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.

The Rangers should finally do a total rebuild.

Changing The Core
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 1:26:22 PM - January 30, 2018

For the Rangers core of Henrik Lundqvist, Rick Nash, Ryan McDonagh, Mats Zuccarello, and Marc Staal it's been a great ride. 1 Stanley Cup Finals and 3 Eastern Conference Title games and alot of wins that have Lundqvist as the 8th winingest NHL Goalie of all-time with 426 wins as of now. IF Hank wins just 20 games for his last 3 seasons (for which he already holds the record for 20 win seasons to start a career), Lundqvist will be a top 5 all-time winning goalie. Should the new core be J.T. Miler, Chris Kreider, Jimmy Vesey, Kevin Hayes, and Jesper Fast. Pavel Buchnevich,  Boo Nieves, Vinnie Lettieri have also shown this season that are NHL ready for a role on the Rangers. Lias Anderrson and Filip Chytil are showing alot of promise with the Rangers AHL Wolfpack. The last 4 should be on next seasons opening night roster.

Now, what to do with some of the older core? Does anyone actually see this years version of the Blueshirts as a Cup contender? With Chris Kreider and Kevin Shattenkirk out for most , if not al of the regular season, it's time to THANK the players that brought so much Rangers fun at the Garden and give them a chance to win the Cup with another team as the Rangers rebuild. Everyone is talking about trading Nash, Grabner, Holden, which should get the Rangers some high draft picks and a few prospects. Marc Stall needs to be moved to make room for Anthony DeAngelo which was a key in the Stepan trade. To move Staalt would sem the Rangers will have to eat 1/2 his salary. Ryan McDonagh is tough trading the Captain, but they did trade Ryan Callahan so it is possible. How about a McDonagh for Paciorety even up trade? Both have another year and around the same money. It's harder to see Mats Zuuuuucarello moved but he would bring back at least a #1st round pick in this years deep draft along with a young NHL player and a prospect. The hardest player to see moved would be THE KING. The King has been loyal to the Rangers and the city of NYC. He would probably bring in 2 first round picks, and NHL player, and a top level prospect which is pretty much the ransom they got when Brian Leetch was traded years ago. Most people will think that trading Lundqvist is a non-starter but if the Rangers choose to rebuild, The King deserves a chance to win the Cup, which the Rangers wouldn't bee ready to compete for at least a few years. Rangers fans are willing to do a rebuild as was proven by the when the Rangers changed the core to Callahan, Dubinsky, Lundvist, etc......

If the Rangers are trying to rebuild, it needs to happen all the way. Moving only a few of the players and keeping some that have been along for the 3 conference and 1 Stanley Cup Finals is understandable but not wise. In the world of sports it's a business, not like 20-30 years ago where loyalty and staying with 1 team for a career was the way. Players move all the time, even Gretzky, Bourque, and others have been traded for a chance at the Cup with a new team. I'm all for trading all of our older players and Thank them for giving it their all and good luck trying for the Cup while the rebuild starts. The new core should be J.T. Miller, Chris Kreider, Jimmy Vesey, Pavel Buchnevich, Mika Zibanejed,Kevin Hayes, Jesper Fast, Brady Skjei, Anthony DeAngelo, Lias Anderrson, Filip Chytil, and bring in from the KHL goalie Igor Shesterkin to take over the reigns from The King. If the Rangers make alot of these moves of the older core, they should recieve a few 1st rounders along with their own which should be a top 10. This years draft has a few players that would make an instant impact on next years team in Rasmus Dahlin (defenseman), Andrei Svechnikov (RW), Brady Tkachuk (LW), Filip Zadina (LW), Oliver Wahlstrom (RW), Joe Veleno (C), Bode Wilde(D), Joel Farabee(LW), Ryan McLeod(C), Quinn Hughes(D), as the top of the class. 

This next month will be fun to watch what Rangers town! No matter what happens, #30 Henrik Lundqvist deserves a shot at the Cup one way or another. It's already a lock that The King will have his #30 raised to the Garden rafters and will make the Hockey Hall of Fame, but will he get a real chance to win a Cup? It won't be on this Rangers team as it now stands. Buy or Sell what will the Rangers choose to do? Piecing together a team to be compete for the playoffs just isn't goo enough anymore!

LET'S GO RANGERS!!
