never heard of Skeki.  Anyone know anything about him?  should we be excited for this dude?  

 

2 dmen and a center today.  not bad.  Lets go Ned, your time to shine.   Ned needs to realize that he could lead us to and win a Stanley Cup and earn the starter job for next year(Cam Ward style). 

Yes you have. It's pronounced SHAY. Brady Shay.

 

You're gonna like him.

Skjei

Big, two-way defenseman. 
 

The thing is, I was actually more impressed with him when he first got into the league than I have been recently. Don’t think he is a world-beater, don’t think he is a bad player. I think he’s a solid NHL defenseman with upside.

A should be AHLER  .  He needs more room to develop. 

Seriously dude, is it the water you drink, or what? He's a $5.5 million NHL D man who is only in minus territory because his former team sucks.

Just what we need at the moment, and maybe a little Southern Comfort is just what he does.

Dude hits and blocks a ton of shots for being an offensive contributor.  He will look pretty good next to Pesce.  A lot less oops moments. 

 

This has to mean Gardiner is gone.  If not now, in the off-season.

I do believe those days are over. And they won't be missed.

Definitely-  95% of that Minus came in the year the rangers finished with 77 points.

Well  he does play physical , lets just hope he can do so better than Fleury ,  But giving up a 1st  has me feeling we got fleeced . 

You do realize it's not like we're in a position to call the tune at the moment, right? We need these deals more than the teams we're making them with need to do them.
