Well it isn't. He's creative, can score, and can actually do something with the puck unlike Mitchell.

Agreed 100%. But I don't think he could survive in the kind of system the Rangers currently play.

The Whale play the same system that NYR play. He is doing pretty well there, just saying...

Same system, slower pace, less talent. I think if he could help, he would have been called up.

No on sending down Mitchell.
But yes on trying something new.

No Zuc, no Avery.
If no more deserving candidates (Yogan, St. Croix)
then why not a quick energy guy --- Bourque?

What's the worst that could happen?

Why is Zucc no longer allowed to make this team anymore? Can someone please let me in on this mystery?

Bingo. Torts and Glen are in the business of winning. Their jobs depend on it [insert Dolan joke here]. If Avery, MZA, or Wolski gave this team a better chance of winning, not just scoring goals, they'd be on the roster right now. Vendetta or no vendetta.

Sean would not want his supporters fighting amongst themselves! Why do you have to be so mean spirited?

Give St. Croix a shot, he may be young but my god Mitchell is horrendous, I like bickel though for his fighting.

He's in Juniors, he isn't eligible to play in the NHL until next season.

A league wide conspiracy of GMs who care about slighting Avery more than winning is what made them all pass on Superstar Sean when he went through reentry waivers.

Because that totally makes more sense than the fact that he is not a good player anymore.

Oh boy...don't know what thread to stick these thoughts so here are just a couple things on my mind-

1) Didn't we have 2 groups of 6 out there in the final couple minutes against Pitt? So why does it come as a shock when guys like Mitchell and Boyle were put on the ice when we had what, 9 or 10 forwards out there from when Hank came to the bench til the end.

2) The doling out of ice time to Boyle and Prust. I am a big fan of Brian Boyle and I think he's been much better this year than last year even. Prust has not been as effective as last year but he is still a good soldier. Guess what folks, Boyle has been on the ice at even strength for 28 goals for and 23 goals against (Prust = 20 for and 16 against). Those are facts. Thats called being a +5 (Prust = +4). Brad Richards on the other hand has been on for 35 goals for and 36 against. -1 ladies and gents. So is the problem really that Boyle and Prust get too much ice time? I mean whose average minutes are too low? Our top forwards play 19-20 minutes and a few of them hardly kill penalties. Stop with this nonsense. Boyle and Prust are trustworthy and they help the team and aren't being overexposed. Facts are facts.

3) Enough of this "we needed goalscorers in order to beat Pitt since we lost 2-0". This isn't cooking class boys and girls where if the cake doesn't rise you know its because you were short on the flour. This is hockey. Avery could come out his first shift and forecheck like a gangbuster and ignite the whole team. He could come out and start cycling the puck and draw a penalty. He could have a hat trick in the first 10 minutes. Or he could be invisible. Anything can happen. If fans have certain preferences for who they want in the lineup it is to make us a more formidable team in general. Not to rewind to our last loss and insert the player into the exact carbon copy of the game.

If you're going to mention being on the ice for goals for and goals against, then +/- becomes irrelevant because it doesn't factor in PP and PK. So I'm willing to bet that Richards has been on ice for more goals for than against,(because he plays on the PP) and Boyle has been on the ice for more goals against than for. (because he plays on the PK)
