6 months ago on Boomer Esiason Hints At Potentially Imminent Trade ; Let's Speculate
My initial thought was hartnell. That would be tough to see, and tougher not to root for girardi to pound him again every time he's on the ice.
back spasms are the worst

Well done. One question though, how do you watch wolfpack games?
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Ranking The New York Rangers' Top 25 Prospects: January 2013
I'm usually pretty optimistic, but I'm losing faith in this team. Idk who to blame; is it AV's system or is every player except zucc regressing? Dorsett, cally, boyle, d moore, girardi, McD, and staal used to take the body every chance they got; now they all look lile neutered dogs out there. The only person hitting anyone is kreider. And what does he get for it? Benched most third periods and overtime. This team has gon the way of the jets and mets. There is no direction and the gears don't mesh, no one is on the same page and it's very evident. Like I said earlier, I don't know whether it's the players, coach, or both, but something's gotta give, and sooner rather than later. Hopefully.
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Penguins 5, Rangers 2 (Dorsett Out 4-6 Weeks With Broken Fibula)
If zuccarello were 6'2 215 with his skill set he'd be in the conversation with some of the top guys the way he is playing right now. And he'd probably fight EVERYONE, fiesty little bastard he is.
8 months ago on Rangers Playing With More Desperation & Emotion
I wouldn't say falk has been great. He's been good for what he's expected to do, which isn't anything Mcilrath can't do. He needs to be given time to familiarize himself with his teammates and he needs to play on a steady pairing. If he doesn't get any better after 5 games then send him down, bit we need to see what he's got.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers 4, Flames 3, SO
The only thing more terrible is NHL tonight. They just interviewed pouliot and asked if he's getting used to the garden again after the billion dollar renovation. You'd think someone there would know this is his first year with the rangers...
I don't see any reason not to play Mcilrath over falk, it's not like falk is a great defender anyway. At this point we need somebody on this team that can smile after getting pummeled. Assuming, of course, he got a few good shots in too.
That being said, I would ve surprised if he refused to sign a 4 year deal. He's a smart guy who wants to win in his home state.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Callahan Has Had A Plethora of Injuries
The thing that makes it even harder to see is that they are all traumatic injuries. It's not a nagging hamstring, his shoulder was ripped out of the socket, blocked a 100+ mph slapshot, etc. He's just got really, really bad luck combined with ballsthe size of grapefruits, which is not good for llongevity.
Just bought my tickets
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers Recall McIlrath
@Kevin DeLury soon teams aren't even going to have a starter and a backup. it will be the starter and the rangers starter
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Staal Has Concussion; Dorsett, Asham In; Pyatt, Pouliot Out; Lundqvist Starts
If that's the 4th line he goes with, he's gotta give them big minutes in the first half of the first period. Hard forecheck, hit everything in sight, wear them down and set the tone for guys like cally, boyle, and kreider to follow suit. And don't forget asham has a pretty wicked wrister so I can see them getting a little scrappy offense from the garbage areas.
If they like the way Mcilrath is developing I don't think they'll make a move for anyone. Maybe a waiver claim on someone to hold as a healthy scratch but they definitely shouldn't trade anyone other than pyatt or pouliot for an enforcer.
8 months, 4 weeks ago on Dorsett Is Starting To Fill Prust Role
Everyone loves the backup. Until he becomes the startee. Then everyone loves the backup again. Look at the jets. How did McElroy work out? Same with Talbot. He's a great backup but there is a reason he's not a NHL starter . We're not watching practice every day, we're notexperts, we don do this for a living. If you think Talbot is the long term solution to winning a Stanley Cup, you're delusional.
9 months ago on Rangers 5, Canucks 2
I don't hate them. It looks like they tried to make a contemporary version of the winter classic jersey. I'll probably buy one once they're on clearance at modells honestly.
9 months, 1 week ago on Do Rangers Stadium Series Shirts Give Insight Into Jersey Design?
Lundqvist was good tonight but rask was STELLAR. What are you gonna do? If they keep playing like that I am confident they'll start winning again soon

Can we please get rid of pouliot and falk now?
10 months, 2 weeks ago on FINAL: Rangers 2, Capitals 0
I think it was a good move, however I can't judge it completely until I see what he does next. I think he's making mistakes with the roster and we'll see how he fills these slots
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Was Waiving Biron, Asham Done to Send a Message?
He's definitely been a help offensively but he's so slow he's a defensive liability. He has no legs left.

There have to be guys on HGH but I can't imagine anyone using anabolic steroids and playing hockey. I'm sure there's stuff guys are using that are either not illegal yet or we've never heard of.

As a chef myself, I totally agree about the chopped points except for one minor detail, zakarian was abad example because he currently has a multimillion dollar class action lawsuit against t him for basically being the world's biggest douche to his employees. As far as zuccarello, I think a one e year deal is the best thing for him. Zmaybe next year he'll get offered a big contract somewhere a la prust, not that I want to see him go.

C'est la vie. Such is life. Shit happens. Got beat by abetter, more cohesive team. What are you gonna do? I'm looking forward to seeing what the offseason brings, and hopefully dseeing some homegrown talent like miller and Thomas up on the big boy squad next year. Got some big decisions ahead, hopefully we canmmove forward quickly and my heart will regain it's usual rhythm.

Jobs could be riding on effort alone tonight, so hopefully that will motivate them enough to see some passion.
1 year, 3 months ago on Why Not Us?
Kreider was really good tonight. Bruins are a better team right now. On a separate note, these NBC announcers are killing me. They're so bad I might jyst listen to the radio broadcast even if they're not synfed
1 year, 3 months ago on Bruins 2, Rangers 1
Actually I just checked and that's incorrect, they lost one in OT while leading in hits. My mistake.
1 year, 3 months ago on Lundqvist: I Can't Score in OT
this postseason the Rangers have won every game in which they lead in hits, and lost every game they don't. Just sayin.
I love his interviews with francesa. I feel like he's more candid because he knows how knowledgeable mike is about sports and coaching in general, though not hockey, and he knows he's not going to get any stupid questions. In the press conferences there's always a few idiots and I'm sure he gets sick of some of the beatguys after sseeing them every day.
1 year, 3 months ago on Audio: Torts Talks Game 7 Win, Previews Bruins Series
I think the NHL will handle this appropriately. I'd be surprised if this actually made it to court, and the NHL will probably start keeping a closer eye on pain meds for players. Also wouldn't be surprised to see a campaign to raise awareness for prescription drug addiction or a foundation for ex-players with addiction issues.

I think the giveaway right in front of the net is what made him rethink the decision to play. He looked fine after the big hit so hopefully he'll be back soon.
1 year, 3 months ago on Staal Pulled Himself From The Line-up
Danny G will be able to shut him down. Don't let ovi go around hitting anything that moves, and knock him onhis ass whenever possible. Plus we have arguably the best 1 on 1 and 2on 1 defenseman inthe league, who has made a living shutting him down, in marc staal, who I'm sure will be actively involved with girardi and mcd until he's ready to come back.
