    Wrote about this. Wonder if Fabbro or even Fiala can be nabbed? Nashville and Calgary both lack a first- or second-round pick this year.

    Both players are more valuable to their respective organizations than draft picks they'd get in return. Wouldnt make much sense for either team, unless there was a gross over-payment. And that wouldnt make sense to the Rangers.

    Yea, Nashville needs Fabbro. Assuming he turns pro next year, both Josi and Ellis will be looking for new deals while Fabbro is still on his ELC. They're both gonna get huge raises and its unlikely they'll be able to keep both so they'll have a top 4 opening for Fabbro.

    Gorton doesn't have a clue to which player to even look for. I have noticed that there was a thread about firing the coach. V had nothing to do with the trades which decimated the team (including buying out Girardi). Gorton traded or gave up on, MacDonough, Stralman, Holden and Girardi. Three of them are playing for Tampa Bay (110 points) and Holden is with Boston (also 110 points). What did he get in return? Nothing for Girardi and "19 year olds" for the rest. The man hasn't got a clue how to build a team but he is very "corporately" correct in the eyes of management. Will he dump Zuck and Krieder in the off season? For more draft picks? I have been a Ranger Fan for more years than he has been alive for more years than he has been alive (saw my first game in 1948) and have seen these moves before by other incompetent GM's along the way. The only time it worked was when we got Messier. GGG (Gorton Gotta' Go).

    By the way, here is my starting lineup for players still active who were with the Blueshirts before being sent packing. Not too shabby when you consider that Raanta is the back up goaltender. What did we get for this lot? GGG

    Nash - Stepan - Lindberg
    Hagelin - Miller - Callahan
    Dubinsky - Boyle - Stepniak
    Moore - Brassard - Grabner

    Holden - Stralman
    McDonagh - Girardi
    Falk - Yandle

    Must be hard to watch the rebuild knowing your window soon closes.

    I don’t know if that 1935 on your handle is your birth year, but if you saw your first game in 1948 I’d guess you were at least 5. That would make you 75 today, at the least. I don’t believe you’re that old.

    He's listing a lineup with guys we've traded or let walk in FA. Hank is still on the roster, so he wasn't included.

    I don't disagree at all. I read the post last night, starting listing the cap hits and got all the way to Yandle and deleted the post. We're talking about Justin Falk here. Who is upset that we don't have Justin Falk on the team anymore?
    Same goes for Dubi, D. Moore, Stempniak.
