Vessy would be a good signing. We should know soon. Hope he comes to the Rangers. I think he could fit in good with the young guys, like Hayes, Kreider and Miller. I think he could make the team.

Great news, Tony. The Rangers have speed up front and guys who can score.


Their most glaring weakness now is the aging D. Can Girardi come back 100% from his kneecap injury? After that puck to the face 3 years ago Staal seems to have slowed way down. Is Shattenkirk still a remote possibility?


All eyes are on Gorton. He must have impressed Vesey because the Bruins really wanted him.


LGR!

Ah Yes, Joe, spoken like a true Devils Fan. LOL, but you left a few things out.


McDonagh 27 yrs old (not old at all)


Staal 30 yrs old (not old at all)


Klein and Girardi 32 yrs old, getting there, but not over the hill by any means, just more experience.


MciLrath-24 yrs old, still young


Skjei-22 yrs old, just a baby


Holden 22 years old, just a baby


Clendening 24 yrs old, still young.


John Gilmour 23 yrs old, still young.


Joe  you have to get your records straight before you post on the Rangers Board, we Ranger Fans, the greatest fans in all of sports are on top of everything when it comes to hockey and the NY Rangers. I could add a few more guys on D in our system that have many years to go Joe, but I will leave it at that for now. LOL

Rangers sign another forward, Brandon Pirri to a 1 year deal. He averaged 80 points in 166 games.


Gortons planning something and it rhymes with cash.

I like this kid Pirri. More Depth on forward. Could mean Dominic Moore is in trouble?


I know there are many Ranger Fans, that want to see Nash traded. I am not one of them. There is no way I want to see the Rangers get rid of Nash.


Now, just this once I will say this about Nash, if the Rangers can get something for Nash which will really make the team better, then go for it, but IMO, I don't think they could,. 40 goal scorers are not easy to come by in the NHL today. I admit, we all want more from him on offense, but I still say, AV needs to use him for what they went out and got him for. Remember his first season, when we were all calling him a beast. Well that's because he was used on the ice as the go to guy. And if that's what AV wants to see, then play him that way. He should be made aware of this by treating him and playing him like the go to guy, and the game breaker. And that's by making him you number 1 line player 5 0n 5 and on the power play. The last two season, he has used him more as a top defensive forward.
Av needs to stick with him, and let him know he is the guy. Last season, guys like OV, the punk Crosby, and Tavarase had terrible starts, but they sill were the go to guys. And then they turned it on. I just don't like the way AV has used Nash. How many times last season, have you seen Nash, not even get any time on the Power Play, and when he did, it was on the second unit, and little ice time. 


Lot of Ranger fans are trying to make him out to be a big mistake, well he had more points last season in the short lived playoffs then most Rangers. He played hard and gave no excuses, and never once said, why me. AV has done nothing but move him from one line to another. He also takes him out of his game by using him on his off wing. The guy is a right wing who shots righty, leave him there. Get him a good center to set up plays for him and put his size in the front of the net on the number one power play, he is being wasted on the bench during power plays. He has not had much time in the playoffs with the CBJ, and he was there go to guy during the season and was their leading scorer. Why, because he knew he was the go to guy, and the guy they depended on to get the big goals.

I blame a lot of the lack of big time goals from Nash on AV. And I am not the only one.

This is a quote from another big time Ranger Fan.

"The past few years Nash was moved to left wing due to the presence of aforementioned top-6 right wing teammates St. Louis and Zuccarello, and I believe it effected his game. I think it would help Nash if he were moved back to right wing where he is most comfortable and familiar, and leave him there."

Also I read this, Your talk about Nash has merit. A friend of mine was watching an NHL tonight segment and Scotty Gomez was on the show. He mentioned that the coaching staff wasn't using Nash effectively.

Getting rid of Nash would be a big mistake for the Rangers

Isn't Moore already gone?

Yeah, Moore is an unsigned free agent.


As far as Nash, I happen to agree with you Tony. He is a power forward that can do it all at both ends of the ice. For some reason the fans never warmed up to Nash like they have Zuucs. I can't explain why. I guess Zuccs is more comfortable in front of the camera. I think the only way Gorton can get an upper echelon D man is by giving up an elite forward who can score, defend and kill penalties and Nash is it.


If Shattenkirk is still singing the Blues next month keeping Nash and his high salary won't bother me at all. He's that good and worth it. We still have an aging but effective Klein. Since Girardi and Staal are big question marks I'm confident in Skjei's and McIlrath's abilities. Why AV doesn't trust Mcilrath is anyones guess.


I'm beginning to think AV is the one to be traded. After what you posted it appears AV is hampering Nash. He comes close in the post season but no cigar wherever he coaches.


Good news. Only one month to the preseason!
