Sign Brassard. Him and Zucc mesh very well. Honestly I'd be nervous having that line completely blown up. Poops was the replaceable one, Brassard is young and has great hands and vision, just like Zucc. That is hard to come by

@NYRblogneill @xxscaxx that was a general statement, not towards you guys just meant all the damn comments about him lol

I know a lot of people wanted Heatley to come to the Rangers, and people will sit here and say OMG why didn't we get him, but I think some people don't realize that its not just as simple as that. Maybe Heatley didn't want to play in NY. Also like Kevin mentioned, he wanted to play with Getzlaf, so there you go, he WANTED to be in Anaheim. For all we know Sather could have made an offer to the guy.
I can't wait for another Ranger signing/news so I can stop reading about Tanner Glass.
Whos this Vinni Lettieri guy? Looks like he has quick speed and great hands. That move in the shootout was pretty sick.

@EquusBiz @xxscaxx not sure how to quote twitter posts but this is the post but maybe i read it wrong. asked for more from the rangers, they denied it, took less in TB (I think lol)
Stralman 5/$20M with Tampa Bay less than his last ask from Rangers. #Callahan

stralmans contract is 22.5, not 20. Apparently NYR offered more and he turned it down
wtf is going on with brian boyle?
@Say my Name I follow a bunch of the analysts/writers on twitter.
Its being pointed out that Dan Boyle left a lot of money on the table to become a NYR. Don't care how old, can't hate on that. Want guys that want to bleed blue!
dan boyle a ranger??
statsny to the blues
apparently brian boyle has a 5 year offer
@Zelrio This has been mentioned many times... a team cannot buy out a player then resign him. He would have to take a one year deal somewhere then come back if he really wanted to play for NY.

Was only a matter of time. I wish Brad the best of luck to whoever he ends up with. Sad that his contract ultimately did him in. Would have been nice to keep him if it wasn't so ridiculous towards our cap hit and the possible penalties we would acquire if he retired.
also comments on how they are open to trade miller, kristo, mcilrath for a #1 center

I wonder how accurate this article is, saying Richards will be bought out today or tomorrow.
Kreider is becoming predictable, make a goddamn move!

I haven't given up on Nash. The PCS could still be some kind of lingering issue or something that may have just slowed him down from here on out which is sad and disappointing.
He has to step up, but at least he is doing other things and isn't just a complete waste of space on the ice. Imagine if he wasn't scoring, wasn't making defensive plays, or doing the small things? That being said, if Rick Nash was playing at the level we all know he could play, jesus would we be dangerous or what.
@jopel007 He was stick checked right before he shot that puck.
@gravey94 @barondon No it was Nash, but he got tapped with a stick just as he shot the puck, which is probably why it went so damn slow lol
any of you guys catch this story?
@McPhee37 dude you really need to get a new excuse besides the hits. I used to love reading your posts but now its getting old. Wake up buddy, this isn't the 80's anymore. Hitting is not the end all be all to the damn game.
@gravey94 @xxscaxx LOL if thats true you may be old but you aren't living in the old times so thats all that matters

@gravey94 Good post. Pretty annoying to see all these stupid posts about how physicality will win - how did that work out for Boston against Montreal? Oh, and let me remind some of you old farts, this isn't the 80's anymore. The Chicago Blackhawks are NOT a physical team yet they were the Stanley Cup winners last year. Many of you may not like it but hockey is turning into more of a speed and finesse game than a physical one (unfortunately).
It seems some of you have bought into all the kings bias in believing they are the better team. Its only ONE damn game in a 7 game series. Last time I checked the Kings have to win 3 more against us. From what I saw last night, they aren't the big bad Kings everyone makes them out to be, and we can play with them. The thing with the Kings is they make you pay on errors, and it showed last night.
I need to stay off other sites posting Rangers news. My blood is boiling reading some of these idiotic statements coming out of people.
People are seriously saying that if Krieder didn't mean to fall he would have fell head first not feet first...some of these people obviously have never played hockey in their damn life.

