@Herman_NYRBlog  That's one thing no one can criticize Richards about. If you remember, he was the guy who took Del Zotto under his wing his first season in New York and got the defenseman to have his best year as a Ranger.

@BringBackBeukeboom  Not that Say my Name needs someone to defend him but he's actually given Nash some lukewarm praise recently. Which is saying a lot. lol

@Say my Name Completely agree that the short term contract is a huge reason why the trade was such a win for the Rangers. In the past they've been hamstrung by contracts to older star players. Not this time.

@TomDundie  Tom, it's all just fun in here. No need to take anything personally. Everyone is going to get ripped on at some point. Just have to roll with it. Hopefully you'll reconsider.

@AG_Blue @KevinTheNYRBlog  I can do that. Since the Rangers aren't playing tonight, I'll post an open thread around 6pm. Good idea.

@dcmullets1  It'll be another Prust situation. Rangers will want to re-sign him, but someone is going to overpay and it would be irresponsible for Sather to match.

@dsclaw88  Guy has averaged around 25-30 points a season. Not bad for a defensive defenseman.

@AG_Blue  I feel Girardi has to slide over there. Voracek already committed to going to the net, so I doubt he would have been able to make a high quality pass in that position.

@allagash  My point was that if they don't play with the same intensity of the first game they're going to be in trouble in this series which is hard to dispute. And c'mon, I'm always over dramatic. lol

@JMK8363  The sad thing is that Bickel had a very good regular season that year. Then he had that awful turnover against Ottawa, Torts lost confidence in him and he was never the same player again.

@Say my Name  I hear you as we only need to look at the way the Rangers played in front of Talbot all season, but Emery isn't some young kid they might feel they have to protect. He started 28 games this year and was three games under .500. for a team that finished the season 12 games over the Mendoza line.

@McDonagh for President  I used to do a fantasy league on the blog, but it got out of control as I literally was running 12 different leagues with 12 teams in each and then I did a playoffs between the 12 league winners. It was nuts and burdensome.

@Say my Name @KevinTheNYRBlog @gravey94  Yes, because he should have made that save on Brett Hull even though he was in the crease. ;)


In all seriousness, it would have been a black cloud over it. Especially if he wouldn't have won it with that Wings team. Would have had the "couldn't win the big one" label.

@Say my Name @gravey94 @KevinTheNYRBlog  It's not just championships alone, it's the full body of work combined with championships. Obviously I don't think Trent Dilfer is better than Dan Marino, but look at the scrutiny guys like LeBron and Peyton Manning went through before they won.


As I initially said, it's not fair, but in my opinion, it's a big hole in someone's resume when they don't have a championship.


I also think baseball is different as there's way too may other variables involved with one player winning.


I have high standards, what can I say.

@Say my Name @KevinTheNYRBlog What I'm saying is that those great players not having a championship under their belt is a chink in their armor.


Ewing was never able to get his team over the hump and he's remembered for that.


Baseball is a different animal because it's so much more stat driven, but I do think a goaltender on a hockey team has much more effect on a team winning a championship than one player on a baseball team.


I'm sorry, if Hank doesn't win a Stanley Cup his legacy will be "Yeah, one of the greats, but...."


Just look at Dan Marino.

@Lordstanleybroadway  The Rangers problems in the playoffs over the years has been scoring and Miller bring more offense than Fast or Carcillo.
