i'd like to think Hank is classier than Roy, but I don't know them personally... Roy was one of the ultimatly motivated, win-driven athlete I've ever seen... and very emotional, something hank isnt. Just think Ray Bourque... all-time leader in points etc... can you imagine him without a cup? ... not comparing Hank with one of the best dmen of all time, but why do so many guys sign in Detroit, often for less $?... CUP CUP CUP
exactly. and nah i think Hank stays in NY he loves it under the bright lights but you do have to wonder. like you said, and i agree, i don't know him personally but, i would hate to have something like him leaving for a chance to win happen. especially when he's in his prime years.
Another 30+ minute game for Girardi, but this time, he seemed to feel it in the 3rd period. You can't ride one defensemen for half the game over and over again. He's a phenomenal D, but he's not a machine. Also, if Erixon is only going to play for ~8 minutes a game, he needs to be sent down and replaced with someone who can go AT LEAST 15 minutes. If that player isn't in the system, then they need to go out and trade for one.
Good game from Callahan, Dubinsky, Sauer, Richards, Gaborik, and Del Zotto. Average game from Henrik, Girardi, McD and Stepan.
I don't even get mad anymore.. Totally saw it coming. At this juncture I can only wish for a major trade or some guys from the AHL getting a chance.
If they lose out this homestand...I could see some major changes come about.
1. Brad Richards
2. Marian Gaborik
3. Michael Del Zotto
I actually didn't think the team played that bad, but they played STUPID at the end of the game. They looked awesome in overtime, and for most of the 2nd + the beginning of the third, but you aren't going to win against a hungry young team playing a 30 minute effort.
Neutral Milk Hotel are literally GOAT

The Rangers wouldnt even have been in this game without a gift major call against Konopka.
They got severely outplayed (again). If you want to scapegoat a player and ignore nearly everything else that happened in this game, thats your perogative, but good teams would've overcome that.
Agreed. While Wolski's penalty may have hurt the team by changing the momentum, Torts hurt it by not calming the team down with a timeout. Callahan, Richards, Girardi and Dubinsky hurt it by not responding to that change in momentum. "Momentum" is not an irresistible force. When it changes, good teams find a way to change it back.
I mentioned it in another thread, but I think this is why we really need an "energy" line. We don't really have a line that can be counted on to just go out there and show 100% balls to the wall effort on every shift.
