@DubiLeetch @dave56dj didn't you see my responses to them? I conceded the point, no use in belaboring it.

@CareyBrandsdorfer I felt like I saw him lolligagging on a few shifts as well, Im gonna chalk it up to a bad eyeball test and assume I just saw a couple of plays at the end of shifts otherwise AV would have limited him.
@mlsranger @dave56dj I'll buy that mls - good point
@Herman_NYRBlog @dave56dj fair enough
"The Brad Richards of last season would have thought about it for the rest of the game and sulked around the ice pitying himself." The reference to Richards hypothetically sulking last year is just silly to me. I'm not saying he wouldn't have or that he didn't, its just not something I understand sports fans speculating about. We are not in his head and to blame some of his poor play last year on the idea that a vet, who has been very successful on the ice both mentally and physically, suddenly started sulking seems so silly. We know he wasn't in the best hockey shape in the short season, so wouldn't his physical makeup, an aging vet, be more likely the cause of down play then a sudden mental lapse?
@Kevin DeLury @dave56dj ha ok fair enough.

@KreiderisTheChosenOne @Kevin DeLury @dave56dj PLAYOOOOOOFFFFS? YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT PLAYOOOOFFFS? Thanks for the soft toss.
@Kevin DeLury @dave56dj well i appreciate the blog and your analysis a great deal so thanks for writing it. I guess the point is you clearly have a great knowledge for the team and it feels like you lower yourself when you give into what you are calling "emotion," but i would just call carelessness or lack of thought. Ok ok Ive said enough, again I will conti
nue to read and appreciate your take , thanks.
I really do love the coverage and appreciate this blog, but just a little contsructive criticism. From post to post - game to game it just feels like there is no awareness that this is a marathon not a sprint. It was about 3/4 games ago there was questioning wether richards start was a fluke, three games later its last year was a fluke. This is one small example. Again I love the site I just wish there was slightly more patience to assess, rather then treating each game like it was a one game cup. It often seems highly reactionary .
HA - jeter is the best ss in baseball? this is so inaccurate its hilarious. Tulo - pre injury was putting up better numbers then jeter had seen in years. Segura is by far more exlosive - desmond is better - everth cabrera is better - Yes jeter is an all time great but he is not the player he was. And is not the best ss in the game today - not even top 5.

@AnnoyingJoe @ry_man Drunk is not an excuse for being a racist. I'm sure we will soon here he/ she has black friends so its all good.
@ry_man this kind of racism is offensive and you should be ashamed, but more then likely you are to ignorant to express such an emotion.
Im sorry but winning is a cure all and it covers up every pock mark. Did they play a lot better tonight? No, not really. Chara (or dougie not communicating) gave us one, and rask falling on his own but gave us another. They still out shot us and their depth is far better. That said we win b/c of the KING and if Nash can stay in beast mode we might have a shot in game 5 but they are much deeper then us. I don't expect their fourth line will be backing down in boston - Thornton is no "bitch" as you callously referred to him as. That said the 4th liners were physical and AT TIMES it helped. The Newbury penalty lead directly to a goal and was pretty much a tackle, not smart. Kreider just has to see more ice as he did tonight, he is a freight train. Need pyatt and boyle in front all day in boston. Hamrlik is soooo ancient - hope one of the inured comes back sat. It's nice to still be playing - hope they are after saturday too.

Truth be told ovi's responsibility is the point man. I'm a ranger fan so killing #8 is fine by me but if you let the tape run you see cally slide in the same way. 24 was a big part of the play but it was pretty much over at that point. The guy is one of the greatest players in the game and its tough blaming him for everything that goes wrong - again his responsibility on the play is the point and thats where he was - not cherry picking as some would leave you to believe - stepan is certainly not his man.
