    Kreider typical millenial snowflake. Big fast guy with all the physical talent in the world but he's a mental midget

    Agreed on dealing Kreider. I would really try to use him in a deal to get Trouba or another top pair defensemen.


    He is a solid player but I want no part of him giving him a long term contract after next season. We're talking about a guy who has never topped 53 points in a season.

    Nice deal for Fox.

    Still think they need a number one RHD. Trouba?

    Is Trouba really worth $7-8M a year? He's good but I honestly dont think he's a top pair guy. Either way, very nice deal for Fox. He's a definite 1st round talent and is far and away better then anyone we could have drafted at 37.



    We now have 4 guys in ESPN's Top 50 prospect rankings. Kravtsov, Miller, Shestyorkin and Fox. Soon to be 5 with Kakko/Hughes. Maybe 6 depending on who we get with the Winnipeg pick. I'll be interested to see Pronman and Peters's system rankings this summer. I imagine we are definitely top 5. Possibly top 3.

    I don't know enough about him, but we're already paying Shattenkirk $6.6M, Skeji $5.2M, Staal $5.7M, and $3.6M in dead Girardi money. To add another $7 in Trouba seems like a lot tied up in defense. Of course Karlsson would cost about that too.

    The only possibility to me would be using Kreider in a deal for Trouba. Then after next season when Trouba needs to be signed long term, you could possibly buyout Staal or Smith to clear up some cap space.


    I would not buyout Shatty this summer. He really wasnt bad last year as per the metrics.

    Is Kaapo Kakko fully human?

    He's NHL ready and can beat full grown men

    Hughes isn't there yet but they say when he gets there his ceiling is higher

    I feel like people say that due to position.

    Other than his skating, and Kakko isn't even bad, what does Hughes do thats way better? I dunno, they appear to be on equal footing to me.

    If they both were wingers Kakko would be going 1st.

    Kakko had another amazing goal today.
    I've been following the Rangers more closely than I ever have before - great time to be a fan.

    Hes a better puck rusher and his ability to make plays at top speed is unparalleled in this draft. The former of those two attributes is incredibly valuable, most teams will need 2-4 passes in order to get from their own end into the other one, Hughes can simply skate the puck from end to end on his own.

    I think Kakko is clearly a better player at the moment though. His game has really taken off since the World Juniors.
