Who can take viagra As the 3pm deadline approached, who can take viagra Glen Sather waited out his old buddy Brian Burke. Who can take viagra The Toronto GM was quoted as saying he wanted a first round draft pick for winger Nik Antropov. Who can take viagra As the clock wound down, who can take viagra he ended up trading him to the Rangers for a second round draft pick and a conditional draft pick.

Who can take viagra Antropov (6-6/230) is a 29-year-old former Maple Leafs 1990 first round draft pick (10th overall). Who can take viagra While he fits John Tortorella’s wish to add size, who can take viagra Antropov is known for his finesse game as opposed to his physical game. Who can take viagra In 63 games this season, who can take viagra he has 21 goals and 25 assists with 6 power play goals and 24 PIM. Who can take viagra If you are a big believer in plus/minus stats (which I am not), who can take viagra one concern is his minus-13 rating. Who can take viagra However, who can take viagra for his career Antropov is a plus-54 in 509 games – to go along with 125 goals and 166 assists with 27 power play goals and 477 PIM.

Who can take viagra The newest Ranger forward set career highs in goals (26), who can take viagra assists (30) and power play goals (12).

Who can take viagra Here is Antropov’s scouting report from TheStar.com:

Who can take viagra ASSETS: Can line up at all three forward positions. Who can take viagra Plays with poise and patience. Who can take viagra Owns good vision and two-way smarts. Who can take viagra Works hard and has impressive size and reach.
FLAWS: Is so big that he could still stand to play more of a power game at the NHL level for a greater impact. Who can take viagra Is prone to mental lapses on the ice. Who can take viagra Lacks natural goal-scoring ability.
CAREER POTENTIAL: Top six forward.

Who can take viagra With the deadline looming, who can take viagra Sather then turned to his former assistant Don Maloney in an attempt to revive the Rangers moribund power play. Who can take viagra The Blueshirts acquired defenseman Derek Morris for Dmitri Kalinin, who can take viagra Nigel Dawes and Petr Prucha. Who can take viagra Sather had to pay a heavy price for Morris because his newest defenseman carries a $3.95 million contract. Who can take viagra The only positive is that Morris is an UFA at the end of the season – the same as Kalinin and Prucha. Who can take viagra Dawes will be a RFA.

Who can take viagra In addition to the Maloney connection with the Coyotes, who can take viagra the Rangers have a Phoenix connection in their front office as well. Who can take viagra Mike Barnett, who can take viagra former GM of the Coyotes, who can take viagra is an advisor to Sather.

Who can take viagra In 57 games with Phoenix, who can take viagra Morris has 5 goals and 7 assists with 24 PIM, who can take viagra a minus-13. Who can take viagra The biggest knock on Morris is that he is coming to New York to revive the Rangers power play; however, who can take viagra he has exactly zero power play goals this year.

Who can take viagra The 30-year-old Morris (6-0/220) has scored 35 of his 76 NHL goals on the power play. Who can take viagra He also has 256 assists, who can take viagra 778 PIM and is a minus-27 for his career. Who can take viagra Morris’s 2002/2003 season was his career best with 11 goals (9 PPG) and 37 assists with a career best plus-16 rating.

Who can take viagra ASSETS: Possesses a well-rounded package of top-level skills, who can take viagra specifically an excellent skating stride and booming shot from the point. Who can take viagra Is very strong and aggressive along the blueline.
FLAWS: Has a tendency to lose his concentration in the defensive zone and give the puck away at the most inopportune moments. Who can take viagra Must learn to better harness his aggressive nature.
CAREER POTENTIAL: No. Who can take viagra 2 defenseman.

Who can take viagra Yes at first look it seems that the Rangers gave up too much for Morris, who can take viagra but when you look at it, who can take viagra the trade was really Dawes for Morris. Who can take viagra Kalinin is a wash because Morris replaces him in the lineup and was going to be kicked to the curb as a free agent. Who can take viagra Prucha is a tough loss, who can take viagra but he is in the same situation as Kalinin in that the Rangers are not going to re-sign him. Who can take viagra Dawes’s inclusion is the reason why Phoenix even bothered to make the trade – even though he will be a RFA at the end of the season. Who can take viagra

Who can take viagra With Antropov and Sean Avery added to the lineup, who can take viagra the Rangers had to make room among the forwards – hence dealing off Dawes and Prucha. Who can take viagra The problem I have is that Morris is living off his 2002/2003 season. Who can take viagra It is a stretch to think he is going to help the power play much – there is a reason why his only power play point is a lone assist. Who can take viagra I would rather have seen Sather go after Cam Barker, who can take viagra but it would have cost far more (Bobby Sanguinetti and/or a draft pick added to the package) and Barker makes nearly $3 million. Who can take viagra I would even have preferred Jordan Leopold (who still has an upside compared to Morris) or Steve Montador who would have added a physical presence and a shot-blocker.

Who can take viagra As for the Antropov trade, who can take viagra as long as the conditional draft pick is in the range of what the Pittsburgh Penguins gave up for Bill Guerin, who can take viagra then it was worth a shot given the fact that Slats still has an extremely inconsistent draft record – recent success notwithstanding.
