I keep harkening back to what you posted earlier, Adam. What Zucc sacrificed, potentially millions, so not only could he stay but Stepan could as well was showing he bleeds Ranger blue. And he exhibits that every single shift. As bad as we all feel at the seeming inevitability of losing him, is Cally willing to sacrifice at all to remain a Ranger the way Zucc did, with a lot less to work with than Cally has? If not, good riddance.

Being a Detroiter and a fan of both teams, the Rangers need to be careful not to take the Wings lightly even with the staggering list of injuries. The kids from Grand Rapids are a hungry, speedy talented corps and they can surprise you. NYR get a break though with no Magic Man, but it's sad for the fans.

Very very well put and great insight. I saw Vancouver both last night and Friday and was very impressed by what Torts has done with that team. You are right that Boston was under-manned, but I marveled at the discipline much like what the Rangers used to show. Even longed for it. I had to laugh when he called a time out after Boston scored, obviously "unhappy", and they turned around and scored immediately and really never looked back. Sure don't always agree with his methods, but you cannot argue with the results.

Well spoken, thought-provoking and more than fair. Hope he sees this! Great job, Adam!

Hartford might be the kindest thing for DZ both mentally and technically. As for the goalies, please tell me there is no way Lundqvist sits tomorrow! I don't doubt for a second the influence of NBC and the league in playing not just your marquis goalie but your marquis player today, but he has to be in there tomorrow for the match against Torts. No knock against Talbot whatsoever; Lundqvist deserves that start for being a cornerstone of that era.

I never lost faith in Dorsett for kind of an odd reason - I follow Mike Commodore on Twitter. He's hilarious, but unlike Bissonette, he has some valuable hockey insights, and he had interesting takes on the Columbus/Rangers deals having played with those guys. He raved about that deal and he said given time, Rangers fans would fall in love with Dorsett and he raved about him doing just that kind of stuff and made no secret of how much he respected him. He was right.

Very well said - and definitely rightfully so!

You had guys like Kreider, Hagelin and Zucc flying out there and totally neutralizing the Habs, McDonagh having a game worthy of a Norris finalist, and Talbot making the hardest saves look like pieces of cake - always being where he should be. It was perfection and such fun to watch. Wonder how many times Prust thought to himself, "Who are these guys?" :)
I have been blown away watching Zucc for the past few weeks - and it goes beyond the passes he has made and how fearless he is. You don't see guys a foot taller muck it up the way he does! But all I could think of watching him was had Torts not been fired, he would have continued to be buried in the AHL. He showed flashes, but I don't think he ever would have been given the opportunity to really flourish under Torts. I am so hoping they don't break up that line - they are a threat every shift. If they cool off, then consider it, but that chemistry is rarely found. Leave it alone!

Agree totally with the six years - look at how the long-term contracts are handcuffing teams making moves. At least Brad Richards came off life support - Detroit is not only stuck w/Johan Franzen - the laziest hockey player ever - for 7 years, it came to light the other day they offered Filippula, their unproductive 2nd center, 7 years this past off season for reasons I cannot grasp!!! Hard to imagine a guy like that getting that kind of offer and the Rangers holding tight with Lundqvist, but they would be far smarter to hold to six. Those long terms have to go.

That pass by Zucc was breathtaking - it was like when he first made it, you didn't even realize the precision! And what a pleasure to hear Olczyk actually extol the Rangers! As a Detroiter and a fan of both the Wings and Rangers, anytime the Rangers want to give up Zucc would love to see him here in Detroit on a line with Pavel Datsyuk! Meantime, nice to see Zucc with wingers who can finish off his plays! They'd be nuts to mess with that line!
4 months ago on How About That Pass From Zuccarello?
@johnnyb3910 Yep - watched them against Toronto last night and they played an outstanding game. Dubi and Gaborik - and I can't believe I'm saying this about Gabby were all over the place and Anisimov came "this close" to a SHG. They're exciting and hungry and very fun to watch.

They have to catch Hertl to knock him on his ass - that kid is a baby Datsyuk!

If Brassard can get back to last year's form and Pouliot can finish, the way Zucc is playing, that line could be a real force! The guy is fearless.

Loved that line - great game! Love to see those three kept together!
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Pouliot Makes Good First Impression
Thrilled with this news. He came back seasoned with his skills enhanced. There were too many times his passes would go unreceived simply because the NYRs were not used to seeing that kind of quick reaction and precision passing. Hopefully now that they are used to him and rid of Torts system, he will shine in 2013-14. Glad you're back Zucc!

Somehow I can see the resistance to Ruff, but my personal favorite is really Guy Boucher.

I am not negating that, but the unfortunate thing is that with slight exception they played more like Richards than themselves.
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Players Are Reason For Torts Firing; Richards Healthy Scratch An Organizational Decision
@momentsfade Bravo. As a Detroiter who is devoted to both the Wings and Rangers, it was interesting to watch the respective playoff performances. As the Wings were on the brink of engineering a possible upset, I was struck by the difference in the 2 teams' talent levels. Their blue line has no McDonagh or Girardu on the blue line nor Stepan or Nash up front. But the heart was so strong, and I thought several times - is that why one team is still in and the other is not. And you stated it very well. And kind of in that same vein, for those wishing Gaborik back, can they really be sure he's not going to nap through shifts now??? The one thing between the 2 teams that is uncanny is the resemblance between Gabby and Franzen - so much talent that isn't matched in work ethic and heart. Can't underestimate its importance.
@SA24 @jazzgirl1414 Agreed. I am not opposed to Schoenfeld either - I'd give him a shot. Knows the personnel and some success in New Jersey behind him.
