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.

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.

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.

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...... :)

@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.
1 week, 6 days 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.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Rangers 3, Stars 2
@Kevin DeLury @PenaltySh0t @johnAMIRANTESrug As much as I would like to be, I don't believe that the Rangers are in win now mode.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Five or Six Teams Have Inquired About Del Zotto
@ChrisP I missed the first period due to DVR fluke but most of the game I watched belonged to the Kings. Looked like what we did to Montreal the night before. The Rangers came on at the end but too late.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Lundqvist Was Pissed After Last Night's Loss
@Kevin DeLury Ok, got it. I was being thick. Pretty sure Pouliot is on his wasy to the press box and not one of the top 3 lines... That said, how do you put someone who is criticized for being a defensive liability on the 4th line?
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Nash in Contact Jersey; Del Zotto Out, Talbot, Falk In vs, Canadiens
"If AV switched the centers on those lines I'd be a lot happier"
I'm confused - you want Brassard on the 4th line and Moore on the 3ed? Not sure I'm following your logic?
You mean they can't hear me yelling at my TV or jumping out of my chair and screaming when the Rangers score a goal and scaring my wife and daughter?
Since many "real" Rangers fans can't afford to go to the games anymore perhaps they need to have some kind of live feed from our homes to pipe in some cheering!
Took the family to the charity game in AC last year and had a blast. May go ahead and take in some games there when the season starts up. Just can't justify the cost of going to a Rangers game right now :(.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Death of Madison Square Garden?
I would think that as long as the team is competitive (and I think we are though certainly not elite) and has the tools to win that he should focus on getting a contract he can live with. The notion that he would focus on jumping to the team he thinks has the best chance to get a cup with is lame in my opinion. Hopefully he has more class than that and will focus on bringing his team the cup.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Sather to Talk Extension With Lundqvist Agent This Week
@mdeiron Would have been more of a point if you did not keep your mouth shut at the time of the trade. Easy to say that it would be better to have not made the trade now that the guy's career is in question. I'm still hoping for the best - perhaps he will come back strong for the end of the season.
1 month ago on "Status Quo" on Nash
@calithirteen @brian2686 Yes - lets use Crosby as the example and not Sauer/Lindros!
@Kevin DeLury @mlsranger Also, if the worst happens and he can't play then I would expect him to retire. We can hope that with enough rest he can get it back together like Crosby did. It took a long time but he is back and doing very well.
@brian2686 I'm beginning to understand. I'm thinking Boyle on the second line to help slow them down and they can take turns double shifting to slow down the third line. Only risk is that Boyle may make a good play and then boom - the lines get all egotistical again...
1 month ago on Callahan Returns Tonight vs. Ducks; Miller Scratched
@Melissa (blknblueshirts) @cardboardcllctr @JoshKaye
AV seems to be a big fan of the idea that Miller replaces Cally when hurt and Fast replaces Hags. Does not look like either player will have a chance other than filling in for injuries.
@DaveFL Not just Miller but Brassard too. It's like tying a boat ancher to the line.
IF Miller has to sit then I prefer:
@Rangers_54 I'm ok with Pyatt on the 4th line. Anywhere else is an injustice to the team and the fans. Also, Pyatt is not a PK guy - so hard to watch him lumbering around out there.
@shoot_the_goalie I think it is a great idea. It would have to go through the league (e.g. if any kind of suspension is given then that would be a minimum amount of games). I'd max it out at the rest of the season for a career ending injury. I bet people would be real sure to avoid head shots if they stood the chance of missing the rest of the season.
