@GiveGartneraCup agreed. But why not have both? a recap post and a "thoughts" post :)

Since I became a hockey & NYR fan 5 years ago, this blog has been my main source of NYR news & info. You did a great job and I will miss those blue comment texts after every game.
Good luck out there, and don't forget we'll all stay here waiting for your return tomorrow, next week, next year, next decade, next century... who knows :)

1. Sarcasm can be classified under the "joke" category.
2. Jokes are never funny when you have to explain them.

@EMoney2413 I'm of the opinion that there is no such thing as 'momentum dragging over' into a next game. Players may feel like there is any, but I don't think that momentum has any influence on the game.
That said. They should def win tonight :)

@BRING BACK DUBI Philly sounds like fun though :) No caps. Think they are the most boring team in the NHL and don't like playing against them.

@nyyyankees87 @ForEachNYR Obviously I'd like to see our youth (Kreider & Miller) to stay as well.

@nyyyankees87 Zucc, G, McD and Staal.
I would also like them to keep Brassard & Talbot :)
@mando24179 Cally played 2nd line so many times. This has nothing to do with Cally-favoritism or anything.
Oh and you could also comment on his lines with constructive feedback instead of attacking him personally.
@Satchbog @KreiderisTheChosenOne Hey anyone remember Christensen? :) that was when we lacked a real center :)

Missed the game, but it's been a while since I've seen Kreider's name circling around. How's he playing ?
12 months ago on Rangers 5, Avalanche 1
Thing he has against him is his age. The other rookies are way younger than him and less experienced in the NHL... Kreider was playing playoffs two years ago ;)

@FREE MASHINTER @ForEachNYR yea, just kinda missing the Rangers of 2011-2012 tbh. As long as Frolov stays in Russia ^^ (although with the new nets maybe he'd be more dangerous)

did you know Bobby Ryan wasn't even among their top 100 forwards? And Kovy was still in it around spot 60 or so... I wouldn't value ESPN ratings.... even if they're positive...

1 year, 8 months ago on Torts Fired?!?!?!?!
I don't see why a hockey player can't have a personal sponsorship. Ok it's a gambling company but Unibet has a pretty good reputation. It's not like they gamble on hockey games right?
Btw the expression is "I couldn't care less". If you say "I could care less" it means you do care!
greetings from Belgium ;)

Hey Kevin, what did you mean with Zucc becoming Avery? Is he that good in harassing the other team or does Torts have issues with him? (I hope the first! didn't see the game last night so..)

@dsclaw88 beh, I'd hate to face the caps again... an unpredictable and dangerous team and in my eyes also a little boring... :)
1 year, 9 months ago on Was Gaborik a Locker Room Cancer?
I think Gaborik is too "silent" to be a locker room cancer. Besides, remember the All-star games last year when he was joking with scoring on Lundqvist. That looked like camaraderie, not bad atmosphere.
I think many players feared for their job on the team (like Boyle) and that had its influence on the locker room atmosphere.
@matte54 sorry for the poor grammar. Late & tired ;)
1 year, 9 months ago on Brooks: NHL Not Starting in Europe Next Season
@matte54 ditto, went to stockholm from Belgium (which is not so nearby) just to see them! Next they come to europe I will plan another citytrip to go see them wherever they play! And about the World Cup. It's possible in football (soccer), and no one complains about it. It's even one of the biggest sport events in the world next to the summer olympics..
Anyone else noticed Stepan keeps making the same goal every game? standing left before the goal, putting it in when he gets fed. :)

1 year, 11 months ago on Nash Goes from Hero to Almost Goat Back to Hero
@KevinDeLury yea not really counting on him. But 2 years ago when we were in the same kind of position as we are right now (not sticking up for eachother) Sauer was one of the first to respond and stand up for his teammates, turning the rangers into what they were last year. Even though he mostly got his ass kicked but he didn't care! Mess with a ranger, and you mess with all of them :)

"Not sure if the Rangers feel as though because they're considered a serious threat to win the Cup that teams will just bow down to them so they don't need to work as hard or what" huh wha? :)talking of injuries, when's Sauer coming back to jump anyone messing with the rangers?
Meanwhile ex-rangers John Mitchel and PA Parenteau both scored their 2nd goal for Colorado in 3 games last night...

@KevinDeLury @smoothyv Hey Kev, about the facebook images, there are options to set your facebook image per page through metatags on your page. You should be able to ask Bloguin to set a default facebook image for when there's no pics in the post itself, and when there is a pic in your post, to take that image :) (it's all just html tags and I'm sure they can easily fix that for you!) cheers!

While I love your tweet, it was kind of a weak comment from LGabriele imo. CBJ probably already feel bad because of their loss, so they try to bring some good news for once and then they get flamed by a NYR fan for no real reason (even a little insulting to Dubi too!). If I were a fan of another team I'd be proud to have Dubi as a new acquisition as well.
@KevinDeLury @AG_Blue it's just a font with a different capital N than we're used to.
