Seems weird because the Rangers not only aren’t in them, but missed them by a wide margin. It wasn’t even close. They swan dived off a cliff. But that doesn’t mean the week has been slow. Alain Vigneault, Daryl Williams, and Scott Arniel were all shown the door. Ilya Kovalchuk appears to be on his way to New York. Alexei Bereglazov is having his contract terminated. As usual, I have some thoughts.

First the new news, as Bereglazov was placed on unconditional waivers to have his contract terminated. I’m not surprised by this, and neither should you. When he didn’t make the team out of camp, he eventually went back to Russia. This was the logical next step, as it’s clear he’s nowhere near the top of the depth chart, even with a new coach.

Bereglazov is the newest news, but not the most impactful news. The rumor that Kovalchuk is coming to New York has significantly more impact. The rumor is that the deal is 2-3 years at around $6 million. When the rumor broke on Monday, I was a little surprised. The Rangers are rebuilding, so signing Kovalchuk seems odd. But now that I’ve had time to digest and read some takes on it, I’m not overly concerned.

First and foremost, this isn’t a risky signing. The Rangers need someone to put pucks in the net, and Kovalchuk can do that. But more importantly, they need someone to teach Filip Chyil, Pavel Buchnevich, and the next wave of potentially elite players how to do the same. If he signs (he can’t until July 1), then he would be the only player on the team who can do that.

Another thing with Kovalchuk is the trade value. Assuming he can still score, and assuming the Rangers remain outside of the playoffs next year, then there could be teams willing to pony up a decent amount for him. The Devils did the same with Jaromir Jagr, eventually trading him for a pair of picks at the deadline. They used those picks o grab Kyle Palmieri. It’s just a route the Rangers can take.

His thought process is antiquated, his systems are the same, and he’s just another spoke on the wheel of recycled coaches. I wish I could predict what Jeff Gorton had on his mind regarding Ruff, but I honestly have no idea. If he’s in line to be the next coach, I’m starting a mutiny.

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 12:25 pm

        This does indeed get lost in the narrative, sometimes, it seems. That deal was definitely about to be trouble for all parties involved. While I’d say that it was not a purely altruistic measure on behalf of Kovy to want to go back to Russia by any means, it did actually work out pretty well for the Devils in hindsight to be able to get out of that situation, as well.

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 12:57 pm

        It wasn’t the CBA, but that the Devils were hemorrhaging money and new ownership that was coming in didn’t want the contract on the books, so they cooked up this and the Clarkson deal.

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 7:46 am

    I think another thing with Kovalchuk is he’s played with Rykov and Shestyorkin in the KHL. One of the rumored reasons the Devils were willing to trade Rykov to us was their concern of whether or not he would come to North America. Having familiar faces in North America can help alleviate that concern. Buchnevich has played with them too. Kovalchuk connection with a group of our young prospects could end up making him valuable to us in many ways beyond just scoring goals.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 7:53 am


      Along with your thought process, Kovi could be an assistant coach, or somehow work for the organization upon retirement. Just think back in the late 50’s and early 60’s, the Brooklyn Dodgers saw the light, and found many young Latin players both in PR, and the DR, and were one of the first teams to bring them here in numbers! Kovi could be our Russian contact, and or coach, where the kids from there wouldn’t be so concerned about coming here in the first place!!!! Just a thought??????

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 9:21 am

        just a great thought Walt. I was looking at what’s in front of me…you were looking 3 steps ahead. You are the Zen Master! He could help us keep a pipeline of young Russians coming into the system for years to come.

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 9:21 am

        That’s a really good point Walt. Even Drury (who wasn’t here that long compared to other players who we had for nearly a decade), stayed with the front office of the club and moved into the assistant GM position after he retire. Good thought.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 4:47 pm

      KHL will have a hard cap of $14mm in 2019-20(with one star exemption) that drops to under $10mm(with 2 exemptions) the following season.

