Hey wiski - are you sure you've scoured through all of today's posts to make sure you've liked everything that might have been anti-Phaneuf in anyway whatsoever? I think you may have missed one or two.
Suppose Shanny decides this year is on the players and gives Carlyle another go at it...what players do you think they flip to change our culture?
Bozak to make a smart move and send a message, Kessel to send a huge message and decide the course of the team
If the Rangers move Nash, I would still bet on SJS landing him. Probably for a package of Havlat + Kennedy + picks/prospects
@lukethenuke @Cameron19 @wiski We have absolutely nothing anywhere in the system that is even remotely close to being able to step into his role. A trade won't include anyone even close to that quality either. We've seen how the team reacts when he's gone, hurt, or just not playing well. Any of the three spell an absolute disaster.
@Cameron19 @lukethenuke @wiski im watching playoff teams and they dont rely on single guys the way you seem phaneuf is reied on... sure hes on the ice in a lot of situations but the team around him plays like shit also... if thats straightened out and we play a better team game, i dont know what happens... not like phaneuf has top skills anymore...
@lukethenuke @Cameron19 @wiski And we're a long, long way from playing a better team game. I know some people are telling themselves that we just played a better team game last season - but that's a lie, and deep down they know it. Last year was the exact same in terms of being outplayed and out-shot and forcing Dion + Reimer/Bernier to save our asses every single night, all night.
@wiski @Cameron19 @lukethenuke Well, you remember it wrong. After going 7-4-1 to start the season, we went 1-7-3 without him the first month he was out. Then we tread water for a while in December until he returned going only slightly behind 500 for that stretch). Finally, he returned and we went on a tear.
Having said that, Reimer came in and helped that along.
@wiski OMG YES. Pack your bags, Clarkson! Lol.
@Cloud09 They will have aprox. 17M to sign the following:
And two extras
@Cloud09 If I was to guess at prices without too much research, I'd say you're looking at:
Kreider (2.50), Zuccarrello (4.00), Brassard (3.50 - 4.00), Boyle (2.00), Stralman (2.50), J.Moore (1.25), and the rest released.
So just keeping that group puts them basically over the cap, with several spaces left to fill. They could MAYBE hardball Zuc and Kreider into lower deals and save some cap there.
I can't see them buying out Richards after having a bounce back year, and bringing in his buddy St.Louis.
@Murph2417 take it ez murph...
@Murph2417 Safe travels Murph. Good luck on the new adventure.
@Jmessih Later man
So since I couldn't be bothered to watch Pens/Rangers. Is this "Flower" being good or the anemic Rangers' offense failing again?
You know you're lazy when you're eating chicken fingers and want ketchup but are to lazy to go to the fridge. Then you remember there is some packets in your closet in a kitbag. SCORE!
@The_Polish_Cannon We have shitty no name plum sauce
@The_Polish_Cannon Everyone knows chickens don't have fingers
