Overnight delivery cialis Today is a rather special day for three reasons. Overnight delivery cialis First off, overnight delivery cialis anyone suffering from paraskevidekatriaphobia knows that today is Friday the 13th, overnight delivery cialis so beware of guys named Jason wearing goalie masks. Overnight delivery cialis Secondly, overnight delivery cialis on November 13, overnight delivery cialis Felix Unger was asked to remove himself from his place of residence; that request came from his wife. Overnight delivery cialis Thirdly, overnight delivery cialis and most importantly, overnight delivery cialis November 13 marks the 13th anniversary of Ranger Ramblings!

Overnight delivery cialis Back in 1996, overnight delivery cialis I was a member of a Rangers e-mail discussion group. Overnight delivery cialis Dubi Silverstein of Blueshirt Bulletin fame used to provide recaps for the games. Overnight delivery cialis I had the opportunity to fill on November 13. Overnight delivery cialis At the end of the recap, overnight delivery cialis I included my own observations under the headline of “Ranger Ramblings”. Overnight delivery cialis Kara Vitale, overnight delivery cialis who runs Ranger Fan Central, overnight delivery cialis asked me to write a column and the rest is history.

Overnight delivery cialis Since I have experience filling in, overnight delivery cialis I thought I would take this time to help Glen Sather and “fill in” as GM for a few minutes – and given the Rangers recent woes – there is no time to waste.

Overnight delivery cialis First off, overnight delivery cialis I realize that the Rangers need to get out from under the horrible contracts of Chris Drury, overnight delivery cialis Wade Redden and Michal Rozsival. Overnight delivery cialis Most fans would simply banish all three to Hartford and be done with the contracts. Overnight delivery cialis Unfortunately, overnight delivery cialis that is not going to happen for two reasons. Overnight delivery cialis

Overnight delivery cialis To begin, overnight delivery cialis Drury has a no-movement clause in contract that forbids the Rangers demoting, overnight delivery cialis trading, overnight delivery cialis or even waiving him without his permission. Overnight delivery cialis Secondly, overnight delivery cialis the Rangers are not going to park $14 million worth of contract in the AHL this season. Overnight delivery cialis While the Rangers could buy one or all of the players out, overnight delivery cialis there are still cap implications for the future that would leave some of their salary on the books long after they are gone. Overnight delivery cialis As an example, overnight delivery cialis the Islanders will carry parts of Alexei Yashin’s contract on their cap through the 2013-2014 season.

Overnight delivery cialis On the plus side, overnight delivery cialis there are some things that can be done. Overnight delivery cialis First off, overnight delivery cialis the Rangers need to admit their mistake in signing Donald Brashear and look to give him away in a deal or send him to Hartford. Overnight delivery cialis Brash’s $1.4 million salary is a drop in the bucket to Cablevision so parking his contract in the AHL is no problem. Overnight delivery cialis The Rangers could do the same to Aaron Voros, overnight delivery cialis but at $1 million, overnight delivery cialis the Rangers could live with that – especially factoring in his friendship with Marian Gaborik.

Overnight delivery cialis The next way to free up some salary space is to place Brandon Dubinsky on the Long term Injured Reserve list. Overnight delivery cialis Players on LTIR must miss at least 10 games and 24 days in order to qualify. Overnight delivery cialis However, overnight delivery cialis their salaries do not count against the cap while on LTIR. Overnight delivery cialis Given that Dubinsky is out anywhere from 3-6 weeks, overnight delivery cialis the Rangers could possibly save a minimum of $250, overnight delivery cialis000.

Overnight delivery cialis These savings, overnight delivery cialis along with the Rangers estimated cap space of $700, overnight delivery cialis000, overnight delivery cialis gives the Rangers about $2.4 million to spend in an attempt to replace Dubinsky. Overnight delivery cialis Of course, overnight delivery cialis the Blueshirts can’t use all of that money because it would give them no flexibility for the rest of the season. Overnight delivery cialis Believe it or not, overnight delivery cialis that isn’t even the biggest problem.

Overnight delivery cialis The problem facing the Rangers is finding a player who can help the team now in Dubinsky’s absence and also help the team when he returns. Overnight delivery cialis Taking a quick look at players who might available does not give on much hope. Overnight delivery cialis There are fourth line center types like Adam Mair and Marty Reasoner, overnight delivery cialis but they are hardly replacements for Dubinsky. Overnight delivery cialis heck, overnight delivery cialis I am not all that sure they are replacements for Brian Boyle when you factor in the salary increase.

Overnight delivery cialis Mike Comrie (Edmonton) and Robert Lang (Phoenix) would nice replacements both on the ice and salary cap wise as each player is on a one-year deal (Comrie at $1.25 million and Lang at $1 million). Overnight delivery cialis The problem is that the odds are against the Oilers and Coyotes looking to dump salary at this point in the season and it probably isn’t worth overpaying for either player.

Overnight delivery cialis The Rangers could improve their trade position if the decided to move Christopher Higgins and his $2.25 million contract, overnight delivery cialis but not that many teams are going to be lining up for a player they might be able to sign on the cheap as a free agent coming off a disappointing season. Overnight delivery cialis

Overnight delivery cialis Given the cap constraints and factoring in the kind of players available, overnight delivery cialis the Rangers best alternative is to do nothing. Overnight delivery cialis They should still enact my cap saving plan (demote Brashear and LTIR Dubinsky) so that the Rangers have cap space in reserve to make a trade or two at the deadline.

Overnight delivery cialis As for replacing Dubinsky, overnight delivery cialis the Blueshirts should roll the dice and call up Evgeny Grachev and throw him to the wolves. Overnight delivery cialis On MSG’s season preview show, overnight delivery cialis Coach John Tortorella said he was not afraid to play the kids – and he has shown that by playing Matt Gilroy and Michael Del Zotto. Overnight delivery cialis Torts should go the full monty and give Grachev a chance to sink or swim. Overnight delivery cialis In 15 games at Hartford, overnight delivery cialis Grachev is averaging nearly a point a game (five goals and eight assists).

Overnight delivery cialis No offense to P-A Parenteau (who was recalled with Dane Byers getting sent back to the Wolf Pack), overnight delivery cialis but I believe Grachev should have gotten the call and placed on the first line with Vinny Prospal and Marian Gaborik. Overnight delivery cialis This would give the Rangers their best opportunity to see if Grachev is the answer this year. Overnight delivery cialis If he is, overnight delivery cialis then the pressure is off as far as the Rangers having to make a trade now or at the deadline.

Overnight delivery cialis If Grachev is not ready, overnight delivery cialis the Rangers are in no worse of a position. Overnight delivery cialis In fact, overnight delivery cialis they still might be in a good position because, overnight delivery cialis by that time, overnight delivery cialis Chris Drury will be healthy and Dubinsky will be that much closer to being ready to rejoin the team.
