@jasonshyer I believe "injured" means they do not pass a physical at the end of the season.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers Not Buying Out Richards
@Snot-Bubbler If he wanted to stay then, he could have. If he wanted to stay now, he could have. Simple as that.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Messier Leaves Rangers
We all put him on such a high pedestal because of what he did for this organization and it is very much deserved. But the fact is he left the Rangers to go to Vancouver when he didn't get his way and he is doing the same thing now. I love Messier, but I hope this serves as a message to the Rangers that unless we are prepared to give The Captain the keys to the ferrari next time, he has no place being a part of this organization.
@Tom Jerhada I think letting DZ go before giving him a shot with Vigneault would be a big mistake. AV plays a much more open system and tolerates mistakes much better than Torts. The more laid back attitude may be what DZ needs instead of Torts' voice in the back of his head every time he touched the ice. Same goes for Kreider, they both have a lot of potential in this new system.
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Flyers Would Absolutely Be Interested in Richards; Briere to Rangers?
@queensbee I think it has to do with the coach's contract with the club. Torts signed a 3 year extension on his contract back in january, I'd imagine anyone interested in speaking with him about a job would have to get permission from Dolan/Sather

@jgaray @RyanMC @KevinDeLury Nobody wants that contract which is the catch 22 of this whole situation.
9 months, 1 week ago on Richards Would Like to Return to Dallas
@KevinDeLury @RyanMC Very true. Just not something I'd expect from someone who preached about "just wanting to play" during the lock out and someone who is a leader on the team and has a letter on his chest.
He should not be a greedy prick and request a trade rather than waiting until he's bought out and collecting two paychecks.
@fs2020 Little bit of a different story with the canucks though, they went from the Stanely cup finals, to getting swept by the 8 seed, to getting swept once again the following year by the 6 seed. A trip to the ECF and the ECSF in back to back years is not a fireable offense.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on No Indication From Rangers Organization That Torts' Job In Jeopardy
@gravey94 I want nothing to do with the pens. 1-3-1 vs them this year but since we aren't talking points for all intents and purposes we are 1-4 vs them this year. 2-1-0 vs the Bruins this year and 3-0-0 vs the the caps. 6th is obviously ideal but I would much rather play the B's first round. Original Six matchup and I would love to play the villain for that city. Also the way I look at it, if we play boston 1st round and lose at least it was against a respectable team with a lot of skill and depth. Losing to the caps 1st round would be losing to a lesser team in my eyes. Kind of a backwards way of looking at it but I would much rather play Boston.
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Rangers Move Into 7th Place
Remember last year when a 6 seed and an 8 seed were in the cup finals? You must not follow hockey enough to realize any time that makes it has a shot.
@PenaltySh0t Of all the ridiculous things I've heard against Torts this season, this takes the cake. You really think he actually told them to keep shooting glove side? You say it so definitively like you were on the bench to hear him say it. You shoot at what you get, not what you want. Mason wasn't giving them the blocker side.
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Frustration Builds for Richards
@Betweentheworlds Jut stop. Hank is a grown man and an athlete, he knows his limits and wouldn't let a coach force him to play hurt, no athlete would. Like a couple others have said he wouldn't make comments to the media without getting checked out. If you think the Rangers medical staff wasn't checking on him after Girardi's Elbow and Ribiero's shot than you're outside your mind. And as for the torts bashing, I'm sure you were praising him this time last year...

@KevinDeLury Stop it right now kevin
@gravey94 I like Penner for the Rangers but again, definitely not for Gaborik.
11 months, 3 weeks ago on Rangers Talking to Kings About Gaborik?
@chrisD @RyanMC He ignored the hit on Mac and he missed games. I really hope he does bring the hammer down on Kaleta but I just don't see a serious punishment coming. We'll find out this afternoon, no reason for him to get anything short of 4 or 5 games. He's a two time offender.
1 year ago on Did Kaleta Hit Finally Turn Rangers Into a 'Team'?
I wouldn't want to jump the gun on bringing either of these two back just yet. It may be message received on Kreider's end of it but the team is clicking right now and that isn't something to be messed with. Let him stay down there a little while longer where he is producing. Getting recalled after putting up a couple points would only make the roller coaster the Rangers have put him on worse.
1 year ago on Kreider Scores 2nd PP Goal in Two Games for Whale
@chrisD He returned to the game and played well after the hit, that shouldn't play a role in the decision but we all know what happens when it's a hit against the Rangers. He should get 5 games at the least since he is a repeat offender but I'm not holding my breathe on that.
Looks wise, Hags. Importance wise, Nash. Like everyone else has said Nash's goal is huge for Richie. A sick assist through two defensemen and going 17 for 20 on faceoffs is exactly what he needs to be doing every game. Hopefully this sticks for the whole team.
1 year ago on Sweeter Goal: Nash or Hagelin?
@Dminches @rangersfan Coaching staff and players share blame equally. We don't have the fighters anymore so thats part of it. Asham and bickel dont get enough ice time to fight and neither did mashinter. The players are playing unmotivated hockey do the coached try shuffling things around to get something going but it doesnt work so they keep shuffling lines. It's a vicious cycle which is going to be the downfall of this team if it doesnt stop soon. Both sides need to take a step back and realize this.
