Anyone going to the first preseason game tomorrow? I think I'm going to go. Miss hockey too much. Pretty sure this is Group A roster for tomorrow's game via Rangers Report...

"The highlight, or at least the most exciting thing to watch, during today three on-ice sessions was the somewhat heated back-and-forth between rookie defenseman Conor Allen and center Derick Brassard during special team drills as the Rangers’ second group practiced.
Allen was very physical in trying to clear Brassard from the net and Brassard was not too shy about whacking Allen back as he skated back to the blue line. At one point near the right post, Brassard chopped Allen down. Allen, meanwhile, also lay some heavy checks on Brassard’s PP linemates, Rick Nash and Anthony Duclair, both who looked as if they were a little sore from the physical play.
“It’s all part of the competition,” coach Alain Vigneault said. “Even if it’s in practice, I don’t expect Conor to let that veteran player get on him. There’s nothing wrong with boys being boys out there.”"

@EHBIGAPPLE NHL: Conservative hosers who love to throw around the Original Six concept. Meanwhile, new rules are instated every year.

@stRangers fan I'm fine with them finishing .500. They finished what, 8th last year and made it to the Stanley Cup?
I wished Hank and Letterman talked cars and NYC.

@Josh-CK If Hayes can keep up with NHL pace, Hags Miller Hayes will be awesome to watch.

Makes sense Ryan McDonagh Derek Stepan invited him to informal practice because they were all just together at the Octagon camp in Minnesota.

@scrangersfan @JoeyKocur I'd love to know how it went down...did Kovalev call/text a current Ranger player or did he call a member of the training staff?

@Gianni74 Didn't realize he had only 13 assists last season.
Fucking awesome. Bet he's the strongest guy on the ice 90% of time - just wait until he can harness his strength.

@bmurphy6832 @Josh-CK Report-NHL expansion to Las Vegas is a done deal http://www.si.com/nhl/2014/08/26/report-nhl-expansion-las-vegas-done-deal

@bmurphy6832 @Josh-CK I was at a Las Vegas Wrangers game two or three years ago and it wasn't sold out by far. That place might seat 5,000. Maybe. Vegas is the wrong move.
If the NYC metro area can host three teams (NJ, NYR, NYI) Toronto definitely can host one more.
Quebec government is fucked up but the people are passionate. The new arena would seat as many fans as MSG.
Seattle: "All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano and the Seattle Mariners finalized their $240 million, 10-year contract that was agreed upon late last week. The deal, which is tied for the fourth largest contract in major league history..." -ESPN
@JoeyKocur I wish NHL network and pundits recognized the Rangers' post season effort. SCF, best team in the East pretty much. I hope more bloggers, NHL writers, etc. give the Rangers props moving into 2014-'15.
Enough of the the word "overachieved" - mgmt and players are working hard.
@pkh33 Can't, too bright out there.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @BringBackBeukeboom I enjoy these little news tidbits. This is what the offseason is all about. Miscellany news leading up to camp, pre-season, then season, etc...I'm just grateful the blog is updated over the summer. Thanks Kevin!

I was just cleaning up my desktop and found this gem! Had to share it (again).
Nice photo. See Stepan? Always a smile on his face. Always.
@Say my Name Well said, 100% agree. Nash is big, B. Boyle was big - neither really played to their size. It's all about heart and stones.

Thanks for the heads up
@Matteau Matteau He had a chance at "redemption" with the Preds and it went nowhere.
Brian Boyle wore number 22 right? Sweet.
@leftwingbarbara Kingsbridge Ice Facility in the Bronx is still a few years away. The money is there though. It's going to be about nine rinks - supposedly the largest ice/rink facility in the world. Minor murmurs about locating or relocating a minor league team is a real thing, though nothing concrete

@pkh33 Which kinda makes you think he might not have that much of a personality. So he wears $2,500 suits and is Mr. GQ. His apartment is dope but pretty sterile. His Instagram is all pictures of himself, not what he's up to. Throwing glitter and lightning on your helmet doesn't really show who you are. However, his ESPN commercials are funny, so he has that going...
Whatever though, to each their own. Both are cool.

Hardest working Ranger in show business.
Of the handful of face offs MZA has take he's always pulled off some crafty, left field shit. He should take a few more draws next season.

@IcyCup I went through most of his tweets and this guy has personality. I like it. So many NHLers are great character guys, wholesome, etc. but they're so dry it's painful. This guy isn't afraid to show who he is, while so many NHLers are simply homers.
@AnnoyingJoe WOWY wee-wah!
@KevinTheNYRBlog @allagash Hockey players know ice surfaces differ from rink to rink (always bored with post game questions from the media; we never hear about, "so how was the ice tonight?"). A player could catch a tiny rut and knock him off his stride or the puck could simply hop over a stick-blade or deviate from the projected destination for many reasons, ultimately altering any kind of stat. I'm not sure how these stats accommodate the many variables and the spontaneity and freestyle that is ice hockey.

Evander Kane drama...how real is him wanting out, and if he does...how real is it he becomes a Ranger?
