@MikeSML An early playoff exit will at least save us a 1st round pick...

@NYrangers79 @gravey94 That is assuming he takes the 6m which he apparently does not think is enough.
4 days, 22 hours ago on Rangers Decline Callahan's Six-Year, $6.3 Million Per Year Proposal
Just adding another 2 cents to agree with all that say Cally for 6 years at 6mil is not a good deal for us and hope he does not take it. Kind of shocked he does not jump all over it but I guess GMs do silly things in the FA market. I wish him luck.
So upset about Zuke. As much as I've enjoyed watching the games, this is exactly why I did not want the NHL to shutdown for the Olympics. He has been one of our best players going into the break and the team has been on a roll. Hope they can keep it going after the break but very concerned. It is just too much time away from the team. I feel terrible for Islander fans. That is the ultimate example of why this tournament should not happen during the season. I'm with the folks who suggested that hockey move to the summer Olympics. It would be absolutely awesome to get some hockey during the off season and folks would have time to heal.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Zuccarello To Miss 1-2 Weeks of Games; Staal Misses Practice With Back Spasms
Argh! Not that there was a lot of doubt of the outcome but I guess I don't need to watch my recording of the Sweden game. :( Will have to stop checking the blog on game days I guess.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Zuccarello Has Small Fracture in Left Hand
Yup - suspect we are a seller in this case so from Slats perspective he would want to get it done.
1 month ago on Callahan Back on Power Play; Talbot to Start Tonight
@gravey94 I would think that we would be more apt to get a trade done before the break because of the risk of injury during the Olympics eliminating trade value.
@shoot_the_goalie @gravey94@Kevin DeLury
Why do we have to bring up Leech! Still furious about that! No forgiveness is possible! Fire Sather!
1 month ago on Callahan/Rangers Still Not Closer To Deal After Both Sides Talk
Agreed on Moore. He seemed pretty excited to be back on the left side during his interview and it showed in his play. Trying to create offense with DZ out there was scary at best I suspect. Now it is clearly his job to provide offense and he can expect his back to be covered. Should be fun! Also would not be surprised to see DZ find his game in Nashville. Also agree that he was pretty much done here.
1 month, 1 week ago on Del Zotto Mistake Free In First Game With Preds
You mean if they don't play in NY?
Seems that Kreids gets a bunch of these non-call calls.
I don't want him to loose the edge to his game so would rather he keep up what he is doing and hope the officials wake the @#$ up. Hope the coaches are saying not to worry about it.
1 month, 4 weeks ago on Kreider Leads Calder Race at Mid Season; Won't Be Suspended
I think it should have been 2mins. 5mins would have been bad luck. Getting kicked out of the game was wrong. Perhaps if he had not slowed down it would have made sense.

Why are the Jets looking to move Kane? Or is this just about people asking and them saying nothing is impossible if you are stupid enough?
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Rangers Making Inquires About Evander Kane?
@johnnyb3910 I hated the whole Olympic thing at the beginning of the season but now am looking forward to seeing some passionate hockey. Suspect we will want a break from this team... Hate to say it but...
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Predators 3, Rangers 1 (Callahan Out 4-6 Weeks)
I can't help,thinking about a certain NY quarterback that makes like 20% of the teams salary cap leaving not enough money to build a championship team around him. Hope that does not turn out to be the case with Hank and understand it is a business but concerned about the future.
3 months ago on Lundqvist to Be Extended for 7 Years, $8+ Million Per
Interesting. Before the season I thought it was rubbish but based on how things have gone... That said, not sure his five hole has been the issue so the pads may not be a factor.
3 months ago on Nothing Going On With Callahan Extension
I don't want another Clowe (so upset about that waste of draft picks). Unless we are really fighting for the cup (not holding my breath) giving away our future for a guy who will play a handful of games for us makes no sense to me.
3 months, 1 week ago on Rangers Could Make Trade Deadline Push for Cammalleri; Rangers Talk Del Zotto With Leafs
He will be on the 3ed line when he is ready. Suspect AV is concerned that the line has too much speed and needs to be slowed down. He would move Boyle up but the 4th line is playing too well so best way to slow them down is to put in Pyatt. You are getting slleeeeepppyyyy...... :)
3 months, 1 week ago on Pyatt Joins Team in Tampa; Will Miller Be Assigned to Hartford?
@ivanricov @gravey94 I wish hockey was moved to the summer olympics :) Don't like it messing with the NHL season. Last Olympic year was catastrophic for the Rangers. Jagr got hurt with his pretend helmet and Hank got burnt out. I don't think that the team ever recovered that year.
3 months, 1 week ago on Rest Now, Could Lead to Success for Lundqvist, Rangers Later
Watching the DZ pinch play I'm not 100% sure it is all on him. Bras has to make the read that DZ is pinching and fall back. DZ went to the man first and then Brass followed so both of them went to the same man. Granted if he plays it conservative and does not pinch then the play does not happen but sitting back can also loose the game. In hindsight obviously don't want him to pinch but I've certainly seen worse play from him.
