Viagra effects on the penis The start of the 2013-2014 NHL season can’t come soon enough for hockey fans after losing nearly half of last season. Viagra effects on the penis It marks an important anniversary in New York Rangers history – the 20th anniversary of the slaying of the dragon at MSG. Viagra effects on the penis The new season also marks the debut of Alain Vigneault as the 35th head coach in Blueshirts history. Viagra effects on the penis Only time will tell if Rangers fans will refer to AV’s stint in the Big Apple as the Vigneault Era or the Vigneault Error.

Viagra effects on the penis In a season that features realignment, viagra effects on the penis new goal nets and the potential for a new hybrid icing system, viagra effects on the penis one intriguing subplot to this season is finding out who will win the “coaches’ trade” between the Rangers and Vancouver Canucks as former Rangers bench boss John Tortorella heads to the Pacific Northwest as the 17th coach in Canucks history.

Viagra effects on the penis While coaches are “hired to be fired”, viagra effects on the penis the swapping of Alain Vigneault and John Tortorella as coaches would sure make a 1994 Stanley Cup rematch even more riveting – especially when you consider both coaches were used as scapegoats for their General Managers inability to produce a winner.

Viagra effects on the penis While both GMs fired their coaches to deflect attention off of themselves, viagra effects on the penis they each had different reasons for utilizing the same game plan.

Viagra effects on the penis Rangers GM Glen Sather is no danger of losing his job any time soon. Viagra effects on the penis He is as close to having a job for life as any GM in sports. Viagra effects on the penis His reasoning for turning to a scapegoat is to protect/rebuild his reputation. Viagra effects on the penis Sather has not been the architect of a Stanley Cup champion since 1988. Viagra effects on the penis His bout with prostate cancer helped lend urgency to protecting/rebuilding his legacy.

Viagra effects on the penis Canucks GM Mike Gillis has to consider himself in survival mode. Viagra effects on the penis Although Vancouver is five-for-five in winning the Northwest Division during Gillis’ tenure, viagra effects on the penis the team has been knocked out in the Conference Quarterfinals (aka the first round) the last two years in five games (2012 to Los Angeles) and in four games (2013 to San Jose) while posting a pedestrain28-28 record in the playoffs.

Viagra effects on the penis Sather is looking to change the Rangers style of play for the third time in nine months. Viagra effects on the penis Leading up to last season, viagra effects on the penis Sather dealt away some of the “jam” that Torts often praised as the Rangers GM attempted to correct the Blueshirts offensive woes. Viagra effects on the penis In doing so he never really increased the Rangers offense, viagra effects on the penis rather he depleted the Rangers depth.

Viagra effects on the penis As a result, viagra effects on the penis Slats traded away Marian Gaborik in order to fill the depth holes that Sather had created as part of the Rick Nash trade and never filled via free agency or trade.

Viagra effects on the penis With salary cap constraints dictating policy, viagra effects on the penis Sather is once again looking to boost offense in the form of a new style of play – thus the hiring of Vigneault. Viagra effects on the penis Of course, viagra effects on the penis the Rangers would have had maneuverability within the salary cap had Sather simply bought out Brad Richards. Viagra effects on the penis

Viagra effects on the penis Given the potential bargain basement free agents that were available after the initial free agent frenzy, viagra effects on the penis the Rangers could have added depth at a reasonable price, viagra effects on the penis signed Derek Stepan to a longer deal rather than a bridge deal and used some of that Rangers depth to be more active in the trade market.

Viagra effects on the penis Mike Gillis has had a trying off-season as well. Viagra effects on the penis Vancouver’s GM faced the same dilemma that Neil Smith did at the end of the 1992-1993 season. Viagra effects on the penis Both Gillis and Smith had championship-caliber teams that languished in the playoffs and were facing major decision in terms of goaltending.

Viagra effects on the penis Smith had to make a decision between Mike Richter and John Vanbiesbrouck. Viagra effects on the penis While the VanRichterbrouck tandem worked well in the regular season, viagra effects on the penis it was a playoff failure. Viagra effects on the penis Smith decided on the younger Richter as he shipped Beezer to Vancouver prior to the 1993 Expansion Draft in exchange for future considerations. Viagra effects on the penis

Viagra effects on the penis Vancouver made the deal in order to expose Vanbiesbrouck in the Expansion Draft as a means of protecting their prospects – which worked as the goalie was the first player selected by Florida. Viagra effects on the penis In return, viagra effects on the penis the Rangers acquired Doug Lidster who would go on to play an important role late in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Viagra effects on the penis Smith then replaced Vanbiesbrouck by acquiring Glenn Healy from Tampa Bay in exchange for a 1993 third round draft pick.

