Carnival Attraction w/ Zero Goals in Four Years Gets Four Year Deal : Derek Boogaard For Dummies Video
Glen Sather couldnt wait to unleash his stupidity on the free agency market on July 1st and although he didnt do anything too catastrophic (yet), the small dose of WTF he did dole out came in the form of the free agent signing of former Minnesota Wild goon and former Marian Gaborik teamate Derek Boogaard.
To understand the growing dementia let's rewind to last year enforcer debacle.
Slats in infinite wisdom decided "to get quicker" in last years UFA market by signing the horrific Donald Brashear and not re-sign a much younger and hard working Colton Orr.
Brashear ended up being a disaster, wound up in the minors and then enter Jody Shelley. Shelley, also a bit long in the tooth played admirably towards the end of the season.
After the season Shelley and his agent approached Sather about signing awith the Blueshirts. They were looking for a three year deal.
Always the shrewd negotiator, Sather felt three years for a 37 year old enforcer was too much at 1.1 Million per. So Instead, Mr. Magoo decided to go the enforcer youth movement route and sign the younger Boogaard who is 28 and lock him in for a ridiculous four years at 1.65 million per.
Now the Rangers are saddled with 3+ million dollars of cap space dedicated to two players who will net about four minutes of ice time per game during the upcoming season.
The Mouth as always gives his verbose opinion on the video below :
Ranger Crisis is a video blog hosted by The Mouth. Established in February 2009 Ranger Crisis was created to discuss New York Ranger Hockey from the fans point view as well as explore the lighter side of being a Ranger fan through a satirical lens. However, in this case the lens is being wielded by a 48 yr old boccalone who has been following the Rangers since he was 10 like it was a religion.
The Mouth also has more Complete Ranger games and Ranger archival footage 1952-1985 than any other person on the planet. The big guy from time to time will crank up the time machine and share these video gems with his fellow Ranger fans with the intent to hearken them back to the simpler days before salary cap and Gary Bettman.
So sit back and enjoy Blue Shirt fans as it's all beamed right onto your computer desk for your enjoyment. We wholeheartedly thank you for stopping by and most importantly as always say...
