Rangers @ Flyers (3-2) [W]

Maybe I'll work up the strength to add a poll. Maybe a mod can do it for me

From the GDT:

Top line was great. Lindberg and Fast as well, esp. Fast on the PP.

Strålman the top defenceman by far. Took a few risks here and there, but always sorted it out.

3 stars:

Brassard
Strålman
Zuccarello

HM: Pouliot, Fast

Brass looked great. Made some tape to tape saucer passes that created a lot of opportunities.

if Brassard somehow picks up where he left off last year this team will be very dangerous.

Yup, if he keeps it up then the Rangers should realistically be able to roll out 3 good scoring lines and a solid 4th line (assuming Stepan signs)

Zucc looked good, Pouliot looked pretty good. Fast and Lindberg looked good together and solid overall. Good puck possession but didn't generate a ton of great chances. I blame Pyatt who really seemed to drag that line down, but maybe I'm just being too critical. He just doesn't seem to keep the play going all that well

I like Dorsett a lot, the Rangers need to find him enough icetime to be effective.

Didn't notice much of Yogan other than his assist but I wasn't looking for him.

McDonagh and Girardi were meh. McIlrath wasn't very good but seemed to be trying to force stuff there, like he was really just trying too hard to impress. Stralman looked good.

Dom Moore also continued to look quite good and I think will be a great addition to the team

Talbot was solid even if he could have had the first goal, it was a good shot. Biron also was good but didnt face as much work

Rangers in general seemed to be more aggressive than they have been under Tortorella. Pressured the puck more offensive and defensively, less standing around. Still rusty and sloppy in a lot of areas but looks like some potential is there

Still think this team is pretty underrated offensively if they get Stepan signed and Richards has a decent year, and the play of Fast and Lindberg makes me feel good about their depth and the future of the team

Like Pouliot's game. Felt bad for McI. Seemed like the mistakes got into his head a little bit. Chalk it up to nerves. Hopefully he has a better game next time, assuming he isn't one of the cuts.

Call me crazy, but I believe there's a chance Kreider plays himself off the top line and ends up spending some time in the AHL while Fast earns some time on the top line

Pouliot is an excellent skater. I tend to think that this guy could really open up the ice and I hope he sticks.

I was very impressed by Kantor and Allen, the 2 UFA's they signed. Kantor's speed is a factor and he finishes every check and is hard on the puck. He looks like he is close to the NHL.

Allen's skating was impressive and he was able to join the rush a few times. I wouldn't put him on the same level as McDonagh or Moore but he was easily as fast as Staal or Stralman. I was surprised.

I liked the Haley-Moore-Dorsett line as an energy line. Haley was much better in this game than last night. Skated well and threw some good hits. He was PKing as well which would be a plus.

Lindberg made quite a few underrated little plays. He would easily have an effect on every game even if he isn't scoring. He reminds me a lot of Stepan with his hockey IQ and strong positional play.

McIlrath was either bad, or good. No middle ground. He was laying some good hits and clearing the crease but his pinches were ill timed.

Fast looks like a smaller version of Brassard with the way he sees the ice and controls the puck. He and Kristo are very similar as well as far as their size and overall game.

Pouliot is going to get lucky this year if he can stay on a line with Brassard and Zuccarello. They were able to make quite a few plays and buzz around the Philly zone quite a bit.

It's not a big deal being that it's preseason, but we shouldn't be putting the scores in the thread titles.

Those little plays are underrated and its mainly hockey sense and feel for the game that allow for certain players to be in the right area. He did the same stuff at the World Juniors a couple of years ago.

Agree on Lindberg, but which Kreider game did you watch?

You've got little to no objectivity on Kreider. Let people critique him

Not true at all. I criticized his checking that led to the goal.

I thought the Rangers looked great. Brassard seems to make a great play every time he has the puck on his stick. It's like it's on a string, unreal.
