I bleed blue
I want to be an NHL ref. You get to wear a uniform, chicks dig uniforms.
But seriously, what is the training like? "Here asshole, read this book on the rules, but don't worry, there's no test. Feel free to do what the fuck you want and make shit up, we have a room full of guys that will clean up your mess in Toronto. Accountability? No, don't worry about that either. Nobody will even know your name! Well, except some obscure blogs that track how much you suck, but nobody actually listens to them .. I mean we certainly don't! The only guy we fired was caught actually threatening a player with retaliation for a bad call in a previous game. I mean, we didn't even do that until way later so that both he and we had plausible deniability about him being on super-secret double probation! Welcome to the family .. here is your whistle. Now go! There remains many a fan that awaits your incompetence. Remember .. the booing means you're doing your job."

@AnnoyingJoe @jmax933 @IhaveanLCDscreenatMSG If light eyes and Saskatchewan mullets aren't your thing, thats fine. But don't be all judgy if I like a little danger in my life.
@MyLoveIsBLue The secret to life is knowing that no matter what the beaver says, it WANTS to be beaten.
@fs2020 Good observation. I think the crispness will happen when the chemistry is there re: Yandle. Glad he's taking chances finally.
Tanner Glass, I will be the juice to your pickle if you just retire.
AFTER ... you throw down with Brandon Prust to avenge his Stepan hit from last year.
@Say my Name @ATCRyan Say my Name! "Giddy!" Oh wow, thanks. You actually said my name. Shit! Now I have to change my name so I can keep my blog name. Or do I keep my blog name, and just keep making people say Giddy? Most importantly, where are my pants??!

@Say my Name @IhaveanLCDscreenatMSG The question I was expecting was "what kind of pipe?"
@Say my Name Indeed. Sports drama is the only drama I allow in my life. If you don't believe me, ask the houseboys in my basement. They pipe up, I hit them with a pipe.
@IcyCup @Gorangers0525 I think Marty will play with a discount of 2.5-3MM for two years to stay in NY and win more cups. Still not a lot off the books though. Step is first priority (6 year deal, at least 6mm). Expectations of Hags have dampened so he won't get a substantial increase, Quickie won't get too much of a raise either as he's a solid 200 ft fourth liner with no real upside. Miller will be told he's not an adult yet, so he won't get a raise either (and if it were up to me, it wouldn't be over inflation. the kid needs to wipe that attitude off his face and just get the job done).
Adimittedly, this is totally unrealistic. But hey .. you can't get stuff until you throw it out into the universe right? So here I am throwing!
::does throwing motion, whilst co-workers assume I didn't take my meds::
@Gorangers0525 I actually feel bad for scrivens. Guy got the short end of his already short stick
@Craptin McDonqvist "I have my own holes to fill"
- Martha Stewart (convicted felon, probable lesbot)
@Gorangers0525 You're probably right. If he gets hyped up, and if a team REALLY wants him (Oilers always scout him hard) Slats can probably get 2 depth players and a prospect, or a depth player and two draft picks (2nd and 3rd round)
@Gorangers0525 Anything less than "if he sees it, he stops it", isn't up to his standards. He's a headcase (in a good way) it'll take him at least 10 games to get his groove back.
If history is any guide, Hank will be fantastically awesome one game, absolutely horrible the next, then mostly ok with glaring gaps, then solid, then other-wordly. This will take at least 10 games to figure itself out. There will be calls for t-bot to come in and steady the ship, but AV will surrender the president's trophy and let Hank play through his recovery so he can be other-wordly in the playoffs when it counts.
It is so predicted.
Looks like he's a true Center. We'll need that in the future, and maybe another for good measure.

@Wallace1 My opinion? He just needs to use him or else he looks like a complete jackass. Before the season began, the argument was stronger. "We need a guy who will do the things Boyle did, without any of the whining about how he wants a bigger role". So here you had this guy who played on a fast-paced team, could punch people, and who blocked as many shots, and led the NHL in hits. Sounded (at the time) like the perfect role player. Now? Well, once we started using Nash on the PK, thus changing the strategy from "hunker down and block lanes with your face" ala Torts to "push the play and cause dissaray" ala AV, Glass was relieved of his PK duties.

Glass was playing well before he was out of the lineup. Go with the devil you know rather than the (relatively) unknown of Sheppard. I guess that's the logic. As for me, I'd want Sheppard in there as much as possible so he develops chemistry with Moore. Hate to tell ya this, guys, but even if we wanted to get rid of Glass, we may not be able to. I doubt any teams are eager for him, and Jesper Fast is not a long-term 4th liner. He will eventually be a serviceable 3rd line checking forward who can score sometimes (like the role Pouliot played) and who is responsbile across the ice. This 4th line time is his training for that. But if he moves up next year, we would still need a 4th liner, so Shepp-Moore-Glass.
@Say my Name @Chris M @jmax933 First three games we win, and the fourth game they just declare bankruptcy?

