    As far as the contracts, every competitive team in the cap era will have that issue. You build it to get 3 or 4 legit cracks at it and then you sell off stuff and start over. A team who didn't do it (Kings) vs a team who did (Boston) is difference between a good GM and a weak one. Really can't blame a GM in a cap era for trying to keep a great team together.
    I think Tampa is a good team, but I think a lot of those guys got paid as good players, when they should have been paid as depth players playing on a good team.

    Cooper's arrogance bothers me.

    i wanted them to go all the way for selfish reasons but just shows how much you have to ratchet up your game during the playoffs in this league.

    that being said can we trade for braydon point?

    Tampa calls and offers Point for the #2 and Buchnevich. Who is making the trade?

    So Point could come here and be a 60 point player? No thanks. Kucherov had a hand in 57 of Point's 92 points (62%) and half his goals came from being on the league's best PP unit.

    Point would be a great #2 center for us, but not at the expense of Kakko.

    Rangers hang up because they’re not dealing #2 pick. Period.
    Outside of that vacuum, proven commodities vs. potential? That’s a toughie, but I’d be inclined to say no for the same reason that LLTK outlined.
    The Rangers don’t have the same support that Point has had all of his career and I worry that we’d have another Namestnikov on our hands.

    Also, I’m fucking sick of trading with Tampa. There are 29 other teams to trade with.

    LOL, the Rangers have made 2 trades with Tampa the last 5 years (2014, 2018).

    From a cap perspective, the deal makes little sense because Point is going to get PAID and he would just take up the cap that we should use for Panarin without costing us any assets. Let me make it more enticing:

    just goes to show how difficult it is to win the cup. Being the best regular season team ever may equal to first round sweep in the playoffs.

    I've been waiting 51 years of rooting for this team for a pick like this and I'm not giving it up for anything.

    Tampa will be back, but I hope they are wrecked by an untenable cap situation before they win a cup.

    Only feel bad for Girardi. Honest old school hockey player.

    Lol I don't think I would trade it either. Just having some fun. I don't think any team is crazy enough to meet the kind of price it would take just to get the ball rolling in my mind.
