    Well Hajek will be in the AHL next year. Rykov has one more year on his KHL contract. Lindgren has two more years of college before at least a year in the AHL. So all the D we just got at the deadline are at least 2-3 years away.

    Pionk, Gilmour and O'Gara are the defense you ice when tanking.

    Exactly.

    Phil called it with Holland when I was still blind.

    And they will get a chance next year, and when they fail the real prospects will be ready to try.

    They should be on Lindgren to sign after 3rd year, if not now.

    Gilmour can skate like the wind. Can't defense worth a damn, though.

    He's probably even faster than Gilroy was. Equally incapable of stopping opposing players from gaining his own end though.

    We have plenty of defensemen. Whatever more they need they can supplement through the draft or free agency.

    You want to see if Pionk, DeAngelo, and Gilmour can still take advantage of the opportunities they've had. Shattenkirk will be back, and Staal likely isn't going anywhere. Smith has another opportunity to redeem himself if he's also retained. Then you have some guys who aren't that far off. Rykov has one more year on his KHL deal, after which he will likely come over and have a shot at a spot given his professional play. Hajek will no doubt get considerable time in Hartford next season; he's not far off. I don't doubt that they'll use one of their first-round picks on a defenseman either. I don't think there's any point in using assets to fill in a position where you have a lot of young players. Right now is the best time to keep the spots open for younger players.

    I'd try cutting bait with Shattenkirk early if they can. ADA is the same player at like a third of the cost.

    Not yet. You have big contracts coming off in 3 years, guys will be ready to make an impact by then. No sense in worrying about that now. If the right deal comes along - sure, but that's no different than any other day.

    yes sir.

    To answer the original question imo they don't have nearly enough NHL ready dman. They have a few that won't be here for years and as Pete pointed out some stiffs at this point in there careers.

    The assumption here is that every prospect will develop into the player projected. Mind you that none of these guys are canít miss and it seems pretty much all of them will not be here until minimum 2019-2020 season. The rangers should forget the position and add the best talent. Talent is currency

    Im pretty confident that atleast 1 of Chytil, Andersson, Howden will take the #3C from the start of next season.

    Zib
    Hayes
    Lias
    Boo/Spooner/UFA

    is my guess for next season.

    It's not hard to miss with the road hockey wind up.

    Lol, yeah, he’s got a big wind up for sure. I just always noticed it on the pp, that’s all.

    Why'd you go say that? There are posters still trying to digest their most recent meals, you know. I hadn't thought about him in 15-20 years. Oh well, Neil Smith had it right. No problem with trading Zubov when you can get a guy like Driver to run the PP.

    Tanking is fine for this year, but we currently have three NHL ready defensemen on the roster and we need more to field some come of team while waiting for some of these prospects to arrive AND, if we are lucky, have one in three turn out well.
