If they stay down and play through the AHL playoffs it should be a good experience for them. Miller arguably had bad luck, but he didn't net a few extremely good chances. If only goalies wouldn't have career games against us day in day out.
With Clowe I thought one would go down but both??? Meh. .
It is the right call for their development. If Torts is only confident enough in both of them to give them in the range of 5-10 minutes of ice time a night, that is not helping them. And getting to play in the Whale's playoffs will be good for them. The Rangers have the bodies, especially with the acquisition of Clowe, that they can afford to do this.
I'm excited to see what Clowe brings to the team. Going to be a late night for me, so I'm going to miss most, or all (hopefully not!) of the game tonight... I really wanted to see how Clowe looks. Oh well.
LGR! I smell a home and home sweep for the Rangers. Just do it.
Yeah, Torts doesn't know how to develop young talent**. How does he still have a job?
**Outside of Callahan, Dubinsky, Hagelin, Stepan, Staal, McDonagh, Girardi, Del Zotto, etc.....
what do those players have to do with kreider? kreider played his best game of the season in philly and then a good game against the sens. how does he get rewarded? sent to the 4th line for 2 games then sent to the whale. i dont know what torts' problem is.
I don't see Clowe on the 2nd, not in the Torts system. He's slower than Zucc, not a big playmaker, and hasn't scored this season. Being a physical player Clowe has taken a few hits and punches, and it shows. Most people without nyr-goggles agree he's now a typical 3rd liner.
