@Kevin DeLury @KreiderisTheChosenOneSo you lied to me yesterday.

Kevin you said, "i said the other day how much I love
the NHL players in the Olympics, but all these near misses for the
Rangers has me re-thinking that statement"About time you wake up!!!

@Kevin DeLury @gravey94Olympics should be for amateurs like it was years ago. We totally disagree on this.
1 year, 1 month ago on Hagelin Injured as Sweden Goes to 3-0; Oshie, McD Lead USA to Win Over Russia
@Kevin DeLury @lennynyrSo you sacrifice the league and the idle players and the possibility of injury just to see this game? Like I said, you are out of your mind.
That game was supposed to be televised but they switched and televised the other one. Think in North America, Sweden game was only available in Canada.
Give Olympic hockey back to the amateurs Kevin. Can't believe you want the NHL to send players in 2018. Are you out of your mind??
I watched the game and didn't hear any report of an injured shoulder. Announcers said it was a stick to the mouth. Who reported otherwise??
1 year, 1 month ago on Hagelin Leaves Game After Stick to the Face
I'd sign Stralman.
1 year, 2 months ago on Callahan/Girardi Seeking 7-Year Contracts as Sather Gauges Interest
Go get McGrattan. Shouldn't be too expensive. Then drop Boyle. His minutes have gone down so AV losing confidence in him.
1 year, 2 months ago on Rangers Scouting, Being Scouted
Disagree Kevin, it will be Boyle.
1 year, 3 months ago on Staal & Callahan to Travel With Team on Road Trip; Rangers Still Mulling Del Zotto Trade; McIlrath Update
Kreider should give back that goal? BULLSHIT! He has been robbed and devoid of good bounces in the past. One of the dumbest things I heard you say Kevin.
1 year, 3 months ago on Rangers 4, Wild 1
Poor Kevin. He is now a Blackhawk fan.. :)
1 year, 3 months ago on Mashinter Traded to Chicago for Beach
Jasper Fast hasn't played for weeks. Is he hurt or went back to Sweden?
1 year, 4 months ago on Kristo Day-to-Day With Injury
@giammarcor Not bad Bob. From the new league leader....lol
1 year, 4 months ago on Not Another Del Zotto Trade Rumor
Wrong Kevin, this loss is on Lundqvist as well as the Jersey game. Too many soft goals lately. Only the goal LA scored off a deflection by Stralman was not his fault. You said it yourself, the Rangers outplayed the Bruins yet their goaltender, who outplayed Lundqvist, stopped everything except Brassards shot which was well placed and Rask was screened.Hank may be nervous with the stellar play of Talbot so far or hiding an injury. If the latter, he should sit until 100%
1 year, 4 months ago on Bruins 2, Rangers 1
@KreiderisTheChosenOne Winnepeg might not like that deal so it could only get done if Winnepeg goes for it and I doubt they will.
1 year, 4 months ago on Rumor: NYR Interest in Martin Havlat?
More garbage. Lock Sather in a room without communication tools and keep him there.
His mother told Vig.
1 year, 4 months ago on Nash Want to Return Tuesday or Thursday
@Tom Schodowski You lost your mind? Gaborik for Piluot and Pyatt...deal (if you can find the cap space)
1 year, 4 months ago on Gaborik Struggling in Columbus, Could Be Moved at the Trade Deadline
I blame Hank more that Vig. Hank screwed up and should have taken his medicine but compounded that mistake by deflecting blame. Also Vig is not familiar with the NY press. Think Hank was spoiled by Torts who rarely called him out, if ever yet Torts told Hags in public that he stinks. Av is not afraid to call out anybody when they are deserved to be called out. It isn't like Vig said Hank stinks.
1 year, 4 months ago on Lundqvist: Blame Should Go For All of Us
@gravey94 Whoever is playing worse at the time unless there's a cap problem.
1 year, 4 months ago on Nash, Moore Practice; Callahan, Stralman Take Maintenance Days
Are you sure there's no suspension? Haven't heard anything official.
