Rangers-Hurricanes in review

208

Apologies for the technical difficulties last night. No idea why the Go Time! post disappeared. Will try to figure it out. Don’t forget Sunday’s game is a 12:30 NBCer, and we move the clocks on Saturday. So it’s a really early game.

First and foremost, a special great job! and congrats! to our friend Gift of Gab, whose charitable work resulted in this wonderful story. Click here.

Thoughts:

1) Real dual-personality game. Some guys who really hadn’t been doing much, in this game, and lately, got it done late, especially two of the three guys who are supposed to make up the top line. I also thought the Rangers, even though they were out-chancing the Hurricanes by a decent margin, weren’t doing enough around the offensive net.

2) On the other hand, I thought they handled the area around the defensive net much, much, much better than they had since the last 12 seconds vs. Chicago and through the losses to Philly, Boston and Toronto (I don’t really care what Alain Vigneault’s scoring chances chart said, they were sloppy). I really did think they got that fixed. And that goes for the defensemen and the forwards (with the exception of the nightly defensive lapse of Chris Kreider on the 1-0 goal). That kid still has so much promise, but he really needs to figure out the away-from-the-puck game and quickly in this homestretch. Remember, the best thing the Rangers had been doing when they were on that streak heading into the Olympic break and winning all those road games, was defending. They got their offense from that. They got back to defending tonight.

New York Rangers v Carolina Hurricanes3) Henrik Lundqvist, of course he gives up the first goal, high glove — great shot and all — after Rangers can’t buy one. But Lundqvist was strong the rest of the night. Can’t blame him on the penalty shot, though it sure appears that opponents have stopped deking and are straight out trying to beat him with the shot, either glove or 5-hole, whichever he gives them.

4) The Daily Nash-O-Meter. I don’t know. He didn’t show me a lot at even strength, and on the 5-on-4 power plays. I guess you give him credit for a pretty good PK, then a great play on the SHG, and because he scored the tying goal. I wasn’t in love with his overall game. He supplied offense. If he does that, you live with anything else, for sure.

5) Same for Martin St. Louis. The guy sure is crafty and has a great hockey IQ and vision. And while I don’t expect him to win any Selke Trophy, at least he appears to give it a helluva try in the other end … more than at least three or four other Rangers forwards. That pass on the 5-on-3 goal by Derek Stepan was a thing of beauty. So were some of the chances he created for himself, and for his teammates.

6) And while St. Louis is the Rangers’ best offensive player in terms of ability, Mats Zuccarello continues to be the season-long best Rangers forward by a mile. He was in this game, just as he was in most of the games before his Olympic injury. He gave up an early chance for a good shot, and I wondered if the hand was bothering him. Answer: No. Guy was great all night. And it was kinda fun when he played a bit with St. Louis.

7) That said, sometimes coaches go by contracts/reputations/hockey cards when deciding who gets PP time, instead of going with the unit that, you know, works. I thought Nash and Stepan were OK all along in this game, and got it done late, actually, but especially meh on the power play while the real No. 1 unit of Zuccarello-Derick Brassard-Benoit Pouliot sat on the bench. The 5-on-4 hasn’t been good since the Stadium Series, IMO.

8) The PK, on the other hand, was good in this game, and don’t forget for a minute that strong 5-on-3 kill.New York Rangers v Carolina Hurricanes

9) Ryan McMonster. I am trying to not mention him and Brian Leetch in the same sentence every game … but I’m biting my tongue to not do it. Hey, McDonagh had a lousy game (by his standards) vs. Toronto and just rebounded big time last night. He was superb long before the short-handed goal he scored, which was only an enormous goal. McDonagh wasn’t alone. All six D-men bounced back nicely.

10) This intent to blow the whistle rule has opened a giant can of cop-out for the refs. Just awful. They can just tell Toronto, “Hey I intended to blow the whistle” when in fact they got the call wrong. It allows them to come up with a reason to disallow a goal call that they might have botched. That puck was in the net. The ref copped out.

