@johnAMIRANTESrug I just refreshed this page 5 times because I thought the comments weren't all loading. All I saw was "Look at the brightside Gentlemen..." and then white.... Haha

I've said it before but here it is again, I'm friends with Dorsetts cousin in LA. She told me Dorset and AV did not get along AT ALL. Combine that with the fact that Dorsett continually played over carcillo and I think it's safe to assume AV didn't like Carcillo either.
I think the only thing we understand about the Glass signing is AV and Sather just want players who know their role and shut the fuck up and do it this year. Carcillo, Boyle, Dorsett all refused to accept theirs. Too bad cause I'd take anyone of them over Glass.

Hate to break it to you Kev, but I'm friends with Dorsett's cousin who lives in LA. She says Dorsett and AV did not get along AT ALL. Add that to the fact that Dorsett STILL PLAYED OVER carcillo and methinks Carcillo isn't popular with the big man either. Don't think he'll be coming back. I really believe AV went after Glass because he believes Glass will know his role and stick to it. Not ask for more ice time, not complain, just do his job. Hopefully he does it better than we all expect.... oy

@Derek Stepan @AnnoyingJoe There's only one song they have to play
GRRR! Can Sather get a mulligan on that Girardi contract or what???
@AnnoyingJoe saw that the other day... too awesome
@Brukie_ @brian2686 @GiveGartneraCup Stralman has been the 2nd best d-man on this team since 2012. They should have realized that and taken the discount for Stralsy not being a brand name like G

@fs2020 @GiveGartneraCup I have thought Stralman has been the 2nd best defensemen on the team since 2012. Goes to show you, when it comes to handing out contracts, its all about the brand name and not the actual product.
I would have no problem with what happened yesterday, if not for that ridiculous contract Sather handed to Girardi during the season. Stralman would have saved the team 1 million annually and 2 years. Ridiculous.
Anyone else wish we didn't sign Girardi to that ridiculous contract now? Would have saved 1 million per by signing stralman and letting G walk....

I'm friends with Dorset's cousin (she lives here in LA). She told me on many occasions that Dorset and AV did not get along. guessing after the comments from Sather and the signing of Glass, Dorset was also pushing for an increased role on the team.
Think, as you said Kev, that is the real reason behind some of these moves.
Great article on Erhoff from buffalo blog: his advanced stats are incredible. Might be worth the money

@IhateGaborik @GiveGartneraCup @Derek Stepan He's not going to waive it for a team bidding in the top 5 of the draft

69 million cap ceiling... just reported
69 Million cap ceiling... just reported
@AnnoyingJoe @_Jack @IhateGaborik and like
@KevinTheNYRBlog @GiveGartneraCup Was trying to find video on youtube but it's nowhere... only Gregory Campbell
Kevin, you should mention that shift where Dorsett broke his leg on the penalty Kill and finished the shift. Heart and soul guy who never got the credit he deserved. Agree with the move for cap reasons but will definitely miss Dorsett!
@DP_Snotty @GiveGartneraCup Good to hear... glad to be talking hockey again. I'm in LA so I went into a cave after the event-that-will-not-be-mentioned happened
@DP_Snotty @StAlphonso DP! How you been! I stopped posting cause I thought it was bad luck when the Rangers went down 3 vs the Pens
@StAlphonso Ha, that's why I always ask... never confident enough to think I'm the one who reported something
@_Jack @GiveGartneraCup Cap space move me thinks
Anyone see yet???, Dorsett to Vancover
@Herman_NYRBlog @GiveGartneraCup Damn? You think it'd take that much? I thought maybe Staal... or Hags
Posted this yesterday and got to say it again, anyone look at the draft projections for the top 5? 4 are centermen!!!!
Big, fast, centermen.
With all this talk about teams needing to get deeper down the middle, would trading someone for a top 5 pick be the
smarter option rather than going after Statsny (heard they aren't inquiring though) or Spezza? Look how much
of an impact MacKinnon had on the AVs! I get that's a lot of
responsibility and MacKinnon may be more of an impact player than any pick in this year's draft, but you put a center between Nash and Kreider (two of
the best corsi players on the team and league) and you know those two will make up
for the defensive mistakes.
What's up fellas? Sorry I dropped off the planet. Stopped posting cause I thought it was bad luck after they went down 3 vs. the Pens....
Have to chime in on all the talk, anyone look at the draft projections for the top 5? 4 are centermen. Big, fast, centermen.

Just take a look at Justin Williams everytime he's on the bench to see what JR is talking about. Been saying it all year, AV needs to piss Nash off. Or his teammates need to do something in practice. Let Dorsett harass him. Get him angry.

Onyx has a message for the Rangers after their game 1 loss:
Kev... they already want to put an Asterisk next to the Rangers if they win. Cause LA is "warn out" even though they've only played one more game this post-season.
Awesome story Kevin!
Steve Levy picked the Rangers in 6! THATS ALL THAT FUCKING MATTERS!!!!
Also, Kev, if you watched the Hawks/Kings series the majority of Kings goals were off deflections in front of the net. Crawford is a much more aggressive goalie than hank. Not as aggressive as Quick, but still much more than Hank. Those deflections, with Hank deep in his net, shouldn't be as big a problem for him. As long as the Rangers can beat Quick, they'll be fine in this series.
Fellas... I have a confession. My avatar is GiveGartneraCup with his epic stache. But, in reality... I'm Tom Hanks.

@DP_Snotty @GiveGartneraCup @AnnoyingJoe Oh jesus. But that'd mean I'd have to give up the Stache pic. The stache is epic
Maybe "GiveGartneraCup.... andCally"
@AnnoyingJoe @DP_Snotty @GiveGartneraCup I can't help it! I can't chat with you guys during the game cause it's bad luck. So now I'm stuck just catching up on these posts. LGR!!!! WOOHOO. Hope the Kings win so I can try to go to a game. We'll see... heard ticket prices at MSG are starting at 1200 a pop
