The NYR would be outmuscled against half the teams that were in the women's Olympic hockey tournament.
There are only a couple of players on this team with any heart - they are not going anywhere and I'm sick of the same old shitty gameplan with the heartless perimeter players

Why would anyone trade us a top 2 damn for Girardi? If they do its bc they have baggage or their contract sucks. Stralman deserves a 2 yr deal. Consistent stay home dman who gets the job done. Arguably the most consistent dman on team
Same old NYR playing the names but not the guys performing. Miller and Krieder have played well but they'll take a backseat to Richards and Nash who have done dick this season

@JustinRP37Exactly - the only positive in that game IMO is that finally we have someone on this team other than Dorsett with a set of balls. As far as everything else goes,it took a shootout to beat one of the worst teams in the league and they were lucky they didn't lose. This team is not good. Still too soft, still too small, still to skilled. The funny thing is for all the skill they have, they can't score. Very few guys on this team are willing to pay the price to score goals

You guys do realize that McGrattan is currently a top 3, if not the #1 HW in this league, right? The kid showed me something to step right in, in his 2nd NHL game and take on a legit fighter. He didn't go after some bum who he knew he could shitkick, he was willing to step to one of the best in the league at their craft. He looks lost in his own zone so far however and looks to need a lot of work. Thankfully we finally have someone who will punish the other team or stand up against the HWs of the league and not embarrass themselves

7 months, 1 week ago on Rangers Making Inquires About Evander Kane?
There are some major rumors about Kane and his personality/attitude and that's why he's on the block. Why else would he be on the trade block? I hope the NYR tread carefully on this one.
Not saying Mashinter was much good but sounds about right for the way this organization is heading, trade any sense of toughness. Are the NYR trying to qualify for some women's professional league I don't know about? What's softer than soft? The New York Rangers

That's a contract he deserved maybe 3-4 yrs ago. Now at 31, the NYR may seriously regret this when he's 37 & 38. Then again, if the cap skyrockets the way it looks like it will this won't be as much money in 5-6 yrs as it looks today IMO.

He's a giant puss. Never have I seen someone look over their shoulder so much when going for the puck. The kid is afraid of his own shadow. It's disgusting to watch. That and the fact he's a turnover machine, horrible defenseman and couldn't hit the back of a barn door with a shot let alone a 4x6 goal!
Agree 100% with your statement that hank should've taken the blame and cut the shit about the "we." Even if that's the case, man up and accept the blame. How often does he get the praise when things are going well (granted he usually deserves it). Well, when you eff up, own it

I'm sorry, you step in and help when necessary. I'd hope that someone would do the same for me. In saying that, I'd step in and save a Flyers fan too if he were being attacked by multiple Rangers fans. People need to grow a pair. You can't go around with your head up your ass. I hope that whoever stood by idly and watched these guys get beaten needs assistance some day and others just stand on an watch. I hate cowards. The attackers were cowards and the people that did nothing but watched or walk away were cowards too.

@AnnoyingJoe Honestly, it was a pretty smart business decision. Do you know how many Cablevision customers are in the same boat as me and wouldn't leave for Verizon b/c we can't stand watching our team in non-HD. I could never watch hockey again in standard def, I'd rather blow my brains out
2 years, 7 months ago on MSG HD Coming to Verizon in a Couple of Days | December
@erichan Thanks for the response. I've had several family members & friends in past few yrs tell me about grislly fluctuating prices. Maybe Verizon has finally fixed that. I'd consider making the jump if I knew the price for 2 yrs would be less than the $130 or so per month I pay Cablevision for the Triple play (I don't even plug a damn phone into my land line, what a joke that promo is)
I'm considering switching from Cablevision myself. I can lock in now for around $100 per month (I'm just afraid b/c Verizon always known to add crazy fees). Their channel selection and quality is much better than Verizon, not much holding me back now
@TheKing@KevinDeLury Disagree, Dubi didn't lay into MAB like he could have. If anything, it showed his teammates he's willing to get involved and take on someone much bigger than him. No way did he look foolish, he showed he had a pair

Has he been great, certainly not. And with that new contract he damn well better be a lot better but he hasn't been as bad as some are making out. Honestly, at this point I'm more disappointed in his linemates - Captain Cally and Artsy Fartsy. Dubi hasn't seemed too into it yet. He did lead the charge up the ice and make a nice pass in Calgary that set up the GWG. Once again, Dubi's main problem has always been consistency. I may be wrong but it seems like every year he starts off slow. Like I said, right now I'm more worried about Callahan who seems like he forgot that the reason he got the "C" is because the intensity he brings 82 games a season. So far, that intensity has been a big flop.

