High-lander for Nylander?

So the word on the street is that Michael Nylander is testing the open market this trading season -- he currently is in the $2M range per season and will be looking for the $3-4.5M range in order to stay a Ranger.

Here is how The Dark Ranger feels about Mr. Nylander. If $2M isn't enough, then "Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish!" As part of the Jagr-Straka line and though his points would support that he is a huge asset to the team, I haven't seen the chemistry between on the line. Yes -- he is a playmaker. Yes -- he is Swedish. He is worth $2M and not much more, because he is riding on Jagr. Without Jamomir, he is worth $1.5M. For a guy who has been known to boost his team's power play, it didn't help much this 'power play playoff season.' For someone who entered professional hockey in the early 90's, this guy has jumped around team-after-team as much as Hollweg gets hit in the face. Plus he has a small head.

Get rid of him and take a Gomez, Drury, Brierre....bring him on. Let's get this trading bullshit going.....THE DARK RANGER is ready for October!!!

Any offer of 'tickets at cost' is exactly that -- I have season tickets and will sell them for what I paid --- so no mark-ups.
