Bruno make s good point. I am guilty of having higher expectations than are truly warranted from this guy. It's just that he "looks" like he could be doing a lot more.

We really need to come home with these 2 point tonight. I may even stay up and watch this one.

'MALIK GETS DEFENSIVE'

Quote:

That Edmonton-born Jason Strudwick would return to the lineup tonight seemed likely.

But Marek Malik either hasn’t boned up on the birthplaces of his teammates or hasn’t yet completely understood how far he has fallen on the Rangers’ depth chart. Because, upon being informed that he would be the defenseman sitting out tonight to make room for Strudwick, Malik reacted angrily.

He put on his overcoat and stormed out of the Rangers’ lockerroom and into the Edmonton night. Where he was going was unclear - perhaps to Bistro Praha, the terrific Czech restaurant downtown where Jaromir Jagr and his countrymen went for dinner last night.

As for which forward is coming out to make room for Brendan Shanahan, Rangers coach Tom Renney is keeping that to himself until the latest possible moment. He planned to skate all 13 forwards in the warm-up.

And when I asked him after the morning skate whether Marcel Hossa would be coming out, Renney said: “No. I’m going to be making a gametime decision about what’s happening with our roster. That’s about all I can give you right now. Everybody’s healthy.”

Maybe this means even more so a deadline trade involving Malik or even before that.

Regardless, lineup looks good tonight, we're facing a worse team, one that's really struggled as of late too, when we're coming off two frustrating losses, with a pissed Henrik Lundqvist, and fire power that is ready to blow after getting their ***** handed to them by Lundqvist after being shutout.

I see people still bagging on the 4th line wingers no matter that its the only line that has been giving it's all and doing their job every night..Hell, people even suggesting throwing in wingers from Harford who aren't even average at the AHL level yet....The guys that need to be replaced are Callahan and Prucha...if they don't score they are wortheless..And Cally has been worthles for a longggg time..Ditto for Hossa recently...All that being said, tonight would be a nice night for all lines to score against a weak Edmonton team because we need all four lines working

Agreed but with me It's more so the fact that Orr doesn't deserve to be out there every night. I am really impressed with him, his game was taken to another level and he's a lot smart now, Hollweg, well, if he keeps delivering bone crunching hits than sure he can stay in, I don't see the reasoning behind playing AHL players on our fourth line that have never skated in an NHL game, it's ludicrous, however, Hossa belongs on the fourth line, it's where he would play best, and he should be switched with Holly and Orr each night.

It's all the fans fault. Can't anybody see that Malik has been a solid shutdown D-man, while Girardi has not been called on the carpet, and Staal is just so over-hyped. Because, afterall, the coaching staff is easily swayed by such sentiment.

That's the last straw with me for Malik.

I dont want to see him in a Rangers uniform. He clearly is not a team player, and when he steps foot on the ice, he just doesn't work hard enough.

Time to give the 8 to someone else.

Yeah I mean, I'm no Malik fan but I'm not a person who feels that everything wrong with the team is his fault either. However, his recent lazy play and this crap tonight is the limit for me.

If you are making mistakes on the ice, fine..it happens, but to get like that because he's not in the lineup (and deservedly so) is pretty bad.

Hardcore points (or idiot points) to me. Starting to get a cold, (my throat and sinus feels like...) I went to bed at 00.30 and put my winamp alarm @ 04.00. I can sleep when I die. Never done this before, so of course we'll win tonight.

Can't complain on that one. Malik and Mara have been bad and Callahan as effective as a wounded rabbit on crutches. Even so, more Rangers have deserved a healthy scratch recently.

It's just his lack of a desire to be a team player.

Sean Avery, when he was hurt, was cheering, yelling, and otherwise carrying on in the press box. I don't get the sense Malik is doing that. And that's what I have a problem with.

Here we go!!

LETS GO RANGERS

so Hossa takes 2 dumb offensive zone penalties and continues to play at least Callahan did not do that. At least Callahan plays physical if not scoring. Im glad Struds is in over Malik.
