  1. Sticky: Anyone know/have some idea on what the price for...

    Anyone know/have some idea on what the price for Ryan O'Reilly (rumored to be available) might be. I'd be all about that. They'd never be able to fit him under the cap, but I wonder what Colorado...
  2. Sticky: I dont know that you would necessarily want Staal...

    I dont know that you would necessarily want Staal now. Hes 30, going on 31, and is now 4 seasons removed from his last 30-goal campaign. Plus that huge cap hit, and the high price they'd have to pay...
  3. Sticky: He's actually an intriguing option. Great size...

    He's actually an intriguing option. Great size and plays pretty physically. Former 1st rounder, which fits with Slats, so he has some skill. Never been very productive, so he's been a 12-14 minute...
  4. Sticky: He was definitely noticeable and a factor last...

    He was definitely noticeable and a factor last night. And he was pretty good in Boston too. He's a decent player, it's just too much contractually.

    Last night was the kind of game they needed....
  5. Sticky: Classic let down game. Hot team, first game back...

    Classic let down game. Hot team, first game back home after west coast trip, vs big divisional rival. Teams lose games like that pretty often. Not overly concerned.
  6. Sticky: I know its early and there is half a season left,...

    I know its early and there is half a season left, but Im impressed. And it isnt the wins.

    They just look and play f***ing hungry. They got a taste last season, they know what it takes, they're...
  7. Sticky: If Staal is after a payday north of 6-6.25, he...

    If Staal is after a payday north of 6-6.25, he can get it. I don't think its far fetched to speculate that some team out there would be willing to pay him approaching 7 per.
  8. Sticky: No player ever takes a discount in NY. Taxes and...

    No player ever takes a discount in NY. Taxes and cost of living are stratospheric. In fact, you always hear about NY teams "over paying." They don't. They simply have to duke a guy a bit extra to...
  9. It's a serious possibility, dealing Staal. They...

    It's a serious possibility, dealing Staal. They don't want to, and I can't see how they'd replace him, so they'd have to get a top-4 LH defenseman back.

    I'd prefer Skinner over Tlusty if Miller...
  10. Yes. I think they'll make a big push over the...

    Yes. I think they'll make a big push over the next 2 months to retain those guys, chief among them Step, Staal, and Zuccs. I do think though, that the cap will make it difficult to keep everyone, so...
  11. I know right. Kid is a franchise defenseman. ...

    I know right. Kid is a franchise defenseman.

    They've done very well in the draft lately it seems. Ekblad, preceded by Barkov 2nd overall in 13. Plus, Huberdeau in '11 @ 3rd overall. Huberdeau was...
  12. Tough guys will more or less be gone from the...

    Tough guys will more or less be gone from the game in a decade. With the cap, concussions, and the unfortunate death of guys like Derek Boogard, that players role will change coming up through...
  13. Interesting to see that, especially regarding AV...

    Interesting to see that, especially regarding AV pushing for Glass. I can't recall having seen or heard that prior. Explains why he's played so much.

    Miller has been very good since the recall,...
  14. I can't really see them moving Stepan at all, but...

    I can't really see them moving Stepan at all, but any deal including him would have to bring back a center. Much as I love Taylor Hall, they're so loaded on the wing that I think the priority would...
  15. Gold medal game is January 5th, so shortly after...

    Gold medal game is January 5th, so shortly after that at most.

    They're doing the right thing with him. It's a great tournament and great experience for him to have.

    Hayes looks like hes a...
  16. Tampa under any circumstances is a bad match-up...

    Tampa under any circumstances is a bad match-up for the Rangers. And Bishop has their number. They haven't been good in any of their games Tampa, and in truth they're not really in any kind of form...
  17. And teams are really seeing the value of skill...

    And teams are really seeing the value of skill throughout. It makes coaches not only willing, but able to roll 4, which is essential, IMO. It hurt the Rangers in 11-12. Whether unable or simply...
  18. Im not sure there's a mindset of "Oh, we can turn...

    Im not sure there's a mindset of "Oh, we can turn it on." Too many vets and a veteran, high quality coach. I think its just a case of inconsistency, stemming from injuries and playing guys who...
  19. Clearly they havent come together yet. They...

    Clearly they havent come together yet. They haven't had they're full team together yet. They're still very much integrating new guys, a number of whom are rookies. Hank has been good, not great, and...
  20. That he did. But they did pay too much in the...

    That he did. But they did pay too much in the deal for St. Louis, but at least they got an extra 2nd rounder back.
  21. I think Sly, there are too many instances where...

    I think Sly, there are too many instances where Kreider hits guys that are prone, vulnerable, or defenseless. Or at the very least, he's right on the line of those things. You can't argue that there...
  22. I see them making every effort to retain Staal....

    I see them making every effort to retain Staal. Unless his demands are ridiculous/impossible to meet, I see them getting a deal done. If not, I think he gets dealt at the deadline, in which case,...
  23. Kreider needs to take a step back and really...

    Kreider needs to take a step back and really watch himself. There seem to be an increasing number of questionable hits and bad penalties he is taking at this point. He's lucky he didnt get whistled...
  24. To correct you Sly, RNH is in his 4th season. He...

    To correct you Sly, RNH is in his 4th season. He missed 20 games as a rookie, and year two was shortened due to lock out. so in those two seasons, he only played 102 total games.

    He's still under...
  25. He'd totally be worth looking into, but they're...

    He'd totally be worth looking into, but they're not moving him and he'd cost a kings ransom.

    The Oilers messed up. Haven't hired the right coach yet for those kids, and they've gotten very little...