1 year, 4 months ago on Kreider Stands Up for Stepan With Crosscheck; Won't be Suspended
D. Moore is redundant so both him and Pyatt should be waived.
1 year, 5 months ago on Callahan Practices in Contact Jersey
Ask him in 3 years and see what his response is. Rangers responded the same way when Torts was hired. Coaches like Torts, Keenan have a short shelf life since they get their teams to overachieve the first year or two, then they get shut out by their team.
1 year, 5 months ago on H. Sedin: Torts Interaction Is How You Want It To Be
Vig is right for calling out Hank. He's not going to sign with these misfits so I would look to trade him. Bet lots of teams would want him. On the other hand, Vig is out of his mind putting Pyatt on the top line much less not getting rid of him. Just because he played well for Vig a few years ago isn't a good reason to keep him now since he has sucked since being a Ranger.
1 year, 5 months ago on Vigneault: Lundqvist Needs to Be Better
AV has to go. But not his fault. I thought the Rangers needed an offensive coach since I thought their personnel would thrive under that kind of system but instead the players have fallen real short on that score. They have actually regressed under AVs system. The problem is the incompetence of the GM. If AV had players like he had in Vancouver, he'd have success here. As presently constructed, this team will not make the playoffs. Hope the 2014 draft is a good one. Their only two wins were low score, 2-0 and 3-1, that tells you all you need to know about this team.
1 year, 5 months ago on Devils 4, Rangers 0
Try Healy and Mishinter
1 year, 5 months ago on Biron, Asham Clear Waivers
Who were the 4 that showed up?
1 year, 5 months ago on Only Four Rangers Show Up for Optional
Stepan and Boyle to AZ for Hanzal and a 1st. See what we can get for MDZ and Girardi. Girardi doesn't want to play AVs style so a straight up trade for Kessler should be under consideration.
1 year, 5 months ago on Vigneault Could Push Sather for Trade
Trade Girardi to Vancouver so he can play for Torts.
1 year, 5 months ago on Girardi Apparently Wants Rangers To Play Torts Hockey Again
Miller scores 2 goals, Kreider 1 and McIlrath 1 as Wolfpack beat Albany 4-3. Their record 1-1.
1 year, 5 months ago on Blocking Shots Still Part of Rangers Game
@Iron Mike Need talented big guys who hit hard and intimidate and can score goals like Lucic. I don't see him getting into that many fighte but he hurts the opposition and makes them keep their heads up and makes the opposition think twice about going after the smaller guys on his team. Fighting is a bonus. Our defense doesn't hit or clear the crease. Good skaters and poke checkers but nobody to make the opposition fearful and I'm not talking about fighting.
1 year, 5 months ago on Will Nash's Actions Inspire Team?
Rangers big guys are pussies and the tough guys are lightweights. Not the way to build a tough team. They are going to be run over all season.
When the Rangers got Nash, I thought he was a driving force to the net, not afraid to hit guys and with his size and speed but he's turning into a ballerina turning the puck over at center ice. Maybe he should be cut to get his game back.
1 year, 6 months ago on Could Kreider Be Cut?
With the cap space limitations the Rangers may have to base who goes down on their cap hit.Fwds roster fight: Kreider 1.325M, Miller 1.244M, Fast 900K, Lindberg 760K, Hrivik 685K.7th D - Allen 1.775M, Falk 975K, Bickel 750K, Expendable: Boyle 1.7M, Dorsett 1.633M, Pyatt 1.55M, Powe 1.066M, Asham 1MFor
the forwards fighting for a spot, Kreider is the only one who was on
the roster last season so his 1.325M would go away if he's sent down.
Unless the Rangers drop some of the expendables like Boyle and Pyatt,
don't see how both Miller and Kreider can remain on the roster once Hags
and Cally come back. Sather can't do basic arithmetic, must be the
Canadian education system they have in Banff.
1 year, 6 months ago on Haley, Talbot Headline Waived Rangers
Waive Pyatt, not Healy. Other than Talbot sticking with the Rangers, how else could they have sent him down? Bad if both lost.
