Can’t they just postpone the Devils game?


Maybe this isn’t the time to be playing the hottest team in hockey. Or if you’re of the optimistic sort, maybe the Devils, as they have done in the past, are the ones who help the Rangers snap to life.

For what it’s worth, the team has not called up anyone from Hartford, which sounded like at least a remote possibility yesterday.

More in a bit…

  1. Maybe with Henrik slumping and Valiquette playing in 2 games in a row, maybe its time to see what Montoya can do in an NHL game.

  2. Why call anyone up? Hossa scored a goal! Why call Baranka up? Strudwick is Scott Niedermeyer’s cousin! That means he’s great too!

  3. Would you really prefer to play against Phoenix or Washington instead the Devils in the slump the Rangers in ???

    I feel it is better to face one of the hottest team and possibly end the slump with a win….

  4. SAM the real question is can Renney get Jagr’s line right. He can start with getting Dubinsky off it, he’s not even in the same ‘league’ as Nylander. He has postponed making that change for WAY too long. Somebody needs to enlighten or get Renney to make it his idea, Dubinsky is not ready for prime time.

  5. Larry Brooks has a few of the Rangers, particularly Gomez, saying the Atlanta game was a much stronger performance than the score indicates. I don’t know about everyone else, but I thought it was pathetic, Valli or not. Jagr’s line is too ineffective too often and everyone else is playing half-ass. Did I miss something?

  6. Bklynblue,

    I think we’re agreeing actually. Jagr is obviously vital, I never said he wasn’t. However, nobody can argue that he’s been pathetic this year. His lack of production completely shuts down his ENTIRE line (and may have infected the rest of the squad) inlcuding the PP.

    My point was… I wonder what happens with WHOEVER on that line when they don’t have to bow down to his ego and play Jagr-ball.

    If the key is Jagr (which along with Hank, I do agree with) then it’s looking like we won’t be getting in the door.

    I’ve played hockey but don’t pretend to be an expert… if I can figure out that every time anyone gets the puck and Jagr’s on the ice… they immediately look to pass to him then every team in the NHL can.

    If I can see that once he has it, he’ll cycle around in the corner until he gives it up to one of his linemates… fully expecting, no DEMADING to get it right back, then making a weak attempt to shrug off any defender(s) and cut to the slot, then every team in the NHL can & has.

  7. Jagr needs to step it up, and I would get Dubinksy off his line. Nothing against Dubinsky, but get someone on that line that has been around the block a few times like Drury.

    I said all along Jagr should be playing with Dawes, who is just like Nylander.

  8. Straka needs to start shooting all the time, from every angle. Send a message that Jagr won’t get the puck every time.

  9. Jagr probably shouldn’t be playing with any rookie, Dubi or Dawes. Most veterans don’t even have the courage not to defer to J at all times, which is actually what we need. Someone who will present an alternative on J’s actual line, so as to create space on the ice and hesitation in the D’s mind about what is going to happen next.

  10. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    Jagr is definitely the problem right now – add to that his “czech posse” (which someone incorrectly pointed to as Hossa and Malik) – – Roszival.

    I really don’t want to read another poster saying Hossa, Hollweg, Prucha, and Malik are the problem. Malik is a baby and poor sporstman for his comments, agreed. But Roszival failed with Malik (watch his coverage, there is none) and then last night Roszival was the guy NOT COVERING ANYONE for 3 of the first 4 goals, he was the guy skating with Hossa on the empty net goal, and he was also the guy who gave up the turnover on the disallowed goal!!! Hossa, Hollweg, and Prucha are playing a strong defensive system – the team was winning 2-1 games doing exactly what they’re doing now.

    And, afterall, those aren’t the guys being paid to put the puck in the net. Jagr, Straka, and Roszival are going minus 2 to minus 4 in the last 3 games, each game!!!

    Recognize where the problem is people…it starts with Renney but continues as far as Jagr and Roszival.

  11. FYI, Dawes is running wild tonight. About half-way through the 3rd period, he has 2 goals and 3 assists. He now has 23 points in 12 games.

