Love this picture from last game. Wish they had a shot of Scott in there too. Bad time for Skinner to push Staal in the back with them on the ice.



Keep getting these points boys. Whats the word on Callahan and MDZ -didn't see an update in MDZ thread-? Would love a shutout for Hank's bday, but...

3-2 Win
AA snipes
Gaborik
McD

I REALLY want Anisimov to shoot more. I think he has the hardest wrist shot on the team. Now, work with me here guys...Gaborik CLEARLY has the best wrister on the team, but thats largely due to his sickly quick release. Arty has the absolute loonnngggeessttttt release ever, which requires a full cradle wind up.

If he realized "**** I have space, SHOOT!" he'd be fine, but if there's a D man on him he will never have time to get his shot off.

Which is why most of Arty's goals are scored on the rush when he has the time not only to wind up but to use the defender as a screen.

He is a little goofy and is unable to get good wood on the puck in front-of-net situations, but he is very good at shooting the puck. No question.

Dubi reprimand had little to do with circumstance. He had to be placed in coach doghouse. Any player that was intended to be traded and the deal failed to materialize has to go through this. Why? I am not sure, but it just almost always happens. I am sure even Nash should go through something like that. May be it is the way to say "Welcome back to the family" or something like that. They say " they don't really love you, if they never break your balls". In other words, I don't think it is anything significant. He will be back tonight and will show better effort.

LGR!!!!

What's up with the refusal to play Erixon? He's by all means NHL ready and has honed his small rink game in AHL for quite a while now. He's a blue chip prospect that needs NHL experience and would probably take the chance if he got it.

Yet we continue to play stray cats on D other teams have casted away. Weird.

We have a really good top four and our depth defensemen are serviceable. From what I hear, Erixon needs to get stronger for the NHL game and can use the minutes in the AHL.

The way the organization has been developing defensemen recently, I'm not concerned in the least.

I'm envisioning less than 10 minutes for the Woywitka-Bickel pairing. On a back-to-back night that is tough.

Torts says pregame if Rangers had more people healthy, he'd be benching Brandon Dubinsky tonight #NYR

Obviously he could be bluffing, but either way it's pretty clear that he's pushing Dubi's buttons. Hope it means that Brandon comes out playing hard and disciplined.

I would hope that Dubin$ky comes out with a fire under his ass, but it's most likely not happening.

This would suggest that he isn't going to play much, at least to start.

I figure Tort's approach will be

"He gets a first shift. If it goes well, he'll get a second. If it goes well he'll get a third."

For the entire game. Dubi has no margin for error here.

Torts is pushing Dubi. I seems to respect him but hates his immaturity. The episode of Behind The Bench that was on yesterday, Torts insinuated that Dubi steps on the logo a lot (they get fined for that, he said Dubi is the fine master or something). I think he wants him to succeed so much and now he's just really disappointed his lack of discipline.

If that doesn't light a fire under you, then you're not a competitor.

Torts from earlier today

http://blogs.northjersey.com/blogs/r...insky_penalty/

“I thought it was, quite honestly, just a ridiculous penalty, at a time of the season, when you’ve got 20 games left that we need to be working on other things as far as details than that nonsense,” Tortorella said.
“And, quite honestly, if other people were healthy tonight he wouldn’t be playing tonight. As much as I like this kid and as much as I think he can do some good things for us, we need to start seeing it now. Not that bull(^*#@!), but play and try and help us.”

I guess this isn't a terrible time to give some people some rest. If we can keep putting up points all the better.

Gotta give the miscellaneous people some playing time as well if you want them to be of any use when called upon in the playoffs.
