    Yes, the team as a whole is playing much better now and the stats also show that. First half of the season, they played terrible, now the structure is much better. Shestyerkin has these stats because the team has done their part, much more so than when Hank and Georgiev tried to hold the fort. The allowed high quality chances are down.

    Chytil has to be healthy. He’s been one of our better players and this team has no depth to lose anyone.

    you can’t trade anyone now.... Even a guy like Fast. Basically have to treat him like a self rental.

    Now that’s how a team plays who wants to stay together! Great win by the Rangers. For all those who were saying this team did not have the talent to make the playoffs your arguement is going right out the window!

    This is why you need a cold blooded GM like Gorton at the helm. Can’t have thoughts like this in the aftermath of a big win messing with the methodical long term plan he’s been so successfully following for 2 1/2 seasons.

    Stay the course re: roster decisions. And if the remaining team post the TDL goes on to make noise in the playoffs, great. But this should be the last TDL of building/accumulating; don’t mess up the next ~7 years because of a good 2-month run.

    Not sure where you saw that, but that's not true at all.

    According to most of the playoff chance simulators online we're at around 23% right now.

    Edit: I see you got that number from MoneyPuck. I'm not sure why their numbers are so different than other prediction sites.

    Hate to sound skanky, but she was my 1st choice, over Brady's and Ryan's Mom. And ya' gotta believe "Anthony's" Mom would be feisty, don't ya' think? = fun.

    I mean, should we be talking like this? I was taught to respect women and my elders. Oh wait......I am an elder, so that leaves women. Oh well, 1 out of 2 ain't bad.
    Surely the Mom's KNEW that this would happen. They are becoming famous, just like their son's. All that hard work raising them, is finally paying off and they're getting their 15 minutes of fame.

    You aren't messing up the next 7 years if you don't get a 2nd rounder for Fast. But losing Fast this season really hurts chances of making a serious run because we have no depth.

    I was a big time pro trade Kreider person but it looks like that's not happening and the team is playing too damn well. And with this goalie, it's hard not to imagine that we'd be tough to beat for anyone.

    Agreed. I'm already anticipating the worst case scenario for this team - we don't trade anyone at the deadline, miss the playoffs anyway, and both Kreider and Fast walk on July 1. Would be piss poor asset management if that occurred.

    Yeah, me too.

    If we do end up making the playoffs obviously I’m all aboard and I hope they win the Cup.

    But there is nothing that would make me believe they can do that this year and nothing that would convince me that their best course long term isn’t getting into the top 10 of this draft.

    But that’s looking less and less likely.

    Not happening with Kreider. There's a chance with Fast.

    What happened to Chytil? I noticed he wasn’t on the bench in the third period

    That’s cause Raleigh/NC has a ton of transplants from the northeast. I’m one of them.

    Ugh. Everyone is gonna be thinking twice about this playoff push when we miss it by 4 points and are picking 13th.

    I have been a fan since 1970's....and I like this team when they are ON and feisty and playing like they have been . I have always thought we could do some damage as well if we got in . Good special teams and a hot goalie and some guys that can go to the dirty areas can get much done in a short while . We have some of those guys now and plug in a couple of added vets on the cheap for a 2nd-3rd round picks ....never know what can happen.....LA was an 8th place team and won the Cup !!!

    Gorton won’t let that happen. If he doesn’t think he can sign Kreider he will trade him regardless of the playoff push.

    I was at the game, sitting at the end the Rangers defended twice. Trouba was god awful. Embarrassingly bad. The fact that he has that kind of performance in his game in a big spot is frightening given his contract. What was Gorton thinking?
    Other than tripping on his ass in the first period (the ice at PNC is really bad), Skjei had a good game. Frankly, give me Skjei and his contract over Trouba and his all day.
    Adam Fox is a beast! There is a lot of talk about Quinn Hughes and some of these other young D, but Fox is solid at both ends of the ice and is an elite thinker/passer. I don't think I swap him for any of them with maybe one or two exceptions.
    Right now, the Rangers are playing really good hockey. Not too many defensive mistakes and lots of offensive talent. Good times ahead for Ranger fans.

    Shesty made some great saves on high quality chances last night and has done so consistently. On top of that, his rebound control is great, eliminating additional high quality chances. Oh, and he can handle the puck. This kid has the chance to win Vezina trophies in his future.

    The draft is a crapshoot.

    Here's a news flash, we are losing a 7 game series to the bruins the first round anyway, Kreider on one side or the other won't change that. Continue building the team, I can guarantee Kreider will never be this good again, sell high.

    If they don't trade Kreider it will be the domino that spoiled the rebuild. We will pay through the nose for this.

    Unless this expression transforms into a happy Buch, no. (It was a face of the team when they struggled).

    I don't have one with him, other than him retreating back to Russia. I know he's still a kid, so definitely give him a pass on that one.
    My point is that drafting a kid this year will likely result in a player who won't see the NHL for 3-4 years. We wont draft in the top 3 or so, so getting an immediate impact player is unlikely. Gorton's job is to walk the line of putting the best possible team on the ice now, while not doing anything stupid to jeopardize the near future.

    If he can get a really good return on Kreider, I'm fine with moving him. If the return is meh, and Kreids if willing to take a hometown discount on $ and term, I think its a good idea to resign him.
