Thoughts And Musings

Hello all. Let’s dive right in. -I don’t like these proposed rule changes. Although 2-on-2 hockey would be exciting, it would just be weird. I say to keep it the way it is. -I know he has absolutely no leverage, and it will probably play out like the Dubinsky situation last season, but let’s get Marc Staal signed. He’s our…

The Importance of Marty Biron

On July 1st, the Rangers made perhaps their best signing in years. Yeah, Marian Gaborik has been terrific. And signings like Marty Straka and Michael Nylander a few years back were golden. But Marty Biron brings something that the Rangers haven’t had in a while: A backup goalie We all know Henrik Lundqvist is one of the top 5 goalies…

Thoughts And Musings

Welcome to another edition of Thoughts And Musings, where it’s mostly Rangers, a little pop culture, and few random non-sequiturs. Let’s dig right in. -It really sucks having no hockey. I need my hockey fix -This is definitely the lull period for hockey. Unless  Kovalchuk  signs with us, then it’s boring city for awhile. -Speaking of Kovy, if the Devils…

Thinking About The Power Play

Ever since Jaromir Jagr left, and even a bit before, the power play has sucked. The Rangers have offensive stars like Marian Gaborik, but they just can’t put the biscuit in the hole. This is extremely frustrating. The one thing that the Rangers don’t do well is setting up. From the rush to setting up in the zone, the Rangers…

Thursday Thoughts And Musings

Welcome to our new, regular feature. I’ve done this a few times here before, but expect a lot more of it. Sorry. -I like the Todd White pickup. Sure, he relegates Dubi and Prospal to the wing. But, White, when paired with top line talent does really well.  A line of Frolov-White-Gaborik or Dubinsky-White-Gaborik is a legit top line. Oh happy day….

On Involving Youngsters

The Rangers are pretty lucky to have a lot of youngsters who are contributing,ready to contribute, or are on the verge of contributing. It seems like it’s been forever since the Rangers have had this. You know the names: MDZ, AA, Gilroy, McDonagh, Stepan, Grachev, Krieder, MZA, . These guys are very close to being contributors to a championship team….

Early, Early, Early Line Predictions

Now that Alex Frolov is in the fold, I think it’s safe to say that the Rangers are done with free agent signings. They have to re-sign Marc Staal, and I think they will. They may demote Wade Redden. They may sign an AHLer. But, for the big club. this is about it. With training camp getting closer each day,…

Thoughts And Musings

Hello friends. It’s been awhile, I know. But that’s what having surgery will do to you. Everything went well, and I was out of the hospital in 36 hours (modern medicine is amazing). I’m pretty much 100% and by the end of the weekend I will be. Once again, I love modern medicine. I do a feature called Thoughts And…
