i like the way this turned out

- when kovalchuk milks the offseason's limelight for the whole summer with nothing to show for it

- when MSG TV channel has vault showings and it turns out to be the nicks or some sport other than hockey but the other night they had some good rangers stuff on :0

- when they mess up something great. for instance that shelley prust and anisimov line, really cheap players who found chemistry and showed a lot of promise to continue their great play.

Sometimes, even with an open lane, a shot isn't the right move. A powerplay is about setup, usually. Not about peppering the net.

Roszival should shoot more.

...that most hockey nick-names are lame take offs on a players last name and that fans feel free to use them.

How don't you like hockey nicknames? Pretty much just add a 'y' or 'i' or 'ie' to the ending maybe an 's' or 'er', sometimes shorten it up a little. They're great. Come on!

#4 How on EVERY rush, our wingers skate in behind the net instead of stopping in front. They're all guilty of it. Sickens me.

#3 having to suffer with Butch Goring and Chico Resch on MSG Network.

#2 Sather and Dolan.

#1 REEDONCULOUS TICKET PRICES

Seriously.That was a magical year and I will never forget it, but enough already.
I feel the same way. I think MSG plays it up so much in hopes that we will forget about the mediocre way this franchise has performed since '94 (and for the 54 years leading up to then for that matter).

what grinds my gears ...

... that Hank obviously doesn't even stand up for himself. That after so many times he got run over, he still didn't manage to defend himself. He should watch some Ron Hextall ****. To see how it is done!

... that I can afford my dream lifestyle ... yet

... that ticket prices in NYC are obviously REDONCULUS

... the consequences of a dead cell-phone

and last but not least.

... That Dr. House may never throw me a bachelor pardy !

Is when we give up on players only to get other players with less value, chemistry, and not only that we pay the replacement more money.

i.e gone- Nylander in Gomez, Drury
Gone Straka in Naslund
gone Orr in Brasher
Gone Antropov/Zherdev in Kotalik and Higgins
Gone Korpi and Prucha in Lisin and whoever
Gone Mara in Redden
Gone Betts in Brian Boyle


The list goes on and on to be fair the only good moves this organizations has made in recent time was bringing in Prust and moving Kotalik and Higgins, but than again Jokinen almost cancelled out that benefit. Wait another one of these moves
Recently Gone Shelly in Boogard.
These are just some of the mind abusing moves that this organization makes year in year out with no explanation from the idiot behind them!

Mods that trample on my rights of religious freedom and speech really grind my gears.
