- Grant and Segal are very solid AHLers if they can play in their natural roles in the bottom-6.


Honestly, if we had one more top-6 forward (JAM?), the team would've been good offensively. The biggest problem is our defense. Other than Gilroy, the rest of them downright suck.
How do you figure Haley and Kolarik are going to see NHL time? Barring injuries, there's absolutely no room for them on the Rangers.

And wait, did you just say Gilroy is one of the few players that doesn't suck? I haven't watched the Whale in a while, but the 4-5 games I did catch, Gilroy was the glaring problem on defense, add to that his team-leading -7 (tied with Vernace), I'm having a tough time believing he's gotten any better.
