What Henrik Sedin said is exactly what the Rangers used to say about Tortorella. Duh. Torts is a good coach. Always was. Just real lousy at being nice to the media.

Henrik likely has a groin/hammy/calf etc muscle strain issue. Assuming it's minor they're best served not pushing him and hoping Talbot can get them thru a game. Missing 1 game for Hank = several more days to rest whatever his ailment is.
Food for thought: If this team can find a way to turn things around and get thru this stupid amount of adversity it will serve them well in a long run. IF, and big IF, this Ranger team can tread water and get to .500 within the next 10-12 games they can be alot tougher than any of us can picture right now (I'm sure what we picture right now is pretty bleak).

I mean, there are always some nice players out there but what prospects is Slats planning on giving up? At the end of the day that's really what's gonna make a deal like this happen with a team that's deciding to punt the season. For everyone that wants to trade Del Zotto - we have no one who comes close to being capable of playing regular minutes on D after that top 6 (not Falk, not McIlrath, not Allen, not Aaron Johnson) unless someone wants to see if Steve Eminger wants to come back from Russia. Also remember, the kid's had some great moments in his career. This is a real young season and trading him when is value is at its lowest isn't the best business.
As far as Ott (who's snarl this team could use) I imagine Pyatt/Zuccarello/Pouliots contract(s) would be unloaded but they'd have to give up a nice pick along with whoever they send.

Would love to see Fast get a shot playing a bit more of an offensive role...the kid plays with enough pace and physicality to earn that shot.

The kid can fight no question...and he's been able to score at a nice level for a tough guy at the AHL level. Let's hope he can get involved and play a consistent physical game on the NHL level...last year he didn't, but like AV says, clean slate, grab it!
