Unless Kasper plays like he did in his prime, we dont want him on the team, eating up $$$$$.

A healthy Kaspar is a great thing - more banging at the Garden. An even healthier Kaspar is an even greater thing - cap room when the Icelanders overpay to replace their non-existent defense. Either way, a win for the Rangers.

I think Kasper is done, but would be a HUGE bonus to the blue shirts if he can come back healthy. Great to see excitement over hockey in NY again.

kasper would definately help the blueline as a 3rd line defenseman. we need the hard hitting Kasper to keep other teams honest at the blue line. Kasper plays like a north american defenseman, although he is from Russia. the Rangers need that north american D. Malik needs to go, too slow and not tough enough for his size. Stall needs to play now or he will end up like evry ranger #1 pick, nowhere!

Teppo's been around for ages it seems. I remember when he was on the Winnapeg Jets. Teppo was always a solid D-man. Kasper is no Teppo

agreed......and if my memory serves, that kasper conny was given around the time when the rangers were THROWING MONEY at players. I think Holik got 10 million a year then.......WOW. Darius is gonna be buying a one way ticket to hartford.

Teppo broke his toe last year or something and was out for most of the season.

There's still a chance some team needs D and will take a chance on Kasper. He showed up to camp in great shape.

So, we'll see.

Too bad Kasper looked like crap in the game against the Devils. I think its safe to say, he'll be in the AHL.
