I was at that terrible 5-3 loss, I think I need to go on Wednesday to witness the revenge
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Rangers 7, Devils 3
girardi and cally for the sedins maybe throw in mdz, or a sandwich, whichever they prefer
7 months, 1 week ago on Predators 3, Rangers 1 (Callahan Out 4-6 Weeks)
definitely going to agree with you about the free agents, but i think Boyle will be back. I would definitely want to see both Girardi and Stralman back in blue.

so close to pyatt being gone, i must say im pleasantly surprised with how Dorsett has stepped it up since the start of the season taking all those stupid penalties

Hank and mdz for sedins?

Really? Was Renney the one who got us a Stanley cup? No. He got us to the second round of the playoffs. Torts got us to the ECF and almost to the finals. Please keep the ignorance to yourself

Two things I took way from the gme, Talbot gets the start indefinitely at Montreal and del zotto can officially be traded for an bag of pucks and I would be OK with it

Ghostbusters is potentially the most NYC thing ever, Seinfeld is probably the only thing that competes
even if mcilrath comes up and does make mistakes, i doubt it would be more mistakes than mdz so any way you look at it i think it would be an upgrade. del zotto isnt scoring and hes not defending but he is letting the puck get by him at the point probably 90% of the time. mcilrath might not score all the time but im sure hes gonna defend at least a little bit, and anyone who screws with our players would get their asses beat by someone bigger than dorsett and zucc. I say bring him up

I think anyone who delivers a hit that gives another player a concussion they should be out without pay until a NHL doctor clears the injured player to play, that way you don't have to worry about teams holding players out

The players looked like they just didnt want to be out there anymore after the third goal was scored. It was like 20 pylons, Richards and zucc on the ice. They gotta get their shit together, hopefully this serves as a wake up call and they come out a better team
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers Have Closed Door Meeting; Off Today
I spotted Asham fight! And I also saw an improvement in mdz. Pylon was pretty solid too. That kings goal still ha me a little confused, idk if they didn't know he was right there ready to snatch the puck but that was definitely the wrong 15seconds to get lazy
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers 3, Kings 1
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Callahan Back on Monday, to Play On Third Line; Fast Out
If you ask me millers hammy issues are a sign of him being too lazy in the off season and not hitting the gym and skating. Everything else is good news but the only real good news im waiting for is seeing Step on the ice
10 months, 1 week ago on Brassard/Arniel Best Buds; Miller Tweaks Hamstring Again; Biron Competition
@lennynyr @IcyCup how is he a greedy bastard? Wanting to get paid the way you deserve to be paid isnt greed. It's looking out for himself and his family if he decides to have one. Labeling Stepan as greedy is just unfair. Especially when all it takes is one hit and you can get an injury that wouldnt let him play at the level hes capable of playing for the rest of his career or possibly end it

I think hags is gonna start to finish once he gets some more time with legit offensive coaching, so I'd say in the next year or so he's gonna be real dangerous
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Hagelin's Shoulder Rehab Progressing
We nay not light it up, but we will score more than we have been with a coach who neglected offense and the power play. And Hank will be up to his usual thing and that will put us on the winning side of all the close games which is most of them

What frustrates me most about mdz is that he can't ever seem be able to stop the puck from leaving the offensive zone, no matter how slow its moving. But he needs time to develop and I think under av and ulf he's gonna be just fine

Kevin, I'm pretty sure that the last row is the 79$ ticket. But who puts two similar shades of blue on a color coded seat chart? Any way you slice it the price of tickets are too damn high!

@AG_Blue outside of being a big body what trick does he have?

the comment about your backhand winner just reminded me of something that seriously annoyed me throughout the whole season. I cant really remember that many backhanded goals from the Rangers, or even backhand shots in general. Constantly going forehand makes things so much more predictable for opposing goaltenders.

12 months ago on A Year Later Nash Trade Not So Lopsided
@Lordstanleybroadway if I had to guess CBJ probably wanted something along the lines of stepan, dubi and most likely mdz with probably a pick or a prospect, and to that and anything even close to it I say hell no
@Lordstanleybroadway im not so sure, if you think the Nash traded gutted the Rangers identity this past season we wouldve lost a lot more to get Nash in 2012 and the chemistry of the whole team wouldve been thrown out of whack. All we needed in 2012 to bring Stanley home was health, most notably a healthy Gaborik. something tells me the scorpion save (makes me cry inside everytime i say those two words together) wouldnt have happened if Gabby actually had a shoulder to use.
@Lordstanleybroadway that nash trade wouldve costed the team just about everything at the trade deadline in 2012
I definitely think the Rangers came out on top in this one. I dont think that Nash ever really wanted to be the center of an organization, its a lot of pressure to be expected of one person on a terrible team to deliver results so I really think Nash was just getting tired of it all.
I would like to believe that with an actual off season and the long road trip to start things off the chemistry will be there unlike the start of last season where they for the most part looked completely lost and out of sync. The Rangers do have a lot of young talent and I really believe that AV is gonna get 100% from all his players, and as we saw in the 2012 season when the Rangers give 100% good things happen.
But I guess we all gotta wait and find out who really comes out on top with this one. I dont think any team really got shafted since everyone got some solid additions to their team.
@Cup4NYR thats a rough start to the season but the end will make up for it. but i really hope that last game @mtl isnt going to be an important one

1 year ago on "NHL94 Comback" Open Thread: 7/12/13
One downside would be all the 2 min minors he would get for elbows to the face...I had to say it
Favorite is lundqvist
Least favorite is definitely asham, if he'd at least fight like he was supposed to then it would be hamrlik
I have a feeling that either Boyle or Pyatt are gonna get moved next week, personally I much rather see pyatt gone. I think the biggest difference between the two is that Boyle can win face offs, both of them didn't exactly light it up or anything but I suppose Pyatt did do a lot of the scoring in the first 10 games, I don't think that's enough to keep him around and with Rask getting 7mil a year we need all the cap space we can get. On a side note I really don't want to see MDZ go, there is way too much upside to just let him go so young
I just wonder why i haven't joined sooner
Been reading the blog for a long time now but never got around to posting for some reason but now here I am. Just wanna start off saying 94' was the best year of my life, obviously because the Rangers won it all and NHL '94 was perhaps the greatest sports game ever made. (My life peaked when I was 5 years 6 months and 1 day old) you guys think the Rick Nash vs Marc-Andre Fleury move will be an automatic goal every time like it used to be? Of course I mean skating up the right wing and cutting across the front of the goalie to put it in, God that goal was Nashty.