Glad to see a healthy Miller. If he keeps playing like this for the remaining pre season games, he'll be in the starting lineup. So it's a battle between Hirvik, Kreider, Miller, Kristo, Lindberg, Mishinter, Healy and Fast to start the season with the Rangers. Pyatt and Powe should be dropped. Only Piluot, Brassard, Zucc, Richards, Nash, Moore, Dorsett, Boyle assured of spots right now. Asham on the bubble, so there's three or four spots up for grabs. Mashinter or Healy should battle for 13th spot if Boyle centers 3rd line, If not, Miller and Lindberg battle for 3rd line center. If Vig gives it to Boyle, that means both Mishinter and Healy will probably be on the opening day roster. Miller, Kreider, Hrivic for the two left wing spots open while Kristo and Fast will battle foe the open right wing spot. Lots of options for Vig.
1 year, 6 months ago on Oilers 5, Rangers 3
@TheNYRBlog @Eric_Only It's really puzzling how a guy with his size and skating ability and a hard accurate shot can't play smart. He never seems to be on the puck like Miller is. He may be sent down. Maybe Vig will give him another chance in Vancouver. Would love to see him have a great game against his former coach.
That hurts just looking at it
1 year, 6 months ago on Rangers @ Oilers (Preseason Game 4)
I'm more concerned about the ineffective play of Nash and Richards. Kreider is the go to guy on that line and both Richards and Nash not able to get the puck to him. Vig tried other wingers with Nash and Richards with no better results. Rest of lines is Vig just evaluating. The guys fighting for the 7th and 8th defenseman jobs have been underwhelming. Both Falk and Bickel very underwhelming. Vig trying different guys tonight sans McIlrath who will probably sent to Hartford on the next cut. Good that Vig is giving Kreider a chance on another line tonight.
1 year, 6 months ago on Rangers Underwhelm In 4-1 Pre-Season Loss To Flames
Vig is still evaluating. Who will be the 7th and 8th defenseman? Kids look good but both Nash and Richards underwhelming so far..but it's early.
1 year, 6 months ago on Rangers "Fighting It" Defensively
If he isn't going to take 3.2M, if I was Sather, I'd drop the offer by 0.1M every week and make it clear to Stepan that it is going to happen. Let him hold out. If it's past Dec 15th, he's ineligible to play. Definitely put him on the market and consider the Hanzal deal.
1 year, 6 months ago on Brooks: Time for Rangers to Cut a Deal with Stepan
@Keith Volpe No way Keith, more fans are seeing my point of view that we should trade his ass.
@AG_Blue @lennynyr @FREE LINDBERG But there are two other guys on the line and they will have more space with Hanzal and more points for them. It's the total points on the line, not just the center.
1 year, 6 months ago on Defensive Pairs Taking Shape; Cally Recovery Ahead of Hags
@FREE LINDBERG @AG_Blue Trade him like I said. Hanzal will make everybody forget about Stepan.
@Melissa (blknblueshirts) @lennynyr Melissa, Sather only has 2.1M cap space. Just giving them Stepan doesn't do anything for the cap space and Hanzal's cap is 3.1M so giving them Boyle adds 1.7M which allows them to pay Hanzal under the cap. I picked Boyle since AV is going to try him at wing on the 4th line and both Healy and Mishinter would be better there. I think Maloney would listen. They would just negotiate who is coming to NY with Hanzal. It's all about the cap space Melissa.
@TheNYRBlog @rangers28 What say you on my trade proposal?
@Melissa (blknblueshirts) @lennynyr Besides, AG_Blue thinks we are the ones getting fleeced while you say they love him in Phoenix and won't give him up. I agree more with you than AG_Blue but Phoenix might think twice if we offer Stepan and Boyle.
@Melissa (blknblueshirts) @lennynyr Doesn't hurt to try. They might like the idea of getting both Stepan and Boyle for him. You might be right but what have you got to lose by trying? All they can do is say no.
