@johnnyb3910@Beckfan5@Bring back Langdon@mando24179The thing working against him....
He doesn't put up as many points as most of those players
He's a little fragile
He'll be 30 next season and never put up 30 goals
He's not getting 7 years.
1 year ago on Callahan/Girardi Seeking 7-Year Contracts as Sather Gauges Interest
@johnnyb3910@Beckfan5@Bring back Langdon@mando24179Ok, lets talk the business side of it.
These are the players that Callahan will have to compete with this summer while looking for a 7 year deal;
Good luck telling me that he's not going to get paid what he's worth.
@Bring back Langdon@Beckfan5@mando24179And most teams pay for a player for what he is worth.
@mando24179Well, isn't that the reason why you get paid? For what you are worth?
@mando24179He did. That's not to say that he's worth that contract.
Or that there aren't stupid owners out there.
Keep in mind that Sather is known for holding his ground for what he wants and believes in when it comes to contract negotiations.
Don't be surprised if this is a ploy (and also reality if need be) to get the guys to come down in price/years in order to stay with the Rangers. Because let's be honest, there is no way Callahan is getting 7 years on the open market considering that he averages a .5 point per game while having a hard time staying on the ice for a full season plus the playoffs.
And Girardi, who seems to also want 7 years, is not by any means going to get that either considering that for a 1st pair d-man he doesn't put up the offensive numbers and does not play an intimidating game.
"Klein is basically the complete opposite of Del Zotto. A very sound, top four defenseman who will provide zero offense"11 points in 42 games played is hardly Paul Coffey. I am happy that Del Zaster is gone. Let him try his roller hockey'esque moves with Nashville.

Did anyone see the stats the Brooks posted this morning regarding Stepan?
2 goals in his last 29 games? That's very Dubinsky like!
Get an ego that you are somehow a 1st line player, hold out for more money, stop producing.

@DPSnotty@Beckfan5I thought it was for head anson carter in charge
1 year, 1 month ago on Rangers @ Maple Leafs (Game 43)
@DPSnottyWhat does HNiC stand for??
You know whats not right? The Rangers have scored 5 goals through (almost) 2 periods and Zucarello has ZERO points.
@dsclaw88@Beckfan5Stepan's worse. Nash hits the net at least
Kessel looks like he enjoys a pint and a cheese burger from time to time in that photo
Stepan blows too. Guy hasnt done crap.
Total pussification of the new NHL with that call right there
So if you move your legs and utilize your speed you play well?
@AG_BlueQuick, turn it off and turn it back on in 5.
@AnnoyingJoe@Beckfan5Get that puss off of my frame!!
Stepan would have trouble finishing in a Japanese massage parlor.
None of this ever happens if they would have just resigned Colton Orr.
I'd hate to point this out but the Queefs lead the league in fighting majors this season. It's going to be interesting tonight for all of the wrong reasons.Hey, they always have Boyle to protect them!

You've got to admire the swinging stick check in the second video.
1 year, 1 month ago on Allen Could Make Del Zotto Even More Expendable
@mando24179Richards may have shot his load but he still has more points than Stepan. And Stepan held out for more money.
1 year, 1 month ago on Rangers 4, Lightning 3
A. Richards is 2nd on the team in scoring and has been the 2nd best, behind Zuccarello, player on the PP this season.
B. What do you do with Brassard?
@mando24179Here's the deal with Kreider, Stepan and Nash.
Nash is like Gaborik, he doesn't need a play making centerman. They create their own scoring opportunities. Kreider needs a play making centerman. He has the speed and the shot but not so much the skill to create his own scoring chances. Stepan is an overrated #1 centerman. He disappears for long stretches st a time and when that happens, Kreider slumps and Nash is left on his own to become the lone scorer on that line. Therefore Nash gets double teamed.
I'd package Del Zaster with Stepan and see what kind of return it brings back. I really feel that Stepan, although a nice player, will never be a true #1 centerman in this league.
BTW, I wouldn't be surprised if he's left off of the Team USA Olympic roster.
Good!!! This guys been worse than Tom Poti!
1 year, 3 months ago on Del Zotto Trade a Possibility?
@AveryYesBettmanNo @Beckfan5 Don't fix it if it aint broke.
Why tinker with the lines now when they've been successful? Nash is the type of goal scorer, like Jagr and Gaborik, that doesn't need a playmaking center. If they ease him back into the lineup on Brassard's line I think he will do just fine w/o breaking up the top two lines.
1 year, 3 months ago on Zuccarello to be Bumped Out of Top Six Upon Nash Return
@AveryYesBettmanNoAre we ready to put Zuccarello in the Hall yet? No. But now that they guy has finally gotten a chance to play with top 6 linemates, with significant minuets while producing why take him out of that rotation?
Zuccarello is the best play-maker on the team right now. Breaking up that line would be foolish.
I like some of the suggestions on this page that the others are making. I wouldn't mind seeing Nash with Brassard on the third line with maybe Miller.
Why was this posted???
1 year, 3 months ago on Five Thoughts and Musings
I've been saying for 2 years now, Del Zotto is out of his league and looks like he belongs in a roller hockey league.
I wouldn't mind seeing Bickel to add some much needed toughness to the blueline.
1 year, 3 months ago on Del Zotto to Be Benched or Possibly Traded?
Well, if they do trade Kreider he would be another Rangers pick that was hyped up and that was eventually traded.

