I hate Glass so much. He can't take a pass.

If the refs refuse to give a make up call, Zucc will make up for it.

@Hotfreak I don't think we're getting a regular call.

At the time I thought it was a mistake to fire Tortorella. It seemed like he was getting a mediocre team to play way beyond their level. Turns out he was just holding them back through an incredible unwillingness to adapt. I will say that I watched most of the Tort postgames, whereas I never watch AV's. Then again it's not a good thing when the press conference is more exciting than the game.

Every time Klein touches the puck I think he's gonna score.

@leftwingbarbara @Bleed_the_freak Last game Boyle took a shot from the point and missed badly and then started shaking his broken hand. I'm not sure how effective he can be right now.

This game should be out of reach for the Flyers right now. Instead they're only down one goal.

@kevin11 This game is not the best example of the Rangers playing to their strengths. Rangers were not ready for how badly Tampa wanted this game. I think the St. Louis thing really upset them. Stamkos in particular. He went to great lengths to make sure Callahan got his first goal of the night. Normally he would have shot it from there. That was like a fuck you. 

Not to mention Stralman and Boyle were probably pretty pissed.

How the hell didn't they call a penalty on Sutter?

@DP_Snotty I don't think they will get very much ice time. Fourth line normally starts most of the shifts in the defensive  zone. And Hayes is not exactly the guy you want taking face-offs there.

@McPhee37 @J_CKfor30 @ATCRyan Right now McIlrath doesn't seem to be doing any thinking whatsoever. I know where you stand on fighting, but McIlrath fought a guy when it could only possibly benefit the Blues and lost anyway. He was not protecting a teammate and the Rangers were dominating completely so it only slowed the game down and gave the Blues a boost. He has not shown an inkling of potential. A lot of guys need time to adjust, but you can still see what they might become. McIlrath just doesn't look good at all.

Thanks for the great blog all these years. Definitely  gonna miss your game recaps. It was amazing to read something that actually had personality on the internet. Anyways, enjoy all you're new time off. Drink in moderation. Remember its only a game. Yada, yada, yada. I shouldn't give advice I won't take myself.

Except for the first few games after he came here, I've never been very impressed with John Moore. The head shots are pretty upsetting. I wouldn't mind someone replacing him.

@TomDundie Are you Thomas Pynchon? I'm starting to think that maybe you're a genius. Like if Pychon were to have published Gravity's Rainbow in tiny sections on blog comment forums maybe it would look like this.

I love Klein. Despite the amount of goals he scores on his own goalie. Such a steal for Sather. Nice to see him get a big goal.

I think the Hagelin Moore Stempniak line has a lot of potential. Those are probably the three hardest working forwards on the team. The top two lines are weird. He's got both Nash and Zuccarello on their off-wings.

I wish someone would finish Hayes' brilliant passes. I also wish Hayes would stop taking the puck around the net on odd man rushes.

I am shocked that Kostka is not in the lineup tonight. In his first game as a Ranger he had two beautiful primary assists!

@Hotfreak @ATCRyan I think he looked absolutely terrible in the preseason, but really good in game one. Ironically everyone was on his case about not blocking that shot during the preseason, and then he did in a game 1…

@IhateGaborik @JoeyKocur It's hard to say that you wouldn't want Ovechkin on your team, but he is a really one dimensional player. Can you imagine him trying to become a center because of a void on the team? Wouldn't happen. I remember all the moaning and groaning when they put him on the opposite wing.

@gzulux @Say my Name Malone allowing Martin to push him repeatedly into the boards all the while grinning a shit grin was like vintage Avery. It warmed my heart.

@J_CKfor30 @Wallace1 Nobody foresaw MSL becoming a first line center when that contract was given. Also Jordan Staal was getting paid something similar as a third line center in Pittsburg. It's not without precedent.

@J_CKfor30 @Wallace1 Reunite the Zucc Brass third line with Malone or Hayes in Poop's position. I don't think AV is going to play Brass a certain way because of how much he's getting paid.

I'm for keeping MSL at center when Step comes back. He is seriously really good at that position and the best teams seem to have two top-line caliber centers.

I'm always for a big hit on Clarkson, but how did Glass not get a penalty on that? Also he almost killed his own teammate.

@McPhee37 @KevinMccarthy The fourth line last year got a lot of love. It helped that they could actually keep up with the pace of the game and relieve top line guys of a large workload.

I do think Malone should get into the lineup on Tuesday (and can't see why he won't after this loss) but maybe on the third line since he can actually score.

@J_CKfor30 @Bueller Didn't Klein play on the top pairing in Nashville? I think he can handle that role. Although maybe you want to move Moore up and pair Klein with Hunwick to make up for some defensive mistakes.
