@TomDundie @J_CKfor30 If you want to lose Saturday, leave Glass in to get skated circles around all night.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @Dminches 6 points in 7 games... Pretty sure if he continues what he is doing currently he would be a 70 point player in his second full year. That would be insane, but of course by that same logic, Nash would have more than 82 goals this season.

Duclair has to be in the lineup Saturday night. Thats the kind of home game where he would bring the extra edge, and we should match speed with speed. I would bump Stemp to the 4th and take Glass out.

I know it is in Montreal, but with the limited number of games over the next two weeks, would have to think Hank will get the next 3, right?

@ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat pretty excited for Saturday, when Pacc does the exact same thing and there is no call.

I swear... every other night I say this is the worst officiating I have seen in awhile, but tonight is a joke. 3 of the 4 calls against the Rangers just plain aren't penalties. Malone got called for someone half his size skating into him... Wish zucc got those calls, but instead people on the Blue Jackets can blindside him and try to take his head off

Just one observation, Staal has been better than Mcdonagh in every area of the ice. Not a knock on Mac as his game is starting to come along, just want to point out how solid Staal looks this year. LGR!!!

Kind of a beautiful thing. Even swap MSL and Kreids. I hope Mr. Sather sees this and acts on it.

@Derek Stepan @J_CKfor30 Yea it is pretty crazy speculation, but something that would help us. I would rather see Brass/Hags/Mcilrath for Ryan Nugent Hopkins from Edmonton. Edmonton is struggling, and I think they would love this trade, as they would get a blue-chip young d-man, a replacement center in Brassard and a solid winger that plays a two-way game in Hagelin. we get RNH back who is 21 and would immediately become our number one center with the sky as his ceiling.

@ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat I'd pick Girardi. Usually when Girardi plays well the Rangers win. When he doesn't it always results in goals against since he is playing against top-end talent every night and doesn't have the recovery speed Mcdonagh does.


Still need to see Mac get involved offensively.

@Gianni74 @Barry Beck Not to mention Statsny, who is on my fantasy team, is week to week with a shoulder injury that probably won't heal properly all season. His numbers are about the same as Richards, so there is no way the Rangers were making a similar investment in him. Even if it isn't elite, the Rangers center position will probably be locked up once Stepan is signed, as Brass is making top 6 money. Hopefully, Hayes can continue his play and give us a solid 4 centers. Still don't love the Brass signing. 


As for Hags if he asks for 4 million plus, the Rangers may ship him at the deadline for a pick and some depth.

Not excited at all that Kostka might play tomorrow. Hopefully, AV just plays the Staal-Mcdonagh pairing for 30-35 mins.

Still don't like Glass on that 4th line. He is just so bad with the puck every time I see him with it.

@ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat But what about Zucc or Duclair, based on the first 6 games? Or glass?

Just want to say, that Hagelin goal is exactly why Miller is in the AHL. No way he shows the extra-effort and goes for that rebound.... He just plays like he is to good for that kind of gritty play. Won't be an NHL-er until he finds that griittiness

Hunwick has been more than suitable. I think he has been a better player than Moore or Klein. Can't believe AV even considered Kostka

There will be a million people that hate me for this comment... but every time we play a big, playoff type team Zucc is a non-factor. Awful start to the season from him.

Simple analysis:


1. Right now the Sharks are a good hockey team and the Rangers are not, but it would be a major feat to steal some points.

2. Now the opposing goalie doesn't even have to cover the puck to get a whistle against us.

3. PLEASE break up the midget line that cannot win one board battle

Big game today, need to take advantage of the Sharks early (with them being on a back to back across the country). Also, have to win some face-offs against a really good team down the middle, otherwise they will control the game. LGR!!!

@JoeyKocur @J_CKfor30 Zucc or Hags would be at the top of the list in terms of wingers.

Ugh the zucc and MSL experiment again... Didn't work last time and won't work this time. Also, while I like the size of the Kreider-Hayes-Nash line, there isn't' really a setup guy there for Nash or Kreider. I think you have to switch one of those wingers.  Also, Duclair not being in the lineup is puzzling to say the least

Rangers have a ton of wingers... trading one of them for a dman or a center could be the move. It would open up cap space and provide us with help at a position we need.

