RUMOR MILL

Thursday - December 5th

Per Elliot Friedman of Sportsnet:

Prior to the December 1st deadline, the Oikers apparently tried again to move Jesse Pujljujarvi, and the Rangers were reportedly one of the teams interested.

The trade would have involved Lias Andersson going the other way, but ultimately they could work out a deal.

Gaborik has come to broadway and is on pace for alltime goals record

1/4 Of the Way And STILL A Lot Of Work To Do
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 9:02:55 PM - November 24, 2009

The first 1/4 of the season has brought Broadway what was expected. The Rangers paid alot to bring in a great goalscorer, and he has not dissapointed. King Henrik hasn't stolen many games to date, but always gives the Rangers a chance to win every game. Secondary scoring has been a problem, but Tortorella seems to finally have a clue about what each of his players capabilities are. Avery has been very quiet in this first 1/4 a season but the last game may have shown that when the coach has faith in him, he will produce.

The defensemen have been as advertised except for Del Zotto. He is far and above better than most could have even dreamed of. At his young age of 19, he is a LARGE part of the powerplay and his natural abilities show on a nightly basis. Gilroy also has the offensive upside(like Del Zotto) that at times reminds fans of Leetch-like moves. With Leetch in attendance at the Columbus game at the Garden, Both rookie defensemen showed Leetch what it was like when he was playing and scored on great rush to bring the Garden Faithful out of there seats with a highlight reel goal. Staal is finally being told by the coach to refocus on his shutdown defensive game. Coach Tortorella wanted Staal to become an offensive defenseman but has come to the decision that with Del Zotto and Gilroy (along with Sanguinetti on the way), he has enough for the rush forward and needs the shutdown type defenseman that Staal can be. Girardi has been steady even though sometimes caught out of position even though his shotblocking has been relentless. Now for the $11.5 million problem. Redden has become a $6.5 million 3rd pair defenseman and Rozsival is a $5 million 7th defenseman. With the older defensemen NOT playing well, the young defensemen are left to learn by trial and error. Bringing Leetch onto this coaching staff would be a great help for the young d-men. Just having Leetch in the arena gave them the confidence to show off some great moves.

Gaborik just has the magic touch. Usually players that have played in the Western conference come to Broadway and are a shell of the player they used to be. Gaborik looks as good as the player I saw score 5 goals against our beloved Blueshirts in Minnesota 2 years ago. Prospal is playing like a man posessed and made a great move for himself and the Rangers after being bought out by Tampa Bay. Kotalik has a monster shot from the point but is a minus with his defensive play. Dubi, now injured, has become a second line center. Avery has been quiet but hopefully his 2 goals against Columbus will kickstart him to get his edge back. Callahan has got to play better, just leave it at that. Anisimov is getting stronger day by day and might just be set between Avery and Lisin(just getting his speed back from a fractured foot). The fourth line of Brashear(my opinion the offseason biggest mistake by Sather), Boyle(just a bigger version of Betts), and Voros(doing much better in his fights this year) are there to bang the other team around and to try not to get scored upon. Parenteau has been a great addition and his talents should have him as a top 9 forward in the NHL.

The King Lundqvist hasn't been his dominate self, but with the young defensmen in front of him, that has to be expected. He will play less NHL games this year due to the Olympics, but he should at least add to his NHL record 4th 30+ win seasons to start his NHL career. Valiquette is a great lockerroom player and isn't that much of a dropoff when he is between the pipes.

The Rangers are right where expected at this point in the season. There will be many peaks and valleys and it will be up to the coaching staff to keep the peaks longer and the valleys to a minimum. This Rangers team isn't built for the regular season, but when the playoffs start, but a hot Lundquist, Gaborik, and confident young defense CAN make a solid run for Lord Stanley.
