Buzz: Where Shane Doan and the Rangers Are At

According to Larry Brooks in the NY Post, Shane Doan is searching for a four-year deal and that the Rangers, along with Pittsburgh and Vancouver, are on his short list of teams he is willing to sign with.

Brooks writes that if Glen Sather is willing to go to four years on a contract there is a good chance that Doan becomes a Ranger.

He adds that there is a possibility that Doan could accept a three-year deal with the Rangers to play under John Tortorella once again.

Brooks writes that the Rangers primary interest in Doan is to replace some of the depth that they lost with Brandon Prust, Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov.

When MM is in a groove, as was the case a few times last season, he is like a philharmonic conductor.  He seems to give you the feeling of being in control.  The feeling just returned.

So does anybody know how to get my livefyre avatar to show when I post on the Jets blog?

Both need minimum 3 additional weapons IMO..


WR of your choice, TE of your choice, DAT or Archer..


And the LG can't blow chunks..

I guess Martys gonna shut down the thought of controversy. at the QB position.

Geno is better right now than Mark was at any point in his career. Let him play. He's got the arm, the legs, and the work ethic/attitude to excel in this league. He doesn't get caught in the bs. Just wants to be a better football player.

whoever crushes is it preseason is gonna start...


We all know this..


If it's a tie, Geno starts with slight wiggle room.. this we all know.

I didn't hear the call, but it sounds like Geno is the starter.  Is this not an open competition anymore?  Was it ever labeled that?

@bradysucks Same problem over here. I have one, but it doesn't transfer over when I post

@Marvel  I don't think he's intriguing.  Highly inconsistent player who doesn't have what it takes for the NFL.

@Marvel  He does, so some mid-round QB with flappy gums just lost himself a chance at the Jets.

@Marvel  


Agreed.  On O we need a quality WR and a top TE, plus the wild card that is DAT or Archer, etc.   


Would also add that on D we need a CB and an edge rusher.    


And I'd still like to get a road grader for the OL...


No need to pencil-in the names.   There's multiple options for each of them, and we all know who the difference-makers are.  


Go get 'em, Johnny.

ODB,ASJ, DAT in the 3rd. I think we are going to have to reach a little for DAT or Archer. There's some offensive coordinator day dreaming up a package for those guys.

@Marvel


I still think we should draft a box of o-line men with the first pic.


Dats Right you get six in a box. I think dats da way to go.


In the 2nd round we get a jar of receivers. they come 3 in a jar.


Dat da way to do it.....Ya ya dats right.

I've been a fan of his since watching the Eagles all those years. The man can design offense witht the best of them. He just gets a little too pass happy for me at times. That was his downfall amongst Eagle fans.

@Marvel  I'll make a friendly bet with you that doesn't happen.  I'll bet you Geno is starter unless he plays just god awful.

@t__k  No, that wasn't what was said.


He will get the first reps in minicamp and will get more reps than Vick at the outset, but they were still talking about a competition between the two of them.

@Brendan @Marvel  Kinda strange that this comes out with the news at around the same time Steiny posts a list of all of the people the Jets had visit, including Savage.

@gbrownn

 one will be there in the 4th.. if not there are similar players that can be had after the 3rd.

Hazard2012

@gbrownn  


But a lot of them have GM's with less than 12 picks.   DAT's a luxury, for a team with lots of picks and who already has a stacked backfield. He's probably going to have to be one of our 4th round picks...but we can afford it.   Same applies for Archer.

@gbrownn But paired with run-loving Rex... they could end up building something dangerous over the next 2 seasons.

@Marvel @t__k  before your A falls off from laughing, check my first comment.  I ididn't hear the call, but yea, that's what it sounds like.  Geno is the starter.  Clearly I'm attempting to read between the lines.

Hazard2012

@Bent @t__k  


I take this to mean that "nothing impedes the young QB's progression" except the young QB.    It's Geno's job to lose...Vick is there if he falters.   


No new news in that.  

t__k
t__k

@bklyndude @t__k  I mean you hear competition at every position, then you hear that Geno is the starter basically...which is it?  I'd think Vick is the better QB right now.

@Bent @a57se 

24 visits lined up, had to turn down more requests because there wasn't enough time left until the draft....

Bent

@a57se @Bent  Didn't he have 22 visits and then had to start cancelling them or something?

@Bent  

and this is the first time Savage has been linked with the Jets despite numerous stories on him the past couple weeks including lists of several teams he has visited.

Bent

@__fense @Brendan @Marvel  FWIW the teams do have to officially disclose their 30 visits and that is shared with the other 31 teams so does generally make it into the public domain eventually anyway.

@Marvel @Hazard2012 While I agree they are luxuries, I don't think thats going to stop those guys from being overdrafted. DAT scored 36 in 2 years. I have to think someone (even gms) have him circled on their draft board right now. Tavon Austin went in the top 10 out of nowhere it seemed. I see DAT having the same type of rise. To clarify, I don't see him going to the top ten. But I think the 4th is realllly stretching, if he's there in the 4th I'm taking him with that 1st pick no questions asked. I just don't know if that'll happen.

@Jesse DeBear

Hopefully Rex doesn't end up punching him on the sideline if he does get too pass happy!

gbrownn

Hopefullly we pick up on that note we left on! It ultimately falls all on Geno(gonna be saying that alot this offeseason)

__fense

@gbrownn  But then they corrected that mistake and found a compromise, and that was when the offense was at it's absolute best.

gbrownn

@ Jesse DeBear I think it can go either way. I thought the offense was at it's absolute worse (thats saying alot) when Rex had Marty scale back the offense for whatever reason after the Saints game.

 lol, went to the other thread..


But I'm not partial to either player..


May the best man win.. no predictions

Bent

@a57se @Bent  Hey, if he's not the best man for the job, then starting Vick but not giving up on Geno is the best way forward.  Hopefully that's the plan.

a57se

@Bent @a57se

That is another way to interpret it.........though I don't see how you could look at Vick starting NOT impeding Geno's progress.

Bent
Bent moderator

@a57se @Bent @Hazard2012  I would interpret it to mean "Don't worry, if Vick does happen to become the starter, we're not going to forget about Geno and we're still going to try and develop him as best we can".

a57se
a57se

@Bent @Hazard2012

That could easily be interpreted to mean Geno is not losing this competition

Bent

@Hazard2012 @Bent @t__k  I think the headline might be a bit misleading.  To add context to that quote, what was actually said was:


"We'll structure the competition in such a way that ... nothing impedes the young QB's progression".
