Rangers är i trubbel

Bjurman: Devils och Lightning ser ut som vinnare – än så länge

HOCKEY

NEW YORK. Tampa och New Jersey ser ut som vinnare – och New York Rangers, återigen, som förlorare.

Men ännu har såväl Glen Sather som andra general managers möjligheten att rädda säsongen – och det behövs på flera håll.

Det är aningen tidigt att sätta sig till doms över NHL-klubbarnas sommaroperationer och komma med säkra utlåtanden om hur det kommer att gå i vinter; trupperna ska inte spikas förrän om två månader – i den mån det nu alls går att prata om att trupper spikas i den här ligan. Men man kan ju i alla fall konstatera att det hittills finns general managers som lyckats bra och andra som skött sina uppgifter ungefär lika briljant som BP-vd:n Tony Hayward.

Ypperligt i New Jersey

Old School Lou Lamoriello i New Jersey har varit förbluffande aktiv sedan free agent-fönstret öppnade för snart en månad sedan och ser ut att kunna skicka ut ett synnerligen konkurrenskraftigt lag på The Rock-isen i oktober. Ja, exakt hur konkurrenskraftigt vet vi förstås först när Kovaltjuks kontraktshärva trasslats ut, men även Jason Arnott, Henrik Tallinder, Anton Voltjenkov och Johan Hedberg – perfekt back-up till Marty Brodeur – är ypperliga förvärv.

Det ser även lovande ut på Floridas västkust. Inte nog med att Tampa Bay har snott åt sig Foppas kompis Simon Gagne, och installerat en väldigt intressant coach i unge Guy Boucher (plus Sverige-bekante Wayne Fleming som assisterande) – GM-rookien Steve Yzerman har enligt samstämmiga rapporter redan gjutit ny energi, nytt liv och ny optimism i hela Tampas organisation.

Dessutom kan man kallt räkna med att ungblod som Steven Stamkos och Victor Hedman tar ytterligare ett par kliv framåt. Lightning till slutspel, det törs jag slå fast redan nu.

Mark Messier – ta över!

Dit går däremot inte Rangers i år heller. Inte som det ser ut nu i alla fall. Med gårdagens värvning av Alexander Frolov förbättrades prognosen något, men det är fortfarande en sjuk patient som kippar efter luft i New York, svårt plågad av brist på centrar och försvarsspelare som räcker till mer än ett backpar av acceptabel NHL-klass. Mark Messier, snälla, ta över!

Även i Montreal (hur kan man göra sig av med Halak?), Calgary (hur kan man ta tillbaka Olli Jokinen?) och Philadelphia (hur kan man kasta så mycket pengar efter Zjerdev?) har fiaskoartade beslutsprocesser präglat sommaren – och om inte Brian Burke passar sig kan domen bli hård över honom också. Men han har fortfarande chansen att göra intryck med den Tomas Kaberle-affär som påstås vara nära förestående.

Chicago har skickat bort halva laget

För regerande mästarna blir det intressant.

Det är inte så många av dem kvar i Chicago, lönetaksmatematiken har ju tvingat Bowman junior att skeppa iväg nästan halva laget.

Nu väntar dessutom skiljedomstolsförhandlingar om målvaktssensationen Antti Niemis lön. Men Blackhawks är numer en extremt välskött klubb, så mitt tips är att det till sist blir kul i United Center i år också.

Snart vet vi, det är bara två månader kvar...
