I watched this last night on MSG too. I think it was one of the first things I have seen from MSG on the whole offseason. I mean, personally i think they just really drop the ball on the off-season. The team was very active in the offseason, but yet MSG did a terrible job covering the new additions etc. I mean, I have watched the Islanders season preview or whatever like three times already. And that was on MSG????? How the hell does the Islanders get a preview, and the Rangers get one little piece on Naslund? Pretty sad!

We're spoiled. Besides the Leafs, MSG is unrivaled in local hockey TV coverage. But what is there to really cover in the offseason besides replaying old stuff?

All of the new guys will be introduced during training camp and interviewed a whole bunch when the season starts, don't worry.

I don't like that they've completely ignored Zherdev, despite him being one of the most exciting young forward acquisitions we've made in a while.

There also hasn't even been as much as one Redden interview ever since he was signed a while ago.

Oh well, less hype is often good

I don't think they should hype up Zherdev with a bunch of interviews and all, and I don't think we should expect him to do a bunch of them.

The guy is notoriously camera shy. Let's just let him be. If he wants to do an interview, he'll do one, and in the meantime let's just let him play hockey.

At any rate, the season needs to start soon...

I would be thrilled if he can replace Marty Straka. And I think he can.

That has been my thinking all along. I'm not sure why anyone would think otherwise? Two light, speedy, veteran, complimentary top six wingers..

We don't need players to specifically replace others, we just need them to work together as a whole.

Does Renney ever say the wrong thing? He might be 100% wrong, but he's at least comes across as confident in what the Rangers have done.

There is only one Jagr. But his role is to help fill the hole left by JJ.

Change is change. I'm excited to see what they look like once they get some games behind them.

Agreed. I don't think there's a better spoken coach in the East. Renney is not one to mince words.

Sure he's well-spoken, but its more than that. He says the right things. He exudes confidence.

I definately have no problem with the network during the season...But I just think they could have done at least...at least a draft preview, and an off-season gameplan as well.

Not to hijack this thread, but in general I think the NHL as a whole, not just MSG could do a much better job. I mean, they have the NHL network just sitting there. So while I thought they did a good job covering the draft on VS, and the NHL Network, there was so much more they could have done. There are what 30 teams in the NHL? How about an hour dedicated to each team? You have all summer long to do it. How hard could it be to get an analyst to go over each teams off-season gameplan. What they lacked the season before, how they addressed it in the offseason. Who are the new faces, who left VIA free agency/trade etc. Instead, the network just airs classic series, and playoff games from the past few seasons. How about a special for each of the reciepients of each trophy given out at the end of the season. The Hart, The Vezina, Etc. Or a show dedicated to the Wings?

24 hours of hockey all day long, and they are pretty much dropping the ball with it. There is so much they can do with their programming that would help promote the game in the offseason, but I guess they are content with watching Lenny McDonald stache on a nightly basis!

Naslund isn't a complimentary player.

if Naslund is only as good as Straka was this past season, I'll be very disappointed.

Nedved being in camp so weird. I can't believe it was 13 years ago he joined the Rangers. I was 5 years old and I still remember it clearly when the Rangers got him. I tried to shoot my wrist shot like him, because I remember Sam Rosen saying "the Nedved Wrist Shot".
One time my family went to watch the Rangers practice at Rye and after we were waiting for autographs and my little brother ran in front of Nedved's car and he slammed on the brakes then had a few laughs and sign an autograph for us. It will be pretty funny to me if he makes the team.

Very well spoken I really like listening to him talk about the Rangers he is confident and business like. On the other hand though he can speak for 20 minutes and give you zero answers which is sometimes frustrating.

That is very true. I have been way to critical of Renney in the past but I am starting to realize he is the right man for the job. He has done a tremendous job for what he has had to work with.

For a while i thought he was a major ********* who got handed the job because he sucked. But the last few years hes gotten much better and has done a good job.

He still rubs me the wrong way though, especially when he tries to smooze on air.

+1

Like Näslund isn't bad really in any aspect. He is ok defensivly, he is ok in most aspect; but he is not a player who takes over a game and scores the big goal. He is not a player who dominates and needs a ton of chances to score.

Näslund got a great nose for the net, a fast shot and he got it in him go make a top notch top end play. His goals will be equally spread over the 60 minutes that make a hockey game.

25-30 goals is the level he should reach. Then if he gets hot who knows -- but his play will kind of be the same. The big diffrence will be if the puck goes in or not really. Very unlike a Jagr who could take over a game completely.

I wish that interview was twice as long. There is not a more well spoken and intelligent coach in the league. He is confident, but not only that, he can carry a converstion... he doesn't lie to the media (i.e. 'We won't miss Jagr') he straight up tells them that Jagr is a stellar player and we'll miss him, but we need to spread out the offense.

All the 'fire Renney' goofballs need to watch an interview with the guy and decide who would be a better coach.

There isn't one.
