Huge first game tomorrow. I hope the Rangers are ready for it, just gotta play hard and take it one game at a time! set the tone for the game and series early!

I think we see a relaxed determined lundqvist in net and great efforts from all and better performances from Stepan (than last yrs playoffs)and kreider (than this season).

Lighten up, Francis. We're just killing the time before the start of the series. There's only so much analysis that you can do. We usually keep things pretty tightly on topic on our board; we're just having a little fun. Things get serious when the GDT comes up.

I guess you have never critized any product in your entire life. Life must be good when everything tastes great.

Nobody has any love for Gary Thorne? Loved that guy when he used to do the NHL games on ESPN. I'm pretty sure he does baseball and college hockey games now.

Someone back me up on this one...

And while we're at it we should just stop discussing hockey and play the games ourselves! I'll get Bettman on the line!

So I guess nobody should ever criticize GMs, coaches, owners, bosses, or politicians either, huh?

Of course, we'll probably just end up with an incredibly boring broadcaster with an extensive vocabulary.
That... would be a nightmare. Imagine Buck saying "waffleboard" and "My goodness."

I'm interested to see Hagelin in the playoffs. He was really good before he got suspended for the hit on Alfredsson and then seemed a little timid when he came back. Need to see more of the pre-supension Hagelin.

There is a reason Emerick was the #1 broadcaster for Fox, then NBC, now NBCS. Same for Buck with Fox. Criticize when it is warranted. THe criticism of Emerick and Buck is laughable.

Brassard has never played in the playoffs. He had a shoulder injury when Columbus got swept in 2009. Moore was drafted when Columbus lost to the Wings. Last season was DZ's first playoff experience. He didn't play in 2011. Stepan is the key. Richards is a good playoff player. Stepan had 1 goal and 8 assists last spring. That's not good enough.

While I can appreciate Doc, respect his professionalism and accuracy - I can't stand his voice. I goes right through me. No doubt that his call is tainted for me considering he was the Devils guy for so many years, so i'm definitely biased...

BUT from an objective point of view, and I'm dead serious about this - Even though he is regarded as one of the best in the biz, the NHL seems to put all of its eggs in one basket by having him do EVERY big game, EVERY Olympics, etc. For a non-hockey fan watching, his voice is very annoying. I've heard this from many people.

So i dont necessarily think that he's the best choice for EVERY game, because the new fans the NHL are trying to attract are going to be watching the National games on NBC and some may not be able to take his voice or "get" his call because he's a bit of an "acquired taste"

Good point, I'm also interested to see hopefully the return of the puck possession Hagelin from earlier in the season where he would twist this direction, then that one, then back the other way, then back again until finally the defenseman got tired of following him and gave him the space to shoot or find an open man. Haggy seemed a bit tired in the second half, but I think he'll get his legs under him for the playoffs.

That said, I believe the key to this series will be staying out of the penalty box. Giving Washington too many chances up a man will kill the New York Rangers even if they do have good PK'ers, especially without Boyler. The Craps are totally beatable if you do not give them too many opporunities with the man advantage.

Brassard will come up huge for this team. Mark my words.

The Caps are going to want to focus on Nash, Stepan, Cally, and Richards. Brass is going to be the one that gets the better matchups on defense and will make the best of them. Look for Kreider to pot a couple gimmes thanks to his work and vision.

That's horrible logic. Hockey players get payed millions to play the sport of hockey. Does that mean they're free from criticism?

I have always liked Jim Hughson. He's probably my favorite hockey broadcaster.

Oh ok, NEW fans aren't going to watch because of Emerick. SUUUUUUUURE. Are you talking about young kids? 20-somethings who are just being introduced to the game? If it is the kids you are worried about, maybe they can have the guy who does the voice of a popular cartoon character call the game? If you really think ratings will drop because people do not like the announcer, than I have a bridge in brooklyn to sell you. When JD first left, people complained ad nauseum about biringing in Michelletti. I have grown tired of Sam Rosen, sure not going to stop watching Rangers games because I do not like him.

Do you need to be tutored in reading comprehension? I said, WHEN IT IS WARRANTED. I did not say do not criticize.

Will you watch a game he is calling over a Rangers game being called by Emerick or someone you do not like?

Are you related to Emerick? Some people's personal opinions vary from your own, that is completely allowed.

There is a reason Glen Sather has been our GM for so long, too.

Sometimes people make ****** decisions.

I don't know a single person who likes Buck, who's twice as bad as Doc.
