April 2013


Buy viagra mexico I am not sure if Branch Rickey had Brad Richards and the Rangers in mind when he uttered, buy viagra mexico “Luck is the residue of design”, buy viagra mexico but design or not, buy viagra mexico Richards’ pinball goal in the closing minutes of the third period helped ease the minds of all Rangers fans. Buy viagra mexico I am sure there are a few players, buy viagra mexico coaches and front office executive who also are breathing a sigh of relief that the Rangers playoff hopes did not come down to having to beat the New Jersey Devils on Saturday afternoon.

Buy viagra mexico As it turns out, buy viagra mexico the Rangers didn’t need bank shot nor did they need Ryan Callahan to channel his inner Mark Messier because the Montreal Canadiens came from behind to defeat the Winnipeg Jets last night. Buy viagra mexico Still, buy viagra mexico it feels better that the Blueshirts “earned” their way into the playoffs rather than “backing” their way in.

Buy viagra mexico As the NHL heads into the final weekend of its abbreviated season, buy viagra mexico the eight Eastern Conference teams have been set. Buy viagra mexico What we don’t know are the playoff matchups. Buy viagra mexico The Rangers can finish anywhere from sixth to eighth and face Pittsburgh (#1 vs. Buy viagra mexico #8), buy viagra mexico Boston or Montreal (#2 vs. Buy viagra mexico #7), buy viagra mexico or Washington (#3 vs. Buy viagra mexico #6).

Buy viagra mexico If we learned anything from last year’s playoffs, buy viagra mexico a team’s seed does not necessarily guarantee a team playoff success or failure. Buy viagra mexico The top-seeded Rangers faced a pair of grueling seven-game series against the eighth and seventh seeds before being eliminated by the sixth-seeded Devils who, buy viagra mexico in turn, buy viagra mexico lost the Stanley Cup Finals to the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Kings.

Buy viagra mexico While it might not always appear that way, buy viagra mexico the Rangers are playing some of their most productive hockey – at least in terms of producing points. Buy viagra mexico They are 9-3-1 in their last 13 games and if you extended that out over the course of a 48-game season, buy viagra mexico the Blueshirts would have been in a battle for the first/four seed rather than in a battle to just make the playoffs.

Buy viagra mexico The Rangers strong finish to the season allowed them to avoid repeating a repeat of history 20 years ago. Buy viagra mexico In 1991-92, buy viagra mexico the Rangers won the President’s Trophy before a disappointing elimination to the Penguins. Buy viagra mexico In 2011-12, buy viagra mexico the Rangers finish with the second best record in the NHL (even though they topped their 91-92 point total) before a disappointing elimination to the Devils. Buy viagra mexico In 1992-93, buy viagra mexico with expectations high, buy viagra mexico the Rangers crash and burn and miss the playoffs. Buy viagra mexico In 2012-13, buy viagra mexico the Blueshirts nearly replicated missing the playoffs.

Buy viagra mexico Of course, buy viagra mexico there might be some who would argue that the Rangers should have missed the playoffs this year in order to really finish off the 20-year history: 1993-94 Stanley Cup Champions — 2013-14 Stanley Cup Champions.

Buy viagra mexico Regardless of the Rangers playoff opponents, buy viagra mexico there are two things that all Blueshirts fans can take for granted. Buy viagra mexico First, buy viagra mexico the Rangers will go into the series with a goaltending edge – no disrespect to any of the other playoff goaltenders. Buy viagra mexico The New York Rangers live and die with Henrik Lundqvist and in the vast majority of times he has responded.

Buy viagra mexico The second thing is that the Rangers will struggle to score goals. Buy viagra mexico That is pretty much a given in any playoff series not involving the 2011-12 Flyers playing the 2011-12 Penguins. Buy viagra mexico Those scoring struggle may only get worse as teams tighten up their play in the playoffs. Buy viagra mexico

Buy viagra mexico That is the main reason why I believe that the key to winning in the playoffs is finding a way to increase your offensive production because goals are always at a premium. Buy viagra mexico The only positive for the Rangers is that there are a couple of areas where an improvement would produce improved scoring production.