11) That puck over glass delay penalty is a necessary evil. Too bad. But if they take out that stupid rule, there won’t be any more icings. Guys will just fire it over the glass, get a stoppage and a change. As somebody suggested on Twitter last night, you could make the puck-over-glass the same punishment as icing — no player change, defensive-zone draw. The danger is, though, every time a player feels any pressure in the defensive zone, bingo, he wings it over the glass. You’ll have four-hour games.

12) Gotta say, though, the officiating was top-notch overall in this game again. That’s sarcasm, kids. My gosh, some of those little tugs are hooks, but serious slashes and spears are not penalties. And I’m not sure the Brian Boyle elbowing penalty was a penalty at all.

13) How in Holy Hell does Carolina get a breakaway off the faceoff after the empty-netter?

14) Sometimes — often — the opposing goalie is praised when the Rangers really make it easy on him. I didn’t think that was the case in this game. Not that the Rangers were great offensively 5-on-5, but the kid in net, Anton Khudobin, really almost stole this game.

15) ICYMI, a very funny moment in the post-game presser. Alain Vigneault was having a coughing fit. He apologized, saying he must have been yelling too much at “that French referee.”

  1. Great recap, always enjoy your insight. 5 on 3 kill was awesome. As you poont out whats up with Krieder? Welcome back Zuccs! What do you think its going to cost to extend him?

  2. In a cap system, a guy has to play to his money, or better,
    if he’s gonna be part of the solution.

    Other night, Carp, you asked a Hank critic if there would have been fewer goals if Hank was making fewer bucks.

    And the answer, surprisingly, is not self-evident. Lots of extra pressure, some of it self-imposed, when an athlete is making big dough. In this case, did I read Hank is making a whopping 20% more than any other goalie in the league? So maybe six-million Hank stops a few of those lately automatic breakaways, ’cause he’s more comfortable and confident?

    But the key, in a cap system, is that Hank’s extra millions diminish the everyday roster, just like Anchor Rick’s do. If each of those guys was making a few millions less, imagine the kind of player or two the
    team could afford, maybe even one who can finish!!!:-)

    Eli Manning’s take has been killing the Giants the last few years – there just aren’t as many guys on the field
    with the skills to make game-turning plays.
    Same with Rangers now.

    So Hank’s ‘tending has to be judged at a higher level.
    If he doesn’t produce at that crazy-rich altitude, most nights, not enough guys on the roster with enough goals in their sticks to redeem him…

    My own guess is this will prove to be another in the Ranger/Sather boatload of bad contracts.

  3. And, yeah, I almost always enjoy your post-game work:-).
    Don’t always agree, but it’s good stuff no matter.

  4. they dominated that game.

    nobody wants to deke Hank. Just shoot. that was a great shot.

    Welcome back Zuccarello, it looks like you are still the best guy on the team…………..

    Detroit is pretty disciplined…come out hard Sunday.

  5. Thanks for another great writeup, Carp. Seems like MZA is the new heart and soul of this team’s energy. Continue to like Dom Moore’s contributions on the 4th line in that department, anjd they continue to keep the opposing forwards pinned in their own zone and generate chances.

  6. Good morning, boneheads!

    Great, great work, Gift Of Gab! We all need to learn from you how to be determined and generous.

    Gonjon- except Hank is still making $6.875M this year. His contract you’re referring to starts next season.
    I thought Nash was actually much better last night, he won a few battles in the corner, and was stronger on the puck.

    Ryan McDonagh is truly developing into what Montreal didn’t think would be possible- you can’t call him a pure shutdown defenseman anymore.

  7. Yeah, I was actually surprised at Nash’s play last night. I haven’t seem him battle and hit like that in a while. I thought he had a solid game, he just doesn’t always have quality chances, if any. He does some stupid blue line shots and thinks he can handle the puck into the middle. Anyways, he’s no Stamkos or Ovechkin. Just an upgraded bigger Gaborik.

