Not going to be surprised if Stepan starts out slow.

We need our top line to live up to the talent.

In the words of Adam Sandler...
"Let's do it Rangers!"

With us missing Callahan and Hagelin and PHX having a pretty solid defense... Im not too optimistic about us winning this one. I say 3-1 L

Just once I wish I felt what Colorado fans did last night with Mackinnon.

I'm supposed to be excited for Jesper Fast? UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Would you also like to share the feeling of how they got Mackinnon?

I'd rather finish 30th and really get better than be kind of almost decent and never really go anywhere.

Bills v Browns and Rangers opener, should be a solid Thursday night

Without Callahan and Haglin it is going to be a challenge, somebody will step up!

Yeah cause Stepan didn't have a hat trick in his first NHL game or anything...

I like the idea of the analysis thread. Believe it or not, I rely on you crazy *******s for the best game analysis.

I'm not that upset with them although I do have a suspicion that the first line will struggle a bit. I would've preferred Zuccarello as the Hagelin replacement rather than Richards.

I'm more upset about the chosen defensive pairings. Even Torts figured out last season that McD-Girardi and Staal-Del Zotto didn't really work, does AV have to go through the same process before he figures it out as well?

Finally! I'll try to forget the preseason even happened, even if it was mainly just a tryout for the kids.

I'd put Miller on the 3rd line...

LGR!!!

I'm a Bills fan. Need I say more?

I'd rather have one horrific year and a steady progression with REAL talent than our garbage way of building a team.

We've taken steps back from a few years ago, and there isn't any real talent in the pipes. Same 'ol same 'ol.

While I agree Staal-Del Z had their ups and downs when together, McD-Girardi is arguably the best shutdown pairing in the game (and has been for 2 years now)...

BTW -- Holy F'ing ****.

Jesper Fast makes the team out of his first pro-camp and plays on the 3rd line on opening night. A pretty big deal to be perfectly honest.

We have talked about this kid being a legit prospect for a long time. For him to get a chance instantly is pretty huge.

Sorry man EVERYONE on that list with the exception of Miller and Kreider is mediocre at BEST. Miller should be a nice player, and Kreider......as much as I love him.....might be a total bust.

But it's opening day, and I'm excited for a new season.... I guess.

I just feel like this team has turned me into Mickey Rourke from The Fighter. "I'm an old, broken down piece of meat".

If we look good out of the gate, I'll change my tune.

I'm talking about real talent... not the half-ass B rate crap we always get sold.

Snake Oil talent....
Right...

So Staal, McDonagh, Girardi, Callahan, Hagelin. All B-level talent?

I asked my 8 month year old boy if the Rangers will win tonight..

He answered by clapping like there's no tomorrow..

How do we read that?

Most have a sneaking suspicion that he simply is a Callahan replacement and that he'll be sent down as soon as Cally is ready for duty.

But hopefully he'll impress and grab on to his spot for dear life. Not sure what he will be able to get going offensively with Pyatt and Boyle on his line though. I would've preferred to have him and Miller on the same lie to ensure we only have one line that is unable to score, not two.

I don't know if this is the case, but I somehow imagine that Jesper Fast is a pretty mean rapper. What do you guys think? He just looks lik a dude who can throw some beats around. The way he carry's himself. I am just speculating.

I'm gonna take an SMS-loan for the maximum amount and bet it all on the Rangers, that's how I'm going to read that!

I tried this once with my kid, he was clapping around and I took notes and translated it into text in accordance with the morse code. I got this complete weirdo pervers message. I am not doing that ever again.
