    Staal has been playing better this year. Girardi isn't as much of a train wreck, but he's still done and needs to be bought out. McD is solid as per usual. Klein is holding his own. Skjei is a work in progress. Holden...had a good game or two? I dunno. Clearly they need to address the defense at some point this season. Glad to have banked so many points early.

    Not only did they lost to the stupid Islanders, they also lost Nash for at least a week and Vesey has an "upper body" injury. Status unknown for tonight's game.

    Henrik sits again tonight - first time in his career (at least since becoming the starter) he's been a healthy scratch 4 games in a row. Nash is "close".

    Why mess with the hot hand? Raanta is not stealing the job away from Hank. I say any extra rest he can get during the regular season is a bonus for keeping him healthy and peak hopefully into June.

    Hopefully Hank channels this in the right way. He's not losing his job, and the D is definitely playing better in front of Raanta so hopefully he's not bitter about this. The team needs to play better in from of him

    People making something out of nothing..
    They are riding the hot hand..

    If a backup player on a baseball team played 4 games in a row and got 3 hits each night, he'd be playing the next night. Not that he'd be taking away anyone's job, but you won't bench a guy who gets 3 hits every night (unless maybe you are Girardi... LOL)..

    But there is nothing to see here. Lundqvist is not losing his job, unless Raanta maintains his Hasek like impersonation for the rest of the year.. In which case we can all get together for the parade down the Canyon of Heroes and debate who should start on opening night next year..
    I used to think I was crazy... Now I am sure of it..

    Nick Holden has more points than Subban, Doughty, Streit, Gostisbehere, and yes, Yandle.

    I'll take it.

    Let's just let the cellar dwelling Sabres dominate us at home. Horrible 1st period.
    It has to get better. It can't get any worse.

    Grabner's game winning goal with 17 seconds left in regulation from the other night. Thing of beauty.

    Poor Seth Jones got roasted on both of those goals.

    When he gets hot, there aren't too many players who go on a tear like he can. I think he had 15 in 14 or some absurd with the Isles a few years ago.

    Hes one away from 20 already, and we're only half way through the season (with no PP time!)

    Hank wrote a letter to his 8 year old self and it's a joy to read.

    They aren't going far with this defense. And looks like the goalie got old fast.

    This thread has been dead this season.

    Rangers signed AV to a two year extension today.

    Ho hum.

    Re: Lets go Rangers! 2016-2017

    No posts in here for almost a month? I guess the rest of you have gotten all AV'd out too

    Honestly, this team is a move or two away from being really damn good. I have no faith in AV to ice the right team even if those moves are made so its really a moot point.

    Rangers acquire defenseman Brendan Smith from Detroit for a 3rd this year and a 2nd in 2018. Hey, at least he's younger than Eric Staal.

    I don't know much about Smith. I'm glad they didn't overpay for Shattenkirk and can just go after him this summer for just cash.

    Fast out 2-3 weeks. Maybe Buch gets another shot now? Or will we see the return of Glass?

    How come a guy who is in the NHL Top 20 in players salaries,
    can not even break the Top 150 in NHL scoring leaders ?
