Rangers recall J.T. Miller from Hartford


I imagine this means Benoit Pouliot is out tomorrow, and if Derek Dorsett is able to play (wrist), maybe Taylor Pyatt too.

From the Rangers:


NEW YORK, December 6, 2013 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has recalled forward J.T. Miller from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Miller, 20, has registered two points (one goal, one assist) in three games since he returned to Hartford on November 26. He has tallied five goals and one assist for six points, along with six penalty minutes and a plus-four rating in six games with the Wolf Pack this season. He notched a goal in four straight games from October 6 against Albany to November 27 against Portland. Miller returns to the Rangers where he has registered two points (one goal, one assist) in 15 games this season. He recorded his first point of the season with a power play assist on October 31 against Buffalo, and notched his first goal of the season on November 10 against Florida.

The East Palestine, Ohio native was originally selected by the Rangers as a first round choice, 15th overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

    hey, he’s a rebel and he’ll never ever be any good…


  3. I’d love to trade Pouliot in conference. Takes an even 60:00 game and makes it 58:00 + 2:00 on the PP before you even start.

  4. ‘My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a farmhouse near
    Between the woods and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.’

  5. The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have a big ‘ol contract, sending out for sushi.

  6. After train derailment, killing at least 4 people, Metro North states they will have extra crew in train cab, so in case the driver falls asleep or has a heart attack, someone else will notice that the train is going around a bend at 82 MPH in a 30 MPH zone. These guys are on top of it.

  7. so Miller in for Pulliot?

    We only wasted 30 games on another Sather reclamation project….

    I heard he just picked up another………..

  8. Netherlands aren’t even a good bet to get out of their group. That’s the real group of death to non-US based fans, I imagine.

    I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
    I want to ride my bicycle
    I want to ride my bike
    I want to ride my bicycle
    I want to ride it where I like…

  10. Hey, I started out mopping the floor just like you guys. But now… now I’m washing lettuce. Soon I’ll be on fries; then the grill. In a year or two, I’ll make assistant manager, and that’s when the big bucks start rolling in.

    “Netherlands aren’t even a good bet to get out of their group. That’s the real group of death to non-US based fans, I imagine.”

    You have no clue what you are talking about. They may not advance beyond the group stage, but they’re a better bet to do so than Chile, while Australia have no chance.

    To non U.S. fans, the group of death would be England, Uruguay, and Italy.

  12. a free Friday night to watch the pack game and they call up Miller….

    at least Fast and Asham are skating today…woo hoo

    I wonder if that Beach character will be skating tonight… might make it more interesting.

  13. My Avatar does portray me as an angry wife who is asking what the family would like for dinner.

    But truth be told, I’m am a prepubescent 4th grade androgynous Catholic school drop-out junkie who likes to ride ponies and feed the ducks while sipping vinegar and sniffing glue.

    that’s on the goalie.

  16. I was pulled over doing 90 MPH returning to NY from Boston. Before the Trooper could ask for my license, I said, “Officer, I hate hearing bad news. So would you please start by telling tell me what I didn’t do wrong?” Needless to say, he was speechless.

    He gave me a warning!!!!

  17. I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing
    ‘Til they got a hold of me
    I’d open doors for little old ladies
    I helped the blind to see

  18. I woke up
    in a Soho doorway
    A policeman
    knew my name
    He said,
    “You can go
    sleep at home tonight
    If you can get up
    and walk away”

  19. CCCP Johnson jokes? It was never a joke. It’s very serious.

    Do you know how hard it is to keep Johnson flowing?

    Just talked to my sister in law in Denver CO – a balmy zero degrees F there right now…

  21. What’s with this global freezing crapola? We need to start burning more carbon fuels again.

  22. Raymond from Latta on

    “I woke today, felt your side of the bed,
    The covers were still warm where you’d
    been laying.

    “You were gone, my heart was full of dread,
    Benoit Pouliot might not be dressing again”

  23. Papa Bear’s Hockey Prospect’s is reporting tonight that collectively NY Ranger prospects are ranked 34th in the 30 team NHL.

  24. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Didn’t u watch that movie “day after tomorrow”? Global warming melts glaciers and ice caps, fresh water goes into ocean, desalinization occurs, ocean currents get colder, then ice hockey becomes most prominent sport in 90% of the world and it gets cold!!

  25. JR “They’re making ‘Dumb ‘n Dumber 2’ and asked me to play the dumb one… so i said ‘no way! i want the role of the dumber!'”

  26. JR: “Players today can really circumstantiate the the ice much better than in my day.”

    Yes they can, JR. Yes they can.

  27. Engblom=Best hair. Ever.

    Engblom=Philosopher at large.

    In fairness, Engblom and JR both seem like good dudes.

  28. Man I would feel a lot better about this team if the reports from Hartford were:
    “McIlrath is an NHL ready monster!” vs. the current message of “1980’s dance music and hair styles are alive and well, thank you!”

    Come on, oh baby don’t you want to go
    Oh come on, oh baby don’t you want to go
    Back to that same old place

    Hawks get 1 point tonight.

    Mashinter first star.

    How that Beach guy working out for you?

  34. It is a no brainer. Mashinter is a known commodity and had no future with the big club. Beach is young and has grit, size, and skill. Even if there is only a 10% chance that he will ever crack the NHL roster, you take the chance because you are giving up nothing. Let this kid play in Hartford and figure out if he wants to play hockey, give him a minimum qualifying offer this summer if there is potential, and over time, he may develop into the Neil/Ott/Clowe type player that we need.

    Engblom – “you are stupider”

    JR – “you are stupider”

    Engblom – “yeah you’re so inventive”

    JR – “you are so way more inventive”

  36. Matty"WeShouldWearPinkPanties!!"Boy on

    Yea, I kind of liked Mashinter’s name. Pretty cool sounding. He was slow as molasses.He’s not an NHL player, to me.