  8. Gabby has quicker hands and better hand eye coordination but isn’t as good at deking. Wonder what would’ve happened in ECF if he had 2 functional shoulders…

  9. Read that nhl.com article…nice work, Gift of Gab! You wear your heart on your sleeve!

  10. Stranger Nation on

    weird game for sure, we never scored 5v5 ;-)
    Zucc and Pullout are the only guys who crash the net. They are on our most effective line…simple math
    Klein had one of his best games
    Girardi blasted from behind into boards, but no call?
    Dom Moore might be the most effective center on the team…yeesh

  11. Until we have a group of dmen that are both capable of and committed to playing effective, physical defense and at least two quality two way center men we’re just watching 82- game seasons for fun. Name 2 contenders that have defensive lapses late in games like we’ve seen from this team along with dmen that can’t physically take guys out of a play.

  12. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    I know I’m in the minority here, but I consider trading hank before his new contract kicks in.

  13. What struck me about -Nash- is he lost a one on one battle for a puck behind the Carolina net against a tired defensmane who was probably 4 inches smaller and 30-40 lbs lighter than he is.

    He lost it because he has minimal “compete” in his DNA.

  14. IWicky, I agree and posted on here the same thing. I don’t care what anybody tells me, Talbot is the real deal and is 26 years of age. I would trade lundqvist also, now that he is signed the rangers could get a nice package for him but we all know that won’t happen.

  15. Missed game but saw highlight. Not sure about Kreider comment. McDonough turned puck over at blue line creating 2 on 1 on Giaradi. Staal shots scores. Kreider coming back to pick up his man after turn over but his man didn’t score.

  16. Nice read Carp.
    I agree playing the stars on the PP is frustrating at times, but there is no better way to “get them going” and score some goals if someone is slumping. Coaches know that, and that is why we bitch about it every year.
    Great character win tonight… This one can set a tone

  17. Papa, I think the concussion has something to do with this…he’s wary of doing anything that could cause a problem during his recovery…I could be wrong, but I’m waiting until next year with Gnash, think he’ll be a beast. He seems to slowly be regaining his “fight” during the return.

  18. SMH at the hostility by those with an agenda against Nash.

    Supposedly, the Rangers have 3 of the best defensemen in the league, James.

  19. Wild places, watching -Nash- for 2 seasons now.

    He may have super star skill. but he
    Iacks the desire/ effort / compete of a superstar player.

    Think about this. You think if he consistently played up to his elite talent level, Carp would have a Daily Nash O Meter in his game review?

  20. >>10) This intent to blow the whistle rule…

    That rule blows! Stuff like this makes the NHL quite laughable. Olympic hockey does it the right way; it’s the sound of the whistle that counts.

  21. Kreider has been absolutely terrible the last 15 games or so.

    It’s time for him to go to Prucha land.

  22. I’m fine with trading Hank. I thought the contract was absurd. I will always think that. Because, your goaltender cannot be the highest paid player on your team. It isn’t a formula that wins cups.

    But this organization wouldn’t do anything like that. Because trading Hank would be a step backwards and they simply won’t take it.

  23. Stranger Nation on

    Put Hags with Bros and Nash
    MZA with Bucky and StL
    THE with Step and Pullout

  24. Please don’t bush-league THE Kreider by pairing him with ever-useless Kentucky Fried Poulet

  25. Manny that’s exactly right. The win now go for it now crap is and has always been the problem here. Look at how many teams that have made it to the Stanley Cup finals since 2004. You’ll see the perennial contenders- Chicago Pittsburgh Boston..then you’ll see the teams that just got hot/had fate on their side- Edmonton, Carolina, Calgary..the rangers would be more like the later teams who for the most part have all have gone back to at least semi dismantling the roster and rebuilt/are rebuilding whether they won or lost. If you are middle of the pack and every summer make a trade or ufa signing that “kinda” works out you you stay middle of the pack. At best.

