Jettisoning Girardi was a good move but av is still rolling out Staal, Holden and Kampfer who are all trash. And Smith had been as well.

It’s blow it up time. After trading Step for picks (since D’Angelo was sent down) should’ve made that clear, but I bought into the “rebuild on the fly” thing.

Hey! Tanner Glass is on waivers. Even money he ends up back on the 4th line.

I think it is great that AV started winning enough to save his job. It will make our eighth place finish that much more delightful in the wake of our first round shellacking to know that like the poor, AV will always be with us.

I get that you're always in the game if you have Hank mentality, but given the way they built this team and AV coaches it, it was probably time to trade him 2 years ago.

Other than that, get what you can for any vet. Even McDononaugh. Sucks but its time.

Word out of Ranger land is that McDononaugh, Zucc, Nash and Grabner are on the trading block as the Rangers have decided to reboot and basically skip making the playoffs for an eighth straight year. According to TSN they think they can get a few 1st round picks, and a few young contributors. They are also likely to deal Descharnais and Holden—TSN said they could get a 4th or 5th rounder for each, which was surprising. I thought TSN was a bit bullish on what the Rangers could get for Nash, but the article reminded me that they got two first round picks and a 4th and 5th rounder for 36 year old Brian Leetch, who proceeded to suck on the Leafs and Bruins, and frankly was skating with a fork in his back on the Rangers at that point, so maybe someone will overpay for Nash. McDononaugh should definitely command a Leetch-type haul.

Nash managed to increase his trade value in the last few weeks before that California road trip. I would be sorry to see McDonagh go.

The elephant in the room is that Vigneault is not the one to bring a Cup to New York. The sooner they realize that the better. If Quenneville really is done in Chicago, they'd be foolish not to make a run at him. Gut the team, hire Quenneville, and let him build a Cup competitor again.

I think AV would be gone under such a scenario as he does not have the temperament and desire to coach a young team. It will be interesting that when/if the rumored housekeeping takes place, Kreider will be the longest tenured skater at 25 years of age. I also heard that they may be shopping Hank as well. Hank has been playing really well since mid-November and there are teams--the Blues specifically--who could take the cap hit and who are Cup contenders despite underwhelming goaltending (Carter Hutton and Jake Allen). The two questions are would Hank agree to the trade--how badly does he want to win the Cup versus trying to hang on through what will be a rebuild (even if it is a short rebuild) and what would St Louis give up for probably two playoffs worth of a goal tending upgrade over their current option.

AV has demonstrated his inability to deal with young talent as evidenced by his absolutely atrocious use of Buchnevich, as well as the way he handled Hayes in his second year. He has consistently failed to put his young players in a position to succeed. I would not be disappointed if AV decided to walk after this. Maybe we can do another swap with Chicago the way we did with Vancouver.

I feel like the Rangers shop Hank each year to see what they could get. However, I think most teams recognize that he is on the back end of his career and aren't willing to give what I would think the Rangers would hope they could get for him. You could argue the move should have been made a few years ago when Cam Talbot demonstrated he was more than adept at filling the starting goalie role. If they really do shed all the older talent on the team (Mac, Zucc, Nash) they may hold onto Hank for his veteran presence as well.

Alright, we're up to 6 picks in the first 3 rounds and still have at least McDonaugh to go. Hear there's interest around Zucc (who I would hate to see go, but maybe Calgary grabs him to play with Johnny), and I assume that at least one of Miller/Hayes/Spooner will be traded as well.

Less likely that someone wants to take Hank but it's probably time (a year or two late to be truthful) and it'd be awesome if we could find a way to clear some of the dead $$ on the blue line but I'm not sure why anyone takes on Staal or Smith at this point

they have to get rid of mcdonagh today. have to.

the lundqvist extension, of 7 years at 32 years old, at a ridiculous 8.5 aav, was exactly the type of thing that teams that struggle to win championships do.

Yeah but then they were in the finals shortly after. I think if they won in 2015, itd be an excusable investment. Now, of course, he's really going to be the biggest blockade in moving forward from "rebuilding" to "rebuilt

McD and Miller to TB for a 1st, conditional 2nd and 3 prospects.

It'd be sad/hilarious if Cooper decides to tie Girardi around McDonaugh's ankles again.

i dont know anything about the prospects and only time will tell on those (and the picks), but i wonder how much more we got incrementally by adding miller to the deal

Also I messed up. They got Namestikov (can't spell his name right) as one of the guys. Pending RFA 20/20 pts/assists right now.

Apparently Hawley is TB's 2nd best prospect according to prospect weirdos.

The 2nd rounder in 2019 becomes a 1st rounder if TB wins the Cup this year or next.

Saw that as well. Brooks must be drinking again. My guess is it is one of the AHL guys.

If Barry Trotz doesn’t get re upped I’d really like him. I think a better defense and player usage and they may squeeze another run out of Hank.

Also apparently Kovalchuk is signing w the Rags for 2/3 years next year.

We don’t want Trotz. I have spoken to enough Caps and former Caps to know that. Yes, he is a good regular season coach, but his playoff record is atrocious. He is like the NHL version of David Quinn in terms of doing less with more.

Brooks tweeted out that Quinn has told everyone that he's staying at BU. Really hope so,

I guess the Rangers were interested in Montgomery before Dallas got him. I could've gotten behind that I think.

Done with the Rangers if Larry Brooks is correct and Quinn is the hire. Might as well hop on the Vegas bandwagon and stay there. This is what happens when you give Chris Drury a front office position. His Hobey Baker win is still one of the great travesties in college history.

yeah not a fan

wasn't a fan of montgomery either but would've preferred him to quinn, think monty is a pretty developer of talent. but i won't forget him whining like nospace after you cut off his unlimited breadsticks when jerry had the audacity to put out the powerplay unit with a period to go mid stomping in worcester
