Nice positioning at the far post to capitalize on the rebound. Which is good, because he's too short to screen most modern day goaltenders.

I cant wait until Edmonton signs RNH to a long term extension with a NMC so we never have to see his name brought up in trade proposals anymore, been going on too many years
- jimbro83


He had a long term until this, the final year of his deal. $6M/per. Seemed fair for a 1bC. Now they have CMD and Drai and no wingers so he is a winger. Not an elite C, but a very good 2C. Depends on his cost come next contract. Edm should be his best situation as a good winger who can fill in at C if either of CMD or Drai need time off.

Ya, because most goalies don't drop into the butterfly as soon as it appears a puck is directed at the net. And most shots are above the 5'8" wingers shoulders.

my whole thing with RNH is that whenever someone talks about Edmonton they say "all they have is McDavid and Draisatl" especially when it comes to giving one of them the Hart trophy

Not usually. Anytime someone get too salty we just pour some maple syrup over them.

edit:
poop! Now I'm thinking about mdw again!!

At least Larry Brooks is consistent:
"Moving one (of ADA or Fox) to the left would create an opening on the right side that the team would need to address before the season. It would also leave a spot open for Nils Lundkvist, the right-handed, 28th-overall selection of the 2018 draft, who has not yet signed with the Rangers and is playing the season with Lulea of the Swedish Hockey League.

The SHL’s regular season is scheduled to end on March 6, followed by the playoffs. It is possible that the slick 20-year-old Swede could join the Rangers late in the NHL season. It is also possible that he could decide not to sign, play in Sweden another season, and become a free agent following 2021-22. That is something to monitor down the line."

I definitely like the idea of Nils joining the team in late March

Good job. Now flip the little weenie for bigger needs. And do the same with Strome. And that 40-watter Lemieux. And let the kids play.

there's no way they are trading Tony D now, he'll get every chance to see what he can do on the left side

but, still definitely a trade candidate down the line

You mean about letting kids play? Or just capitalizing on all the RFAs?

I just find it hard to believe he won’t sign. The rangers would make him promises of ice time and a spot if it came to that. They aren’t going to let him get away.

Quite likely. But if his value decreases, which it could, for on and/or off-ice reasons, we will have made a mistake.

Good morning Rangers Nation!

Reinhart is not the answer.

Good old fashioned trades, primarily dollar for dollar is going to be the only way to go these days. As well as those Teams hard up against the Cap making trades for picks and prospects. Maybe TB takes picks and a prospect for Cirelli, and Strome is moved for a pick, exactly they way Tommy G Train said, minus the offer sheet.

Would not give up on Chytil. By the time he 28, he's a definite #2 C, and maybe even a #1.

Would not give up on Buchnevich either. His size and offensive skill set opposite Lafreniere, Kakko, Panarin or Kreider is exactly what they will be looking for if they parted ways with him.

Lastly I think Colin Blackwell could be the #3 C we've been yearning for. His pedigree is simple but he appears to be an honest, hard working hockey player with some offensive upside. Kind of like Dominic Moore, remember him? Who knows, maybe he develops into Mark Pavelich. I believe Quinn has watched him since his college days and played a big part in this signing.

Lets Go Rangers! The future is so bright, we are all going to wear shades! (didn't someone say that once before?).

Take good care and enjoy your day everyone.

- VinnyP


I agree, no to Reinhart.

Chytil has not shown me anything in the last 2 years that hes got the ability to be a 2C, and especially not a 1C. Did you know hes 6'2, 205lbs? For such a big body, he plays like hes 5.8, 175lbs. He sucks on faceoffs, defensively just good enough, and I never see him body up on guys. To me hes a LW that the Rangers wish could play center because of the lack of depth they have at the position.

Buchnevich is a decent player however he doesnt strike me as the type of player who elevates the guys around him. I think Kravtsov is where the money is at and we cant keep both of them.

I think our future 3C is going to be Morgan Barron, he screams all the tools to be a solid good hockey player.

Every year can't be the greatest draft class of all time.
RNH was a number 1. I'd rather have him as the defacto top player in the draft when I have that selection than Hughes or Hischier or Yakupov.
Play the hand you're dealt!!

Would be awesome to see him make a good pairing with Trouba

That would be a great 1st pair if Tony doesnt miss a beat on the left
