Switch Callahan and Gaborik and you've got yourself a deal.

He was, after all spending legitimate time on the 4th line in key situations last year, including some in the playoffs.
That's not my point. I didn't suggest taking him out of the lineup. I suggested opening his eyes to the fact he's pressing to do too much. Keep it simple stupid.

That line started the game. They were the lines until Kreider's penalty.

Gaborik Richards Nash
Kreider Stepan Callahan

Were the lines.

First line looks great but they're very thin after that.

Jason Arnott is still floating around. I know he's older than the sun but in a short season it doesn't matter much and he can help out on faceoffs, with the cycle, and 2nd PP unit.

Not much else out there and no guarantees Miller is ready or Fasth/Lindberg will be available the end of the season or they're ready to just be inserted in the lineup.

Henrik will get better, defense is getting better. Just need more reps.

I'm an Emminger fan, so keep him in the lineup.

Rangers got the Atlantic Banner last year, this year it's not as necessary. Just go into the playoffs playing their best hockey.

four things:
1. Gaborik
2. Kreider is playing like poopy
3. Hank is slowly getting back to form
4. This is why we got Nash, he may not have scored but his presence was definitely felt tonight on the ice

Even though both Richards and Stepan have put up points, it doesn't necessarily mean either of them have played well - there's much more to this game than just points. Their decision-making could be better. Richards looks sluggish and Stepan's intensity level could be higher. I'm just hoping to see some continued development from Stepan.

If this team could win a regular face-off or score an occasional power play goal...well they'd be better.

Really don't want a guy like Newbury. We've seen he isn't an NHLer. Would definetely give JT a shot. Even if he gets 0 points, he looked defensively responsible in the WJC.

Hank will be fine. So will Staalsy. We've seen them both struggle a but they're both extremely talented and elite in their field. They're way too good to suck long term.

This guy gets the first hat of the year! I'm just assuming they're still doing something like that being that we get no post-game...

Kreider needs to be a part of this team. He needs to reevaluate things and change it up quickly.

I disagree. I think both have made some bad plays, sure, but since both of them are so subtle at what they do well I don't think people are acknowledging they've been much better than half the board is trying to perpetuate.

Why keep Kreider here if he's a negative for the team. The bus did wonders for MDZ

I agree. Leave Kreider on the 2nd line. He did not look bad at all in the 1st. I can understand sitting him after the penalty and limiting his ice time because it was a tight game and we really needed a win, but sending him to the minors? C'mon that's just overkill.

if kreider is sent down which im not advocating, i dont want to see newbury, much rather see someone like hrivik, miller, or kolarik. Although i think torts' go to is going to be newbury because hes played here and he hasn't seen those guys play in camp or anything.

Better game. But it was still quite unimpressive. The tone on here would be a lot different if we had lost in OT.

Aside from a great start (and man it was fantastic) they really tailed off. I'm really uncomfortable with how little it takes the Rangers to get off their game. I feel they often lose to themselves.

Bad bounces, an inability to clear the puck, missing glorious scoring opportunities and just plain stupidity plague this team. The biased (IMO) officiating didn't help tonight.

The players individually looked much better though (aside from Hank). Nash is another level of deadly. Gaborik with that poisonous touch, Richards made a ton of creative plays. I liked Stepan's game much more then usual. Hagelin easily had his best game, and Boyle was a rock in the defensive zone.

On defense I thought everyone was good individually, they just have some kinks to work out as a unit. MDZ has been a rock all season, and Staal made some great plays. Nothing needs to be said about McD and Girardi, they played their game to an extent. I barely noticed Spazzy Steve, which is a good thing, so color me impressed.

I'll take the 2 points. But something has got to give eventually.

Love seeing Blues fans here. Blues are one of my non Ranger favorites, so glad to see both teams doing well. Loved watching them put an asswhipping on Detroit. Still mad that we didn't draft Tarasenko, but glad to see him with a team that I actually like.

The Redden: Flowerplay
99.9% agreed. Lundqvist has been crap. Not happy with the way he's played at all.

Agreed. He got tired of being overlooked and a spark was lit under his ass during the contract talks.

Agreed, Eminger and Stralman have been solid for us during their time here. I want to see them on a longer leash. They have and can contribute.

Kreider-Stepan-Gaborik

Agreed, I think those lines are ideal. I love Hagelin with Boyle and Pyatt. Awesome 3rd line.

With you on this. Newbury has had chances and has come up and not produced. Although I think JT needs a little more development i dont think im totally opposed to your suggestion

I have a feeling Segal is going to be called up just like the beginning of the season. Which i guess i would rather over Newbury being called up

As invisible as kreider has been we still need secondary scoring consistancy. Don't send him down just yet.

Sounds like if Kreider doesnt show drastic improvement the next couple games the Rangers will send him down.

Of course there is a lot of improvement necessary.
Game 3 was much better than the previous in terms of energy and competing.
That level of intensity does not hide the faults. They just beat a team that rolls 4 very decent lines. I'm pretty happy with that.
Perfect? No.
Better? Yes.
