RUMOR MILL

Tuesday - October 25th

Either Josh Jooris (New York Daily News) or Dylan McIlrath are likely to find themselves on waivers when Pavel Buchnevich returns from back spasms.

The team is expected to cut the roster down to 22 players, and as such one of the two will need to be either moved or sent down.

Will Stepan's holdout this season move him out of town?

What Will THE MOVE Be?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 9:33:50 PM - June 19, 2014

While the New York Rangers Organization and it's fans are finally able to seperate their thoughts from the sting of losing in the Stanley Cup Finals, they can look back at this past action packed hockey season with pride and wonder what the fututre holds. The Rangers played their preseason and first 2 weeks of the season on the road while The Worlds Most Famous Arena was finishing up its renovation. The next step was playing in TWO outdoor games at Yankee Stadium and the circus that surrounds each game. Add to that the Olympic break and the extra games and travel that Rangers key players had to make playing for their countries. Then came the most emotional part of the season where the Rangers traded their captian and core of the team Ryan Callahan. All of that lead to a magical playoff run that just fell short in their bid to win a 5th Stanley Cup in franchise history. Now comes the tweaks to the team that everyone hopes will get the Rangers that extra push to get the Cup next year, but one wrong move and the house of cards could crumble.

The Rangers put all their hope in a trade that brought Rick Nash to New York. I was in attendance 2 years back when the talk was of a Rick Nash trade to New York and as he played on the Garden ice versus the Rangers, the Garden Faithful chanted "We don't want you!". The trade happened and he was forced on the Ranger faithful. Their are times where you can see why the Rangers paid the price for the hulking power forward but most of the time he is a perimeter player that seems afraid to get hurt by going into the areas that he needs to play in. The Rangers seem to be ready to double down on the Nash experiment. Looking at all the rumors out their, it would seem the best answer for the Rangers that would cause the least amount of damage to the teams core will be Nash BFF Joe Thorton. The top 3 options for the Rangers would seem to be Eric Staal (Marc Staal is in the last year of his contract and looking for an extension this summer and this move would help but Eric's caphit is $8.25 mil per and doesn't fit without Carolina keeping some of the money), Jason Spezza (it sounds like Ottowa is looking for Stepan type, McIlrath type, and a #1 that the Rangers don't have for another 2 years), and Thorton (reports are saying that San Jose is looking for a Stepan type and a McIlrath type). So although it would seem that all these players would be helpful to get the Rangers over the hump, only one of these moves would seem to lead to get Rick Nash to get to the All Star level he needs to play at.  Rick Nash and Joe Thorton have a history together as they played overseas during the NHL strike and really bonded. Making the trade for Joe Thorton while giving up say Derek Stepan and Dylan McIlrath or John Moore would fit under the cap and should make the most of Rick Nash's talents. 

Derek Stepan will be involved in a trade if Glen Sather past moves are any indication. Brandon Dubinsky and Michael Del Zotto both played hardball during their contract negotiations while restricted free agency and held ot just like Derek Stepan did. Both of the prior free RFA's played for a season and were then traded as it seems that Rangers GM might find it "disloyal" to the hockey code he lives by. It would seem that Anton Stralman, Benoit Pouliot, and Brian Boyle are on the way out as their contract demands would seem to be too high for the jobs they do on the Rangers. Replacing them with Jesper Fast,  Conor Allen, and J.T. Miller are all players that Rangers coach Alain Vigneault would seem to fit into the coaches thought process of adding in a few pieces from the minors each year to keep the "hunger factor". Giving Chris Kreider a 2 year deal for around $2.75 per, Mats Zuccarello a 2 year deal for around $2.75 per, Dominic Moore a small raise to $1.2 for a year, and qualify Derek Brassard for his $3.7 mil or take the 1st round and 3rd round picks from any team to sign him to an offer sheet for that amount and sign a free agent with that amount of money. This leaves the Rangers over $1 million under the cap for next season.

All of this is still with keeping Brad Richards on the Rangers roster. One thing that coach Alain Vigneault likes is to have a line of two players with an optional third that can switch out depending on the type of game and team they are playing against. Making the above changes, the Rangers would have Richards and Martin St. Louis with Chris Kreider. Rick Nash and Joe Thorton with Carl Hagelin. Mats Zuccarello and Derek Brassard with Jesper Fast. Derek Dorsett and Dominic Moore with J.T. Miller. On the blueline, it would be Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh as the shutdown pair. Marc Staal (for at least next year) and Kevin Klein(who will fill Anton Stralman's spot) as the 2nd pairing and rookie Conor Allen and John Moore as the third pairing. All this is backstopped with the King between the pipes backed up by Cameron Talbot!!

THANK YOU RANGERS FOR A GREAT RUN and hoping to take it one step further next season!! LETS GO RANGERS!!