      These players(besides Kovy) will make more in Hartford than the will even for SKA. They’ll make more on their ELC than they would in their Russian career.

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 6:25 pm


        That’s interesting stuff. Could you see a glut of new players coming our way, meaning to the NHL???

        • Apr 12, 2018 at 7:02 pm

          The KHL has relegated 2 teams to the MHL, going to do another 2 by 2020.

          They normally don’t do long term contracts there, but it seems like every contract for someone over the age of 20 has their contract ending either this year or next. The NHLPA will have a wave of Russians looming on the horizon just in time for a decision to extend the CBA.

          • Apr 12, 2018 at 7:27 pm

            Wow, that really could put the NHL management in the drivers seat should they try to bust the union, or play some big time hard ball with the association!!!!! That may not be a very good situation for the players I would think????

        That was a fun game to watch. Also caught some of the Jets and the Wild which was another good one.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 9:28 am

      Leather, we are agreeing a lot lately—Gallant is a good coach, as is John Stevens. Gallant got a seriously raw deal in Florida when they canned him, and in Vegas he has proven without a doubt he’s a top coach in this league. And Philly is famous for running good coaches out of town, Stevens & Laviolette are just two of many.

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 10:04 am

        To this day, I have no idea what Florida was thinking with Gallant. Granted, I have not researched it a ton, to note…but even before the success of the Knights – actually, before Gallant was even named coach of the Knights – I never really understood Florida’s front office thinking on that whole deal.

        Off-topic: LOL, Flyers. I expected PIT dominance, but I don’t know as I expected THAT much PIT dominance.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 11:55 am

      I loved how it sounded like a bug getting splat on the glass after every check. The glass bangers in Las Vegas were savages.

      I don’t know what happened since 2013 but it felt like I don’t hear that to often anymore.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 3:57 pm

      Gallant is a players’ coach and that works out perfectly with a team full of vets — usually.

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 8:45 am

    Will Tavares “betray” the Islanders by signing with the Rangers? I kinda hope so. Also, I really don’t think Kovalchuk signs here without a NMC, which we should avoid … definitely if it’s more than 2 years. I think if he wants to come to NY, he would want some control of his future. Especially at his age.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 11:12 am

      I could see Tavares pulling a Stamkos, personally. Use the market to drive NYI as high as his agent thinks they will go, and re-up, with no real intention to leave having ever existed. Who knows what his priorities and thoughts are, though. If he highly values contending for a Cup soon above all else, or if he wants an unconditional NMC for the life of the contract and NYI won’t go for that, etc., he may be fully prepared to move on no matter what they offer for money. I won’t be crying into my coffee as I read the headlines of the Rangers signing Tavares if they do, so long as the money is reasonable enough (as reasonable as any mega UFA deal is, anyway)…but I don’t at all think it is the right move right now. There will be others in the near future; Tavares is not like a once-in-a-lifetime-chance at the next Gretzky. Great player, but other similarly great players will be hitting UFA when the Rangers know more about who they are and what they need to complete the puzzle.

      As for NMCs, worst thing a team can do. Problem is, it has become expected to a degree not only for superstars who are like 26-28 when they hit UFA (which is the limit that, philosophically, they should be strictly reserved for IMO), but also even the next tier down of good if not elite players (as us Rangers fans know all too well). I’d do anything I could as a GM to avoid the NMC, personally. I don’t even really like unconditional full-term NTCs…but specifically to not even be able to send spent/severely struggling players down…ugh.

      These exist though, and once something like them are out there and common in the game, very hard to get them back out of the game. Players’ unions will shit bricks over efforts to phase a player perk that has become common back out of the game, regardless of how damaging it is to the teams and their balance sheets. One truly bad NMC deal could single-handedly cripple some franchises who don’t have the money to spend to the cap limit for years.

