    lol Good old Rucinsky. How many times has he been a Ranger now? Three? He’s always fit in pretty well here.

    why?… just.. why? Why can’t they stick to their plan? for just five seconds… I mean really… What will this guy do other than eat up minutes?? I could see maybe adding a good true defenseman… perhaps a good checker.. but a scoring winger who doens’t score much or who (at least I think) wouldn’t be a very good teacher, I don’t get it… is he suppose to “help” Jagr or something? cause I doubt that will work out…

    cool, i always liked him. I think he played on Jagr’s line on the Rangers pretty successfully (tough to remember because it was 15 years ago). Solid plus/minus and always played hard. So first line is Rucinski/Straka/Jagr i think, or will Nylander play w/ Jagr??

    1) Building around Jagr (Straka, Rucinsky, Nylander)

    2) They all came in for not a whole lot to form two respectable scoring lines.

    3) You would be killing the youth by throwing them on the top two lines.

    Rucinsky has been reliable with the Rangers on both ends of the ice, and the Rangers need LW’ers.

    Rangers need Lwers, exactly what i was gonna say,

    but i’d like to see rucinsky play with balej. yea

    Only a one year deal, not like they are married to him. Rangers need some bodies.

    I guess they are planning to get the big guys either next year or at the trade deadline.

    thats what i want to see

    if not then

    Good signing by the Rangers.

    Can’t say for sure who Jagr’s linemates will be but if I’m not mistaken, Rucinsky and Straka played together this past year for the HC Lassenberger Plzen in the Czech Republic Extraleague. So those two will probably be together, and since I doubt they’d put Jagr with Nylander and Lundmark / Balej, it looks like (as of right now at least) that the first line will be Rucinsky Straka Jagr.

    I’m gettin excited again! =P
