    JT looked composed and it showed he wanted to make the team. Kreider seems to play with a mean streak when he gets P.O.'d, I like it.

    Things I saw:

    Allen is a seriously legitimate prospect who I would say should make the team if we needed a d-man.

    Kreider finally played assertive hockey and looked good doing it.

    Fast looked very good.

    Miller looked very good.

    Hrivik looked very good.

    I liked what I saw from the youngins, Asham, and Hank in the 3rd period. What I didn't like, basically everything else.

    Agreed on your last line. It's like Hank was mostly asleep the first two periods and then woke up and realized there was a game going on.

    I'm not worried about Hank, though.

    i thought the young guys looked the best. I like Lindberg and fast but they probably need some more seasoning. Miller and Kreider looked the best and if they both are here they should play together since they seem to ahve good chemistry

    he looks like he did last year nothign has really changed. I mean maybe i misse dit but did he make one clean pass during the whole preseason. Maybe he has reached his limit, i knew giving him a 9 year deal was crazy

    Richards made a few good plays..hes an assist guy..when his linemates dont finish, he wont get points.


    Our team looks totally discombobulated...they don't know where to go the vast majority of the time. they look like a team that needs some serious coaching. to me it seems as if they are caught in between systems.

    watching this preseason has made me realize one thing... if you want a radical transition from one type of system to another, you better be willing to deal with that transition time, because a team playing in between systems...pretty much looks like we have this entire preseason.....effing terrible, and yet somehow still better than the Flyers.

    The young guys all played pretty well but apart from Miller I think they're all heading for Hartford--that includes Kreider. If I were to guess Mashinter stays because the Rangers want him around for size and toughness and he'd have to pass through waivers. Rangers are going to do what they've done in the past--make choices dependent on protecting vets who would have to pass through waivers. The exception IMO will be Powe who they'll try to move.

    I like a lot of these guys though--Kreider, Miller, Fast, Hrivik, Lindberg, Allen, McIlrath and even Kristo, Yogan, Haley, Talbot and Mashinter. They all offer something and some of them are very, very close.

    Guys I think we need to dump asap--Richards, Pyatt, Powe, Bickel, Bourque, Wilson, Johnson and maybe Jean.

    Well, we'll always have Philadelphia...

    Liked what I saw from the young forwards. The defensemen were awful tonight although DZ started playing better as the night wore on. Lundqvist started looking like himself in the final seconds of the 2nd period when he stopped that breakaway and was solid in the 3rd.

    Not sure what Nash's obsession is with attempting to deke around defenders and then making a bad pass that results in a turnover. He is our best goalscorer and will need to shoot the puck a lot more. I would rather he shoot the puck and use the defensemen as a screen as opposed to trying to skate around them.

    Mashinter has been, consistently, one of our worst people on the ice everytime he plays.

    I'm including both teams, the refs, and the people that clean up the ice during the commercials.

    im not sure what people see in this guy...he sucks.

    Meh, not really worried. a LOT of talent in this line up. Five days and a bunch of work to do.
     
  24. Some Rangers fans on here will never get over the Rangers toughness need....

    Mashinter is an AHL player at best. He is trash. You want to keep tough guys on the roster there are three legitimate options.

    Asham
    Dorsett
    Haley


    Other than that, no tough guy should be near the lineup unless we trade for a new one.

    It's not necessarily the results, just the culture that I can't stand anymore.

    No powerplay
    Disappointing stars
    Can't score more than once
    Can't finish chances
    Stupid penalties
    Get pushed around by big players

    These are the same problems for literally decades. We wait all summer and then 6 games of all that same stuff and it just makes you wanna give up.
