The Rangers trade Vladimir Namestnikov to Ottawa for a 4th rounder and minor league defenseman.

https://www.blueshirtbanter.com/2019/10 ... a-senators

The Rangers retain about $750K in salary. He's in the final year of a deal that pays him $4 million AAV.

Namestnikov was at his best as the "center" between Stamkos and Kucherov in Tampa. He kinda acted as the defensive conscience of that line. Personally I don't think those two worked as well without him and with J.T. Miller in his place, and obviously Vlad never found a fit with the Rangers.

This frees up a decent amount of cap room for NY, who are probably eyeing a pretty big move at the deadline if things go well this season.

Think they'll wait for the deadline? I think they'll go for another move sooner. This is NY, where people expect rebuilds to happen overnight. Which the frigging Rangers have pretty much managed. :chairshot:

Teams are not messing around this season: Marc Staal a healthy scratch.

Has Kravtsov gone home yet? He's mad he's in Hartford, like most people in Hartford.

Chris Kreider re-signs for 7 years at 6.5M AAV. Everyone figured he'd be sacrificed for the rebuild that never really happened.

Whatever...second time around that the Rangers half-assed their rebuilding efforts.

I'm kinda done with this team. They've been a novelty item for me for years but I just don't like anything that they're doing, and that includes trying their damndest to force King Henrik out. If you're do THEN JUST FUCKING DO IT. And now they really can't afford to because their star player and favorite whipping boy forward got in a car accident and Shestyokin (and that's the way it should be spelled, not "Shesterkin") is out at least two weeks with a rib fracture.

So many players on this team I just dislike. DeAngelo, Lindgren, and Kreider. I also really don't like David Quinn as an NHL coach.

All this and they still don't really have what most people agree are the two most important components toward building a contender: A legit #1 defenseman and an elite scoring line center.

And now the Rangers might be trading Brady Skjei to Carolina? So weird.

They're been really sour on him for a while. He's never met expectations, and the acquisition of Trouba and emergence of DeAngelo make him expendable.

The saddest thing is that it kinda dates the "Let's Do That Hockey" skit on SNL.

That was an insane fucking game. They get a 5-4 lead thanks to Zibanejad with less than a minute left in regulation, then Ovechkin scores on the next shift! All setting up Zibanejad's OTGWG right afterward.