Buy viagra mexico I know it is a lot to ask given the way the Rangers power play has struggled since the first two years after the first lockout, buy viagra mexico but any semblance of an NHL-caliber power play will pay major dividends. Buy viagra mexico In addition to finding ways to score, buy viagra mexico the Rangers must find ways to keep their power play from being momentum killers. Buy viagra mexico Creating shots and chances is a good thing. Buy viagra mexico Stumbling your way into the offensive zone and throwing the puck around the perimeter is a bad thing.

Buy viagra mexico That leads me to the second thing the Rangers need to improve on: shoot the puck – on net. Buy viagra mexico There is no more frustrating sight than to see a Ranger player have a step on a defender and watch him windup and drive a shot wide of the net (can you say Michael Del Zotto). Buy viagra mexico Not only do you lose the offensive chance, buy viagra mexico but far too often that missed shot ends up as an odd-man rush against the Rangers. Buy viagra mexico Therefore, buy viagra mexico in the simplest terms I can use, buy viagra mexico hit the net.

Buy viagra mexico Of course, buy viagra mexico in conjunction with hitting the net is getting bodies in front of the net. Buy viagra mexico Any goalie will tell the hardest shot to stop is the one he can’t see. Buy viagra mexico The second hardest shot to stop is the one that gets deflected.

Buy viagra mexico While we are talking about shots, buy viagra mexico the Blueshirts have a bad habit of being too unselfish in their play. Buy viagra mexico I know that sounds like an oxymoron, buy viagra mexico but it does make sense. Buy viagra mexico Far too many times Rangers try to make the extra pass when they have a scoring chance of their own. Buy viagra mexico Sometimes it is a player deferring to a scorer and sometimes it seems as if a player just is plain afraid to take the shot. Buy viagra mexico In either case, buy viagra mexico sometimes being selfish is a good thing in hockey.

Buy viagra mexico Now if you combine getting more shots, buy viagra mexico on goal, buy viagra mexico with bodies in front for screens and deflections, buy viagra mexico and you to take the scoring chance you have; guess what you have? You have a team whose power play is a lot more successful than the Rangers and you have a team who is increasing their scoring chances.

Buy viagra mexico The final word belongs to Steven McDonald who pretty much summed up the Rangers task on the night that Ryan Callahan became a four-time winner of the Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award.

Buy viagra mexico “We need one play, buy viagra mexico one shift, buy viagra mexico one block, buy viagra mexico and a goal to make this game and this season a memorable one … so get it done.”

Viagra order cheap If the NHL Trade Deadline was the game of Clue, viagra order cheap not too many people would have had Marian Gaborik to Columbus for Derick Brassard, viagra order cheap Derek Dorsett and John Moore. Viagra order cheap Even fewer people would have had Brassard, viagra order cheap Moore and Ryane Clowe (who had not scored a goal all year) combining for four goals and four assists (including four power play points) in their first game as New York Rangers. Viagra order cheap For one night, viagra order cheap Glen Sather’s wheeling and dealing paid off.

Viagra order cheap It remains to be seen how these two deals shape the rest of the Rangers season and if they were enough to make the difference in missing the playoffs and having the chance to replicate their 2012 playoff run. Viagra order cheap

Viagra order cheap Only time will tell if the Rangers will have enough time to gel as a team while trying to make a run at the playoffs. Viagra order cheap The Blueshirts have now reshaped their team twice within the confines of one season – and both times doing so without the benefit of training camp and a full 82-game schedule.

Viagra order cheap Whatever is in store for the rest of this season, viagra order cheap the Gaborik trade was made with an eye towards the next two seasons.

Viagra order cheap With the NHL salary cap dropping by $6 million in 2013-2014, viagra order cheap the Rangers needed to find a way to create some salary cap flexibility with Carl Hagelin, viagra order cheap Ryan McDonough and Derek Stepan needing new deals as RFAs, viagra order cheap and Clowe set to become an UFA.

Viagra order cheap Even if the Rangers did not trade Gaborik, viagra order cheap there is no way they were going to re-sign him after next season with the likes of Martin Biron, viagra order cheap Brian Boyle, viagra order cheap Ryan Callahan, viagra order cheap Dan Girardi, viagra order cheap Henrik Lundqvist, viagra order cheap and Anton Stralman all set to become UFAs and Michael Del Zotto becoming a RFA – as will Brassard and Moore.

