Nothings for sure, of course, but either Allen or McIIrath or both are likely to develop into good NHL dmen. So MDZ is tradeable if he continues his current play consistently.He has trade value, he was a first round pick who has put up numbers in the past. Sather has to get at least a solid prospect or pick along with any player traded for MDZ.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Del Zotto Trade a Possibility?
Nash should start on the third line.He just had a concussion and should work his way cautiously even if he's 100 percent healthy.Also he still has to get into condition.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Zuccarello to be Bumped Out of Top Six Upon Nash Return
Miller is good- as we saw on that beauty tic tac toe goal -he just needs lots more time on the pro ice.Hartford is the place for him right now.Rangers are picking up their game and getting less tolerant of miscues.He knows what has to be done and can work on refining any NHL problem areas in Hartford where he'll get top line minutes.
St.Croix will probably find his game at some point and could easily have a turnaround aka Krieder.so look to him for the future, obviously he is struggling right now.Still too early to call him a bust.
4 weeks ago on Is St. Croix Demotion to ECHL a Prelude to Ranger Moves?
We all want to see the prospects but also have to do whats best.Lots of people said keep Kreider in the AHL-myself included,and that was wrong. However, that situation is unusual-Krieder really turned his game completely around suddenly,dramatically.
Point being, if Miller is halfway between AHL and NHL then get him to AHL top minutes to develop the dude properly.Same with Kristo and McIIrath.(can bring them up to have a look at them but if they benefit more by AHL send them back)
We absolutely have to develop these guys properly now.They are necessary for the team.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Nash, Moore Practice; Callahan, Stralman Take Maintenance Days
Lundqvist has looked human this early season, but Talbot has surprised so I'll take that trade off. Henriks game will pick up later in the season-little doubt-especially with Cam playing good amounts.Win some lose some but the team looks capable and with Nash back in top shape-they win this game.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Lundqvist Has to Make That Save
Torts and Sullivan went on one year too long.Somebody-not Sather-finally said enough is enough and Sather cut him lose quickly.That said the extra year got us AV who is going to be a great coach and build the team and players with his hockey smarts. It's a joke that Torts could get away with not practicing the power play.He was a one trick pony and it is now the AV era. Also, we know the Rangers and how each can play-we are going to start seeing that now -and also see them playing a better system.

Agree with six years. Lundqvist is a great goalie.There are outstanding goalies going to be available during the next six years in the market and the draft, maybe not as great as Lundqvist but outstanding. It is fairly likely Rangers can sign one or two of these if they scout well and make the effort.We don't have to sink or swim with Henrik.That said, he's a hockey great and would be nice to have as our goaltender.however ,6 years is about it.

Rangers can always use another defenceman in their system.

Beauty goal.Hope to see more of these as the team gets better chemistry.

@PacNYR44 I've never seen any noticeable problem with McIIrath's skating in the few games I've seen with him,I just saw someone who was outplayed and not ready for the NHL level.Connor Allen looked more adapted to the level, but Connor Allen is not going to bust someones nose for elbowing Nash or running over Lundqvist. Rangers need that confidence that someone always has their back.
1 month ago on Del Zotto to Be Benched or Possibly Traded?
MDZ still has trade value, so maybe something happens..
Oh boy, if McIlrath is able to play for the Rangers at a good no errors or lapses level that would be fantastic.That would really help the situation.
@MikeBlue Absolutely agree.They should have shoulder pads made of a different material.The ones they have are like armor.They have technological stuff-they should design new types.

He's certainly had a ton of pro experience in the AHL and done well.

Dubi always had something interesting to say.Looks like he hasn't changed.

16 games in-Its fair to make a first assessment.This team has real potential.Its hard to play against when it gets on the scoreboard first and doesn't make any stupid mistakes.Balanced, speedy, good goaltending, and capable of smart plays and scoring goals against anyone.
Has it got push back? Hope we don't have to find out very much this year.But we have to see on that.
1 month ago on Rangers 4, Blue Jackets 2
2 nice goals.Maybe 3 if you count McDonagh's. No dumb mistakes and another game for the Rangers.The boys can rest up and heal for a couple of days before Florida now.
@eric1940 Agree.Richards has to be bought out.
Like Zucc and dont understand the fans who want him gone, cuz his consistent good playmaking outshines his small stature and getting knocked around .That said, he has to finish. Thats what its all about. in NHL world. Doesn't have anything to do with his size, the same rules apply to everyone.You have to score some goals to stay on the top lines in the NHL.He has to get that puck in the net.
1 month ago on How About That Pass From Zuccarello?
Henrik. Boyle.Effort.No stupidity. Game Rangers.
1 month ago on Rangers vs. Penguins (Game 15)
If Krieder plays at the same level as he has played recently consistently, same points, same physicality, same playmaking- game in game out.Then it is not worth a gamble because of the Russian factor .Kreider would be helping the team but Yakupov could be gone to KHL.
1 month ago on Kreider for Yakupov?....LOL!!!!!!!!!