@HowlingsToday just retracted the statement, apparently Redden didn't break his leg there was confusion in a statement from a source
Exactly, the writing was on the wall before Avery even laced them up. You put two blank name plates on the back of Avery & EC's back and ask anyone who has ever watched a single hockey game who was the better/more effective player and anyoneone with a semblence of hockey knowledge picks Avery. Unfortunately, many don't like Avery b/c of his reputation and even more unfortunate is that one of those people is Torts. It's ridiculous that Avery is in CT. He's a spark plug that this team will need in some games. EC is the biggest waste of space on the team, and one of, if not the most inconsistent players in the entire league.
2 years, 9 months ago on Avery Reports to Whale | October
I'm trying to withhold judgment b/c it was his first game and likely had a lot of nerves but last night I wasn't impressed at all. I'm hoping that his nerves settle and he improves drastically throughout the rest of pre-season. If not, there's no chance he starts the yr in NY

2 years, 10 months ago on Avery & Rhoda Breakup | September
@ScottyHockey Exactly, as much as I like guys like Dubi, Callahan; the only true untouchable on this team is Lundqvist. You should only be untouchable if you are the best in the league at your position and Hank is arguably that. I would trade any player on this roster plus a 1st rounder (except Lundqvist) for Weber. It's an easy decision. But, I think this is a moot point b/c there's no way NY gets Weber
2 years, 11 months ago on Would You Give Up Staal, Stepan or AA for Weber? | August
Would it really surprise anybody if he did say it? He's an agitator, it's not like he pisses people off by saying stuff that's not "off color". I'd have a problem if he was saying it to fans or people on the street, but IMO I'd expect that and much worse to be said during trash talk. I've heard worse and I don't play a professional sport

I don't hate Micheletti but he can get a tad annoying. He has to point out about 500x in one game when anyone is playing that's from Minnesota. Ok, once is fine but by the 5th time it just gets ridiculous. He also makes mistakes all the time w/ player IDs. I also remember last year when he was avidly saying the puck hadn't crossed the line and the replay in front of us was showing the puck about a foot over the goal line.
Although Sam is not what he once was he still is one of the best in the game, maybe I'm a litle biased b/c I remember watching him since I was a kid. The one thing I can't stand is when there's a fight or the game gets chippy he gets up on his soapbox about how "this doesn't belong in the game!" All in all, compared to the other announcers I hear like Chico, Doc, the Isles guys, Olczyk I can't complain too much about what we get to see on a nightly basis. 3/5 is a fair assessment. I don't agree that Joe is carrying Sam though, that's a little ridiculous IMO.

Thanks for sharing.
Ryan, if you're reading this, I'm very sorry for your loss.
I've been a big fan of Derek's for a long time, even before he became a NYR. I'm a big fight fan and watching Derek was a treat. The day he became a NYR I was excited to see him on a nightly basis. I only wish we could get to see more of Boogaard next year and for years to come. I'll never forget that Ducks/Wild game where Boogaard was sent out onto the ice with the fans chanting his name, that still gives me chills when I watch it on Youtube. I know for a fact that Derek would've came back bigger and better this coming season. He was a warrior on the ice and by all accounts a great guy off the ice. He'll be missed. I'm not just saying this because it's the right thing to say, Boogaard was one of the most dominant fighters this sport has ever seen - it's just unfortunate that he didn't get to dominate for a lot longer! RIP Boogey Man
He may have been traded for only a pick, but he was selected 75th overall and was just traded for a 72nd pick. Not terrible. I think many including myself think that Grachev was drafted earlier than mid 3rd round. As I wrote on my own blog yeterday, To have a third round pick from three years ago, who hasn't done much in either the NHL (in limited action) or the AHL request a trade and be able to flip him for an improved draft pick is actually not a bad thing at all. 28 goals total in 2 AHL seasons? Not the type of numbers that indicate that a player is busting at the seams ready to make the jump to the NHL to contribute in a top six forward position IMO

I can't stand their constant diving and whining about every single physical play. I like tough/hard/physical hockey and the Bruins bring that to the table, the Canucks meanwhile have a punk in Burrows and a bunch of guys that won't even defend themselves (eg. Sedin getting rabbit punched 6x in the face by Marchand and just crying to the ref).
