April 2010


Buy viagra no prescription Before the New York Can Rangers can fathom wading into the 2010 free agent pool, buy viagra no prescription they have many in-house decisions to make above and beyond clearing salary cap space. Buy viagra no prescription They have to address their own Restricted and Unrestricted free agents and decide which holdovers return and which ones are traded or released.

Buy viagra no prescription In this edition of Ranger Ramblings we will be taking a look at the Ranger free agents to see who should stay and who should go.

Buy viagra no prescription Every Ranger fan knows that the first step for the Blueshirts is to address the need for cap space space. Buy viagra no prescription Unfortunately, buy viagra no prescription it is not as easy as most people think because merely assigning Wade Redden and Michael Rozsival to Hartford does not immediately help the Rangers in their quest to create cap space.

Buy viagra no prescription As Larry Brooks of the New York Post pointed out, buy viagra no prescription all of an organization’s one-way contracts count against the salary cap until the start of training camp. Buy viagra no prescription The only pre-camp relief teams get is that the NHL allows teams to go over the season’s salary cap by 10%. Buy viagra no prescription As a result, buy viagra no prescription the Rangers salary wiggle room will be restricted until training camp, buy viagra no prescription in other words, buy viagra no prescription far too late for the Rangers to make any meaningful signings.

Buy viagra no prescription Here is a breakdown of the Rangers free agents along with their 2009-2010 salaries:

Buy viagra no prescription

    Unrestricted Free Agents:

Buy viagra no prescription

Buy viagra no prescription Olli Jokinen, buy viagra no prescription C; 32, buy viagra no prescription $5.5 million
Vinny Prospal, buy viagra no prescription LW, buy viagra no prescription 35, buy viagra no prescription $1.1 million
Alex Auld, buy viagra no prescription G, buy viagra no prescription 29, buy viagra no prescription $1 million
Jody Shelley, buy viagra no prescription RW, buy viagra no prescription 34, buy viagra no prescription $725, buy viagra no prescription000
P.A. Buy viagra no prescription Parenteau, buy viagra no prescription RW, buy viagra no prescription 27, buy viagra no prescription $500, buy viagra no prescription000
Anders Eriksson, buy viagra no prescription D, buy viagra no prescription 35, buy viagra no prescription $600, buy viagra no prescription000
Corey Potter, buy viagra no prescription D, buy viagra no prescription 26, buy viagra no prescription $550, buy viagra no prescription000

Buy viagra no prescription

    Restricted Free Agents:

Buy viagra no prescription

Buy viagra no prescription Marc Staal, buy viagra no prescription D, buy viagra no prescription 23, buy viagra no prescription $765, buy viagra no prescription000
Dan Girardi, buy viagra no prescription D, buy viagra no prescription 26, buy viagra no prescription $1.6 million
Erik Christensen, buy viagra no prescription C, buy viagra no prescription 26, buy viagra no prescription $750, buy viagra no prescription000
Brandon Prust, buy viagra no prescription LW, buy viagra no prescription 26, buy viagra no prescription $525, buy viagra no prescription000
Enver Lisin, buy viagra no prescription RW, buy viagra no prescription 24, buy viagra no prescription $790, buy viagra no prescription000
Dane Byers, buy viagra no prescription LW, buy viagra no prescription 24, buy viagra no prescription $500, buy viagra no prescription000
Ilkka Heikkinen, buy viagra no prescription D, buy viagra no prescription 25, buy viagra no prescription $875, buy viagra no prescription000

Buy viagra no prescription The big number is the $5.5 million that is coming off the books as the Rangers say goodbye to Olli Jokinen. Buy viagra no prescription The Blueshirts will need those funds in order to keep Marc Staal and Dan Girardi. Buy viagra no prescription Jokinen has all the tools to be a top center, buy viagra no prescription but somehow he just hasn’t managed to find the toolbox for them. Buy viagra no prescription If he were willing to come back on a barebones contract (say $2 million) for one year, buy viagra no prescription then he might be worth the gamble. Buy viagra no prescription Odds are the Rangers should just look in another direction. Buy viagra no prescription

Buy viagra no prescription Keeping Staal is a no-brainer as he is the Rangers best all-around defenseman who has to be
re-signed to a three-year deal at the very least. Buy viagra no prescription He is the Rangers stopper on defense and always draws the likes of Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin. Buy viagra no prescription He also has shown signs of becoming an offensive threat as well. Buy viagra no prescription You have to figure he is due a contract in the Ryan Callaghan neighborhood ($2.4 million or so).

