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.
I think our goose is cooked. Now we'll find out just how valuable Zucc. is to the Rangers. IMO, there no cup without Zucc. He make's he's line one of the best in the NHl. Without him it's average at best.

@Picaz77 Ya rite, dream on. The Rangers could have had Tarashenko, he was available when they drafted McIllrath. Go figure!

@Torts4Ever Something like the Patriots I football?
@dsclaw88 @fs2020 IMO Boyle was a biggest mistake to sign, He is a liability out there. He should be the one sitting when glass gets into the liup
@fs2020 @JoeyKocur Forgwet about marty. He is an old man and he shows it.
@SmellyKisio IF you
think this series as baaah, wait until the next series. If the fishsticks get by Washington, you may see the best playoffs series ever between the Rangers and the isles. Th Islaners treat every game against the Rangers as the the 7 th game of the Stanley cup finals. The Rangers will have to play the very best of 60minute hockey to be able to eliminate the iles.
@denelor Correct but only one meaningless goal.

@Gorangers0525 @scrangersfan @Say my Name I want him to score goals not assists you don't need a guy making 8mills a year to pile up assists.
But you're correct, we all are entitled to our opinion. You respect mine an I respect yours.We're all Rangers fans, I hope.

@Billfrom Brookhaven @It Only Hurts Unfortunately for me, I live out of state and get what's available.
@It Only Hurts I got a same expression. HR sounded very subdued after the game. Remember, he was the Devils play by play guy for years.
@Say my Name While Zucc is my favorite player on the Rangers, I 'm really disappointed in him in the playoffs. He is not nearly as passionate as he was during the season. I expect more from him.
As for Nash, he played as I expected him to play in the playoffs. A no show in all 4 games. Hope he wakes up real soon before he establish himself is a perennial playoffs bust. ( Remember, they got him to score goals not playing defense.)
Girardi is a beast, one of the very best in the league
Staal is quietly doing a good d job defending game after game.
Kreider is while a lot of bloggers see him as doing a good job. is very spotty at best IMO.
Hayes is going to be a very elite center in a couple years. There is no limit to his talent.
StLouis must consider retiring after the season. There is nothing left in his tank.
Boyle is the anchor on the teams neck.
Glass is quietly playing a steady game with a lot of hustle.
Brassard is the Jackpot we won when we got him.
Hagelin kills with his speed.
Moore must be re signed for next season, the guy is mister consistency.
Fast is a steady young player who will only get better.
Stepan, did not have his best game but no concern there.
Miller was very quiet last night.
To sum it up, even without the best performance by some players, we still won the game and that is very encouraging going forward.
LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@rangermom I agree with you.

@Say my Name What's wrong with drinking at lunch meetings? I did it for 30 years and suffered no ill effect except maybe a little brain damage resulted in sticking with the Rangers for 50 years. LOL.( Just kidding.)
@MikeBlue I agree with you on everything except on Brassard. Letting Brassard go would be a huge mistake. It would ruin the best line the Rangers have. I can see Hagelin go but not Brassard. Absolutely not!!!!!!!!!!!!
@petergoode I noticed the same but for Me, the less I hear that idiot is the better. He should be cut off every game.

@DP_Snotty @scrangersfan @Gorangers0525 Yup! it's one of many.
@DP_Snotty @Hotfreak McGuire is the biggest Pittsburgh homer I ever heard the guy is so obvious it's sickening. Wit all the competent color commentators available, NBC have to come up with the worst one . His monotone voice just drive Me crazy . No wonder NBC is the lowest network in the Ratings.
@Gorangers0525 You're correct! Giannone have to be the worst interviewer in sports. I get a head-ache listening to the stupid questions he asks.
@4tonynoluck Well stated tony, I totally agree with you. Stupid decisions usually lead to losing the game.
@rangermom @scrangersfan @JMK8363 That is the best thing about this Blog. Rangers fans can agree to disagree. I enjoy reading other fans perspective on the team and the players. We all want the same outcome for our team. LGR.

