Do NOT do that dumbsh#t Knick thing of being passive then rebuilding every 2-3 seasons.


Who is that guy, is the question. I’m not convinced, based on what I’ve been reading, that there’s a game-changer out there aside from Dahlin. After Dahlin there are a couple very good forwards with boom potential then like seven or eight guys with similar value. So it’s either getting into the top three or sticking it out at nine. Just my opinion. I’m no draft expert.

From everything I've read, Rangers are in the worst spot bc there are 8 great talents and after that, the drop off is significant. Let's hope Rangers trade up w their draft capital.

Gawd I am hoping they use their 3 first rounders to move up and draft a key cog. Otherwise next season is going to be a long one.

So can we say the Rangers won the deals with Boston?
Utah Jazz
Jokic x Plumlee
Gordon x Sabonis x Ellenson
Fournier x Luwawu-Cabarrot
Russell x Abrines
Conley x Valentine

The Rangers already won the trade with Boston, they are also going to win the trade with Tampa Bay because the Lightning are going to destroy Washington en route to the Stanley Cup and next season, that second rounder becomes another first rounder.

Here's the thing, to be a complete victory we gotta see how good Gorton is at drafting. As far as talent he received in trades, it's been "meh." ALL of the forwards he received are 40 pt players trying to convince the Rangers they are 80 pt players worth $$$$$. I'm sorry to say, NONE of those guys are 80 pt players.

However the Rangers have a million picks in the draft. Can they find ONE go-to guy?

The difference being the Rangers have a great shot moving up to #5 if they play their cards right.

Sounds like BU's David Quinn will be the next head coach

I don't have much of a like/dislike...to me, this off-season will be de-fined by how well the Rangers draft and handle free agency.

Return to New York Knicks