Buy viagra no prescription Girardi has drawn much discussion on various Internet sites. Buy viagra no prescription While he might not have progressed as much as most fans had hoped, buy viagra no prescription everyone has to remember we are still talking about a non-drafted free agent who slugged his way out of the ECHL. Buy viagra no prescription The Rangers are going to need his experience especially if the expected blue line overhaul is completed with Redden and Rozsival leaving the Garden.

Buy viagra no prescription Vinny Prospal has said all the right things about wanting to return to New York. Buy viagra no prescription He is a veteran leader who has been around John Tortorella long enough to held his teammates navigate the maze that is Torts. Buy viagra no prescription There are some concerns that injuries and age slowed him down as the season progressed, buy viagra no prescription but he is still worth a roster spot at a reasonable salary.

Buy viagra no prescription Alex Auld was probably the backup goaltender the rangers needed all season. Buy viagra no prescription He would have been an improvement over Steve Valiquette and Chad Johnson and has had experience as a number one netminder in the past. Buy viagra no prescription It seems that the rangers are looking for an even better upgrade. Buy viagra no prescription There will be a number of goaltenders on the UFA market, buy viagra no prescription so the Blueshirts might be able to latch onto a Martin Biron or Johan Hedberg at a reasonable price (say $1.5 million or so because both goalies made less than that last year).

Buy viagra no prescription All reports indicate that Jody Shelley helped steady a dressing room that Tortorella felt still needs improvement. Buy viagra no prescription His presence fills the bodyguard role that went unfilled when Colton Orr signed with Toronto. Buy viagra no prescription In addition, buy viagra no prescription he proved to be a player who could skate a regular shirt and helped turn the Rangers fourth line into the team’s most reliable line – which is a big reason why the Rangers did not make the playoff because teams being carried by their fourth line are in BIG trouble.

Buy viagra no prescription With all of that said, buy viagra no prescription can the Rangers afford to go down the mid-30s route with another aging enforcer? Signing Donald Brashear to a two-year deal is an albatross that will remain around the Rangers neck for one more season.

Buy viagra no prescription Shelley’s play at the end of the season might have earned himself a contract that will prove to be rich for the Rangers blood. Buy viagra no prescription With Torts calling for the Rangers to get younger, buy viagra no prescription the team might want to leave a spot on the fourth line for a Dane Byers or Dale Weise to fight their way on to the roster.

Buy viagra no prescription P.A. Buy viagra no prescription Parenteau is another Ranger whose play at the end of the season might have earned him a contract too expensive for the Rangers. Buy viagra no prescription If Parenteau were a baseball player, buy viagra no prescription he would be referred to as a Quadruple-A player – he is too good for the AHL (or Triple A in our analogy) but not quite good enough to be a top nine forward in the NHL (an everyday player in the Majors). Buy viagra no prescription Odds are he is going to look to sign with a team that will allow him to challenge for a regular spot in the lineup. Buy viagra no prescription The Rangers should be able to replace him in Hartford with another veteran Quadruple-A player.

Buy viagra no prescription Anders Eriksson was the veteran seventh defenseman the Rangers needed all season. Buy viagra no prescription The team thought they had that player in Alexei Semenov, buy viagra no prescription but he decided to sign a two-year deal with the KHL. Buy viagra no prescription I am not so sure I would have benched Matt Gilroy for Eriksson down the stretch because the veteran was not really an upgrade over the rookie. Buy viagra no prescription As for 2010-2011, buy viagra no prescription if the Rangers continue to go with youth on defense, buy viagra no prescription they will probably need an upgrade as far as the veteran seventh defenseman spot goes. Buy viagra no prescription If the Rangers have a blend of youth and experience on defense, buy viagra no prescription then Eriksson might be a cap friendly choice to sit on the bench.

Buy viagra no prescription Corey Potter is among a group of young Hartford blueliners who never got more than a cup of coffee with the Rangers. Buy viagra no prescription It seems that fans thought more of Potter than the Rangers brass. Buy viagra no prescription It is probably best for Potter and the team for the defenseman to move on to another organization where he will get a chance to play. Buy viagra no prescription The Rangers might be able to include Potter in a deal involving Redden and/or Rozsival as sort of a “throw-in” considering he does not fit into their plans. Buy viagra no prescription At the very least, buy viagra no prescription the Rangers should be able to trade him prior to the start of the free agency and get a mid-round draft pick.