@GiveGartneraCup @J_CKfor30 Please... no way I'd include Step for a 29 year old injury prone center with 2 years left on his contract at 8 million+.  Not in a million years

@GiveGartneraCup @J_CKfor30 "Several NHL insiders -- including the Toronto Sun’s Steve Simmons -- propose the Hurricanesmight be open to trading their captain for the right price. Staal would be willing to waive his no-movement clause for the opportunity to join the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team with enduring interest in the 29-year-old forward. 


Now whether the Maple Leafs would be willing to part with the hefty asking price for Staal -- rumored to be a package including forward Nazem Kadri, defenseman Jake Gardinerand a first-round draft pick -- is a whole other bunch of bananas. 

However, the potential fantasy ramifications of such a deal are quite interesting. In Toronto, Staal would conceivably center the Leafs’ second scoring line, if not the top unit with Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk, in place of Tyler Bozak. A role with the top power-play unit would likely also be in the cards, which suggests the former fantasy heavyweight might have a shot at reclaiming that departed fantasy glory. Even though Staal isn’t the has-been some disgruntled fans would have you believe, his most recent numbers haven’t been stellar, either (61 points and a minus-13 in 79 games in 2013-14). 

Odds are that the Hurricanes hold onto their captain for the duration of the season. But a trade -- involving the Leafs or another contender -- can’t be ruled out altogether. Stay tuned. " (ESPN.com)

@GiveGartneraCup @J_CKfor30 It says in the article that Staal would waive his NTC to go to Toronto... doesn't even mention New York because I just don't think it can work with all the pieces we have to consider. Still have to resign Staal, Stepan,etc. Also, no one is trading for Jordan Staal with that contract and his current injury.

@JMK8363 @Zelrio @J_CKfor30 JT Miller is NOTHING like Dubi. From day one Dubinsky was all heart, Miller is the opposite.

@GiveGartneraCup @J_CKfor30 Yes. Unfortunately it is for the Maple Leafs. They would offer a package of Kadri, Gardiner and more. Rangers don't have the space/players/picks to compete with an offer like that. Best we could probably offer is Hagelin/Zucc, Moore, Miller, and a second. We really can't afford to lose any defensive depth either.

@JMK8363 @J_CKfor30 I really can't stand when people make that comparison. Kreider made an impact IMMEDIATELY on being brought up straight out of college. He put up stats and was able to play as soon as he got up to the big leagues, the only reason he was sent down was because of his lack of hockey knowledge/defensive capabilities. I am not sure how many games Miller has played (has to be 50 by now) and has he even scored 3 goals? JT Miller is not in the same time-zone as Kreider. And while he is still only 21, it may be time to start realizing that he isn't as talented as we first anticipated. AV is not Tortorella, and him not having faith in Miller shows a lot about what he thinks of him as a player. 


He had every opportunity this year with us losing Richards and Stepan getting hurt, and it seems he has already blown it. Hopefully Mueller will succeed in the role, although Hayes has looked great he just needs to win some faceoffs

@DP_Snotty Every year at the beginning of the season. most of the time the defensively focused teams will struggle as their system gets put into place and all the chemistry works itself out. For offensively focused teams (San Jose, NYI, Tampa Bay even) they are built on scoring goals and are loaded with talent, which is easier to come by. As the season drags on the defense -first teams will get better and teams like the Isles will fold as their defense and goaltending become exposed.

Big step back for Miller... kid hasn't looked the same since the first pre-season game. Wouldn't be surprised if he is used as a trade-chip as he has just not been able to find his footing in NY. AV doesn't seem to like what he brings to the table either.

@SmellyKisio There are so many choices to pick from, but I will go with the one still embedded in my head. Game 5 2OT about 20 seconds before they won the Cup. Rick Nash had a wide open net to send the series back to MSG. He hits the defenseman's stick shaft it deflects high and LA takes it the other way and wins. I walked out the second he missed that empty net because I knew the series was over.

@Say my Name @gravey94 I agree, but I also think that Kreider-Brass-Zucc line had their moments last night. On that goal, they worked the boards well, and got to the front of the net.  I just think the Rangers played poorly last night, and the only reason they got away with it is because they were playing an AHL-caliber team that just lost to the Buffalo Sabres
