398 A few more thoughts on the Rangers’ Talbot trade

More thoughts: 1) So what happened Friday with Cam Talbot? Well, some of the fallout might provide some clues. We know that Buffalo dropped out early when it got Robin Lehner for a first-rounder. You can argue whether Lehner’s better than Talbot. His stats don’t say he is. But he’s…

207 Rangers’ draft in review

Thoughts: 1) Right now, at this very moment, I think the Rangers are not as good as they were when they last played a hockey game. That’s just me. But when they were eliminated, I thought that they had only one legit first-line player, and he proved once again incapable…

Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) That’s a pretty enormous win, fairly gutsy, etc. And I certainly don’t want to be Negative Nancy or Debbie Downer. But, Alain Vigneault might want to go against his “never critique a win” creed before Game…

Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) So what do you make of that game? Not sure at all what I make of it, or where it came from, when 2-1 scores and smothering defense and superb goaltending were the order of the…
