One thing is apparent St Louis really knows how to play hockey and in both ends and hopefully that rubs off on others, especially his friend and other guy making north of 6 million in their own end.
Is it me has Stephan got slower or everyone is faster, he starting look like a small Boyle. Crazy as it is I love to see Miller get a chance at center.
Dorsett is redundant with Carcillo out there and I think Carcillo is better player
Zuucarello can't get back fast enough

@mando24179 I think it was the concussion he got in a fight. If i remember correctly he was knocked out on his feet. Before that he had nasty edge and i don't think i have seen him fight since and it could have about 3yrs ago.
22 hours, 41 minutes ago on Maple Leafs 3, Rangers 2, OT
They needed Zuccarello back to protect them from the big bad Bruins and Philly.
I found it interesting that 5 of the 700 goal scorers were on the Rangers but none were on or helped win a cup. I guess odds were tough with only one cup over 75yrs. Management thinking?
I really have enjoyed the style of play this year for the most part and i think if they are on they can beat anybody but they will have go through the Bruins or Pens to get anywhere and both can be nasty and have playoff 4th lines that can deliver.
Moving Cally now might what is needed to get somebody that can help you with that problem. I loved his play since Renney fucked with him but I don't see his body holding up 5-6yrs with his style of play. Here Sather maybe has a chance to build a team that go somewhere this playoff run and possibly build for the future or is that to unlike the Rangers management?
Oh maybe throw Boyle in too..
3 days, 21 hours ago on Bruins 6, Rangers 3
You could say a lot of good things about different players last night but the one thing that I have really enjoyed most has been AV's decision and confidence in keeping his lines together. I think you can just see no matter what line is out there these guys are really developing a great feel what other guys is doing.
I want to thank the coach for eliminating years of line shuffling TORTure from my memory.

@shoot_the_goalie I was having a little fun by saying he should be captain yesterday but the example he sets by his play you got love it as fan and i think as player you would be inspired or embarrassed not give 100%
1 month ago on Callahan, Rangers to Talk Contract This Week; Multiple Teams Calling With Interest
Maybe if they don't sign Callahan they can take the money they save and put into scouting so they could possibly fill up their farm system with enough talent just waiting to fill a roster spot that this might not even have been that big a discussion
Give Zucc the C
1 month ago on Only One Team Calls Callahan; Sabres Willing to Meet His Contract Demands
I liked Callahan since the first day that Renney fucked with him, but here the Rangers as club are in a position to move a player who may or may not be on downside and pick up assets and somebody they could really use i.e. Stewart and build instead of being the team who dumped their assets and got the big contract guy who ended up on downside of his carreer. I am sure Ranger fans can remember a few of those..
1 month ago on Cally's Heart Is With Rangers; AV A Big Fan
I think Rangers had the big advantage playing outdoors since they are use to the crappy ice at MSG.
I think if Rangers do ever trade Callahan they should make Zuccarello the captain and if they want move Girardi they should just find a bigger version of Kevin Klein for about 3 million plus.
I don't really see anybody giving this guy credit so I'll say it again this coach with what he working with has them playing pretty consistent hockey for about 2 months and the type hockey that is for first time in long time enjoyable to watch. Hats off again AV. Also as I said last time as a fan i reserve the right to be a asshole and change my mind.
On different note did the NHL hire the entertainment director from the Hard Rock Casino?

You would think the Devils would have learned their lesson from their mickey mouse days and luck those uniforms got them.
Beside all the fanfare and sideshow the outdoor game brought these are a big 2 points as are Wednesdays in the 500 league
1 month, 1 week ago on Rangers 7, Devils 3
Wow the Blues look like linebackers on skates. Just imagine if JD was here last 5-6 years.
Did Torts sneak in and help with the PP last night.
Did they have a 4 line last night? Maybe Torts again?
I think garden was so quiet I could hear Kevin Shattenkirk family and friends cheering on TV.
I think outside a couple glaring or Girarding mistakes, they had their chances and didn't finish against a tough defense.
That being said I do think they need a 4 line that can make a difference in games like last night. That has some size and talent, I won't include Boyle because he has to be the smallest 6'7 player there could be possible who seems to spend a lot of time on the ice which would make him about a foot tall.

