Wow….I was actually having a good Monday and thinking “something
has to go wrong Monday’s never go this well” and poof here we are. Kevin thank
you for everything, your insight, your dedication and your passion will be
sorely missed. I know it sounds ridiculous, but this blog has been an very very
big reason for my Rangers fandom. When the good times happen I and check my
computer for your reaction and when the bad times happen….well I get some
whiskey and read my way off the cliff.
I think 1 very important thing that makes the blog different than other blogs
is the opinion of its writers. It’s not just news its real commentary and
insight from real Rangers fans. Whether it’s a game recap, a trade, any sort of
news, fans are always looking for as many opinions as they can get. A lot of
the time the find the same generic ones but here there is always different
opinions and points being made.
Overall, thank you for everything Kevin. Thank you for starting this blog.
Thank you for your hard work and obviously LETS GO RANGERS.

It sounds like this wont effect the Moore signing for some reason cap wise so I love this move. It's his job to lose but as far as the prospects we have being NHL ready he and Miller are the top 2 Projected lines I am praying for.... Kreider Stepan MSL Nash Brass ZuccHags Miller Hayes Glass Moore Stepniak
I saw Skjei listed on the roster on another source and was confused. Glad you cleared that up

@KevinTheNYRBlog @maxrokz @Scott from SEC 224 All good points including the cap space situation they have and the RFA's they have to resign which might take priority. I still hope they are able to sign another forward. Lindberg/Miller/Fast have bright futures but are not locks this season. A veteran Forward would certainly help....especially since the next best option is Tanner Glass playing beyond the 4th line for Chris Mueller coming up for depth....

Someone has to explain to me how not signing Roy or Riberio at 1 mill. is not the correct move to help this team going forward. Short term deal, low risk players, minimal cap hit.....what am I missing?
I am sorry I know a post on this blog isn't making a big statement but this is an ENORMOUS middle finger to the fans. Any other teams reaction in this situation should be "We deserved to be booed the way we played last night." Is that not the case? I get most of it is on Nash does Nash really think last night he didn't deserved to be booed? @KevinTheNYRBlog is 100% his reaction to this though post game was awful. I was one of the biggest Rick Nash fans i the world until yesterday now I can't wait for him to get off my team. Disgraceful all year with this team just disgraceful.

Its amazing we win game one, we say game 2 is a "house money" game, we lose, and now everyone just wants to give up. The best player in hockey beat him....I don't think that's major cause for concern. You are back home now last night is in the past win the damn game go up 2-1 and I promise no one will care what happened in game 2

You know what? Who cares? Are we going to just pray that the Rangers face
struggling goaltenders on the path to the cup? It’s not going to happen Marc Andre Flurry might be waiting
for us if we beat Philly he and Bobrovsky haven’t been great in that series but
after that its Carey Price or Tukka Rask. This team has looked fantastic on
defense vs an amazing offensive team. If they can play smart stay disciplined and
do what they have done in the 2nd half of the season they will be
fine in this series. I am glad Mason is playing if we lose this series in 6
games because Mason shut us out we don’t deserve to be anywhere near the cup.

One very underrated part of this trade is another blow to the physicality of this team. Cally was incredibly physical he could hit and he was a guy on a top line that could stand up for someone. MSL can't do that who will that guy be Kreider??

Its a nothing move (Sorry Kevin I will do a shot for you tonight) but what is up with this "trying to catch lightening in a bottle" Strategy the rangers seem to be trying with failed
first round picks? Pouliot now this? Are we really that desperate? Again not a
big move but I wonder why we keep doing this when it seems to not be working

Its horrible news but if we take a look at the schedule we have 13 games in the next month if we can 6/7 of those games were fine. In that month we get Cally/Nash/Hags back.....this is a doable tough stretch to get through please tell me im wrong
1 year, 2 months ago on Callahan Out 3-4 Weeks With Broken Thumb
Torts was fired because he lost the locker room and the team
was trending downward with him in charge. A change needed to be made the talent
is there I think that’s a good move. No one in hockey thinks Richards isn’t going
to bounce back, he can still be bought out next season. Unless he gets hurt or
unless they fail to keep someone like McD or Stephan I don’t think this is a
bad move. If he blows for the first 40 games ok great hes a healthy scratch the
rest of the season and they get someone else who can play better. Sather is
telling the players you got what you wanted now show me what you can do if they
fail then you will see guys like Richards Del Zotto and many others get the Axe
but I really have a tough time hating this move.

