I'd love them to continue the offensive burst of the Avs game, but with new players to bed in i'm not expecting it. So, just win, please.

I'm thoroughly excited. I can't wait to see Antro, Avery, and Morris play. Nik is going to look slick in Blue!

Call me crazy, and many of you will, but I have a gut feeling. I have a feeling that this team is about to step out and show us all something special. Maybe its that I want to succeed so much, but I just have a gut feeling that were about to get on a big run.

I've felt that feeling ever since we got rid of Renney and hired Torts. Now I really have that feeling since we got Antro, Avery, and Morris. This team could be a player in the PO's, especially if Lundy turns into October form.

Leafs fan here -- I come in peace!


Anyways, enjoy Antropov guys.
He's a class act and I think you guys will love his style. Remember his hat-trick against you guys last year!

He's a big guy, but he doesn't play like one. However, he's not soft like people say. The reason why he's played so well in the past 2 and half years is because he's finally learned how to play like a big man. Trust me, when you see him in the corner with the puck and he fends of 2 defenders and scores (which I've seen him do alot) you'll understand why Leafs fans finally grew to love him.

With that, take it easy on him tonight, he may be a little emotional.

eh, i'm trying to remain level-headed for several reasons.

for one, we're still in the honeymoon phase with tortorella. we're all excited because renney's system deprived us of an offensive game--but we're also going to be the ones to curse tortorella when one of the d-man are caught deep and we lose the game.

secondly, who knows if we can even score more than two or three goals? we scored six goals last game against the avalanche! granted the team has to still learn the new system, but maybe the offensive talent wasn't there in the first place.

antropov, morris, and avery are great--but for a team that has had trouble 'meshing offensively,' do you expect the team to click in the last 18-games and into the playoffs? that's assuming we make the playoffs.

a lot of question marks. before we praise (and eventually rip) the rangers, i would just watch them for a few more games.

Works all fine and dandy on my end with IE7.

Have you tried updating your Flash player or tried using another Web Browser?

I keep saying the same thing over and over, we will see how they are against the Isles, if they have a good strong game with a big win over em i'll be looking forward to the Bruins on Sunday, if it's not a good game I won't be looking forward to the Rangers playing the Bruins

not just you...I've been having issues too...it's annoying...it wouldn't happen if the league didn't have control of the website and MSG still had control over it

does anyone know who was skating with who at this morning's skate?

i'm done rooting against the rangers, i think sather did all he could yesterday and this team looks pretty deep on paper. if we can get the 4-6 seed, we could win a round.

are you guys nervous about which Avery is going to show up tonight and if he can keep his emotions in check?

if he is level headed then The Rangers are going to be one scary team. In the last couple of weeks it seemed they were missing that spark. If Avery can keep his head this is going to be real good for you guys.

here is to a good game tonight with I am sure some added excitement!!

The lines havent been announced yet. I get the feeling Antropov will be at center just because he said Slats called him immediately and asked if he would be more comfortable at Center or Left Wing. Most of his success has been at center so im expecting him to play there. Maybe that means Drury moves to wing again.

Story hasnt changed. Rangers simply just need to net more goals and they will be fine.

Its a very good team. Lots of talent. They need to score. Feel what its like to score again and believe. Feel the win and go on a run.
