@GRYFAN These college FA signings are diamonds in the rough. Hayes (1st rd pick) and Haggerty could arguably be in the top 5 as far as our prospects go.

Our 1st line tomorrow night is HUGE. With that said, I'd actually prefer if the top 2 lines were:
Nash Hayes MSL
Kreider Brass Zucc
I wouldn't mind Hagelin sitting out for a game either with Duclair taking his spot (in the top 9). The Duclair benching is puzzling, especially when the kid has done nothing wrong to date.

@AnnoyingJoe One of those punishing hits you see only in video games. Legal hit nonetheless.

@wherewasi Duclair still looks more NHL ready than Miller. I could see Duke scratched for a few games over the course of the season but I think he's here to stay.
Sub par effort against a subpar team tonight. Going to thr game i was unimpressed overall but hank came up big when it counted and nash showed why the rangers were interested in him in the first place. As AV said, a win is a win. Time for the team to gel and play NY rangers hockey for a full 60 min.

@Say my Name I always get confused with todays contracts, but doesnt Nash have a NMC?

@Derek Stepan Tough decisions all around.
@GetTheKingACup Ference would be a nice upgrade. Since all EDM does is rebuild maybe we could offer Miller straight up
Last thing im trying to be is a troll. Ill leave that to the expert stRangers fan.

@IcyCup Last 3 seasons Lundqvist started 1-3 with a significant GAA and from what I recall things turned out just fine. Just gotta weather the storm and correct minor mistakes.

@Hotfreak @ATCRyan I anticipate Boyle coming back in better shape considering he can still skate and keep his conditioning up while he's on IR. I could be completely off with my suggestion, just saying anything is possible. AV doesn't seem particularly thrilled with the defensive corps as it stands.
Girardi has regressed to a #3/4 dman while Boyle can still hold his own as a top 2 dman that's all im saying

@Barry Beck Glass hasn't stood out in particular thus far; however, if he becomes ineffective I'd like to see Chris Bourque called up from Hartford. Based on his training camp alone the kid was very noticeable and a grinder. Think he would be very effective on the 4th line alongside Moore and Malone.

@kevin11 They were pretty effective years ago... I think Girardi brings McDonagh down, and Boyle has more upside imo

Any chance that AV puts Boyle on the top line with McDonagh and demotes Girardi to the 2nd defensive pairing when Boyle returns? Girardi and Staal did play together for a number of years...

@DP_Snotty @ATCRyan I've had my fair share of criticism over the past few years. At this point just gotta sit back and enjoy the roller coaster ride.

This isn't the NFL. 1 month of sub par play doesn't decide a teams fate for the season. 78 more games left to right the ship. LGR
@J_CKfor30 @ATCRyan @Wallace1 If we cant beat a Carolina team without both Staal's and Skinner that would be extremely disappointing. The room has to be angry after the past 2 subpar performances, so they should be ready to go by Thursday.
@J_CKfor30 @ATCRyan @Wallace1 I have no doubt that the tides will turn once Boyle and Stepan are back in the lineup. Until then just gotta hope the leadership in the room can motivate the team to compete and hopefully get as many wins as possible.
@J_CKfor30 @ATCRyan Anything is possible... Although Stralman was like 100 years younger than Kaberle is.
@J_CKfor30 @Wallace1 $5M for a 3rd line center isn't preferred but realistically that's what Brassard is. Stepan and Brass have to play a line up due to our lack of depth down the middle.
@KevinTheNYRBlog The curse of the #4 jersey continues...
Bringing in a player like Derek Morris or Tomas Kaberle is a band aid solution for the situation at hand; however, if either player is willing to take a reasonable pay cut to play on the 2nd/3rd pairing it would be extremely helpful. Hunwick was fine last night, Kostka was awful tonight. Prospects like McIlrath and Allen are available but a proven veteran dman (even one past their prime) would be a better option imho.
2 giveaways gave isles all the momentum

Halak and Kostka gave the isles the W tonight
Absolutely no excuse for this garbage.
He was definitely better than kostka
Who gets called up, Mcilrath or Allen?
So... Time to trade for a solid 7th dman
After the opportunity Miller has been given between last season and the start of this one im starting to think he's just a career minor leaguer
He'll be on waivers at some point this season. Hes this years Pyatt.

Fast is another one who could easily be replaced
1 week, 2 days ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/
After tonight they have to seriously consider bringing in another defenseman
Until this team is healthy its going to be very ugly
Few minor tweaks and we'll be back in business. One positive to take out of these 2 games is our guys are standing up for themselves and for eachother. That can go a long way over the course of an 82 game season.
Id even go as far as benching fast for stempniak or hayes

The boys better come out angry tomorrow night.
Officiating is consistently bad every year. What a freakin joke!
2nd game into the season, there is no reason to panic. Just need guys to step up. The sky isn't actually falling.
Even better. Malone better get a shot too
Hayes better be ready
Injuries happen but man do we have bad luck
Options on defense are limited but Derek Morris and Tomas Kaberle come to mind. Unless Sather pulls something out his bag of tricks I'm not sure what other options we have at the moment.
@J_CKfor30 Gordie Howe hat trick for Nasher tonight
Hes with cgy
