11 hours, 32 minutes ago on Rangers vs. Devils (Game 30)
I'd be interested in seeing if Dorsett is healthy as well. We could see both Pouliot and Pyatt in the press box next game. See that fourth line of Boyle Moore Dorsett together again and have a third line of Hags Brass Miller. Each of the four lines could have high energy, good skating, solid forechecking...it's something I'm kind of excited about.

I know I was decently high on Mash when we first got him but he never did much to show why he should stay on the Rangers. He fought once or twice and while he could kick ass he really just...didn't do much of anything else. As for Beach, the reason why I'm somewhat not against it is he is still 23 years old and could possibly find this as a wake up call. Either way it's a low risk high reward type move.

I remember reading about the Kantor signing. I looked him up and read about him and I really liked everything I was reading. Give the kid some time in the AHL to really get his game going and I'm excited to see what will come.

Talbot starting tonight. Goalie controversy anyone?
@Say my Name So I take it you posted this twice just in case people decided they didn't want to scroll down to see what you had to say?
@Betweentheworlds A majority of us were calling for it. You're not the only special snowflake of the bunch.

I think we could see Justin Falk slowly evolve into that heavy lifter role in time. Right now I think he wants to focus on playing a consistent good game since it seems like if he makes a mistake he'l be the guy taking a seat next game. I think it's becoming more important that we keep Falk in the lineup. As much as both Del Zotto and Moore have offensive potential, we need someone who can slow things down and bring a bit of snarl when the time comes. While I was hoping Falk would drop the gloves yesterday, I was completely fine with him shoving, pushing, and just getting in other players faces.
Also, can we talk about how Zucc destroyed a guy on an awesome hit early in the game?

@KreiderisTheChosenOne Thank you for saying no to Bickel. I've seen him name come up way to often to the point where I'm getting ready to start punching people.
@AG_Blue @JoshKaye How do you think Torts feels?
1 week ago on Rangers vs. Canucks (Game 27)
Redemption is spelled: D-e-l Z- oh fuck it it takes too long to spell out holy shit he scored a power play goal
@GiveGartneraCup I imagine the NHL Network blacked out the feed in NY or surrounding areas since the game is on MSG. Not sure what else is going on in other areas.
I don't know what it is about Hank but he just doesn't seem 100% there. I don't know if it's the smaller pads or the new defensive philosophy or the contract situation or any other possible excuse I can try to think of to come up with for him, but something seems off. That being said, I'm not willing to ignore the fact he's had 30 wins in seven straight seasons, would have been eight if the lockout didn't happen. He needs to pick up his game sooner rather than later.
Goaltending is only one issue though. The Rangers average 32 shots per game, up from the previous two seasons.Yet we're tied for Carolina for only 2 goals per game. Two seasons ago, we averaged 2.71 goals a game with only 28 shots, putting us 11th in the league with goals for. We were able to create traffic in front of the net and score the garbage goals. This year, we're getting shots but we have no one to pick up the garbage. Shit they teach that in the Mighty Ducks! Also, our defensemen have to stop bruising the shins of players on other teams since those blocked shots turn into odd man rushes for the other teams.
As for the enforcer thing, still not willing to sacrifice a roster spot for someone who's sole purpose is to fight. That being said, if a player like Haley could come in, light a physical spark under the teams ass while playing a solid forechecking game then let it happen.
Just not Bickel...never Bickel...

...on a positive note, I thought Stralman's offense from the blueline really stood out.
I mean...he kinda did...
1 week, 5 days ago on Lightning 5, Rangers 0
Watch the roughing the passer call on Michael Brockers in the Rams-Bears matchup...that one was brutal.
That being said....what is hockey? Since I certainly didn't watch it tonight.
@MikeBlue @JoshKaye I know enough about hockey to realize that Stu Bickel is hardly an AHL forward/defensemen and that putting him on a line with Boyle-Moore or a defensive pair with either Del Zotto or Moore would be a dream match up for almost any team. Yes, Bickel is willing to fight, get bloodied, take on the enforcers of other teams, But at what cost are we willing to sacrifice an actual NHL player when we're still having trouble putting goals in the back of the net? We've played better as of late but we're 28th in the league in goals per game. 28th!
We may be third in the metropolitan division right now but we have less goals scored than teams like the Islanders, the Oilers, the Flames, the Panthers...fact is this may be the first time our roster is finally FULLY healthy and we're able to put out a solid lineup night in and night out...and we want to ruin that so that a goon can come in, play four minutes and fight once a game? If we really want to improve the team from a physical perspective, we need a player who can play decent offensively while balancing out a solid gritty game as well. Bickel has zero offensive ability, below average defensive ability but can pack a punch. Are we willing to take out a player who can actually score a goal or make a nice pass for a player who can punch someone?
1 week, 5 days ago on Rest Now, Could Lead to Success for Lundqvist, Rangers Later
You know what'll really be the key for success as the season goes on? Bringing up Stu Bickel and having him fight every second he's on the ice, putting the fear into any opposing player who comes close to a Ranger. When Bickel is on the ice, people will bow to him and lanes will be cleared, allowing us to get the greatest shots in the history of the game.
...What? Is that not what everyone seems to be saying about Stu Bickel lately?
@Ryan Shupp Boyle did kind of just slam his head hard into the boards..but no, you're completely right, let him have a few punches to the head to really shake things up.
1 week, 6 days ago on Dorsett Teaches Teammates How To Stick Up for One Another
@GiveGartneraCup I said to my brother last night that I believe Stralman has had a better season than Girardi. I'm glad I'm not alone in that thought.
