Hammer got hurt reaching over the table for the last piece of bread in the players lounge. From: @AGrossRecord
Sent: Apr 8, 2013 11:50a

Torts says D Roman Hamrlik, not on the ice for the morning skate, is "banged up." Hamrlik has been a healthy scratch last three games.

No estimates. He's coming along but remains out indefinitely. Hopefully he'll be good to go in a couple weeks or so, but there's really been no timetable.

Hopefully he's back earlier than that. If he wears a visor, he should play with it in a good amount of games before the playoffs--assuming we make it.

Staal could return in 7 to 10 days.

New York Rangers defenceman Marc Staal could be back on the ice within seven to 10 days and return to the lineup before the end of the regular season, according to Hockey Central Insider Nick Kypreos.

Best case scenario: he misses two games.

Worst case scenario: he misses four.

We really need him back, so this had better be true. Hopefully he can be back for Buffalo or at least for the Debbies in MSG.

Why?

Del Zotto had a bad game - it was one game. He has been the Rangers best and most consistent defenseman this season. I really can't think of more than maybe 3 or 4 games where Del Zotto was noticeably bad. No need to be so reactionary - that might be asking a bit too much from this board, though.

I can't wait until Staal comes back so we can put MDZ on his right side; DZ had some of his best games with Staal. Some people think DZ was bad on the right, but I disagree. He had his ups and downs, there, but DZ's best moments this season, IMO, came when he was paired with Staal. I'd like to get DZ more acclimated with the right side of the ice as it is. I think it would allow him to be more in control of the play when the puck is on his stick, puts him at a better shooting angle. We need to move one of our LD to the right side eventually. I think it would be a mistake to trade DZ over Girardi just because he's left handed and Girardi right; and we're definitely not trading McDonagh or Staal.

Because we never know what we're gonna get with DZ. could be a great game, or it could be a return to his sophomore season. He's a good 2nd pairing defenseman, and I don't want him getting 25 minutes per night. (Or Girardi for that matter, but I guess we don't have much of a choice there.)

Del Zotto's been great this year but let's think about the huge difference between having Staal in the lineup and not having him there.

Staal-Girardi
McD - Stralman
MDZ - Moore

Versus

MDZ-Girardi
McD - Stralman
Eminger - Moore

The first group is arguably the best in the NHL.

When you are missing your best overall dman it's always a big loss. His return will be huge for this team.

and note it will take him a few games to get back into the swing, so within 4-6 games he should be back up to par...

MDZ has been one of our most consistent defensemen... he had a bad night, no need to **** on him just yet

Agreed. I would put money on Staal still being better than Eminger in those 4-6 games.

Not a knock on Eminger who we are actually lucky to have as a 7th D

Can't ****ing wait until Marc is back. The defense is infinitely better with him in the lineup. We could do without him when Girardi was playing over his head the first half of last year, but he's integral now. Just putting him back in gives us 3 really good pairings.

Makes a huge difference...MDZ and Moore together would be an interesting 3rd pair

Moore has shown more responsibility in the last 4 games than Del Zotto has and that's the sad part...

Staal in time for the playoffs sounds like a godsend.

Moore has poise, size, speed and a heavy shot which I would like to see more

Im reading this as 7-10 days before he gets on the ice for practice. It will likely be longer before he can play in a game.

This is literally not true. Do you mean in the last ONE game? Then yes, in that case you're right.

Stralman is a very under rated player for this team. He's really stepped up.

You're right I was so frustrated with Del Zotto last night that I am still fuming. I think his positioning was a little weak against carolina the other night but nowhere near as bad as Toronto. I think he is forgetting is main job as a defenseman is to play defense. He was awful last night. The worst I've seen from any defenseman this year. The worst. You have to know your opponent. That was not the team to be dicking around on the ice with. He hung Girardi and Lundqvist out to dry. He should be ashamed.

Moore is playing <10min TOI. MDZ gets >22min TOI, what would Moore's game look like pushing 20-25 min TOI. I'm sure we would see some warts. Hopefully next year Moore's TOI will increase once he settles in.
