@Kevin DeLury This is Buffalo we're talking about. Does it really seem they know what they are talking about up there? Take logic, do the opposite and you have the decision the Sabres will make lol

At least they don't have to worry about Kaleta too. This is one of those games I just hope the team comes out in one piece. I almost don't care about the points/score. Almost.

@Iron Mike Absolutely agree on Callahan and have been saying it for weeks. That said, I've actually noticed him the past two games so maybe whatever has been bothering him is close to healed? I hate giving him the excuse every time he becomes invisible but there always seems to be one with him. Hopefully the goal yesterday wakes him up since he couldn't have scored a more Callahan-type goal if he tried.

@supermaz I'm not saying he should stay but if you are basing things on plus/minus you are doing it wrong. That stat means nothing.

@shoot_the_goalie @Betweentheworlds I'm not expecting every coach to get fiery like Torts and honestly not sure I even want that. But show some emotion. Or attempt to get your team in a game they obvious look like they don't care about. Instead he just stands there and then gives cocky answers during his press conferences as if he's the smartest guy in the room. Kind of ironic to say that considering what they just got rid of but that's how I see him lol.
As for Messier, I wouldn't have taken my chances on him. Yes he has a personality of a winner but that doesn't equate wins. Case in point (on a lower scale) - he also was known to win faceoffs as player. How many Rangers has he worked with on that? How have they done after working with him? Just because he can do it himself, doesn't mean he can teach others. Let him get experience coaching at a lower level and see how he does. Then we can talk about him being a NHL coach.
They say teams take on the personality of their coach. It's amazing how quick these guys became AV after being Torts for so many years. By the way, was anyone else fuming as AV just stood there after the second Winnipeg goal as if nothing had happened? How can we expect the players to care of their coach doesn't?

Didn't Lundqvist say he didn't want to deal with this during the season?
Also, do we know this isn't going anywhere because of Sather or because of Lundqvist? Watching the "controversy" AV is trying to create, I wouldn't want to sign either if I was Lundqvist. (No I don't think it's a controversy at this point but AV seems to be trying to make it one for reasons I can't even begin to imagine.)

@Kevin DeLury Oh I know. That's why I didn't yell at you for the comment lol. But you see how it was taken....
1 week, 2 days ago on Lightning 5, Rangers 0
I know you don't honestly believe there would be a goalie controversy but can you not even say it...too many people will take you seriously. Interesting thought on Staal. And while I'm not looking to take an excuse away from them (cause I agree with everything you said, especially our MIA captain), I don't think they were golfing with their fathers today. I think it was just the dads on the golf course.
@iwantgaborik He's a rookie but I'm guessing that's guys eligible for the Calder and he's too old for that. You have to not have reached your 26th birthday as of September 15th. He was already 26 by then.
1 week, 4 days ago on Rangers 2, Predators 0
@KreiderisTheChosenOne Honestly if it is the same shoulder, we have bigger issues cause that means he'll never be the player he was if he injured it again that quickly. That said, I agree 100% but it will never happen. He is a stubborn mule. Sadly it's one of the reasons he's so loved in this city.
1 week, 6 days ago on Rangers 3, Stars 2
Interesting you bring up Callahan. I hate giving him excuses but every time he looks off, there always seems to be a reason and I agree he hasn't been himself recently. I think he re-hurt his shoulder last week - can't remember the game but he went back to the bench grimacing and missed practice the next day. Whatever is bothering him, happened then.
@MikeBlue That would be great if the Sens are offering him. My guess is they aren't since it sounded like they want more right Dmen not give one away.
2 weeks ago on Not Another Del Zotto Trade Rumor
@boogiepicker I agree with that. I was just venting about AV because I haven't been impressed lol
@KLorNYR No idea but I know the Stadium Series exists cause Bettman wanted Yankee Stadium and couldn't get it on New Years cause of other commitments there for the next few years. I would like to think they will change it up but who knows.
2 weeks ago on Do Rangers Stadium Series Shirts Give Insight Into Jersey Design?
I think Sather is looking to move him but AV is a moron and not helping the situation. Seriously, I'm amazed this guy has been a head coach for so many years lol. As for the rumors, I can't wait till Brooks tries to trade Callahan or Lundqvist cause you know it's coming.
LeBrun had mentioned the Sens were one of the teams interested in him. Read an interesting take on that yesterday. Apparently the Sens currently have more left D than the Rangers do so why would they be looking for another one? It's clear DZ can't play on the right....or doesn't play well there. Think it's something to look at when teams pop up as rumored to be looking at him. Also something to keep in mind - other than Nash, when has there been rumors about a trade Sather is making before it happens? With him, when there's smoke it means trade cancelled lol.
@KLorNYR I disagree. It may look like a clever way to promote hockey but I promise you anyone who goes to or watches those games was planning on it whether they were indoors or outdoors. These Stadium Series games aren't gaining the league fans. If this was the actual Winter Classic, then yes make new jerseys. These games in my opinion don't deserve them.
@johnAMIRANTESrug Once in a while, yes. Every year is overkill in my mind. Agree these suck but hopefully everyone feels that way and doesn't buy them so Bettman realizes how stupid this whole thing is lol
@johnAMIRANTESrug But is this a "special" game? In my opinion it's not so no special jersey is needed. Next time the Rangers are in the actual Winter Classic, I will expect a special jersey. For these games, not necessary in my mind.
Honestly, this is just another game so why make another jersey? The teams in the Winter Classic should get special jerseys. The Stadium Series is just a way to ruin a good thing and has nothing to do with the history or tradition of the game so I'm glad they aren't making specialized jerseys. You want a new jersey every year?
