@Bring back Langdon Sorry Sather IS the poor schmuck GM. Has been for 14 yrs. Biggest mistake in Ranger history (besides Middleton for Hodge) was Sather instead of J.D.
5 days, 1 hour ago on Rangers Decline Callahan's Six-Year, $6.3 Million Per Year Proposal
@shoot_the_goalie @freebie23According to" reports," at least two teams are willing to fork over more than the Rangers have offered when he becomes a UFA.
5 days, 4 hours ago on Rangers Decline Callahan's Six-Year, $6.3 Million Per Year Proposal
Ryan Callahan has seen Gomez, Redden, Nash and Richards all get paid more money than he has ever made yet not one of those guys has an all-around game as good as Callahan--I dont blame him for wanting to be in that neighborhood (he's not asking for the same boatload they gave Richards) and he's seen too many underachieving, lazy-ass fat cats go through and he wants to get paid. If every one that complains how selfish he is was in the same shoes they'd want to get paid too. The guy breaks his balls day in and day out and watches a guy like Richards avoid contact playing hockey and coast when he doesn't feel like playing. He sees 6'4" Rick Nash avoid going to the front of the net...sorry but I'd rather have 12 forwards like Callahan than 12 like Nash or Richards. If the Rangers dont want to pay him, so be it--it's not his fault they overspent on the marquee names who don't play physical. playoff hockey.
@nasoov @BuellerJersey sales?? Cmon ..hockey skills--lets see--he plays on PK, PP, chips in on score sheet, blocks shots, hits guys twice his size regularly and stickhandles pretty well. Does any other Ranger forward do all that?? I also agree with the economics point and its not his fault the team doesnt have the cap space to afford his market value. He didnt make them overspend on Redden, Nash , Richards, ....
5 days, 21 hours ago on Callahan Softening on Contract Demands?; Rangers Talk Hemsky
Maybe Callahan doesn't have the stats of a Nash or Richards but if Im forking out several hundred to sit and watch rangers hockey I know hes the one guy not likely to take the night off. I've seen a "no-show" plenty of times from Richards and Nash.
5 days, 23 hours ago on Callahan Softening on Contract Demands?; Rangers Talk Hemsky
Many comments here support keeping Callahan through this season even though he likely walks, getting nothing in return. I love the guy, but doing that is just plain stupid. You cant let a player of his caliber walk without getting something in return while you can.
1 month ago on Callahan/Rangers Still Not Closer To Deal After Both Sides Talk
@shoot_the_goalieThe big mistake was not hiring JD 14 years ago.....
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Blues 2, Rangers 1
The time to make deals IS when the team is rolling and I would most definitely make changes on the blueline. My wish list--a guy with some snarl who can move opponents out of the crease and a right hander with a nasty slap shot.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Rangers Scouting, Being Scouted
Aside from Staal and Krieder, Sather hasnt done well with first round picks...
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Rangers Telling Teams They're Not Moving Girardi; Callahan Could Be Traded
Id rather see Haley instead of Dorsett. Haley is bigger, stronger on the puck and can actually win a scrap. Offensively, I think they are the same player..I like that 4th line idea...D. Moore has done nothing special to impress me either
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Kristo Scores, Miller Pointless In Wolfpack Loss
@mando24179My original point was that DS and DB are underachieving badly. If you cant see that we arent watching the same game
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Rangers 3, Stars 2 (Miller Sent Back to Hartford)
@mando24179I panned Stepan, too..You cant rely completely on PP...Ranger centers have a total of 20 even strength goals in 46 games...that sucks!!
Brassard may have the "magic" on the PP but 5 on 5 he has been dreadful..Two even strength goals in 45 games! He and Stepan have 7 even strength goals between them!! Why not let Miller play a bit and sit these two underachievers (they are too comfortable!)...maybe they get their heads out of their asses
Boyle raises his game and plays big when the ice gets small (playoffs)
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Boyle Proving His Worth
Of all the choices given here Franson is the best one. He's got an above-average slap from the point, QB's the PP and he's a right hand shot, something the team needs on D (as was pointed out)...he is also a little better defensively than Gardiner, at least in the games I have seen..
2 months, 2 weeks ago on RUMOR: Rangers Still Shopping Del Zotto ; Leafs and Senators Interested
The problem with getting draft picks is having the same nitwit making those picks!!
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Staal Doing Well, Still No Timetable
JD please come home!
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Rangers vs. Blue Jackets (Game 33)
I live in a different part of the country and need NHL package to watch nyr. When I can't get MSG feed and listen to Sam (I don't care much for michelitti ) I mute it.
JD said he'd go in for third period so the Rangers would have a slight chance to score ( just for Sam)
Loved the big whistle!