@KevinDeLury dont go just yet.....http://snyrangersblog.com/rangers/news-john-tortorella-fired/
1 year, 6 months ago on A Much Deserved Thank You
If they aren't going to play Krieder and Miller....which makes little to no sense since every game this season was important and Miller should stay in this role which he has done well in..... Then they need to get Clowe. Don't give up a major piece if vancover or philly want to throw a lot for him fine let them.
1 year, 8 months ago on Rangers A Likely Landing Spot for Clowe; Jagr Traded to Bruins
@KevinDeLury Gotta think Pyatt/Boyle/Newberry would be one of the odd men out for Zucc. no?? Hopefully we see some fire from them since they know their spots are in danger.
1 year, 8 months ago on Zuccarello Out; Same Line-up vs. Senators
Sorry I was at the game same ol same ol.... It is getting tough more me to stay positive and think things are going to change. Everygame is the same...they let the other team score and play from behind, they for some reason cannot keep the puck on their sticks which was horrendous tonight, and we cant win a game in regulation against a team home that we "should" beat. I could very easily seeing them make an 8 or 7 seed and being done in one round AT BEST
1 year, 8 months ago on Rangers 2, Capitals 3 (SO)
Maybe I am missing something but can someone please tell me why Bickel wasn't put on waivers and Halpern was?
1 year, 9 months ago on Halpern Placed on Waivers
I am so sick of this team trying to make things work with what they have at some point when you are losing games like this something has to happen. For weeks people have been crying for Boyle and Richards and Gaborik and Del Zotto to improve. DZ had 1 bad game and hes young so im not as mad about him. Gaborik Richards I don't know what to say...they are stars they have talent maybe they are hurt but its not working. I can keep ranting BUT THE TALENT IS THE THE PIECES ARE THERE. Mike Sullivan I think at this point needs to go.... I am sorry maybe its not his fault but something needs to unify this team and shake these guys up. The power play is an enormous issue its his responsibility more players and trades will not turn it around. It is going to have to be something emotional because when I watch my team go out an play like that against the worst team in hockey there just isnt an answer.... Please tell me im wrong.
1 year, 9 months ago on Panthers 3, Rangers 1
oh and please for the love of god don't get hurt....
1 year, 9 months ago on Rangers vs. Panthers (Game 30)
This is one of those if we win so what if we lose its AWFUL games..... just go out take care of business enjoy 2 days off its that simple.
Mild concern I am sure the plan was to play Hank for 2 games sit him vs the Pathers a team they SHOULD (who knows with them) beat without him and then play him Sunday vs the Caps. 4 days rest plus the fact that he played last night and looked incredible doesn't scare me
1 year, 9 months ago on Lundqvist Has Headaches After Girardi Elbow
@JMK8363 @maxrokz It makes no sense to me if he is really worse than Hamrlik who has conditioning issues and is playing back to back days then what is he doing. It is like having a lefty specialist in your bullpen and not pitching him vs lefties.
1 year, 9 months ago on Rangers @ Devils (Game 29)
So I guess the whole the Rangers need to drop the gloves and be physical thing is out the window with Hamrlik in there. Seriously, why is Stu Bickel on this team?? Please someone tell me...
The last time the Rangers played a game as big as this one was on the road in Boston earlier in the season. I will take 2 points, I really will, but this team needs to win a game without a overtime/a shootout. They need a statement game where they play as a team get confidence and prove they belong in the Stanley Cup conversation. I could not agree more with this post I hope these 3rd and and 4th line losers like Boyle and Bickel step up to Hailey's level tonight and beat the piss out of this team in the first 5 minutes. Hell, I don't care if Gaborik throws his gloves down tonight (maybe it will help him) but this team needs to win a team game just like it did when Richards went down vs Buffalo. Hands down the biggest game of the season tonight thus far not only because of the standings and not only because the Rangers are just outside of the playoff picture but because its the F***ing Devils and its on the road.... deep breath and a prayer.....LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!
