Duclair was a 3rd round pick I believe. Up until the point he was traded he had no expectations. Even if he never did well nobody would have noticed. But now he has a ton of pressure to be a stud in Arizona or he will be a bust. He says he is ready for it but the kid might not develop the the same if was still in NY.

@JoeyKocur @TheKing How do i know? i dont i watch the game of hockey. Zucc doesnt have the skills marty st louis had. Marty in his prime was amazing with the puck, great scorer and passer.
@Bleed_the_freak @Zelrio @TheKing @JoeyKocur Im not blind, you sarcastic fuck
@JoeyKocur he will never be a version of St Louis, thats ridiculous and an insult to marty st louis
@NYR44 No its glass for wood
@Gorangers0525 im not knocking Yandle but its harder to fit a new defenseman in than a forward. Hopefully Yandle can elevate his game on a better team.
@Zelrio If there is no chemistry, this will be a fuckin disaster.
@BroadwayBlueZ The duke will be a 30 goal scorer. He showed flashes of greatness. Yandle is nothing special. Who knows if hank will even get his top form back this year?
@SmellyKisio @TheKing How is Duclair redundant? He is everything JT MIller is not. He will be a better player than zucc without a doubt. We gave up a future elite player for a gamble at the cup?? who knows if lundqvuist will even be top form when its playoff time.
@I Am Sean's Ruptured Spleen @TheKing
You guys are HIGH... acting like this is 94'.... Duclair will be an elite player I guarantee it. 30+ goals a year.
We lost duclair!!! this fucking organization is a joke
@j_ckfor30 I agree with you. Stall has never lived up to his hype and now wants way too much money. I wouldn't waste your time arguing with these guys. @rangersforte said Taylor hall is another overrated kid. comments like that are just silly. A 23 year old that is just about a ppg player who plays very intense on one of the worse franchises in the nhl and you say he is overrated? Huh yea that's silly. Next please.

@GiveGartneraCup I agree with this as well. Anyone can recap a game, but what makes something interesting to read is when the writer puts their own personality, perspective, and opinions into it.

@Gorangers0525 @scrangersfan @ATCRyan @J_CKfor30 @Picaz77 I agree exactly, that was a devastating hit. It was very clean, you can see how malkin correctly pivoted to place him in the the right position. In the NHL you have know better than to reach back for the puck.

@IhateGaborik @Forg344 I hate this kind of thinking, it makes me laugh. They are all grown men out there. Glass is not going to protect anyone. The game has evolved.

@JMK8363 I like these lines minus glass, but duclair is out so i guess stepniak is in duclair spots.
im going to the game tonight. really upset duclair isnt playing.
@McPhee37 Ive read a lot of your posts. The style of hockey you wish to see this team play is dead. The day of goons playing hockey are over. The game is based on speed and skill which it should be. A lot of us have played ice hockey at a competitive level and no skill player ever wants to be trolled on the ice by some goon. Its just bad hockey its not entertaining. Its an old school thing that nearly killed the sport. Ice hockey is finally coming back and regaining popularity. Every sport has evolved, for god sakes let hockey evolve. In every post you talk about "tough guys" and "enforcers". Nobody gives a shit, those kind of guys arent going to stop Crosby tomorrow night. Sending Glass out there to try and "rough" Crosby is just silly.
This is going to come out racist but it's the damn truth. The nba and nfl are primarily black athletes. Like the saying goes you can take the nigga out of the hood but you can't take the hood out of the nigga.

