    Teams are overreacting, trying to get more size after Florida won the cup. Buffalo just gave away a scoring machine because he’s 5 foot nine. Kid is stocky though like St. Louis was. I like McLeod as a role-player, but not for that kid. You telling me Drury couldn’t have traded Kakko like I said for him and a left-handed defenseman? Mind boggling.

    I assume all these questions about where Drury was, and why didn't Drury didn't make the trade are rhetorical questions at this point...

    Kakko is better than McLeod every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Buffalo has been trying to get him. Knowing full well the dumbass Rangers didn't develop him correctly like Lafreniere. Lafreniere is overcoming it.

    I still think we’re going to miss Goodrow unless a kid really steps up.

    Adam got married, hopefully that doesn't affect him negatively like it has with Zibanejad.

    Emily Kaplan of ESPN revealed on July 9 that Trouba blocked that trade from happening by including Detroit in his 15-team, no-trade list, thus vetoing his move to the Red Wings.

    “There was a deal in place with the Red Wings, I am told, and Jacob used the power he earned in his contract to block it, and that’s within his right,” Kaplan said while appearing on TSN’s Jain Onrait show. “So, unless something changes now in the next three months, where something makes sense for both the Rangers and one of the teams not in Jacob Trouba’s list, he’s going to come back to this team and we’re going to see what type of captain he is and also how strong the leadership is for the New York Rangers because this was a really awkward and uncomfortable situation behind the scenes.”

    No way in hell he stays captain. Give the C to Trochek. He has earned and deserves it way more.

    Captain or not, the bottom line is it's messy, and the Rangers haven't done sh*t this offseason. But you keep doing you Drury.

    I am not going to dignify your ignorant childish nonsense with a real response. Learn how to be an adult, please.

    Didn’t you JUST blast Drury for not making a move and getting Savoie? Which is it? Drury is good or Drury is a moron? Typical dumpy…talking out both sides of your ass.

    Drury clearly had something in mind for FA day given that he asked for Trouba's trade list early. Who knows what would have happened with that cap space. Maybe Stamkos, maybe other moves would have followed to create more room. You can blast Drury for having no backup plan to clear space (at least no plan that has materialized yet), but the current situation is simply not all on him.

    I am all for ripping that C right off Trouba's chest. The guy sabotaged a trade to his own damn home state. If he turned in his list on July 1 I have no doubt a trade to DET would have been permitted. Maybe Drury overplayed his hand by asking for it early, but Trouba has thrown major sand into the gears here.

    I don't love our roster right now. Not many areas we have improved. But I am not going to keep blasting the GM in post after post until I see how he pivots and uses this deadline. It is all about the playoffs. One way or another, this is the last run we will have Igor on a team-friendly deal and Laf on a cheap bridge. After this year, the cap situation changes dramatically.

    I give up on Drury. I expect nothing from him so if he does do something good I’ll be pleasantly surprised. If he shits the bed again at least I won’t be surprised this time and disappointed. Too much other shit going on in life right now to really care about this team and franchise that’s owned by a pompous asshole who never holds people accountable.

    I saw some rumor that Buffalo has had conversations with Drury about Trouba and he may be willing to go there.
