Rangers Will Not Make Offer to Lisin

Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports the Rangers will not extend a qualifying offer to Enver Lisin, who would have been due a qualifying offer of $829,500.

Lisin, who recorded just 14 points last season, will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

...this isn't a surprise as Lisin struggled, aided by a foot injury, all season during his first year and now only year with the Rangers.

Another GM knowing something Sather doesn't? C'mon.

oh no, now we'll never win the cup!!

yet another marginal body, with way too much time and effort spent trying to decide whether and where he should play.

I had high hopes for this kid when the trade was made he appeared to be a up & coming young talented russian speedster instead he turned into another russian dud as we've seen to often in the past.

Lisin for Korpikoski = FAIL.

Shane, that definitley ends up being a bad trade for the Rangers.

What we should take away from this in not that Lisin didn't work out, it's what we gave up for him. We gave up Korpikoski, who was a first round pick (19th in 04) who we brought up slowly in our own system. What do we have for that first round pick & developmental investment now? Nothing. Ipso Facto first round bust. It's that history that makes me wonder if the #10 pick for Horton might not have been the worst thing for us.

the guy we gave up was no bargain either. 11 pts. deal was pretty much a non event.

clarks picks seem to have improved last 2-3 yrs. so i don't want the pick traded

How will the team survive without a speedy former Coyote winger inexplicably playing on the fourth line? Is there a chance we could get Viktor Tikhonov or somebody to fill that role?

Juan Valencia said...

I think that Lisin will go to KHL

chef dave said...

Does anyone know when Clark took over & what his first pick was? I do admit we've been a bit better drafting as of late.

"Never Lisin"