  26. The problem with THE Kreider is not a) his physical skills – skating, checking, b)defensive acumen or even c) his scoring ability. What you see is purely a result of who he is playing with. Now it would be great if he was able to come into this league and play in every situation and woith every combination, but he isn’t there yet. Nash with THE is a mistake. Nash is for the most part a solitary player (though that pass to McOrr last night got my attention) and sucks all the air out of the line. I think THE is trying to fit in but between Nash and a sliding Stepan the ability to get the most out of THE is limited to playing a supportive role (and, IMO, well) but it’s not making this team better.
    Try him with Brass and Zucc. If POOL-YO can become a factor then . . . . .
    Carp, I think you’re really cutting hairs with your view of Kreider’s role on the first goal.
    Kreider’s best play last night? That rush to the net that caused 4 pairs of gloves in his face. No one else on this team can do that right now.

  27. Just play 4 skaters…obvious..right…of course that would give The Kreider zero minutes! Hank is slowly getting back into his groove…MZA..sign his Extension NOW…did anyone else cringe when Richards hurt his hand? Sign of things to come?

  28. why is everything seem to be a penalty shot now? I saw a penalty shot called in a thursday night game (can’t remember who) but these are just penalties. I know a shot was not taken but really??? If it’s going to be a penalty shot then I say make the penalty count and tackle the guy hard!

  29. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Wicky and tommy, I too, am a TAM man…..cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good….

  30. That goal by McDonagh was Leechian. A thing of beauty. As was Marty’s pass to Stepan.

    Solid win. Let’s keep it going. Big game against the Wings tomorrow.

    LOL…that referee last night was ridiculous. I loved when he gave his winded explanation for the non-goal call. Kenny Albert was joking “Translation….No goal”

  31. All thru the 70’s n 80’s there would be a total of 2 pen shots a yr for your team. It was wild and special.

  32. Nash is the first Ranger to score 20 this year( excluding MSL). He is now killing penalties, and participated in both tying goals- scored one and had a primary assist on another. Eric Staal, who makes over $9M this year, was on the ice for 3 goals against, including McD’s, whom he couldn’t catch up with in the middle of the ice and left him open to shoot. Imagine if he was playing in NY? The fans would eat him alive for breakfast. Dogs breakfast, that is.

  33. I don’t recall people asking to trade Hank when they were on the winning streak. To out this issue to rest, iirc Larry Brooks mentioned that even though Hank’s new contract starts this year, his NMC kicks in immediately. I could be wrong, does anyone remember? That is certainly allowed by the new CBA.

  34. Guess Slats wishes he tied up Zucc for a few years at 1.1 mil. Guess Topo’s glad he didn’t offer it.

  35. Eric Staal also almost broke Richards’ fingers, ilb … but realized it was too early to prevent the buyout. They play April 8. He can do it that day.

    I seem to remember that about the NMC … but don’t count on my memory. I can’t remember where my car is.

  36. I’m not really concerned about a NMC or NTC or whatever. There are ways to get a player to leave and give you a list.

  37. ILB, forever defending -Nash- :)

    I get the comparison of -Nash- to Staal. Two wrongs don’t make a right – and I’d rather have Staal and his Stanely Cup win than Nash any day of the week and twice on the weekend)

    But for arguments sake, Let’s also compare Nash to some other #1 picks in their draft years like:

    -Nash- and Sydney, or

    -Nash- and Tavares, or

    -Nash- and Stamkos, or

    -Nash- and Ovechkin, or

    -Nash- and Kovulchuk, or

    -Nash- and Kane

  38. The point to be made about Hank is that Sather screwed up big time. He was probably urged on by Dolan, who knows nothing about hockey but views Hank as the “face of the franchise”

    It is a moot point. This is a 7 year marriage, in good times and bad times, in sickness and health, for better or worse, unless early voluntary Hank retirement do they part.

  39. Oh I see her face
    Everywhere I go
    On the streets
    And even at the picture show.
    Sal Messina.
    Tell me Sal Messina.

