@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.

@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!
I know I am going to be an outlier here, but I feel like we played down to our opponent a little bit in this game, and they bit us. Fortunately, this team is starting to show the same resiliency it did last year, and bounced back to put it away once and for all. BTW - we are in the top 5 goal scoring teams in the league. Who saw that coming?
@Say my Name Reminder ... I agreed with you. Given our recent history I just wanted to make that clear
@TomDundie To address your points .. agreed only a tweak or two is needed. Nash would do better with Stepan, Hayes can't win faceoffs so he belongs at wing, JT stays on the third line, and we have to trade Staal so I wouldn't trade any other defender.

@Say my Name It's ok to admit you missed me.
@Say my Name @IhaveawaiteratMSG Also, your use of the term shows your racism. Prefered nomenclature is as follows: beer and cheese nuggets, human-produced droplets, and just plain dinner.
@Say my Name Of course you can't conceive of a "useful piece of shit" because your mobile-humanoid-American life is so full of privelege. You know not of the plight of planted-Americans, who require dung for nutritious purposes.

@Say my Name @IhaveawaiteratMSG @Derek Stepan Your linguistic legerdemain and newly-achieved alpha stance at your desk are notable. While me being erect would be entirely unnecessary, I nonetheless shall indicate my appreciation for your contribution with a festive chubby.
@Say my Name @Derek Stepan What if we make him spend the offseason in Staten Island? He'll have to fight to get use of the weights at the overly aggressive gyms, deal with road-rage to the point where he would genuinely fear for his life, and experience periodic beatings from crime family underbosses. It may break him. But at the end, we buy him a pizza and tell him to get out there and fugghedabboutit
@Derek Stepan @Say my Name We had him ... Carcillo. But AV is stuffy and didn't want him back after the ref incident. I like that AV is classy, but I actually blame Dorsett for that incident. Carcillo had just charged Prust, it was his fight to have. Dorsett got stupid, and Carcillo got screwed.
@Say my Name My whole thing with Glass is simple. He provides the modified goon concept, a middleweight who can fight, which is something we have lacked. He can hit, put his face in front of fists and pucks, and dump the puck (dump and chase would be an exaggeration with him, as he doesn't really chase all that much).
If you are going to use a roster spot on that kind of player, then you have to have skill elsewhere on the line if you want a puck-possession game. Moore is the perfect center for the fourth line, but he needs something next to him. That's why Miller and Fast are great on that line, and it has the added benefit of helping their defense develop.
So it's simple, instead of a corsi guy, we have a middleweight. For balance, look to Miller, Fast, or a Carcillo-type player if you feel a trade is necessary. On nights where Glass doesn't play, expect more possession, but fewer hits. It's really that simple. Love it or hate it, it is what it is.
@Say my Name You're a gentleman, a scholar, and jolly drunk fellow. Your contributions make this blog bareable. Thanks for taking my trolling in good cheer. I shall now return to my regular scheduled programming of chasing dreams, women, and whiskey. ::throws back cape in dramatic fashion::
@Say my Name Remember when I said that I would pick a time when I didn't actually disagree with you and rile you up just for fun?
=) sorry bro, had to!
So ... This one time ... In band camp ...
Leave it to you, SMN. The team goes on a fucking 8 game winning streak and you find a reason to shit on them. I swear, man. I remember naysayers like you all last season .. This team this, this team that. Can they get a break?!

@fs2020 @supermaz Trade Staal. Love the guy, but he doesn't provide enough for us to break the bank. We should have kept Stralman, and we didn't, so some people will say since we let Stralman go, we have to keep Staal. I say we get a center, or we replace him with a younger, reliable D man who doesn't have an injury history (shame, but true that Staal is one bad hit away from having to retire or be reduced to a 7th defenseman). In the event we get a center, move Klein up to the second pairing and Hunwick and John Moore always play.
@Say my Name @supermaz Sometimes ... when it's cold out ... I poop with my eyes closed.
Staal stinks worse than my poops.
@Say my Name @Purinton Your latest work, Flyers and flying flies who fuck was particularly absorbing. I found it was dripping with good content and really thrust itself into the conversation on waiting for a good movie to come out, rather than release it prematurely.

@betweentheworlds @IhaveawaiteratMSG @_Jack @Picaz77 Sorry, what? I was looking at pictures of Tanner Glass' mullet. When that happens my brain shuts down. I think his mullet, on a squirrel that is marching on our enemies, could possibly rival Godzilla in strength, and surely beat him in the looks department, hands down.
@betweentheworlds @_Jack @Picaz77 I swear if it weren't for how much I love his Saskatchewan mullet, I'd blame him for all that is wrong with this team.
