That wouldn't help, every time he got a point there would be a "See, we should have played him!" thread.

Torts says he can't injure guys in camp with his normal routine, which starts with two days of hard skating, no pucks. Not this year.

Tortorella says he's listening to leadership group about how to run camp, doesn't want players to be injured with "normal" camp routine


Steve Zipay ‏@stevezipay
Torts says Del Zotto has been skating very well in the informal scrimmages, and looked good today; glad Gilroy back for depth, puck-moving


Steve Zipay ‏@stevezipay
Tortorella says he's not worried about the mental grind,happy that no one was hurt playing in Europe

My bad

Here is the Brooks quote from today´s Post:
Quote:
Mats Zuccarello, playing for Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL, remains on the Rangers’ reserve list and would be eligible to play for the Blueshirts this season — without clearing waivers — if he were to sign with the club following the end of his season in Europe. That represents a change in the CBA.

Similarly, management will keep a keen eye on a pair of 21-year-old forwards skating in the Swedish league — Jesper Fast of HV 71, and Oscar Lindberg of Skelleftea — for possible late-season NHL duty.

“I don’t know if it’s a good rule or not,” Sather said. “But we’ll sure take advantage of it if it makes us better.”

very good news they have the option of signing Zuccarello for the end of this yr. He could also be used as trade bait. I would doubt Lindberg and Fast would play since they dont have NHL experience but they could go to the AHL

Torts compliments Gaborik, says he's completely changed. Can't keep him off ice now; was like "pulling teeth" sometimes b4 to get him on ice

I'm really excited about Gaborik. Hopefully the shoulder doesn't limit his shot the way it did Jagr's.

Very interesting. Sort of explains some of Tort's attitude toward him in seasons past despite Gabby putting up absurd numbers.

Very happy to hear that he's eager now though. I'd guess that he knows this might be the best chance he'll have at a cup so he's going hard.

I'd like Bickel in the lineup against Boston tbh. Haley, Rupp, Bickel...

Not saying it's needed, but it's appropriate for that kind of team.

Been seeing some pictures of other camps that are open to the public and they look absolutely packed. Good to see so much excitement around the sport being back.

I'm sick of this approach. If the Bruins want to goon it up, let them goon it up. They'll end up beating themselves if that's the way they want to play.

The new practice jerseys look infinitely better than those cartoony liberty jerseys.

Well, to be fair... it's not like we're sitting on a full roster that doesn't include at least 2 of those mentioned being on the ice (include Asham in those) so whether we like the approach or not is irrelevant. I'm just saying it's appropriate against certain teams regardless, and it makes me feel better knowing we can take care of business if business needs to be taken care of. Nothing more.

(I also prefer Bickel to Gilroy overall, so I'd still vote him being in the lineup no matter the opponent.)

I'm more curious on Fasth/Lindberg if they will come over after the SEL season is over and at the very least get some AHL experience since they're both under contract anyway. That could show how far along they could really be.
One thing not mentioned so far with Zucc, Fasth and Lindberg is that their respective national team got the first shot at them after any PO in Europe.

It's up to the national team coach in Norway if Zucc can go to NY, and to Mårts in Sweden if Fasth and Lindberg can go.

Those guys don't have to play like goons just because they're in the lineup. I think it's wise to have some bigger, tougher guys out against teams that play a rough style like the Bruins, so long as those big guys can take a regular shift and be defensively responsible. It's a short season, you can't afford to have anyone important get hurt because the goon squad you're up against felt that they could take liberties.

Something that has to be considered is that Bickel has most likely improved over the offseason. He is still young

no evidence to support that assumption at this point but would love for it to be true...no doubt he had plenty of motive after the playoffs to bust his butt to prove to torts he should be playing

the idea of adding lindberg and fast later in the year since we are already burning of a year of their contracts is certainly interesting...probably unlikely but still interesting

You sure about that Ola? I think it may be the other way around actually... would be interesting to know though. I think at least for Fast & Lindberg since they are contracted by NYR that they hold the rights. Like at WJC and so on...

Haven't heard but I would assume he stayed home. For all we know he hasn't even been working out. Not to mention flying can make PCS worse.

Sad situation.