    Beach? Who knows.

  37. Henrik must stop passing the puck— it cost him a shut-out. It was like getting your thumb caught in your car door – you saw it coming but you couldn’t do anything about it. Beach could turn out ok. apparently he’s has skating problems and was trying work them out. Supposedly he has scoring potential with some grit which Gernander could work on up in Hartford. WE NEED MORE TOUGHNESS THAT’S OUR CURRENT WEAKNESS. MAN IF ONLY NASH WERE MEAN

  38. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Rock – “you two are morons”

    JR – “shut up rock, you can’t even talk”

    Englblom – “yeah rock, you can’t even talk. You’re a rock

    Rock – “like I said, I know clumps of dirt smarter than both of you combined”

    JR – “haha you’re so stupid, we aren’t even combined”

  39. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Lone Ranger – hank is horrid with the puck. It seems he really puts in the practice given how much he’s unimproved over the last 7 years.

  40. Matty"WeShouldWearPinkPanties!!"Boy on

    So, with 3 minutes left in the game, the Devils are losing, 2-1, are down a man and have had a TOTAL OF 10 SOG!!!!!!!

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! TEN, TEN, TEN shots on goal.

    And Homer Chico, the biggest filler of home town airspace there is, says:

    “Ya know, I really think the Devils, who have had 10, can get a couple more REALLY good opportunities in this game.”

    Oh boy. Derbils lost 3-1.

  41. Matty"WeShouldWearPinkPanties!!"Boy on

    LOL!!! Totally forgot about that!! Hysterical!! It WAS a bad call. Not even close (which I thought was pretty funny in any event as it was against the Derbils). But there’s Chico claiming had the call not been made, the Derbil’s, with their mighty 10 shots in 57 minutes, would have tied it up!!

    Thanks, again, Chico.

    Yes, quite the save. Quite.

  42. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Torts in his plane seat

    “Could I get some ******* ice in my ****** cup? Is that ****** too much to ******* ask? And when you get my ******* ice, turn on my ******* light and tighten my ******* seat belt”

  43. Matty"WeShouldWearPinkPanties!!"Boy on

    E3, The Ducks this year are mighty. So is Chicago, too, despite what one game discloses.

    Same with San Jose. They are mighty. But they sure got whipped by the suddenly awake Penguins. That was a pistol whipping. My gosh.

  44. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Pilot – “we are about to deco pressure the cabin, reach up and put your oxygen mask on”

    Torts – “I can’t ******* reach my ******* mask!! Can I ******* get some ******* assistance over here?”

  45. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    The ducks are big mean fast and skilled. They like to hit and don’t mind dirty play…

  46. Matty"WeShouldWearPinkPanties!!"Boy on

    I know, Latona. And agree. They match up well against us. The one thing we haven’t had against them was Hank with his Head On Straight, or HHHOS!! That contract was definitely bothering him. Let’s see how he plays tomorrow.

    But, yea, we have no match for Jagr, Zubrus, their whole 4th line, and the few other big, talented offensive players they have.

  47. Matty"WeShouldWearPinkPanties!!"Boy on

    They’re not the only team that’s like that, E3. That’s one of the reasons that it boggles my mind Sather has just NO IDEA, when you see the league’s better teams are all about size, playable toughness, speed AND skill, what’s he do?

    And when you see the most skilled team in a while, out east, Pittsburgh, get knocked out of the PO’s because of the lack of grit, what does he do?

    Yea, out there, SJ, Ducks, Kings sure can beat you many ways. Impressive teams. Tort’s team is not close to them.

  48. Matty"WeShouldWearPinkPanties!!"Boy on

    Daneyko is ‘Byfuglien ugly’. Dudes’ head is bigger than Trautwig’s. That is both an accomplishment and sad.

  49. Matty"WeShouldWearPinkPanties!!"Boy on

    And, Duguay sure dresses well……if you liked the ’80’s!! “Stayin’ Alive, Stayin’ Alive”. “Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah….Stayin alive, Stayin’ alive!!”

  50. Beach…..

    I saw somewhere that a Chicago fan was surprised they got anything for him and were glad to see him go. No defense, not enough offense,

    supposedly likes to scrap but loses all the time, concussions, etc. terrible teammate…

    I’m all over it…..

  51. Remember when Buffalo tried to deploy Zubrus against Jagr in the ’07 playoffs? Man, Jagr was AWESOME that Buffalo series..

  52. The “night crew” running out of steam ?

    It’s easy if riffing on Names, Facial features, things of the Culture past.

    Frankly, very funny, indeed. Keep it on fellas….

    Marchand’s nose vs Ritchie’s molars : cage match – who wins?

    I’d say the the teeth win, by a nose

  55. Stranger Nation on

    Watched a Youtube clip of Mr Ed all pissed off about Clint Eastwoods horse moving in on his mares.

    Show was a hoot

  56. I weally weally wike the way whittle Zuccawello pway. But he pwably have a witlle tinwee peewee,

  57. Mista Eddie, me go sweep now too. See you water, wen I wake up and birds are frying in the mawning wight.

  58. eddie3x, I am fine if a little busy. Still watching goings on this blog, it is still the best in the NHL.
    The danger is, though, not to take the “Dada” aspect beyond the intelligence of the average hockey fan.

    I can discuss with my wife the change of the geometry of the game with the recent change of rules and the concomitant rise in the whiplash-concussion injuries.

    The red line pass will have to be reinstated to prevent more grave injuries to players. (Don’t ask me about the details, please..)

    The ridiculous Brodeur behind the goal space has to be eliminated, so that we can let the refs watch for the real penalties to be called there.