Viagra order cheap CapGeek lists the Rangers having $14.8 million in cap space available for next year. Viagra order cheap That figure does not factor in all of the free agents or any of the youngsters who are assigned to the AHL (e.g. Viagra order cheap Chris Kreider and J.T. Viagra order cheap Miller). Viagra order cheap Given the numbers game alone, viagra order cheap the Blueshirts might need to move out more salary (Aron Asham? Taylor Pyatt?) in order to build next year’s team. Viagra order cheap

Viagra order cheap Setting aside the financial considerations, viagra order cheap the Rangers trades reshape the team along the lines of the team that went to the Eastern Conference Finals last season. Viagra order cheap The big change is that the main scoring winger this year (Nash) is a far more physical player than last year’s main scoring winger (Gaborik). Viagra order cheap

Viagra order cheap In addition, viagra order cheap the Rangers added depth to their roster, viagra order cheap as well as getting bigger and younger with the additions of Brassard and Moore – two former 1st round draft picks who still have room to grow in terms of reaching their potential.

Viagra order cheap Sather’s deadline dealings leaves the Rangers without a first and second round pick this June and they also dealt away one of their three third round picks, viagra order cheap but they might be able to recoup it if they do not make the Stanley Cup Finals. Viagra order cheap If that is the case, viagra order cheap then the Rangers receive a third round pick from Columbus as part of the Rick Nash trade.

Viagra order cheap In addition, viagra order cheap the Rangers still have an opportunity to restock their prospect pool by signing undrafted collegiate and Junior players. Viagra order cheap The Blueshirts already fortified their defense corps with the signing of Conor Allen and Tommy Hughes. Viagra order cheap

Viagra order cheap Here is a detailed look at all of the newest New York Rangers.

Viagra order cheap RYANE CLOWE

Viagra order cheap Clowe is a 6-foot-2 and 225 pound LW who brings the “jam” that Coach John Tortorella often talks about. Viagra order cheap The 30-year-old Clowe was San Jose’s 7th round draft pick (#175) in the 2001 NHL Draft. Viagra order cheap Prior to his goal scoring drought this season with the Sharks, viagra order cheap Clowe averaged about 21 goals and 33 assists during the last four seasons – including a career best 24 goals and 38 assists in 2010-11. Viagra order cheap He also added six goals and nine assists in 17 playoff games that year.

Viagra order cheap Here is his Hockey News Scouting Report:

Viagra order cheap Assets: Plays a solid up-and-down game, viagra order cheap and is a throwback winger who loves to check and do the dirty work. Viagra order cheap Strong on the puck, viagra order cheap he’s versatile enough to line up on either wing. Viagra order cheap Is a good scorer in close and an excellent scrapper, viagra order cheap too.

Viagra order cheap Flaws: Can be a bit too streaky in the goal-scoring department. Viagra order cheap As he has become a bigger scoring threat, viagra order cheap he has become a little less physical, viagra order cheap too. Viagra order cheap Also, viagra order cheap he is not an elegant skater; he’s somewhat of a plodder, viagra order cheap in fact.

Viagra order cheap Career Potential: Solid power forward.

Viagra order cheap DERICK BRASSARD

Viagra order cheap The 25-year-old Brassard was the sixth overall selection in the 2006 NHL Draft. Viagra order cheap The 6-foot-1 and 202 pound Center was the ninth rated prospect by the International Scouting Service (ISS) who compared his playing style to that of Paul Kariya. Viagra order cheap ISS attributed his hockey sense to his hockey background as his father Pierre was drafted in 1976 the 6th round by the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL Draft and in the 10th round by the Quebec Nordiques in the WHA Draft. Viagra order cheap While Pierre did not play professional hockey, viagra order cheap he did star for three years with Cornwall (QMJHL) – averaging 61 goals and 63 assists in his final two seasons.

