On the eve of  New York Rangers training camp beginning, the Blueshirts announced on Wednesday night they have agreed on a one-year contract with Brendan Lemieux. Lem’s IQ and motor is questionable so I’m not buying your “engaged” narrative of his. He’s ok! The other forward he was with for a majority of his time was Kaapo Kakko (31% of his even strength time). Someone who WOULD be a great fit for this team is Boone Jenner. Lemieux is EXACTLY what this team needs, we saw his influence in Game 3 against Carolina … clearly our best game of the series and in no small measure due to the type of play we saw from Lemieux. Larry Brooks recently wrote about the topics of both Lemieux and Strome. Considering what Strome cost us (Ryan Spooner), it might be a good thing to leave him exposed and shed the cap hit. That makes sense, as there are three far more important RFAs to deal with. Now would Columbus trade him? The side deals mostly worked out terribly for the teams that did them. Chytil He is a rough and tumble sandpaper guy and is extremely tough around the net. I threw out TD as a trade chip and then stated I doubt that would be enough. He was engaged and his aggression level high. The restricted free agent had declined the qualifying offer that general manager Jeff Gorton and the organization submitted last June. I could easily see Strome left unprotected if they sign him to a 2 year deal. Feb 11 2015 Traded to Buffalo (BUF) from Winnipeg (WPG) with Evander Kane and Jason Kasdorf for Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Brendan Lemieux, Joel Armia and 2015 1st round pick Jul 29 2013 Signed a 7 year $36 million contract with Winnipeg (WPG) Then you have deployments which he has a bad past in.. Quinn has tried him in every role that there is since the trade to NY. With this signing, defenseman Anthony DeAngelo remains the only player not under contract. Lemieux missed a portion of the season, finishing with a line of 6-12-18 in 59 games. I suggest MacDermind, and get all dislikes…but you suggest trading for Boone Jenner, who, I like but your saying Tony D, plus more to get him and no one disagrees with that…you guys seriously have very little idea what it takes to win playoff hockey games. He would benefit greatly from Tort’s tough-love approach and would add depth to their blueline bind Werenski and Jones. It’s also worth noting that Lemieux was one of the better players at drawing penalties last season. Just a thought anyone like Matt Martin for a 1 or 2 yr deal. He scored 30 goals in 2015-16, but that is definitely an outlier. I think he is a more appropriate 12-14 forward on this team. RIP Dale……………. I don’t understand your fetish for borderlineAHL type of players.. A Pee Wee player, who wants to analyse everyone’s post, and then shows his stupidity as shown here: “Than you had names who were always undersized like Cal Clutterbuck or Blake Comeau”. (I think Buch gets traded). He is no Derek Dorsett who could multi task in various roles and do a good job at it. Guys like Reaves and Wilson have that IQ to know where to staple someone or put someone else on their backside in any of the zones. That makes sense, as there are three far more important RFAs to deal with. Might be doable. We do need 1 or 2 more players like him. Right now all he has to offer are poor special teams skills (PP or PK, either way he provides very little value in of those skill zones). You need to take into account trades? He’s an RFA with zero leverage. “running every Isle player that he could, every chance that he got.” For a tall player he keeps his arms tuck down for clean hits… He also rarely charges but knows how to read a hit to glide into bodies. That’s actually pretty good given how much Kakko and Howden struggled on defense this year. Lem’s pennies should go into Jesper’s bank account. This was why he wasn’t a Torts type player… I don’t see Quinn being a fan of his neither.. What influence did Lem have in game 3? Lemieux was a much-needed piece to the team’s puzzle—a young, aggressive player who can play on the third or fourth line with the versatility to do whatever the coaching staff asks of him. I’m not denying Lem’s spot over here but like I said it’s by default. I said it was doubtful he would be traded, and it is doubtful for all the reasons I stated, not to mention that he wears an “A” for CBJ. On the eve of New … He doesn’t have the motor or size to play a power foward type game liked he claimed to last off-season. As to what his contract will be, no more that $1.2, which would be a nice increase for the kid. This is just a feeling I have. He also doesn’t have the smarts to take runs in the nz or dz without going out of position. The Rangers noticed how they lost to the Canes, and the “we have to be harder to play against” all but guarantees Lemiuex a spot here. It won’t be Martin, but I guarantee you that the Rangers saw Tom Wilson running every Isle player that he could, every chance that he got. The Rangers will definitely add a little more sandpaper in addition to re-signing Lemieux. I doubt though, that they make any deals with the Kraken to not take him. Lemieux, 23, was acquired along with a 2019 first-round pick in exchange for Kevin Hayes at the trade deadline in February 2019. Martin is nowhere near effective as he was before his Leaf’s deal and now he is 31 and the NYR should want no part of that.
