I dont think the roster needs to be turned over completely, what needs to happen is certain players lke Boyle Stralman, Hagelin and Pouilot need to be replacedwith toughness and scoring. I'm not sure who is available via trade or free agency but the team can chnage with the replacement of a a fewplayers. It's so obvious they need toughness, size and more scoring to be a consistent contender. I would not be against Sather throwing out the name of Nash in trade propoals to get back what the team needs. To me he is a disapointment, he isn't tough and his scoring is not consistent enough.

Easion is a CLOWN along with his BUTTBOY Carton! I don't bye a word of anything that comes out of his butt, er I mean mouth!
Francesa is a pompous ass! Who gives a rats ass about his opinion on anything? In fact most of the sports idiots on WFAN are useless, Carton is a 12 year old in a mans body, Boomer is a babysitter to Carton and by the way Boomer is a ass as well. And as far as Joe and Evan it may as well be Mutt and Jeff they provide no insight and are not infromative about anything other that " OH THE PAIN " Boningo catch phrase when talking about his 2 loser teams the Mets and Jets! The station for the most part is 24 hiours of white noise!

@gravey94 I agree this team has over achieved and been over rated for several yeaars now. There really aren't many players I would not consider trading including Callahan.Time to clean house get picks and young players. Even though he is currently leading the team in scoring it was a HUGE mistake not buying out Richards. AV when he gets " his " players will make this a exciting and fun team to watch.
11 months, 1 week ago on Tough Night For AV Behind the Bench
@Jercooks845 I've been watching the Rangers my whole life and I'm 62 and as of right now in my opnion he doesn't get in unless he wins another Vezina at least 1 more and about another 120-150 games. He can get in without winning the Cup but he has a ways to go.

@ThrSage Another typical response from the boy who knows everything there is to know about everythin. Youre a moron. Now yor a grammar expert as well. Those players are cheaper third line players so dont say they arent as good., this is a cap world we live in and they are all better choices as far as the cap goes. You thibk they can win a Cup with this team???? You need to get off the pipe in your mothers bunker idiot! Just a big bag of wind!Your a 13 year old idiot who plays table hockey . What I forgot about hockey you still need to learn jerkoff!.
1 year, 2 months ago on Rangers to Go With Youth Over Free Agents
@MikeBlue @ThrSage You try and respect other people's opinions but sometimes it's hard to do because of the way they come across. They alledgely have "sources" and inside information, of course it's all bullshit. It's their way to attempt to impart their so called hockey and Ranger knowledge on the world. Keeping Richards is a mistake! People think he will have a bounce back year so what! He isn't worth the cap hit period!!! What is a bounce back year 60-70 points maybe? NO free agents as good??? NONSENSE. Remember your talking about the third line centerhere so tell me what woul dbe wrong with Mike Riebeiro, Derek Roy, Saku Koivo, Stephen Weiss or even Tyler Bozak? And they would be cheaper. But the Rangers are stuck with this albatross for this year lets see what happens
@stRangers fan I agree I don't see Hank wanting to stay so may as well get a boatload of player/picks for him.If the Rangers choose to go with more youth then let's call it what it is....bascally a rebuilding year.I have no problem with that but then why keep Richards? I really don't see what the point of keeping Richards was. With Asham on waivers we lost our toughness unless Mcilrath makes the team but you cant reply on a rookie to do all the dirty work either. Very, very confusing!
Rumor....Rangers trying to aquire Cal Clutterbuck if they can get so manuerverabiliy. Sounds like trades are coming
1 year, 2 months ago on Richards Already Focusing on Next Season
Richards has had 2 90pt. and 2 70 pt seasons if that makes him an " elite " player then slap my ass and call me Sally! He is only paid as a elite player who has lost a step or 3 and should no longer be on this team, If he comes back and scores 70+ okay but if he is the 3rd line center how is going to score 70pts?
The draft is crap shoot so unless your pickiing in the top 5 or so you never know what your going to have in a few years. I'm so pissed about them keeping Richards I could care less if they draft a bag of pucks and a broken stick. Fucking idiots!
1 year, 2 months ago on Rangers Looking For Defensive Depth & Future No. 1 Goaltender in Draft
Yup keep the slow skating in cement Richards. Great move.......NOT! DUMBASS MOVE!
1 year, 2 months ago on Rangers Not Buying Out Richards
It does if you dump Richards and sign Dion for 3-4 years.
1 year, 2 months ago on More Sloppy Seconds for Phaneuf?
If you can trade Wayne Gretzky you can trade Callahan! Gorokhov is a d-man in Hartford who shows some offensive promise.
If there is a trade to be made with Toronto then the Rangers may as well go all in. put a package of Callahan. DelZotto, Ilya Gorokhov and Brandon Segal for Kessel and Dion. They would still need to but out Richards and you have a PP quarterback and a scorer to compliment Nash.
AV is a breath of fresh air,I'm so very glad Tortorella is gone. He was on his way o ruining this team and their young players.

