    Rangers Could Add Buchnevich Late in Season; Graves, Drury Both Scouting in Russia

    @NYP_Brooksie: 1/2 NYR have had Adam Graves in Russia scouting Buchnevich, will send Chris Drury to watch him in next few weeks. Possible late-season add..

    @NYP_Brooksie: 2/2...Buchnevich possible late-season add if he is not placed on Russia's World Championship list...

    That would be amazing to get him over here but I fear that a total lack of Russian players on the current roster makes it a little harder.

    Yea, I'm sure he'll be on Russia's WC roster.

    Why not? Save a 2nd or 1st rounder that we'll probably end up giving up to put us "over the top". If he can't find his way, just don't play him. Nothing lost really

    Russia generally stacks up that WC roster. I could see Buchnevich being rather low on the totem pole for them.

    Buchnevich could theoretically be over in the United States by late February if he's not on the WC roster.

    Yea. I agree that he'll probably get on that roster, but he wasn't on the 23 they had in April, so it wouldn't exactly be surprising if he didn't supplant someone.

    Worst case scenario, he gets in 20 games + playoffs in the AHL if we don't have a spot for him. Then he comes to camp next year with North American experience. I hope he's not on the WC roster just for that.

    Best case scenario: he joins the team immediately and scores 50+ goals from here until we raise the Stanley Cup.

    I forgot to add that he is so good at hockey that he negates the need for Nash who we can immediately trade for a terrific #1 Center.

    If he was that good we really wouldn't need a top center.

    They will put him on the roster just to prevent him from coming here. They know he's a pending UFA and they are in the process of trying to destroy our transfer agreement.

    Back in the day (this time last year), I'd be terrified it was Sather looking for confirmation that we should go ahead and trade him.

    This is what I would rather see happen. Id rather him go to the AHL and get comfortable on the smaller ice and then come in next year for the full season with the Rangers. No need to rush him, the only way I would put him on the roster is if we have a significant injury in the top 9.

    Wish I could add Pavel to my dynasty league team, but he's not even in the Yahoo database yet.
