It is with some sadness that the New York Rangers would like to file to release Rhett Rakhshani from the minor league Connecticut Whale. Rhett is under contract with the HV71 squad of the Swedish Elite League for the coming year. In 7 career NHL appearances, the 5 foot 10 inch 24 year old has been held pointless. The speedy winger had high promise as a point per game AHL player, and his presence on the Whale will be missed.

Similarily, we would like to file to release Mike Murphy, a fantastic young netminder, coveted for the depth in goal he brought to our organization this offseason. Mike has chosen to sign and play in the KHL this year, and while his speed and skillset are going to be tough to replace, his age and size make it unlikely that he will return to the NHL.

We wish both players well on their continued journey's in Professional Hockey.

Team sheet is missing Douglas Murray from the Connecticut Whale, he was acquired this off season at the draft and will sit at the top of our Dmen on the Whale for now, Thanks.
To CAR:
Mike Winther

To NYR:
Douglas Murray
CAR 2012 3rd Round Draft Selection


You waived Murray...

And also, how can you not match? Just as Weber had every right to sign an offer sheet, Nashville has every right to match. This isn't the NBA where the player dictates where he wants to go and holds his team hostage. Weber can't have both. He can't sign his "lifetime" contract AND pick where he wants to play. He's an RFA and by exercising his right to an offersheet, he essentially took the cards out of his own hands. It isn't explicit that Weber wanted out of Nashville. His agent said he doesn't want to be part of a rebuild, but that didn't come from Weber himself, and he by no means said "I want out".

It may have just been a tool all along to get paid. Teemu Selanne, Joe Sakic, Mattias Ohlund, Ryan Kesler... would you say those guys didn't want to be on the teams they were on anymore? Weber signing that offersheet is by no means a referendum on hockey in Nashville, but the owner's decision is.

Yes I did, I had an inkling that I waived him and forgot to update my in house stats sheet...oddly though i deleted that part of the post a good 5 mins before you replied to it...;p

Thanks though, much obliged. And sorry for the short term memory loss...haha.

Yeah, just my opinion on the Weber situation. I see both sides of it, of course, and they could very likely sign him, but I don't see that happening, and I don't see him happy there if they do. Trade demand would be 1 year and 1 day away.

I can't see the Preds matching and trading him later on, they would have paid him $26M before they would be able to trade him.

That being said, I think they do match and hang onto him. They still have a pretty damn solid team without Suter.

Wow, according to TSN, the deal is Artem Anisimovand Brandon Dubinsky, defenceman Tim Erixon and a first-round pick going to Columbus. for Rick Nash.

What a deal for NYR, they are going to be very scary next year, but with that being said, the growth of young star Chris Kreider may be stopped because NYR also needs to find a spot for Gaborik when he comes back. But overall, great deal for New York, Howsen should be fired.

Yeah, this deal seems anti climactic with all the talk of how Columbus would want tons to move Nash. The Jackets do get some good young players just not nearly enough to make up for Nash. On a side note this Flames fan is smiling at the fact that Tim-I wanna play in New York-Erixon is getting shipped to Columbus lol

Found this pleasant note on J Moore, COlumbus Dman that occupies a spot in my future plans for the Rangers.

Columbus defenseman

John Moore

was a minus-20 in the second half of the 2011-12 season. Moore also struggled offensively with only one assist in the last 26 games so fatigue may have been a factor as the 21-year-old was expected to play in the AHL all season but instead led the Blue Jacket rearguards with 67 games played. He had two goals and seven points this past season but look for him to become a 35-40 point player eventually in the NHL as the former first round pick has plenty of offensive potential. (

Source:

Columbus Dispatch)


This nice piece on him with the 'scoring by committee' comments lead me to think Mr. Moore will be a beneficiary of the trade, perhaps paired with a stellar defensive minded partner for the coming year. Hopefully his conditioning this off-season improves dramatically. In any event, I am glad to have him in my organization, to potentially offset what may be a couple key retirements from the blueline.

Well, its official folks.



Nashville Predators Match Offer Sheet To Captain Shea Weber

Tuesday, 07.24.2012 / 2:51 PM / News

By Press Release - Nashville Predators




Nashville, Tenn. (July 24, 2012) – In the most important hockey transaction in franchise history, Nashville Predators Chairman Tom Cigarran, President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile and CEO Jeff Cogen announced today that the team has matched the 14-year, $110 million offer sheet between the Philadelphia Flyers and defenseman Shea Weber, insuring that the Predators' captain will remain with the franchise for the next 14 years.

Posted ImageThe decision to enter into the largest contract in franchise history was made by all parts of the organization, including ownership, hockey operations and business operations.

As the organization analyzed the overall situation and worked toward a conclusion, the decision boiled down to three questions:

- Was Shea Weber the individual that this franchise wanted to lead our team, a team that would compete for the Stanley Cup every year, for the next 14 years?

- Would matching the offer sheet be in the best long-term interest of the team and organization?

- Would a decision not to match the offer sheet send a negative message to current Predators players and other NHL organizations, a message that the Predators would only go so far to protect its best players and be pushed around by teams with "deep pockets?"

The answer to each of the above questions is clearly “yes.” The organization spent the last several days analyzing all aspects of the offer sheet, from economic implications to the impact on the team hockey operations puts on the ice.


Most importantly was the reaction to whatever decision the organization reached and the impact it would have on our fans, sponsors and marketing partners. We wanted to insure that our decision reflected not just the feelings of these groups but also conveys a strong message to them that our actions would speak for us and demonstrate our commitment to them. It was absolutely essential that they understand and believe that we are doing everything possible to ice a Stanley Cup competing team each and every season.

With this decision behind us, we continue to focus on our mission: Develop Bridgestone Arena into the number one sports and entertainment facility in North America with a Stanley Cup-winning Nashville Predators team as the centerpiece. With Shea Weber in the fold for the next 14 years, we are closer to this mission, and will continue to contend for the Stanley Cup on an annual basis.

Cigarran, Poile and Cogen will be available for a media conference tomorrow at 1 p.m. CT on the Bridgestone Arena concourse to discuss the organization's decision.

There will be no further comment from the Predators until Wednesday's media conference.

WOW, I am personally shocked, but with the very good arguments I read in this thread for why they should or rather had to sign him..I will stand corrected on my prediction. I am just shocked right now. First thought is they trade him in 12months time, but we will see how he reacts to the long term situation i guess. Glad the owner decided he had deep pockets.

Grats to the Preds and their fans. I hope things continue in the right direction.

I think they've made the right move.

Also, congrats to Colin Wilson on his 3 year contract extension this morning, we feel it will be a steal for the Preds, and a big part of our group moving forward.

Owners...about 12 of them, iirc.

I was expecting them to sign.and then trade him. I suppose that's still a possibility.

Owners...about 12 of them, iirc.

I was expecting them to sign.and then trade him. I suppose that's still a possibility.


I just can't see Nashville trading him after one season, since they'll be cutting him a few cheques worth $27m within that calender year...

What a giant gamble Weber and his agents took. And it looks like it didn't pay off in terms of playing where he wants to play. And while it paid off monetarily, he'd have hit the jackpot as a UFA next year anyways.

Hopefully for Nashville's sake, he doesn't pout. Oh well, if he does, 14 years isn't such a long time...