  12. They should call Dawes up for tomorrow. He owns marty this year with 3 goals. Sit Hollweg so you can still have Hossa for the power play kill.

  13. Chris F. – I definitely think the Rangers played better than the score last night, but that’s motsly because of the empty-net goal. I still think it could have easily been taken to OT if they cashed in on some offensive chances. The transitions to defense were pretty pitiful, though, with a few odd-man rushes bunched together for Atlanta, which Rosen failed to mention, and neither mentioned the 4 on 2.

    bklynblue – If you want to pair defensemen as you suggest on this team, you would surely have to break up Girardi and Tyutin, and that, my friend, would be silly. You have Mara, Malik, Rozsival, and Staal who I see as offensive players. Staal obviously isn’t putting up the points, but you can see the effort there.

  14. My lines would be:





    Straka and Hollweg out.

    On defense:

    Staal-Rozi (for now)



    Struds and Malik out.

  15. The only way this team is going to win anything is to try to unload Jagr, Shanny and Straka for starters.

    Right now, Jagr has to be the worst franchise player in the NHL

  16. The only way this team is going to win anything i to try to unload Jagr, Shanny and Straka for starters.

  17. Actually, I’m starting to think that Jagr is NOT the key, not at all. Last year Chris Drury was the captain of the team that won the President’s Cup. Yeah, he scores a ton of clutch goals – but his coaches all along had him on the ice in every key situation, and not just the ones at the end of the game. I think he’s being misused. Play him with Jagr and if Jagr can’t figure it out, move Jagr down to the third line. Maybe this shouldn’t be Jagr’s team -maybe it should be Drury’s and Gomez’. The lomger everyine defers to the wrong people, the worse this problem gets

  18. Highlights from hartford 7-1 win tonight
    Al Montoya 22 saves on 23 shots
    Nigel Dawes 2 goals 3 assists
    Greg Moore 3 goals 1 assist
    1 goal each for Anisimov and Parenteau
    And from looking at the stats it looks like Jessiman got a game misconduct for fighting.

  19. just another fucking underachieving ranger team loaded with stars

    what a disgrace of an organization. original fucking six, no less. you’d think we’d have some balls. some integrity.


  20. salty where did you get such a varied vocabulary? How about some respect for Sam & others? Try talking to your mother that way.

  21. salty how’s your reading comprehension? ….”It is a condition of your use of the comment features associated with the blogs that you do not: Use the site to post or transmit any unlawful, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, profane or indecent information of any kind, including without limitation any transmissions constituting or encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any local, state, national or international law.

  22. I think we will see a re- focused Ranger team tonight.

    I see Callahan scoring tonight and getting to Marty in the

    absense of Avery ..

  23. Sam,

    I know this is the dumbest idea ever, and I don’t know if we’re even allowed to do it, but is it feasible to pack up Mara, Prucha (4.6 M) and w/e else in picks/prospects, send it to Washington for Nylander (4.875 M), and dish him in the summer if we can’t afford to keep everyone we want?

  24. zzyzx why don’t you meet me on that ? So you can tell me to my face. …..There have been way too many people coming here talking garbage, so many good posters have left. My guess is you’re salty or his baby alter ego. I guess you need SAM to tell you, then ignore him. If you can read, try the terms of service. There are minors both male & female coming here that don’t need to read those posts.

  25. Steve

    I don’t know what Washington gets out of that deal, they lose a centerman and get back a wing and a defenseman. Although it is a thought though.

    However, I don’t think Nylander is worth two young players down the road, Jagr has to get his game together.

  26. bklynblue: So let me get this straight, you want to have a face-to-face confrontation with some random person that is busting your chops on an anonymous internet message board? All I have to say is…wow.

    On to hockey-related content: has anyone ever noticed that Slava Kozlov looks strikingly similar to Stevie Ray Vaughan? Weird.

  27. HAHA – salty – I just read that comment above then noticed it was 4a.m. It’s cool brother, we’ve all been there.

    thanks for the laugh.

    btw – as you see the time i am posting this….I’m protesting the HORRIBLE pregame. especially when it’s locals going against each other. dreadful.