  40. I’m still not sure about the buyout injury thing. How’s about a player is day to day..nicked up with a few games left. What’s the lines of demarcation? It really shouldn’t matter we ought to sit him as often as possible and definitely at the end, way too important not to buy Richards out. None of that I’m afraid is going to happen though.

  41. I’m not defending anyone. When he stinks, he stinks. When plays well, he deserves a credit. When is suck in the middle, he plays “good” :-)

  42. CARP, Manny commanded that eric was the only one who was allowed to go avatarless.. :)

    ilb, is it lunch point worthy?

  43. Why do you miss it? Does Kermit’s reporter garb remind you of your own shortcomings (see: by/from) as a news person?

  44. “I’m still not sure about the buyout injury thing. How’s about a player is day to day..nicked up with a few games left. What’s the lines of demarcation? It really shouldn’t matter we ought to sit him as often as possible and definitely at the end, way too important not to buy Richards out. None of that I’m afraid is going to happen though.”

    Slats: “What’s our line of demarcation?”

    Jeff Gorton: “What?”

  45. ThisYearsModel on

    Didn’t the refs ignore a spear to Boyle’s onions before he went into the box? Eric Staal did about nothing but slash Richards’ hands. Remember when the only slashing called was when you slashed someone’s stick in half? Slashing someone’s hands? No problem. That “French” ref was clueless, and he sounded like Roman Troy Moronie in Johnny Dangerously. Farging icehole.

  46. Don’t know yet, Latona. Mrs is deciding.

    Hedberg- if a said player isn’t cleared to play by med personnel, he can’t be bought out.

  47. That French Ref, St. Pierre, or something, is reportedly reviled throughout the league.

  48. That picture up top is worth a chuckle or two.

    Hadn’t Khudobin not let up more than 3 in any game this season?

  49. Not having an avatar = Bush-League

    He only did it to upset me. So you guys can blame me.

  50. I’m a little surprised we haven’t seen too many legal battles ( I think Cloutier and someone else challenged it) regarding buyouts yet. Players at the end of their career, who have chronic recurrent injuries can always claim there were not fully ready to play while being bought out and try and seek a second medical opinion to maximize their salaries. In general, though, it isn’t in player’s best interest to play up an injury because they wind up getting a raise if they sign their next contract right away.

  51. The Rangers need to patch up their passing. They’ve become predictable once again. Stop showing the opponents where your going to pass before you do. Zucc is one who doesn’t really do this, and why he creates much more offense. That’s what was good about Stepan too, but lately he’s been giving it away.myes I know we scored four last night, but out PP looks like last year again. Quick puck movement, player movement, and deception will help.

  52. Out of curiosity, why would the Rangers not be allowed to buyout Richards if he is hurt?

    Does he then have the right to refuse to be bought out or are the Rangers then forbidden to buy him out? That’s a major difference.

  53. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    And it’s time, you understand the reason why…..I can’t believe, it’s happening to me……and it’s true, it only goes to show….

  54. Sometimes in May, I watch the Rangers with my better half at a campsite, but I find that we are two in tents.

  55. Oleo- valid points. Financially, it’s in Richards’ best interest to be bought out this summer. Depending on how his bonuses are structured, he will collect between $51-$53M of his $60M contract with another 6 years left. He can sign a 3-4 year deal elsewhere and make well over $60M at the end.

  56. So if he is not medically cleared on May 1 but then is on June 1 even though their season is over he can be bought out before July 1?????

  57. On the the way to Peabody and Shermin with my Granddaughter. I think I’m in the running for Poppy of the Yesr!

  58. ThisYearsModel on

    We need someone with the skills to make up a jersey for the Brooklyn Tire Fires.

