@dsclaw88 Trade value is low. He's a UFA I think. If he was an RFA there may be a conversation but before giving up on the hobbit consider this. 1. All players hit walls and go through slumps. It happens. 2. Maybe Zucc is hurt? Players will never disclose performance hampering injuries but rather play through them as best they can. 3. Zucc has to this day shown that he will sign for less to help his team. In the cap era you've got to weigh value and you have to be smart. If Zucc signs at.5-1M under his market value and he possesses game breaking skills it's a no-brainer. The front office knows this and I'm willing to bet they are working on a deal for Zucc right now and have no intentions on trading him.

@J_CKfor30 Switch the centers on the top 2 lines and I'm with you.

Perfect point about ebbs and flow Niell. We're a good team going through a slide. I will say this though, I liked the physical play the last 2 games even if they were losses. I like Girardi with some snarl. His entire game improves when he plays like that, probably because he's not thinking and is just playing.. Staal continues to look good. the chemaistry, or lack there of is hurting both Nash and Zucc. Any chance of getting our top scorer paired with our top center AV?. Switch the left wingers on the top 2 lines. I guarantee both lines will be better. well obviously there are no guarantees but just as a point of comparison the Brass line was really good with Poops on the left - and if Poulliot is poops then Krieds is more like explosive diarrhea. Anyway I thought we played a good albeit too cautious a game and it was good enough to win. The Hank flub, eh. It happens to the best but our offecnse has to produce. One mistake should not cost us the game.

@Gorangers0525 hmm, interesting - top line has proven success and it gets Zucc back on left wing. I'd still like to see Nash - Step StL and Kreic-Brass-Zucc
Well that sucked. At this point of the season what happens next might be a good indication of how good our coach, and leadership structure really is
Plenty of time!
@J_CKfor30 Did he die? No call!
Well that just sucks
@Say my Name Troll
It's only a slash if it knocks your hemet off - sorry Brass. no call
@Gorangers0525 they're hitting
Staal likes the contract
This is right about when Price lets in a softy
@Craptin McDonqvist Thank goodness yu decided to "drop" in
Holy fucking shit!!!
@Gorangers0525 He plays nasty sometimes, always a better player when he sharpens his teeth
@Gorangers0525 @Say my Name Subban=bitch
@Say my Name That's got to be gum boy
What would a Rangers game be without Livfyre crashing my computer at least once. It's all Tanner Glass's fault
That was some gutsy goaltending there - show that 5 hole then close it up. I love a guy with guile

Do they havve to start subtractiing goals from the 1st line before they change left wings on top 2 lines?
/since Zucc and Nash have no chemistry maybe a switch of left wings on the top lines???
@Say my Name @Hotfreak @leftwingbarbara My friend in Austaralia said her friday is going like shit so I'm not going to get up tomorrow
@Say my Name Are you watching the Boston game?
McD just passed it in the general direction of a Ranger
@leftwingbarbara Pierre - I don't care!
@KevinMccarthy has something to do with the earth's orbit, moon's relatie distance from the sun and the sunspot cycles
Don't they remember that you're suppose to get the puck in deep
@J_CKfor30 Than ks for cheering me up sunshine
I heard iron! twice!!
We may not have scored but Girardi completed an outlet pass. LGR!
been in a bit of a scoring drought lately? Maybe time to switch Krieds and Nash and see how that works?
How have we looked tonight? I just started watching a couple minutes ago
@KevinMccarthy crybabies! That was not a dirty hit or anything but a 2 minute penalty. The Price incident was a trip. Fucking rididculous

These line's are f*d up. I think AV's gum is spiked. Glass's grit will certainly be necessary against the big bad Canadians. Geez!! Hayes 4th line? Eh. top lines: switch Nash and Kreids. Both lines will improve. guaranteed. Nash has shown much better chemistry with St. Louis than with Zucc early this season and Step is our best center and has shown good chemistry with nash. Krieds speed and power could open things up more for Zucc who's been struggling of late. Now that the scoring has gotten a bit stale it would be a good time to experiment with new combinations. No?
Let Miller play for fuck's sake - and do we really need Glass against Montreal??? Hmm waivers? Oh, right, no one else would pay his salary.
OK - I'm chalking this loss up to bad fortune. Yes, that's right. We got our shirts handed to us the 1st period but responded well and played a reasonable inspired final 40 minutes and outshot, outchanced and outplayed one of the best teams in the league during that time span. The results were the same as the garden games yes, but we did play better as a whole. We ran into hot goaltending and many rebounds faied to find Ranger sticks though we were not doing a terrible job getting bodies to the net, but obviously it wasn't enough. So for thse who think we don't stand a chance in the playoffs against Isles. Bruins etc. I just don't see it that way and feel that adding a bit of size and grit to balance our game is all we would need to remedy that, and I'm talking about secondary players - Tanner glass types who actually know how to play hockey. As for our top 6 I have not liked those lines since the incursion but since we've been largely successful why fix what isn't broke? Lately the offense has been stale though and a fix would not be a bad thing. I've always liked to see Nash and Krieds get switched on the left wing. Let your top scorer play with your top center. I understand AV trying to create balanced lines but Kreids-Brass-Zucc as a second line is a legitimate threat. For whatever reason Zucc and Nash just isn't clicking and getting a faster more physical player on that left side might open things a bit for the creative Zucc and Brass while having your best center play with your best scorers

Take care y'all. See you next time
Well, too many turnovers and we didn't even show up in the 1st but we got 41 shots, and lots of good looks. It was a winable game but shit happens. Really - we didn't play that bad against one of the top teams and outchanced them the last 40 minutes.
@rangermom @Gorangers0525 and that meaningless overtime goal last game but yeah
YES!! Now we just need 3 more in 8 seconds
At least we didn't lose 3-0 again. Phew!
@JoeyKocur Wookies don't like to lose
@JustinRP37 Really. We've matched them and in fact have had the better of the play last 2 periods but we are snake bitten right now against this team