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 8:57 am

    I know many have been debating a possible Tavares signing. I kind of doubt that he is inclined to come to the Rangers, but if he is, I would rather that the Rangers pass on him. I’d rather that they sort out what they have this coming season and perhaps land one of the UFA’s who will be on the market in 2019. Tavares is going to cost a boatload of money and he will insist upon a NMC and about 7 years. I would prefer they spend it on a stud defenseman at this juncture and let some pieces fall into place.

    As far as coaching is concerned, I agree with the ‘no retreads’ sentiments. Get a young coach with experience with young players and let the team and the coach grow together.

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 9:27 am

    Hire Keefe, sign Evander Kane and Greg Pateryn and maybe Pat Maroon, Pateryn and Maroon on short deals….thats all the toughness you need.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 11:18 am

      I want no part of that locker room cancer Evander Kane.

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 12:18 pm

        I’m not fully under-no-circumstances against Kane, but there definitely will be safer UFA options for similar production coming up in the next few years. Gorton has mentioned character multiple times that a mic has been put in front of him since the rebuild started. Seems it would be quite against the grain for them to seriously be looking at him at this stage.

        • Apr 12, 2018 at 6:58 pm

          Kane is a poop in a locker room and on ice, no thanks

          • Apr 12, 2018 at 7:30 pm

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 10:14 am

    I was hoping when Gallant got fired the Rangers took him and fired A.V. but that ship has sailed

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 11:02 am

    I agree we need someone who can deal with the youth. We need someone that can deal with the Russians. The Best Person for that job is Mike Keenan! There is no one better with the Russians and with the Rangers.

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 11:43 am

    Two things: One, the Kovalchuk rumor is a rumor. That signing was already a speculation, so for somebody to put the rumor out there in the hopes of saying I told you first is not a stretch. It may happen, it may not, same as last week.

    Second, there are dozens of ways to rebuild. There are many timetables. A full commitment total rebuild was never in the cards. Such a rebuild requires a Lundqvist buyout. You simply can’t keep the central character from the team and declare it to be a new team. [Ranger brass rightfully assesses I think that the fans base would not accept such a move; certainly BSB’s commitment to the rebuild does not extend that far.] I see the key to the present philosophy is the acknowledgment that the Rangers are not close and want to build a sustainably good team. I.e., you don’t trade your top draft choices and best young prospects for that missing piece. And you don’t cripple yourself cap-wise. Do not compromise 2022 and 2023 to bolster 2019 and 2020.

    But that doesn’t mean you don’t try to put together a good team next year. Get young players, develop them well, but you needn’t play them in the NHL until they are ready. Players need to learn a lot. One thing is humility – you don’t learn that via an unmerited trip to MSG. One of the best motivators is trying to show you belong.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 12:28 pm

      Regarding Kovalchuk: I am afraid that it might take more money to sign him than he is worth and a longer contract than they should offer.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 12:49 pm

      Like I wrote earlier in the week, that rumour was likely Kovy’s agent floating a trial balloon.

      GMJG has shown he understands the nuances of the CBA where Slats did not, so the idea of Kovy getting anything more than a series of 1 year deals is unlikely.

      *GMJG values flexibility above all, something a 2-3 year deal inhibits.

      *GMJG can’t offer full value for Kovy on a multi-year deal per above. With 1 year deals, he can offer up to $2.85mm in performance bonuses, plus extend him for year 2 on Jan. 1st under similar terms where they could up the signing bonus(or they hold off on the extension until the trade deadline. )

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 1:07 pm

      If you’re still trying to rebuild in 2022 or 2023, you’re doing it the wrong way. By that point, the guys you draft this year will already be out of their ELC and you’ll be running into cap issues.

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 2:34 pm

        You can pay good salaries to good people. The key is to have a steady stream of ELC players on the roster to lower the burden. So you build the 2022 with these young players and more young players to come.

