NOTE TO RANGERS DEFENSE… GO GET LEETCH

Boston Rumors has them given up on making the playoff’s this year and soon a fire sale on the horizon if it stay’s as bad as it’s been for Boston this season.

And for the Rangers According to TSN.ca in Detroit

Darius Kasparaitis didn’t play after mildly spraining his knee in warm up’s bumping with Dominic Moore and had to be helped off the ice.

Do I smell a legend coming back to NYC?Leetch is on his last year on the contract in Boston…. where the team might look to fire sale some players soon.

Rangers could use someone still at the point on the power play to quarterback…

This might be the best chance for the Rangers to nab him, they don’t even have to sign him after this year. Just bring him back to give the Rangers a Shot in the arm.

It’s true if Kasparaitis goes down for a little over 4 weeks the Rangers could find themselves in a small amount of Defensive trouble.

The point on the Power play is still horrible. And Messier got lucky during his Retirement night that the rangers even won, because they gave up two shorthanded goals that almost cost them the respect for messier and the 2 points. How did they score those shorthanded goals? simple… No one on the Rangers can move the puck into the zone on the power play the right way without giving up a turnover. And what everyone knows is Leetch can get it in the zone when he’s in the zone.

Leetch and his Ranger Blue Blood will be the only fit right now for this team which lacks that Power play quarterback.

From what I know Pock will be given a chance to show what he has and from what most have told me he is a good young kid who can take the quarterback roll. But if he can’t over these next 2 weeks and Boston is still 10 points out of the last spot and struggling I can’t see why Leetch can’t be had for very little.

    So who centers the first and second lines?

    – Straka, who is not a natural center on the first?

    – The slow and defensive minded Steve Rucchin on the 2nd?

    – Break up the OHM line and put Moore as the 2nd line center?

    The problem is just a lack of throwing pucks on the net, and having players on the top 2 lines that will go there and deflect pucks. One would figure with the amount of contact between a defender and a forward in front of the net decreasing due to the new rules, the players that would never be seen there in the old NHL would be going to the front of the net like flies on shit and taking advantage of the new rules.

    We just need a gritty forward who can score. Nashville’s Greg Johnson is a good 2nd line center. I like Olli Jokinen, but I don’t see Keenan moving him, as he is a Keenan prodigy, despite what the rumor mills say. If Bobby Holik would ever find himself again and wasn’t so expensive, I’d say bring him back. If the Islanders are looking to move Mike York, there’s your guy, but I highly doubt they’d swing a trade with the Rangers.

    HAHA, I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU JUST SAID ROZSIVAL AND EXCELLENT IN THE SAME SENTENCE.

    What a mockery.

    Rozsival is GARBAGE. I’ve seen more botched plays that look like mistakes made in pee-wee hockey from him than Max Kondratiev, and Kondratiev at least had SOMEWHAT of an excuse, being a rookie. Rozsival is a seasoned veteran, he has no excuse, and has been absolutely horrible. His passes and vision are an atrocity, you can time his movements with a sundial, and although he has a lazer of a shot, he couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn on a good day. This guy is pathetic, just waive him and let him clear. At least with Rozsival off the ice, we’ll have someone else that can play a little better defensively. It’ll never happen because Rozsival and Jagr are butt-buddies and Jagr will get pissed and not be happy and play like shit.

    Please tell me you’re looking at thefourthperiod.com where they forget to tell you the actual remaining salaries, and forget to make the splits for players who have two different teams paying their salaries, persay: Jagr’s 4/4 split between the Rangers and Caps.

    If that’s your source, you’re about 4 million dollars off. Sykora has well less than half of his contract left, so even with Sykora’s salary, they’re not even close.

  4. GretzNYR99 says:

    I’ve said Brendan Witt for the last 2 years now, but no one has listened.

  5. Beckfan5 says:

    Rucchin has been centering the second line most of the season. And with Jagr among the league leaders in assists, does it matter if Straka is the first line center? At least he shoots!! Unlike Nylander. If they get rid of Nylander and some how Poti, I see these line combos;

    Ruchinsky-Straka-Jagr

    Prucha-Ruchin-Sykora

    Neimminen-Betts-Ward

    Hollweg-Moore-Ortmeyer

    Malik-Rozival

    Leetch-Strudwick

    Kaspar-Tyutin

    People *****ed for years about them playing Holik on the top two lines and now you want to bring him back for that role??? Id rather see Straka in that position.

  6. Beckfan5 says:

    “His passes and vision are an atrocity”

    Who set up Jagr with the game winner the other night against Edmonton after blocking the homerun pass up the middle?

  7. Beckfan5 says:

    And who do they give up for that sloth.

    Fourth period.com is a joke of a site

  9. GretzNYR99 says:

    People *****ed, I for one, about Holik playing the FIRST LINE when we had LINDROS.

    I’m sorry, but Rucchin is too slow for a 2nd line role, get him as a checking center and limit his ice time so he doesn’t lag on the backcheck.

  10. GretzNYR99 says:

    One good play…

    Who let up 2 goals at the Garden against Philly simply by being caught out of position and caught sleeping?

    Who runs around in his own zone like a chicken with his head cut off?

    Who gets caught high and then makes a half-ass effort to get back?

    For every good play you name, I’ll come back with twice or three times as many bad ones. It means I won’t have to be typing a whole lot.

  11. GretzNYR99 says:

    Where on TSN? Because I couldn’t find it.

    I went to NHLPA.com and looked up by teams, and our exact number is 35,757,200. I double-checked and everything.

    So our cap-space is 3,242,800.

  12. GretzNYR99 says:

    Oh and I forgot, since we’re paying half of Sykora’s salary, the number is more around 4 or 5 mill.

  13. GretzNYR99 says:

    That sloth?

    He’s better defensively than almost any defender on this team. The only defender that’s played better than him for us this year is Malik.

    If Sergei Fedorov could be had for a flaming bag of dog shit, then we could have Brendan Witt for next to nothing.

  14. Gretz99NYR says:

    Leetch? Leetch who? That toddering bum from years back, Mr. Minus,plus minus?

    O plz, The boyz have hardly started streching thier legs in warmups this season, they are nearly ready to let it all hang out and REALLY dish out “THE D”. Poti would never consent to this anyway, so scratch the whole silly notion.

  15. Sands says:

    Yeah I knew it was about 4 million free in cap space. I just didn’t feel like fighting with and idiot. Thanks for the help.

  16. Sands says:

    DUDE I GOT LIKE 2 MORE POST’S UP WRITEN AND READY TO GO ABOUT LEETCH WANTING TO COME HOME. hahahah

  17. GretzNYR99 says:

    Not a problem, bro.

  18. PaulK123 says:

    RANGERS WILL NEVER GET LEETCH BACK!

    THE LEAFS WILL GET HIM BACK AND THE LEAFS WILL WIN THE CUP!

    THE RANGERS SUCK SO MUCH THAT THEIR BEST PLAYER DIDN’T EVEN WANNA BE CAPTAIN!

    SENATORS ALWAYS CHOKE IN PLAYOFFS!
