That would be the same coach who was moronic enough to put a plug in the top 6? Oh, wait, he's our hottest goal-scorer.
I believe that's the same coach that everyone here said will stifle the growth of the young players, but now everyone is saying all the youngsters are improving. How can that be?
The conventional wisdom is the big loser here in Ranger board land.
I'd rather keep him more than a goodly amount of current Rangers, at that contract.
Don't know how many of you remember, but back in the 70s, the Rangers would bring up someone near the end of the season to make that playoff run. Bobby Sheehan had a memorable run in 1979. Kravtsov comes to mind as an analogy...
Georgiev HM. I see what you did.
If we’re talking lines, I’m putting Kreider on the third line. He’s sleepwalking at this point.
I like that we are at most 2/3 of the where I think we'll be in a year or two and already hanging in there and in many cases beating the top teams in the league. Management REALLY has to screw up for this team to not be a contender for the next 5-7 years.
Can't do that, or should I say "shouldn't" do that. Don't wanna break up that kid line. They're building nice chemistry and are relying on one another, raising their level of play. OMG, they're going to be possession freaks!
Of course, some day they will be, but man.....I would leave them be.
They didn't have to score and you could still see how they were playing. But, when they did.....that just compounded their excitement and were imposing their youth and will to score. I was flabbergasted and excited to no end, seeing what they are capable of as a group.
Gah I missed the game.
Sounds like they were excellent.
Anyone have a clip of this? It wasn't in the highlights and I missed the game.
Is there any universe in where we keep him to a team friendly contract?
Yeah man, anyone with even a third eye blind could see it. Long ways to go but yeah, you're spot on. After last night, Laf may have finally joined.....1st Chytil then Kaapo into feeling like they belong. As a line....well, that certainly seems to be materializing.
There's no good reason why Quinn would separate them now. They've been more than responsible and getting some good minutes when the game is on the line.
There’s actually might be some truth to this. Earlier in the season Kakko often overextended his shifts to get caught defending with no skating legs.
Kakko / Buchnevich spot? Nah. I’d put him in a bumper spot, the same he spent majority of his time this season.
I voted for him.
Man... if only they traded Kreider for a center last year at the deadline instead of signing him.
He was good.
Go back even further he was almost dealt to Colorado for the pick they selected newhook with
Well he is already signed at league minimum for next year. If he keeps up his production through next season I don't see any chance he doesn't look to cash in as much as possible. Going to be his one chance at a big payday most likely.
Prior to this past KHL season he was scoring almost all his goals from the right circle, pretty sure I recall him literally scoring like 6 straight goals to start the year all from that spot. I’d rather mold him into that than the bumper role as a lot of players can do that bumper role, not many can score like that from the top of the circle. Kravtsov has a great shot!
Next year's full training camp might be the time to try thing. For now leave the kid alone where he's comfortable as he finds his way.
Always good to beat those greasy Islander fu*ks!