        • Apr 12, 2018 at 4:11 pm

          Again, if you’re still rebuilding and not contending after year 4(which is more like year 5 w/ the drafting of Chytil &Andersson) then you’ve failed as a GM and probably unemployed(except at MSG or Montreal.)

          Guys like Hayes, Kreider, Shatty & Fast have all aged out of their prime, Shestorkin will be off his ELC along with your 2017-2018 picks and prospects you picked up at the trade deadline.

          • Apr 12, 2018 at 6:20 pm

            The plan would be to win the Cup in 2022 and 2023, not to still be building. And mostly you win the Cup with a balanced team, not 20 guys on ELCs – or no guys on ELCs.

            I really think the key to success is to not have a lot of silly rules. Trying to win a Cup with Shesterkin on his ELC is like trying to win in Lundqvist’s window – just adding an extra hurdle.

            I believe what JG wants to do is to be as competitive as possible as quickly as possible with the single caveat that you keep one eye on the future .

            • Apr 12, 2018 at 7:04 pm

              Hence my comments above.

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 2:51 pm

    We are only 6 solid players and a coach away from being a contender next year. I think the make-up of those 6 includes a first round pick forward, a stud defenseman and 4 others. Those 4 can be UFA’s or trades.

    We need a sniper and more team defense too. I suspect Gorton builds the team with picks and UFAs. I just want to use the CAP space intelligently.

    I cannot see another purge next year, unless players like Hayes, Zibby and Krieder really disappoint.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 4:07 pm

      It’s hard to gauge how many “solid” players we still need. We have to see a full year of a healthy Shattenkirk, ADA, etc. — plus the development of Chytil, Andersson and perhaps one or two of the recently acquired prospects. Most importantly we need to see how THIS team reacts to a new system. The biggest change is dropping AV and his particular philosophy, especially how it relates to the defense. Until then I’m loath to claim we’re 4, 5, 6, 7, etc. players away from being a contender.

      • Apr 12, 2018 at 4:43 pm

        Just trying to make the point that a first round pick and Kovi won’t get it done. We need guys who are major steps up from Carey, McLeod, Desharnais and Holland. Those players are rarely ready if they are second round picks, so we need to make some real changes (read additions) if Gorton wants to contend next year. I suspect nobody in the organization wants another year without the playoffs.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 8:08 pm

      6 solid players means that you’re 2 years away as a new coach, new system means you are going to start off rough those early days of next season.

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 4:35 pm

    For those hoping the Rangers can get Trouba from Winnipeg, I’ve got bad news: The Jets will have almost $20mm in cap space headed into next year and only 2 RFAs that will cost them serious money(Trouba & Hellebuyck.)

    The only way Trouba becomes available is a sign & trade(but Jets are sorta stacked with prospects right now) or the arbitration hearing goes so badly(well north of $6mm) the Jets walk away

  • Apr 12, 2018 at 7:03 pm

    1. Please no Kovi, he was barely moving feet in a KHL PO, after not intensive season and not intensive Olympics, dude can not play 82 games on level way bellow, he will not be able to keep pace here, and about veteran presence in a locker room….. he is russia Koshelchuk (packet-chuk)

    2, No E Kane, this dude professional trouble in locker room and outside it, and also he is not a guy, who is going back to deffence

      Sorta fair point on Kovy running out of gas, but he’d been playing most every other night from Mid August and the Olympics.

    • Apr 12, 2018 at 10:15 pm

      Kovi doesn’t need to fly. He still has magic hands and nearly Ovechkin level shot.
      Rangers need someone to hit corners and not middle of goalie’s chests.

  • Apr 13, 2018 at 10:58 am

    We need to stop”Russian” to think we need to sign Kovy to a contract. I would stay away from making the same mistake we have made signing aged players in the past. Some worked out, but many don’t. Stick with the younger guys and maybe sign Tyler Seguin and a slew of other younger prospects available, if possible. Forget about Tavaris, it ain’t happening. If Kovy goes for a 1 year contract, then it is conceivable.
