consensus on the board at the time.
However, I believe there was talk that Suzuki was the next guy on the Rangers list had they not gone with Andersson. I also remember people around here criticizing them for having him that high.
If Arizona hadn't traded the pick, they would have taken Suzuki.
Vilardi played a little this season late with the Kings. 7 points in 10 games.
No shock that Beleskey or Haley weren’t invited to camp. The org has been done with Beleskey for seasons now, despite the fact that he showed some value. I was surprised that Boo wasn’t invited. Nothing has come out about it since.
Hindsight 20/20 but if we couldn’t trade up two spots for Pettersson, we should have traded down and taken Rob Thomas.
Would St Louis have traded us 20 and 31 for 7? Would much rather have Thomas and Kostin than Andersson right now.
Did they? Was it Poster PB?
And it wasn't just talk, there was a list of players that McKenzie put out after the Stepan trade that had Pettersson, Glass, Lias and Suzuki in that order. Now obviously this isn't how they had them ranked overall, but in terms of guys who could/would be there at 7.
Suzuki would not have gotten the level of backlash that the Lias pick did, thats for sure. He was the guy I wanted and there were a few of us on that boat.
6 and change...5ish....not happening....right on
Agree, anyone have some info on why not Boo? Seemed to be a reasonable choice. Bern still has him as 1C.
Now that we know #7 was stinky, probably 15 deals we could have made. Just about Everyone tends to look for a trade up as a default setting.
we would have then taken lias at 20
Haley is still on IR. He probably would have been on the team if he was healthy
Doubt it’s Kravtsov. They’ll slot Fogerty on the 4rh and bump Gauthier up I would think.
Vince agrees with you. I think I do too. I'd be shocked if Quinn entrusted Kravstov over Gauthier with third line minutes in the playoffs. And Fogarty is a better fit for the fourth line.
NYR Twitter is, as I thought they would, losing their shit about Fogarty possibly being in over Kravtsov.
