@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.
4 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.
5 months 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!!!
5 months, 1 week 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.
5 months, 2 weeks 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.

7 months, 1 week 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.
7 months, 1 week 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.
7 months, 3 weeks 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.
9 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.
9 months, 1 week 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?
9 months, 1 week ago on Flyers 2, Rangers 1
Kevin I remember on this blog you used to always say "in gordie we trust" , not so trusting... Right now I dont think we have drafted one prospect that will ever be a superstar. When are the Rangers going to have a homegrown superstar??? We always have to get him from a trade or free agency. That is a big problem.
@HJB91 I hate to break it to you but the chance to trade del ziti has passed long ago. Im not bragging but I never saw potential in him, not a great skater, not strong, weak shot, not fast... all he had was good puck handling. There are a lot of people here that are blind fan boys. 2 years ago when he was really struggling I thought he should have been traded. So many people on this blog couldnt accept he is a failure and just kept saying he needs time. Well now he is worth nothing.
@shoot_the_goalie how does Del Zotto have any value? Cant create offense, cant play defense.... he is never going to be great. On a good team he is a 3rd pair defenseman.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Vigneault Could Push Sather for Trade
I completely agree. This game has evolved so much over the couple years and thats a good thing. It's all about speed and skill. Would you rather have a scrappy tough team like the Rangers 2 years ago or a team that scores tasty goals with beautiful passing and skill like the ducks and sharks??? I know what I want
I've been saying get rid of del zotto years now. Kevin you always said no he needs to develop, do you still feel that way? I remember you believed in Grachev and I knew he was a bust. The problems is the rangers hang on to these busts too long until they have no trade value. The Giants suck, the Rangers suck all is lost this winter.
Stop blaming the new system. These guys have been playing hockey their whole life. This team is just bad. Everyone on this site is blind and just fleeces everything. We had our chance to a cup and blew it. Our chance is gone now and who knows when we will be good again. Henrik even knows this, this is why he is not going to resign. We are in rebuild again. Wake up guys.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Sharks: A lot, Rangers: A lot less
Hahaha now that's a funny thought, Kreider score a goal like that. Kreider has hands of stone.
MCD missed 2 key scoring chances, that is the difference in this game. One pass he got from Nash right in front of Rask and another was a one timer point blank. Its that quick second to bury the puck and he just couldnt do it, similar to Hags with the breakaways vs caps. He is a great shutdown Dman but until he starts finsihing he will never be anything close to leetch. So many Dmen can play shutdown only few can do both. I dont ever see MCD doing both. Lets all get off his high horse.....
1 year, 2 months ago on Bruins 5, Rangers 2
Brassard needs to play with Nash, it was a great shot by girardi but brassard created the whole play. Lured the defense to him an floated that beauty backhand pass tape to tape. This guy is the real deal play maker and torts needs I see if him and Nash will click.
1 year, 3 months ago on Rangers 1, Islanders 0, OT
What bothers me is Miller looked better than Kreider. I still believe torts fucked with his head and changed his game. He was a stud in the playoffs, and all that was gone at the start of this season. He had no game from what he showed us in the playoffs, not one moment. Now how the hell does that happen? I can understand if he was in a scoring slump and was still creating chances but lets face it Kreider looked like shit 90% of the time he was on the ice for the Rangers. Baffles me how he can be so dominate in the PLAYOFFS , the playoffs to looking like he doesnt even belong in the nhl, baffles me

This is the same situation the NY Giants were in 6-7 years ago. They got rid of Shockey, Rangers got rid of Avery. Coughlin was the biggest hard ass, the players couldn't stand him. There were talks of letting him go. You know what he did? He lightened up on the players, he changed his ways, became more of their team mate than a coach just giving orders. The players love coughlin now. Torts is an asshole, like a dictator. Look how disrespectful he is to the media and especially sam Rosen. The guy has no respect and I can only imagine how he treats his players. Torts is one of those guys that is always right, and no one likes that shit.
1 year, 4 months ago on Happy Easter John Tortorella, You're Officially on the Hot Seat
It's the coach, am I the only that believes this? Fowler how can Nash, gaborik, and Richards all be under achieving? They all have one thing in common a bad coach. This asshole won a cup on a lucky run. He got a big head and they ran him out of Tampa. Did they trade vinny lecav no they got rid of the asshole coach. All I see is a team that looks stuff as a board. There is no chemistry and to me the only one that needs to go is the coach. It's amazing how kreider tore it up in the playoffs last season and now he is completely useless. Torts ruined him with his bullshit philosophy. Tampa won because of the players not this shrimp, disrespectful, bastard of a coach.

@kicker75 @johnnyb3910 @Ty Galpin @Kevin_H
Kevin_H i think nailed it perfectly, really a great comment and its a great theory. Kevin you should post his comment so everyone can read it. I for one agree, lets put it this way in the last 6 years why havent the Rangers produced a superstar from their own farm? How come when known superstars come to this team they either get worse or never improve?? I dont think Kreider is a good example cause he was doing awful with the Whale, unless they preach torts' system down there too

Who really thinks Carl hagelin is a top 6 forward?He looks lost out there and he is playing with the top talent. I thought even last year he was playing over his head and this year he looks even worse than last year. It's. shame kreider is in one hell of a slump. I do agree with whoever said mdz looks like a boy among men in the ice and Bickel getting caught flat footed was embarrassing he is a pylon. There is not much chemistry and flow to there game. There is a lot of rough edges with this team right now.
