Why don't we just try and negotiate with Cally in the offseason? It would be the same thing as if we had traded for a loaner at the deadline for a playoff push. I know we might be leaving value on the table if he ends up leaving, but I bet he'd realize no one is giving him 7yrs @ 6M.

@DominicSanchez I'm a rangers fan, I've been drawing on my "glass half full" reserves for so long, they are almost empty
Anyone catch Kreider going to fight marchand after that hit on zucc? Literally was on the bench and got back on the ice to give him a shove.
Kreider is not the physical presence the rangers deserve, but the physical presence the rangers need. (insert James Gordon voice)
@NYR44 @danblackburn a few amazing saves, very solid rebound control, and he made a serious difference with handling the puck. In my book, that's one hell of a game.

I can't complain about their play tonight, rask was unbelievable
@NYR44 We need mash to smash those who bash nash... and get cash
Sorry, couldn't help myself
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Mashinter Assigned to Hartford
I might be reading too much into it, but does it feel like everything Hank is doing is indicating that he's tired of this team? I mean, between his reaction to that goal (rightfully frustrated, but still) to him always pointing out that our offense sucks in postgame interviews, I feel like he's completely disenchanted with this organization. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but if I were a betting man, I wouldn't put money on him staying.

Any move we could make for a true enforcer? I'm talking about a fourth liner who will end any guy who takes a cheap shot at nash once he comes back. I never thought it'd be necessary for a big man like Nash, but concussions have a cumulative effect (ask Eric Lindros about it), and I want every player in the league to know that if you go at his head, you're going to get a worse punishment than anything Shanaban is going to throw around. Kreider clearly will stand up for teammates and that will encourage others to do the same, but I would sacrifice a roster spot for a man who's job it is to Ivan Drago v Clubber Lang anyone who goes after our superstar.

@CinciMike As I said last night, good for kreider for standing up for a teammate, but I hope upshall doesn't retaliate when they play each other in florida (nov 27)
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Kreider Stands Up for Stepan With Crosscheck; Won't be Suspended
I didn't see the kreider crosscheck (if anyone can provide a video, please let me know), so it might not be fair for me to comment, but haven't we been talking and talking about how we need players to stand up for one another on this team? Yes, it might not be the right time to be doing it, and crosschecking isn't the way to be handling business, but at least he's sending a message to the guys on the other bench.

@sureshore True, but at the same time, I'd pay Emrick to announce my life for a day. Things would be a lot more exciting.
4 months ago on Rangers Romp Penguins 5-1
@genetics73 @AveryYesBettmanNo I don't think there's anything wrong with saying that Boyle doesn't use his size enough. A big man like that should be a major concern for goalies when he's crashing to the net and for defenders when they're chasing pucks down in their own zone. Unfortunately, he hasn't developed that part of his game. That being said, he does most other things well (besides skate fast) and is definitely a key part of the team's success.
@shoot_the_goalie @Trade DelZotto+Girardi4E.Kane What about Nash and a third round pick? This might be a complete moonshot, but it would open up cap room even after you give him a pay raise.

@johnnyb3910 @Trade DelZotto+Girardi4E.Kane @Jercooks845 those first couple games last year gave me so much hope, too. I mean he wasn't lighting it up, but he was such a presence on the ice. Whenever he decided he was taking it to the net, he got there. It just wasn't the same after the Lucic hit. Just less battling in the corners, didn't really cut to the center of the ice as much, he just looked like a guy with good hands and not much else. With his frame and hands, he needs to be driving to the net whenever he's one on one, but I'm not sure if he's capable of that anymore.
What do you think Cally's salary is if he has a solid, not stellar season from a points perspective. For the sake of argument saying they don't make the finals, as key players always get more money after a cup win or finals appearance. So if he has a 60-70 point season, and does the stuff he always does (blocks shots, leads the club, etc), what kind of price tag is on him?
7 months, 1 week ago on Callahan Says Shoulder Recovery Could Dip Into Season; No Extension Talk
That was a really pleasant interview, and I agree that Torts is generally a good guy, but I feel like they went easy on him with the questions. They should have taken him to task on the powerplay, talked more about how he sees his style of hockey in a faster NHL, and discussed the Hagelin comments in the playoffs. I dont just want Torts flipping out in the interview, I just would love to hear him answer some tough questions.
