Dan Girardi (2/7: Skating in practice)

Gross: Rangers say D Dan Girardi is "banged up" and "day to day." Beyond that, nothing specific.

Edit 2/6: Jim Cerny: No update from Torts on whether or not Callahan or Girardi could play tomorrow...on Girardi's health status he says "not sure"

Not worried. Danny is a tough guy, but it's smart to give him some time off.

If he is out for an extended period of time, we're screwed.

Only thing I can think of is that he blocked a shot and his foot/ankle is too swollen to fit in his skate.

Don't know why else he would be a scratch all of a sudden right before the game

Only the second time he misses a game injured since he's on the Rangers, right?

Hope he's OK and back Thursday. Saw a stat last night that he had only missed 2 games since the start of the 07-08 season - that's 416 of 418 games.

In what is apparently an optional #NYR skate, no Girardi, Staal, Richards, Asham. Everyone else on, including Callahan

Hopefully just needs rest, and Cally is close

Yeah Richie. No camp for you with the flu. Play like crap. Skip optional skates. That a'boy. Maybe out looking for things to spend 6.67M on?

You think so? The dude rested for 8 months during the offseason/lockout.

Richards has no excuses for his **** play, **** skating, and **** decision making. Go through his instagram, the dude has been on a constant vacation for months. He didn't play anywhere during the lock-out and probably skated once a week.

Agree.

Zero excuses. And he has zero accountability. I'm still hoping we use that compliance buy out on him.

He does a lot for charity, but the guy hasn't shown up to play a game since May 25, 2012.

We are in month two of this season. He hasn't shown up yet. Unacceptable.

Yup, and to me that is inexcusable. This is the NHL. The cream of the crop.

I personally skate better and faster than both Richards, and Stepan. That's SAD.

Depending on severity. Minor hip flexor strain can be 5 days. A more severe injury can be 6 weeks. This doesn't seem to have been severe.

That's tremendously foolish. There is virtually no doubt in my mind I am a faster skater than Stepan, having played college hockey and still playing regularly. I don't have any of the TALENT that Stepan has, but skating was absolutely my strong suit and I have skated with plenty of junior players, ECHL players, a few NHL players and several ex-NHL players and there is no question that I am as good a skater as many of them and faster than some of them. I can't do 25% of the things they do with the puck, but that has nothing to do with skating. It's plenty likely that Nevisis could be just as good a skater as I am and doubting that someone here might be a better skater than Stepan, based solely on the fact that Stepan is in the NHL is misguided. Stepan genuinely has a bad stride, bad acceleration and mediocre top speed. I couldn't hold Stepan's jock strap as a hockey player; as an ice skater, I'm probably faster and more agile.

Good to know fellow hockey players exist on this forum.
