Fair point, I'm just saying that losing to arguably the greatest football player of all time isn't the worst thing in the world.

This is also the United States.

I'm with you, if ya gonna lose out, Jim Brown is not small potatoes

By the way, I don't know why this is just hitting me now, been going on for years, but every comment from every hockey analyst regarding the NYR's and their fans expectations this year all have to include "....but Ranger fans you have to make the playoffs before you can win the Cup..."

Really? Oh thats how that works

It's like WE were the only ones putting high expectations on this team. And of course that was only a minority of the fans, but the rest are lumped into the generalization.

Also kinda funny seeing that an 8th seed won the Cup last year.

Canadiens say Hi

I wouldn't be surprised if he moved to Montreal

Looks like they are going to send him down immediately, which they couldn't do if they claimed him.

Any way Rangers put in a claim for Flyers Sestito?

Any thoughts? Would provide reliable toughness, especially in light of fact that Asham always seems to be injured.

Dallas Stars place Tom Wandell on waivers...http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/bio/?id=5411 can play wing center and only 26.. Rangers need depth. Please claim him.

I would take Wandell. Sestito wouldn't be the worst move. If Torts wants more aggression, he will bring it. Would also piss off the Flyers.

At this point, I'd consider trading Brad Richards for Ovechkin straight up - how much worse could he possibly be?

Mike Rupp scored a hat trick, too.

Don't see how a hat trick negates the fact he literally never passed the puck during world juniors.

And I don't mean literally as in fake literally I mean literally as in he legitimately actually never passed the puck in that tourney, go to the tape.

DiPietro also admitted injuries, losing and fan hatred over the past 3 years made him think about killing himself at one point.

I hope DP gets bought out, and then he signs on with the Rangers as a back-up. I legitimately like him.

Umm...no.

If the media and fans in Long Island have shown this much hatred, causing depression, then I hope for everyone's sake that he doesn't sign here.

He feels the pressure of his contract. I said after he is bought out.

Yeah, but he's flat out bad. MSG chants "Henrik!" whenever Biron is having a bad game. DP wouldn't exactly be welcomed with open arms and with love.

It really does seem that you would like every single player on the Rangers.

Because I like Dipietro? I have always liked Dipietro. As a back-up? I am not seeing the correlation.
