The team has to get Boyle out of the 3C position.

Moving Boyle to a wing wouldn't be too bad if JT stays at a C and Richards comes back.

The only problem is Boyle's recent face/off dominance. They said at one point tonight he was 10 and 2. Otherwise I can't stand him as a 3rd line center.

I would say ideally you have a situation where both of them get hot at the same time propelling the Rangers to a huge win streak. Then when one gets merely room temperature, the other stays hot, and then they rotate like so.



But ideally neither of them would go through the slump that Gaborik is in now.

The Rangers really need to continue winning with this mostly easy schedule they have.

That's great news. At least it's not the eye if I am reading the tea leaves correctly.

I believe the Rangers are 8-1-1 in their last 10 with Nash in the lineup if my math is correct.

Feeling like we're about to go a-streakin'.

It's pretty much then a question of faith in JT as a face off man. Boyle is good at face offs but he has become a little anemic offensively and physically he hasn't been using size. Which he has. To his advantage. For. Now, I'd give JT some Chances at C but limited , like a sample. Grigorenko and Ott do that in Buffalo and it seems effective, so I don't see why we don't try it for a game or two.

I thought this too and now I'm no longer allowed within 500 feet of a Ruby Tuesday's.

And I think 7-0-1. No reason to include the regulation loss.

7-0-1 in their last 8. 8-1-1 in 10. (Well with Nash)

This team looks like they're about to take over...the Pens are 6 points ahead of us having played 2 more games. We should be able to overtake them if we keep playing like we are. That game in Pittsburgh coming up is HUUUUUGE.

If the defense can tighten up a bit we'll look really, really great.

I find that if I use it, my visits to other boards are coincidentally more friendly.

This and just overall health. Of all times for our team to finally hit the injury bug. Good ol' Rangers luck.

Agreed. We also need to start playing a lot better on the road. 11 goals in 7 games, 2-4-1. Ugliness. 9-4-1 at home, looks great.

The forwards are starting to produce and are getting back to the way they were playing last year. Nash looks like a man on a mission, and now pucks are starting to go in for him. Stepan is improving every night, Callahan is on top of his game, Miller is starting to become very effective on nearly every shift, and Hagelin is Hagelin. If Richards and Gaborik get going offensively, this team will be a 4+ goal threat every game.

I hope I don't get murdered for this, but I want to see vintage Hank.

I think he has been excellent this year (obviously) but I also want to see him have one of those classic "I'm stopping every shot lol" games.

I still remember that 41 save shutout against Vancouver where they were taking highlight reel chances and he just said, "Nope".

That too. Hank has been fantastic (besides maybe one stinker) but he CAN be better.