Buy viagra no prescription Since we have already addressed Staal and Girardi, buy viagra no prescription we turn our attention to the UFA by looking at Erik Christenson. Buy viagra no prescription The journeyman center seemed to find a home as the first line center with Marian Gaborik – yet another indictment of the Rangers lack of top nine forwards. Buy viagra no prescription Christensen is better suited for third or fourth line work. Buy viagra no prescription However, buy viagra no prescription with Chris Drury, buy viagra no prescription Artem Anisimov, buy viagra no prescription Brian Boyle and Brandon Dubinsky on the team, buy viagra no prescription there is not much room for Christensen. Buy viagra no prescription At best he would be battling Boyle for fourth line duty. Buy viagra no prescription Given that Boyle will make just $525, buy viagra no prescription000 next season, buy viagra no prescription Christensen might be too expensive for fourth line duty on a team that has salary cap issues.

Buy viagra no prescription Who would have thought that Brandon Prust would be the main thrust and Jokinen the second wheel in the deal with Calgary? Prust reminds me of a kinder, buy viagra no prescription gentler Sean Avery in that he does the most with the talent he has. Buy viagra no prescription In addition to be willing to drop the gloves, buy viagra no prescription Prust was able to get valuable ice time as a penalty killer and along with Anisimov and Shelley made Torts change his coaching style by forcing him to play all four lines. Buy viagra no prescription Prust is not only a keeper, buy viagra no prescription but his style of play might give Torts the ammunition he needs to talk Glen Sather into moving Avery.

Buy viagra no prescription Enver Lisin showed flashes of being a player who could step up and give the Rangers a much needed sniper. Buy viagra no prescription However, buy viagra no prescription his hot and cold play quickly placed him Tortorella’s doghouse – a position that Lisin never had a chance of getting out of. Buy viagra no prescription It is highly doubtful that the Rangers will re-sign him and I would bet that Lisin is not all that thrilled to stay in New York. Buy viagra no prescription Sather would be wise to try and trade him prior to the NHL Draft and try and get something for a player who will surely leave the organization.

Buy viagra no prescription Dane Byers is a player who has seemed to become the forgotten prospect at Hartford. Buy viagra no prescription He was overshadowed this year by the hype of Evgeny Grachev and the breakthrough season of Weise. Buy viagra no prescription Byers has the ability to step and gibe the Rangers the same kind of grit that Shelley gave the Rangers. Buy viagra no prescription At the very least, buy viagra no prescription Byers should be re-signed and given every chance to earn a spot on the fourth line.

Buy viagra no prescription If Byers was the forgotten forward, buy viagra no prescription then Ilkka Heikkinen was definitely the forgotten defenseman. Buy viagra no prescription The Finnish blueliner played seven games with the Rangers, buy viagra no prescription but only once did he log more than 10 minutes in a game. Buy viagra no prescription During a season when the Rangers needed to have a seventh defenseman on the roster, buy viagra no prescription Heikkinen’s experience in Europe should have afforded him more of a look than he got. Buy viagra no prescription While it is uncertain where Heikkinen plays next season (odds are he will return to Europe), buy viagra no prescription it is pretty much a done deal that he will not return to the R

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg For the first time since the NHL returned from the lockout the New York Rangers sit at home watching the NHL playoffs. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Much like the years previous to the lockout, generic viagra blue pill 25mg when the Rangers were missing the playoffs, generic viagra blue pill 25mg they were bad – but not bad enough to position themselves at a shot at the first overall selection in the 2010 NHL Draft.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg As anyone who follows the Blueshirts knows, generic viagra blue pill 25mg being a Rangers fan is like spending the entire season on a rollercoaster. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg While the 2009-2010 season was no different, generic viagra blue pill 25mg the rollercoaster ride this season was particularly bizarre. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The Rangers started and ended the season on big-time streaks with the mother of all miserable play. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg After losing their first game in Pittsburgh, generic viagra blue pill 25mg the Rangers ran off a seven game winning streak to start the season at 7-1-0. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg With their playoff hopes fading, generic viagra blue pill 25mg the Blueshirts mustered up a 7-1-2 streak to finish the season one regulation goal away from the playoffs.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg However, generic viagra blue pill 25mg the team that could be considered a doughnut (a hole in the middle – that is – no center) played horrendous hockey in the middle portion of the season as they bumbled their way to a 24-31-9 record – hardly playoff-caliber hockey.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg So where do we go from here?

