@Josh-CK "Here", in the sense that he's practicing his slapshot. He shoots at the net from New Jersey.
@Say my Name Sorry, I think I may have mashed up some adderall in your black coffee. Might explain this post. And by "sorry", I mean "you're welcome"
@EHBIGAPPLE @ObviouslyItsANewSeason As an "amiable" I completely agree with this analysis

@gravey94 @Josh-CK Yup, you, me, and that other guy are still contenders. It's hard, given how much Nash sucks.
Whoops, now its just you and that other guy.

This is tough. I'm a little old-fashioned, so I think you earn your way up. I remember commenting when Cally left that McD should wear an "a" first, and got some push-back. I'd be comfortable with either Stepan or McD, but McD needs to be taken down a peg. He's arrogant. Making him wear an "a" first is a promotion of sorts, while still reminding him his shit didn't stop stinking last year. He's developing a messiah complex, and it's annoying.
Further consideration .. with St. Louis on your team, whoever is captain would have to deal with the fact that St. Louis is, because of experience, poise, respect, and class, the de facto captain anyway, and practically a coach on the ice. Maybe give him the C as a recognition of reality, or offer it to him and let him decide if he wants to refuse it.

@ktc990 That is exactly what I'm hoping. We shall see.

@ObviouslyItsANewSeason We will definitely have a better beginning of the season, but let's try and keep it in perspective. I'm not telling you because of you, I'm hoping you remind ME when I get high on being up in the standings from last year lol
@Say my Name @omnishambles I wasn't invited. Probably because when I'm drunk I mumble about bad referee calls from 3 years ago. I get it, I get it! I'm bad company.
@KevinTheNYRBlog @Sean Clark If Adam Herman is writing, it's only because he doesn't have the puck.

@Gorangers0525 You guys are amateurs. The coke livens you up so that you don't pass out at the wheel. Safety first!
@Bleed_the_freak Makes sense, the broadcasting world is huMANGUS big.
The fines for diving should be more than 5,000. This will not stop Cindy crybaby, or the entire Montreal Canadien team.

@Josh-CK Cindy still hasn't learned. The more you whine, the more you cry, the more you get slapped. Do it until he learns. If he never learns, do it for fun!
@Say my Name Your vomit is a sign that the season is upon us.

@KevinTheNYRBlog You can also do alternative headlines. This one could have been "pills and police; stralman drinks a whineiken; traverse the universe with your imagination because the revolution won't be televised; Stepan steps off"

@rangersfan @scrangersfan I expect a significant decline with Girardi, might be an idea to shop him around to see what we could get. A team like the Bruins might take him, and we could get a prospect and a draft pick out of it.
@Say my Name @IhaveawaiteratMSG I admire that you didn't explode with laughter. I would not have been able to keep it in.
@Say my Name While you live life on the lam, many of the people in the small towns you visit live life by being on a lamb. Giggitty.
@scrangersfan I think the thing with Boyle was two-fold. He quarterbacks the PP, so he replaces two players, a D and Brad Richards. Not saying I agree, but that is how it was probably figured out. Hate the salary cap, what can I say.
@Say my Name If he doesn't get 30 goals this season then I say we trade him for a cadburry bunny outfit.
Just got my tickets. Hope to see Miller on the ice, throwing hits, making plays, and being a pest!

I feel like this is bizzaro blog. Everyone is ::twitch:: psyched. This is unsettling. ::twitch:: .. feeling a ::twitch:: little ::twitch:: like my terrets might come out .....
"This team lacks touchness!"
Whew. Much better. LGR!! Here's hoping we go all the way. We won't know until we play the games, so let's get it started!

@KevinTheNYRBlog @Sniper Turcotte I'd give credit to Renney for the better scouting and helping to change the philosophy of looking to the future. I think Torts may have stunted the growth in some ways, although he thought of himself as looking to the younger players too.
@Say my Name Your sarcasm gives me a platonic thrill
I've always found sociopaths highly entertaining. Well done, Mr. Avery.

