Don't underestimate the amount a player can be coached up and taught new things. Think back to last season, can you name a player that was absolutely terrible possession wise?( not counting the early season debacle) look for AV to teach all the new guys, as well as old how to play his possession style and how to play it correctly.

So the redden buyout was a bad idea in your eyes?
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/
You might be right on Stepan, but he certainly isn't a fourth line player. Right now Boyle is playing the role of Brandon prust a few years back, he was so irreplaceable but look at him now. If Boyle lowers his demands a little to stay in New York absolutely keep him, but he certainly isn't irreplaceable, not many players are. If you overpay on Boyle you hurt the team, he's a role player he should understand that. He's also demanding third line minutes, the team suffers with him anyplace but the 4th line and PK. Sure plug him in the PP to camp the net. But third line minutes is crazy
That 7 year thing is insane though, right?
You think he's ready for the big show? It's a huge difference

Nash isn't going anywhere people. We are much better off hoping he can turn it around. I supported him all year, but unlike most people I'll admit he had a disappointing playoffs. But I have to give credit where credit is due. Besides the s intangibles we always talks about there was quite a few times I said wow what a play Nash, and it ended up coming up huge. Now is that worth his superstar contract? Not at all. But AT LEAST he wasn't completely lost on his feet

I gotta say. I found this blog mid season the year we lost to the devils in the ECF. Since then I'm on it constantly. It's in my favorites and recently searched in all my computers and cell phones including work. The info I get on here makes my friends think I have some secret connection. So thanks for that. Like most of you guys I'm heartbroken, but extremely proud of this team. When that goal went in my heart stopped. I'm already looking forward to next season. Which luckily since we played so much, isn't that far away

Puck luck is not oh they scored 3 goals we scored none. Puck luck is the difference between hitting a post and having it go in, and hitting a post and having it bounce away harmlessly. It exists, it cannot be used as an excuse but it certainly exists. The puck takes some strange bounces sometimes. Ya just never know
So by your logic every player should score on every shot? It's not gonna happen. I also gather you never played a second of hockey in your life. Because if you did you'd realize capitalizing on those chances in the heat of things isn't as easy as you think

Call me crazy, but I think the fact that not many people are giving the rangers a real shot is the best thing to happen to them. This team thrives on adversity, I would love to see them prove everyone wrong

So an open ice hit was more dangerous than going face first into the boards? Do you understand life?

I've been saying it all along. The guy is making a difference. Besides the fact he's hit every post possible 200 times he's got quite a few points like you mentioned. And he's done a ton that's not on the stat sheet. His defensive play has been huge , I've seen him make some really good plays at crucial times . And of course as step pointed out he's opening up space for his line mates.

It's an interesting debate. I love Marty always have. But he's stated he wants to play beyond this current contract, presumably with the rangers. Do you strip the C from him after that point and give it to MCD? Or do you make MCD wait, and at that point is it too late in his career?( doubtful) in an ideal situation the both get letters ( one C one A ) it's just the order of which that can be debated
Marty gave this team the spark they needed. The courage he showed getting on the ice less than 24 hours after his mom passing really rallied the boys. This is a totally different team now, and I have to say its a very pleasant surprise. Can it just be game time already? I have chills just thinking about it. LETS GO RANGERS!!!

If you watch any of the episodes of beginning it's almost very high praise for mom (and dad). But mom is really the center of attention.
Actually had some idiot in a talbot jersey try to rip me a new one in front of hundreds of people for wearing a hank jersey. His arguments were completely irrational, almost comical. I'll be the first to admit at times hank gets by on his name, but he sure as hell earned that name.
As a season ticket holder, I've been to a ton of games. I've never experienced anything like last night. The pure emotion from the very start was amazing. I was at game 7 and last night made that look like an AHL exhibition game. That being said, the resiliency and team approach this team showed recently mirrors that of the 2012 team. I still get chills thinking about how that place erupted for Marty. Lets get this thing done tmrw night boys!!! LETS GO RANGERS!!!
PS: was someone cutting onions last night? I felt myself getting a little teary eyed
I'm the type of person that would use sports as an escape but I cannot imagine being in MSL's shoes right now. I can't see him deciding to play, but if he does I can definitely understand why. My condolences to him and his family, hopefully the boys pull one out for him tonight.

I really want Nash to do well, and I'm just as frustrated he's not than anyone else. But all this negativity doesn't help. In the big picture constantly putting him down is just making it harder to pick himself back up. We all know what Nash can do, and he's not right now. But neither is anyone else. If we all truly love this team we should want them to do well. This is why we should support Nash and as fans try and get him scoring. If Nash does well so does the team. You would be surprised what a little support could do for a player. We already know confidence is HUGE in hockey. These guys are gripping the sticks extra tight and it's showing.And a lot of people on here claim to support the team but have already given up, and expect the players not too. Sure they get paid, but they're human also. Succeeding is a lot easier with a crowd behind you, as opposed to trying to win a game as your own fans bash you.
I love callahan, but is he on drugs?

How come nobody brought up the part where he takes the routine save and tries to make it look dramatic. Leaving him out of place and occasionally he even lets a few in. He needs to go back to the basics and stick with them

not worried. The open offense is going to open up more chances for other guys besides our top goal scorers. If they each contribute a few more than normal thatll make up for it. Well be fine. Remember we only have to score 1 more than the other guys, and with Lundqvist in net, we might only have to score one

Although peds are illegal and unfair in terms of muscle growth, they still dot help you hit a bAseball,score a goal or a touchdown. To reference baseball I don't believe Peds made Ryan Braun what he is, I think he was a very talented player who got caught up in the mess

@FREE LINDBERG how long did it take you to finally get season tickets? i put a deposit down about a month ago. I recently spoke to my ticket rep and he says it appears theres no open seats available. he seemed pretty confident that he could get me a half season plan to start with. does starting with a half season boost my chances at all?Do you think ill be able to get a full season plan the year after?

If the rangers do trade MDZ or Boyle or anyone else previously mentioned. Who do they trade them for? If no specific names are they prospects? Grit? Scoring etc etc
Just playing devils advocate here , every GM has their hits and every GM has their misses. It comes with the territory

There was 2 reasons IMO why they didn't buy Richards out A who do you replace him with and B if he comes back like he did two years ago for another team then what . Plus it would cost just as much if not more to replicate what he's capable of

richards apparently showed up this season really out of shape and look at this results. This is pretty good news if you ask me
1 year ago on Richards Already Focusing on Next Season
@MikeBlue theyre trying to get deeper at defenseman, trading staal would do the opposite
as soon as i heard they were not buying out richards i thought something was up. Either some teams showed some interest and hes trade bait or there was some sort of issue that hindered his play this year( unlikely) even though its a stretch. Richards was a pretty good player two years ago maybe last year was a lockout shortened fluke season?
