Great game love to see the Rangers gut it out. I was never a big Boyle fan, but that guy played great! Lundqvist amazing, it's funny what happens when you give someone $60mil.
How about we keep Richards, make him captain and buy-out Nash? I St. Louis Mom stopped that puck. It was like the puck vanished for a split second. Then Lundqvist threw it out.

I was reading the player reactions to the Cally trade. Did any player say to Cally your crazy for asking that much money? Or did any player say, stay here for less we all love you. It's Cally own fault he got traded. We all will miss him, but we have to move on.

Like I said in an earlier post, Cally is damaged goods. He will
never play a full season or score more then 30 goals. Now i am changing that to no

Cally is damaged goods! He will never play a full season or score more than 20 goals. 5 year 4 million per thats it.

It's a different team when Cam is in goal. They play faster, tougher and give a complete game. Is it possible for some unknown reason the team shuts down when Hank is in goal?

Great article, spot on. I think the Rangers are lacking leadership on the ice. They need captains who can go out there and set the tempo. Captains who can take charge on the ice. You left out a few things about Hank besides stick handling, high glove hand shots,too many soft goals and weak playoff showings.

@Betweentheworlds Ok but do you really think Sather can get someone better? Look at his track record.
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Vigneault Hints At Change In Personnel As Team Holds Closed Door Meeting
And enough about Richards he is leading the team in goals and points.
Ok all i here is the team can't play with a soft coach. They can't play with a tough coach. Give me a brake the team needs leadership on the ice. When Mess was the captain he did not put up with any bullshit. He would be in the players shit if they didn't perform. i say change all the whimp ass captains and get people in there who want to play, win, and lead. All the the UFA's are crying like bitches that the King took all the cap space.
So, if he plays 60 games that equals $2361 per minute of play.
9 months ago on Lundqvist to Be Extended for 7 Years, $8+ Million Per
I love Av's move here. The message to Hank is, if you want to play 60+ games and have us pay you $2000 per minute, you better up your game or you will be on the outside looking in. He's not the first player to be benched for sub-par play. I want to see Cam play on Dec. 8th and 18th.

Get Hags in ASAP. What success is everyone talking about? We won the last game in OT. If you are talking about "Don't Mess with Success" Put Cam Talbot back in net. He was the difference. He is fast side to side, quick recovery, and quick glove.

This is in response to Paulie,first of all I am a huge fan. I have been a
fan since 1970. I have seen it all. But I have never seen such an embarrassing display
of game play. Instead of them standing around with dumb looks on their faces watching
players skate around score goals. Hit somebody. Come out hitting,have some pride. Enough already. I’ve seen
Gabby get beat up, cheap shots to players heads, hacking at the goaltender and
nothing is done about it. The team needs
to play with some grit, they need to play tough as a team. Not go out there and
have a fight. But be Team Tough, is what they need. As history goes the Rangers
have good seasons with mean coaches. Maybe they need another one? I’m glad they got that big jumbo score board.
Now the fans can see the other teams scoring highlights. Also Lundqvist needs
to get his head out of his ass and stop worrying about his paycheck and play
Lundqvist is a nightmare, we will never win a cup with him in net. Torts had the players block shots for a good reason. Lundqvist sucks. They traded away all the people that can score. The defense is weak and worthless. And we need a Captain who can lead. If Sather had balls he drop the whole team to Hartford and bring up guys who want to play. It looks like the team had zero conditioning. They can't keep up the pace.
How about we trade Lundqvist forGaborik, Dubinsky and Anisimov.
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Sharks: A lot, Rangers: A lot less
I would say the Rangers looked a little quicker then last year. They had a pretty good start. Richards looked better, he'll be fine. They need some grit. They don't need a tough player they need to play tough as a team. If Lundqvist countinues to play like this it's back to shot blocking.

