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.
@GregB1919 @IcyCup I'm glad you said it's your opinion because you're dead wrong! Maloney is awesome and should be on with Sam.They would make a great team.

I just hope that if he makes the team he will have more then one goal. LOL.

@JMK8363 Since he will be battling Glass for a roster spot, it will add pressure on Glass to make the team.

@BobDunne @Hotfreak @Carosella22 @betweentheworlds @AnnoyingJoe @DP_Snotty Hey Bob, Reading your post it sounds like that it's the last hole in your house you're looking for . LOL.
You maybe right, but who put the team together? SATHER!

@Rangers_54 I agree with you 54, read my comment regarding the Moore signing above.
@gravey94 I totally agree with you gravy, I had the same feeling about the signing of the guys you listed.
@Hotfreak @scrangersfan Good point. Hopefully it will be his turn to play hardball next year. Like they say, what goes around, comes around.
Kevin, you're saying that the Rangers got a steel by low balling Moore. Doesn't it bother you that in the process they also give the kid a royal screwing? How can they justify signing Glass for two years 1.15 mills and forcing the guy who's been a loyal soldier for the Organization to sign for almost 500,000 less. It sure bothers a hell out of me. But maybe I'm just a stickler for fairness.
@ObviouslyItsANewSeason @scrangersfan @queensbee I'm not sure I agree. McD looks to me a kind of laid back type of person and if it's true, the last thing I want the team is to be a laid back personality. Hockey is a sport of high emotion and IMO. being laid back would be detrimental.

@ATCRyan @scrangersfan We can only hope. What's done is done. You have a good point about Skjei.
@rangersfan @scrangersfan I couldn't agree more.
@gravey94 @IhaveawaiteratMSG @scrangersfan Lets hope it all works out, but if it was up to me,I would have signed Stralman instead Boyle. Well see how it turns out.
@Hotfreak @AnnoyingJoe @AG_Blue Its time for you to start practicing. LOL.
@Say my Name @KevinMccarthy @EugenePlaksienko Good one! So it's settled.Zucc. gets the C.
@_Jack @stRangers fan The problem is that .500 will not get you in the playoffs.
@ObviouslyItsANewSeason @queensbee I love Mc Donagh as a hockey player but I don't know how he's handling himself in the locker room. What if he get's the C and turn out to be another Leetch. We all know that Leetch was a great player but a really lousy captain.
I maybe the only one, but I firmly believe that the Rangers made a mistake of signing Boyle instead of Stralman. Stralman is younger and have room to improve where Boyle is an old and declining has been and the upcoming season will prove Me correct. I don't know why Sather have a passion to sign over the hill players instead keeping proven young talent who is already on the roster. The 22.5 million was a starting point for Stralman and with honest negotiation, the two sides could have arrived to an acceptable figure. Now they have a guy who is making 5.5 mils. and his best years are behind him. NOT GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!
@Bring back Langdon Fact is, years of drug use will deplete the players performance level.

@_Jack @Josh-CK I'm thinking Zucc, Brassard Hayes.
@ObviouslyItsANewSeason His performance will depend on how much of his talent was sapped away by drug use.
@KevinTheNYRBlog @johnnyb3910 Especially if there are no other interested teams looking to sign him.
@Matteau Matteau AGREED!!!!!!!!!

@KevinTheNYRBlog @gravey94 How about Ryan Holwick?
@Hotfreak @Josh-CK @Gorangers0525 And who is "GS" ?
@_Jack @scrangersfan @JoeyKocur I don't think it was difficult, the Rangers are like the NY Giants. Once a Ranger, always a Ranger. I'm just glad to have him aboard.

@JoeyKocur It's nice to see Kovalev re-establish his Rangers connections. I always liked Alex, with all his shortcomings he was still an awesome player. He was part of the unforgettable '94 championship team and you can not dislike him. Hope to see him at some games this year.
@Rangers_54 @scrangersfan @wherewasi Right back to you agreeing a 120% Ranger-54.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/
@wherewasi @scrangersfan Agreed!
@AG_Blue Yes! That's what I want to know, I want to see that kid Hayes in action even if it's with prospects. Also will it be on TV?
@brian2686 You'll win a rick Nash action photo of scoring a goal. That should be a rare one. ( Oops, I said I will not rag on him, sorry Kevin! )
@DP_Snotty And you will not hear me in SC.
@wherewasi Sidney Crosby had more serious concussions then Nash and he is still the best player in hockey. IMO. It's the heart that drives an athlete to success and I believe that Nash lacks in his heart what it takes to excel not the concussions. Having said that, I'm more then willing to do what it takes to get the guy going and get him back to what he once was. I will refrain from any negative comment about Nash this year but if he fail, I want him out of New York. We've had enough bums in the last few years to last a lifetime already. LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@GregQuinn @scrangersfan @johnnyb3910 When you're in your 70's you're no longer interested in fans.

@johnnyb3910 If you don't mind I'll pass. I just stick with fried chicken, surf and turf, mashed potatoes and good single malt scotch. At least I have something to look forward to and something to live for.
Funny you should mention Petr Nedved Kevin. I remember when Nedved tried out in 2008. IMO he had the best camp among all the Rangers forwards and still did not make the team. I was upset at the time even today, I think the Rangers made a mistake not signing him. He still had a couple of good years left in him and he would have been an asset on the team struggling to score goals. But it is all water over the dam and we have a lot tolook forward tothis year. It should be an exciting season full of optimism.

@BobDunne @leftwingbarbara @JoeyKocur @ObviouslyItsANewSeason @Saymyname You are spot on with your comment Bob. There are no guarantees for those athletes, so they should hold out for as much as they can get.
@ObviouslyItsANewSeason You are absolutely correct. The cost of living in New York City is out of this world. I ran a cost of living comparison between cities to find out if I could afford to move back to the NY area and the website I used based it on $50,000 grand a year. If I lived in Charleston SC, ON 50 grand where I now live, I would need to earn 116.450 dollars in New York just to live comparably. Obviously having been retired, I'm staying in South Carolina and follow my beloved Rangers and Giants on Direct TV's sport packages. But I will be visiting the North East as often as I can.
@BobDunne @scrangersfan @BringBackBeukeboom @DP_Snotty The former one Bob, the latter one is a tool.

@DHizzy @scrangersfan I can only hope you are correct. I'm rooting for him like all the other fellow ranger fans .
@BobDunne @scrangersfan @AnnoyingJoe @DP_Snotty Let's hope that he will be a good hockey player. We can get 7' Nicks players to clean windows and ceilings. LOL.
@GregB1919 @scrangersfan Very good point Greg.
I wouldn't' get too excited, after all the guy have yet to play even an exhibition game in the NHL. We could wind up with another Gilroy who was a Hoby Baker winner, not a runner up. I'll wait with my comment until at least the end of the season.
@DHizzy And you don't think that Chicago is a strong team?

@KevinTheNYRBlog @jasonshyer Spot on Kevin, my money is on Florida.
@leftwingbarbara @rangermom @ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun I agree with you on the best city in the world but the best team? get real Barbara, the Rangers are not even close. They're well behind the Kings, The Ducks, Sharks, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Boston just to name a few. I wish I could agree with you because I love the Rangers and I've been rooting for them for 50 years but I'm a realist.
