Which is why the Rangers need to get a goalie they feel comfortable with as a backup. CJ should be playing in the AHL.

One thing I find very interesting about Grachev is how his Goals/Assists ratio is very very close. With a player that has a power forward type of style, it's more typical to see a higher discrepancy. I think his skill set is rare to see for someone his size and once he fine tunes his style of play, he's going to end up being a multi-dimensional player.

Anisimov wasn't as streaky as Grachev's been in his rookie year. He rarely went more than 3-4 games without a point. Grachev's points have come more in bunches, with long empty stretches in between.

Anisimov had some consistency issues, but it was more a shift-to-shift thing, whereas for Grachev it's been game-to-game.

One area Anisimov's game that really suffered in his first year was battling along the boards. He just didn't have the strength or the mentality required. That's been a strength for Grachev since the start of the season.

Anisimov also had the responsibilities of a center to deal with his rookie year -- Grachev doesn't (despite the fact that everyone from Hockey's Future to The Hockey News keeps insisting he's a center when they write about him.) And Anisimov knew next to no English when he came over, and was adapting to a completely different culture. Grachev's English is fantastic, and he's had a year to adapt to North American culture, though this is his first experience living on his own -- Anisimov had his parents with him his whole first season.

Personally, because he's a center and had the language and cultural adjustments to make, I'd give Anisimov a slight edge in his rookie season over Grachev. But the season's only half over.

Thanks for the input folks! And here's hoping Grachev starts lighting it up in the 2nd half!

Go Pack!

wonder if the Flyers will release or deal Boucher? That way Johnson could head down, I can see Vally going to Edmonton at some pt

I was surprised. Never really thought of him as fast. He credited Tort's training camp with helping him win lol.

I still won't believe for a minute his point production is a product of him trying hard or giving a damn.

This AHL all-star game is a blast. Better than any NHL version I have seen.

I'm actually pretty comfortable with CJ as our backup. He's a much better goaltender vally or zaba.. which is why they're in the AHL and CJ's on the roster.

Hopefully he gets a few games in the AHL in between NHL games to keep him fresh and on his toes.

The needs of the NHL team will always come ahead of the AHL team... And it's inevitable that the best players on the team will be called away.

Vally's stuck in the AHL for at least the rest of this season. He sucks, he can't even get a respectable GAA/sv% in the AHL, there's no way he's coming back to the rangers' roster. And if he did get into good enough shape to make it back to the roster, he wouldn't make it thru re-entry waivers. So he's done.

I didn't mean to imply that they shouldn't feel comfortable with him in New York. I just think he should get the experience of playing as often as he would in Hartford. It's better for his growth.

Sanguinetti is 10th in AHL defenseman scoring. A whopping 4 points behind the leader.

I could care less if he had a Kasparaitis-esque shot, he still manages to put up points at every level he's ever played.

He's an NHL talent, and there's no way the Rangers should give up on him at 21 years old.

I hope they don't give up on him. He's been getting better and better every year.
