@NYRBlueBlog Did you really just get on someone else's blog and call it a joke??? First of all, why are you here?? Second, why are criticizing another blog?? Just go back to your own blog. I may happen to agree with some of what you said, but the mere fact that you are here calling this blog "a joke", really casts aspersions on your credibility. Disagreeing is one thing, but disrespecting is something completely different. It would be like going into someone's house and telling them you don't like the decor. Just don't come in if you don't like it.

@TheNYRBlog @Rachel2886 Girardi was so polite there asking Mr. Carcillo if he'd like an ice pack for his hand.

@mando24179 IMO, it's not the coach. Last year Vancouver was 7th in the league in fighting majors, the Rangers were 14th! People want to blame AV for the poor defense? Last year, Vancouver gave up 93 goals with Luongo in net, the Rangers, under that defense-first system, with the Vezina candidate in net, gave up 101. Do you remember how we used to complain about how Tortorella didn't want them to fight? (last year, not two years ago). It's not the coach, it's the players. Same players that had no fight last year either.

I'm pretty sure all of the other team's scouts and GMs know exactly what DZ's misgivings are. So, AV is pretty much just stating the obvious. He falls into the category of a player with unfulfilled potential (like many other players). The real question is, does another team want to take a chance that he will raise his game to the level of his potential? If they do, we have a deal. If not, he's ours to keep and hope he gets his game together.

Looks like the same person may have designed those God-awful Team USA Olympic jerseys.

Who was talking to Hags behind the bench after the goal? It looked like he was trying to tell him something and Hags gave it that "yeah, but I scored, right?" look. Sort of like when a guy runs past the stop sign at third but scores anyway.

Not sure why Edmonton would want to be messing around with MDZ when they don't have a quality goalie that cover up for the defensive mistakes he makes. Word out of Toronto is they are working on a deal for Reimer. I see that one flying before the MDZ, Miller deal.

@capncally1978 @shishya100 More likely that Pyatt and Sather are an item. Tortorella never sat him either.

Regarding the Powerplay. To put this stat in perspective. Last year's PP was on pace to get 41 PP goals if the season was a full one. In 2012, the team got 44 PP goals. This year's team is on pace to get 55! That would have been good for the 7th highest total in the last full season! Is Mike Sulivan far enough away in Vancouver?

I must admit, it was a little awkward reading about how you had a little extra juice watching Mashinter's insertion Kevin. :)

I want some of what Trautwig was drinking before that interview. First, he almost turned it over to himself, then he goes on this what's your momma do for you line of questioning. At one point Zucc gave him a WTF look, it was hysterical.

It looked like they were on a power play for most of the first two periods! Got to give some credit to Boyle, too. The big guy is using his long reach and big body really good these days. A real test coming next week with Anaheim and Pittsburgh on the schedule. It would be awesome to take those two games. That would really show that the new Rangers have arrived. But for now, I'm loving what's out there.
A 5 1/2 minute post game presser? Like the power play goals, I don't think Torts had that much time all last season combined. Although I don't know if AV should be commenting on paying Hank the big dollars without the contract signed yet...lol
@Melissa (blknblueshirts) I thought the same thing. We couldn't see Richards' face when he said that. Sounds like there might have been a bit of a smile when he said it. Because the reality is, AV hasn't won at all! So, once is actually better.

I wish I had an explanation as to why Pyatt is still there. It's one of life's great mysteries.
4 months, 1 week ago on Big Night For Top Rangers Prospects In Wolfpack Win
This roster has developed a culture of losing. As mentioned, all the Columbus players plus the home growns who have won nothing. Add D. Moore, Pouliot?? These guys haven't won a thing in their careers. Richards is the only guy with a winning history and that was 10 years ago! They should have brought in a Frolik or Bickell, for no other reason than they have been on a winner. Someone..anyone...who has won something recently! Noone on this team knows how to win.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers Scouts Attend Avalanche/Sabres Game Last Night; Shopping Kreider?
I don't see his comments as being negative or unwarranted. He basically said that Lundqvist needs to be better and that he expects that he will. He said he works hard and is a true professional and will turn it around. All sounds pretty factual and tame to me. Lundqvist basically said the same about himself. He's not lying when he says the team gave up 8 scoring chances and that's about as low as you're going to see in an NHL game. I think we're making more of these comments than what they really are. Bottom line is the personnel on the team is not right for this style of hockey. Most of these guys aren't smart enough or skilled enough to handle it. Tortorella dumbed down the game for them and they thrived, but his style punished them too often. We need personnel changes and quickly.

@shoot_the_goalie I totally agree on all points. We need to opine on the what are's and forget the what ifs.

It's so depressing. Fortunately, the NHL Ice Girls Power Rankings are located just at the bottom of this page.

@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG I agree. They got what they wanted, a coach that allows them some creative freedom. Now they must accountable. You can count on one hand the players that really seem affected by this. There are an awful lot of followers on this team, looking for someone to lead them. Cally has tried to lead by example but that hasn't worked.