1 year, 9 months ago on Time For Rangers To Announce Their Presence With Authority
@KevinDeLury correct me if I am jumping the gun but wouldn't he have gone to the hospital if there was a serious break/concern over vision. I think its enormous that he did not go could just mean a face shield so stitches and maybe a game on the bench....maybe im wrong
1 year, 9 months ago on Staal Not Taken to Hospital After Puck to Eye Area
@KevinDeLury @nyrfan747 If it is how long do you think hell be out for 1-2 weeks? I guess it would depend on the fracture right?
1 year, 9 months ago on Rangers 4, Flyers 2
@IcyCup @AG_Blue Gabby had decent shots too he almost scored a few times. They played a great game and if Staal and Richards come back even by this weekend this team looks like it can make a run....The Staal injury really is any ones guess at this point but it looked bad
1 year, 9 months ago on Rangers vs. Flyers (Game 21)
@slapshot13j Post it here im sure it was great the guy is a complete goon I love it
SNY showed an image of him getting hit close up it looks like its the eyebrow still could be serious though
Yay...hope Staal is ok if he misses a game well be fine
They showed it again looks to be above the eye I would say bad cut or orbital bone from the looks of it
@IcyCup @slapshot13j How long is an orbital bone usually last? Don't think it would be long enough for them to look at a guy like Hamrlik
I rewatched I think it may have hit him just above the eye...its really tough to tell
ugh I hope hes ok normally thats a 1 game injury if its just a cut hopefully that didnt hit his eye or break anything
There he is....phew.....
Stephan needs to get back on the ice we cant lose him
bullshit its going to be a bad game
@McPhee21 If Asham ever plays....
Ill give someone 1 million dollars to tell me what Bickel is still doing on this team
I truly believe Richards is not in tonight because this is going to be an overly physical game. You dont want guys targeting him or making it worse if he is not near 100%. I could see him coming back this weekend very easily.
1 year, 9 months ago on Zuccarello's KHL Season Ends
@KevinDeLury word is Richards was on the ice but not for long, Gilroy is likely out, and Asham is still a bust and not skating. Thoughts??
1 year, 9 months ago on Briere: Rivalry Makes Rangers vs. Flyers Fun
@chrisD Agreed Del Zotto has a tendency to over commit in bad spots. Sometimes it works applies pressure in the other teams though but other times it backfires like it did last night
1 year, 9 months ago on Rangers 3, Sabres 2 (SO)
@MikeBlue Yeah not sure exactly what your definition of defending players is but Bickel is not fitting that role. Its not necessarily his fault he does not get a lot of ice time normally. His job right now should be filling Asham's role which means making his presence known on the ice and dropping the gloves if need be. I would much rather have a guy like Brandon Mashinter in on the wing at least he is capable of scoring and he is a big guy as well.
This was the first game I saw all season that the Rangers won because they played with heart and emotion. We have been waiting for that emotional win I think we got something close tonight. Gaborik and Richards (who is now maybe hurt) really need to step up I am so sick of them not playing to their potential Richards shot looked bad all game. Cally, Haglin, Stepan, Miller, and Nash were very very good tonight. Defense was solid Del Zotto made some ill advised moves but he always does that. Boyle, Pyatt, and Powe all played Torts style hockey especially on some of the penalty kills tonight. @KevinDeLury I don't know if you have the number of minutes Bickel played tonight and if they did not score so quickly after the hit maybe he would have played more but I have no idea why he is on this team. He took a bad penalty and I don't think did anything the rest of the game why is he here to replace asham??
I heard on Wfan they think it is a groin vs a concussion. If it is a concussion Torts and his entire staff should be fired.