Viagra effects on the penis It was pretty much an expected done deal that Roberto Luongo’s time in Vancouver was done – so much so that the veteran netminder put his townhouse up for sale. Viagra effects on the penis In a pre-cap NHL, viagra effects on the penis Gillis would have followed Smith’s example and moved the veteran goalie. Viagra effects on the penis However, viagra effects on the penis despite Luongo’s resume, viagra effects on the penis trading the 34-year-old became less and less an option when you factor in that he has nine years left on his 12-years, viagra effects on the penis $64-million contract at an annual cap hit of $5.3 million.

Viagra effects on the penis As you might imagine, viagra effects on the penis Luongo was stunned at the news that it was Cory Schneider who was dealt on draft day in exchange for New Jersey’s first round draft pick (Center Bo Horvat 9th overall).

Viagra effects on the penis On August 23, viagra effects on the penis Luongo spoke with TSN’s James Duthie and talked about the aftermath of the Schneider trade and his relationship with the Canucks. Viagra effects on the penis In that interview Duthie asked Luongo if he felt “divorced” from the Canucks following another playoff loss.

Viagra effects on the penis “Well I use that analogy all the time. Viagra effects on the penis That’s what it felt like and I accepted it and I was fine with it and I had moved on personally, viagra effects on the penis” Luongo admitted. Viagra effects on the penis “I mean, viagra effects on the penis the only problem is, viagra effects on the penis she didn’t, viagra effects on the penis and she wanted me back (laughs).”

Viagra effects on the penis In the interview Luongo says that he hoped e deal could be worked out with Florida or Tampa Bay because of his desire to return to the Sunshine State because his wife and her family are from Florida.

Viagra effects on the penis Luongo had grown so disenchanted by the end of last season that he even explored the possibility of voiding his contract.

Viagra effects on the penis So rather than have a younger goalie with a veteran backup like Smith’s Rangers had in 1994, viagra effects on the penis Gillis and his Canucks have a veteran goaltender who may or may not be disgruntled and his backup is 25-year-old Swedish goalie Eddie Lack who has yet to play an NHL game (99 AHL games during the last two seasons).

Viagra effects on the penis In 1994, viagra effects on the penis Neil Smith did not take the safe route when he hired Mike Keenan as coach. Viagra effects on the penis Smith had to know that he would bump heads with the fiery Keenan sooner rather than later – I just don’t think he expected their relationship to hit full boil as fast as it did.

Viagra effects on the penis Gillis is facing the same situation in Vancouver. Viagra effects on the penis While Tortorella doesn’t have the same GM aspirations that Keenan had, viagra effects on the penis his baggage does make Torts a risky hire – especially for a GM like Gillis who is hiring his first NHL coach. Viagra effects on the penis Gillis inherited a coach in Vigneault who had a Northwest Division title (2006-07) and a fifth place finish (2007-08) under his belt in Vancouver.

Viagra effects on the penis ON THE FLY –

Viagra effects on the penis The Rangers tryout offer to goaltender Johan “Moose” Hedberg is an interesting development. Viagra effects on the penis While it was announced at the same time Martin Biron was away from camp tending to personal matters, viagra effects on the penis could the Rangers be looking to make a switch in Henrik Lundqvist’s backup?

Viagra effects on the penis If the Rangers were to go with Hedberg, viagra effects on the penis the Blueshirts could look to trade Biron and save some much-needed space under the salary cap. Viagra effects on the penis

Viagra effects on the penis Since Hedberg was bought out by the Devils, viagra effects on the penis he might be very satisfied with a deal near the NHL minimum salary. Viagra effects on the penis If if he signed a deal worth $650, viagra effects on the penis000, viagra effects on the penis that is still half of what Biron will make this season. Viagra effects on the penis While it doesn’t seem like a lot, viagra effects on the penis $650, viagra effects on the penis000 is enough of a reason to make a switch – esepcially depending on how Derek Stepan’s contract eventually plays out.
