The Rangers need some size and grit, eh? Perhaps two decades from now Will Weinman can be that guy.
The little fella arrived shortly after the Rangers fell in Vancouver last night, checking in at a hardy 10 pounds, one ounce, and a lengthy 22 inches long. The whole family is doing well, including the proud papa, who passed along the good news and a couple pics this morning.
I’m happy to be able to pass along the news. I’ll update here whenever I can until Sam emerges from beneath the pile of diapers.
â€” I caught the last two games almost in full and saw what you did: 1) a team that played well but was done in by a soft goal late, followed by 2) a subpar effort in Vancouver.
Still, I agree with some of the comments on the previous post. I think it’s premature to judge the team based on two losses on back-to-back nights in Western Canada. Neither were blowouts and spoke volumes about some concerning trend. (That is, unless you want to count the lack of scoring…a persistent problem all season.)
â€” The other item I wanted to mention were the grades you handed out. They were similar for the players (Girardi and Gomez did well, Jagr and Drury average to below average, Malik poorly), but there seemed to be a great discrepancy among readers on Renney and his staff. I guess it’s a matter of who ya blame for the club hovering near .500, the coach or his players. There seems to be little common ground among Ranger fans on the topic.
Anyone have a thought â€” a legit, well-reasoned thought beyond calling the coach a weasel â€” as to why it’s so black and white?
â€” Also, “John Dellapina reports on his blog”:http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/rangers/ that Brendan Shanahan and Henrik Lundqvist will return to the ice in Edmonton.
