@ChrisB13 @JMK8363 @wherewasi @MikeBlue If you notice his use on the PK is getting more limited and look at his TOI! He's not quite getting bickled but he's in Rupp territory....

@wherewasi @MikeBlue I agree we need grit and I loved the fact that Glass stood up for his teammates, but between his contract and apparent lack of ability to actually PLAY hockey I still have an issue with his signing. Tough guys need to be able to contribute in other ways and be viable hockey players as well as being tough. The days of a goon riding the pine for all but a couple of shifts is gone! Glass although like most tough guys appears to be a likable guy, but he is inarguably an anchor on the 4th line to the detriment of the team the vast majority of the time as evidenced by AV's utter lack of trust in rolling the 4th line in tough situations. Since Glass is here for the foreseeable future and will undoubtedly get ice time far in excess of his abilities - i TRULY hope he does well and helps the team win!
@NYRblogneill @JMK8363 I am signed up for this year, but may give that a try next season. Thanks!

GCL is great for allowing me to get the home feed although its usually @2+ min delayed so its essentially killed my ability to post during the game... oh and can someone PLEASE muzzle Michaletti - he is god awful!
Let's Go Rangers!!!

@betweentheworlds @J_CKfor30 @IhateGaborik @stevmore Giardi follows the long and illustrious line of delzaster and richie et al on the point.... can't keep the puck in the zone and gets beat so often you'd think he is a bongo drum. His patented D move is a snow angle... how many shots have deflected in off G?!?
A victim of the atrocious Glass contract...

@J_CKfor30 Thats like asking why Glass is in the lineup and why G gets PP time.... there is NO logical explanation!!

The josh we all know and love!
Yeah put Duclair on the top line and make sure he plays 20 min - he's our savior!
PP I like watching a monkey fuck a football!
Putrid effort all around! The centers are pathetic at the dot and the PP scheme is inherently flawed when it doesn't put a big body in the crease, doesn't shoot, can't win a face off with the top two centers on the first unit, and then relies on a 5'7" winger as the 2nd unit center. Anyone remember last season when the second unit was more effective than the first... Now it's just a place holder to let the first get a breather.
The D started off ok, but in the second and third seemed to struggle exiting the zone yet again. Not sure if it's just too predictable or simply bad execution my money's on the latter. A lot of sloppy passing and bad / failed entry attempts didn't help. As Neil said its a recipe for a glass sighting Monday.... Maybe AV takes the muzzle off and actually lets glass fight... Shitsburgh has plenty of deserving recipients! JT has been noticeable I wonder if fast or stemp get the hook, or does AV try sitting Kreider or Zucc to jumpstart them?!?
Enough of this half assed crap - LET'S GO RANGERS!!!
@betweentheworlds I think AV is trying to jumpstart Kreider and Zucc as well as spreading the scoring. Yet on the PP essentially all the eggs in one basket for the 1st unit... I agree flipping Nash and Kreider makes sense!

@gravey94 @J_CKfor30 He deters AV from playing the 4th line...

@J_CKfor30 @JMK8363 I am absolutely being sentimental, but with his team friendly contracts and his abilities I am surprised that anyone would be looking at moving him. That being said I get it is a business, but do you really believe that Slats could get Eberle for MZA?!?
It would be utterly heartbreaking to see MZA traded!!! Zucca is such a positive team first player and he has the potential to grow into an MSL type that I think it would be a huge mistake to move him! MZA - FTW!!!
@Gorangers0525 @J_CKfor30 just sucks that there is such a double standard... all the youngsters have earn their ice time or get benched... Glass contributes little to nothing gets paid more and gets a pass regardless how badly he plays!
@ATCRyan @IhateGaborik @fs2020 ummm I am pretty sure Zucc has been quite accommodating has has taken team friendly deals several times now...
Put Glass on LTIR! Oh wait that only helps in the short term... Hopefully J Moore will rectify the rectal cranial inversion he has been suffering with most of this season and allow Slats to move Staal!

