2014-15 Prediction Series

Poll Series Information:

That’s right, by no popular demand, the most exciting Poll Series is back! This year we have another fantastic series of obscure, yet meaningful, polls. Each day, from now until puck drop, we will bring a new poll to test your random prediction abilities to show if you Bleed Blue. Additionally, we have some outstanding polls from previous seasons including “Lundqvist Death Stares” and “Who fights first: Del Zotto or Stepan”.

Points will be accumulated when the poll question has been answered. Value of question and answer vary based on poll participants, number of options, number of games played, and accuracy. Once the season is over, we will award a winner. All winners will be verified using a neutral third party.

To be eligible, poll bids MUST be registered prior to the puck drop of the Rangers season opener on Thursday, October 9, 2014 unless otherwise specified in that poll. Winner(s) are chosen based on correct poll voting, NOT in-thread predictions unless otherwise specified. Some polls may require additional information to be submitted in the thread, but only users with the correct poll option chosen will be eligible in such polls.

6.) First Trade Acquisition - position

We know we'll be seeing Stogie Sather making some moves at some point in the season. Perhaps an injury, a binge and rehab, underperforming Zuccarello or maybe ebola... But something will happen to prompt a trade for a legitimate NHL player to wear the Rangers sweater.

What will be the primary position of that player?
Acquired player must play a minimum of 10 games for the Rangers in a primary position. Any acquired player that is sent to Hartford is disqualified. Call ups are excluded. If I like a player picked up off waivers, I may consider, but doubtful.
For an extra 10 points - name the specific player. 1 vote per poster.

Center, blockbuster for Joe Thornton involving Klein, Brassard and a prospect. Chaos ensues.

10-07-2014, 10:04 AM
It's going to be a center - but one of those tweener types.

Also - Josh - Canadian spelling much? :D

Cash or Czech?

Center for sure. Slats thinks its a good idea to get a mediocre 2nd/3rd line aging tweener for a playoff run and goes to his old buddies with the Coyotes to acquire Antoine Vermette.

Steve Ott. Because one of these years it's going to happen!

10-08-2014, 08:22 PM
i think center's too obvious - i chose left wing. lol

10-08-2014, 10:31 PM
if one or two of our D goes down close to the playoffs we could be vulnerable -- not sure the depth is there on the D at the level AV would want for a playoff run.
I Remember a season not long ago we lost a slew of dmen to injuries, we got lucky last year, give or take.

10-08-2014, 10:45 PM
In America, center is spelled -ER not -RE :p

10-08-2014, 11:55 PM
Thinking miller is sent packing with someone else and some prospects in a package for a more legitimate first/second line center

10-09-2014, 09:57 AM
Antoine Vermette

We already have 2 legitimate 2nd line centers so if anything happens it better be for a legitimate 1st line center. And hopefully its not someone looking to retire in the next two to three years.

edit - actually on 2nd thought that might be perfect. Hopefully in that time frame Hayes will ready to be that big bodied, power forward, 1st line center that we've lacked...forever.

Chris Stewart becomes a Ranger. Cheaply.
