When he has confidence, yeah. But when he doesn't, then it'll just roll off his stick and he'll lose control before even getting a shot. I don't believe in keeping a guy just because of the shootout. EC certainly capable of bringing a lot more than that too, but it's about consistency. I hope he has a great year.

Staal. Is. AMAZING.

We should have won this game by at least 2 goals IMO. If not for spezza being loaded on super mario mushrooms tonight and half our Defenseman imitating wade redden on defense.

MDZ was BRUTAL, I felt like i was watching malik on the PP

and can someone please get eminger far FAR away from this team? Tell him to take white with him.

Stepan continues to impress and Prust was just unreal tonight, He made boogard score!....thats like Ovechkin not hitting the glass after a goal

EC needs to lighten up, He's our new naslund.
he needs to stop giving his "don't kick my dog" face expressions after scoring.

I wish Marc Staal would stop teasing me with these clutch game tying Brian Leetch moves already. I'll start to expect too much...

I want a Stepan jersey. Wonder what number he'll pick. Love this kid. Future captain? Maybe, but I still think Callahan will get it. I'd love to see Callahan with the C, Stepan and Gaborik with A's in a few years.

I'd be okay with Eminger as the 7th to start the season. I'd rather not have a youngster sit in the press box even if it was flat out alternating every other game with the #6. He looks unconfident and I felt bad that he had to endure an awful Trautwig interview and may not even stick with the team. I do like his positioning though, and I think if he gets a break and gets a little confidence boost, he could be a solid depth defenseman for us. There isn't much wrong with his game, but nothing is really better than average.

Callahan is going to have a huge year. Book it. He looks noticeably faster AND stronger... not to mention that he's been creating scoring chances for himself and his teammates out of plays that in the past, he would've just dumped the puck behind the net or chipped it into the zone. Callahan's offensive game has actually looked like more of what we expect from Dubinsky, and Dubinsky's offensive game has been rather lackluster. The chances are starting to come, but his timing is definitely not there yet.

And if he stays healthy, Avery is also going to have a big year.

And I expect Anisimov to make a strong case for first line center at some point this season. He's definitely got some chemistry with Frolov, imo. Also, like Callahan, he looks both stronger AND faster.

This team has a totally different feel to it so far. It even looks like they may have formed some kind of identity over the summer. There's just a swagger and overall attitude that seems vastly different from last year's team, even when they got on a roll at the end. I don't know what it is, but I hope it sticks.

Nice goal from Staal tonight. He needs to do that more often, once he gets moving at close to his top speed, he's pretty damn hard to knock off the puck.

Drury can play the wing. Seems Todd White's days are numbered.

Unfortunately, being a betting man I would book against it. Both Cally n Avery play too hard a game to remain healthy. I love them both and wish the best,.... just don't bet on them. They play a big mans game and they are not that big. And if they don't play hard, take it a little easier, they won't be effective, or help the team. They're kinda crash and burn players. These guys play with more bumps and bruises than you could imagine. This is why Avery is invisible some games (hurt) and in others dominating (healthy).

I agree with the swagger this team has now. You just knew when they fell behind 3-2, someone would step up with an amazing effort (Staal) to tie the game. They been doing it all pre-season. But then again, it's only pre-season. I feel this team might have came together during the stretch drive last year when they needed to win all their games to make the playoffs. And even though they misssed, I think they know they're a good team and could play with anybody. They came to camp with that attitude, that Swagger.

I just have to throw in my appreciation for Prust. He has been nothing short of great during his career here, given his responsibilities and expectations. He battles and his playmaking skill should be getting more praise. Having him on a 4th line almost automatically makes it an offensive threat.

I hope he remains a Ranger a long time.

Well, if Stepan didn't solidify a spot on this team, tonight,... I don't know what will.

I'll go one step further. He is our #1 center. Although Torts might not place him there. Seems EC only plays his best with Gabby,... where as Stepan, can play with anybody!

On Boogaard: He might have to call Easton and ask for a second stick for the season, he's on a hot streak

Boyle and Boogaard were the Rangers stars for this game? Should have been Prust and Stepan, or Prust and Staal.

Dude is a warrior with a ton of heart (and better skills than some give him credit for). If he were a homegrown guy, everyone would have a stiffy for him like they do for Cally.

I wouldn't go as far as to say we've played against mediocre goaltending completely- last game we were robbed of some very easy chances by Elliott standing on his head for a few seconds. Sure, a few goals were kinda soft, but not every goalie can be on their best every minute of the game. Hank's let in some softies, too.

That's being a bit harsh, Prust is a sexy 4th line guy he has been quiet this pre season but I think they said he was sick or something? Anyway he will get his love from the fans even if he isn't homegrown you're just taking a shot at Cally haha.

I get the sarcasm (haha), but I think some of you guys have taken it to the other end of the extreme. On all of the goals yesterday the player had beaten one of our defenders or was untouched. Also, all the goals were scored right in front of the net. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't be thrilled if that's the kind of defense these guys are going to play on a regular basis this season.

I consider soft goals shots from the points that aren't deflected, shots behind defenders, shots from odd angles and stuff like that. I thought he was hung out to dry a bit yesterday

Oh I wasn't talking all about this game (though one of the goals I think Hank definitely could've stopped), more the 2nd Devils game. Even then, you're right. Our defense has been ehh at best and pretty bad at worst. Then again, Hank should be used to that now and be prepared to stand on his head every second of every game .

Those goals by the Sens were NOT softies. The defense left Hank vulnerable by very weak positioning and soft play.
