    Is this threadworthy? Idk, I thought it was one of the better ones thus far. He's pretty polarizing amongst Ranger fans and he has bad advanced stats but he wows you with plays every now and then. This is his magnup opus so far.

    Turned out to be the GWG.

    If #28 just comes across and hits him, but nope, he knows you can't really do that anymore so.....

    Great rush though by Pionk.

    A lot of confidence in his game. Bright spot on our shaky d-core.

    Need to hear the audio and "*******" chants. It was poetic.

    This kid is so talented but he gives me polio in the defensive zone. I hope we can coach him up.

    I remember a Ranger defenseman with similar skill set and body type who had similar struggles at his age, but showed the same offensive flashes. And he eventually turned out to be pretty good. We can only hope.

    If Reilly comes across he would hit him before Pionk got to the net. Admirable effort on the sort of poke check attempt. ;)

    Fingers crossed.

    I don't wanna give up on Pionk because he can do things like this.

    Good on SportsNet for including the Spin-O-Rama in the live speed clip unlike NHL.com/MSG

    So this is what we want. A guy skating untouched end to end like its a pickup game? Like is that it? Take hitting away? Nobody even tried to bump him to slow him down lol. Soft fans are super duper impressed and normal hockey fans think what soft defense. You guys suck.

    It was an impressive play and Montreal played it pathetically soft. Plenty of great end to end rushes have happened all throughout the history of the game, it's not some new phenomenon. Teams played joke defense for literally decades.

    Nobody forced MTL to play that like white bread.

    At this point, the NHL ISSS forcing it. Did you see the "penalty" on Vesey??? Awful. Every game I watch it seems this kind of stuff happens. Nobody wants to touch anybody anymore. Sticks, body checks, nothing. The game is full of soft players and phantom calls. They're all afraid of letting their team down and then a suspension for social media to get ahold of so their kids can get berated in school. It's sad.
