Some good info in the original thread, so I've merged them. I can add Dubi's links to Osminator's original post if that makes the thread more user friendly.

Brandon Dubinsky - 870 faceoffs - 53.6%
Scott Gomez - 1312 faceoffs - 52.4%
Chris Drury - 1183 faceoffs - 51.0%
Blair Betts - 884 faceoffs - 49.3%

Of course percentage also only says so much. Depends who you go against & the situation as well.

Betts took the most faceoffs shorthanded in which he was 149 for 345 which is 43.2%. Dubinsky only took 41 faceoffs on the PK although he did manage 60.1%.

Even Strength
Betts - 529 faceoffs - 53.3%
Dubinsky - 687 faceoffs - 52.5%
Drury - 874 faceoffs - 52.2%
Gomez - 1004 faceoffs - 51.6%

A taste of what's to come in camp:

Quote:
Although deeply tanned from the Tampa summer sun, 34-year-old Vinny Prospal turned a little pale earlier today when asked about the looming weeks of pressure under his former head coach, John Tortorella.
After all, the guyís a survivor of Camp Torts, which opens with testing and a three-mile run late Friday afternoon and goes brutally uphill from there..
Prospal said that Tampa personnel recently sent north ďthe rope that you put between the nets for testing---for the laps---so I donít think heís gonna change one bit. The first three days are the worst, itís by far the worst training camp Iíve ever experienced. This is my 17th year overseas and Iíve never experienced anything like that..Ē
Tortorella, said Prospal, who signed a one-year deal for $1.1 million, ďputs a lot of emphasis on conditioning; he thinks thatís what wins games later on in the year. Thatís what he believes in. I just donít look forward to these two weeks. Just the thought of doing it makes me worried.Ē

Can't say I'm disappointed... I didn't think McLaren had anything left in the tank.

Valentenko and Kveton are probably not coming anywayway. All the rest of the above are signed except for Gaulton and maybe or maybe not Doyle.
No, it's not when I was looking at it, it said that the missing people like you mentioned will be added on after the tournament, because it scared me to not to see Grachev's name

Torts: Lundqvist will play less than 70 games; expect 52 players in camp, roster released later.
Considering lundqvist has averaged 70 games the past 3 season..looks like he's going to average a couple games less.

I'd be fine with 65 for Lundqvist, spaced out over the season better. It always seemed like Renney would ride him for as long as possible at the start of the season, and then only rest him when Lundqvist started faltering.

Maybe if he gets more regularly scheduled rest, he won't crash so hard

this is kind of awesome though

Torts received some summer media training from Cablevision, which owns the Rangers and Newsday, but still dropped some unintended f-bombs (while laughing) during an hour-long session with a handful of writers this morning. Can't teach old dogs....

Torts said that Gaborik and a few other players will not make the 3-mile runs to limit the chances of incurring injuries, in Gabby's case, groin/hip surgery. He said like the Yankees are doing with ARod, the Rangers staff will keep in touch with his surgeon throughout the season. "We have to manage that situation," Torts said, indicating that Gaborik would likely be held out of some practices."The games are what's important," he said.

No... especially since theyve said hes got a "clean bill of health"

Guess they are just looking after their investment... and a very large one at that.

Id argue its exactly what you want to hear. Why take any chance with a franchise superstar player we just gave a 5 year contract? There is no need to even risk it at all with non-hockey activities.

Yeah it sounds to me like it's not that he still has an injury and they're trying to rest it, but just that they figured they might as well take precautions if it reduces the risk of future injuries.

Agreed. It's kind of similar to what the Yankees did with A-Rod when he came back from the same surgery: rest him every few days or play him at DH.

Hockey is far more physical than baseball, so if they want Gabby to sit out on some practices, that's fine with me. Better to be safe than sorry.

This is one of the risks that the Rangers incurred by acquiring a player with an injury history who has recently undergone hip surgery. They shouldn't require Gaborik to engage in any unnecessary activities to that might aggravate his hip.

They're just using the kid gloves when handling him. Nothing alarming, IMO.

I've just looked at the pre-season schedule... a little disappointed at the lack of variety... 2x Bruins, 2x Capitals, 2x Red Wings and Devils at the Rock... why no Islanders? no Flyers?... Oh well, Rangers hockey is Rangers hockey, no matter against who...

Not surprised there's no pre-season Islanders game... those were downright nasty the last few years.

Wouldn't want Valiquette or Zaba to have to throw down with whichever of the Islanders' franken-goalie would be playing.
