@kevin11 Maybe Sather can overpay to have your eyesight checked. Re-read power play combination two, realize you're wrong, and facepalm.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @betweentheworlds He hits, he scores. He's becoming a legit power forward in this league!
For people who don't understand sarcasm, this is sarcasm.

Sigh...if only Hayes could win a goddamn faceoff.

@awesome bulldog That's a good idea in theory except for the fact Diaz is a Flame.

@DP_Snotty @JoshKaye @KevinMccarthy @EugenePlaksienko Because he looks like an AHL player. Not an NHL player.

@KevinMccarthy @JoshKaye @EugenePlaksienko Miller is a 1st round pick who has jumped up and down between the NHL and AHL since the lockout season. He's had actual NHL experience before this year.
Duclair could have been a 1st round pick but he had a hellish draft year. Duclair looks proven. Miller looks like the rookie.
@EugenePlaksienko Miller hasn't earned the right to play center on this team. He's looked less developed than a 19 year old rookie.
@J_CKfor30 @JoshKaye ...I think AV will find a way to get our leading point getting from last season on the ice. Since as good as Duclair has been, Zucc will most likely remain on a line with Brass and whoever the other winger would be. Zucc would have to really tank to not be in a top 6 role.

@gravey94 Marty has looked like our best center...which is sad since he's not a center. He's a little shaky with the defensive responsibilities it seems but otherwise what else could you ask for a player playing out of position?
Miller is fucking lost out there. I don't know what type of player he is anymore. He looks good in the pre-season but when it actually counts he pulls a vanishing act. Hayes has a lot of offensive potential and knows how to use his big body with the puck. Defensively he needs to work a bit but that's expected. The guy can't win a faceoff though. He's awful. Brass...we give a lot of credit to the Zucc-Brass connection but maybe he really misses Pouliot? Who knows. But he needs to be selfish and actually shoot. Good things happen when he shoots.
If Miller can't get his shit together, bring up Lindberg. Throw Lindberg on the 4th line with Fast and Glass, move Moore to the 3rd line with whoever is there at this point since I honestly don't know how these lines are shaking out anymore.
@J_CKfor30 ...I think AV will find a way to get his #1 center on the ice.
@johnnyb3910 @J_CKfor30 I'm not sure it was so much of him coasting...I think he's just really...really slow
@ktc990 Fast is hardly the issue. Keep him on the 4th line since he's been playing solid yet quiet hockey. Want to send someone down? Send down Miller.
@johnAMIRANTESrug Girardi missing 6 games? I know the guys play dipped during the playoffs but the guy doesn't miss games.

Any particular reason that Buchenivich isn't included?
@kmacc85 @IcyCup MDZ had NOTHING to do with the Nash deal. Trading MDZ brought us Kevin Klein. What are you even talking about?

@FBKs10 If CBJ is willing to do Staal for Johansen straight up then do it. But. I highly doubt CBJ would do that deal without us adding in a little bit more.
Also. Dan Boyle and Kevin Klein are better defensemen than Michael Del Zotto. What you're proposing is this:
Having Moore or Del Zotto as possible 2nd pairing defensemen is a terrifying thought. Del Zotto isn't a viable replacement for Staal in any way and at this moment in time doesn't deserve to be anywhere near our top 6 defensemen.
@Herman_NYRBlog I agree but for a different reason. There's no mention of Tanner Glass.

@Josh-CK I highly doubt Kreids and his agents would go for that or even consider it. If they're asking for $2.8 million for a bridge, they'd be looking for much more money on a longer term deal.
@KevinTheNYRBlog If Sather can pull it off, I'm all for it. Especially since the speed on this team would be even more absurd than before with how quick Booth is and how quick Lombardi is.
After re-signing our RFA's would we even be able to afford the guy at $1mil?
Now that the list is completed...no Tanner Glass? This is a disappointment and I refuse to read any more of this site.
In all seriousness, this was insanely well done.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @JoshKaye Ah my mistake. This only goes to 25. Well. If he's not in the top 5 then I will be very unhappy as well as most of the Rangers fanbase.
No Tanner Glass? That's disappointing.
@nasoov @JoshKaye @stevmore Sure. Why not.
@stevmore Bad enough that he's still not being considered as one of the young forwards who could step in and make a difference next season.
@_Jack "His empty-netter last night was no joke, either. Tough angle." Is it bad I find this absolutely hilarious?

Are we actually caring about this? I get that news is slow but for fucks sake -- TWO Tanner Glass articles? We know he's not the best hockey player. We know he's not gifted. We know he won't be the biggest reason this team is either a winner or loser.
The guy is signed with us and he will be representing the New York fucking Rangers. It's done. Let's accept it and fucking move on from the guy.
@betweentheworlds Seriously? Why would we convert Zucc to center when he just had his best season. He's 26. Look at all the issues our centers had learning AV's system over the first few months of the season. A center has completely different defensive responsibilities than a winger and to just say OH LET'S CONVERT HIM is kind of silly.
Zucc has played wing for what I can imagine has been his whole career -- his whole life. To all of a sudden decide, hey let's put him at center!...I don't know. You do remember he also would have to win faceoffs right? I mean sure, he'd probably be better than Stepan but that's like being better than putting a mannequin in the faceoff circle.

