    I don’t see a problem with giving him a 2-way deal. He is insurance. I don’t expect him to be a regular unless there are injuries or the young guys need more development.

    I didn’t realize the QO’s expired so quickly. That means Bigras, O’Gara, and Gilmour only have 2-3 more days to join the fold. Since they have no real leverage, I wonder if that means some or all are thinking about the jump to Europe.

    Surprises me a little as all are N American players, but the Ranger blue line is quite crowded.

    There is a downside to stockpiling prospects. When you are prospect-poor, guys like Hayes and Vesey are eager to join your team as there are openings. When you are prospect-rich, guys like Gilmour feel blocked.

      If they can get $200k, they’re gone; but the only one getting that would be Gilmour. $100k & expenses it depends on the city. €70k & expenses it better be a Capitol.

    Gilmour must be feeling that praise that Pion is better and has almost secured a spot on the team by now.

    Hayes was a freak of nature who broke out as a NHL player who learned how to play center on the fly. The Black Hawks draft pick that had the idea of playing him next to Kane and Toews one day soon. I think he would have made any NHL team out of camp regardless of who was at at center. Rumors had it that his choice to join the NYR’ s and the city of New York was due to one of his family members getting cancer. I think his dad? His competition was another 1st rd pick, JT Miller who had a life long experience at center and had some NHL experience already, that shouldn’t be looked down upon in terms of Hayes competition. Vesey was a completely different story imo.

    If Boo really wants it than that narrative of open spots is there for the taking. People are hyping up Andersson for no reason as if he’s the only competitive hockey player who likes to dig for pucks. Howden could overlap either one of them. Boo better open to playing some wing and take pride in defense and being a difference maker who would get in your face on the forecheck.

    Clearly Boo didn’t quite develop the offensive side of his game as expected, that said I think he’s a very good depth signing and I could see him carving out a spot on the bottom 6 — if not with us down the line, then with another team.

      I don’t know who expected it, hadn’t scored at an elevated rate since he was 15 or so.
