Ok. Didnt know that...

While toughness on D is important and we certainly lack it, a tough winger who can play (Clowe could have been that guy??) has got to be top priority...if they stay in-house give Haley another shot--he may not score much but he hits, has good energy, skates decent and doesnt take any crap.
To me the bottom line is this team will play well against the softer, less physical teams and struggle against the big, tough teams (bruins, kings, ducks) Until they get bigger and nastier they can't win. period. . It's really that simple... Unfortunately, the management has NEVER realized this. Sather and his staff continue to underperform for the fan base ......13 years of his nonsense... No toughness. Wasted money on BAD free agents . No PP QB with a powerful shot. when does the revolt begin???
1 week, 4 days ago on Rangers 5, Canucks 2
Brian Leetch was the last D-man to effectively QB the PP on this team. Management has had almost 10 years to find a productive, PP QB with a hard accurate shot and above average passing skills. We are still waiting. How Sather has survived this long is mind boggling! I dont think any GM in any sport in the past 40-50 years has kept his job after 13 years of not producing a winner (at least I cant think of one) and personally I've had enough of him and his staff....
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Miller Sent to Hartford; Girardi Replaces Stepan on 1st PP Unit; Lundqvist Starts Again
Agree that they were awful on face-offs and that hurt, but I really dont think they took the "night off". Play was pretty even throughout with no huge edge either way. PP tried too hard to make the perfect play instead of taking shots and scrambling for rebounds.The one thing this team BADLY needs is a defenseman with a cannon shot (seems as if every team we play has one) who can QB the PP (sorry as good as McD is he is not that guy). PP will wallow in mediocrity without a PP captain with a cannon.....

@cranford93 @freebie23 My complaint was not about the goalie...every goalie gives up BAD goals..it was about the bloggers and responders who see him through rose colored glasses as if he could do no wrong..
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Rangers Fall Late to Devils 3-2
Lundquist is always treated with kid gloves. Lets call a spade a spade. Bad angle, short side goal=BAD goal, on him no one else..Now move on....
Maybe the kids got a little nasty edge to him that is ready to blossom. Wouldnt that be lovely.....

@gravey94 @freebie23 You got me..I didnt know who she was until now. She doesnt look like she gets pushed around!

Would love to take a chance on Drew Stafford--that guy has some talent, he is only 28 and has gotta be miserable in Buffalo. Biggest obstacle is likely the 4M contract.
1 month ago on Rangers Willing to Deal Del Zotto?
Hey Nash is the only real sniper we have and is sorely missed. My big disappointment with him is how light he is in the physical, toughness part of the game--a guy that big should not get pushed around the way he does. Wish he threw his body like Kevin Nash (wrestler) instead of Graham Nash ( CSN singer) !
Look I know there is a lot of Mashinter fans out there and he definitely is an adequate enforcer/banger, something the team desperately needs. However, as a hockey player the guy is awful--hes a deer looking into the headlights. Yes I know he scored a bit in the minors but he wont score more than 3-4 goals,10-15 points a year on a full time basis whether he plays 4 minutes a game or 40. I hope I am wrong but the guy looks lost to me.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Flyers 2, Rangers 1
While Sather may have gotten the lions share of "steals" when trading with other teams, he has been horrible signing players via free agency, unable to find the right coach, been average at the draft table and has had 13 years to build a winner!! How much more slack does this guy get??
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Man, This Moore Guy Can Fight
Think you are spot -on with the analysis of the D. When Stepan returns, Boyle should play wing (think he is better there anyway-less ice to cover) and my gut tells me Haley makes the cut (possibly over Pyatt?) They may also give Kristo a look for a spell.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Projecting The Rangers Opening Night Roster
Tend to agree with award--would love to see the bigger guys on the team play a bit nastier (Nash, Boyle, Pyatt, Kreider to name a few)and start sticking up for themselves and their teammates. They dont necessarily have to become fighters just start giving back as much as they take. Hit at least as much as you get hit.