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The first thing that needs to be done will not get done. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Jimmy Dolan is not going put right what has gone wrong. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg In other words, generic viagra blue pill 25mg he is not going to fire Glen Sather. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg In turn, generic viagra blue pill 25mg Sather is not going to fire John Tortorella (yet) because Slats is not quick to admit he makes mistakes – whether or not Torts is to blame.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg However, generic viagra blue pill 25mg Sather is going to have to claim mea culpa in order to make any improvements to the Rangers because his salary cap wiggle room barely allows for keeping the status quo – never mind attempting to bring in a big-time free agent or trying to trade for help.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg His first step is to clear out as much salary cap space as possible. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg He did a good job last year by trading Scott Gomez, generic viagra blue pill 25mg thus making room for Marian Gaborik. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg In addition, generic viagra blue pill 25mg he also managed to bring in defense prospect Ryan McDonagh. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Sather begrudgingly admitting his mistake in signing Ales Kotalik by turning the winger and Christopher Higgins into Olli Jokinen and Brandon Prust. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Not only did this trade clear some cap space by dealing away two years worth of Kotalik’s salary, generic viagra blue pill 25mg the Rangers uncovered a diamond in the rough with Prust – a less troublesome version of Sean Avery.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The President/GM has to continue this hot streak by finding ways to remove both Wade Redden and Michal Rozsival. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Of course, generic viagra blue pill 25mg that is probably easier said than done. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Unlike the Gomez deal where Sather added a prospect, generic viagra blue pill 25mg moving Redden and/or Rozsival is probably going to cost the Rangers some of their prospects and/or draft picks. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg This is not the ideal solution, generic viagra blue pill 25mg but it might be the only one.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Yes, generic viagra blue pill 25mg I know the Rangers can merely place both players on waivers and exile them to Hartford but at what cost? The last thing the Rangers need are high-priced players clogging up roster spots in the AHL – never mind the potential harm that could happen as a result of the negative feedback of disgruntled veterans. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Besides, generic viagra blue pill 25mg it is bad enough that Sather will have to dump Donald Brashear’s contract in Hartford.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Buying out Wade or Michal is not feasible because it merely stretches out their cap hit because the salary is spread out to twice what is left on the contract. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg In addition, generic viagra blue pill 25mg the Rangers can’t afford to lose salary cap space on players who are no longer with the team. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Larry Brooks of the New York Post explained the gory details of a possible Redden buyout in his April 14, generic viagra blue pill 25mg 2010 article.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg “The Rangers would be charged $1, generic viagra blue pill 25mg916, generic viagra blue pill 25mg667 the next two and last four years of the hit, generic viagra blue pill 25mg while taking a $3, generic viagra blue pill 25mg416, generic viagra blue pill 25mg667 cap charge for 2012-13 and 2013-14, generic viagra blue pill 25mg assuming, generic viagra blue pill 25mg of course that retroactive amnesty is not part of the next CBA.”

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg No, generic viagra blue pill 25mg what Sather has to do is start burning up the telephone and try to call in all of the favors he has built up through the many years he has been in the NHL. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg I am sure that he has built up enough cache that he can make another GM “an offer he can’t refuse”, generic viagra blue pill 25mg if you know what I mean. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg It might even be necessary to swap one problem for another and hope that the change of scenery is enough.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg For example, generic viagra blue pill 25mg there were rumors prior to the Olympic break that the Blueshirts were talking to Edmonton about Sheldon Souray. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Any talks that might have been initiated were doomed when Souray got hurt. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The Oilers are as interested in moving Souray as the Rangers are in moving Redden and Rozsival.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg The numbers between Rozsival and Souray are similar. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Souray has two more years left on a contract that is a $5.4 million cap hit. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Rozy also has two years left and his cap hit is $5.0 million. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg If Kevin Lowe were still GM, generic viagra blue pill 25mg then Sather might have been able to get away with a one-for-one deal. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg With Steve Tambellini in charge, generic viagra blue pill 25mg Slats will have to sweeten the pot a bit.

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Depending on how sweet that sweetener is, generic viagra blue pill 25mg Sather might want to move Redden instead because he has three years left on a contract with a cap hit of $6.5 million. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg

Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Whichever way Sather goes, generic viagra blue pill 25mg he needs to move out both defensemen in order to free up salary cap space. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg Before the Rangers decide which free agents or trades to pursue, generic viagra blue pill 25mg they have to decide what they are going to do with their own free agents – especially Marc Staal and Daniel Girardi. Generic viagra blue pill 25mg if the Rangers are able to move Redden and Rozsival it is going to be essential that Staal and Girardi are retained before the Rangers can move forward.

Viagra capsules Now that the New York Rangers season comes down to the final two games against the Philadelphia Flyers, viagra capsules it is time for take a mulligan on my last column when I said the Rangers must go into the tank for the rest of the season to improve their draft position. Viagra capsules My newfound advice comes from Adrian to her husband in Rocky II, viagra capsules “Win. Viagra capsules Win!”

