@stRangers fan Wow I hope you are joking in what you are saying, otherwise I must say you don't have a clue. This is a team that went to the Stanley Cup Finals last year. IMHO
@GetTheKingACup @Rangers_54 @Zelrio They should bury him under the ice.
@Zelrio Not a bad team. Just a bad start. IMHO I think they will get their shit together sooner rather than later.
@gravey94 It the jersey number (4)

Oh yeah another thing. DO you think bestowing the captaincy on Mcdonagh might be too much for him to handle? Don't know the answer but it could be a case of too much to soon for him.
We need to burn sweater #4. No one can ever wear that number again. It is diseased.
@Purinton If Kostka has any talent you would think he would have been a regular on some team by the time he was 28 years old. He is slow as shit and got his doors blown off in the preseason and now you saw that he makes horrible puck decisions in his own zone. He single handily changed the whole momentum of that game. I hope he has already been sent back to Hartford.
Was Kostka cut yet? If not , why??? What did you expect he is wearing the cursed # 4 sweater.
AV is 100% right. A number of guys are getting the benefit of the doubt. He could actually bench another 4 or 5 players if he was using last game performance as a measuring stick.

Kevin. Excellent Analysis. Klein Was terrible. The Duke was excellent. Hagelin looks out of place with Brass and Zucc. While blazingly fast I don't know that he has the offensive creativity to play with those 2. Again I think Kreider would be a better fit. Talbot looked like a back up goalie last night. Nothing special. Having said all this I think the first 10 to 15 games will be used to do a lot of tinkering to find workable combinations and to sort out personnel. Oh yeah and I am really liking what I have seen from Stempniak. I think he is a keeper. I still can't believe there was no penalty on that hit to Zucc. That was so blatant.

@Hoserhey You forgot slower than Richards with Brian Boyle on his back. But I hope he does well. We could certainly use the depth.

@Barry Beck There is not 1 player on the NHL roster that he could outplay right now. Best for him to get regular playing time down in Hartford than sit in the press box at MSG

Nash needs a maintenance day ??? You gotta be kidding. Gotta trade this clown while we can still get something of value for him. He is a 7 million dollar slacker.....
@Hotfreak Bring back HORSETEETH
@gravey94 Awesome. So now Duclair is #50.

@TomDundie I humbly disagree with this lineup. Guys like Lombardi, Malone and Mueller have not stood out above the likes of Fast, Lindberg and Duclair. Why keep an over he hill player who will not contibute as much as some of the younger players. I really think Fast and Lindberg are NHL ready and Duclair deserves a longer look based on what he shown in the pre-season.
3 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/
Wow Kevin, Kostka?? He is so slow that Richards could beat him in a race with one tooth tied behind his back and Brian Boyle on his shoulders. Not impressed with him at all. I strongly feel that he is a defensive liability as opposing forwards will consistently blow his doors off. I think the kids with the best chance to stick are Fast, Lindberg, Hayes, Haggerty and Duclair. I know they can't all stay but I think those are players left in the mix. As far as the 7th D man I think that goes to Hunwick. Just MHO.
I can't wait for the roster cut downs so we can see the players who actually have a chance to make the big club play together. That Kostka guy is probably the slowest skater I have seen since Hamrlik. He was awful.

Damm that is ridiculous. I hope Sather smartens up after giving Girardi that crazy contract. Girardi is not worth the $$$ he is being paid and Staal is certainly not worth anything close to 7myn a year. He is damaged good. One concussion or poke in the eye from being finished for his career. Speaking of Girardi, I think you saw what will happen when you press him hard on the forecheck. His puck moving skills are awful.

By the way. I absolutely think Moore is the real deal and has the potential to be a top pair guy in the future. Hoping for a breakout season.
1 month, 1 week ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/2014-articles/rangers-re-sign-john-moore.html
Real Happy they signed Moore. My only concern is that Sather turned the screws real hard to sign him so cheap. If that's the case and I am Moore I am bolting the first chance I get. Nobody like to get screwed over and this contract appears to do just that. Compared to what Savard in Columbus signed for. Just MHO.
I like JM a whole bunch. I think he has a whole lot of potential upside. Dare I say similar style to Mcdonagh. I think last year was a first for him without the overbearing harness of Torts. I think we saw flashes of what he is capable of. A slick skating D man with offensive upside and good size. I think this could be a breakout year for him.

Sorry Kevin I tried. That lazy SOB should be there there with the other players. He has a lot to prove after last year. He does not get a pass from me.
@GiveGartneraCup @readjunk Really. That is awesome. He looks like me. Great photo shop job.
@scrangersfan @wherewasi I agree 120% with this. I don't think it is a physical thing with Nash. I strongly believe it is a heart or of lack of which is the problem. Point of reference, look at his first trip back to Columbus. He played with passion and was a beast. Most nights there was no passion just an empty sweater. He has to have the desire to bring it every night. That is what separates the great players from the also rans.
Wow. That has got to be the worst signing of the off season. But it is great news for the Rangers.