@rangermom Realistically most of the team - there are VERY few that can genuinely say they have showed up every game... They have had the wake up calls now several times and it is HIGH time that the players start taking accountability and lifting their compete level! Goals and points will come, but the general malaise and lack of effort on a nightly basis is infuriating. The executing HAS to improve across the board - go back to basics... try winning a few face offs, a clean pass or two, and SHOOT especially places other than directly into the goalies stomach / catching glove.

@J_CKfor30 He should absolutely be on the top line playing against guys like Stamkos and Crybaby... Seriously??? He has great potential and with sheltered TOI and against 3rd lines he has a MUCH better chance to acclimate and succeed! Do you really think he can hang with Lucic, Backes, Getzlaf et al? or will he simply cough up goals and potentially get hurt... I hope he gets to play in the WJC - a great break and allowing him a chance to really shine and build some confidence!
@johnnyb3910 @J_CKfor30 ZUCC!!!

Lets hope JT can show some consistency and Kreider can start focusing on the game. Always tough when you have family issues to be dealing with - no matter what you're doing short of life or death type situations family comes first!
@Gorangers0525 he's like luggage that you can't get rid off...

@IcyCup Maybe someone can get Avery to throw glasses skates in the hudson?!?
Can we please, please, please, pretty please NEVER see Girardi on the PP again?!?
@J_CKfor30 PK is more dangerous than PP

@J_CKfor30 @AnnoyingJoe You thinking what I am thinking? Yeah LUNCH!
@J_CKfor30 1st got lucky on the one goal but looked awful today!
@J_CKfor30 Hopefully that means a Kreider bomb sighting and a hatty!!
@betweentheworlds I suspect its because the game is against philthadelphia and is likely to be a chippy. AV has been up front about not playing The Duke every night - he's not used to the physicality or the tempo of the NHL and needs to be eased into it. The last thing he needs is to get hurt playing a physical game.

@betweentheworlds Who on earth would take especially at that ridiculous salary?!?
@stRangers fan @JMK8363 And the TROLL is back...
Watching on Game Center Live (on an iTV) I get a 2+ minute delay so I have been absent for the most part from the ongoing chirping during the game. That being said I am enjoying getting the Rangers home feed although Michaletti is bordering on the NBC crew for being annoying...
So another Jekyll & Hyde performance with way too many passengers.
Can someone start practicing face-offs?!?
Kreider is a shell of himself
Glass may have a place and provide something, but his contract is absolutely laughable!!!
Staal is showing why a long term contract for BIG money will bite one way or another.
G, just think only five more years.... :(
J Moore fighting for 7th spot / trade bait
3rd line starting to gel!
oh and can the four blind mice at least PRETEND to call a game equitably?!?
@60sPsychJukebox @cb1 @DP_Snotty they can't even get the names right....

Bet #3 which hab takes a cheapshot and doesn't get called?!?
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/
Bet #2 does Kreider have to cross the red line or the blue line to be called for goalie interference?!?
So the bet is which hab dives first?!?
@J_CKfor30 the atrocious reffing certainly didn't help us!!! How many missed calls, phantom calls and failure to enforce rules? Did LA win ANY face-offs without cheating?!?

@brian2686 Only thing consistent about the refs is they're inconsistent - they can't even call a period evenly let alone a game!
Milbury is such an ASS! Awesome zinger by Bob!
@J_CKfor30 Lets hope they show up with some killer instinct! LGR!
Wow where to start... amazing to see the Jeckle & Hyde performances. Lines all looked solid and it appeared that although we still make mediocre goalies look good we are hopefully starting to get a full performance from everyone. Really nice to finally see the 3rd & 4th lines buzzing.
Boyle really starting to look good on the PP; first unit is looking good second is struggling, but hopefully Mac will solve some of that.
Kreider suffering from a wicked case of the Hags!
Zucc still snake bitten, but playing a solid 200ft game
Brass on juice? Have the Rangers training staff been adding something to his Wheaties? He's looking bigger stronger and maybe even a little meaner - definitely playing a solid #2C.
Amazing how good clean zone exits lead to offense