Viagra order cheap Of Brassard, viagra order cheap ISS said, viagra order cheap “The shifty pivot is one of the most exciting forwards in the offensive zone; speed and agility allows him to find the open space. Viagra order cheap With all his offensive ability he still shows good defensive awareness and the willingness to help out in the defensive zone.”

Viagra order cheap His career has hampered by a pair of shoulder injuries that caused him to miss large chunks of playing time. Viagra order cheap In the 2006-07 season, viagra order cheap Brassard was limited to just 14 games with Rimouski (QMJHL). Viagra order cheap In 2008-09, viagra order cheap another shoulder injury forced Brassard to miss the final 50 games of the regular season and all four Columbus playoff games.

Viagra order cheap In 2010-11, viagra order cheap Brassard set career highs in goals, viagra order cheap assists and points (17-30-47).

Viagra order cheap Here is Brassard’s Hockey News Scouting Report:

Viagra order cheap Assets: Skates well and possesses plenty of scoring instincts. Viagra order cheap Can excel at both ends of the ice, viagra order cheap and is a determined athlete. Viagra order cheap Owns leadership qualities.

Viagra order cheap Flaws: Must learn to shoot more. Viagra order cheap Needs to continue adding more strength to fully maximize his vast potential. Viagra order cheap Has to overcome his propensity to get injured.

Viagra order cheap Career Potential: Talented, viagra order cheap but inconsistent forward with upside.

Viagra order cheap DEREK DORSETT

Viagra order cheap Rangers fans will have to wait before the debut of their new RW. Viagra order cheap The 6-foot and 192 pound Dorsett is on Injured Reserve recovering from a broken collarbone. Viagra order cheap Some reports have him out for the rest of the season while others say he could be back for the last week of the regular season or the start of the playoffs.

Viagra order cheap The one thing that is for certain is that fans of Brandon Prust are going to love Dorsett as he plays the same style of game that Prust does. Viagra order cheap Dorsett did kill penalties while a member of the Blue Jackets.

Viagra order cheap Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch tweeted the following in the aftermath of the Rangers-Blue Jackets trade, viagra order cheap “Fully expect Derek Dorsett to be a fan favorite in Madison Square Garden. Viagra order cheap He’s not big, viagra order cheap but his heart swells in the sweater. Viagra order cheap Tortorella will love this guy, viagra order cheap as long as he limits ill-advised penalties. Viagra order cheap But he’s fearless and relentless player. Viagra order cheap Will fight anybody.”

Viagra order cheap His willingness to scrap, viagra order cheap and take some ill-advised penalties, viagra order cheap contributed to his NHL best 235 PIMs – which were fueled by his 19 fighting majors. Viagra order cheap Despite spending all that time in the penalty box, viagra order cheap Dorsett did score 12 goals and add 8 assists as well last season. Viagra order cheap He was averaging about 16 minutes of ice time this season and tallied three goals and six assists in 24 games with Columbus.

Viagra order cheap Dorsett was part of Columbus’ 2006 NHL Draft that produced NHLers Brassard, viagra order cheap the recently traded Steve Mason and Tom Sestito. Viagra order cheap Dorsett was the Blue Jackets 7th round pick (#189).

Viagra order cheap Here is Dorsett’s Hockey News Scouting Report:

Viagra order cheap Assets: Is an industrious winger who never backs down from challenges. Viagra order cheap Loves to initiate contact and agitate the opposition. Viagra order cheap Will drop the gloves on occasion. Viagra order cheap Can play any forward position if he has to.

Viagra order cheap Flaws: Is somewhat limited in the scoring department at the National Hockey League level. Viagra order cheap Needs to get stronger and avoid injuries in order to survive in the NHL playing with such reckless abandon.

Viagra order cheap Career Potential: Effective, viagra order cheap fearless agitator.

Viagra order cheap JOHN MOORE

Viagra order cheap The 6-foot-3 and 202 pound defenseman was Columbus’ 1st round pick (#21) in the 2009 NHL Draft. Viagra order cheap The Rangers selected Chris Kreider two picks early and Calgary drafted Tim Erixon two picks later. Viagra order cheap As we all know, viagra order cheap thanks to Mike Emrick and Pierre McGuire, viagra order cheap played triple-A amateur hockey with the Chicago Mission who was coached by Ed Olczyk. Viagra order cheap What the NBC Sports guys didn’t mention is that former NHL defenseman Steve Smith was also one of Moore’s coaches.

