2 days ago on Time for Henrik Lundqvist to Carry Rangers Out of Mediocrity
The Hobbit is quickly becoming my favorite Ranger. Love the way he plays. Will also be happy when Dorsett is fully healed and can replace Pylon or Poopalot. Those guys are just awful.

@gravey94 I think this analysis is spot on. Of course would always be good to pay less and/have fewer years but need to look at what market rate is and what alternatives are. As long as Slats is confident that this leaves him room to surround hank with a good squad seems like a good deal to me.

I am more interested in how this affects Ranger's ability to sign other free agents they have coming up. Will they have to let everyone else go to pay for Hank?

@johnnyb3910 @Kevin DeLury I like how Sam and Micheletti will also give praise to the other team and are not ridiculous homers. You can clearly tell they both want the Rangers to win but they are not afraid to call them out where fair. I cannot imagine listening to a Pens, Flyers or Caps broadcast and hearing the announcers be as complimentary to Rangers player as those guys were to Benn, Lehtonen and others last night.

Loss notwithstanding, I was pretty encouraged by this game. I remember watching Blackhawks, Bruins, Sharks games last year and thinking those teams are so much faster and more skilled than the rangers it was not even funny. The Rangers could not (or would not) even put three passes together or have any counter-attack. Still a long way to go, but at least now it looks like this team COULD compete at that level if, you know, they could put the puck in the net. Agree Zucc has to start shooting a little more instead of always trying to make the hard pass.

@pkh33 Agree. Krieder is big and tough, but Lucic would destroy him! Has Kreider ever even fought before? Better to throw Dorsett out there. He would probably lose to Lucic as well, but at least he knows how to fight.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Nash Returns Tonight; MIller Scratched
Now we can spend the rest of the day arguing about what the new lines should be! Here are mine:Kreider - Stepan - Nash
Zucc - Richards - Cally
Hags - Boyle -BrassardMiller - Moore - Dorsett
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Rumor: NYR Interest in Martin Havlat?
@danblackburn I was thinking same thing. Could also be that he sees his window for cup closing so is more bitchy/whiny when things are not going well. Either way, not a huge fan although he did not seem to be directly calling out offense last night when he was talking about bad bounces. Kind of true.

Not sure how much of an upgrade Falk is. He did not look too good in the two games he played earlier in the decision. Is Johnson not a possibility at all?

All this time between games sucks......

Not sure what it was but even when Rangers kept tying it up, this just felt like one they were going to lose.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Rangers Fall Late to Devils 3-2
Listening to the commentators on MSNBC would have thought Pens won 5-1 "great backcheck by Crosby", "Paul Martin is having a great game" "Can't blame Fleury for those goals." There was also a lot of talk about Hank saving their bacon early on, which is true, but really ignored what was otherwise a great performance by the entire team (other than DZ).

Why does Pierre McGuire sweat any team that plays the Rangers? Certainly the Ducks outplayed the Rangers and are a better team but the Duck-love was a little much.

@shishya100 Now i am convinced it has to be more than pictures. Maybe AV and Pyatt are an item?

@MikeBlue I thought Zucc played pretty well, especially in 3d period. Fast did not stand out, but seems pretty responsible defensively and does PK so I am okay with him (although i guess he is down in Hartford now). Cannot for the life of me understand why Pyatt is still playing. He must have a picture of AV with a goat or something.

@TruBluEsp We don't need Nash. We have Pyatt.

I don't think slats is going to screw up keeping hags, Stepan and McD. Don't always trust him on free agency signings but i am pretty sure those guys will be signed up soon. Likely zucarello too.
