    Yea Motte is a good player. They should def sign him if they can. I would give him 3y 2mil. He can get 10-15g in the bottom 6

    Reports are that Dubois isn't signing a long term extension and wants to go FA. That to me is I don't want to stay in Winnipeg. Just doesn't work with his salary now and what he will want.

    Hopefully they can get at least a 3rd rounder for Georgiev without maybe having to let him walk. They could always package him as an add-on in some bigger deal i suppose too.

    Interesting article in the Post on Kakko, I agree he'll get the 1-2 yr/2-2.5 mil contract and the Rangers will see what happens from there but with Cuylle and Othmann waiting in the wings Kappo better get cracking. I have more of a problem with Strome than GG when it comes to the game 6 decision, Ryan was an incredibly selfish pos to insist he was ok to play knowing he wasn't.

    Othmann and Cuylle seem to have the size, skill and game that translates to the playoffs. Honestly, I think they will look to deal Lundkvist, Georgiev and make a team take Nemeth in a deal for a young center with upside. I like McLeod on Edmonton. I think he could be perfect for us a 3rd line center. Smith is ancient. They need a legit PP QB on defense. I can't see how Edmonton doesn't do that deal. They get a young goalie who they can rely on as long as their defense isn't total garbage. A future PP QB. They won't add much money. Then if they want to sign Kane they need to move one of their vet d-men. We'll take Smith back in return to make the money close and give us a backup for one year.

    Still no announcement from the Rangers regarding injuries. Maybe not that uncommon but for there to be no news about Fox is a little puzzling to me. If he wasn't injured in any way that is a huge concern for me because he really looked awful for not-so-short stretches of time during the regular season and playoffs.

    I read that Kreider had successful wrist surgery and we know about Strome and his pelvis injury

    Sounds like Drury is talking with Loseipeg already about Dubois.

    Well now Brooks is against Dubois. He thinks Chytil is the second coming of Bergeron. :blahblah:

    while I disagree with his assessment of Chytil, I think he is right to point out Miller and Lafreniere coming up for renewal after the season and the challenges we’ll have with fitting everyone under the cap.

    if NJ gave Hughes $8M/yr then you know Lafreniere is going to be expensive, even if he’s not as further along offensively.

    I agree with you about Fox Grevv. I would trade Fox and his large contract for another #1C. There is no doubt about his offensive ability but he lacks the size and strength to be effective against aggressive forechecking. He will get stronger as he gets older but he isn't going to get bigger. The window of opportunity has finally reopened for the Rangers, now is the time to make moves to address weaknesses and get that Cup.

    Thats a tough call. He certainly has high value and rightly so. But with how worn down he looked at times it is really concerning. Makes me think he has 2 to 4 years before he is spent.

    Fox and Makar are the same size. Fox has almost just as many points per game too. He had 63 assists last year. Unless they are trading Austin Matthews he will be a Ranger for a long time. Congrats to Jack Johnson. He was banished here but good enough to play the whole season and playoffs with Avs and win a cup

    Points are good but you had to have seen the noticeable difference in how Fox looked compared to Makar in the playoffs. Fox looked tired, slow, worn out and tentative. Thats why I was convinced he was playing hurt. If there was no injury that's a pretty big red flag for me.
    Makar was a beast in every round if not every game.

    Fox may need to work more on his skating and overall conditioning.

    Im not advocating for the Rangers to trade Fox just yet but I think it's pretty clear they have to get deeper on D so they don't lean on him, Lindgren and Miller so much. Those guys will still likely be playing 22-24 minutes a game but if they can add or develop another young d-man to play with Schneider they can mitigate the wear and tear on Fox and Lindgren during the season.
    Getting a 2C still the priority though.

    Gauthier 1y re-sign and Kakko bridge deal close. I'd be surprised if it's less than 3m but maybe just based on his stats. Strome and Copp are going to test FA.

    If Gauthier could only finish and hit consistently he’d be a $7 million player a year