@cb1 @Not So Nashty @Ranger Dave Thats up to Hank! I dont want him to walk but I dont want the Rangers to be tied to potentially 2 monster cotracts with Nash & him.And thats only if they buy out Richards then if they dont they will have 3 bloated contracts for guys in their mid to late 30"s. I want Hank on this team and to retire as a Ranger but if he wants to win here he needs to consider the consequences of him taking a max contract.
1 year, 2 months ago on Sather Talked to Lundqvist's Agent; Going to Renew Stepan, McD & Hagelin
@Ranger Dave @Not So Nashty Yes they do!
The Rangers cannot hastring themselves with a long term deal for a over 30 player regardless of who it is! We live in a cap world and eveyone needs to adjust to it both the team and the players. Players want to make the most they can and that is okay but if it's going to prevent the team from bringing in key components then th player is looked at like a someone who only wants the $$$$ and doesn't care about winning! Hank and the Rangers need to fighure out whats best for both parties and go from there.
@scrangersfan @Not So Nashty
I was replying to jmacwilli on Sanchez! I could care less about Sanchez or the Jets. Maybe you should read the previous posts before commenting the next time.
1 year, 3 months ago on Sather Blames Lack Of Offense And Puck Possession On Tortorella, Not Himself
You have got to be kidding! Tortorella never adjusted the tealent level of his players not ever! He insisted on his style and only his style of unimagmitive boring hockey. Block a shot and hope Hank saves the rest. He got what he deserved. He constantly threw the players under the bus and never held himself accountable until his last presser when they got eliminated by Boston. Then he made a curosory comment about getting the players to play better, well he should have put them in a position to succeed not fail.
As far as Sanchez not having any talent around him althought that is somewaht true, what talent does Sanchez have exactaly? He can't throw and can't run. Still makes rookies mistakes so is that because of the lack of team talent or lack of talent in Sanchez?
That line showed some real promise, I hope they get a chance to play together for awhile. I hope th enext coach doesn't change lines every other shift like the last one did.

@NYR44 Hey I was gonna say that! LOL!!!
1 year, 3 months ago on Richards Would Like to Return to Dallas
@EHBIGAPPLE @Not So Nashty Depends on who else the Rangers bring in, if your loking expeirence especially if they sign veterans and don't bring up anyone from the Whale then I would say Boucher or Vigneault. If they go wth a younger group with MIller McIlrath, Thomas, Fast etc then I would say Eakins.As long as the team shows improvement and doesn't go backwards or sideways I'm confident Hank will be a Ranger for a long time.
1 year, 3 months ago on Rangers May Not Pursue Ruff; Tippett Not Available
Dallas Eakins! Works well with young players, no NHL expierence but you have to start some where.
If Mess wants to get behind the bench I can see the Rangers hiring a coach with expierence and have Mess as a assistant if he agress to that. He can be groomed to take over one day becasue as we all know every coach has a " shelf life ". But I can'r see Gretzky, to me he seems too laid back which would be the exact opposite of the dictator that just got canned. Besides if the team gets off badly how do you fire Wayne Gretzky?
1 year, 3 months ago on Messier, Gretky Interested in Rangers Head Coaching Vacancy
Take it for what it's worth but the morning papers apparently got inside information that the players had it withTortorella. It was blantly obvious but many of the Torts lovers failed to see that. Well good riddance, time to move on.
1 year, 3 months ago on Who Are The Initial Candidates To Replace John Tortorella?
Balackhawks in 7 , the better goalie wins!
Possibly Marc Crawford won a CUP with the Avs in 1996
I should be so lucky!
1 year, 3 months ago on Torts Fired?!?!?!?!
Going to Hank's and Avery' bar after work. Maybe I'll be able to pick up on some info.
They cant broadcast a confdernce call live per Francessa. they will bring it once it's over
It's a conference call so you can't follow it, you will have to wait until it's over to get any additional information.
Yes, hank would have a difference for the Nucks'
Can't announce a buyout until a minimum of 4 days after the Cup finals.
Yup heard hte same thing! Figures typical!
I love Slats, He just made my day by axing this clown. I knew his act was wearing this with everyone!
Very well said, some people think whoever coaches the Rangers has to have a Cup winning back round or they don't qualify as Rangers caoch. Torts won the Cup 10 years ago in a differnet NHL, differrnt tme and place. that has nothing to do with now, this time with this team. Any thing he was nominated for was and is a indivudual honor and doesn't necessarily translate into wins and or the Cup..
1 year, 3 months ago on Breakup Day News, Notes & Quotes
Maybe I'm reading too much into their comments but Hank and MCDonagh don't sound to enthusiastic about signing long term. I hope I'm wrong.
@PsychJukebox @MutantCity The NY Daily News poll had 71% and the Post had 62% that want the coach out.
For those or for that person who knows eerything there is to know about hockey unlike 99.9% of us who know shit according to the great wise one I will name some potential coaching candidates Cary Eaves WHL Stamnpede, Luke Richardson Bighamton Sens, Brad Larson Springfield, Rob Zeller Syracuse, Dallas Eakins Toronto Marlies. The current coach isn't going anywhere but these guys could be candidates in the future.
1 year, 3 months ago on Rangers 1, Bruins 3
@scrangersfan It's' 50 years for me as well, I would love to see JD take over. I think the Rangers with the young talent comig up would be better off without Tortorella around.
Bottom line is Tortorella needs to go. They will never win the Cup with this clown behind the bench. He constantly changes the lines and that makes for no chemistry and consistency. He reduces the bench to 10-12 players every game so by the end of the year they are pretty much burned out. The PP has gotten worse every year he has been here. The players come and go and nothing seems to improve. The only thing that hasn't changed in 4 years is the coach and his staff. It's time for a change!
