This should be a good one. I'm working so I'll miss you hippies and freaks tonight. Maybe I'll catch the replay when I get home tonight.

Speaking on Nash, I told the entire fan base here last season as an experiencet of multiple concussions/PCS exactly what Nash was going through both physically and psychologically and except for a small handful no one got it but now we got it from the horses mouth plus a fast start to the season and people are getting it now. Lots of hate and name calling for my comments last year ( Nash apologist was the kinder insults I caught lol) but the debates are what makes this whole format fun but, especially when I'm right so in the future when you respond to my posts just say " Yes Worlds, thank you worlds, you are a GOD Worlds , you are a legend in your own mind Worlds". Uh wait a second...

Dan G as a solid but not spectacular DMan who generally gets the job done gets 5.5. Staal is a better player asking for 6M. What is the problem? His stats will improve this year when he's not playing eith a 3rd pairing. Also he's getting over PCS and a traumatic eye injury. We're not that deep at defense with Boyle getting old and Brady S. Our only promising prospect in the system. Unless they get great return they'd be idiots to trade Staal.

@Bones7 I would add in last 2 games Duke played he drew 3 penalties had quality scoring chances and set up numerous others. Not invisible at all from where I was sitting. +/- rating was 2nd on team to St.Louis and though a weak stat given the sample size it suggests his defensive play isn't bad for a rookie. Yes his body is growing into a man's but he's smart and has moxy enough to adapt and thrive in this league given his skills and hockey instincts. He'll keep getting better this year.

@Bueller @KevinTheNYRBlog Because I've had PCS twice from being a competitive kick boxer and am in the know I commented a lot last year on Nash and the concussion mostly to deaf ears but I was the 1st I know of here to explain to people here why he was under performing and the physical and psychological impact a traumatic brain injury has on an athlete. We saw the same with Boyle here and Crosby needed a full year to be Crosby again. Anyway my big question about Nash was not if he'll be better this year because I knew he was out of the shadow of PCS (the period when you're cleared to play but the timing and judgment have not fully returned as well as the period of PTSD when an athlete will over-protect their head and not perform as fear is the mind killer and when you are thinking you are not playing this lightning fast game ) but rather would he find his heart, or extra level where his impact would match his skill level and size as I often say this is a guy who could be a 50 goal scorer if he just got his head together. Absolutely correct Bueller in stating he will not always be this effective and this will be the final measure (well other than performance in playoffs) as to whether or not he has really found his heart, though his inspired and decisive play would say yes, but I want to see how he handles and works through a slump first before being absolutely sure. So far like what I see :)

I predicted a Rangers comeback after 2 periods, and then again when they went down 3-1. After a few Worlds predictions have gone south I'm happy to say I'm back in mid-season form lol - the Rangers? Well that's another story. After the San Jose win there was a feeling amongst other fans like our team was starting to gel but honestly I could not take that win as a measure of anything because the Sharks were dog tired and it showed on the ice after the 1st period and all we had to do was show up and take care of business, but the thing I could take away from that game was how we stepped up physically and how we have to keep doing that for the speed game to be effective. This has been my creed for a long time on this blog and last night was a good example of the difference physical play can make. Firstly to see that against a team with fresh legs we could not control the play (until we started hitting) - good reality check for those who thought we were hot shit for beating the powerful Sharks. Also early in the 1st I posted on the game blog how Hank didn't seem sharp to me and that is something to look for. Well he did have a better 2nd and 3rd but still I thought but he was not particularly sharp - not bad and he did make a few nice saves but I thought since Hank has stolen so many for us it was time for the skaters to return the favor, which they did. The 4th line? A couple things especially since I cited this before the game as well would be firstly Moore needs to center that line. Not Muelle but also Malone should be fine but Glass is not a good player in regards to possession and forecheck which was the hallmark of our 4th last season so adjustments will be needed. Glass hits and watches over team mates and is doing his job but adjustments will be needed to get that line up to last years level. Hunwick looked good, each game he's been better. When was the last time Klein scored a game winning goal? When Krieds is in beast mode he's great but still need more cnsistancy. Zucc is ripe to break out. He's been playing very well as of late. It's coming...
... and then there's Nash. Chubaca strikes again!!!!!

Oh man, Krieds was just trying to get position - that's no penalty. It's not his fault that a Devil was in his way :)
Hunwick's looking good tonight
way to stickhandle
Henry actually has looked sharper this period
@Gorangers0525 @betweentheworlds You did so it's all good
OK, deflection - my bad
I posted early in the 1st that Hank doesn't look sharp. Good fast shot to the corner, tough chance yes but he's The KING
Its PP goal time
@Say my Name Who?
Good shift from the 4th line - that's been missing
Staal shot it too high
we've got to play sharper in our zone - and move bodies. Where's The Wrath
@Say my Name They've always been that way
2 shots attepted on that shift. Glass's corsi just went up
Hey loks like we're frechecking this period
@McPhee37 @betweentheworlds Still I've seen Hank deflect those away
@Say my Name @betweentheworlds or A HIT. He's fast too, he wins the foot races only to give up the puck
@Hotfreak But Anson's looking sharp
IDK, a shapr Henry deflects that backboard shot away that Jags buried
We look too slow - Malone, time to break out the lines
