PRACTICE UPDATE - Tuesday, January 6:
* All Rangers skated today at the MSG Training Center except for: Mark Messier (rest), Dan LaCouture (concussion - day to day), Jussi Markkanen (flu), Jamie Lundmark (knee), Richard Scott (concussion).
* Rangers recalled left wing Chad Wiseman from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).
* Rangers placed defenseman Joel Bouchard on Injured Reserve retroactive to January 3 with a hamstring injury.
I love how Messier, yet again, had to sit out today's practice for rest. Good job jackass. Keep playing him 18+ minutes, that'll make the team better.
Chad Wiseman has been recalled, I wonder if he'll take Rheume's or Hlavac's spot on LW of Nedved's line.
LINES SHOULD BE:
Simon Lindros Kovalev
Wiseman Nedved Carter
Rucinsky Holik Ortmeyer
Rheume Messier Barnaby
For god sakes! Use Holik as a CHECKING CENTER!! That line could still give offense with Rucinsky and Ortmeyer as wings. Or better yet, see if Lindros and Rucinsky can rediscover that chemistry they had. Both are flying and are on different lines. I think Simon, Holik and Ortemeyer would be an awesome checking line. Too bad we have such an effin ****** coach.
that Wiseman is Lacouture insurance. Perhaps if Danny's not feeling too well we'll get a chance to see Wiseman. Where he would play is anybody's guess now that Nedved's once again a left wing, a position I believe he's not too comfortable with, but given Sather's crazy jiggering, that's where he's ended up.
