I get it now. Brooks is a psychic. Or Satherenney just listens to him for some reason.

It hasn't...

thanks much...perhaps with no Rangers game on Sunday, and no practice, they should've been in attendance for that game, prior to attending practice. Seems that would've made a lot of sense to me.

Renney knows how to say the right things. It will be interesting to see who gets called up, and in what role. Guys have gotten called up, and have been sent down with not a lot of ice time in the past. Let's hope this is different (assuming a kid, or kids, look good).

EDIT: interesting that Renney's looking for a new look on the PP (likely on the second PP unit). I do believe that one person who would work well is Immonen, who moves the puck very well in the offensive zone, keeps the puck in, and is steady with the puck. If there are 'speed' issues, they'd be less prominent on the PP, and on a fourth line. That would move Cullen to the point where he had success last season, and from where he can use his nice shot which he likes to take. Small change, but I think it would be a positive for the second unit.

On the other hand, these kids might just be called up for practice.....

If they do call up a few forwards, it will be intertesting to see who's waived and/or traded..Gotta think it's some combination of Hall,Orr,Krog and Ward...On D, I think the only candidate will be Kaspar...

And despite the words coming from Renney about an internal soultion, you can bet the Rangers are scrambling to find a 2nd C via the trade route....

Well when what you're doing isn't working--try something else. Hopefully someone sticks around. If they're not ready at least they'll have some NHL game experience to motivate them during the off season and if someone wants to take Hall's or Kasper's contracts off our hands--well and as a final note I thought Baranka should have made the team anyway.

Agree on the 1st part....Despite a good camp, baranka hadindeed been inconsistent at the AHL and was where he belonged for his development...Though not as physically gifted, Girardi is more steady and consistent right now...

I think the topic stands on it's own and has validity in the Brooks thread as well.

I would urge anyone to let me know if you think something gets merged and shouldn't have been. Just trying to keep this place tidy.

BY no means was that a criticism...You guys do a fine job and have never had a second guess.....Was just hoping you saw it the same way I did.. But seriously, those large "major issue" thread just get too hard for me to follow some times.. Probably just my AADD

I'm pulling for Girardi too. Although I have my ticket to the All Star game Monday -- I'll be a little bitter if he's not there but I'll take one for the team

if some players do come up, it better not be just for them to play 5 minutes and get sent down 2 games later.

Hopefully Renney realizes that the team as is isn't going to even out and play well consistantly if they haven't already. Maybe guys from Hartford don't turn the team around completely, but if he sees players who he thinks can help the Rangers, he better give them some icetime to prove it

Great to see that they are investigating the kids throughly.

It will be interesting to see what they can comeup with.

One option could be to move Shanahan to the left side, and try Callahan on the right side. I think you can call him a natrual RW, and beeing given his first real shot in the NHL on the left side is maybe not fair...

I am not sure how it will affect this team to have a RW that goes in first on the forecheck, and having a LW that stays back. It shouldn't be any big problems since our D's aren't especially integrigated in these aspects yet...

Straka-Nylander-Jagr
Shanahan-Cullen-Callahan
Prucha-Betts-Ward
Hollweg/Hossa-Krog-Ortmayer


I think playing with Callahan would benefit Cullen. Its not a great upgrade for Shanahan though. But Callahan and Cullen thinks the game much more alike then Cullen and Prucha.

Another option could be to try to get more much more speed into the lineup, and on the 3rd line. Like;

Straka-Nylander-Jagr
Prucha-Cullen-Shanahan
Korpikoski-Betts-Callahan
Hossa-Hollweg/Krog-Ward


The 3rd option would be Dubinsky;

Straka-Nylander-Jagr
Cullen-Dubinsky-Shanahan
Hossa-Betts-Ward
Prucha-Hollweg-Ortmayer

Bring up Dawes and Callahan. Move Straka to center. Waive Krog.

Jagr-Straka-Prucha
Dawes-Nylander-Shanahan
Callahan-Cullen-Ward/Hossa
Ortmeyer-Betts-Hollweg
Orr

Not pleased with moving Straka to center, but he cant be much worse defensively than Nylander, at least he moves his feet.

Would like Baranka or Girardi up on D as well, but short of waiving Orr (which I doubt they would do) or trading a D man, I dont think we would have room

Someone should re-name the title to: "Pack Hold Auditions for 3 minutes of playing time in Broadway".

Or just paying more lip service to appease the fans. Renney has done that on enough occassions. Typically, nothing happens.

I agree, its probably mostly a PR move.

However, I still have some faith that Renney is not AS incompetant as his predecessors, and may see infusing the team with youth as not just a way to help the future, but also as a way to actually increase the current success of the team. I think adding a Callahan, Dawes Giraridi and/or Baranka could only help things.

why is it other teams don't have a problem letting the kids play, but we do? sucks they can't give some of the young guys a shot.
