I don't think it's going to be that bad. They still have Newbury, Thomas, Hrivik, Miller, Jean, Segal, Grant...

assuming EVERY F is healthy then the Rangers have

Nash, Richards, Callahan
Kreider, Stepan, Gaborik
Hagelin, Boyle, Pyatt
Rupp, Halpern, Asham

Gabby may or may not be ready IF the NHL is back soon. the 4th line are a bunch of grinders. Kolarik could make it but would they use him as a spare? Is Haley more of a spare? Those are the two options in my opinion.

What I was implying is that Torts likes that grinder, go all out for 60 minutes type player. Not saying that Kolarik can't do it, because I'm pretty sure he could, but that there are other options that should be before him IMO. Haley would probably be the spare for the team because they have ASSham-Halpern-Rupp as their 4th line (I strongly believe that Haley is a better player than Asham is and is younger and longer lasting). Kolarik can definitely make the squad, but he should be in CT for now.

That's a common misconception about Torts. He likes his skill players too. Richards is one of his favorites not to mention how would explain him keeping Christensen over Avery last September? Also, Torts has been quoted (I don't have the exact quote) how he's impressed with Kolarik. In regards to Haley, he's another goon we already have two of those. If Haley were to replace someone it should be Rupp not Asham.

True, but I see Haley as Prust's replacement. Not Asham. Also, if they need to straighten up someone from being to big of a goon, they'll end up like Avery.... in his dog house and not playing. But that doesn't really matter much because that 4th line will get moved around. So Rupp, Asham, Haley, and maybe even Halpern will be switched in and out a lot.

Halpern is more valueable than Rupp Asham Haley. he kills penalties and wins faceoffs... solid team guy too... i dont know why they signed Asham... couldnt a guy like Haley do the same thing... doesnt Asham still have some games to sit due to this..

One regular season game left for Asham to serve I believe

Absolutely unbelievable JT Miller goal just now. 2nd of the night.

4-2 Whale.

Rivaled his first goal with how nice it was.

Collects puck at left faceoff dot. Cuts to the net, deking around the right dman. Looks pass all the way which draws the left dman to cover Thomas who is crashing the net on the RW. Miller keeps looking pass, drives almost to the left post, then dekes right to his backhand at the last second around the goalie.

That really barely does it justice. Play was so smooth.

I hope there will be a highlight of it on the Whale or AHL website. Thanks.

Pretty enjoyable win against the floundering Sound Tigers tonight. Have to win those contests. Miller's second goal was certainly dazzling.

Posted it in the Prospects thread, but thought I'd post it here as well. Miller's goals at 2:20 and 3:00. The second goal was a work of art.

Tons of tickets. What kind of food do you like? I'm a big fan of City Steam Brewery. You'll enjoy it, especially if you're into craft/local beer. Food is solid too. Black-Eyed Sally's has a good rep for BBQ and the like. There are some more upscale restaurants around as well.

yep that was a sweeeeeet 2nd goal........I have a feeling IF there is a season this kid will be on the playoff roster. Makes sense to me to go with grinders in Rupp, Halpern , Asham during the yr but come playoff time a guy like Miller could be another Hagelin.

They've got this great new one on tap called the Lunatic...a nice mix between a barleywine and an American strong ale, so they say. The Careless Love is great too!

Any word on when Dylan Mcilrath will be back? More specifically will he be back by the 14th by any chance? My first time in Hartford for a game and really wanted to see him play? Has he been at the home games while recovering? Was looking forward to maybe getting him to sign a puck for me. Thanks