  59. Every player has his ups and downs during the season, but nobody disappoints me more this season than our hopeful kid-Kreider. IMHO,he is a fast moving tree-stump with hockey IQ, which make Carsillo look like a chess Grand Master(no offence to 3E) and this, my friends, you can’t teach.Occasionally,he will create something and even score, but he looks lost on the ice most of the time and is not and I’m afraid, never be a 1st line material.I was telling that about arguably talented MDZ from the end of his very successful 1st season and sadly believe it’s a case here. It is like a glass ceiling, almost invisible, but which stops development of physically gifted players at some point. And it will take a long time, when most of the faithful will talk about his youth,excellent physicality and talent(which would perhaps perfectly suited in a sport of high jumping)before ultimately realizing that. I really wish that I’m wrong,however,I think that he will outwear his welcome rather soon even in the merry Home of Miami Pimp, who will have to find another “THE” among those clowns.

  60. -Nash- is not a puck hog. He’s very charitable. He willingly gives it away to opponents with minimum resistance over and over again.

  61. I’m not sold on Krieder either. You see it a lot in the NHL, big kids, drafted really, really high out of college. They look great in the college game, but it doesn’t translate to the NHL. They’re not playing against other pure hockey animals that have ONLY hockey to rely on, like in the OHL and the Q. Kreider skates hard and shoots hard…not much else.

    You look at a guy like Callahan. American kid. Undersized. He didn’t play college hockey. He went to Canada to play with the animals and cut his teeth. He was drafted low and clawed his way up. He got sent back to Hartford once and came back and earned an A and then a C.

    I really think that’s a huge huge reason why a guy like Callahan stands head and shoulders above guys like Gilroy, Stepan, Boyle & Krieder in terms of snarl and tenacity. There are exceptions to every rule, but in general I do wish the Rangers would start to avoid college kids.

    And I’ll address the obvious McDonagh…but let’s call a spade a spade and remember that he’s a surprise to everyone, literally thrown away by Montreal.

    Look at the list of Hobey Baker award winners and ask yourself how most of those NHL careers worked out. Good thing they had educations to fall back on.

  62. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    ILB
    Fwiw, I’ve been saying trade hank for quite a while and was in no way, shape, or form interested in signing him to a contract anywhere close to the one he got!

    Problem with ENIGMA isn’t on the opposite wing of his line it’s the 3C centering it and the marbles inside his own ENIGMA mind.

    I think we need some line juggling for once.

  63. >>15)

    Mr. Vigneault should stop referring to French speaking Canadians as French. Bettman ought to fine him for referee abuse.

  64. How can you have an NHL ref who doesn’t speak English and can’t make his speech intelligible?

  65. Good thing he doesn’t understand English, or #19 would have had a bench minor for abuse of officials.

  66. bull dog line on

    Wicky,
    I saw your comment earlier about trading Hank. while it impossible now, I would have traded him over this past summer. for a few different reason. one is, I do not believe your goalie should be the highest paid player on the team. two is, to me he still has a lot to prove. for an elite goalie he does not make saves in big spots. penalty shot last night, and the other night when they came from 2 down to tie he lets one in. its big saves in big spots, and to many times Hank lets one in in the big spot.

  67. bull dog line on

    and while I am glad Hank and Girardi stayed, I can’t help but feel Sather missed a big opportunity by signing them instead of trading them.

  68. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    I agree about goalie being the highest paid player (they shouldn’t), and I still think hanks stats are a bit padded by the torts system he was in.

    A top five goalie in the league, but it usually isn’t a top five that wins the cup, it’s usually a 6-12 type goalie that wins it.

  69. bull dog line on

    also the McDonagh to Leetch comparisons are a bit of a reach. this is not a knock on McDonagh, but Leetch was one of those rare players with instincts above and beyond anybody else. I think a better comparison is to Scott Neidermayer.

  70. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Anyone want to guess with our current roster where we rank in the league with fighting majors??

  71. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    Yep, dead Falking last with 6.

    2 of which belong to Boyle, and one each to Nash, ENIGMA, j Moops, and carbomb (or a VBIED if you prefer).

    Thankfully they didn’t count mcdonut letting Crosby hump him at centre ice as a fight.

