@betweentheworlds yea I really don't understand. At his age 6 million per year seems more than reasonable for what he brings to the table (compared to what others like Nikitin are getting). I just have to assume he is asking for more than this, or a ridiculous amount of years.

@rangermom @KevinTheNYRBlog If Slats knew this he would have kept Stralman. But, part of the reason Staal's numbers are worse is because when not playing with Stralman he would be paired with Girardi or Del Zotto even most of the time. Stralman either played with Staal or Mcdonagh.

@gravey94 Ryan Nugent Hopkins, but make it Brassard, Miller and Mcilrath.

@Bleed_the_freak Let him take as much time as he needs to be 100 percent. If that is November 10th so be it. Too early to rush this kind of rehab.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @JMK8363 It is going to be interesting to see what happens when Stepan comes back. There are really so many options.

I just don't like the small line, but realistically the rangers aren't putting msl or zucc on the third line and the Nash line is just playing too well at the moment

I hope they boo kreider every time he touches the puck. He seemed to bring his game up to an even higher level when portrayed as the "villain". Gotta love CK
interesting read on the Duclair contract situation.

@fs2020 @KevinMccarthy As long as he doesn't get greedy and realizes he is a third loner (don't pull a callahan). He should stay.

If all Marc Staal wants is 6 million for 6 years why isn't this deal done already? He is worth about twice what Girardi is, and with the Cap going up that could be a steal in a year or two. Something tells me there is more money and length being asked for.
@ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat They gave up 2 goals immediately after losing Chara for the game... then they adjusted and looked like the Bruins again. My thought is don't worry about the Bruins, I'm sure they will get it together... and if they don't thats a good thing.

@Gorangers0525 @DP_Snotty pretty great for him... he will boost his offensive numbers on the island for a season, and then get a ton of money from a better team.
@AnnoyingJoe @ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat @DP_Snotty which time?
@Craptin McDonqvist Is that Nash?

The way Nash is playing, I wish we had a game everyday

@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?

@I Am Sean's Ruptured Spleen @CK Mcdonaughalds Heavy on both
best I can do with the internet being awful... Just picture the dancing.
also been trying to post the celebratory munn dancing gif, but google is letting me down hardcore
Good thing the Flyers and Islanders suck too...
Hunwick looks bette than Moore, love it.
What a play by KREIDER
@ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat pretty excited for Saturday, when Pacc does the exact same thing and there is no call.
Man I wish we got these calls...
I miss Stepan

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!!!
@Derek Stepan @J_CKfor30 http://www.capgeek.com/armchair-gm/roster/42696
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.

@Gorangers0525 @ATCRyan If Girardi is out for even a day... Please bring up Allen/Mcilrath... no more Kostka!
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
@Say my Name @DP_Snotty @Hotfreak like Miller
Would imagine Duclair is in for Hags or Zucc if this keeps up on Tuesday
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.
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
