    I'd like to thank John Tavares for the fabulous time he had in New York. Spending his whole career here and getting 1365 points. One of the greatest players to ever play in the blue and orange ever. Unfortunately we could't get him a cup, he deserved one more than the New Jersey Devils.

    On another note, I will do 2 more years in this GM Mode. It gets boring after awhile with all of the good players retiring and EA logic. Anyways, thanks for staying with me all this time (If you are still even here lol).

    TRADE:
    New York Rangers Recieve:
    Lewis Fitzpatrick (83 Overall Med. Top 4 D)

    New York Islanders Recieve:
    New York Rangers 3rd Round Pick (2026)
    Tyler Biggs (66 Overall Exact AHL 4th Line F)

    We had too many left handed defensemen on the roster, and Fitzpatrick didn't fit. We get a decent pick, and Biggs is so the move can go through.

    Year 10 Sign Phase:

    Notable Resignings:
    Nick Leddy
    Brock Nelson
    Tommy Gormley
    Anthony Beauvillier
    Nikolai Goldobin
    Markku Laitinen
    Jeff Parish
    Wyatt Hoflin

    Notable Releases:
    Adam Larsson
    Felix Soderström

    Notable Free Agent Signings:
    Johnny Gaudreau
    Nick Bjugstad
    Bernd Kolzig

    The loss of Tavares was huge for us, so we needed to find a replacement in free agency. Of course it isn't a full replacement, but Bjugstad can be a good second line center. Gaudreau can light the lamp on the first line and be on the powerplay. Finally, Kolzig is defensive depth. This is my last attempt at a cup, than I think we need to start an accelerated rebuild.

    is this the type of year where you will trade picks and prospects for vets for the cup?

    What overall and potential was Tavares when he retired? If you remember that is.

    It depends on where we stand at the deadline. If I think we are good enough for a cup run, I'll maybe trade some picks and prospect. If not, I won't trade our prospects or picks.

    He was 95 overall, and I think 5-stars but I am not sure.
