Been reading that the Rangers, Penguins, & Blue Jackets are looking to trade for Max Domi. After a 44 point year after putting up 71 points, the MTL GM seems to have soured on him.

Small, feisty, talented

POTENTIAL 2nd line Center...certainly has questions, but skill & toughness aren’t one of them. We certainly have the assets to make that trade. I definitely see him as insurance if we get priced out on Strome.

Don’t love it...but certainly don’t hate it. I think he’d be great with Panarin.

Penguins and Blue Jackets don't have it farm or young talent wise to get Domi over the Rangers if they want him. I wouldn't give much more than Buchnevich. Domi is 25, doesn't have much size, is under 50% on draws. Forget about adding Chytil or Gauthier to it. Spare me. I'd much rather go for Dvorak. That guy is also clueless. Montreal needs legit young defenseman. Their defenseman suck ass and they refuse to draft them. Even players like Jones and Reunanen would be huge upgrades to their crappy d-man prospect pool. Personally, I'd pass. I don't think he is what we are looking for.

On HF they are saying Rangers are taking about Lindholm and Hanifin while Calgary likes Buchnevich, Hajek and Andersson. For what that is worth.

Lindholm would get a fantastic get.

We need to let Tony D walk if he asks for anything more than 3.2 p/year. He had ONE great offensive year but his defense leaves much to desire. We need to remember that we will need to sign Zib, KK, Lindgren, Laffy and Foxy within the next 2-3 years.

Let Smith finish his contract and if you can buy out Lundqvist or try and trade him.

Stay away from Eichel as it will be another heavy contract to absorb and most likely will spell the end of Zib. We have players in the pipeline and we are NOT going to move the needle next season for a Championship. Stay the course.

As usual you don't do any research. Throw out Lindbolm's one fluke year where Gaudreau carried him and his other 5 years average out to be 44 points a year. Whoopdeefukingdo. Lindbolm is a complimentary player. nothing more. Hanifin has underachieved pretty much his entire career. You talk like they are stars and they aren't close to that.

BM is drunk and bored. They Rangers aren't going to trade two players who could be cheap for several more years and stars in Kakko and Lafreniere. Eichel makes no sense and is not needed here.

f





Your poor parents and all the “Why is he so stupid” questions. Hanifan and Lindholm were obtained because the Calgary coach at the time Bill Peters had them in Carolina. Knew what he was getting. Lindholm is Calgary’s 1 or 1a right winger. Try tearing yourself away from the Flinstones and actually watch a game with someone that can explain stuff like offsides and icings for a start. Hanifan is very well regarded in Calgary also and ain’t going anywhere. Every year you bring up this halfboards for halfwits crap, like it’s written in stone. Keep it coming it’s good for a laugh if nothing else.

According to rumours no qualifying offer for Strome yet, still some time to do it, but it appears Gorton is either trying some hardball for a contract he likes, or he’s going to let Strome walk. I don’t think a one year contract for Strome and a trade on deadline day is the end of the world, and think it’s exactly what Gorton does unless Strome has some king of renaissance season becoming a keeper, and doubt that happens. Don’t see Gorton dumping Strome for nothing and possibly having to use the 22 overall in a package to replace him.

He's not going to use the 22nd overall pick to replace him when he has players like Buchnevich and TDA plus prospects to easily acquire a center. Gorton is going to keep his 1st rounders coming so he always has cheap talent coming to help manage the cap for years.

Your assuming another team trading a quality guaranteed second line center would want either one of Buchhnevich or DeAngelo. The pick is in play until a trade is otherwise done.

Quinn loves Buchnevich I truly doubt he goes anywhere unless it’s a package for a legitimate 2nd center. TDA is coming back on probably a 2/3 year deal. The newly acquired cap space told me everything I needed to know on how the Rangers feel about the 3 qualified RFAs.

Look for us to trade #22 & some prospects like Jones, Robertson, Hajek, Pajuniemi

I can see Buchnevich in the right deal but opposing teams will need more in a deal for a 1a/2 Center, hence the pick. Only a fool trades a young dman like DeAngelo that in only his second full season in the league finishes tied for top four defense man scoring in the entire league. Many’s the offensive dman that got better at defense. Leetch was far from solid defensively in his early years.
Sure Rangers got lots of prospects in the hopper but they got a long ways to go to replace DeAngelo.

Seems like:

Trouba, Fox, Lindgren, TDA are part of the core D going forward. Add in Miller this year and whoever Gorton is gonna target as his target trade option/veteran D man.

A future of:
Trouba, Miller, TDA, Fox, Lingdren, Lundqvist is exciting (Most likely need a steady Defensive dman vet as the 7th dman for a team like this)

Rangers, Pens, Habs, & Caps supposedly going after Grabner when his waive is official.

I would love him as a Fast replacement for the bottom 6. Forecheck, wheels, hard worker.
Imagine the speed of a Grabner - Chytil - Gauthier line

The problem with acquiring Eichel is that ties up $10M a year for 6 more years....all productive years (he's only 24), but I think it makes it hard to resign Zibanejad in 2022. So then you basically have the same problem you have now, where you are looking for that other center.

You also will have substantial rises for guys like Fox (2022), Lindgren (2021), Sheshterkin (2021), Lafreniere (2023 - assuming he is indeed drafted), plus who knows on Lemieux and DeAngelo. You could possibly move guys like Kreider and Trouba to help alleviate things, but we could be continually buying people out and having dead space compromising the team's competitiveness going forward.

I like Jack Eichel, I'd be willing to consider the package above - though not sure that Buffalo would bite - but ultimately I'd be concerned that the financials make it problematic..

Is this serious?

From every report out there it starts with the 1st pick. Then I heard numerous roster players. Don’t see it happening.

Kakko is untouchable IMO until you are 100% sure about what his ceiling is. He showed some of his puck possession dominance against Carolina and is poised for a strong second season.

I don't think JD or Gorton give a fukkkk what Quinn wants or likes. Buchnevich is an idiot. He sulks like a two year old when he doesn't score. He takes dumb penalties constantly. He's not a playoff type of player. I see absolutely no way he's on this team next season.

Organization is high on Buch, regardless of your feelings. He is NOT going anywhere this year, unless it brings back a serious roster player.

JD and Gorton are both alpha males and are supremely confident. They have a vision for the future. Quinn as far as I'm concerned is on notice this season. He has done nothing in his time here to put in place a defensive system that works. The coach for the Pack is very talented and if Quinn doesn't show more this year, he's history most likely.

Under Quinn’s watch the Rangers:
• Made the playoffs when no one thought there was a chance
• TDA finally figured it out
• Chytil is progressing
• Gave Lindgren legitimate PT over older stars
• Played the hot goalie despite having a Top 3 Ranger ever on the roster

Sure, he can improve some things. However, I think everyone can say this team plays for their coach. No Ruff, more responsibility & blame for Quinn this year; That’s true. I do believe the organization is happy with Quinn’s results thus far & I have to say so am I.

I’d like to see Quinn coaching this team when it’s ready to challenge for cups when guys like Miller & Barron are established.