@thenyrblogneill @KevinDeLury @BigBrian1226
WRONG!!! The 94 team had it all speed, size, toughness, Scoring power, clutch players. You don't blow your wad on a goaltender when you have a weak team.
1 year, 2 months ago on Lundqvist Extension Talks Begin; Richards Decision Coming Shortly; No Commitment on Clowe
Of course he was important, but almost every season was a losing one. 94 was a fluke. After 94 he took a nose dive. You might blame that on his knees. BTW how are the Kings knees?
I think everybody would agree that in 7 playoff seasons Lundqvist has not impressed. It doesn't take a great goalie to win a cup, it takes a great team. In 94' the Rangers had a great team and an average goalie. You may say that Richter stepped it up in the playoffs and i would agree. That's what a goalie needs to do. But it was the team that won the cup not just the goalie.
I say offer him 6 mil, if he doesn't take it let him walk. We need a better team before you give up the farm on a goaltender.
Another rule change should be, if a player fights without removing his helmet. he gets an extra 2 min,

1 year, 4 months ago on Boyle Still Wearing Brace & Limping
We need more of Moore! Here’s a kid who wants to play in New York. He’s playing hard, scoring, fighting, and gutting it out. Wow did he wake up the team.
I think Richards was afraid they were going to rip the “A” off and give to Brassard. He finally woke up and started playing. After last night I think everyone realizes how much we need Staal back. The defense was sloppy and confused at times.
Yes, it was nice to see Boyle off the ice. He plays like a “Ground Sloth”
1 year, 4 months ago on Rangers 6, Panthers 1
Dorrest is a high energy player. We are not looking to improve the forth line with there 5min of ice time. Move Zuc to the third line and put him with Hagelin and Brassard.
You may say he is playing his best hockey? He does not fit with this team.
1 year, 4 months ago on Dorsett to Begin Skating This Week
If Dorrest comes back I say sit Boyle. He is a big slug out there. Also he is a -13.
The Rangers need Nash. Right now they two legit scorers. Gabby and recently Cally. What has been great for the Rangers is Defense and Goaltending. You have to admit we need alittle more on the goal scoring side. If Cally wasn't on a hot streak. The last four or five games could have been different.
2 years, 6 months ago on Rangers Concerned About Price for Nash | February
Yes make the trade and throw in Avery, Fed's, and Prust. Nash has 18 goals. We have two players with more then 18. Thats right, a big two. If we want to make cup run, we need to beef up the scoring and the PP.
2 years, 6 months ago on Trade Rumors: Nash Will Cost Rangers a Ton | February
Rangers out played them the whole game. Just could not finish. What concerns me is that the Rangers only have three players with more then 10 goals. They need more players chipping in. Even the Islanders have four.

2 years, 8 months ago on Tortorella May Face Fine | January
I have been a Ranger fan since the 60's. Being a fan the one thing you have to get use to in this organization is trading players that you love. Such as Giacomin, Gartner, Leetch and Messier to name a few. The one thing I loved about Avery being on the team is that he brought personality. Which is something the Rangers have not had since 94.

Wang is a Billionaire the players make millions the county will make millions off of concerts, shows, sporting events etc. They wil charge $20 to park and $8 for a bottle of water. Plus, if they do a ballpark? That will generate money. FYI the Long Island Ducks have sold out every game every year since they started.They really have balls to ask the taxpayers who make $60,000 a year trying to support their families, struggling to pay for the high cost of gas, food, taxes, kids, electric, heating, etc. They will be making 100's of millions of dollars and just getting fatter. Talk about greed! I have an idea, why doesn't Wang float a loan and have the players take a 5% pay cut. He can make his money back by increased ticket sales and part of the events.
They are claiming it will cost the tax payers $58 a year. Is that per household or per tax payer??? The families paying for this project can't afford to attend these events.
The county claims that after this project is completed it will have created all these jobs. OK fine what are these jobs? Concession stand, ushers, parking attendents, all paying $8 - $10 an hour. They can't afford to see Brittany!