Viagra order cheap In 2009, viagra order cheap Moore was rated the 16th best prospect by ISS and they compared his playing style to that of Joe Corvo.

Viagra order cheap Of Moore, viagra order cheap ISS said, viagra order cheap He has the size and skill to go along with great playmaking abilities. Viagra order cheap Tremendous skater. Viagra order cheap Moore is blessed with very light / quick feet that enable him to get to and from the puck/plays in an expeditious manner. Viagra order cheap In addition, viagra order cheap Moore’s checking skills have also improved as he is holding his checks better along the boards with improved balance etc.”

Viagra order cheap After spending 73 games in the AHL in his rookie seasons (two games with Columbus), viagra order cheap Moore played 67 games with the Blue Jackets (two goals and five assists) last season (just five games in the AHL).

Viagra order cheap The 22-year-old blueliner was limited to just 18 games with Columbus as a lower body injury caused him to miss five games in February and a recent shoulder injury forced him to miss eight games as he was on the Injured Reserve List and only was activated in mid-March.

Viagra order cheap Here is Moore’s Hockey News Scouting Report:

Viagra order cheap Assets: Has a good frame to grow into, viagra order cheap and owns exceptional skating ability. Viagra order cheap Can play an offensive role and likes to be on the attack. Viagra order cheap Can fire the puck and eventually quarterback a power play. Viagra order cheap His speed is also very useful on defense.

Viagra order cheap Flaws: Is still learning the nuances of the NHL game. Viagra order cheap Needs to add more strength in order to better handle big forwards. Viagra order cheap Needs to keep working on his defensive consistency with regards to his decision-making.

Viagra order cheap Career Potential: Extremely mobile defenseman with good upside.

Viagra order cheap CONOR ALLEN

Viagra order cheap The 6-foot-1 and 210 Allen was the first of two undrafted free agent defensemen the Rangers signed leading up to the NHL Trade Deadline. Viagra order cheap The 23-year-old played his collegiate hockey at the University of Massachusetts. Viagra order cheap Believe it or not, viagra order cheap there is an Olczyk connection with Allen. Viagra order cheap While at UMass, viagra order cheap Allen was a teammate of Eddie Olczyk, viagra order cheap Ed’s son.

Viagra order cheap Signing free agent UMass defenseman is nothing new for the Blueshirts because they signed Thomas Pock at the end of the 2003-04 season. Viagra order cheap Much like Matt Gilroy, viagra order cheap Pock was a forward who was shifted to the blue line in college.

Viagra order cheap The Rangers have three other UMass connections. Viagra order cheap Defenseman Marvin Degon, viagra order cheap an AHL signee, viagra order cheap played 85 games with Hartford in 2005-06 and 200607.

Viagra order cheap In 2011-12, viagra order cheap Casey Wellman played 31 AHL games with the Connecticut Whale after being acquired from the Minnesota Wild.
Danny Hobbs, viagra order cheap the Rangers 7th round pick (#198) in the 2007 NHL Draft played four seasons at UMass before turning pro and spending this season in the ECHL with the Greenville Road Warriors.

Viagra order cheap Allen also played in USHL with Sioux Falls Stampede (2009/10) with Dallas 2011 1st rounder Jamie Oleksiak, viagra order cheap and was an NAHL teammate of Devils goalie prospect Keith Kinkaid in 2008/09 with the St. Viagra order cheap Louis Bandits.

Viagra order cheap Allen is looking to duplicate the jump to the NHL two other Minutemen have taken – LA’s Jonathan Quick and Toronto’s Mike Kostka.

Viagra order cheap Allen spent the previous two summers on two NHL Summer Development Camp Rosters – the Washington Capitals (2011) and the Vancouver Canucks (2012).

Viagra order cheap His college coach for his first two seasons, viagra order cheap Don “Toot” Cahoon, viagra order cheap gave an insight into Allen’s game during a September 2010 interview.

