What can you say?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
There isn't much you can say after winning your first playoff game at home in 10 years by a score of 7-0. The denizens of MSG came ready to cheer on their blueshirts, it does help coming in up 2-0 in the series vs. 0-2 without Jagr like last year, and they weren't dissappointed. 32 seconds into the game Nylander scores his first of 3 on the night and the party was just ...
It was a rough finish to the rangers seaosn. They blow a 1-0 lead with 7 seconds to go in game 5. Then they lose 5-4 on home ice in game 6. Although there are a lot of "What ifs..." in this series, Rangers should be happy with what they accomplished. They didn't look like they were even in the playoff mix in February. Bring in some young guns, add a fiesty Sean Avery, ...
Last years run in the playoffs was cut short by a heart-stopping, gut-wrenching goal by co-captain Chris Drury of the Buffalo Sabres with 7.7 seconds left in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semi's. Scott Gomez was part of the New Jersey Devils team that swept the Rangers two seasons ago in the first round of the playoffs. Now they're both with us. With multiple Stanley Cu...

If no more moves . . .

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
What does Renney do if no more moves are made either via Free Agent signings or Trades? [b]Hossa - Drury/Gomez - Jagr Straka - Drury/Gomez - Shanahan Avery - Cullen - Callahan Prucha - Betts - Hollweg/Orr Malik - Rosival Tyutin - Girardi Staal - Mara Strudwick/Pock[/b] I don't know, but I see this as a lineup Renney will put on the ice if the team starts t...
I have always thought I had a good head for hockey, but I never knew I should have my own 5 minutes on the MSG network to speculate. Take a look at a collection of my three favorite posts over the past few months. You have to admit, I did pretty well in my statements. My one true errata that I sadly must admit is the fact that Jed Ortmeyer is no longer in the equation, ...
The series is moving along nicely and I want to thank my readers for their support. I have taken the comments from the prior installments into consideration and have therefore altered the second line from how it appeared in part 1. Keep the comments coming. Part 3, Here we go: Left Wing: #82 Martin Straka Personal: 34 years old from Plzen, Czech Republic. Stands 5 ft 9...

Ok, first off, I think Hossa is a wash. I don't like him. He's a big guy and yes, he's good along the boards, but he's not as good as his brother, period. He's only hit 18 points in the NHL and 40 in the AHL. Dawes only played 8 games and got a goal in the big league, but absolutely dominated the AHL. Dawes is just going to get better. For the love of everything t...

Rangers First Report Card

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
I know it’s still early for any serious evaluations and assessments and for that the Rangers should consider themselves lucky they still have some time to turn things around. However, I’ve decided to give brief evaluations on each of the Rangers players after every ten games throughout the year and track the team’s progress. So here is a brief comment on each playe...
The Rangers recorded their fourth straight win by beating the Flyers by a score of 2-0. Last week's "player of the week", Henrik Lundqvist recorded his fourth shutout in 14 games this season and helped the Rangers improve to 7-6-1 on the season. The Rangers completed a six game homestand in which they went 5-1, the only loss coming at the hands of the Maple Leafs. Tommorow...

A successful homestand

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
We have definitely been improving. The Rangers needed this homestand to get a confidence boost. Here are the offensive stats from the past six games: Dawes 3g Prucha 1g (shootout GWG), 2a Dubinsky 1a Jagr 2g, 3a Roszival 1g, 2a Mara 1a Shanahan 3g, 3a Drury 1g, 3a Staal 1a Gomez 1g, 2a Tyutin 2a Girardi 1a They've been low scoring games, but my count is...
Fact: In their previous 3 matchups, the Rangers managed only 4 goals against the rival Islanders. They lost all 3 games. Fact: In their two meetings this season. the Rangers got 1 goals against Martin Gerber and the Ottawa Senators. They lost both. Fact: The Rangers offense was last in the league in goals scored. There were more than a few rumblings about the sleepin...
As a Ranger fan, I am used to disappointment. We have memories of 1997-2004 that I am still trying to repress, but now in 2008, here is the situation that the Rangers are in: 1.) Inconsistency [the facts] 2.) The blame game [the frustration] 3.) Possible solutions [the realism] [b]Inconsistency[/b] The Rangers have had both mini and large streaks, be it the abysma...
Nobody has discussed this so far, but it seems pretty obvious that with Sundin in doubt, Tucker gone and McCabe on thin ice, the Leafs will be looking for a new captain - very likely from the free agent ranks or a trade. So with this in mind, I think the Leafs will have a close eye on these players in free agency. (1) Brendan Shanahan - Might be willing to sign sho...
If the Leafs stop adding Free Agents now, they'll carry enough cap space to bring Sundin back - should he decide to play. However, right now he isn't coming. Nobody has discussed this so far, but it seems pretty obvious that with Sundin in doubt, Tucker gone and McCabe on thin ice, the Leafs will be looking for a new captain - very likely from the free agent ranks or a tr...
The popular mindset during this offseason is to be skeptical of the moves, or lackthereof, made by Glen Sather and the New York Rangers. The Rangers were a solid team that had made the playoffs for three straight years while maintaining a core of veteran players. When Jaromir Jagr, Martin Straka and Brendan Shanahan did not re-sign with the club for the fourth post-lockout...

