Did someone say Fischler?
Mickey, gets me every time.
not even sure why Mike Rupp is on this team to be honest
rupp fights. thats all. and he adds grit. hes better than a lot of other guys wev had on the 4th line lately
kinda convinced that the 4th line, given the way this team works, is basically pointless 95% of the time
You’re welcome, gentlemen :)
ohh, andhe got 2 sweet goals in the wc. that alone is worth his being here. hes got more goals than prust too. yikes!
ur point lloyd?
You dont understand how hockey works, Lloyd. Our 4th line brings a physical presence, plays defense against other team’s top lines, and helps wear down other team’s top lines. They also penalty kill, and lay their bodies and lives on the line to block shots.
you tell me what impact Bickel and Rupp had on this game
Carp, what’d you think of Torts saying not too ask about injury updates? Gross seems to have taken offence to that.
not much impact lloyd. but we won.
im more worried about gaborik and dubinsky getting their game back lloyd. gabby has been gettin primo chances and not getting much production. duby with 6 goals is terrible no matter how u look at it. but were winning. so, whattyagonado. nothin.
except for trade for Nash :D. sorry, too easy. This weeks needs to pass by already, deals or no deals, the anxiety isnt healthy.
Mickey!! Got a house here with your satisfaction just waiting to explode by you cleaning it!!
you all may not want Nash but send him here and there aint too many I wouldnt trade him for…the guy is a tank buried in a bad organIzation and will score 30+ a year for thext 5 years or so if not longer…He is better than Dubinsky or AA any time anywhere…Give him one of them a kid (I agree Kreider has to be an untouchable) and a 1st rounder and throw in a second kid if need be…all these kids in the minors cannot fit here…you build a deep minor league system to make trades just like this! Get em Slats…would have been cool if he was traded between periods.
I sort of agree with Lloyd. But I like having Rupper and Mitchell in the lineup.
I have to agree with Grabby – everything isn’t perfect, but we’re winning – I’m happy that we didn’t lose 2 in a row at home – that would have been awful at this point.
Mrs. Eminger at 9:50, previous thread: Nice!;-)
Don’t expect a very eventful trade deadline. There are like maybe 3-4 sellers, standings are very tight.
never liked the guy as a player but this sounds horrible http://www.csnphilly.com/blog/flyers-talk/post/Prongers-wife-Chris-status-very-disheart?blockID=654150&feedID=695
hope he can live his life…
Rupper has his moment and is a good team guy. I liked Bell Biv as a fourth line guy but is silly to spend too much time talking about the bottom three dudes. Also, who is this Lou guy the garden was chanting about not wanting?
I had no problem with tonight apart from them not scoring more goals when they were clearly the better time throughout. And I like a bit of what Mitchell brings. Rupp and Bickel on the other hand, I don’t think the outcome of games like this depend in any way on their presence. Maybe against some big hitting team it’s a different story, but with the 5 or 6 minutes he gives them, what’s the point.
Gaborik looked good tonight, he just wasn’t able to finish. I thought he looked good away from the puck and created good opportunities. Dubinsky stinks, just like he has all year long.
I’m not a huge fan of Pronger but the guy is dealing with a very difficult situation and having gone through a bit of what he’s experiencing right now, I don’t wish it on anyone.
And holy crap, six years for Keith Primeau. I had no idea. That’s absolutely terrible.
I feel bad for Pronger, Crosby, and really anyone who suffers like that, regardless of their team being a rival.
you guys do not get it. nash’s contract is horrible and therefore he does not make sense on this team at almost any price…..
Over $7 mill a year for 4 or 5 years more… that is a big big overpay and then you throw in talent going back and this trade makes no sense NONE>>>>>>>>>>
Dubi is offensively inept and they still have 81 points. I do not understand Bickel in the lineup tonight. Seriously play Wolski and if he sucks(most probably the case) dump him for anything or just sit him out, but to play Bickel 5 minutes when toughness is not needed is a total waste
Agree with Lloyd. I’ve had three concussions. One lasted almost a month and was awful. Really awful. Could not imagine six years of that. I hope both those guys are able to recover sooner rather than later. I really liked Primeau and although I always saw Pronger as the scary meathead type dude who might snap unexpectedly at any moment, this is still a sad story.
They should trade dubby and a first rd pick for carter… Dubby and carter have close to the same cap hit…plus can actually score
stuart a, I understand what you’re saying but think…Meh? Sure Bickel is a waste at 5min but so would WW be playing 5min on the bottom three. At least Bickel will give us some toughness and through some hits. In the same role, where Torts would for sure stick WW, we’d get…?
Carter is the Ghost of Playoffs Past, Present and Future. I think trading for Carter=Bad move cap’n.
Jeff Carter? HELL NO!
This should be every Ranger fans reaction to a Jeff Carter trade
I’d sooner take Anson Carter
Mr. Carter would bring a great stache and some wisdom.
Time is relative.
carters contract is much longer and much more expensive then Dubi’s. Carter’s problem is he does not try that is unnaceptable. Carter, Penner, guys like that are horrible players who’s lack of effort kilsls teams…..
Nash is gonna happen.
Carter would be in Torts’ doghouse most of the time. Waste of time having a guy like that.
lev-ee, llloyd of london’s, rangers ‘adam’ west
We all have our struggles and demons to deal with. This is the cycle of life. The beauty is in the manner in which we deal with adversity. It ain’t easy, but one eventually either decides to fight or admits defeat. Fairly simple strategy for our various complex struggles.
that is all!™
Nash already happened in Toronto.
Jeff Carter will retire before he’s 35. Once his scoring declines (It already disappears in the playoffs) no team in the NHL will have any use for him. Maybe he can be towel boy or an Ice Boy to cheer on the team but that will be the end all of it.
He should join a beer league, since he loves drinking so much. Richards can eventually join him.
Jimbo, I HATE cleaning so thanks but not thanks on the offer. I only cleaned today cause I had to.
ORR – Where do you find this stuff – gross but hysterical! Oh and I agree with the sentiment…
ORR!! What Is It Good For? February 20th, 2012 at 12:08 am
This should be every Ranger fans reaction to a Jeff Carter trade
That actually happened to me once. I was tossing my little sister up, and she barfed on my face. When I saw Carter’s name, that was the thought that came to mind!
Carter?? EWWWW, no.
OK, bed time, kids.
NO TO NASH!
