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.
Your spot on, I rather have a player who's getting 5 mills and can produce in the playoffs then have one who is paid 7.8 and stink up the ice for the last two years in the playoffs. ( hint, his initials are RN.)

@Pantheon @ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun Brassard have been in the league 8 years,how many years do you think it takes a player to reach his potential?
@bmurphy6832 I'll reserve judgment until we're well into the season. Games played on the ice, not on paper.
@Josh-CK I agree with you for the most part but you are wrong in your assessment of Boyle vs. Strahlman. Boyle is a 39 year old man who struggled last year and he was just a shell of his former self, while Strahlman was getting better as the season went by and IMO he will get even better as time goes on. They should have signed Strahlman and stayed away from Boyle and the coming season will prove me right.

We already have at least two guys with superior skating ability namely Haglin and Kreider. Why not utilize them on the power play.
@SmellyKisio IMO. Girardi should not wear an A. I keep thinking of him standing by while Carcillo was beating the crap out of Gaborik. I can never forgive him for that. Strip the letter off him and give it to St Louis with McDonaugh as the C.

@EMoney2413 @Herman_NYRBlog It shows that he maybe small in stature but he maybe a giant in the bedroom. LOL.

@saintstryfe @Herman_NYRBlog It shows that he is clean and neat. It also shows that to live in Manhattan,even if you make 1.15 mills a year you still can't afford a cleaning service.
@IcyCup @scrangersfan @gravey94 agreed!
@pkh33 @KevinTheNYRBlog @Herman_NYRBlog Lundqvist was also in pantyhose. LOL. just kidding.
@SmellyKisio He is deciding with he's heart, not with greed and we all know that there are plenty of those guys around. Hate to say it but Kelly is among tem.
@gravey94 Aren't you glad that you were wrong tough? I love it when I'm proven wrong when I knock a player on the Rangers.
@DruBreezay I'm right there with you DruBreezay!
@Bring back Langdon I agree, saw it posted on a number of occasions.
@PacNYR44 I think you're thinking about Obama signing documents, he is using expensive pens. ( paid by the taxpayers.)
@Bring back Langdon My son sent me a video of Tanner Glass fighting in the AHL and he got destroyed, so I'm not sure he's got good hands for fighting. I think They should sign Carcillo just in case.
The guy Is my hero! I just wish every player had the same attitude when it comes to loyalty toward their clubs. I predict that Zucc will be the fans favored in the Garden next year. He will be mine for sure.
@Bring back Langdon Fat fingers, I can relate to that. LOL. Look, I hope I'm wrong but to me, the guy just haven't showed enough in the playoffs to warrant the 7.8 million a year he is paid. For that kind of money the guy should play like a beast and he has not. Also, for the guy 6'4shuld be playing much more physical then he does, he should at least play like Pouliot played in the playoffs make his presence felt along the boards and in the corners. I realize that he had a concussion and he is gun shy but there are other players who had the same injury and managed to overcome it, like Staal, Crosby to name a couple.
Let's hope that he'll manage to put up better numbers in future playoffs but if he doesn't then I'm afraid we'll have another Gomes on our hands.
@Bring back Langdon @scrangersfan @ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun You are incorrect, Nash had 26 goals last year not 36 and we all know how bad he stunk in the playoffs. IMO. the guy is just not mentally though and I'll be surprised if he'll change in the future, but I hope I'm wrong.

@Ticklemetikanen10 But they did broke up the Chemistry when they let Pouliot walk.

@MikeBlue @genetics73 @Josh-CK @JMK836 Why not trade Mark Staal for Skinner? that would be a great trade for the Rangers, getting a goal scorer for a Shut down D-man. Everybody would be happy.
@ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun He's still have an albatross around his neck named NASH!!!
@Bring back Langdon @IcyCup All I can say is that Zucc better not bend down in the shower in front of Sather because he will definitely get the shaft up the a-s. I wouldn't trust Sather as far as I can through his fat ass. Zuccarello have been more then fair in his negotiations with the Rangers and it is time he gets what he deserves.
@betweentheworlds If Brassard gets 5.5 mills then Zuccarello should sign next year for around 6.00 mills long term. Brassard did come into his own last year but he never be is good as Zucc. and time will prove me right.

