    If he's keeping 90, what will Georgiev be wearing?

    Sorry if it's been asked and answered.

    Vladdy is my new fav. He wears my old HS number! Never thought I'd see a #90 on the Rangers.

    Well obviously we know that, but there's some real opportunities to confuse the opposition here, especially if we get Buch hammering out fluent English.

    Get Buch to speak fluent English and have Kreider speak in fluent Russian and we're all set.

    He looked good last night. Really good. I liked Miller quite a lot by the way but if you look at the part of the deal as a 1 for 1 he did a lot last night to make me think that maybe we did okay here.

    i said it the day of the trade, vlady is the better hockey player. jtm has tools but the noggin is foggy.

    sure he played with some stud players in tampa, but his overall skill set it better. he's very solid defensively too. his strength (smarts) is jtm's weakness.

    and his shot is very dangerous and that will become apparent the more we see him.

    this 1 for 1 deal favors us.

    Real good game last night. Obviously not expecting 2 points a night but if he can hustle like that and play smart like that he'll be a valuable piece for us and a guy worth holding onto.

    He's like a slower Grabner with hands.

    Let's not forget that this kid was a first round pick.

    Not that being a first rounder is a ticket for success, but it usually shows there was/is at least something there that was seen as being NHL-quality.

    Namestnikov is better imo. Spooner lacks scoring ability, but Namestnikov seems to be a solid finisher. Both can skate, but I think Vlad shows a bit more in the speed regard, and he probably has a better defensive game, since Spooner's is just pretty meh.

    I liked the interview before the game. IMO he has a pretty good reason to be down in the dumps--being part of a winning organization that has a great shot at winning the cup this year. But not at all--he seemed pretty fine joining our dumpster fire of a team (at the moment) here. I thought that was impressive. Good attitudes can go a long way.

    And way better vision. Way, way better playmaking in general over Grabner, who really could not make a pass for his life.

    Really liked seeing the defensive game from him last night. Made multiple solid plays. Which we haven't seen from many of our players all year. Like what he brought to the rink hopefully it's not just a showing to a new team. Hope he keeps up his good attitude and good play. It will be infectious to almost everyone else.

    Good call, I thought the same thing. Didn't seem down at all, seems genuinely excited and ready to be a part of this. I really appreciate that, and I think the locker room really, really needs that right now – especially the few guys who were here for the peak of the recent years' teams.
