EXPECT 1 OR 2 OF THESE PLAYERS IN NYC NEXT YEAR.

SUNDIN, HEATLEY, GABORIK, KOVALCHUK, AND/OR HOSSA.

The NY Rangers have made it clean that big changes will happen this off season. The Rangers know as does the rest of the league that after Jagr left the team… the Rangers have been missing the go-to-guy that EVERY CHAMPIONSHIP team needs. With Gomez, Rozival, Drury, and Redden hurting the Rangers in cap space availability. Look for one of them to be on the move and a BIG name to be headed in.

What seems possible.
Sundin and Heatley or Sundin and Gaborlik

Here is how and why things are bound to change in NYC.

Armchair GM: The Colorado Avalanche

There probably isn’t any team in the league that needs more retooling than the Colorado Avalanche. Yet, oddly enough, they could turn things around pretty quickly the way they are sitting.

They do not have quantity in terms of young talent, but they do have some quality. Kevin Shattenkirk projects to be a top 4 defensemen, and possibly a top 2. He should make an impact this year. They do have their franchise center in Paul Stastny, a couple solid support players (Hejduk, Wolski, Smyth), a top 5 pick, and a lot of salary coming off the books next season.

Leafs Summer….

A couple suggestions on what i think the leafs should do this summer….
