    2019-2020 NY Rangers: Oh Baby!

    Rangers avoid arbitration, lock up Trouba for 7 years, $56MM. Got some cap work to do now.

    They need a top 6 center. I'm hoping for Byfield.

    Not feeling the decision to buy out Shattenkirk. It screws us next year big time. Shatty is also still useful and the metrics showed he was one of the better D men last year. Should have traded Namestnikov, Strome and Kreider.

    I'd say buyout Staal but we know he is teflon for some reason.

    With the team Tampa has, they can afford to have Shattenkirk because he could be an important piece to where they are as a team.


    With the Rangers, he did not fit as a piece, unless you wanted him as that veteran voice in the locker room to guide the youngsters along. I hope with this rebuilding going on that you can find a solid veteran to sign a decent contract to help the youngsters adjust to life in the NHL.


    If it's just a bunch of kids on the team, then that can become a disaster.

    Staal should have been bought out. At least Shatty can still play a bit.

    A lot of these vets on D need to go. There are too many NHL ready kids.

    I dont understand the love affair with Staal. No amount of "intangibles" crap we hear about him make up for him totally sucking in every way on the ice.

    It looks like if they bought out Staal, they might have to do some more on top of that. Where as with Shatt, its just him.
    I think the move also indicates that they dont think they are close to being a playoff team next year. With or without Shatt
