I understand the older guys and family men prefering to spend time anywhere than on the ice in NY, but the young guys and the new guys you'd think would want to do what Hayes said: meet the staff, get used to the facility, and meet a few of the team so as to become better acclimated prior to the stresses of training camp.

@Josh-CK @IhateGaborik Nash should be on the left of either Step - MSL or Brass - Zucc!

@Josh-CK only concern is the defensive responsibilities of the 3rd line....

I agree he's made some good moves recently, but is it a case of a blind squirrel getting lucky, or has he finally learned how to do his job?!? How many years of his tenure in NY can you honestly say slats has done a good job?
Kevin - where is all this slats love coming from?!?
We can only hope!

Welcome - that's what I remembered, but I couldn't recall if it had ever been proven...
LMAO - I know that back in the day there was a difference in the feel / stickiness between white and black stick tape although these days I would assume its cosmetic. The pads contrast between light and dark gives the optical illusion of being open when it's not and was initially used to confuse shooters for the 5 hole or at least that's what my old goalie told me back in the dark ages... With all the experts on everything I am a bit shocked that Hank doesn't have some hi tech camouflage company helping do some sort of mind meld to psych out the opposing shooters!
What are the optical implications - there used to be a lot of talk about how various shapes / colors deceived or tempted teams to shoot at the pads thinking there was a gap there wasn't?
Hmm interesting... I thought that everyone was all caught up in having MSL on a line with a right handed shot? I think our only top 6 or likely top 9 right handed shot is step... I think that even in a slow decline MSL is still our biggest scoring threat and should be given the support to continue as such. Nash is a power forward when he plays up to his potential, but I believe MSL is more likely to be our scoring leader this season. Wouldn't allowing Nash to move back to his prefered LW spot also hopefully help jump start his confidence? Who do you suggest centering for a hags MSL line? Brass has show chemistry in the past with Nash and since MSL and Zucc are such similar players I am sure that they should click. Zucc has shown an uncanny ability to be effective with any line he's been on, but do you think splitting him from brass makes sense with the sustained chemistry that they have shown? Obviously all hypothesis, but it will be interesting to see if av opts for a more traditional line break down or tries to recreate the somewhat more balanced approach of last season.
Agree we don't want the midget line reunited - too easy for them to get out muscled. That being said I would flip Kreider and Nash, but otherwise good lines and unless Kreider struggles hags will be a 3rd liner.
@MidwestNYR Agree completely!
Nash - Step - MSL
Kreider - Brass - Zucc
Hags - JT - Stempniak
Glass - Dom - Fast
@KevinTheNYRBlog @JMK8363 @gravey94 would have been 11-12 season when I first found the blog.... I just remember it was the boggiest man crush I had ever seen for a no name....
@KevinTheNYRBlog @JMK8363 Oh I am hoping too... just not seeing anything to warrant the money let alone the term. That being said I was skeptical of Arneil, poops, car bomb etc last year so hopefully the brain trust actually does know hockey better than the armchair coaches! LGR!!!
@KevinTheNYRBlog @gravey94 there was definitely someone else before mash and after avery... major man crush, but I can't recall who it was
Ok just to start the day off... In what world is Tanner Glass is an upgrade, cost savings, short term fix - seriously WTF?!?
I suspect that he will sign in January for a pre agreed upon amount that will likely be significantly lower than if he were to wait until free agency. Zucca rules!!!

I've been suggesting for a while that having MSL on the top line makes more sense as he is likely to work better with step a right handed shot and hopefully jumpstart Nash in the process. Kreider actually fits in much better with brass and Zucc and adds both much needed size as well as finish ability. Zucc plays both wings and although listed as a LW played most of last season as a RW.
MZA showing professional athletes how to act the world over! Zucca - FTW - LGR!!!
If brass gets over 5 it is criminal!
Mats André Zuccarello Aasen is my hero - FTW!!!
Brass is going to need to step up big as a true number two center, but production wise I agree although only one full season MZA still deserves more than brass.

Even if the new Boyle turns out to be a boil on slats ass at least it's only a two year deal! Slats is clearly looking at signing our RFAs and although I am sure he will low ball and try to force bridge deals etc hopefully they will be the core of the team for years to come. All we have to worry about is some big time wheeling and dealing to TRADE for an aging over the hill over paid marquee player to try and make Nash look good... LGR!
Why on earth would we sign glass for 3 and Dom for two?!?
I agree that Kreider is improving and will be a top line winger; however, I disagree that MSL has declined to a second line player. He still puts up far more points than Nash is likely to ever put up and although declineing he is still more dangerous than Nash. Also with his playmaking ability hopefully he can jumpstart Nash and make him more than a overpaid pk'er! Keeping Nash on the top line with step and Kreider and and having MSL play with who JT, Lindberg, (Dom or boiler if they are still here), or do you suggest breaking up MZA and brass? As of now we don't have a viable 2/3 playmaking center. Unless we get a viable playmaking center having MSL play with anyone other than our top center seems like a waste of talent! Dom filled in well on a temp basis, but he and at this point any of the other possible centers in the system leave something to be desired.

I think that poops although he has his downsides (stupid penalties) still has tremendous upside in the short term and a 2-3 year deal at a slightly lower cap hit say 2-2.5 could be a real bargain. That being said I would like to see Kreider step into that line as a true second line and have MSL on the top line where he belongs!
Ritchie getting almost two minutes on pp was mind boggling - HUGE liability and exemplified arniels inability to adapt!
