Sunday Reads

December 4, 2011, by

5 in a row, 12 of 14, best record in the league. That there makes pretty reading doesn’t it? With the Rangers on a free day before skating at the Garden Monday morning it figures to be a slow news day so just go and enjoy the adulation you’ll likely read around the World Wide Web. The Rangers go for win number 2500 against the Leafs on Monday and with a 7-1-1 record and a ton of momentum (not to mention the Leafs faltering) there’s a good chance they get it. Let’s hope so. Here’s your Sunday Link Dump.

I don’t usually post the beat writer’s links here because, well, most of you know where to go for those guys’s stuff. That said I want to highlight Andrew Gross’ wrap. Why? Sean Avery. Gross, stating it’s his own opinion indicates a potential lack of trust for the lack of ice time Avery received after two periods. The way he writes it I’m OK with Tort’s decision too. If you’re chasing a game, one in which you need to stay disciplined and get hold of the puck you need your top guys out there. Hey, it paid off.

For your junior fix, Jess at the Prospect Park talks JT Miller and the Rangers prospects right here. I for one think Miller should head to the AHL next year as the way the Rangers are going and with Kreider dominant I don’t see any ice time for the rookie in NY. I think the hysteria wouldn’t do him any good either right now. Let the kid play, absolutely no rush right now.

For a dose of realism (?) or at least tempering some people’s hysteria, Rangers Review looks at the game last night, looking at the good and the bad.

Side note: Anyone that follows me on Twitter and see my Rangers goal tweets; you think Sam Rosen should adopt them? How entertaining would that be? Ok, maybe he’d get sacked. Never mind………

I love reading his mail bag and I’m sure many of you do too, but if not familiar then check out Darren Dreger and his question and answer sessions. If it’s to Canada-centric for you, write in and complain. Or just tell me not to post it again; whatever.

For you Chris Kreider fans, the Boston Globe checks out last night’s revenge win against Boston University. Kreider scored his twelfth goal of the year in the game and keeps on rolling.

Last but certainly not least on this lazy Sunday is news of the latest win for the CT Whale. The PP absolutely exploded for the baby Rangers and was certainly the key to the win. Good to see Andre Devaux take his demotion to the AHL well (also, take note who scored for the Falcons…)

Anyway, that’s your Sunday reads. I’m a Giants fan so anyone on twitter later today that sees me foul mouth and bitch about my NFL team’s latest defeat knows why: Aaron Rodgers and the Packers is why. Pessimistic? Uh-huh.

    I don’t think Miller can play in the AHL next year. He’s still only 18.

      I’d have to double check but I think he can regardless of age.

      He was drafted by the Rangers while in the USNTDP program and not out of the CHL which changes his eligibility.

      In some ways a little like Grachev and the Euro draft situation