Viagra order cheap “Allen will be a great skating defenseman in this league, viagra order cheap” Cahoon told Dick Baker of MassLive.com. Viagra order cheap “He really transitions the puck by foot as well as with a strong pass.”

Viagra order cheap UMass Sports Blog Fear The Triangle offered up this summary of Allen’s season.

Viagra order cheap “I thought Allen was consistently one of the best UMass players on the ice this season and even one of the better defenseman in the conference. Viagra order cheap Defensively, viagra order cheap he was easily the best player for UMass. Viagra order cheap He more than doubled his blocked shots from last year from 24 to a team high 57. Viagra order cheap He doubled his assists from last year, viagra order cheap from 7 to 14, viagra order cheap and added 5 goals of his own.”

Viagra order cheap TOMMY HUGHES

Viagra order cheap The 6-foot-2 and 216 pound defenseman comes to the Rangers as an undrafted free agent out of Canadian Junior hockey and from a team they are quite familiar with – the London Knights. Viagra order cheap Both Dan Girardi and Michael Del Zotto were member of the Knights.
Hughes, viagra order cheap a native of London, viagra order cheap Ontario, viagra order cheap is looking to follow in the footsteps of Girardi and become another London blueliner who went from undrafted free agent to NHL star with the Rangers.

Viagra order cheap If Hughes does make the Rangers in the not-too-distant future, viagra order cheap he will have the chance to team with London Knights alum Rick Nash, viagra order cheap whose #61 is retired. Viagra order cheap Former Ranger Brendan Shanahan also has his number retired (#19).

Viagra order cheap Ottawa’s Marc Methot is another undrafted Knights defenseman who has battled his way into the NHL.

Viagra order cheap Currently, viagra order cheap Hughes is one of five members of the London Knights who have signed contracts with NHL teams while another five Knights have been drafted but have yet to sign with their draft teams.

Viagra order cheap Hughes actually serves as a perfect complement to Allen. Viagra order cheap Whereas Hughes is a right-handed shot, viagra order cheap Allen is a left-handed shooting defenseman.

Viagra order cheap However, viagra order cheap while Allen has signed an Amateur Tryout (ATO) agreement with the Connecticut Whale, viagra order cheap Hughes’ pro debut is on hold as he leads his Knights into the Second Round of the OHL playoffs. Viagra order cheap London’s opponent is, viagra order cheap ironically enough, viagra order cheap the Kitchener Rangers – one of the teams London defeated last year on their way to an OHL championship. Viagra order cheap The Knights and Baby Rangers have a couple of wild playoff battles during the last few years and this year should be no different.

Viagra order cheap Hughes is finishing up his fourth season with London and is serving as an Alternate Captain for the Knights. Viagra order cheap The defensive d-man set career highs in games (67), viagra order cheap assists (15), viagra order cheap points (16), viagra order cheap and PIMs (66).

Viagra order cheap Being an undrafted player is nothing new to the soon to be 21-year-old (on April 7). Viagra order cheap He joined London as a “walk-on” during the 2009-10 season (playing seven games) after playing his AAA midget hockey with the London Jr. Viagra order cheap Knights.

Viagra order cheap The Rangers interest in Hughes did not appear all of a sudden. Viagra order cheap The Blueshirts invited him to their Summer Development camp this year, viagra order cheap but a broken foot put the kibosh on his availability.

Viagra order cheap You know that Hughes will be ready for the rough-and-tumble world of the NHL given that his Junior coach is Dale Hunter.

Viagra order cheap “He blocks shots, viagra order cheap he’s fearless out there, viagra order cheap” Hunter told John Matisz of Metronews.ca. Viagra order cheap “He just kept getting better and better every year.”

Viagra order cheap Hunter also spoke to Matisz about London’s ability to train and develop undrafted NHL blueliners.

Viagra order cheap “They were like that for me when they were here, viagra order cheap and that’s what Hughesy does for us, viagra order cheap” the former Washington Capitals coach explained – referencing Girardi and Methot.

Viagra order cheap In reference to Hughes Matisz wrote, viagra order cheap “A trademark of Hughes’ game is his unorthodox skating style. Viagra order cheap Though it often appears like his long strides slow him down, viagra order cheap Hunter insists it’s quite the opposite.”

