Never got on Nash last season once.  His problems were obvious to me  He was recovering from multiple concussions which snowballed into lack of confidence.  I did question his heart however but that's only because I had never seen it but the way he came out swinging this year showed me a lot about this man's character.  He's already making top dollar.  He could have coasted and collected his pay check.  He did not have to train so hard, work to get his head together to acheive personal as well as team success but he did.  That speaks volumes.   One could argue that he is a better player now than he has ever been.  Now the question is how will he do once the checking gets tighter, when the rink shrinks and he becomes a target.  If he continues to play physical (and btw he was never a "perimeter player" except while recovering frm PCS) he should be fine as the league may come to fear him.  also the big question is will he come through in the playoffs.  That will be the truest measure of how good he really is.

@Hotfreak @betweentheworlds Exactly if it even takes that long for John to "endear" himself to the good people of Calgary - but in the meantime he can teach those talented kids how to play hockey

@scrangersfan @Hotfreak Calgary's been a problem but with a day of rest they'll have their legs back that didn't arrive with the luggage in Edmonton and will probably win.

@TomDundie I've been hoping for a Step-Nash St. Louis line for a while with Zucc and Krieds playing with Brass for a 2nd line.  IDK but I think Step, Brass. Hayes and Moore makes for a good centerman corps. just not much depth beyond that

Well we climbed back to .500 (including OT losses), Hank got a shutout and no one new went down with The Mumps so it was a good day.  In lieu of having no legs and playing a sub par team that was looking to pounce on mistakes (and shoot high glove side on Hank)  they did a good job sticking to a defensive strtaegy that prevented any odd man rushes against so it was a good game in respect to the coaches.  Tues. should be more exciting with the boys rested up.

@J_CKfor30 @betweentheworlds Yeah, I agree Miller was pretty ineffective at center.  It's all Glass's fault.

@KevinMccarthy @betweentheworlds @DP_Snotty Could have happened either way.  Both players should be suspended for the rest of the season

The whole Glass situation is really starting to look like the Pyatt debacle last season.  At first every Rangers fan wanted Pylon gne yet AV continued to play him.  Then finally he got a concussion (Glass misses time with Mumps), then finally well into the season AV takes him out of the line up... so if the synchronicity continues it won't be long till Glass is placed on waivers.  Only difference between the 2 is that Glass can play with an edge.  So anyway we actually have a game tonight.  I'm far away from MSG and will miss it but should be a good one.  Enjoy.  Hope Krieds, Milleer and everyone else in the team gets a goal tonight.  LGR!

@Gorangers0525 OK sounds good.  Then perhaps you can explain to me why Glass has toned down the hitting since pre-season.  I know he leads the team in hits but he started out checking guys into the seats. Not hitting so hard any more.  Or why Carcill toned his game down after his first few games last year, or why on the dump ins instead of hitting the defensemen to forcing errors that way the forwards are trying to cut off the boards.  It just doesn't add up for me.

@J_CKfor30 @stevmore You know I have no way of knowing this but it seems AV discourages them to play real physical which Krieds needs to do to be effective, then he demotes him for not being effective.  WTF? Coach has got to let these guys play their game so long as they do so within his system.  Seems fair to me but IDK if he's letting certain guys play to their strengths

@Vkinc74 Hopefully they won't trade the only guy who hits on this team (besides Glass) - speaking of the Glassman does Krieds on the 4th mean Glass is in the pressbox?

@J_CKfor30 @betweentheworlds @rangermom Yeah, I hear ya  and it should be manditory they make players sit out with flu symptoms but it ain't happening..  When my kid had so much as a cold we wouldn't let him go to school because I believe it's irresponsible to knowingly spread virusesto to other kids  but that's not how people think and because it is Sid... well, you know.

@J_CKfor30 @betweentheworlds @IhateGaborik @stevmore I actually like Girardi's play, (though not on the PP). He's saved quite a few goals this year and his long reach and willingness to sacrifice his body make him an asset even with limited mobility.  I can't say I think he's worth the money though but that seems to be what 2nd tier Dmen are making these days
