You see Emelin in that clip!!! He got away with murder!! The other linesman should have threw him up against the board too right next to Carcillo since they both were doing the same thing!!
Good thing they grabbed Carcillo before he could watch any more of that fight. It could have gotten ugly
Must have been a French speaking linesman that grabbed Carcillo

You will not be the next head coach.... Goals and assists drop 50-90% automatically when putting on a blueshirt. Its a curse.
They should let fans in the locker room between periods and after the game. I guarantee there would be production after that.....
He is a me player.... The Columbus game and the few games after he was announced to the Canadian roster. Other than that, hes been worthless
If you can solve this, you will automatically become the head coach. I've been wondering this for years....

At least you didn't have to photoshop the bodies on Zucc and St Louis.
I just noticed the sign next to Crosby......

@AnnoyingJoe Lol.....Shouldn't they be all Penguins?
Make the Pens wear the CBJ jerseys and we'll get the real Nash.... He can up his game if he wants, we saw it in the CBJ game. He turned it on, now its off. Just like when he was announced to the Canadian Olympic team.... same thing. Maybe the Stanley cup isn't enough to up his game...
Jackets vs Rangers and Flyers vs Pens would have been better match ups. Yes, yes... the Rangers and Flyers have history but if your talking today rivalries, this seasons rivalries, past few years rivalries.... Those match ups would be a little more exciting.
Flyers and Pens want to kill each other every time they play and Rangers/Jackets have unsettled business on who made out in the deal. Especially after Nash playing like he did vs his former team......

Players would rather go to Russia before playing for the Devils......and do!!! They are desperate and would sign a monkey that could skate if it drew 20 more fans. Fact is, nobody wants to play for them...... Parise, Clarkson, Kovalchuk... even Fatty wanted to be traded this season.....

Hopefully St. Louis playing with Fast, a right handed shot, as was playing with Stamkos will make him a little....No, no ........A LOT more productive than he's been since coming here.....
Need a lefty at the point for one times unless you put Diaz in for Girardi. But they aren't going to change anything now. Its too late in the season....

Who are you guys voting for, for the Steven Macdonald extra effort award?
I'd like Zucc to get some recognition,... it may not be a "C" or an "A" on his jersey but he put up with a lot of crap from torts and he puts in more effort than guys twice his size every night and has proven all doubters wrong. What do you think about getting together to vote and get Zucc the recognition he deserves? What do you think Kevin? Rally the Troops!!!
Embarrassing trades and missed playoffs hasn't deterred him from leaving previously... why now? Dolan is happy and that's all that matters....
Nash is the new Gaborik. He plays just as soft, wrist shots from the blue line, and wont dare go into the middle of the ice.....
Been better off just keeping Gaborik and still had Dubi and Anisimov. Torts destroyed this team. Same as he's doing in Vancouver.
1 year ago on Nash Wants to Get Inside, But...
I did a quick search on him from a few websites and its as though he is more of a pure goal scorer with taking the body here and there, but he's no hard nosed power forward. Here is the best desciption that I think defines him from a website...
"Haggerty is viewed as a goal scorer with a lot of offensive potential
and a wicked release, but he’s not afraid to deliver a hit or take one,
1 year ago on Stralman Has Maintenance Day; Haggerty Joins Team; St. Louis Faces Music
Sounds promising... I just hope he's not another perimeter player. Actually I would be fine with that as long as the Rangers sign an ex-NFL linebacker to play on the 4th line...
Our own American Ovechkin.... Thats all I could think of watching him ripping those shots off from the off wing. Too bad as soon as he puts on a blueshirt his production will drop 95%.
Does he hit or is he just a sniper?

Oh yea... the miracle year he didn't get injured. I forgot about that....
I don't know about being most intelligent.... we just agree with one another more... Thats what this blog is about... agreeing to disagree. We all want whats best for the Rangers and each of us have an opinion, like you. We put value on players, argue what we think is best for the team but it all means squat. We are here to vent our frustrations and sometimes they get the best of us. We gang up on people with certain subjects but that's just us being passionate for the Rangers.
You are still a Ranger fan and always will be. So come back from being "deleted" because your still here and you are a Ranger fan. Come back with the rest of us Wannabe GM's , have fun and don't take things too seriously. Its all good fun even though you want to rip an occasional blogger through your screen. We've all been there.....

