Only benefit would be if NHL stays out of the Olympics and allows amateurs to play as they should!

So did I miss anything with the skills competition- did everyone show up or more importantly were the hangovers under control? Who cried uncle when the canon fired?!?

@nasoov I know he wants north of 5 for 4-5, but I am REALLY hoping he'll take 4.5-4.75 for 5!!!
MZA - FTW!!!

Yeah, no defensive liability there....

Might also be worth flipping Nash and Kreider on lines as well. Then step and Nash are same line for all situations: 5 on 5, PK, and PP. Lineup starting to show some holes and a shakeup might help. Might also put hags with Dom and JT.
Trade Zucc for lucic....
Neill not sure if anyone else is having issues but the candy crush game bug seems to be back...
Great to see Kreider showing up let's hope it's a regular occurrence! He can be a game changer!
D a bit sloppy but hung on.
PP is looking really out of whack. The overloaded 1st unit and the after thought 2nd each have significant issues! The fact that 5 professional hockey players can't figure out how to maximize a delayed call on the pp is ridiculous- quit cycling the puck 5 on 4 and go to the 5 on 3! Oh and what a wasted opportunity the 5 on 3 is a cluster! Obviously that concept as well as zone entries aren't practiced much... The God awful drop passes and dump ins that lead to wasted time are just plane grotesque. Novel concept carry the puck into the zone and don't pass it 6" to the guy next to you as you cross the blue line! I also have to really question the usage of of some of the players and yes I get there is flow and positions change during play but having Nash buried where he can't shoot? Zucc as the screen? G on the point? Who thinks these are good ideas?!?
The balanced lines have been working overall but it is becoming apparent that AV is having to shorten his bench too often - maybe time for some line shake ups?!?
Ok rant over - LGR!!!
Hey Josh i think hags got it...

@KevinMccarthy at least it went almost on net... he normally suffers from the delzaster....
@JustinRP37 Pride of Nashville?
G trying to put one in our net...
@J_CKfor30 Who's the baby daddy?!?
@J_CKfor30 You hate on everyone, but the incessant berating of our team is REALLY fucking annoying regardless of who your dedicated whipping boy is!!!
Miller stepping it up
Stone been making the D look foolish all night
Josh hating on the Rangers players for not all being 50 goal scorers!
Michelliti really is challenged isn't he?!? Poster child for Dannys kids!
Really hate the PP units currently - overload the top unit and have it look like shit?!? WTF!
GCL fucking SUCKS ASS!!!
Neill, anyone else having issues with the candy crush bullshit again?!?
Put the little shits to work!!!
He must be playing with his pp cause he isn't doing shit for the team!!!
Can someone please explain how in the world G is still getting PP time?!? WTF!!!
Did you have beans for lunch - don't forget to leave them a nice steamy upper decker!
We should negotiate over a frosty cold adult beverage or twelve!
Neill, I would think Dom's ability to provide stability regardless of wingmen and his face-off prowess has been invaluable and would equate to a higher rating!

Gee last year it was our D protecting and making hank look good... How would he do without his D blocking all the shots?!?
Sadly we do overvalue grit.... Can you say Mcllrath?!? Not to mention the overpayment of Glass...

And declining each year....
I agree Zucc has shown the willingness to take team friendly deals and as much as he will probably deserve more I am still holding out hope that something can be worked out! Especially since the people already penciling Duke and Buch etc in as starters next year are likely in for a shock! MSL is slowing down where the upside and versatility of MZA make him more valuable long term!
I am a huge Zucc fan (shocker I know) and as much as I hate the possibility of him leaving you make some really good points!! I still hold out hope that slats will work some magic and keep MZA in the fold!!! LGR!!!
All the prognosticating and armchair GM'ing is certainly entertaining although it seems to ruffle a few feathers and can often get nonsensical... Everyone clearly has their own idea of what OUR team (yes, we all support the same team and want it to succeed!) should do with its assets, but lest we forget this ISNT fantasy and no matter what any of us think we have NO impact on what the team does with its assets! Proposing trades can be fun: Glass for Kopitar sound fair right?!? The Rangers are playing well and we should all savor what we have! We all have our favorite players and our whipping boys, but try to appreciate ALL our players because they are trying to win in a Rangers uniform! Can we improve, absolutely, can our players have a bigger impact or better stats sure, but enjoy what we have for the time being and look forward to another GREAT year of Rangers hockey!
LET'S GO RANGERS!!!
PS Thanks again Neill for keeping the blog going!
Such a practical rational thought process!

Challenging the habs for the diving title?!?
Cant we all just get along?!? LGR!!
Glass doesn't need to be, nor should he be, in every game but he is valuable against certain teams as long as he plays smart!

For all the hate glass gets he's played solid since sitting! Personally I find the contract offensive not the player. AV's use of glass early was also questionable, but he is a role player and in that role an asset to the team!
Glad to see Hayes actually starting to take the body!

Well you are predictable....
Josh having a busy night hating on our players...
Yes, "Fuck The World" although I've heard some are PC and say "For The Win." Personally I am NOT PC!