Shanahan to Test Open Market

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Larry Brooks, of the New York Post is reporting, Brendan Shanahan has apparently told his agent to consider all open offers. Shanahan told his agent he is tired of waiting for a roster spot to open up with the Rangers. It looks like he will probably not be going back to the Rangers then. Shanahan has always been considered an offensive threat, but as he has aged he has ...
I know its been a few days since Sean Avery's mouth did a drive-by on the topic of his "sloppy seconds" but I think its good to examine whether he is of good to this league or not. Its a relevant idea considering some analysts have made the bold prediction that Avery will not see NHL ice again. I definitely am not out here to defend him. His words were utterly disrespec...

Odd Man Out

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
With Brendan Shanahan signing a 1-year $800,000 deal, of which he will receive $400,000 for playing the second half of the season, Shanahan has officially become a member of the team that drafted him over twenty years ago, the New Jersey Devils. Throughout the first half of the season, the Devils have had four solid lines, even when their lineup was plagued with injuries t...

Shanny to NY?

Hey guys! Just wondering what you guys would think about bringing back Brendan Shanahan. Maybe 1 year 1 million. Tell me what you think.

Questions to Ponder

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
I think it's safe to say this is the most drab time of year in hockey world. A time when news is scarce, the free agent frenzy has been reduced to leftovers, and the only thing to do is count down the days until training camp starts. Scarce news doesn't necessarily mean there's nothing to talk about because I'm sure you can point out something about each team that's be wor...

Nobody Asked Me, But......

...I think Brendan Shanahan will do a great job as the new league disciplinarian. He has the combination of playing experience, intelligence and common sense to understand how the game should be played and officiated. ...I'm NOT REALLY DIGGING the new Predators home uniforms. Maybe when I see them in game action my mind will change, but right now, I'm reminded too much ...
During the waning minutes of the Jets game against the Pens last night Pens defenseman Kris Letang hit Jets forward Alex Burmistrov from behind, driving him into the side wall. A two minute penalty was assessed to Letang and the young Russian forward came away from the hit for the most part unscathed. The hit was from behind.....there is no denying that. Some say that B...

Send a Message

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
I’ve watched the replay numerous times. One thing needs to be done... and a clear message needs to be sent. Milan Lucic needs to be suspended, or have SOME type of consequence for his hit on Miller tonight. There’s no question. No matter how many times that I see the hit on Miller, Lucic intended to hurt him, and didn’t need to. The intent to hurt was clear. ...
The Islanders won a hard fought 5-4 victory over the Dallas Stars on Saturday night, and it can be termed hard fought for many reasons; the Isles saw a three-goal lead get washed away to a tie in the second period; Rick DiPietro pulled his groin, forcing Al Montoya to start the third period; the Stars kept coming back on the score board; and last but not least, Nino Nieder...

[b]"Big Splash"[/b] So Ek reports today that the Leafs([i]Burke[/i]) are([i]is[/i]) yet again proclaiming to the hockey world that they will be making bold moves this off-season. Not only will they be doing whatever it takes to get Rick Nash out of Columbus but they will also be signing a high end free agent. Haven't we heard this all before? Yes, of course we have ...

I can’t say that the end of the Buffalo Sabres season has been that painful. To be completely honest, I’m not really looking forward to next season. However, in the mean time, I’ve been enjoying some extremely entertaining hockey in the first round of the 2013 NHL playoffs. Unfortunately, things are getting out of control. It seems like every playoff season, ...

The Shanny Plan

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Of all the potential changes yet to occur in Leafland through possible trades, call-ups, free agency and the draft, I believe the biggest change has already occurred with the addition of Brendan Shanahan. For better or for worse, I believe Shanahan to be a person who will look to change how the organization is run and there will be plenty of changes behind the scenes and ...
Nikolaj Ehlers is a great young, proven skilled player who can play in the North American style of hockey. Ehlers aside from having proven independent skill, he's a great team player and a winger to boot and a left winger at that. He thrived on the Halifax Mooseheads playing with talent like Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin. He could easily fit in on a third or even se...
This is the the way I see this ship veering. Perhaps with a few of my own thoughts and theories, however this is the path upon which I believe the Leafs are embarking. In an attempt to add addition draft picks or in order to move up further into the top 10, Toronto General Manager Dave Nonis was hard at work pumping the phone lines and attempting to deal off some of hi...
So Randy Carlyle has finally bitten the dust. I had a good idea that one day I would be reading about the news here in Chicago at some point, but the timing to me makes no sense. The Leafs may as well bring in John Tortorella and really have some fun! I got a kick out of the TSN 1050 guys from this evenings chat talking about what a field day the media would have if To...
Ok the leafs ave shown the ability to score, and now to a point the ability for defense. Its eiter one or the other, why bad personnel tat don't mesh as a proper hockey team. The players are good but many missing factors. Want to improve it, its not a quick answer but a reset or 2-3 years as opposed to rebuild 4-5 years is all that is needed. Why here is a list of their st...
Its no surprise to anyone that the Leafs roster will look significantly different come the start of next season, I thought it would be fun to throw my couch potato GM’ing out there for others to read about. Not all of these would work together but all would be improvement for both teams. New York Islanders: Target: Griffin Reinhart + Josh Ho-Sang + Nikolai Kulemin ...
