    This offseason has been, eh? The offense and forwards weren't the problem last year and they've done nothing to help rebuild the defense other than letting Boyle retire.
    This remains to be seen. I'm disappointed that he's even with the organization still.

    Brandon Pirri has 4G,2A through 3 games and was scratched last night. Tanner Glass played. And fought. In the preseason.

    Boxscore says Pirri played?

    Glass will make this team though, even if its as an extra forward like last year before AV finds a way to settle him into a regular role. I would advise that everyone find something better to do with their time besides watching Rangers games for as long as he is still the coach since it seems like he hasn't changed the system, nor is he interested in icing the best roster possible.

    Thankfully, this should be his last season in NY. He and Glass can ride off into the sunset together.

    Bovada has the Rangers over/under at 95.5 points. I think I'm taking the under.

    Glass assigned to Hartford. We'll see how long that lasts.

    Looks like McIlrath will be traded before Thursday.

    Hopefully the team starts slow out of the gate and AV gets canned.

    Nice start to season, very nice win..

    Not loving the blown 2 goal lead in an eye blink early third period, but they strapped on the gear and took control of the game right back... Some single game extremely small sample size observations..

    -Damn this team is fast as hell. They roll all 4 lines and they seem to put constant pressure on. Loved that.

    -Defense was better than I thought it would be.. Holden and Clendening held their own, Mac was a beast, and dare I say Girardi looked pretty good. Staal was the one guy whose game I didn't love last night, but if Girardi plays like this alongside Mac, and we get a healthy Klein back soon, that D will start to look pretty good, and if it does, watch out..

    -The Kreider-Zib-Buch line, wow... damn... That's scary good stuff..

    -Dare I say we may have a decent, or even better than decent, PP?

    Again all one game, but against a quality opponent who usually plays against us like the fate of their first born children ride on the result. Faced adversity in surrendering a 2 goal lead in a near instant early 3rd period, last year that was a loss or a at the least a desperate hang on to the rope to get to OT game, and try to steal the 2 points. Last night they just shrugged it off and simply re-took over the game.
    Did not see that a lot last year.. Don't want to give up third period leads, but good to know it did not shake them..
    I used to think I was crazy... Now I am sure of it..

    Congrats to Jimmy Vesey on his first career NHL goal. Kreider looks like a new man this year. Hope he keeps it up. They're very fun to watch and if they can score 5+ a game, then maybe they can withstand having Girardi on the team.

    Every day it's looking more and more like a great trade they made with Ottawa. Can't believe Gorton got a 2nd round pick along with Zibanejad.

    We've been waiting awhile for this after the way he burst in, and it's great to see him playing like this.

    In the postgame after the opener, Kreider revealed that he's been working intensively with sports psychologists all offseason to correct his issues. Looking good so far

    I'm down in DC this weekend visiting family, so we checked out the game last night -- Rangers look a lot better early on defensively than I think we expected them to look. That third period defensive performance, against that team, was really impressive.

    Their team speed is pretty impressive, too. They just wear teams out. You get the feeling they're going to score a lot of third period goals as teams can't keep up with them late.

    Verizon Center is a loud building -- louder, at times, than MSG -- but it's loud because the people are yelling and screaming whenever the scoreboard tells them to yell. And they tell the fans to yell during almost every stoppage, even in the neutral zone. It's loud there, but it's not the gutteral sound MSG is. It's a very different kind of loud, and not a terribly hockey-savvy crowd. They even have a decibel meter up on one of the scoreboards at all times, which is pretty strange.

    Lots of Rangers fans in the house last night, too -- the "ZUCC" chants were loud, and I loved the fans singing the goal song after goals.

    Its early, but the Rangers are basically every statisticians dream right now.

    What could they accomplish with a legitimate first pairing guy to play with McDonagh and a real coach?

    I think Gorton gave AV a come to Jesus moment in the offseason and sold him on possession so there's a huge focus on winning faceoffs and maintaining puck control. D is obviously the black hole on the team, I think they find a way to get Trouba on the roster

    Did they waive him?

    It's fun coming back from 2 goals down, but not the best way to play hockey. We have such strong forwards they should be getting the first goal every game. Love Pirri's game so far. He's fitting in very nicely.

    Pirri is a specialist, it just goes to show you the value you're missing when you only focus on two way players. It's ok to have one dimensional players on the roster, in fact they are necessary to succeed
