love hockey, I'd been a rangers fan since 1965 and gone through a lot of disappointments. Moved to South Caroline after I retired in 2001 hence the name scrangersfan. I love this blog site,allows me to vent my frustrtions with other Rangers fans.
@JoeyKocur Just for the record Joey, Hagelin and Kreider will fly with the Habs like no-one else can.

@fs2020 I honestly believe that if Prust and Glass will square off, Prust will have his head handed to him by Glass. And do hope that it will happen early in the game.

While I vehemently disagree with you on Duclair being the most dynamic player on the Rangers this season, IMO. he did not embarrass himself on the ice but he was ions away from dynamic. I do agree with him being in the lineup against Montreal if only because he is native of that city. It just show you the class of AV to understand and be thoughtful enough to put the kid in the lineup knowing how important to Duclair to play against his former idols. Besides, Malone did not exactly set a world on fire while playing.

@TomDundie Wow Tom, you gave me a splitting head-ache. LOL.
IMO. The acquisition of AV was the very best by the Rangers since Mike Keenan in '93. The guy is a solid tactician and a true gentleman to boot.
@JoeyKocur After these comments, there is nothing left to say. I agree with you Joey.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @J_CKfor30 @TomDundie IMO. Juniors is the answer.
@leftwingbarbara @scrangersfan Again, I agree. They need our support, it lift's them up as well as the quality of their play.

@BleedingBlue @scrangersfan I'll reserve my judgement on Kostka after he plays the next game. Until then, I feel he deserve the chance to redeem himself. If he plays lousy then I will agree with you.
@leftwingbarbara I agree with you Barbara.
@BleedingBlue @scrangersfan I guess you're correct, I' v been watching hockey for only 50 years so what the F--k do I know. For the record, I was not talking about fill in. I was stating that if you think Girardi as so bad then Staal should be and should have been on the first line all along not Girardi. Then again I guess I have no right to my opinion, so please except my apologies.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @BleedingBlue Who do you mean Kevin, Girardi or Kostka, If you mean Girardi then I think you're a little bit too though on him.
@BleedingBlue If he is so bad as you say, then why is he on the first line? why isn't Staal on the first line? or maybe you think he is bad also?
@genetics73 @LennoxHillMarketing @Cally11 Though I'm not a huge fan of Girardi, I would take him over Boyle in a heart beet. I would like to see Girardi be more physical but the fact is not all good players are Physical. Case in point, Brian leatch. He was not known for his physicality but IMO. he was the best D man in Rangers history. Harry Howell is another one comes to mind.
@IhaveawaiteratMSG OK. Torts, you had your say.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @KevinMccarthy Why doesn't he work on his skating during the off season with that Underwood lady? It would be to his benefit to put in the time to improve his skating ability. If you can't skate, you can not play in the NHL.
@ShreddyMercury You're just superstitious, the number means nothing it is the player who is wearing it determine how good/bad it is.
@Say my Name @gravey94 @RangersAndRadio For what it's worth, IMO if Nash was producing in the playoffs like he is now, the outcome would have been the Rangers in 5 instead LA. So I don't think we are that far away, just a little tweaking here and there and we're there.

@SmellyKisio Forget about Duclair,after 10 games he'll be back at Juniors where he belongs. He need more seasoning before he is ready for the majors. Team have plenty of forwards, no need to rush him. Maybe next year or the year after.

St Louis and Kreaider should be switched. That would keep the chemistry between Nash and STL. and would add size to the Beassard line.

@rangermom @ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat You have got to be kidding right? Carcillo over Glass? that is totally insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!l

Instead Glass, my choice to come out of the lineup would be Duclair. I think as I have all along that the kid need's more seasoning and maturing before he is ready to compete against man. I do think though that in time the guy is going to be a very good NHL player but in the short term, he would be better off playing back in the juniors.
@IcyCup @I Am Sean's Ruptured Spleen So what's your point? Aren't they in poor form every season?
@Say my Name @Zelrio Hope you don't confuse him with SCRANGERS1 I have some pride you know!
@Say my Name You are a withiest dude on this blog SMN, barring none. LMOA.
@TomDundie @IcyCup Hey Tom, it is without a doubt that he will have to fight through some dry spells like all other snipers do but for me, I will keep supporting the guy as long as he works his butt off and hustles.
@IcyCup I was as critical of him as anyone last year but now, it looks like the guy is a proud athlete who realized that he did not performed to expectations and did something about during the off season and now his hard work is paying dividends I respect the guy for that and wish him nothing but the best.
@IcyCup So do I. I think he should be working with Sam on TV regularly, the guy is awesome.
@ATCRyan Unfortunately,NY Rangers hockey usually is to make the apposing goalie look like a vezina candidate. At least the last couple years anyway. We need a couple of real snipers who can put the puck in the net like Nash is so far this year.
@ktc990 @dylonergan I don't think so, I was watching the MSG feed on Direct TV and I had no problem at all.
@Billfrom Brookhaven @TomDundie Just think, yesterday some guy wanted to include Zucc. in a trade for a D man on the blog. Is it stupid or what? IMO. Zucc is in the top four most important player on the team.
@Craptin McDonqvist Have no fear, my son was a yankees fan fan until he was ten, then I took him to a Mets game and from then he became a Met's fan. So hang in there, there is hope on the horizon.

@johnnyb3910 Leetch, there is a familiar name. I wonder if he would be willing to lace them up for one more year. I'll bet he would still be good enough to be a top 4 D- man.
@ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat OK I get it Kostka- Costco
@ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat Where did that comment came from?
@Hoserhey @Purinton You will not be blasted by this blogger because I agree with every word you'd posted.
@Craptin McDonqvist I hope that you and your son will have a great time. No better way to bond with your son then at a Rangers game. I should know, I used to take my son when he was 5 years old and now he's also a great fan. That was 36 years ago. Now he takes me to ECHL hockey games in Charleston and we still have blast. So enjoy it friend !
@gravey94 @DP_Snotty Maybe we get lucky and trade them for Stralman. I would jump all over that trade!
@gravey94 That's what we need, another defense man with no grit. Why don't we just trade Girardi for him even up. LOL.
@JMK8363 @scrangersfan @rangersfan You're correct, I forgot about that.

@JMK8363 @scrangersfan @ktc990 Agree with you but then what is our option?
@rangersfan If you trade Zucc the hardest player on the team who is the spark plug of the team than I must say that you're insane. There are a number of other players on the team who is less important to their success the Zucc.
@KevinTheNYRBlog @TomDundie @Zombieoni Agreed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@Zombieoni That's easy to answer, Sather love's to sign over the hill has been players (Boyle) over younger and still improving players like Straalman. I just hope that he is not going to make the same mistake by letting Staal get away and sign someone who had seen his better days with more money then Staal is asking for.
@ktc990 IMO. staal deserve to earn more than Girardi who in the kast two years have not played to expectation. I hope Sather will realize that in order to keep Staal, he need to sign him to a bigger contract then Girardi. I'm rooting for staal to get what he is asking.
@Iron Mike You got that right!
