Per the HNIC panel

Booth + Ballard + 1st probably not enough to get him, but likely the only way we can fit him in the cap.

See my status.

Edit: And I don't see a fit either, Rangers will want the Moon and Gaborik has a monster cap hit for next year.

I just can't see it working out.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

no cap space available for a small, injury-prone, overpriced, one-dimensional winger that doesn't seem to care.

So it was just MacLean trolling about Gaborik's vancouver house purchase from a few years back?

Don't we have enough players with high cap hits who float defensively and do not play with any heart at all?

Yuck, 7.5m cap hit for an underachiever on a line with Richards/Nash. Not to mention he couldn't stay healthy in a rough and tumble Western conference when he was with Minny. I wish I could say he's great on paper, but even that's a stretch.

Rangers are probably looking for picks and top prospects, and I for one am not interested in giving up Jensen + 1st for a season and a half of Gaborik.

Rather trade for a Centre, one that is big, skilled, like Couturier.

Or if we're giving up the moon, try a deal with Philly to get both Schenns.

No kidding. I hated CDC when that was happening. Gabby over the Twins?! So damn stupid.

We do not need another winger.

God I hope this isn't the case.

I realize we're struggling for secondary scoring, but we need another soft forward about as much as we need another 6th or 7th defenceman.

unless the Rangers take Booth and Ballard, i dont see it happening... but I would love it if we land him.

His cap hit is big, but he only has a year left after this season. If things work out, we get a 40 goal scorer, if not, we can trade him on next years TD. Alot more teams will show intrests next year when he will be a UFA. Win/Win situation for us if we get him.

There should be a thread about what Elliote mentioned earlier: that MG is working the phones about a center.

Much more pertinent to the team.

Gabby would be perfect on this team. Would give us two first lines like all the other great teams and help make our power play a threat to score on either unit. Cap would be tricky tho.

The ONLY way it works is if the Rangers hold back some salary - which they won't.