Let's really be Machiavellian here ... start him in the NHL, feed him the puck to score. If he scores, great. If not, talk about all the "intangibles" and "maturity" and how he "sees the ice" after every game ... wait 5 games, then trade him for a younger prospect. BOOM! Then call up Hayes, or JT.
I'm sinister, I know.

@JoeyKocur Heard a lot during the finals about how the Rangers are fast, but the Kings were big AND fast. Ultimately willed us off the puck for long stretches. With a player like this, we help address that deficiency.

@Tanner Glass @Ahockeyguy2 Drink your muscle milk, Tanner. Without Carcillo, there's no back-up. YOU'RE the back-up.
For the record, though .. I'd take Carcillo back in a red hot second. This signing makes that harder, but I get it. Future prospect, rather than a one year banger contract.
Ok, my two cents:
This revamps the prospect pool by adding a Kreider-quality player (different player but same level of promise, I think) who can contribute by late this year, or earlier, worst case next year. If the kid slots in as a winger on the third line, and has some success, it could bump either Stempniak or Lombardi to the bottom line, which would mean we have a playmaker on the 4th line, which means the 4th line would be a possession machine again. That would replace one thing that Boyle did well (he actually was a very talented 4th liner, but an insufficient third line center, IMHO) and keep our fourth line VERY dangerous. It would have grit (Glass) and talent, in that case.
Another scenario is that Lombardi get's bumped down and tutors our AHL prospects, which isn't so far off. He hasn't played in the NHL in a while, and his stats may only look good because he played overseas. Who knows how he'll readjust to an NHL sized rink, with harder hits, given his injury history?
In any case, this was a great signing.
@Josh-CK @Snot-Bubbler Dude, I want to agree with you, but I just don't want the team to get into the habit of throwing away picks either. I think this Hayes thing helps solve the problem short term, hopefully the other NCAA guys we snatched up also fill holes.
I'm surprised our mileage wasn't more. I guess they didn't consider how many extra miles were put in because of Del Zotto not being able to stop the puck at the blue line =)

@betweentheworlds Damn Canadians, with their flapping heads! Blame Canada! The reason Edmonton doesn't log the most miles is because it's measured by gasoline, and as we all are aware, Canadian teams use maple syrup as fuel.
@ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun @IhaveawaiteratMSG @johnnyb3910 Epic
I actually agree with your lines. You are a gentleman and a scholar. I just hope to the hockey gods that they resign Carcillo so that the line can be a puck possession monster again. Oh yeah, and because he can throw a punch.
I know an excellent fourth line option. CARCILLO!!! I get nervous every day he isn't signed.
@Say my Name Sarah Jessica Parker looks like a foot, so I'm pretty sure you're not giving yourself enough credit, kind sir.
@KevinTheNYRBlog @King For Cup Richards numbers can be described using the Seinfeld episode about "shrinkage"
@johnnyb3910 This is where I expect someone to put a picture of a dead horse .. calling @DP_Snotty
@Say my Name I tend to be of the opinion that Stepan is a serviceable center, and will improve his numbers. That being said, I agree he doesn't dazzle, but I'm ok with it. His performance doesn't irk me. Nash's does. I think Nash should be on his own line .. in that I'd put him on the third or fourth line and let him be a beast. Let him do his back-ins, and puck craziness on an unsuspecting line and a second or third defense pairing. Putting him on the first line is folly. His type of game doesn't improve anyone else. He either backs in, and shoots, or he doesn't, and then the other team gets the puck and we start over. This is acceptable on any line other than the first.
@Say my Name @rangermom In other words, "this team lacks toughness"
@KevinTheNYRBlog @grosselk Considering how bad Zel Zotto is, I'd take them both out on the ice and make them stand at the blue line. I'd then pass them the puck. Whoever actually could stop it, rather than letting it leave the zone? Is worth the fricken 1.3mm.
