    Next to stay: Zuc, Hank ( mentor to the young backup) Vesey, Shatternkirk, Skjei, Krieder (on short leash), Zibanejad, MIller, Hayes, Buchnevich, Holden ???, DeAngelo (will be better). The rest gets filled in to make the team youth and FA's.

    Even of you tank the rest pf the season they will not get Dahlin. He is going to Arizona or Bujffalo. Best they could get is 5,6,7
    Not getting too much for those guys. Other names are being floated because they will return significant assets that may help the team, long-term

    I have misgivings about this letter. It seems to be telegraphing punches and does not enhance bargaining positions. Obviously, this means the sale is going to go well beyond the UFAs, which means McD & Zuch.

    It would be a shocker if both of them were still around at the start of next season.

    This was released by NY Rangers, online and through twitter


    I'm going to assume you dont read twitter.
    It's an extremely fragile bunch.

    Gorton did a press conference as well.

    I’m always skeptical of management, but I’ll tell you, I think Gorton is doing this the right way. Never seen a letter and presser before the deadline. I’ve got faith. It’s been a good run but I’m excited to see this new era.

    Idk, I'm sure teams either know the position we are in anyway or would find out when we start calling around the league shopping our best players. I don't think this changes how other teams will approach us in negotiations.

    26 scouts in the building last night is what Sather said. Teams are circling like sharks. If anything it creates more competition.

    I could careless if they lower prices. As a 14 year season ticket holder they have rewarded our loyalty with increase after increase to now dynamic pricing. Well what’s dynamic about this team? Their continued spite for the season ticket holder is going to come back to bite them in the ass now. I had long ago decided to not renew and it had nothing to do with performance. I’ll be expecting the phone calls and emails soon proclaiming their renewed love and appreciation for me. Too late I’ll watch this circus from home

    The first person I thought of was Lundqvist actually.

    Dude wants to win a cup, we all know that. He only has 3-4 more seasons left and maybe 1-2 of those at a highly competitive level. If we can get a decent return for him I am all for it. Just dont "Leetch" it up please.

    Oh god, what? Fast? Who cares? No one is untouchable.

    I will say, however, if Hank is traded, I'll be shocked and a little sad. They need change for sure but that would make me sad.

    Lundqvist said he wants to be part of the process, and even if he wanted to be traded, there really isnt a contending team that could use him.

    Why? What's the point of keeping him when everyone else is going to be terrible?

    Plus, he'll be a UFA after 19-20.

    The most damning thing Gorton said was "we don't have an identity." It's so nice to hear the management be brutally honest for once.

    cuz I've been tempted to buy a Jesper Fast jersey and that would be a waste if he's traded. In line with my Blair Betts jersey for underappreciated guys

    He's going to change his number again next season. No point in getting your 5th Fast jersey.
