Also forgot to mention Staal. But I agree. He shouldn't look at this as strictly injury related, and I don't think he is. AV did say they'd like to bring in some more offensively skilled players.

Agreed. But anyone with real hockey knowledge/understanding of what our team IS, knows that we don't have enough offensive talent. Ryan Callahan is not an elite hockey player. Heart and soul? Yes. But we need less guys like him and less grinders, and more pure offensive guys who know how to light the lamp.

I am half lukewarm on this and half excited. I like AV and i think it will be a good fit for this team. He was the best available IMO and 1000X better then Messier. But the other more realistic side of me suggests that this is just another chapter in the failed misguidings of Glen Sather.
i can't see them abandoning defense at the expense of adding some more scoring talent. we need more scoring in the top nine.

Who needs to root for the team to do well when we can just predict bad things?

Giving in and hiring Mess as an assistant would be a horrendous decision

I suspect he wouldn't take it anyway. Wants to be HC. Doesn't seem to be interested in a lesser position.

Im confused. So is AV keeping Sully as an assistant? Is he bringing another one in? So confused.

I don't know whether to roll with the "cool" pessimist view or the rebel optimist view.

How would you guys think of me?

Come to my side. I'm excited to see how this summer goes and to see how he approaches this team. I think the players will be able to bond with AV easier too. Who knows? Might make a nice difference...

I think it goes at least 6 games. And if we had a healthy Staal and Clowe we beat Boston and push the Pens very hard. Minimum.

Join the rebel side, we're a lot of fun and have weekly camp outs and stuff. But be prepared to hear the most annoying crap next season if we ice the puck.

There is no guarantee for that.

Besides, the Rangers don't really have the depth to cover up for their losses. LAK also lost their #2 dman in Mitchell this year. Boston was playing without Seidenberg in that NYR series for the most part. Clowe had a warning sign with previous injuries in SJ, yet he was acquired anyways despite suffering an 'undisclosed upper body injury' earlier this season with SJS. Chalk that up to management for acquiring injury prone player. Every team is banged up and injured come playoff time.

AV should hire Denzel Washington and take morning jogs to bond with the team.
