Game 70: Another draft position game

The Rangers are in action tonight against the Canucks in a game that will again have impact on the draft. This will be the fourth straight game like this for the Rangers, and they’ve collected four of six points in these games. They have a fighting spirit. This is good! They are ruining their draft position. This is bad! The draft contains Potassium Benzoate (this is bad).

The Rangers’ lines were not released, and this has been an ongoing habit for David Quinn and company. We do know that Tony DeAngelo was not at the morning skate. Alex Georgiev was, so it’s likely Hank gets the start. As for the lines, well your guess is as good as mine.

  • So what exactly did ADA do to piss off DQ ? Was late for something ? Say something wrong ? Curfew ? Seems we won’t see him dressed for a few weeks u less another injury plagues us.

  • That escalated quickly ! … Kreider call I can see , Lemieux’s call was BS

  • Yeah Lemieux call was autrocious but helps in the tank with an excused loss….lol

    Seriously this team has proven enough, no need to get cute. It is a huge difference drafting 4th or 7th for players available.

    I don’t even think 1 of Podkolzin or Cozens will be available at 4 and neither should be at 5

    • ShittyKirk is even crappier then everyone thinks … horrendous in his own zone , got the beautiful assist on the 3rd one and turned it over at least 3-4 times so far

      • Yeah, and that dip stick James called Tanto, and myself delusional for stating Shatty couldn’t play a lick of defense. The guy is a joke back there!!!!!!

    • Yo Leather, this upcoming draft is the kind where the picks between 10 through 20 could end up as Rookie of Year ((ROY) candidates just as much as the top 5 – trust, man. I’m just psyched we got ourselves a second #1 from the Jets in this 2019 draft.

  • We need Edmonton to beat the Devils tonight. We won;t fall below the Devils but we could end up ahead of the Oil.
