    OFFICIAL: #NYR have acquired a third-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Jimmy Vesey.

  • Anyone have a good stream for TSN or SportsNet’s coverage? Can’t seem to track one down this year…

    All signs are pointing toward the NYR landing Artemi Panarin.

    • Yep – they are now all quacking about it. Looks like it is a done deal. Richter you can come back now 🙂

      Let’s hope that we did not, well I was going to say overpay, but that goes without saying.

      I would imagine JD did not go for the Isle misdirection play

    • If this is true, I’m really gonna miss Kreider. But, I see the desire to bring in Panarin to help get the Russian kids going. It will be nice to watch the Rangers in the playoffs again.

  • Florida really overcompensated for losing out on Panarin with that ghastly deal with Bobrovsky

    • I think they were going to pay that to Bob all along, with Luongo retiring they needed a #1G badly … personally I think they could have found a cheaper, younger option — probably not quite as good or as sure to be good for the first few years like Bob.
