    Just a reminder that the Rangers have a dominant 1C.

    Really thought he was gonna get the hatty yesterday but Gibson made a really nice save late in the game. He's showing that last season wasn't a fluke

    I almost feel like his numbers don't tell the full story. He looks like a better player than his point per game would suggest.

    Just by the eye test not looking at stats Mika looks like the best player we have. I feel like Panarin's game is more subtle and he's more efficient and smarter, so he's more effective and the better player, however.

    Panarin is definitely the superior offensive talent. He’s a genuine superstar elite producer. Mika is obviously a 1C. Maybe not the top tier, but clearly a first line center and the nice thing is that he looks to continue to be trending up in production but he’s also an all around player. He’s good on the draw, PKs, hits and puts up first line production. Hard to really compare a winger to a center and Panarin isn’t a slouch in terms of back checking and effort, but as a very productive all around top line center, Z is every bit as valuable.

    Zibanejad is just a horse, he’s all over the ice. Breaks up so many plays defensively and a really good player off the puck, a lot better then Panarin. One of the biggest threats in the league short handed too.

    We’re lucky to have both but I think I’d keep Mika if you put gun to my head and said pick one.

    Love Mika and love Panarin, I’m just waiting for the day we finally have a truly home grown superstar that’s not Hank. Who was the last one besides him, Leetch?

    Love Mika. But goodness, I could do without his heavy breathing in during his interviews. Understand this seems to be a cultural Scandinavian trait. Makes me anxious as hell watching his postgame!

    It's a good thing we didn't trade him because of his hair color like some people were upset about.

    Also good we didn't pass on Chytil because some people didn't like his pants.

    The players are always on edge and anxious that Giannone is going to ask some unnecessarily verbose & 'cerebal' question about the game...

    Entirely different conversation, but agree Giannone is a terrible fit for anything related to our NYR broadcast.

    Mika has zero personality and gives horrible interviews idk why everyone is so adamant about giving him the C. Great player don’t get me wrong but he doesn’t strike me as Captain material .

    I think Fast would be a better captain than Zibanejad

    Or he just isn't as outspoken as others. Not everything is the result of a concussion

    Come on, AK. Really? You could not pick up on the tongue n cheek? I was one of the more outspoken people that he did NOT have a concussion.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but I have a hard time telling you and RGY, and others, apart. Lack of an avatar contributes to that haha