Viagra capsules I know some of you might be wondering why the change in heart. Viagra capsules There is a simple answer. Viagra capsules Once the Rangers went on their 6-1-1 roll, viagra capsules they lost any chance at securing the first overall selection in the NHL Draft. Viagra capsules As things stand now, viagra capsules the Rangers would most likely select 10th overall and could only move up four places if they were lucky enough to win the lottery. Viagra capsules In the 10th slot, viagra capsules the Rangers have something like a 2% chance of winning the Draft lottery. Viagra capsules Once again the Rangers were bad, viagra capsules but not bad enough to hit hit it big in the NHL Draft.

Viagra capsules If the Rangers did make the playoffs, viagra capsules they would select 15th overall. Viagra capsules Five spots means a lot when you can go from picking 10th to first. Viagra capsules It doesn’t mean all that much when you can go from 15th to 10th.

Viagra capsules Given those odds, viagra capsules the Rangers might as well polish off the Flyers and take the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and try their luck with a rematch against the Washington Capitals. Viagra capsules You can pretty much presume that this year’s result would not be the same as last year’s result because the Blueshirts would be pressed mightily to extend the series to seven games this year, viagra capsules but as that wise sage the New York Lottery says, viagra capsules “You got be in It to win it” and “Hey, viagra capsules you never know.”

Viagra capsules Hockey is the one sport where an underdog can jump up and take a bit of a favorite because of the play of a hit goaltender. Viagra capsules The Rangers saw that first hand last year when they had the Caps down three games to one before rookie Semeon Varlamov took control of the series.

Viagra capsules While Henrik Lundqvist has been up-and-down this season, viagra capsules he still has the ability to carry the team to a victory in a playoff series. Viagra capsules While it isn’t likely to happen if the Rangers make playoffs, viagra capsules it is a certainty that he can’t steal a playoff series if the Rangers don’t make the playoffs.

Viagra capsules Thus ends my logical explanation as to why the Rangers should make the playoffs. Viagra capsules The mere fact that I am a Ranger (fan) means that logic goes out the window come April. Viagra capsules I have been a Rangers fan since 1971 and each Spring there is always a part of me that can rationalize how the Rangers can make a series run at the Stanley Cup – even though 1994 was the only year when logic and fact aligned.

Viagra capsules In all likelihood, viagra capsules I am just being pulled back into fantasy based on the Rangers recent run – despite the fact that five of those wins came against teams that are out of the playoffs. Viagra capsules Perhaps I have just been conditioned to accept the Rangers frantic made dash to the playoffs as an inevitable rite of passage late in the season.

Viagra capsules Only a diehard Ranger fan would think back to April 4, viagra capsules 2006 when the Rangers beat the Flyers 3-2 in a shootout to clinch the Blueshirts first playoff appearance in nearly decade. Viagra capsules Surely, viagra capsules it is fate shining on the Rangers again by clinching the playoffs against the Flyers, viagra capsules isn’t it?

Viagra capsules While the Rangers might have pulled me back in, viagra capsules I am not one of those fans who is wringing his hands over Lindy Ruff’s decision to rest Ryan Miller last night and play Patrick Lalime against the Boston Bruins. Viagra capsules The Buffalo Sabres earned their right to rest their players by winning their division and clinching a playoff spot. Viagra capsules Ruff’s only concern should be for the Sabres, viagra capsules not for how the rest of the playoffs might shape up.

Viagra capsules If there is animosity from the Rangers or their fans, viagra capsules it is a waste of time. Viagra capsules The Blueshirts had their chances to make their final week of the season more relaxed. Viagra capsules However, viagra capsules they blew that opportunity by phoning in a pair of games against Boston and the Montreal Canadiens. Viagra capsules They had their chance to earn two points instead of one in Toronto but frittered away the lead and lost in overtime. Viagra capsules They kissed two points goodbye when they could not take advantage of a shaky Ty Conklin in a 4-3 loss to the St. Viagra capsules Louis Blues.

Viagra capsules Honestly, viagra capsules you can probably find a dozen or so games where the Rangers lost golden chances to earn an extra point here or two points there. Viagra capsules Their 17-17-6 home record pretty much explains why the Rangers are on the verge of missing the playoffs for the first time since the NHL returned to action following the Lockout.

Viagra capsules When all is said and done, viagra capsules and all of the consequences are weighed and measured, viagra capsules there is one reason why Rangers Nation must unite behind the idea of the Rangers winning the final two games and making the playoffs. Viagra capsules

Viagra capsules If the Rangers do win the final two games and make the playoffs, viagra capsules then that means the Philadelphia Flyers will not make the playoffs. Viagra capsules In the long run, viagra capsules that is a good reason for me.
