Hank has this 'I'm too cool for this' look. Yet he's in the air. Everyone else arms and clothing looks like it should when jumping, except his.

But if we get the right chemistry, it's a very nice 3 line attack. If our LW's disappoint... we may have to move Zuccarello to the left side and go to a more 2 line attack.

One thing I still don't like is our assortment on the power play. Having Girardi and Staal out there... no one is worried about them doing anything creative with the puck. They're basically just a dummy conduit to move the puck to one side or the other. I'd like to see Moore, Stralman, Del Zotto as d-men PP, and no one else. The team can make due with that.
I'll take Staalsy on the point .



Though I agree, Moore and DZ should get most of the playing time on both units.

AV wants to keep 13 forwards,8D and 2 goalies.

He likes 8 D because

Quote:
On Wednesday, before leaving for Banff, Vigneault said, salary cap considerations aside, he’d like to carry eight defensemen and 13 forwards. He explained why on the conference call.

“I’ve always felt for practice time it’s better,” Vigneault said. “You get better quality practices when you have four duos back there. I’ve always felt, for whatever reason, if you get short on numbers, it’s easier for a defenseman to play up front than, in my opinion, a forward to play on defense.”
http://blogs.northjersey.com/blogs/r...in_from_banff/

On Wednesday,AV said he knows its a cap world and that usually determines how many extra players are kept.

With 8 D,the Rangers keep Johnson at $600,000 and one extra forward. Do they keep Bickel at $750,000 over Johnson? He can some wing too.

Say Stepan signs for $3.2M and the 2 forwards are healthy by November

Callahan will miss the first 2-3 weeks. Hagelin misses most of October. The young guys get a chance to play and they play well. It creates a good dilemma for the Rangers.

Too many moving parts. The Stepan situation. Callahan and Hagelin. The young guys like Lindberg,Kristo and Fasth. Maybe Miller makes a late push into the mix. The veteran guys like Boyle,Pyatt,Asham and Powe.

He also has a cap hit that is almost 3.2 mil more than DG.

Knowing the Rangers luck I'm surprised no one came down with a twisted ankle or a torn acl like that kicker for the Cardinals against the Giants that happened like 10 years ago

Lundqvist does look different in that pic. Even when he's jumping in the air he's still looking cool.

Really looking like the locker room is not going to be any kind of problem at all this year. Seems like they are loving the new atmosphere and coach.

first off I would like to state that picture is freaking hilarious

second I agree with this lineup. Johnson as the 8th D does make sense since he's cheap and a vet.CLB connection too. IF Bickely makes it I will snap

Good for Dom, out bonding with his teammates and enjoying himself. It's very good to see him getting back to some kind of normalcy.

Agreed. If it's even him, I could be wrong looks like Dom, Brass, and MDZ so it's tough to say.

Really nice seeing him play at the level he is playing at in the preseason though, doesn't look like he missed any time really.

No doubt that Dion is a more physically intimidating presence on the back line....which is something I agree the team really needs. I just think back to the series with the Caps, when we went on to the ECF two seasons ago.

Giradi did a very nice job against Ovi in that series. I'm not so sure Dion would have performed as well. Maybe an imperfect metric, but it's a very debatable point to be sure.

Just watched this video of high points from 11-12 season.... Noticing that we still have alot of our main guys... If we get form back from Richards, and continued awesome play from our main core (Hagelin, Step, Cally, etc), we are in ridiculously good shape...



Like someone said, Richards even as a 3C is still better than 90% of Centers available, even with that "ridiculous" cap hit

How has Kristo and Pouliot been for you guys since Pre Season started?

Any chance Kristo makes opening night roster?

They've each only played one game so far. Kristo I thought started slow in his game, but improved as the game went on. I think he'll probably need some time in the AHL, but could start the season with the Rangers due to injuries to Callahan and Hagelin. Right now I would guess that Lindberg, and maybe also Fast, have a better shot.

Pouliot I thought looked very good in his game. Very noticeable player, good skater. I think he'll put up some points for us this year.

1. I don't think it will be an issue this year.
2. But it's pretty easy to be all sunshine and rainbows when the group with AV has faced 0 adversity yet.
