@FREE LINDBERG @nyr94 AND.. all star appearances aren't necessarily a great barometer, and championships don't really have the same pull in baseball as they do in other sports (IMO)...I think the yanks win the same amount of WS with or without him.

@FREE LINDBERG @nyr94 See what I mean?HAll of Famer, yes (compiler)..top 25 in history - not a chance..
@FREE LINDBERG Jeter is , by far, the most overrated player of all time. Excellent, great player, yes...but Yankee fans think he is BAbe Ruth re-incarnated. I have always said, if Rey Ordonez came up with the Yanks instead of the MEts, Yankee fans would be calling him a "winner" and he has all the "intangibles".... Not hard to be a "winner" on those teams!
With that said, he is a hall of famed and a great player.. still overrated by ridiculous Yankee fans.
@shoot_the_goalie yes and yes. Goalies are easier replaced versus MVP players. Dont beleive all the talk about Ovie.. that guy scares me every time he has the puck. I would shake Hank's hand and wish him luck and take my chances with Ovi Step Nash and Tim Thomas in goal!
@scrangersfan No, Zuc is not a keeper... Ive said it before and Ill ask it again. We have SEVEN guys for top two lines right now:
Ritchie, Hags, Cally, Step, Nash, kreider, brass
Which TWO come out for Zuc? HE has a big heart and I like him, but he is not a 3rd line player and there is no spot for him. 2 way contract or hit the road

@FREE LINDBERG @mach1speed460 Zuc is a waste of money.. Big heart, but no finishing skills and he is too small to play in the corners. Right now we have SEVEN top 6 forward (HAgs, ritchie, hags, cally, step, brass, krieder).. which 2 do you take out to put Zuc in? Need the $$, dont sign him
5 months, 1 week ago on Rangers to Extend Qualifying Offers to Stepan, McDonagh, Hagelin & Zuccarello
I am OK with this provided we get some grit and size in return. I think we would be nuts to trade MDZ.. I think he had a horrible year, but who replaces him in the line up? As bad as he was in the playoffs last year, there was nobody to take his place so he just stayed out there. Unless someone overpays, I say hold on to him and hope he regains his form from 2012. Ill say it again, we need to let Zuc go and use his money for a role player. He has no spot in top 6 and has no finishing skills (big heart yes, but we need big bodies).
5 months, 1 week ago on Rangers Shopping Miller?
@FREE LINDBERG Sure.. I am sure Carolina will do that deal.. I wish I had your optimism!
This should upset some of you, but why in the hell would we sign Zuc given our cap situation? With the kids (Krieder and maybe Miller) and all this talk about being soft, why would we sign a completely undersized player with a big heart but little skill and nearly zero finishing prowess? Ritchie, Nash, Cally, HAgs, Step, Krieder, Brassard..Without Zuc, thats 7 forwards for the top 6.. which TWO do you remove to make room for this guy? I love his heart, but we need every penny and cannot afford a shootout specialist right now.
5 months, 1 week ago on Rangers Not Buying Out Richards
@cb1 In what dream land do you think we will get a 3rd rounder for Pyatt?
@KevinDeLury @Murdoch Im on a macbok and a mac mini.. no issues at all. What are you on a G4 or something?
5 months, 1 week ago on Rangers Could Be Waiting on Buyout Pool Before Making Decision on Richards
@Josh6 yea right, and he will never ever spurn Neil Smith and sign with the Canucks either.. oh wait.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Vigneault Is the Guy
@mlsranger @nyr94 True.. and if I knew for sure, Id be GM! What makes you think he cannot inspire the team? He has certainly earned a long leash with the players just showing up in the room. Im thinking he will be smart enough to learn from his mistakes. The man learned how to win, learned how to lead men (in the locker room too) and has been a winner every where he has gone (Vancouver aside). I dont think its a given, but Im not against giving him the shot at this point. That said, Im also good with AV or a more experienced guy..Im just saying I feel better than I did at first is all.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Messier Interviewed; Stevens Next
I originally felt the same as many of you on Mess and the HC job... dont tarnish his rep, he has no experience, etc..
However, after much thought, I am now pro-mess as the next head coach. I think we have a decent team (better than avg for sure) which is actually beneficial for a new coach (see Gretz in AZ to see what happens when you put a rookie HC and young inexperienced team together). I for one, think the HC is over-rated a bit anyway. It matters, sure.. but what matters most is player production on the ice. I dont think our guys will forget to play because mess is here. I DO think the HC matters in terms of the room and mentality of the team, and I think Mess can only help in that regard. So I say, bring him on, and maybe ask Shonfeld to be his assistant so he has some guidance in the x's and o's dept.
I dont think he makes the team worse and imagine the upside! I dont think Mess is one to be scared to tarnish his image.. if he was, he wouldnt be HC material anyway.