Wow, everyone is up in arms over Pyatt being on the 2nd line? What about that statue Boyle???? He's just as useless!
1 year, 4 months ago on Del Zotto Likely Out vs. Caps; New Lines; Talbot Talks Recall
I know that Sather technically doesn't have a contract, but does anyone know how much he makes?
1 year, 4 months ago on Sather Didn't Think It Would Be This Bad; Biron to Start Saturday
@cwgatti @TheNYRBlog I'd pretty much rather have Bickel out there sticking up for Staal and McDonagh when they get cheapshoted (Iknow that's not a word) instead of Del Zaster shooting the puck wide 20 times per night.
1 year, 5 months ago on Kristo, McIlrath highlight Third Round Of Cuts
By far the best play-maker on the team!
1 year, 7 months ago on Rangers, Zuccarello Agree To One-Year Deal
@Tspaker97 @supermaz But one of the defensemen that he's comparing was actually GOOD.
1 year, 8 months ago on Could Del Zotto Be Traded This Weekend?
@_Jack @Melissa (blknblueshirts) And I'll even throw Bickel in there!!
@_Jack @Melissa (blknblueshirts) Staal, Girardi, McDonagh, Stralman, Moore, Emminger.
@_Jack @supermaz How do you explain him shooting wide 75% of the time?
YOU!! are hard on Del Zaster????
Then what am I?
"...depending on the deal, I think
shipping Del Zotto out could potentially be a huge mistake that could
rival the Zubov debacle."Del Zaster through his first 250 NHL games played (4 seasons) has 24 goals, 86 assist for 110 points. He also has a total of SEVEN PP goals in that time.
Zubov, in his first 229 games played (also 4 seasons) had 41 goals, 181 assists for 222 points. He also had 21 PP goals. Not to mention he lead the team in scoring in his second season!
Now I know that Zubov played in a more offensive era and had better teammates but the two do not compare.
So sad. The guy was a monster.
Just think, Saure-Girardi-McDonagh_Staal. They were set for YEARS with 4 top defensemen. Now, they have Del Zaster.

1 year, 8 months ago on Del Zotto Had Surgery Today.
If they do decide to go ahead and hire Messier as head coach and Leetch as an assistant then maybe they should fill out the rest of the coaching staff with Graves, Zubov, Larmer and Richter. I am being sarcastic of course.

Wait a second!!!
I thought Del Zotto was the future PP quarterbak for years to come?
1 year, 8 months ago on Mark Streit Anyone?
Is there a possibility that the delay of game rule is changed from automatic to a judgement call?
Remember Drury's D.O.G a few years back when he batted a puck that was in the air over the glass while killing a penalty?
1 year, 8 months ago on Visors to be Grandfathered in Next Season, Other Rule Changes Proposed
@KevinDeLury But I am sure that there will be certain restrictions of the touch-up icing rule.
Like if the offensive player is ahead of the defensive player at the blue line then the touch-up is negated.
