seems like a lot of people are willing to give Talbot a pass. He was truly awful on 3 of the 4 goals
1 week, 2 days ago on Jets 5, Rangers 2
A few random thoughts...
Felt sorry for Brassard and Pouliot (an Hags) getting a minus on that goal where Hags hustled to get back. Cally and Richie slowly headed to the bench and made it there while a 3 on 3 became a 5 on 3. Because Brassard and Pouliot were barely on the ice they get a minus. Small complaint I know.
Not sure I wanted Pyatt to get hit like that either but we all know only an injury would get him out of the lineup - just wish it wasn't to the head.
McD on the PP - funny how Torts never thought he could play there yet trotted Girardi out on the PP on a regular basis. So maybe Hags wouldn't suck on the PP either?
Lastly, I noticed the Kreider kiss to Talbots helmet as well and it almost looked like he knew immediately he'd get teased for it. Good catch, Kev

1 month ago on How About That Pass From Zuccarello?
Saucer pass was necessary on that play to get over sticks AND lead the players and it was a perfect saucer pass. You'd be surprised how many NHL players can't make that pass. I don't know much about soccer - maybe it's an easier pass there
8 are RFA contracts and of those 2 are Mash and Falk. Need t ensure Kreider and JMoore get locked up. Other RFAs (Zucc, Talbot, MDZ, Brassard) have reasons for/against signing and will come down to cap increase and rest of this year performance.
There are also 8 UFA contracts - players were Rangers could easily lose (no offer sheet match). Oviously top 2 that need to be signed in this category are Hank and Cally. In the 'let walk' category of UFA are DMoore, Pyatt and Pouliot. In the 'maybe/maybe not' category are Girardi, Sralman and Boyle (need to have a reasonable value signing for these I'd guess).
it was sooo saucy!!!
I'm gonna give Pouliot a pass on this one since he was shoved to the ground in the first place with no call. Even the entire broadcast team originally thought it was a Pittsburgh penalty.
That said, Pouliot, Pylon and Dorsett are about tied in brainfart penalties this year - way too many.
1 month ago on Rangers Romp Penguins 5-1
Normally I'd agree, but this network adores the Pens except for Olczyk, who might be the least biased announcer I've ever listened to. Seems like the Pens have rivalries with everyone because next week on 'Rivalry Wednesday on NBCSN' the Pens are on for the 3rd straight week.
Re Emrick specifically, he's Pittsburg born and raised and I thought last night it showed. You'd have thought the Rangers were down 2-0 after the first and about 8 minutes into the second when the Pens finally had a good shift, Emrick starts to say how they were dominating. Olczyk quickly reminds him it's been all Rangers until this shift.
I do agree that Sam and Joe are a tough listen these days. Would love to see Albert on a regular basis on the TV side.
I'm with you - Rozy fits with Blackhawks because even a Stanley Cup team has to save a few dollars carrying some dead weight. Kinda like we do with Pyatt

Then why all this talk NOW after a few good games by Talbot? I understand dollars and sense (and cents). I just think the goalie position is entirely different from any other position (especially due to low concussion rate, injuries etc) when it comes to longer term contracts. Just my opinion
I think one more full year for Isles in Hempstead but don't qoute me on that
jeez - Talbot's had a few nice games but do you seriously think that's enogh to unload the guy who's been rock-solid for us for several years now? I really think we're getting way ahead of ourselves here.
Glad to see Hagelin - my favorite Ranger - back in the lineup. He easily could have had 2 more asissts on splendid passes to Pouliot and Pyatt earlier in the game.
Can't wait till Cally's back - maybe then we can get Pytt off the PK once and for all.
not me- I was a Dubi fan to the end. Still wear my Dubi Jersey to Rangers games

So before the whole 9 game road trip to start the season began, I read a lot of "with this schedulecoming back to MSG at 4-5-0 8 pts would be a good result". We missed the target by one game, so the sky's not falling, but I think what had all Ranger fans up in arms was the lack of effort or enthusiasm. Finally last night I saw both effort and enthusiasm so I for one am seeing the glass half full finally.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Rangers 3, Red Wings 2 (OT)
There's reason to love Dubi. Even when he wasn't soring he did million oher things to help th team, like best PK on the team and sticking up for his mates. And if Torts loved Dubi so much, why did Dubi get traded?
They did no more than the Ranger's do.

I was also shocked to see Pyatt thrown out as the extra man when Talbot was pulled. Yeah - let's throw our slowest guy out there because puck pursuit doesn't matter late in the game at desparation time.