Deryk Engelland vs. Kevin Klein
Sticking up for teammate and going toe to toe with this guy.... I am feeling pretty good about this, I hope he can play D
1 month, 1 week ago on Rangers Trade Del Zotto to Nashville for Klein
@McPhee37@DaveFLI forgot to ask did you mean shotgun for Nash and Boyle
@McPhee37@DaveFLI'm with you, even last night you could see Martin ruffling some feathers. I would just would like a guy who can play and scare people cause you need to be able to roll 4 lines
Rangers take a contract off Nashville hands and get stay at home guy with grit and who is a right handed and move MDZ..... sounds ok
On another note someone mentioned that Nash flinches when someone taps him on the head after he scores a goal and someone else called that person a girl for noticing it, but i noticed it last night. I hope this guy isn't that freaked out about his head injury but it would explain his lengthy perimeter play after coming back
A good perspective I think from a guy who taught guys i played with in juniors to fight about the clown show out west if anyone is interested.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Speed Key to Rangers Offensive Onslaught
Exciting to watch. Puck moving, aggressive in 3rd period, closing teams down, time to develop chemistry, no more watching a team playing it safe and just hanging on Hank to win. Building players up instead of TORTuring them. Thank God that clown show is out west.
The way the they are playing now, I am wondering was that guy actually a detriment over 4 years he was here or just didn't have the players, I don't know.
I guess the experiment in Vancouver will be the test. He has talent, speed, toughness and a goaltender.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Rangers 4, Capitals 1
I' m sorry I got to give credit where credit is due and that is to coaching. I was ready to blow up this team a couple times and other times amazed how well they played but lately the consistency of play especially defense of different teams and decision making with puck is showing me that they are well prepared. They controlling games, putting big numbers of shots up and exciting to watch.
This guy had the patience to work with and stick with the guys he had and I am still traumatized by the Pyatt experiment. He had the balls to play a rookie goaltender while sitting a just sighed big contract goalie. He has them playing aggressive on both ends of the ice all game. Some may see a lack of passion but the guy is going about his business and getting results.
I still think they could use a Clowe or Lucic type who can play and protect and as fan i reserve the right to be a asshole and change my mind but right now hats off to AV. He is making this team very enjoyable to watch.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Rangers 4, Senators 1
Who would of thought Number 5 or 6 PP and led by Zucc and Nash and Richards playing against their old teams is what was needed for them to play hard.
Speaking of Nash, him going to the net and getting inside is a revelation?
Also adding a little toughness to the lineup wouldn't be a bad thing.
Didn't notice MDZ much, I guess that is good thing or have to hear about his agent.
Hank looks like he getting his confidence. 8.5 million reasons to like that.
I hope the Olympics do something for Stepan since he doesn't have former team to play against.
Watched the Dallas feed and the color guy actually said that Carcillo comes out from under bridge and then puts his uniform on... not much love
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Rangers 3, Stars 2 (Miller Sent Back to Hartford)
I say throw Talbot to the wolves or the hawks for that matter Wednesday night. Hank just looks fragile, watched him throw the puck back to a defense man and put the guy in world of shit and you could tell by his body language he wasn't right. Can't watch Richards play, still has hands but not legs.
What is it with the guys when then sign for money here? Do the contacts have a body or talent sapping agent on it? This year Stepan and Hank and look Dubi was lucky he recovered unlike Gomez, even Jagr had to leave the country.
I say trade everybody who's contract is up for their own good and the Rangers good except Zucc who i think can withstand it.
On another note I don't think Kreider should really punch anyone and risk screwing up his hands. He should just pick up players like he did Phaneuf except carry them over his head by their bench before he throws them to the ice,