@DPMohr64 @KevinTheNYRBlog @jasonshyer Well put Kevin. When the shoe (skate) is on the other foot and the team has all the leverage they are usually sticking it to the player. I have absolutely no sympathy for any of the players or teams. This is a business and both should do what is most beneficial for them. There are so few exceptions (Zucc being one that comes to mind).
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/
I Like those choices. I think MSL is around for at least one more year after this contract ends. He also would be a great mentor for Mcdonagh and Zucc is literally the heart and soul of this team.

Unless Sather is beefing up the Hartford roster this is a total waste.

Not sure why everyone is talking about Miller replacing Poopalot. I think Miller initially will be slotted as the 3rd line center replacing Richards. If he can handle the defensive responsibilities (can he be worse that Horseteeth?) I think that is where he will be.
@fs2020 Elite 4th line player??? Wow I have never in of a 4th line player being given elite status. Listen I liked Boyle and the role he played for the team but losing him is not that big a deal. He is a 4th line player who is a very good penalty killer. We will survive his loss and I think Glass will provide upside in skating ability and toughness.

I think Sather should tear up his contract and get a new one done for more $$$$ and more term. If that stiff Girardi is getting 5.5myn then Mac is easily worth 7.5 - 8myn. Need to lock him up long term, like for 10 years.....
@MikeBlue You gotta be kidding. Where were you all season??? NEWS FLASH..... Rangers played for the Stanley Cup. Team will contend next year and for the foreseeable future. Just be happy Sather did not spend on ridiculous contracts yesterday.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/
Given the $$$$ that was being thrown around I am happy where the Rangers sit this morning. Yes we lost some favorites from last years team but come on, Poopalot 5 years for 20 million, Stralman 4.5 myn a year for a 1 goal season? Lastly B. Boyle will never amount to more than a solid 4th liner who can PK and win face offs. As much as I dislike Sather I am pretty happy he sat on his hands yesterday. I think D. Boyle will be able to fill that 2nd pair role and will be able to put up about 15X more offense from the back end as well as provide a better alternative on the PP point than Brad Richards. At least now we should have enough cash to lock up the RFAs we really needed to keep.
Wow. I absolutely love this guy. Not only was the the Rangers best player this past season but also the player with the biggest heart and balls. (you listening Nash and Stepan?) If Sather does not lock him up for the long term then he should stick that cigar up his ass and ride off into the sunset.
I don't see the reason we would go after Boyle for 5 myn. I think we have some kids who can QB the power play from the point.

The big problem with courting Stasny is him using us as leverage to gain a better contract from the Avs. He has said he wants to remain in Colorado and would give the Avs a chance to sign him. If that happens Sather and us get deeply screwed.
The Kreider is going no where. He is the first Ranger player in many years who has the skill set to morph in a superstar. Size, Speed, Touch. Skill. Once he has the defensive side of the down pat there are very few players in the league who will be playing at his level. This kid is going to be a beast. THere should not have even been a "why You Lose Him" section on Kreider. I will keep Kreider over Kane in a heartbeat. Kane is a head case who should be playing in the NBA not the NHL.

@Pvelyk @Rangers_54 Totally agree with that last paragraph. With the large contracts comes a large spotlight and increased scrutiny by the fans and media alike. I certainly do not have any sympathy for the players or the organizations. I personally think that athletes, movie stars and any type of celebrity are grossly overpaid. But I guess it's the American way.
4 months, 1 week ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/
@Pvelyk Not for nothing. The player or his agent has every right to obtain the best contract they can. As far as larger / longer contracts and overpaying for talent goes that rests squarely on the owners and general managers. No one put a gun to the organizations head to sign that huge contract. Most fans just don't get it. This is the same problem in every professional sport and one of the big reasons ticket prices are so high and beers cost 11 or 12 bucks. Good old fashion American Greed.
@Josh-CK Josh. I would keep Stralman over Staal any day of the week. If you can trade Staal for some offensive assets then go for it. Between the concussion and the eye problems Staal has not been the same player. I think J. Moore would have a good chance of becoming a top 4 guy and I really want to see Connor Allen given real chance to make the roster.
@nickdesposito Game 6 in 2012 was decided by a major penalty that changed the whole dynamics of the game.
@Poops McDonqvist WOW. The flying "V", AWESOME !!!
@allagash The only changes I want to se AV make is on the PP. Get Horseteeth and Gorardi off the damm PP. They are costing up big time. Would like to see Stralman and ZUcc at the points in their place.
WOW. That is actually great. I hope our guys can come up with something big for the game out in LA>
How about the New York Press and how sucky they treat the Rangers. The Rangers are playing for the CUP and all the back page pictiues and headlines are about the Knicks signing their head coach which is already old news. That is total disrespect being shown to the Rangers.