Viagra order cheap “He’s a very good skater. Viagra order cheap He’s fast. Viagra order cheap He stays in a crouch, viagra order cheap which he should anyways, viagra order cheap and he’s strong, viagra order cheap” Hunter said in defense of Hughes.

Viagra overnight With the NHL trade deadline just a day away, viagra overnight the rumor mill is heating up as teams start jockeying for positioning to make that one trade that will put them over the top or signal the start of a rebuilding process. Viagra overnight

Viagra overnight Pittsburgh GM Ray Shero already laid waste to the NHL trade market with his pre-deadline deals that brought in the likes of Brendan Morrow, viagra overnight Doug Murray and Jarome Iginla. Viagra overnight While Shero says he is done, viagra overnight his salary cap situation says otherwise. Viagra overnight According to CapGeek, viagra overnight the Penguins have the ability to add $18 million in annual average salary to their payroll.

Viagra overnight The Penguins have gone all in because all three of their acquisitions are UFAs and they might be facing a closing window of opportunity come the end of next season when Evgeni Malkin, viagra overnight Kris Letang, viagra overnight Brooks Orpik and Chris Kunitz become UFAs and Simon Despres and Brandon Sutter become RFAs.

Viagra overnight Conversely, viagra overnight the New York Rangers have the ability to add about $6.8 million in annual average salary come the deadline. Viagra overnight Unlike the Penguins who were adding to a powerhouse team, viagra overnight the Rangers have one-third the cap space to try and right a team that is fighting for their playoff lives.

Viagra overnight Faced with a dropping salary cap come next season, viagra overnight and a disinclination to trade away any of their prized prospects, viagra overnight the Blueshirts do not expect too active at the trade deadline. Viagra overnight Rather than the splashy headlines they made in 1994 on their way to the Stanley Cup, viagra overnight the best the Rangers can expect to do is tinker a little bit – reshuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic if you will.

Viagra overnight The Rangers and San Jose Sharks have spent a lot of time scouting each other. Viagra overnight From all indications, viagra overnight the Blueshirts focus was on Dan Boyle and Ryane Clowe. Viagra overnight While the Rangers could probably make Boyle’s contract work for this season, viagra overnight they would not be able to fit his $6.67 million contract next year unless Marian Gaborik headed west.

Viagra overnight In addition to the salary concern, viagra overnight Boyle has a limited no-trade clause and the Rangers could be one of eight teams on his veto list.

Viagra overnight Clowe fits well within Coach John Tortorella’s style and would bring some of that “jam” that Torts is always harping on. Viagra overnight Clowe is an UFA at the end of the season so the Rangers would only have to accommodate his prorated $3.6 million contract for this season. Viagra overnight Clowe would not be the direct answer to the Rangers offensive woes. Viagra overnight For those answers, viagra overnight you need the likes of Marian Gaborik and Brad Richards to start earning their big-time salaries. Viagra overnight

Viagra overnight Rather, viagra overnight Clowe helps add a physical aspect that the Rangers lost when they dealt away Brandon Dubinsky and let Brandon Prust leave as an UFA – both moves which were the right moves. Viagra overnight The problem is Glen Sather never adequately replaced those two players and a player like Artem Anisimov. Viagra overnight The 6-foot-2 and 225 pound Clowe has not scored a goal this season, viagra overnight but the Rangers are looking for him to create some space for the Blueshirt snipers to operate.

Viagra overnight San Jose President/GM Doug Wilson explained the Clowe situation from the Sharks perspective.

Viagra overnight “He’s one of these guys that’s feared and respected, viagra overnight he’s tough as nails, viagra overnight he can play the game, viagra overnight he’s a great teammate, viagra overnight and he’s a pending unrestricted free agent, viagra overnight” Wilson told The Associated Press.

Viagra overnight “As a player and a teammate, viagra overnight teammates know he has their back and he’s just a tremendous heart-and-soul competitor.”