@Say my Name @IhaveanLCDscreenatMSG We're just reppin' the "feeling in the room". Which is also my excuse when I start feeling myself in a room. But who's counting? (Seriously, who is counting? I need to know)

Glass to NJ for a boardwalk pizza, a bag of pucks, and a 18th round draft pick in 2027
@JoeyKocur salary cap move. He'll Kling to the AHL like I do to my poster of Hank
@IcyCup Fuck yeah!
@Say my Name I predict that they will dress in a uniform that contains blue in some way, as well as red and white. The letters A N G E R (two of em) S will be on the uniform, but my predictive powers cannot decipher whether that is code, or what it may spell
Glass to Tampa, for Boyle and 1st round pick.
@Say my Name @IhaveanLCDscreenatMSG In tandem with the anvil, he can stand still with a sandle and have a candle with a handle.
I need to get a Yandle on what happened yesterday. Can anyone Sheppard me through why we didn't Klingberg to the Duke and draft picks?
@Say my Name @IhaveanLCDscreenatMSG When I rub myself, I always tell the girl that a genie is going to come out if they wiggle their nose.

@ATCRyan @Barry Beck Any trade with Hanzal should include Gretyl.
@Say my Name Being stuck in time has it's advantages. In my world, Saved by the Bell is cutting edge television, people still own movies rather than record them on their DVR, and Olivia Munn is still a NY Ranger fan.
Things I ate/will eat today: two hard boiled eggs, a salad (chicken, swiss, lettuce, oil and vinegar) and steak.
Me sharing my personal menu for today? Useless. Just like Girardi on the PP.
@gravey94 I call Dolan's ignoring the Rangers "salutary neglect"
@Say my Name Also, squirrels. Can't forget the squirrels.

@Say my Name @IhaveawaiteratMSG Doin gooooooooooooooooood. I didn't get the deets brah. Send em ova. And yes of course I want to partake in a soiree. Mainly because soiree is one of my favorite words, but also because I'm a drunkard.

My thoughts on this are that players should have league-employed (not recommended, actually EMPLOYED) money managers on staff. Or maybe the NHLPA can do this. These guys are dumb kids, and they spend like dumb kids. And their parents are no better.
@Say my Name sent my contact info over. check your spam, just in case outlook discriminates against hamsters
@gravey94 they should do with step what they did with McD. long term, even though is a RFA
@Say my Name We have to get drunk together
You probably didn't want to include the Giants for a second time, but their 2012 win over the 49ers was a tight, old-school game of grit that hinged on a mistake. Compelling television, especially for old school fans.

@betweentheworlds @Say my Name @MikeBlue We won't trade Step. We spend years saying we "need a first line center", he produces like one (and better than the guys we say we want) and still we shit on him. I really don't get it. I'd say the players we should be the most reluctant to trade besides Lundqvist and McD are Kreider, Step, Zucc, and Brass. That's our core. Everyone else is probably being shopped constantly and we don't hear about it.

I like the games where Glass isn't in the lineup, because I like Fast, and Miller on the fourth line. That being said, I think you keep Glass on the roster (cue outrage) Miller on the 4th is important training for him to learn how to chip and play without the puck, and he's getting better and better and starting to look like he should have been a 1st round pick. Perhaps he wasn't a mistake like some on the blog said at the time.
This team is turning into a beast. Nobody is saying how much they miss Sir Poopsalot, because Stempniak is an upgrade, and the youngsters are BRINGING it each night. My one concern is faceoffs.
Do we get Vermette at the trade deadline? Staal/Vermette is an even trade, except in cap space I think. I think Hunwick stepping up has made Staal's fate inevitable. No way we waste cap space on an injury prone 4th defenseman.
@DubiLeetchahan @IhaveawaiteratMSG Way to crawl out of the woodwork. I think this may be the only comment of yours that ever made some sense. I'll call you when I move to LA and need some stone work, because you're probably good at that. Two things .. Shanny sucks donkey dick. No real NYR fan likes Shanahan.

@Say my Name @DP_Snotty What's weird is that he got that cut from a hooker's heel when he chased her into the corner because she tried to take his wallet. Dude is badass! He played some game before getting stitches. And here we thought he was no good. Shame on us!
@Bueller "Get it together bro!" .. D. Moore had him pegged.
Et Tu? Hamsteray?
Nothing you say is significant and no one remembers any of it
Umm, alter ego .. you can't directly comment on your (my?) comment. That way when I (we) say contradictory shit on the blog it'll have to be called out by people actually remembering what we've said.
I did, I did!
