RUMOR MILL

Wednesday - June 26th

Elliot Friedmman of Sportsnet, reports that the Avalanche weren't willing to include the 16th overall pick to the Rangers in exchange for Chris Kreider.

Wonder who else wasn't willing to include a first rounder for him. Part of the problem of course is his UFA status next year, and then the expansion draft after that.

If Bettman wanted better hockey-go to Olympic Point System

Does The NHL want Attendance or BETTER Hockey?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 1:51:27 PM - March 12, 2014

With the General Managers in Florida meeting with League Officials on "how to make the game better", all they have to do to is give the players and coaches a REASON to play 'all-out' hockey for the regulation 60 minutes. Now that the season is drawing to an end and every team is fighting for every point, most teams are willing to play it to a draw, grab a point and hope they get the extra point in either overtime or a shootout. The days of seeing teams play "wide open" hockey are a thing of the past because of the way of the points are given out for wins(2 points) overtime/shootout loss(1 point) or regulation loss(zero points). So it would make sense that most teams are happy to get every game into overtime and hope for the 'bonus point'.

In a league where rules are changed because players and coaches learn ways around the rules, there is one sure way to make teams try to win in regulation, especially this time of year. Go to the Olympic scoring system for games completed of 3 points for a regulation WIN, 2 points for an overtime/ shootout WIN, 1 point for an overtime/shootout LOSS, and 0 points for a regulation LOSS. It is just that simple! The ONLY reason I can see that they haven't gone to that already is that they are more concerned about the attendance figures! Right now their are a bunch of teams within reach of the playoffs but by the Olympic scoring system the same teams that are now only 2 points out(right now 1 regulation/overtime/shootout win) would be 9 points out(3 regulation time wins) in the Olympic method. Washington right now is only 2 regulation/overtime/shootout wins behind the Rangers where in the Olympic scoring they would be 7 regulation wins and an overtime/shootout win. With Washington only having 15 games left, it would be very possible that their attendance would take a hit with them so far out of a playoff spot. As of right now, the Penguins are by far the best in the Metro Division followed by the Rangers 74pts, Columbus and Philadelphia 73pts, Newark 71pts, Washington 70pts, Carolina 65pts, and Islanders 59pts.  That puts Rangers, Columbus,Philadelphia,Newark, and Washington within 2 games of each other. THAT is what keeps the fans in the seats and glued to the T.V.'s.

In the Olympic scoring it take a drastic change! The 3(regualtions wins)-2(overtime/shootout wins)-1(shootout/overtime loss)-0 (regulation loss); 

The Penguins would still be the runaways in the division 36-8-4-17 for a toal of 128pts.

The Rangers would still be 2nd at                                 30-5-4-27 for a total of 104 pts.

Columbus still in 3rd at                                                29-5-5-26 for a total of 102 pts.

Philly in 4th at                                                             28-5-7-25 for a total of 101 pts.

Newark in 5th                                                              21-8-13-24 for a total of 92 pts.

Carolina would jump to 6th                                           23-5-9-28 for a total of 88 pts.

Washington would drop to 7th                                      19-12-10-26 for a total of 81 pts.

Islanders in 8th                                                            15-10-9-33 for a total of 74 pts.

While the Penguins, Rangers, Blue Jackets, and Flyers would all still be fighting for a playoff spot, the other teams starting from the Devils downward would already be 3 regulation wins and an overtime/shootout loss out of a spot compared to the 1 overtime loss they are now only behind. So it comes down to, does the league want to reward the team that wins in regulation the way hockey was originally made, or do they want the fans in the seats??? We all know the answer to that one!

********************************************************************************************

The Rangers are now 2-1-1 since the deadline deal of Captain Callahan (who allegedly turned down the 6 year-$6 mil per year; same as reported here in last blog weeks ago )  and the Rangers were lucky enough to bring in Martin St. Louis from Tampa. Even with the offensive prowess of St. Louis, the Rangers showed no signs of offense against the Hurricanes last night which is baffling!

********************************************************************************************

The Rangers extended Dan Girardi for the next 6 years at $5.5 mil per. Seems the Rangers added a year and $100,000 per year from what I reported in my last blog weeks ago; according to what my source said. Great deal by BOTH sides.

********************************************************************************************

It is reported in the N.Y. Post that Anton Stralman has turned down a 3 year at $3 million per year extension by the Rangers that later was refuted by Stralman's agent. Don't forget, Stralman struggled with going back to Sweden before his last contract and his play as of late has NOT been worth $3 million a year. Hopefully John Moore can fill that role and either Dylan McIlrath or Connor Allen will make the jump into the lineup next season.

********************************************************************************************

In the AHL, the Rangers farm seems to be getting their act together. At the start of the season, they were going with all the kids but they had to tweak the team somewhat and bring in a solid vet goalie along with a few dmen and forwards to stabalize the team and the Ranger prospects that should make it to the Blueshirts have taken off! Oscar Lindberg, Danny Kristo, Jesper Fast, and suprisingly Ryan Bourque and lead the team as some of the top scorers. Dylan McIlrath will never be confused with Ryan McDonagh, but he will bring the toughness on the backline that the Rangers need. Next year should easily see at least 2 of these players replace players already in the NHL.