@rangermom @scrangersfan @JMK8363 That's only because the amount of salary cap his contract consumes. Don't get Me wrong, I would love to see him dominate on the ice like the Rangers hoped he would, but you have to agree that in the playoffs at least he is falling short. As a person I like the guy. He is always courteous and pleasant during interviews and comes across as a standup guy.

@JMK8363 As I pointed out, the best players need to show up. Nash wasn't the only one I mentioned. I just pointed out that the goal he scored was in-consequential.
@ATCRyan Amen to that brother!!!!!!!!
@1994 @4tonynoluck Power play or not, you can not win if your best players don't show up and last night the Rangers best players were absent. StLouis, Zucc, Hayes and Nash were not existent. The goal Nash scored was after the game was already decided, down 2 goals with les then 4 seconds to go just makes the game looks closer the it was. He needs to step up and dominate to justify the 8 million salary he get's ( BUT DOES NOT EARN.) Please don't tell me that he plays hard on both offense and defense, he was brought to the team to score goals and be a difference maker. So far he's not done that.
@LFredrikJonsson You are the minority there Fredrick, As for me, I hope I never hear of that arrogant little tyrant bully again. He's a disgrace to hockey.
@Bueller @scrangersfan @It Only Hurts I agree, I was watching the game between the Caps an Fishsticks and was rooting my tail off for Ottawa. Didn't help though.

@It Only Hurts Suban is a dirty M.F. He should be suspended for s long as Stone is out. If not, he should be targeted by an Ottawa goon and take his head off .
@JoeyKocur @Better Call CK @Say my Name I can only wish, Gabi and Nash on the same team, wow !!!!!

@Say my Name Maybe we should wait until the game starts SMN, then we should score. LOL.
@Craptin McDonqvist He played only 2 games. Not enough to grade him.

@thenyrblogneill @scrangersfan I was just being factitious but you have to admit that I have a point. StL.have been practically none existent in the last two months where Zucc had really elevated his game after he signed the new contract. IMO. the grading should be reversed. That being said, we both are entitled to our opinion. That's what makes for a good blog right?
2 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/2015-articles/full-season-grades-offense.html
Neill, if you think that StLouis is a B+ AND Zucc is a B then you haven't really watched the games. Zucc is by far the best playmaker where StL. is just a shadow of what he used to be. IMO. Zucc ia an A and StL. is a C. All other ratings I agree with.
@thenyrblogneill @HJB91 Crosby did not touch it the first time and they lost in the playoffs then touched the second time and they won it. Superstition is a lot of bullshit IMO.If the team good enough , you can have sex with it and still can win and if you're not, then you figure it out.

@JoeyKocur @Craptin McDonqvist I know! And it scares the shit out of me.
@wherewasi @JoeyKocur You are incorrect! McD. had plenty of time to shoot the puck out of the zone.
@JoeyKocur You are spot on Joey! Tanner is being used as a whipping boy which is totally unfair!
@Picaz77 Or maybe the GRINGO line. That's what they call us in Mexico.
@JoeyKocur @scrangersfan @MyLoveIsBLue Maybe we should match up Zucc against Dubi, he is the only one on the team other then Glass with a pair of balls.
3 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/2015-articles/gameday-thread-rangers-vs-columbus-2.html
@JoeyKocur @scrangersfan @MyLoveIsBLue Boll is in Lucic's class, it would be bad for Glass. We need to bring up McIlrath to match up against Boll but it will not happen this year.
@MyLoveIsBLue A.V. should line up Glass apposite of Dubi. and see what develops. Nothing good for Dubi I'm sure.
@fs2020 IMO Hags should pack it in as a hockey player and take up speed skating. He keeps speeding around leaving the puck behind. I've been watching him, it's un--canny.

@BobDunne @_Jack HAHAHAHAHAHA! GOOD ONE bOB!
@johnnyb3910 @BobDunne I agree with you Johnny, one incident comes to mind is when Girardi stood by watching Carcillo beat the crap out of Gaborik. That was during the Tortorella era. I will always hold that against Girardi. Good D man but no balls.
@BrinaGu3 @BobDunne I really think that Kreider was scared of that moron!
@Picaz77 I hope the Rangers fans will remember the incident the next time Winnipeg is at the garden and shower Byfucklien with 9 volt batteries.
