Miller played well.he was involved and noticeable He took a penalty but it was in defence-he tripped St Louis as he was about to shoot point blank on goal

Zuccarello was a dominant player.He won the game for us.If he keeps playing like this he's better than Nash, Stepan Richards/He's even better than awesome Chris Krieder who was also a dominant player .He is spectacular, all the overinflated hype about the guy from Norway is suddenly believable.Sorry to gush but I'm taken aback at how good a player he is suddenly appearing to be.
Girardi trade and Callahan trade ? Oh yeah baby. That' s actually an awesome idea.Both gonna walk for nothin or handicap the future at some point(Cally is too injury prone and isn't going to get less fragile).Rangers gotta make this deal if they can. Now's the time.Optimal return for both.get a 1st round pick from Boston and Buffalo plus -OMG .We would have a new future.

At some point Rangers are going to have to string some wins together.That is going to require some good solid goal-tending .If that doesn't happen, we are going to be out of the picture.

Can only hope that Lundqvist gives up NO softies, and that everyone gives a good disciplined effort.If they can get something decent from both Nash and Stepan, and everyone else plays with the intensity they showed against Capitals for 60 full minutes, that's all I want to see right now. If he plays,Connor Allen is getting trial by fire. LGR!
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Stralman OK, Status Uncertain for Sunday
Nash is invisible, not acceptable.Concussion fears or even not feeling right?Agree on sitting him.Pouliot is pleasant surprise.Not surprised at all Hags is playing well, he should be playing better.He's a core player. Missed a lot of chances.Could of had a couple.Talbot has to have those- at least two of them.J.Moore has to defend better on that last goal.JT Miller. If he keeps this up he'll be major.Now he has to score some more.Stepan has to get his butt kicked by the coach.He has to be a lot better.Again he's a core player.He isn't playing like it.Callahan and Staal are missed. With them in the game, we win this.Lundqvist back next game.Cross fingers.Goalie situation not good right now.

Its true he would be tough to play against, but to get good players you have to trade a good player.Even with Talbot looking ordinary tonight, I think moving on from Lundqvist is an idea that has to be considered.Ranger's need a very high draft pick and trading a great player is the only way to get that.Remember, goalies are replaceable-easier to find than elite forwards or defencemen.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on A Realistic Look At Why Lundqvist Is Struggling
It's likely Lundqvist will regain his form, but not guaranteed If he continues so-so netminding this year , he should be traded before July 1 when his NMC kicks in. Lundqvist is the face of the Rangers so why?Reason 1.A pretty good NHL netminder plus backup from an excellent Cam Talbot is acceptable for the Rangers-they aren't an abysmal team-far from it, actually, despite how fed up we get with them.Reason 2.The return on a Lundqvist trade could be franchise making- a first round draft pick from a low standing team plus top player/prospects.If we make a good deal, the Rangers would have a new much better team.3.Teams are getting to the finals with high quality but not super elite goaltending, and there are always new elite goalies appearing every year or two.If Rangers are going for a rebuild,which is going to happen anyways, they may as well start where its least expected, and think outside the box.
The lines seemed real good.youth core players finding their game-Miller played well. Hagelin playing as he should. Brassard is excellent. Zuccarello is awesome..Feeing generous after a good win: Maybe Nash can get back some confidence and Richards and Stepan can start scoring a few more.The Caps are a good team.Whoever is in goal has to play at their best level.

Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters. Rangers attacked and the youth core played beautifully, passing skating and making plays.Hagelin, Zuccarello, Brassard- outstanding.

I was wrong about Krieder and now I am wrong about Torts. So I'm afraid to make a judgement about AV.Except this: this team is playing the New York Country Club game.Who's to blame for that? Finding that out is the first step.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers Being Outworked
The only other 6'5 Ranger is "Diesel" McIIrath. so Avery must have been.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Islanders 5, Rangers 3
What gets me is that Sather makes assumptions .He assumes that Lundqvist is going to play better in the future and pays out an outrageous contract.At the time Lundqvist was playing poorly and because of that should have been offered less. If Lundqvist signs with someone else,because there are good goalies available,.we then sign another good goaltender to a less burdensome contract and use the money for other skilled players.Instead we are in dangerous waters and losing a year, possibly more.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Rangers vs. Islanders (Game 36)
Play Talbot 50% of the time. Lundqvist is not playing the level needed.He sits.IF Lundqvist doesn't play better, that is going to be a big problem.If thats the case.time is up on this season and we may as well start trading UFAs for rebuild picks, because getting a scoring forward isn't going to help enough.This team either has enough for Cup this year or its trade UFAs out to rent for picks.
@ATCRyan@teemuNYR yeah and apparently they were awesome in the Olympics too.It would probably free Nash even if Thornton is 35.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Will The Real Rick Nash Please Stand Up
Richards has to be bought out-he is in decline..Nash will produce offence regularly year after year despite his struggles for a few years at least.We could try Joe Thornton as his center and that would probably solve the Nash situation.
@ATCRyan@teemuNYR doesn't even have to be an elite player like Gabby.Anyone who can effectively draw players away from him and can score and get him the puck would free him up
Nash needs another goal scorer who can also set him up.Rangers gotta get a 20-30 goal scorer.He can't play double teamed every game.
Lol.Yoyo treatment for Miller.Staal must be on the way back-McIIrath can develop more now with good minutes.gonna be Interesting to see Kristo if he is brought up.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Possible Roster Moves Coming; AV Talks Kristo
They have shown some fight lately but have shown too many weaknesses at this point in the season .If they regress again -Here's the change: There's a few problems with this team.The roster problems are easiest to fix but they have to be recognized.1.The bad players have to go.be traded sent down whatever.2.Quality new players have to be brought in to replace at least the level or better of the bad players.Up from Hartford or elsewhere.3 the "OK" players who aren't playing brilliantly have to be let go or traded-they are doing more damage than appears.Replace with quality prospects or 1st round or 2nd round picks.The other major problems on this team are motivation, and management.Problems not easy to fix- Unless Dolan asks Sather to retire.
