As with many Rangers teams during the past couple of decades, they are ON PAPER the best but never seem to pull it all together (other than of course in '94). Maybe with Jagr gone, they can put it together?

The same as above can be said about the Sharks.

I think you still have to go with Detroit as the 1#.
Only big off season changes for them was to Add Hossa. In a word, they are "Slick".

Yes they are. Wow, they should win it all...but I love the Sharks D with Boyle and Blake (but especially Boyle).

Tell me about. Watching Sharks games has made me envious of the Boyle addition.

Consider this one: if you had known that Meszaros was going to be gone, would you have traded him and a pick/prospect for Boyle? 'Cause I sure would have, in a heartbeat... even if I don't particularly like how long Boyle's contract is.

Nothing against Picard, the 1st first, and Kuba, but Boyle would have fixed a lot of problems on the backend in a hurry, for now and for some time to come.

I really hope we sign a guy like Bouwmeester sometime in the next 10 months or so...

Yeah your definitely right about that... I think in hindsight that is a trade I would have made.. But as we say life goes on.. I'd definitely be dissapointed if we didn't at least make a major pitch for J-Bo.....

Me too. I was advocating that move when Boyle was being offered around. Diddle...he's sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good and he patrols the backend on PPs like a killer.

TB must be all franked up to have let him go. I just don't get it.

Murray didn't do it...because of cap space, is that what it was? He felt it was too expensive I think? 6.7 million - Kuba's 3.0 - Picard's 0.9 - 2.0+ million we have to spare - perhaps minus someone else that costs a million - and you have a 70 point D-man (that's how many Diddle points Boyle will get this year).

Why? Why I ask? Why......Sad

I think Murray...or sorry , Melnyk didn't want to tie up that much money in a Dman when our Goaltending is still so suspect. I, for one, agree with that. No point in having Boyle or anyone if shots are going in from every angle...

you look at Goalies around the league that could come available...

Look at how Lehtonen would only sign for 1 year....he wants out of Atlanta
Look at Bulin (Trade deadline only so the $$ works)
Look at Backstrom in Minny

all free agents next year...the year AFTER is of course better, but wouldn't it be worth it to finally go into the playoffs with a stud back there?

I go to sleep every night praying, that one day, maybe it will come true... If i really really want it, and I try really really hard, maybe it will just be my lucky day! LOL

No contest right now, not even with SJ until they prove otherwise, Detroit is the BEST in the league by far.

I like the Sharks this year. I can't argue that Detroit is the best team, but with Boyle and Blake on the backend...it makes them very, very different - and a heck of a lot more confident.

I think Detroit loses a 7 game series against the Sharks - if they don't choke-a-doodle-doo that is.

Me too Tukker. I'm (slightly) convinced that they can go all the way this year.
