    relevant to the Rangers) like potential trade candidates can be posted here as well.

    This thread is not designed for trade proposals. Please do not post them here unless
    they are specific to an existing rumor or report.


    This thread will be updated regularly between now and July 1st, as well as into the
    off-season months in the event major names are still available on the board (so to speak).





    Dates to Remember:


    NHL Draft Lottery — April 28th
    NHL Entry Draft — June 22nd, 23rd
    Free Agent Signing Period Begins — July 1st
    Buyout Window — TBD

    Never been so happy to see this up. What a debacle this season was.

    Clean out the rest of the crap. Start over.

    A couple of posters expressed concern about Anderson's foot speed after the Islanders game, so I focused on that watching the Philly game. I understand that sedatives were administered to the entire team before the game, but I have to say that I noticed several sequences where more powerful skating would have gotten Anderson possession. Yes, it's way too early to judge, but let's just say I don't think many NHL team's would trade the 7th pick in this year's or next year's draft for Anderson. By contrast, they all would trade the 21st pick for Chytl.

    1.) #1 center
    2.) Leadership
    3.) Defenseman. Type of guy needed will be based on coach/system. Must be mobile and reliable in own zone.

    Anderson has already said he needs to work on his speed this summer.

    I think he skated better this game than the previous few. He’s already a better skater than Stepan was at this age. Lias is a smart player, he’ll be able to get o the right spots. His game is built on smarts,not speed.

    I would say the major need is a player that is a goal scoring threat is a must as well.

    Stepan may be slow, but he still put up more points than anyone on this team did this season.

    Get a #1c and shift Zibanejad to wing. Let him worry about shooting instead of... anything to do with being a center.

    Firing AV will not help us, not when most of the Team was from the AHL and we had an AHL-level defense

    AV could have been fired after the Pitt series two years ago. They've been on the downward trend for three years. They're soft. They're slow. His system doesn't match the players available. He's not a teacher. It's time.

    Why? Because of our lack of depth on the defense and that some of our players turned into Giant turds this season? It's time we hold Jeff Gorton accountable

    Firing AV is addition by subtraction in and of itself.

    Absolutely! Hopefully, Gorton won't screw up our draft picks!

    Unless we trade down, that might be hard.
