ROR spin-o-rama goal. I think a user on this site posted it.

The angle was impressive in the first post, but both goals were 'half-boards Gabby'. Start showing me examples of explosiveness with the puck and we can officially say he's back.

And not to harp, but his shot was still weak in both examples. Re-building shoulder strength takes awhile, but neither video show the zip his shots use to have (which was one of the main, if not biggest reason for his low shooting %).

great now watch them add a 10 misconduct if you do that... i wont be shocked if that gets added in.

Who gets the extra minor if a guy tucks another guys's jersey in during a fight? I mean WTF, they need to get a consistent method for suspensions before they tackle this nonsense. And why doesnt a guy with a visor get an extra 2 unless he takes his helmet off? I really think its good sportmanship when a visored player removes his helmet before a fight.

You mean this goal? The one that had me incredibly excited that the Rangers finally had themselves a dominant first line? Really bummed that didn't work out.

I know there are some ancient posters around here that can rejoice us all in a tale of McDonagh's value at the time of the trade

Better yet, can someone name a current defenseman or prospect McDonagh was comparable to at that time? Or maybe a "similar to _______" type of thing that they do at the draft.
Read the comments at the end of this article. EVERYONE, Rangers and Habs fans included, was scratching their head at his inclusion in the deal because he was a high draft pick that was progressing very well. Everyone thought Sather would be lucky to get rid of Gomez' contract, let alone return any sort of real value in the trade.

In reference to your 2nd question, can you name a current defenseman that McDonagh is comparable to? I can't, really. He's a unique player.

Not for the Rangers. It's been over a year, and I'm still weird with that.

I meant a player McDonagh was compared to back in the day I changed my username so I'm not actually a random

Fleury was average today against Columbus. Pittsburgh has an issue in net.

Yep, that's the one. I thought that would be a dominant line.

Oilers have such a skilled top-6

Until they get injured.

And if they make the playoffs... that'll be ugly

On top of a 3pter against Carolina. Talk is he could be our #1 center between Gaborik and rookie Boone Jenner who is having a monstercamp/pre-season. Could be an over reaction but if its not him it will be Arty.

It will be weird watching Dubi-Arty for us and Brassard for the Rangers.

With how up and down Dubinsky is offensively he should save them for the regular season.

Did the Devils have Ryder, Jagr, Clowe and Brunner when Kovy went down last year?