Viagra overnight Apparently because of his no-trade clause, viagra overnight Clowe’s choices came down to the Rangers and Vancouver Canucks. Viagra overnight Kevin Allen of USA Today spoke to Vancouver GM Mike Gillis who told him, viagra overnight “It seemed like geography was a (determining) factor.”

Viagra overnight Allen then added his own take – “According to Gillis, viagra overnight Clowe liked the Vancouver situation, viagra overnight but preferred to move to the Eastern Conference team.

Viagra overnight Setting aside all talk of no-trade and no-movement clauses, viagra overnight the Rangers have made it clear they are loathed to move the likes of Chris Kreider or J.T. Viagra overnight Miller in trades and it is doubtful they would give up Dylan McIlrath or Brady Skjei before either blueliner had a chance to play for the Rangers.

Viagra overnight Salary cap concerns and an unwillingness to move their top prospects are not the only restriction the Rangers face in making a deadline deal. Viagra overnight Teams are always on the lookout for draft picks (especially first and second round picks) – and the Rangers have a problem there as well with their own first round draft pick belonging to the Columbus Blue Jackets as a result of the Rick Nash deal.

Viagra overnight The Clowe deal has robbed the Rangers of some of their 2013 assets – their own 2nd round pick and a 3rd round pick they acquired from Florida. Viagra overnight They may also face losing a 2nd round pick in 2014 if Clowe re-signs with the Rangers or if the team reaches the Eastern Conference Finals.

Viagra overnight Elliotte Friedman of CBC says the Rangers are among the teams showing a lot of interest in Curtis Glencross. Viagra overnight The LW would be a good fit in Tortorella’s system as he would bring some speed, viagra overnight a physical aspect and two-way play. Viagra overnight He can play on the power play, viagra overnight penalty kill, viagra overnight as well as skate a regular turn as a top 6-9 forward. Viagra overnight He has scored 20+ goals the last two years, viagra overnight but does have bouts of inconsistency (see, viagra overnight he IS a perfect Ranger).

Viagra overnight There are a couple of roadblocks. Viagra overnight Other teams might be more willing to “go all in” as compared to the Rangers. Viagra overnight Glencross does have a no-movement clause so he would to approve any deal to New York. Viagra overnight Also, viagra overnight he has one more year on his contract at $2.55 million before he becomes an UFA. Viagra overnight The salary isn’t that unreasonable, viagra overnight but with the cap dropping $6 million next season the Rangers would have to move some pieces before next season.
With the Rangers having limited resources, viagra overnight it might behoove them to concentrate their deadline conversations to strengthening their blue line. Viagra overnight

Viagra overnight The Rangers have options at forward if they decide to turn Kreider and Miller loose, viagra overnight with Jesper Fast (who practiced with the team on Tuesday) here and Oscar Lindberg potentially looming on the horizon.

Viagra overnight The team cannot afford to rely on Marc Staal’s return this season. Viagra overnight They need to proceed as if he is out for the rest of the year. Viagra overnight If he ends up being ready to play this year then it will be an unexpected bonus.

Viagra overnight The big problem is that defensemen are to the NHL what reliable pitching is to Major League Baseball teams – a wanted commodity that is not easy to acquire.

Viagra overnight The Rangers could look to the waiver-wire for a cheap (and quick) fix and claim d-man Kurtis Foster who was placed on waivers after Philadelphia acquired Kent Huskins from Detroit after the Red Wings signed collegiate free agent Danny DeKeyser. Viagra overnight Got it?

Viagra overnight Foster’s defensive ability will not make anyone forget Rod Langway, viagra overnight but his big and booming shot from the point could help the Rangers floundering power play. Viagra overnight If Tortorella is only going to give Roman Hamrlik five minutes of ice time, viagra overnight then Foster could get those minutes as a power play specialist.

Viagra overnight Cam Barker (Vancouver) and Steve Montador (Chicago) were also waived by their teams. Viagra overnight Montador has been out all season with a concussion and, viagra overnight according to The Hockey News, viagra overnight cleared waivers and was assigned to Rockford of the AHL. Viagra overnight I was a big Barker fan during his draft year, viagra overnight but he has not lived up to his hype and might not survive the Tortorella “death stare” the first time he missed an assignment that led to a goal against.