@MikeBlue The only thing I agree with this is that Lundqvists hampered this team with his contract. Imagine if he took 2mil less a year or hell even 1mil less. That would be such a difference right now.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @TheKing Nobody would be stupid enough to literally say it. It would be disrespectful to the organization and fans. NYC is great but when you have to be around it 24/7 its a nightmare. A lot of people that commute to the city and work there everyday cant stand it. Not everyone wants to live in an apartment in the city especially these hockey players who a lot them seem like down to earth family men. Raising a family in the city is not the greatest choice for your kids. If I ever made it pro NYC would not be on my list to live and play in unless I got a FAT paycheck.

kevin you keep saying these Ranger players are greedy and Sather has to play hardball. What if they are not greedy? What if they just cant stand NYC? Cant stand the atmosphere, the traffic, the media and fans. A lot of these guys grew up in small towns in the outdoors. Sometimes I feel like the hockey players are like well im gonna demand a lot of money and if they dont take it fuck it im out of new york. Playing in nyc is not what it used to be, where an athlete could make more money playing for a NYC team. its not the 60s-90s anymore, with the internet and all the social networking a player can be just as famous and rich in the middle of nowhere and not have to deal with the NYC media. I really feel like Callahan was one of those guys. No tax bullshit, he signed a discount in Tampa Bay compared to us. In the end he just didnt want to be a RANGER. Its not all about the money. Look at Gaborik, signed a discount with the Kings. When was the last time we got a real discount like that. I just really believe players prefer to not play in NYC.
this is the best pick of the draft.... kid seems like he has an edge when he plays

@94now I agree with this. Quick has been the better goalie hands down. Lundqvist has let is some soft goals this series. Quick has let in 0 softies. Its not all him to blame, but he has been a let down the most this series.

Why isn't lundqvist being booed?? The first goal was weak. Malkin spun falling down and had nothin on the shot. The deflection off stalls leg should have been stopped. It was such a soft shot. Fluery has been outplaying him every game. I hate his contract he got, he is not worth the money. Nash shouldn't be booed, when McD and lundqvist have been sucking. McD has been embarrassed!!

Lindqvist will be the 1st to lift the cup. It's his time to carry this team just like Richter, Roy, Broduer, Hasek, Quick, Niemi all did for their teams... Now its his time to do it. In the king we trust.

@mando24179 I completey agree, he is slow as fuck, how is he in the nhl with his skating ability? when he 1st debuted i thought 1. he doesnt look like a hockey player 2. he doesnt skate well 3. he doesnt shoot well. Then i said maybe he just is very hockey smart and is always in the right place at the right time. i think physically and skill wise he cant compete in this league. I think he is a smart hockey player but he just doesnt have the skill and skating.
11 months, 3 weeks ago on Possible Defensive Pairing Changes; Talbot to Start vs. Wild
@Nyrangers I couldnt agree more, he is expendable. I always thought he was an awkward skater, he looks funny out there. I feel like mentally he is a smart play making hockey player but he just doesnt have the speed and strength.
1 year ago on Rangers vs. Bruins (Game 62)
@NYrangers79 @dcmullets1 really? same kind of player? i didnt know callahan scored 41 goals in a season. kesler has more 82 GAME SEASONS than callahan. you sound stupid when you make these comments. kesler is a stud.
@NYrangers79 you have such a hard on for callahan, nobody wants to give up anything for him, he is going nowhere except buffalo in the summer. thats why he hasnt been traded and who wants an asshole demanding a ridiculous contract
@NYrangers79 bro you need to relax a little, stop with the PK shit. Blair Betts was a GREAT penatly killer, they are a dime a dozen. LOL he blocked shots big fuckin deal. He does not dominate offensively, Cally doesnt command anything more than 4-5mil. Its a joke, and the only reason he hasnt been traded yet is cause the whole leage knows he isnt worth shit. So the only thing sather can do is hope he signs for what he is somewhat actually worth.

