Drury must be Tortorella's messenger

I don't know if this is the best pairing with Torts and Drury. I like both of them however can not see this working out well for either of them and more importantly the Rangers. Reason being: The relationship he had with an easy going captain from Tampa Bay...we all know how that ended (I know after they won a cup). But the question remains has Torts learned anything from that experience?  (Jul 20, 2009 | post #7)

Rangers sign Callahan, trade Korpikoski

Hmmmm...I'm curious to know where you heard that? I checked the majority of the hockey sites on the www and found nothing to support your claim. And the Rangers have only approx. $7 mil in cap room and Tanguay is looking for a 3-4 year deal in the ballpark of about $10 mil or so.  (Jul 14, 2009 | post #13)

Tavares puts on his skates for Isles mini-camp

There's a few reasons: 1) We added only 1 scorer who's not even proven a thing in the NHL yet 2) Same d-men and they're all injury prone and little to no depth yet. 3) Still only one #1 goalie who knows with DP and no proven back-up 4) No Enforcer  (Jul 10, 2009 | post #33)

I hate to say this but you're worng. We don't have that good a farm system. We're still under-sized and full of mostly good to really good players. We're lacking those great to excellent players. I have a feeling this season will be more of the same from last year in order to continue to stock pile what we need...great talents. But I think we're most certainly headed in the right direction!  (Jul 10, 2009 | post #25)

Practice is open to last year's season ticket holders. We have the choice of one of three days either today, Monday, or Tuesday. I was told that there will be Isles sales reps to renew the plans for this year and i'll dig around to find out if there will be any public viewings of practice and get back to everyone as I'll be there Monday to watch.  (Jul 10, 2009 | post #24)

Islanders' Tavares scores in first game

Oh they're moving if they don't turn it around? Thanks for clarifying I thought it was because of the strangle hold SMG has on them with the ridiculous lease oh and that ol' barn that's clearly out dated. Whew, I'm sure glad you cleared that up for me, I was worried for a second. Little do you know that they're getting closer to the Lighthouse...sigh  (Jul 9, 2009 | post #48)

Oh and one more thing Kallur, when your team's in the nursing home we'll be a consistent contender after developing a young core, a young team not a bunch overpaid, "hasbeens "  (Jul 9, 2009 | post #24)

Really? Sather made insightful moves? Redden, Gomez, Drury, Rozsival, Gaborik...insightf ul moves? I'll be the first to tell you the DP thing was moronic; but just like we got out of the Yashin deal we can work something out to rid DP if/when necessary. We needed depth at goalie, we drafted 2 young goalies. You needed scoring, Sather added someone just as injury prone as DP. We needed defensive help, we signed Streit. You needed defensive help, Sather signed and overpaid Redden and Rozsival. Shall I go on with this? Staher's a monkey with his head up Dolan's you know what! So anytime you want to have this conversation that Sather makes more insightful moves vs Garth's "obvious " moves. Bring it on  (Jul 9, 2009 | post #23)

No **** Sherlock....he didn't play more then 10 games. And the other guys yea they're AHL goalies...back ups. Good ol' Steve Valliqute didn't win either nimrod! So what's your point? Do you honestly think the Ricky Dipstick thing bothers me? I hate the guy! So NO! But your kindergarten intelligence level does but you're a Rags fan so that explains a lot. Keep up your KC thing it's cute..too bad they're not going to end up there.  (Jul 9, 2009 | post #22)

Theyre in the running for Tanguay and Calder however as is they already have a completed roster of 22 and the max is 23 barring any injuries it would take time away from the developing kids so you have to choose wisely here. Tanguay may take some pressure off of Tavares but may not be a long term solution even though he's only like 29-30 I believe.  (Jul 9, 2009 | post #14)
