    Not for 4 years IMO. Full NMC which I don't see either party acting on just to keep Buchnevich.

    I think Miller will make the team and one of ADA or Fox will switch sides to play with Trouba.

    Smith will be the 7th.

    This is exactly why last season my blood pressure almost rang the bell at the trade deadline when they signed Kreider long term. His contract isn't terrible, but if Buch is showing that he may be a bigger part of the future, why not deal Kreider instead. I know CK has a NMC, but I'm not certain if they can't trade him to some team, somehow. I get mixed up with NMC's and NTC's with lists and all that jazz. I need a map with that crap. LOL

    THAT is going to be the combo of the future: I have such high hopes for Howden. I wanna see that kid really ring the bell! I think he's got everything it takes to be a star.

    Krieder is a LW who can't play the right.

    Buch is a RW who can't play the left.

    Your point with Buch is right though...Hopefully we can get something that fills a BIG need for us when his time is up here!

    funny thing is, I was going to post my projected line up with Howden with Panarin and Strome, playing the Jesper Fast role. I mean, he hustles, he tries on defensive, he scored some nice dirty goals in front of the net, and Quinn loves him.

    I'm not a huge fan of Howden but who knows. It can spread out the offensive talent on the third line, too. I know people talk of Kakko there, but that's not enough puck to go around for Panarin Strome Kakko.

    Lafreniere Chytil Kakko is never going to happen as the third line.

    It really makes you think about how truly fucked Gorton was this summer. The only reason no one is talking about it is because they're happy about Laffy.
    What loss? A 3rd strong goaltender and a bottom 6 forward? Or where we concerned about Staal?
    In two seasons weve seen more talent added then since the 94 team.
    Panarin, Fox, Kappo, Lafren, Trouba, and a future franchise tender named Shesty.
    Weve had 8 1st round picks in the last 4 years after having zero the 4 previous years.

    This team just needed to continue current path.

    Unless Kreider switches to RW, which he's done as recently as this past season. That or LaF switches position which has been talked about here. Maybe to center?

    Brooks: "I’ll tell you this. Whenever I see a projected Rangers’ lineup that does not have Alexis Lafreniere in the top six, but rather on the third line with the Blueshirts stacking left wings Artemi Panarin, Chris Kreider and Lafreniere, I hope this does not reflect the views of management."

    Agree. Obviously we haven't seen him at the NHL level yet, but projecting, you can not stick a prospect of Lafreniere's caliber on the third line alongside average at best players (assuming Chytil/Howden etc. don't take their game up to the next level). You can not risk stunting his NHL development that way.

    I love Kreider's game, and he's getting paid to be a top 6, but he'll have to be the third liner as far as I'm concerned. At least if he gets paired up with the right guys and they develop some chemistry, we can potentially roll three lines that can produce.

    Gotta at least give Lafreniere a shot to see what he can do with Zibanejad.