@nasoov Agreed, Zucc should get the most money among the 3 arbitration candidates. That is a no- brainer.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @scrangersfan Nice to be young with a lot of stamina. I can't sleep at night because I'm old.

Hey Kevin, don't you ever sleep? I noticed that you posted this article @1:43 this morning.
By the way, Miller can easily replace Pouliot, all he have to do is commit a few stupid penalties at crucial times in the game. Seriously, given the chance to play regularly, I'm confident that Miller will equal ore even surpass Plouliot's output for the upcoming season.
@G If he'll have an other down season, by next season they may not be able to trade Nash for a bag of pucks and a roll of tape.

@RangersAndRadio Make that Girardi instead Staal and you got a deal.
@Say my Name Me too and boo him if he doesn't get his act together. ( Nash + 40 goals in 14/15 or bust.) Or am I just dreaming ?
How about Nash and Girardi for Kane and a 3rd round pick?
@stevmore He can't be very good if Montreal gave up on him. But then again, they gave up on McDonough too. Maybe he will be good, lets hope so.

@TomDundie I think that Kevin and Adam just want to fill blog space when there is no real hockey news.
I couldn't even finish Adam's article it was so boring. I agree that it is better to write nothing then to waste time on Garbage like Adam's article. BOARING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun What does opaque mean?
@cb1 One thing Glass is definitely better at then Boyle (the punching bag) is using his fists. Boyle was game in trying but he just can't fight, which is surprising because most of the enforcers in the NHL. are of Irish origin.
@ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun Riding shotgun for some youth is a very good point. We want our youngsters to concentrate on hockey and let some-one step up and protect them when needed.
@BobDunne @scrangersfan @AnnoyingJoe @betweentheworlds @DP_Snotty @Say my Name @TomDundie I'LL SECOND THAT!
@BobDunne @scrangersfan @AnnoyingJoe @betweentheworlds @DP_Snotty @Say my Name @TomDundie Thanks for excepting my offer of truce. My fault is that for me the glass is always half empty not half full. We all have vices, mine is being somewhat of a pessimist but we can't change who we are
You're correct, last year was a lot of fun since not many of us Rangers fans thought they go as far as they did. It was awesome to watch our team competing into June. Makes the off season shorter.
You too have a great summer.

@BobDunne @scrangersfan @AnnoyingJoe @betweentheworlds @DP_Snotty @Say my Name @TomDundie For the record, I have been a fan of this team since 1964 which included season tickets for a number of years. During that time they had won one Stanley cup ('94) You have to forgive me if my patients have ran out. I'm tired of all the mental anguish this team have cost me and I must vent my frustration with them. You apparently have stronger resolve then I do but you don't have to beat on me for making a negative comment about them. Being a faithful fan for 50 years had afforded me that privilege. We all have a rite to express our opinions without having to worry about abusive comments from fellow Ranger fans. As for me, I'm willing to forget about these unpleasant exchanges so the rest is up to you.
( Forgive me if I miss spelled any words but English is my second language.)

@betweentheworlds Boy that is a pipe dream but sounds great!
@DP_Snotty @AnnoyingJoe would you be kind enough to explain that comment?.
@AnnoyingJoe This is as good as it gets for Hank. I hope he enjoys the ride because IMO. the Rangers will not be in the finals for at least 10 more years and by then Hank will be ancient history. I'm so sure of that that I'm not even wasting my money this year to renew the hockey package on Direct TV.
That also goes for the Giants. Forecast for NY sports for 2014-15 Disaster!!!!!!!!!

@betweentheworlds Almost great one? give me the name of one Rangers player on the present foster who comes even remotely close to Kovalev's talent. On his best day, Kovi was the best player on the ice including Messier and Mess is my hero.

@grublets on ice Actually that's not a bad Idea, it might work. The only problem is that Nash is too soft and the line will be pushed around by the opposition.

@johnnyb3910 @grublets on ice You guys crying about Stepan not being a first line center and now want to put Miller there? Come on guys, that's not a move for the better. Miller is not even in Stepans class, not yet anyway.
@Scott from SEC 224 @EugenePlaksienko @King For Cup They don't have to give up anyone. Richards will be a free agent next year.
