Hey, no dissing Neill... he's doing a great job... and besides any dude who looks like Rick Nash should get the benefit of the doubt!  Keep up the good work Rick, errrr Neill!  ;-)

@Wallace1 Absolutely.... it is a very good move for us.... Yandle raises everyone's play on our team... suddenly the weight of the world is NOT on McDonagh's shoulders... expect to see him have a great game tonight, if Yandle plays.

@dsclaw88 I don't know that much about Yandle except what I saw the two times we just played Phoenix and frankly, this guy was their best player by far.... he controlled their game... "Yandle this, Yandle that, Yandle Yandle Yandle..."  he was all over the place for them!  I suspect he will make everyone on our team play better.... just what we need!  With him and a rejuvenated Boyle.... our defense is suddenly VERY DANGEROUS.

Yandle... makes sense... Sheppard... makes sense.... Klingberg?!  Who is this guy?? Stemp had at least some pedigree... Klingberg seriously is he a Euro soccer player??!!

Tell us more about the Stemp trade?  Who is this Klingberg?  Is he a Klignon?!  I've never heard of him... I wonder why we traded a guy who just potted two goals a couple of days ago for an alien from a different planet?  Who is this guy? lols

If as advertised - and that is a big if - Yandle will make everyone better.... I'd like to see some more assists to everyone, especially Nash so he can catch Ovechkin for lead in goals!

I thought we might try to add Chris Stewart... this is classic Sather..... one tough guy at this time of year.... remember John Scott at this time a few years back....

@KevinMccarthy  That is a shocker.... I always liked Duclair and I wish him well.... he struck me as being a bit "light" and needs to put some muscle on to take the rigors of the NHL... but other than that, he looked like a fine prospect!

@joksekim80  Me too... I hope Yandle ignites Boyle.... when Boyle is at the top of his game, man he see the ice well and he can play.... he is a top D-man, WHEN HE IS AT THE TOP OF HIS GAME....

Well, here we are... Monday morning... about 8:00am... less than 16 hours before the trade deadline.... our last chance to upgrade for the Cup run.... who do we need?  I'm surprised Sather did not trade for a guy like Chris Stewart.... remember he acquired John Scott because: "At this time of year, things get a bit crazy and you need a guy like Scott" ... well, maybe Sather feels the game has changed and Miller and Shepp are tough enough in front.... Are we now ready for the final push, then four seven game series? lols... remember those days with Torts?  Jesus.... three series going seven games.... unbelievable... dreadfully tiring...

@SmellyKisio He's a good man, but he's been looking a bit lethargic.... does not seem to have the quickness of early years.... gets sick hurt a bit more.... slower to recover.... just old age catching up to him....

@Wallace1 My respect for Zucc went up after this transaction.... he probably told his agent... "fuck it... for half a mil, I'd rather be a Ranger and have the bright city lights then get stuck in Winnepeg!!!"

@Medvjed004 Yandle.... Duclair.... win win.... as Phoenix pairs Duclair with Domi for chemistry and long term investment... we are going for the Cup this year....

Sleep tight!  Decent day of trades for us.... now we have a true stud offensive defenseman who more than offsets the Stralman loss... we are headed to the Cup again!!!!!

... and if Yandle can ignite Boyle for a Last Hurrah, then watch out Islanders, Tampa... we'll be looking out our rearview mirror at you soon!!!!!

@KevinMccarthy  Fantastic... and frankly, Zucc at $4.5 million is an honorable price.... and if he lights it up even more next year, then pay him more!!!

@BobDunne  Not a scientific observation... but the way Yandle has played against us.... if he plays that way when he is playing FOR us.... then great trade!!!

@GiveGartneraCup @JoeyKocur  ..... I won't diss either, because no one is perfect... pariring them might be a mistake, but I can see Yandle with Klein as a killer pair.

@wherewasi @JoeyKocur  Agreed... Having Yandle and an inspired Boyle on the blue lines totally transforms our back line.

@wherewasi @GiveGartneraCup  I'm bullish on Yandle.... Man, if Yandle inspires Boyle and Boyle plays the type of hockey he is capable of, we will have an explosive team.... do not count out this trade... Obviously we are doing it for the present.... not a bad move at all by Sather.

21 hours, 21 minutes ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/

@GiveGartneraCup   Agree.... Boyle and Yandle are clones... but Yandle is only 28 years old which is a HUGE difference.... Yandle reminds me of a modern day James Patrick who can see the ice better...  he skates like Stralman... a very strong skater.... Boyle is also good... but he has had a sketchy year... gives the puck away a bit more because of age?  Yandlle handles the puck better these days.

@wherewasi @JoeyKocur  I have always admired Boyle and Yandle for that matter... they remind me of each other... just total ice "generalmanship...."

But Boyle has not had a stellar season... to me, he has had a down year... imagine if he rebounds and has the type of year he is capable of, paired with Yandle?  We would be very tough in the playoffs... really competitive.

@Zelrio @JoeyKocur  Boyle is outstanding when playing up to his potential.... but if you cared to read the posts and watch the last game, which obviously you did not in favor of Sesame Street, you would have seen a very poor performance from Dan Boyle....

Keith Yandle should be the defenseman that Dan Boyle was projected to be.... I hope Boyle just had a down year and into the playoffs he plays up to his potential... frankly, with a solid Dan Boyle and a solid Keith Yandle on defense... we are a very dangerous team... both Yandle and Boyle have the potential to be killer defensemen....

@TheKing @JoeyKocur  How do you know?  He is just coming into his own.... I have the DEEPEST respect for Marty St. Louis, I think he was one of the most dangerous players ever..... so it is a compliment that I believe Zucc can aspire to be him... no need to get defensive about St. Louis legendary status.

Zuccarello signing with New York Rangers!  EXCELLENT!!!!!  He is a key part of our future... a very dangerous weapon... a younger, modern version of Marty St. Louis.... we need this type of weapon in our arsenal... we just don't need four players that are all the same!!!  We got the best one signed....

@Picaz77  I'll probably be putting my foot in my mouth, but while Yandle is older, I like the pick up.... if you want a guy who is a younger version of Dan Boyle style - ice general, knows what to do with the puck, then Yandle is the man.... now I am not an expert, but my conclusion is based on watching him play extremely well in the last two games Phoenix played against us....

@GiveGartneraCup @Zelrio @JoeyKocur   If what you say is true, then I'm for it... this is the "piece" we needed, right?  We are going to go for the Cup NOW and we can't have any weak links... do you think this was a good deal?

Duke: Wow, he ate up the minors... but that does not mean he will thrive in the NHL... at least, this is the risk we take in dealing him.... I am not in a position to look into my crystal ball and say we fucked this one up or not... all I can say is that Yandle will help us, based on how I've watched him play... we want the Cup NOW!!!!
