Why didnt we get Yanni Gourde

Created by: LGR
Initial Creation Date: Aug. 25, 2021
Published: Aug. 25, 2021
Team: 2021-22 New York Rangers
Team Explanation
We could have gotten him for a draft pick or 2 from Tampa. Great 3rd line center who is locked up at a reasonable deal and knows how to win. Rangers need centers I also still haven't accepted the fact they traded Buch for nothing. So not impressed with Drury thus far

Drury rejects and spits the Fraser river in your face

The Drury who signed Goodrow, I think it's a great move, and traded for Reaves instead of just signing Buchnevich???

Tampa would have declines. if they had accepted this they would just lose another one of their forwards (Palat, Killorn, Colton, Joseph) anyway

Gourde had a NTC. Did the Rangers really have the cap to for Gourde?

I’d have preferred Gourde over Goodrow. A center core of Mika, Strome, Gourde and Rooney would’ve been quite good.

I mean the year after would be Mika, Chytil, Gourde and resigning Rooney or Barron. Still a good lineup. Gourde handles more of the defensive load, which he’s proven to do, letting the other guys be more geared to offense.

I'd rather lose Gourde for free than lose two players for a 2nd

Buch isn’t as good as we all think. Certainly not good enough to prevent younger players with high ceilings from moving up the line up. If he was as good as you think and what most on here think then we would have had way better offers. Just think about that, no one, wait, on STL wanted to add him for that price.