Really, the physicality is what we are lacking most.... basically a momentum changer. The center position is a close second.
When was the last time you heard an Avery roar from the crowd to get things going. Get a guy that just likes to take heads off and play his position solidly. Just one guy to get the crowd going, the players going and turn the momentum around when they are playing like %^$#, which has been quite often. We have NO ONE that fits that description on the team. We have centers that could obviously play better but no momentum changer.
Don't forget Dorsett... expendable as well...
Know whats funny, after that happened I immediately started thinking how their Thanksgiving was going to go...
1 year ago on Staal Wants Extension Done This Summer; Interest in Dorsett; Sabres/Panthers to Pursue Callahan
I'm not sure if anyone has seen a full game Cally has played with the Lightning but I saw some clips on NHL network of a few of his shifts and he looks 100% lost. Was not playing with any type of energy we are use to seeing and his positional play was very disorientating. He is still in major shock. I don't know how he didn't fire his agent yet.
I don't even think Florida has a slight chance in resigning him. He is going home
@Bueller @josh930 @Bring back Langdon
It also could mean he wants to make plans either in NY or Carolina in the off season if Sather doesn't give him what he wants and not deal with the stress of the trade deadline going to another team, missing out with family....
I just think he wants to know what Sather is going to do with him after seeing what Cally when through and whether Sather is willing to meet his demands because as we saw with Cally..... Its all up to what Sather wants and he has a price on every single players head and he rather find out sooner than later what the price of his head is......
No more lucrative contacts in NY..... Maybe players realize that now. It seems as though Sather is somehow gaining brain cells at his age.... I know... hard to imagine right?
@Bring back Langdon @josh930
Hmmm, I didn't hear about them trying to move Jordan. Thanks...
And theres one major thing Jordan and Eric have that Marc does not so that may ultimately keep him here....
And I love when him and Ovi got at it, although McD might have taken that job over....
I don't know. I think his intentions are going to Carolina.
How can you give up the opportunity to play with not 1 but all 4 of your brothers. Jordan Staal didn't end up in Carolina by accident. Winning the Stanley cup has about the same odds as playing with all 4 of your brothers and right now, one is more likely than the other for him. Putting myself in his shoes, and not looking at it as a Ranger fan, I'm going to play with my brothers. Just like we dream't of when we were kids playing in the backyard rink.
I like Staal and hope he signs for a decent contract but me personally, I would not pass up that opportunity.
@JoeNYR @AveryYesBettmanNo @scrangersfan
I still have hope for Macilrath. He has a huge frame and needs to control it properly. Hes putting on muscle every year.
Chara looked like a Basketball player who just stepped on skates when he came into the NHL. He was moved to how many teams before he was deemed a superstar. You think he ever would have left Ottawa if they knew he was a late bloomer. I think he was 25yrs old when he was noticeable.
Give Macilrath a little more time. He will get there....

I don't think its the players smoking weed...I think its the agents smoking crack....
Yea... I feel Stepan is just "there" .. not sure where to put him but a Brassard swap would look good. Plus, it may give Stepan a little wake up call instead of rewarding him by leaving him on the first line....
1 year ago on Rangers @ Hurricanes (Game 64)
I was writing my post when yours came up... I agree, someone needs to get swapped around....
I know the third line has been great this year but I feel that Kreider should be dropped to the second line, Hags to the third and Zucc to the first sooo..
They just seem more balanced this way. I know some may not play their natural position but there is too much fire power on the first line with no distributor.
How disrespectful and degrading of you calling them "smurfs'.... They are hobbits!!
1 year ago on Zuccarello to Likely Return; AV Says Defense Needs to Be Better; Callahan Hangover
Well I though for sure he was going to Buffalo, and still maybe, but he may just stay put with the lightning. I just don't think the lightning would pay him that either. Stevie Y knows what he's doing. He knew St.louis wanted out, Cally would be a rental, and he now has 2 high draft picks. So he has no problem letting Cally walk at the end of the season because we gave him 2 high draft picks for a player that wanted out of TB anyways.
Whatever the players are feeling, I bet you it's 10X worse for Cally. I think he knows he screwed up with a different patch on his jersey, the "C" ripped away from him, and surrounded by new faces. I know Stepan was the most upset so maybe we can figure out a deal in the off-season to reunite him with Cally!
@ajrap @gravey94 @EquusBiz
I really feel that players become cursed when coming to the Rangers. All production seems to diminish once they put on that blue jersey and I want to know why.
Guaranteed if Ovechkin came to the Rangers he would become a 20 goal scorer....

"Hi Mr. Macilrath, this is Mr.Opportunity knocking at your door. What if I told you you could play in the NHL tomorrow if you got your @$#% together!!"
Wristers from the blue line!!! Deja vu.... Sounds like Gaborik Batman....
I may start detaching from Staal right now because I doubt he is going to pass up playing with his brothers in the NHL.... all 3 brothers no less!! It all depends if he either wants a at a possible cup (which both of his brothers have) or playing with them. Honestly with the odds of winning a cup, I think I would choose the latter and fulfill at least one childhood dream of playing with all of my brothers on the same team just like they dreamt of in their back yard as kids.......

A no trade clause should not even be a demand. You get payed millions of dollars to play a game you love and your worried about the inconvenience in your life of not having "security" to stay in one spot. F-you!!
How about the average Joe who is worried about just keeping his job, and his house, and the inconvenience it may be to be thrown out on the street with his family without security? We average Joe's live without security everyday let alone not being millionaires.
So boo-hoo for you Cally that you didn't get "security".
His agent has to be on the chopping block....
