I'm sick of all those divisional,conference,"arch rivals" crap.

Kenny should explore eastern conference a little bit more and probably pay less than acquiring some western conference big fish via trade.


Hartnell or Lucic would be ungodly awesome. (Not that Ryan wouldn't, mind you.)

Breaking: Columbus and Nashville to merge into one single team to make up for losses.

The CBJ's get a grinder a floater and AHLer and a pick that will be in the end of the draft.

Anisomov has more playoff goals than Nash.


The Nashville Grey Jackets?

Nah those type of players are pure gold and the price would be as high as for Nash.

But hey,maybe Ken should make a brilliant move and send an offer sheet to E.Kane :lol:

Hartnell would cost the farm, I agree. (Then again, he's going to be a UFA next summer.) Lucic, I'm not so sure. He's been on and off the block for the last couple of seasons - if rumors, whispers, rumblings are to be believed.

For Lucic, I can see that, but I don't know about Hartnell.

Philly will probably want to dump some cap space and we could help them out with that. But at the same time I'm not sure Hartnell improves this team to the degree we want it to. I would rather sign Semin and/or Doan and then move Filppula/Franzen for a mid-aged defensive asset.

As someone I know said when I first told them "The Rangers RIPPED off the Jackets and Detroit had the superior offer." Seriously at we know that Holland is at least TRYING to do something!

Geez, makes me wonder what Hollands "Hell of an offer" was...he could have beaten this without blinking...Howsen is an absolute jack wagon... Franzine/Tatr/Mursak/1st destroys what the Rags gave them....Not unless Holland low-balled again....Bring on Ryan! NOT! It aint gonna happen...our roster is set...I believe it now 100%...as much as I like the Tootoo signing, Holland failed this year...FAIL by low-balling!

Holland just cannot let go of Franzilina....God I hate Franzine!

From what I heard it was Flip, Nyquist and a 1st.

Who cares what we offered. Nash is a Ranger end of story. I think Holland offered Dats, Hank and Nick to come out of retirement for one season for Nash. Howson was smart and turned it down lol

The return Columbus got back isn't that horrible. Dubinsky definitely has the tools to score 50 points per year consistently. Won't be a superstar, but I've always liked him. I think he needed a change of scenery. Not sure if Columbus will help, but I guess we'll find out. What does Columbus look like now as far as their potential lineup goes?

It's so laughably awful. The Columbus fan is in for a rough year.

I understand Howson being reluctant to ship Nash to us, but Franzen or Filppula would atleast have helped their team NOW. Anisimov is a depth scorer like Hudler, Dubinsky is a good 3rd liner and there's a reason Erixon has changed teams more times than he's been on the ice in the NHL.

If I was the columbus fan I would have rather gotten a better return and face Nash 6 times a year than to get spare parts and a pick and not see him at all.

Rangers are my pick to win the Presidents/Stanley combo.

That didn't matter. Columbus wouldn't trade with a division rival.

The return isn't that bad as people make it to believe. Erixon is a very good D prospect that has potential to be as good as , for example, T. Enstrom. Dubinsky and Anisimov are hardworking top-9 guys and 1st round pick never hurts. They need a coach like Babcock to make things happen with that roster.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Yep, with Nash and Weber going East, the Eastern Conference only gets stronger. It is odd how the Western teams are willing to shoot the conference in the foot and trade star players to the East. This is a big shift from NCAA style conference loyalty.

Do they not realize that there are a significant number of fans that will come to games just to see whatever big name is in town?


Stars come and go but imo fans come to see known teams with a little bit of history and a winning record.

The Nashville Grey Jackets?


Talk about rebelling right there.

My the Rangers continue to fail to win it all as they find ways to reload till the explode.
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

I head a Nash "sound bite"; he said that he wanted to be part of a "re-build" in Columbus and then he stopped.
Sounded like a strategically planned "burn" to me.

Bobby, on the other hand, is a possibility. If he moves somewhere other than here, I'll start getting irritated.
