    Nevermind the question of how he fits or how this fixes team needs. Do you make that trade?
    Makes me more suspicious about that neck.

    That asking price is very low. You’d 100% have to be concerned about that neck.

    Kevyn Adams would have to go to prison for life if thatís all he gets.

    Rangers Interested in Eichel?

    I donít think anybody bites on Eichel. Do you want to be the GM who gives up a 1st, a player & a prospect for a guy who may never be the same, while paying 10 mil. per. If itís me, I wonít take the chance of making the deal and looking like a fool if he doesnít bounce back. This is the kind of deal that will make your career or end it.

    Meanwhile for Adams itís a win win, if he deals Eichel, heís saving the company 10 mil per and getting back a 1st, a player & a prospect. Taking that 10 mil and signing another healthy player while all the while saying we canít take the chance of keeping a disgruntled player who is injured and will bring the moraL down in the dressing room. And other the other hand he can say we need to keep one of the best players in the league.

    So Basically Buffalo is gonna have to hold on to him for 2 yrs. this year for him to heal and get healthy, whether he has the surgery or not. And next to prove that heís healthy and raise his stock.

    He's been the source of constant trade talk from the start in Minnesota, among those who watch him all the time. Those folks aren't too enamored of him.

    Eichel has 5 years at $10m per. Just wondering, how many of you would sign him at $10m per for 5 years if he were a UFA?

    Hereís something I caught on blueshirts forever, Anthony Scultore:

    Up until his suspension, Scheifele had five points in five playoff games. He has 3 years left on a deal that pays $6.125 million per season. So why am I bringing up Scheifele? Well thatís because Larry Brooks randomly inserted his name into the rumor mill with his latest Slap Shots column.

    Though it goes without saying, it will be said anyway: If Mark Scheifele somehow becomes available out of Winnipeg, he is the player for whom the Rangers empty the cupboard, and the guy in Buffalo becomes Jack Who?

    NY Post
    While Brooks could be speculating, itís also very possible that Scheifeleís name was whispered into his ear. Interesting, if nothing else.

    I will say this though, the Jets could view some of the Rangers defense prospects like Matthew Robertson, or Zac Jones as legit trade pieces. Maybe coupled with Ryan Strome, a deal could be made.

    Without a doubt. But besides Brooks, who is reporting he may even be available?

    Probably based on all the stories that came out about the Jets leadership team issues, including the Laine stories.

    Scheifele in his health with his contract over Eichel in his health with his contract.

    I think at the end of the day, this is around the final price the Rangers will have to pay, maybe throw in Gauthier or equivalent.

    He wants out. He's having surgery, he's never won a damn thing. He's Eric Lindros without the playoff experience or the pudding head.

    Not many teams can take on that salary, or looking for a big move. Unless Ottawa decides it's time to get back in the race. I picture his name fitting perfectly on an Ottawa jersey. But that's it.

    No doubt. But the cost to aquire him would be waaaay more and the last trade with Winnipeg didn't really work in the Rangers favor.

    Unless Buffalo is willing to retain salary, I'm not touching Eichel even with a 10 foot pole.

He was a revelation, but let's be real — he wasn't this player for much more than the last like 120~ games over two seasons.

    If it's Niederreiter for Clutterbuck, he's pretty much going to Minnesota for Greenway? LOL.

    Moving Buchnevich for Greenway is a big fucking L for the Rangers. (Sorry Ozzy).

    Again, Greenway isn’t a leader, center, fighter, game changer, etc. Rangers don’t need more guys that look good on paper.
    Did someone say Greenway??

    It's cool Josh man!!! We all have our favorites...I watched a lot of Wild games this season, and I just liked watching the guy play and learn the power forward position. Greenway still has a lot to learn in my opinion, but I think he's going to be a force if put in the right setting.

    I'd love to see him here, because I think he gives us some serious "WHOA" factor.

    Panarin - Eichel - Kreider
    Lafreniere - Zibanejad - Kakko
    Blackwell - Strome - Chytil
    Barron - Rooney - Gauthier
    god. the more you look at this the more i think we should not have signed kreider.

    also what did we get for strome?

    also outside of barron.. whos knows what he will be that line is vanilla

    I mean, they had no way of expecting they'd luck into Lafreniere. It's hard to hold that against them.

    I’m also hearing the Rangers are not likely, or much less likely now, to be taking a big leap into the injured and expensive Jack Eichel pool.
