In the least shocking news of the day. AV has not changed the PP units at all. You'd think the other night would've been the obvious wake up call to put Klein in G's place. But nope, guess he really thought the locker room was joking post game.

Tonight was Macs best game of the season imo

Mdz for Klein?! Stealll
U mean the rangers bank it off the glass for 2?
Maybe hes threatened because of the British royalty in town stepping on his turf.
Hank is his own worst enemy. The heightened expectations of an 8.5m contact is crazy.
It actually was ketchup on the side of Kleins head
Atleast Glass is back in the lineup. Id much rather have him over Duclair.
Getting outplayed by an injury depleted team. Nice.
@J_CKfor30 @ATCRyan Desperate times in Edmonton... Anything is possible.

@J_CKfor30 @Say my Name If Staal isn't willing to take a more cap friendly deal then he is as good as gone. For as good as he's been in the past he's been equally as bad this season alone. Hopefully Sather can somehow swing a MDZ for Klein-esque deal this year.
If zucc is potentially trade bait Sather has to pitch the chemistry he had with pouliot to edm. The return could be huge.
Lol glad that dream led to your awesome post this morning.
THIS! You DO NOT pay for past production in the cap era. Sather has set an awful precedent which is exactly why nobody takes hometown discounts (minus zucc) to stay here. He needs to get his head out of his ass and hand the reigns over to Gorton
Although very winnable, this game had letdown written all over it. 5 days off (which could've been a good/bad thing) + 5 straight wins vs det + 2 straight shutouts for Talbot (vs not only Philly,but Detroit too) was a recipe for disaster.
As Neill mentioned, this game was extremely frustrating to watch. This mediocrity isn't going to fly for much longer.
@J_CKfor30 @ATCRyan Sad but very true.

@J_CKfor30 God I hope not. Staal needs to go. As every game goes by the glaring mistake of not re-signing Stralman seems to be painfully obvious.
Its truly amazing how much of a 180 this team has done from last year. Yes its only Dec but how could this inconsistency continue for this long? The players only meetings and AV calling out the star players obviously is ineffective. Ultimately at this point in time what this team truly needs is a shake up via trade.
Tonight's game is one of, if not the most disappointing game of the season. All this talk of the players licking their chops to get out there after 5 days rest and this is the result?! Spare me the hot air...
I predict cally gets hurt blocking a shot late march or early April
Ben bishop?! Guess we're screwed tonight
Zucc is the only one though. Wish others players would do the same.

@IhateGaborik @fs2020 My buddy and me were just having a conversation about the Lundqvist contract. Yes he obviously bleeds blue and has been a huge part of the Rangers success. But in order to continue the success you'd think he would take a bit less to keep the team competitive. The guy makes a shit ton of money in endorsements outside of his contract. i think he could've cut us a break.
Looking at the LA Kings (who I know have won 2 sc's) sign players like Gaborik, Muzzin, Martinez to amazing/cap friendly contracts, it sickens me to see our players not take home town discounts to stay here. The team has been on the cusp for the past few seasons, yet players continue to put their financial needs ahead of the chance of glory.

@J_CKfor30 Sekera is a good short term solution; however, looking into next year I'd like to see the Rangers try to get Krug from Boston. They're crunched with the cap too so who knows if they'll be able to offer him what he really deserves.
@Scott from SEC 224 @Say my Name At $2m for the next 4 years Im on board

@Say my Name @ATCRyan I think Zucc would be better on the 3rd line with Hagelin and Hayes as well. Stempniak hasn't done anything terrible but he hasnt exactly lit it up either. I truly think at this point in his career he is a 4th liner. It becomes a question of who should stay with him and Moore though. Miller or Fast. Both have made a solid case. I truly do not see a place in this lineup for Glass when he recovers from the mumps.
Nash Brass Kreider
Duc Stepan MSL
Hags Hayes Zucc
Fast/Miller Moore Stempniak
thats the lineup I'd like to see for a few games. Of course having D Boyle back on the blue line will help as well.
Might be a good idea to give Duc a look with Stepan and MSL while kreider sits for a game or two.
If AV decided to keep Kreider in the lineup i think putting him with Nash is the obvious next move. Brass distributing the puck to 2 huge wingers sounds pretty good imo.
@J_CKfor30 Hindsight is 20/20 but this one in particular really hurts. G is a shell of himself along with the majority of the d-corps

@SmellyKisio The fact Hank was 0-2 going into tonight against TB is alarming. AV should've made the obvious choice and started Talbot, but hey there's like 59 games left right. Hank will find his game (i hope).
@J_CKfor30 Atleast they'll stay warm
@J_CKfor30 @Skate31 Story of the night. Couldn't clear the zone.
@J_CKfor30 GAA is overrated its all about corsi and fenwick these days
Maybe if we play them in the post season Kreider can take out Bishop and then we're good to go! See you all at the canyon on heroes
@leftwingbarbara @ATCRyan All very deserving candidates
J Moore... welp he'll be in the press box on saturday
@J_CKfor30 @AnnoyingJoe Scary part is he keeps saying he's close to being on top of his game
@IhateGaborik @Bleed_the_freak This is all eerily familiar... Its deja vu from last season
@betweentheworlds Cant wait to see the post game presser with Hank
@NYR44 There will be trades, whether its soon or at the deadline.
@J_CKfor30 NHL officiating for ya...
@Bleed_the_freak Inconsistency in calls is baffeling
@J_CKfor30 Maybe he can get a hair cut and manicure too before Saturdays game
@J_CKfor30 Well we tend to play Pitt well...
@leftwingbarbara realistically the only player we couldnt keep was Pouliot due to his contract demand. What a cluster fuck
@betweentheworlds I'm heading to LA next month for the Kings and Ducks game. Atleast Talbot will be in one of those for sure.
We outplay this team 2 out of 3 periods and we're down 5-3... I dont get it. Talbot should've come out for the 3rd period.
@DP_Snotty vezina worthy
@betweentheworlds Bishop aint giving up 6 goals
Hope Lundqvist is enjoying that nice cushy contract. He's really earning that paycheck
PUT TALBOT IN