@shoot_the_goalie @NYrangers79 @TruBluEsp @TheNYRBlog I completely agree, stepan is slow, he is not a strong skater. how do these guys make it to the nhl.
@NYrangers79 @jslnyr1102 Cally is a good player but nowhere near worth 6mil. 6 million was a GIFT!!
This team is so fucked up. Talbot almost shuts out one of the most talented teams the blackhawks but who do we force to start HANK. I love henrik but when Talbot has a game like he did you have to go with him again.... IF the Rangers sign Callahan for anything more than 4mil for 4 years I am done watching this team and i dont know how anyone would keep watching this bullshit. Its making me crazy thinking about it. They overpay for Richards, then they gave Hank too much, Danny G too much.... when does it stop????? Cally and JT need to be packaged asap.I despise callahan now, what a piece of shit. Hasnt played a full season in 4 years, has never eclipsed 30 goals. Its a fuckin joke, he would be on the 3rd line in chicago with no PP. Im losing my mind.
@DruBreezay hahahaha yes that was great!!!
1 year ago on Callahan for St. Louis Insanity
Its the years that are the problem, and he doesnt deserve 6mil. He barely deserves 5.5mil. He is a 3rd line player with a physical game. Come on, dont buy the hype.
1 year ago on Callahan's Agent Hasn't Spoken to Rangers or Other Teams
I think people are smoking crack on this blog. 36 points in 48 games, has cally ever had that ppg ratio? No. Cally is on a fuckin decline. I don't know how anyone has not noticed this but he is slower with the puck now. There is no way in hell a grinder that only scores 20 or less goals a season that are scrappy garbage goals should get 6mil a year. This is insane! Cally is not a dominant forward. That C on his jersey doesn't mean shit compared to what messier's did. Lets stop pretending here people. This is just gonna be another long, bad contract. He is a third line player now! Trade him and give the C to Mac truck.

1 year, 2 months ago on A Realistic Look At Why Lundqvist Is Struggling
why did we sign Lundqvist? I love him but if he doesnt get his game back this might be a worse contract than dare I say Redden! 2 great goalies cant exist on the same team, not only is it a waste but it causes problems. They need to keep playing Talbot and trade him for an elite center then pray to the heavens the king regains his throne.
1 year, 2 months ago on Rangers 2, Maple Leafs 1, SO
I agree, the NHL has changed so much since the lockout. Its all about speed and skill. Who wants to watch games with score of 2-1 or 1-0 wins with the scrappiest most garbage goals? Is that the hockey you guys really want? Cause thats all we saw when torts brought them to the ECF. Thats not entertaining.
1 year, 2 months ago on Remembering Dubinsky/Anisimov in GIF Form
thank you someone had to say it
@Dennosaw You are lumping 2 separate trades into 1. The Nash trade was worth it but trading away gaborik was not. He would have done well under AV. What kevin doesnt realize is Dubi and Anisomov play top minutes and the blue jackets are worse than us. If dubi was still on the Rangers he would not have 6 goals already this season maybe 2 or 3. People make so many comparisons and really have no idea what they are talking about. It blows my mind.
I swear every fuckin day this fuckin website takes longer and longer to fuckin load. I don't know what's slower, trying to type a comment on my iPhone or Pyatt trying to skate the length of the ice.
1 year, 4 months ago on Callahan Practices in Contact Jersey
@Easy_Kreider @Say my Name @IcyCup You are a delusional fan. There is no glimpse of success. Our only star player Nash, has been less than what we thought since he has been here. None of our prospects are looking promising, they all are just mediocre and dont say they need time they need time, you either have it or you dont, you are born with your skills. There is nothing to be excited about. When I watched them play the Sharks I started rooting for the Sharks because I am not just a Ranger fan, I am a hockey fan. The sharks goals were exciting to watch, they werent these bullshit scrappy goals. Rangers are just boring to watch and now the fact they really suck, how can you blame fans for jumping ship after 20 15 years of the same shit.
1 year, 4 months ago on Rangers @ Flyers (Game 8)
@shoot_the_goalie Come on we all know henrik was pure luck. Im talking about forwards, guys that just have those gifted skills and put that WOW on your face when they score or make a great play. Every prospect i have seen thus far has not shown me one moment that he is going to be special. You look at the elite teams right now in the NHL, every team has 1 or 2 players that they drafted and are killing it The best player we have drafted in the last 10 years is Callahan who has never passed 30 goal mark. That is horrible and inexcusable. Why doesnt anyone else see this?
