I like the move. It gives Hank time to work with Allaire and his game. He went through this before when Biron was first brought on board a few years back and responded well. I expect him to respond well this time as well.

A week off wouldn't be a bad thing for Hank. It would allow him time to clear his head and work with Allaire on his game. He's gone through these struggles before with Torts, this is nothing new and he's always come out of it just fine.

17+ minutes for DZ!? seriously...seriously!?
1 month, 1 week ago on Rangers vs. Sabres (Game 12)
It's funny everybody thought AV would benefit DZ. He's likely going to benefit Staal even more. Looks real comfortable jumping in on the play

completely off topic but Kessel signed an 8yr/64mil dollar contract O.o

@AG_Blue @DanW Miler is up there playing bottom 6 minutes because his two way game is better than Kreider's and can likely be utilized in more situations / more playing time
2 months, 1 week ago on Vigneault Explains Roster Decisions
I think Kreider would be better off to start in the AHL, he should have spent all last season down there and i think he would have been better off. that being said I think he stays on the team because Hags is injured. If he does not play well though will likely be sent down to Hartford once guys get healthy.

@NYRblogneill @TheNYRBlog While i think Powe will definitely be placed on waivers... I might be one of the few that thinks Asham may stick around as a 13th forward.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Cuts Coming Today
I'll be curious to see what happens with Hrivik, Kristo, Fast, and Lindberg. Have to believe at least one of them might be sent down with the cuts.
it's looking pretty bleak after our top 6 d-men...

I'm guessing Stepan's team thinks they can get an offer sheet during the regular season like O'Reilly did with Colorado. So they may elect to hold out into the regular season rather than go lower on the 3.5 per year.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Projecting The Rangers Opening Night Roster
@Herman_NYRBlog @Melissa (blknblueshirts) Just remember Dreger's the one who said that Torts could still be fired after they lost to Boston. If he's saying something, there's usually more truth than fiction to it.
I think Lindberg stands a good shot to make the team out of camp. One of the things I notice about him, he does not have to play top 6 to be effective. He can contribute on 3rd or 4th line roll while he improves his game since he projects more as a two-way centerman. Which give the Rangers more flexibility with a guy like him.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Slim Chance Cally Ready for Opener; Hrivik's Tremendous Skill Set
at the end of the day I think that Stepan will likely have to take the bridge deal, but by holding out part of training camp, he will likely get a little more per year. I say he signs a bridge deal at around 3.5 or 3.25
3 months ago on Stepan to LIkely Miss Start of Camp
Well i think the Rangers should be developing a G for a couple reasons, possibly as future heir, but also as trade bait if Lundqvist is able to sustain his level longterm for the next 7-8yrs. A good goalie can fetch a decent price on the trade market. See Schneider and Bernier.

At least now we'll know the reason why if they struggle down the stretch :-P

Do we really expect many players to attend this thng? To me it says more if Richards is there than if he is not.

@Josh6 you think we would learn by now :)
6 months ago on Eakins Headed to OIlers While Sather Continues to Sit on Hands
I like AV, to me if the Rangers could get a some more offense and puck posession which has not been talked about as much. It could help take pressure off the defense and Hank. Since the opposition will have less opportunities to score.
6 months, 1 week ago on Rangers To Speak With Alain Vigneault, Dallas Eakins
@Josh6 I look at it the opposite, I see no reason with the talent the Rangers have that they cannot take second place and compete for a division title. Maybe I'm just being optimistic though