    This team is so soft it’s sickening!!!

  72. What is the common thread of these forwards which is about all of them..Bras, The, Hags, pullout, Moore, Boyle, Richards, Step, Nash….. They all disappear for multiple games at a time. Some worse than others, some more skilled, some higher paid, some young and some old. Completely annoying, it’s the compete and focus level. Soft and comfortable ain’t getting it done in the playoffs. At least the D seems to compete most nights, they make their share of mistakes but they rarely disappear. Build from the goalie and D out. We got speed and some skill. Desperately need grit and a edge on the offense and a banger on the D.

  73. Eddie Eddie Eddie on

    Last 20 games of the season is when the cream rises….Watch Brassard go 20 for 20.

  74. MSL might have been the best player traded. Just wondering if he was the best player for the Rangers.

  75. Im pretty shocked that Carcillo has had 1 fight as a Ranger. There’s been plenty of times where he could’ve thought. He’s played well while on the leash though.

  76. Dorsett signed to 2 mil contract for next season. Carcillo, presently making 850, is UFA.

    That’s about the tenth person that taught mods no about having love for the game….must have been a slow learner…

    Winnipeg has leap frogged over the Nucks. The bell tolls for torts. The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. The bell rang 23 times. One for each man on the torterellas…

  81. Slats should have traded Dorsett at the deadline. Could have gotten a 3rd round pick for him, or maybe a playoff team desperate enough would have given a 2nd.

    I like the guy, but clearly we didn’t need him when he was gone.

    I know he’s better than Carcillo, but Carcillo is cheaper and has played well.

  84. Eddie, my little one was on the edge of her seat the whole movie long. Warms my heart to see how innocent and pure she is.

  86. Any tweet from the Lighting twitter feed about Callahan’s missed shootout attempt?

    It was like a home game for the Bruins in Tampa. Tuuuuuka chants and LETS GO BRUINS chants….

    basically Don Cherry ripped Cally for wanting and then not taking 6 for 6, especially since he’s only scored 11 goals.
    the idea that he allowed the $$ to overwhelm the idea of being the Captain for the New York Rangers
    as well as thinking that TB isn’t going to pay him that
    (and i think he inferred that he doesn’t think he’ll get a better deal than what Sather offered……..also that Sather was a gritty type player so he knew Cally’s worth…and possible short shelf life)

  88. Carp
    dropped the puck
    Van 4th line played like an energy line
    and drew a penalty
    pp for Van

    Carp
    Paraphrasing a bit, basically said he was crazy for not taking the 6×6 offered by rangers. Said cally is a good player and a good Irish lad, but had like 11 or 14 goals and plays a gritty game. To throw away being captain of the New York rangers on a 6×6 deal over a NTC was just ridiculous.

    Bieksa just sent giordano to the lockerroom bloody after a fight.

    I would trade any d man not named mcdonut for bieksa

  91. iWicky "Frag Out!!!" on

    By the sounds of jt millers last couple of ahl games, time to sit Hagar and put miller in.

  92. and to make it even worse
    Liam tweeted something about being
    sick and leaving
    (unless he was being figurative…)

  93. >>Cally misses in the shootout…

    His bad decision to leave NYR must still be weighing in his mind. In that case, he’ll be missing in those shootouts for some time to come.

    Incidentally, one of my favourite TV documentaries is CNBC’s American Greed. It can also be found on Hulu.

  94. :)) You mean, let me understand this… you mean… cuz maybe it’s me…Smart how? How am I smart? Smart like a clown? :)) Classic.

  95. Of the Rangers remaining 17 games, only 6 are against current playoff teams, and most are teams barely in it: San Jose, Philly, Columbus, Minnesota, Colorado, Montreal.

  96. 在我的故乡——封丘县东丈八村,夜幕一来临,欢乐的舞曲便开端在村上空到处流利。无论是在屋前的旷地上,也无论是在整齐、空阔的院子&#3732
