NFT: Sounds like Kaapo Kakko will likely wear #24 for the NYR

Anakim : 9/10/2019 12:34 pm
After that performance yesterday, he can wear #11 for all I care

BREAKING: Boo Nieves wearing No. 15 on helmet at NYR informal skate. Apparently someone else will be wearing 24 at camp. (Told that Nieves approached trainers this morning and asked for change).

Let's pump the brakes on that. I know you were probably still shitting in diapers in 94, but there is a reason 11 is hanging from the rafters and still heavily involved with the franchise.

Does Nieves not know of the Tanner Glass curse?

Well, in his prime :P Lindros was a Ranger, but that was several concussions later

Unless Kakko grows a lot, not sure these two are at all similar.

Lindros was a physical beat (and played that way). Kakko has decent size.

I don't like the Jagr comparisons either, but that's closer to the upside and type of player but I don't think Kakko will be a 50-goal scorer, but who knows.

Unsigned DeAngelo and Lemieux both skating with group at NYR training center. Talks continue but no progress at this point. Lemieux has been here for about a month, working at Prentiss. DeAngelo joined group yesterday.

Lemieux signed a one-year deal so only Tony D is left

$925,000, so he received more than his Q.O.
That would leave  
pjcas18 : 9/11/2019 10:26 pm : link
just over $1M for DeAngelo.

DeAngelo was projected at much more than that on a LT deal, but who knows, maybe they get it done on a bridge deal with minimal pain.

Still holding out hope for a trade involving Namestnikov, Staal and/or Smith, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
He's obviously not going to be another Jagr  
Greg from LI : 9/12/2019 10:02 am : link
But there are similarities in style. Not seeing a Lindros comparison at all.

Also, while he's not the tank Jagr was for most of his career, was Jagr even that tank when he entered the league as a teenager? We'll see how Kakko fills out.
Just give Namestnikov away by attaching him to a pick  
Greg from LI : 9/12/2019 10:03 am : link
and be done with it.

Yeah, he'll be much better.
I've been unhappy with the cap management.  
BrettNYG10 : 9/12/2019 10:05 am : link
Love the rebuild, but I think they fucked up the cap. Leftover from legacy deals when going for the Cup in 13-15. But it sucks.
