Rangers acquire Strome for Spooner

Good afternoon Boneheads! Better late than never, eh? As most know by now the Rangers made an uncharacteristically early trade last night sending Ryan Spooner to Edmonton in exchange for center/winger Ryan Strome.

Strome, 25 was the fifth overall pick by the Islanders in the 2011 draft and hasn’t done much since scoring 50 points in 2014-15.

Spooner, who impressed after coming over at the deadline in the Nash deal had signed a 2 year deal this summer. It took all of 16 games this season for the Rangers to decide he wasn’t a good fit for Dave Quinn’s system.

This is one of those change of scenery/ your mistake for our mistake deals that could benefit the Rangers’ bottom six since Strome is a possession guy who should be an effective PK’er and jump in front of Lettieri on the fourth line.

Good Morning all. I didn’t get to see the game last night so I can’t really react to the loss.

I do want to say something though. I may not be as articulate or well received as ILB and  I don’t have some perfectly elegant way of describing my feelings about what was going on in the comments section last night. Nor do I have magic words that will put people in their place or make them apologetic. But I will say this: It made me sick. And had ILB read it he would have been sick too.

We are an interesting bunch here and we discuss or joke about a wide variety of nonsense sometimes. And truth be told we have our moments where things get out of hand, heated or downright inappropriate. Last night was one of those times and the content that was being posted really shouldn’t happen again. This blog isn’t the most well maintained site on the internet but the comments section has always been an enjoyable experience for any and all fans that want to partake in it. I’ll be damned if anyone will ever be made to feel like they aren’t welcomed here because of what is written on it. Hope you all have a great start to your week.

From RR2:

Good morning, Boneheads. That’s just about the kind of game you want to see this year. We played good and hard but still lose. You’d like to see a bit more finish, but the effort and the control of the game was there.