@betweentheworlds @GregQuinn Are we really going to bring +/- into the discussion? It's a pointless stat. Michael Del Zotto had a +20 one year, yet he's still a terrible defenseman.
Yes, he has the speed to chase down almost anyone, but when playing in our own defensive zone there are moments where he's very lackadaisical and just doesn't seem to care much about what's going on. There are plays where he should be a bit more aggressive to get to the puck first and win a board battle to clear it out of the zone and instead he's sometimes the second person there. Maybe liability was the wrong word to use, but he gets a bit lazy in the defensive zone and just doesn't always look completely there.
Just because he's improved his defense doesn't mean he's a defensive wizard. His best play is when he's in the offensive zone where he gets to use his speed. You know what though? He's 23. And he'll get better at both ends of the ice. But stop making him out to be this savior. Since he isn't. He's a kid who improved drastically from last season but still has to work on his game.
Watching those videos got me really excited. Especially Buchnevich. The kids got skill. Also loved getting a look at Halverson.
@Blueshirts Corner ...I mean. He was drafted as a center coming out of high school. But to me, the way he plays, he seems like a winger. Mainly since he's still a defensive liability and I'd rather have a strong defensive #1 center. Also, I'm assuming he was switched to wing going into Boston College so it's probably been a few years. No reason to go switching him now.
I'm very, very okay with all of these moves. Nothing spectacular and these guys may never actually play for the Rangers. But just knowing we have them makes me feel a little more comfortable going into the season.

@betweentheworlds He's 28. He's the older brother of Ryan Bourque, who's 23. The way it seems, they're both AHL/bottom six players at best.
@MikeBlue @blueshirtscorner ...Guess we shouldn't be using St. Louis then.
@MikeBlue I mean. Whether we sign them next week or today, they're still on the roster or would be on the roster. It makes no difference. They're depth signings, plain and simple.
Brian Boyle signs with the Lightning for 3 years, $2.3 per
...Maybe what happened was that Pouliot deal. Seeing what he got, you have to imagine Zucc's agents/representatives eyes lit up with $$$$
Benoit Pouliot 5 years $20 million Edmonton. Mark Fayne a 4 year deal with Edmonton

....There are several names on her that I've never seen before to have any involvement with the Rangers. I know the players we picked and am aware of the top prospects...but some of these guys are a complete mystery to me.
@mando24179 This isn't in response to the point you're making here but to your previous comments as well. First of all, grammar -- use it. A lot of what your saying makes little to no sense and I feel like I'm reading my 5 year old nephew trying to make an argument.
When making a point instead of using insults and curses, try to sound like you know what you're talking about. Calling people the "village fucking idiot" or "asswipe" or telling people to "get a clue" will only piss people off and disregard your posts even more than they do.
So I guess what I'm saying is grow the fuck up and understand that not everyone will agree with you and if they choose to have a differing opinion, present your case like an adult.

I'm sorry but if we trade Dorsett and slot him in for Carcillo for a full season...no. I'm not even going to think about that. Derek Dorsett is a better hockey player than Dan Carcillo. You can go on and talk about the "Carcillo Effect" and all of that, but Dorsett was playing some pretty solid hockey until he broke his leg. And then in the playoffs, Dorsett continued to play high quality games with a small amount of minutes. Yeah, Carcillo provided a spark in that Philly series and probably helped give us the edge we needed, but over a full season I'd rather have the legs of a 27-28 year old Derek Dorsett rather than a 29-30 year old Dan Carcillo.
Dorsett has a surprising amount of skill, solid hands, is quick enough and solid on the forecheck, and he's willing to get a bit dirty if the moment calls for it. Yes, Dorsett does take stupid penalties. If you look at his career numbers, you should know that isn't much of a surprise. But look at Dorsett's penalty minutes month by month -- as the year went on he became a more disciplined player (excluding that last game against Montreal where a whole buncha stupid shit broke out). Dorsett is a solid 4th line player who deserves a spot on this team, and Carcillo shouldn't be the one who knows him off the roster.
Also, to whoever said Carcillo has more "upside" than Dorsett. No. He doesn't.
At this point I'd rather have Klein paired with McD than Girardi. Klein seems to be pushing the puck into the offensive zone while still playing steady defense in the Rangers zone.

@KevinTheNYRBlog @leftwingbarbara Well let's remember that on Girardi's first attempted pass he somehow managed to completely whiff on the pass. Which is why Pouliot is streaking up the boards and McD is nowhere to be found as well. Since they assumed, Girardi being a professional who has recently received a nice extension, could make a simple pass.

@Crylanders Considering he won't be playing, it doesn't make much sense to do that.