@DP_Snotty @iwantgaborik @xxscaxx ah good point, bad wording on my part lol
@iwantgaborik @DP_Snotty based on previous call ups i'd assume Fast/Miller.
how do you post tweets again?
@AnnoyingJoe @SUPERBEAVER3000 not going to lie that would be pretty damn impressive
The difference between us and the Canadiens is we will take this and not use it as an excuse. I still have faith in the Rangers.
Funny how a lot of guys hate on Stepan, now everyone is worried the team will wilt without him lol. Definitely a huge blow if he can't play.
Agreed. Every time pouilot comes down he shoots high and wide. wtf happened to putting the puck on net?
Tokarski played well but he also was extremely vulnerable...st Louis put it in his glove twice as he was falling forward, and he was giving up rebounds left and right. I had a feeling we would drop this game but they got me all excited and now I'm bummed. Back at it Sunday.
Another shit goal...they have put only one puck past lundqvist so far this whole series
Rangers need to follow up after the first shot. Tokarski is giving up giant rebounds and has no idea where the puck is. Yet, hes playing amazing according to nbc...
may have been, but i didn't see him pulling to that side either. I'll wait to see the replay during the intermission lol
of all the times I have seen nash try that move he always goes far side and tries to wrap it around the goalie. He had tokarski if he attempted that, instead he tries short side. damn...
wtf is up with the ice tonight, puck is bouncing all over the damn place
I think if Step was hurt he wouldn't have came back out. He went to the locker room i'm sure to get evaluated after that hit. I don't think Nash ever left the bench when he got concussed.
i said the same thing when it happened, like wow nice save, then saw the replay lol. MSL didn't get all of it either, it was a flutter
Georges saved it actually, Tokarski didn't even touch it
I don't know about you guys but that was the best final two minutes I've ever seen the Rangers play. They controlled puck posession, got it out of the zone and thats without taking an icing. The pens came at them hard for a long time prior and I thought for sure the last two minutes were going to be completely gut wrenching yet they kept their composure and sailed to a victory. That was the most impressive part of last night for me honestly lol. Would have been nice to seal it with an empty netter but i'm used to not having that pleasure!

Zucc is like a young MSL. Had all the doubt around him when he first came into the league about being undersized and not having enough to make it in the NHL, and he is proving everyone wrong. I've loved Zucc ever since he put a jersey on, and its great to see someone fighting an uphill battle reach the top.

Wonder how JT Miller feels about this. First the callout by AV and now no call up.
I like this move. I know it was right when STL came onto the team, but when he played with Zucc they both seemed to get in each others way a little bit. If Nash and STL can get something going that would be a scary duo.
In before all the "this team lacks toughness" comments.

Man I wish I was good enough to play in the NHL. Crap like that would never fly with me if I was on the ice if someone did that to my teammate. Its like a natural reaction to go after someone doing that. Even if the dude was bigger than me I wouldn't even care, have had to do that plenty of times in college.
Just glad he didn't make contact with his hand. Simmonds and the flyers are just a bunch of crybabies. Enjoy the 0-8-0 record at the garden, losers.

shitty game.. but it happens. Back to work on thursday.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers @ Hurricanes (Game 66)
@IhaveawaiteratMSG Playing hockey all my life I can relate to how some of the guys feel. For the people saying "get over it", I wonder if they ever played. Or, if they did, what kind of player they were.
When we had a guy out of the lineup, especially someone we looked up to, it definitely takes a wind out of your sails. I think some people forget that all these guys are hockey players at heart, no one dreams to play in the NHL for the damn money... they do it because they LOVE the game.
That being said, there is no better person to put in the locker room in return than a guy like MSL. Callahan cannot be replaced, but I think it would be a lot harder if they went with the San Jose route and just got prospects/picks.
