And honestly, it's not that hard to spell.
but but but...it was a PLAYOFF goal. Which means it was clutch, and anybody who didn't score in the playoffs is a choker who doesn't try or want it hard enough.

It's funnier because I do have a personal blog.

But my name has been plastered on here nearly 14000 times. The Devils board already butchers it daily.

Its the 82 games it takes to get there that I have a beef with.
I don't understand whats so hard about trying to utilize him when he WAS playing well. Two games in a row I saw Wolski creating and getting opportunities, yet Torts refused to play him in key offensive positions, opting for Gaborik yet again when he was doing zilch with the mediocre creativity he was playing with.

I don't want Wolski, but next season I have a feeling we're gonna end up with another similar player and we're back to square one.

Well I guess it's better than the people who come here and treat the board like an outlet for when they are PMSing.

For those that want Wolski to return, don't worry, we already have a much cheaper version of him on the team and he's under contract for next year.

His name is Erik Christensen.

They're buying out the wrong guy.

Buy out Drury. Sign Richards. Keep Wolski for another season.

Don't be afraid, you can address me personally

I'm not gonna be all flowers, hearts and canoes in here like most of you sproutlings, I go out and celebrate the NYR that way live, with people and booze

No offense ! <RD>

I make no bones about it, this place is my NYR stomping ground and they deserve every bit of it. I've seen posters on this board the last 10 years run the Rangers franchise better than the Sather regime.

Agreed. I'll also believe it when I see it. Rather give
Wolski a full yr in a Ranger uniform

I'll believe a buy out when I see it

I think a daycare full of slow children could run the Rangers better than Sather and Co, but he's getting paid to do it, and we're not, so I guess he's doing something right.

Surprised we can't trade Wolski to the Predators.

I'm sure a draft pick would do it and that team needs offense.

Just look at how Kostitsyn picked up his game after being traded. I'm sure Trotz can improve Wolski.

While not exact I could swear I read these posts last year in defense of not holding onto Pappy who had a great year for the Isles.

I like Leino a lot. I actually mentioned during the season that he should be one of the targets. Not sure anyone has the vision of a Leino on our team. If we don't look at trades and go strictly UFA....Richards, Leino(or jussi jokinen), and a Markov or Babchuk would be great.

Parenteau was "okay", wouldn't consider his year "great". He played on a line with John Tavares and Matt Moulson all season, and got ample powerplay time. And he scored a little over 50 points. He's still a terrible skating defensive liability, just one that made a nice pass to two really good goal scorers.

Wolski is not the answer for competing with guys like Semin, Ovechkin, Backstrom.

Both players were far from proven coming into this NHL season. Can't say he rode those guys like they were great great players. Tavares also was out for a while with injury.

So Dubinsky had a great year putting up those same numbers but Pappy was just ok? One more point he would have led our team in scoring.

John T. is a better goalscorer than anyone on this team except a healthy Marian Gaborik.

Moulson put up 30 goals last year, again more than anybody except healthy Gaborik.

He makes a point though, it's hard to downplay the guys year when he's outscoring nearly everyone on the Rangers. Slumps or not.

It doesn't really matter if they were "proven" or not, they are both natural goal scorers. Besides, it isn't like they came in without any type of expectations and surprised. Moulson had another 30 goal season, and Tavares improved on an excellent rookie season.

Also, Tavares played 79 games. Far from "out for a while". For fun, Parenteau went 1-0-1, was even, and had 2 PIMS when he was out.

Dubinsky and Parenteau aren't comparable, either. In that Dubinsky is clearly the better player. He's not a liability defensively, or completely useless when he's not scoring like Parenteau. Just ask some Islander fans. A lot of them hate the guy.

Ask yourself this, would PAP be a 1st line forward on any team not named the Islanders? The answer is no, he would be a 3rd liner on any team with depth, in which case he's not even sniffing 50 points. His production this season is a reflection of his playing time he was given on the Islanders, he's not seeing those minutes on any competitive teams that don't have the Islanders lack of depth & veteran forwards... Slot him into his natural position on the depth chart of a competitive team, and he a 30-40 point forward.

Yeah a lot of Isles fans didn't like PAP at all, hell they wanted to get rid of him. He was basically an AHL player getting first line minutes with two really good players. He's the same PAP we had last year, a decent call up option when players are hurt.

who cares if Staple says he is likely to be bought out..........he doesnt make the call. I agree its dumb to buy out talent.

he is going to stay. Thats my opinion and him going is Staples. Other beat writers do not say its a for sure thing at all
