RUMOR MILL

Wednesday - June 26th

Elliot Friedmman of Sportsnet, reports that the Avalanche weren't willing to include the 16th overall pick to the Rangers in exchange for Chris Kreider.

Wonder who else wasn't willing to include a first rounder for him. Part of the problem of course is his UFA status next year, and then the expansion draft after that.

Rangers Youth Getting Their Chances
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 11:09:25 AM - January 2, 2011

The Rangers mindset of old, that always went out and overpaid for free agents that didn't work together, seems to have crossed the Hudson to the delight of many of the Garden Faithful. The Rangers are actually living up to the words of Glen Sather when they had a fan question and answer at the Garden during the strike, in which they said their was a youth movement coming and that a Rangers prospect would be given a chance before the Rangers went outside of the organization besides one or two marque players (Gaborik).

For the first time in decades, this thought process has brought the Rangers Lundqvist, Staal, Girardi, Del Zotto, Sauer, Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov, and first time NHL signees in Gilroy and Zuccarrello. Add to that low cost players that have added well to this team such as Brian Boyle, Brandon Prust , and Eric Christensen. When an injury happens, no problem, the Rangers bring up another prospect that fits in such as Weise. Meanwhile across the Hudson, The Newark Devils have hit ROCK bottom after overpaying and another NTC/NMC and the 15 year contract of Kovulchoke. Add 10 more loses to Fatso, and he has the most loses ever for an NHL goalie.

Besides the players already on the Rangers, the Rangers have players ready to make the next step in their progression. Watching the USA JR. team you see Kreider and Borque leading the team to the most points during the regultaion round that earned them a 1st round bye and will probably face Canada in the semi's. Kreider reminds me of a Shanahan when he sets up for his one-timers, but is a much better skater(he has a great scoring touch it's doubtful he will have as many NHL goals as Shanahan). Borque looks like a smaller version of Callahan. In Jr's the Rangers have Ethan Werek who is a Prucha like scorer. The Undertaker-McIlrath looks like he will become a Buekaboom type with alittle more offensive upside. Add in Kundratek,Mcdonagh, and Valetenko who could all be ready for a shot at the NHL next year and there seems to be a trade brewing involving at least one dman as there will be at least 9 fighting for 7 spots even if they let Eminger walk.

The Rangers have had injuries that in the past would have put them at the bottom of the standings where the Devils are, but with the depth that the Rangers now have, they are 6 points out of the most points overall in the Eastern conference. The issue will be, who will sit when the veterans come off of their injuries. When Gaborik came back, it was a no-brainer that Todd White would go down the the Whale. When Drury came back, Grachev (who needs to show more progress but is still very young) and others like Weise were sent back down. The injury to Eric Christensen will relieve some pressure as Weise is getting in some games but seems to be the most likely to go down once Prospal returns soon. The game expeience for Weise this season wasn't expected so his NHL progression is ahead of schedule.

All isn't perfect at Rangerworld though. Along with the great redefining of the Rangers Organization has been some real klunkers. Sather makes great trades BUT some free-agent signings were horrible. The worst of late was Wade Redden. Now banished to the AHL, he still has 3 years left on his bloated overpaid contract. Todd White was necessary as the Donald Brashear contract was just a brutal contract that had to be traded away due to the over 35 aspect of the signing. The Scott Gomez signing turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Gomez was never given a wing to work with(Jagr didn't Click with him), but the trade with Montreal turned into Gomez for McDonagh,Valetenko,Prust(who was Higgins from Montreal), and allowed us the cap to sign Gaborik.

Here is hoping that the New Year brings us the same as this year of 2010 and the Rangers management stays the course with the youth and doesn't move some of the future ruining a long run at being a top flight team with a perennial shot at the CUP for a veteran that might not even fit into the Rangers system.

May this year bring the Rangers Lord Stanley and HEALTH and HAPPINESS for ALL!! Enjoy watching these Rangers progress and also the rebuilding of the Garden!!
