@ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun Just to set the record straight - global warming is caused mainly by women's menopause, so signing of Brassard will have, at best, a minimal effect.

My admiration for Dominic Moore has grown even more. I am so glad he remains a Ranger.

@Bring back Langdon @genetics73 Clearly I can always count on your class and good manners - or perhaps you are not getting the sarcasm, either. Not that it matters to me, but in a battle of wits I do not fight an unarmed opponent. Have a nice day.

@MikeBlue @Josh-CK @JMK8363 I find this idea of trading two very good young players for Eric Staal an absurdity, compounded by the wish to see Hagelin moved. And all that to replace Marc Staal with someone who is none the better - this is beyond absurd. Why not trade St Louis for Eric Staal - two aging players, past their prime, both skilled as they are.
@Bring back Langdon Duped? He offered a deal that an arbitrator could have modified. Wisely, Krieder avoided the process, showing loyalty and good sense in the process. I would not call this "being duped."

evaluate players' performance. Who says American educational system is

Good luck, Brad Richards.

In purely financial terms, what does "buying out" a player mean exactly? Does the player get the whole sum of money, or is it prorated? What does it do to the cap if the money is paid out? In other words, where does the "new" money come from for the team to now be able to pay for another player?
Stralman and McD were the Rangers' best defense players the entire season, and here are the "experts" who would not re-sign Stralman, Congratulations.

What a dreadful dreadful stream of consciousness Adam has indulged in.Trade several very good players for one who - regardless of his past performance - is far from being in his prime is a cockamamy idea. But, not the first time, nor the last. Thornton is NOT worth it. Better to develop what is already in place, or coming up (Kristo, Lindberg, etc.) than to trade for a - to put it bluntly - a has been. I am with Zelrio - trade Richards for Thornton - that is a deal I could appreciate.

Keep him - one of the least prepossessing, competent team players on the Rnagers. He has always been my favorite Ranger, and the Boyle Derangement Syndrome that so many on this blog have demonstrated is incomprehensible to me. Keep him.
@EquusBiz To show how dated I am - Bettman WAS booed at MSG in 1994. Good heavens - it has been TOO long.

@Bukra! For all Bettman's faults, he has made NHL profitable. This being a business, that's all that matters (notice how I plagiarized Hotfreak, shamelessly, too).
@scrangersfan If that's what you paid, then "you was robbed." The official rate has been near parity for quite some time, and currently stands at $1 US to $ 1.089 Canadian.

@Betweentheworlds I do not think the Rangers were outplayed and outhustled in the second game. The 3rd period was a CLINIC - they were in total control except at the very beginning of the period.Yes,the Habs were pushing in the 1st, but they basically fizzled in the latter parts of the contest.

This was the best 3rd period I have seen Rangers play in a long long time - they simply outclassed the opponents.

I cure cancer for a living; so I need more cancers to make my living more comfortable.
A man has an accident and an ambulance picks him up. As he lies on the stretcher, the emergency technician asks him: "are you comfortable?" The man responds: "I make a good living."
Yes, so, the Rangers score 4 goals - is that what you call an "utter inability to finish..."? Let's not indulge in hyperbole. And, as always, LGR!!!
Kevin says: "The one thing I worry may undermine the Rangers against the Flyers is a continuation of their utter inability to finish their chances."
Then, how on earth do they ever win any games? Do the opponents score FOR them?
I like Boyle - that alone should keep him with the Rangers; there's also the fact that he is a good, if not a spectacular, player. If one wants a spectacular player, just look at Ovechkin - he is a spectacle, indeed, even though he's scored over 50 goals. Every "star" needs a supporting cast, and Boyle, D. Moore, Carcillo, Dorsett, are just that, and quite good at what they do.
Before people jump on Boyle for his salary demands, lets wait to hear those demands.
And, anyway, *I* like Boyle and want him in New York, so there..

Oy! And double Oy! Syntax shmyntax, and in any case, i am always
pleased to "regale" the malcontents with long, polysyllabic words. It
was not the syntax - the syntax was perfect. It was, in hockey terms,
equivalent to substituting Brodeur for Lunqvist - the former one is
pitiful, the latter, maginifcently appropriate. So, there. LGR.
@Say my Name @genetics73Oy!
@Bring back Langdon BAD BAD BAD joke!
Kevin, surely you meant that "AV’s calm demeanor was the perfect ..." ANTIDOTE:). But, do continue to regale us with amusing anecdotes from the life and works of Torts.
Why did i think that AnnoyingJoe would just be the person to create the Boyle giraffe? :)

Why even consider trading away Kreider and/or Stepan and/or Hagelin for a player that will soon be a "has been?" I like all the Stahls, but not at any price. What about trading MSL for Eric Stahl - that is a trade I would approve, provided we also get first round picks in perpetuity, and especially with Ladd, another near "has been" from Winnipeg thrown into the bargain. I am sure Carolina would be glad to arrange the latter exchange This idle talk, not based in reality, reminds me of the current administration in DC, about as competent. But, I digress.
So, James, as "there’s a lot we don’t know behind the scenes." why waste time on idle rumors? :). Why not speculate instead on when MSL will score the first goal as a Ranger? One seems as likely - or unlikely - as the other.

After reading all the comments from dedicated Rangers fans I shudder to think what the enemies of the Rangers have to say. I am reminded of a man wanting a divorce - the judge said to him, "surely, Sir, there must be something wrong in this marriage on both sides?" The man replied, "Aye, Your Honor, she has neither titties nor buttocks." So it appears with the Rangers - neither defense nor offense - even though they did win, and even though Hagelin could have been congratulated on his first NHL hat trick, at least in passing.

Don't criticize Carcillo - if not for his "neutered" behavior, the Rnagers would not have gotten a PP against the Penguins. Dan has been a decent player for the Rangers.

That said, I see no smart reason to trade either goalie. Therefore, I think jvr's idea is ill-considered (but not in such polite words.)
And now, for the rant: It is nothing short of annoying to read all those whinning Boyle Derangement Syndrome spoutings. The man is one of the BEST Rangers players in so many aspects of the game - PK, faceoffs, tremendous reach and ability to defend puck possession. As someone has mentioned, Boyle is not a fighter, yet he kept Simmons from attacking other Rangers players - neutralized him, not to say neutered. I will also remind the complainers that Boyle has scored more goals in the past few games than Derek Stepan, a player whom I like, but who doesn't seem to be the butt of silly comments. Enough already,

I have always liked Boyle and could never understand the whiners suffering from the Boyle Derangement Syndrome (BDS). He has always impressed me with his pleasant demeanor and ability to do little things on ice that BDS "hockey experts" seem to miss. Has he had poor games - no doubt. Which of the Rangers hasn't? I would be sad if he were to leave the Rangers.

@Say my Name @Hotfreak Last night's pass to MD for the first goal was an excelent example of Boyle's strength. If that wasn't physical domination, I don't know what is. And all that without "crushing" an opponent.
