Last two weeks of the season the Rangers have been skating hard and finishing checks. They play way more physical than anyone is willing to give credit. There is more to physicality than stupid penalties and fisticuffs gents. Says something about a teams toughness that they've been getting run at all year...and have the 3rd best record in hockey since january. Flyers can pull their Hanson brothers routine. Get worn out. Get frustrated. And then...get eliminated.

I need @saymyname and @joshck to buy a Nash sweater for the postseason. I have a feeling that st. Louis/step/nash line is about to enter beast mode

This is terrible hockey. And Brad Richards is giving negative effort tonight. You guys know I'm all about that positivity but he's trying my patience... he's not even skating hard in the OFFENSIVE ZONE tonight!!

I'll get the ball rolling here with useless hypotheticals...because fuck it, I've done enough work for today and I just got yelled at by my Lumburg for what amounts to not putting a cover sheet on my TPS reports. SO...I honestly and truly do not believe this ranger team makes it to the tournament with Tortarella at the helm.  He has proven himself to be a one trick pony and that trick is a tired act. No Camp in MSG, the long west coast road trip, Hank's struggles, Nash's long return to form from the concussion, Stepan's struggles, Richards struggles, Cally and now MSL struggles. He would have lost his cool, ripped the team apart and we'd be at 78 points right now begging to get in not feeling good about the team, the future and not enjoying the 2-1 games.  Torts leaves, McD is free to play an offensive game and turn into leetch Lite. Zucc Norris gets serious Ice time (not to mention brass and pouliot would have been benched for 3rd periods for a month before being traded) Staal actually plays a whole season not having to lay down in front of 5 pucks a night. I know AV isnt perfect. But for the first time in a long time (i always thought 2011 was fluky) I feel really good about this club.  Good group of guys. Fun, fast paced game. Have some exciting kids on the farm.  Solid in the playoffs in AV's first year. Exciting stuff. Hopefully they put together a nice run here in the playoffs, i think they have more balls than we are willing to give them credit for... but even if not, I'm all in on 2014/15 already.  Have at it boys!

@kevin those lines would be my choice as well. St. Louis turns into a super zucc on that second line and zucc is so u selfish he'll really compliment nash and the new-old step well. It makes a ton of sense I think the only thing then is we become SO top heavy. That third line with Richards and hagelin is basically useless.

First of all Nash is a stud. You guys need to embrace it. There's more than one right way to play the game. 2nd there isnt a softer player in the history of the Rangers than mike gartner so I'm kind of confused by your desire to see Nash become Milan lucic

Imagine any other sport where a borderline HOFamer gets demoted -3rd line- when he has the most points and goals of anyone else on the roster this season...and not a peep out of him. All we've heard is him saying he doesn't care as long as the team is winning. Why I love hockey. Jeter refuses to DH. Melo bitches about running an actual offense and having to play the 3 with Stat on the floor. U can tell the rest of the squad loves Marty too. He's showing real leadership here through his struggles. I have a lot of respect for the lilipution!

Despite everyone's constant bellyaching...The blue shirts are 15 games OVER .500 since november! They finally play an entertaining to watch, uptempo style. We've seen the emergence of pouliot and zuccarello. Watched McD turn into leetch lite. Saw Rick Nash come back from head injury to showcase a great all around game. Saw krieder prove he belonged with the big boys. Saw Staal find his gamr again. Watched poops a lot turn into a key figure. Fourth lines been amazeballs so has brassard. And all this without a consistent hank. A consistent stepan and in a new coaches first year! Im nothing but happy with the way this seasons unfolded. I wish youuuu would step back from that ledge my friendssss...

Everybody loves Chris krieder....and...

Everybody wants more retaliation...to prevent future injury...

Yet Chris krieder was injured retaliating in columbus. Paradox.

I love moving Moore up. He's totally earned it. Plus richie on the wing will be far less if a defensive liability and he can be a cherry picking sniper...playing to the strengths he has left. I think it will work out well. Plus it gives us a damn tough 4th line. Hagelins speed fills Krieders forecheck role. ..me thinks this will be a good change

Torts is an asshat. Craves attention. Always doing shit to put himself out there. All u guys that love the yelling and the screaming for no goddamm reason ask urself how u'd like showing up to work everyday dealing w that shit. Boss getting in ur shit constantly to "gey the best out of you" nonsense. Its a powertrip. In his case from a tiny little fellow that never made it himself. This isn't high school. He's not molding bratty know-it-all 15 year olds. These are grown ass men. Fathers and husbands themselves. It's a tribute to the humility of hockey players no one took a run at his ass yet. I was blessed to play baseball for a long time and got to a pretty high level. That Bob knight, Billy Martin shit just don't fly anymore at the pro level. You can be fiery, and passionate without being a an assclown. benching star players, double shifting guys to death; forcing them to lay down in front of 90mph misses in a meaningless January game, fucking with the heads of the rookies and cutting talented guys like zuccarello, is enough to lose your team, but then throwing guys under the bus in the media while trying to be billy badass with reporters and putting a bullseye on everyone's back with his bulls hit antics with other coaches?! Seriously. Fuck that guy. I'd take renny over him. Like AV wayyy better.
