Can you really say he's riding it when it started when we acquired him, IIRC? He's been great in his role for us, and I ripped the **** out of the trade when it happened.

That slash was awful. I wish someone punched JT's face in for that. I like the guy a lot for a non-ranger, but that's a filthy move.

Agree. I lost all respect for him tonight. That was a ridiculously dirty play.

Henrik is 5 wins away from tying Richter for the team record and 1 shutout away from tying Giacomin's team record.

Yup. I don't think it is necessarily just Callahan that's killing that line, rather it is a combination of all 3. Richards has padded his stats with our PP and hasn't been great 5 on 5. Hagelin is having the worst season of his young career. Cally has been injured on and off, and his hustle and hard work will only take that line so far.

I'm not even picking on the Islanders. I am just pointing out a fact. Wouldn't it be better for the hockey experts to cast the Islanders as lovable losers instead, after all it is more realistic.
They've been an "improving team" with a "stockpile of young talent" for close to thirty years now. They are a joke of a franchise. If the NHL was like Euro soccer, they'd be in a C-league by now (so ECHL)

If you watch Carcillo, and did not know of his ridiculously doushy history, you would just look at his play and say it was a player filling his role very well.
Hey, I was unhappy when I heard the Rangers acquired him. It literally bothered me for days.

It's a real pickle because the 1st and 3rd lines are working so well that you can't help but kind of understand why AV leaves them together despite their problems.

One thing I'm sure of, or at least as sure as I can be about the future, is that adding Stewart to that line in place of Callahan would not fix it.

I was pleasantly surprised by Al Trautwig and Ron Duguay as announcers for the first minute of the game. Small sample size I know, but Trautwig especially was much better than John Gianone as PBP. Would much rather have him fill in for Sam during football season.

Sam didn’t miss a beat. He was honored. Came in. Put the mike on and was Sam. My God, how nice not to hear NBC.

That part I heard. Luckily I had them for the broadcast. JD and Sam fell into their old rhythm like Clyde Fraizer and Earl Monroe. Did they give Sam an award or was it just honoring him?

I know. It kills me how announcers and analysts bend over backwards with that phony stuff. They are supposedly professionals, yet they get wowed by the excitement of the Islanders go-for-it play, while ignoring the fact that they keep losing with serious deficencies in their play. So much for professionalism.
They should be saying how poorly the Islanders have handed out contracts, how poorly they have traded, and so on.

Haha, yeah like Chris Stewart, Mr. Inconsistency, is going to all of a sudden get Richards to start moving.

Come on. You don't remember there great GM, Milbury. Got rid of that liability, Chara. Probably one of the reasons NBC hired him.

He was ok, but got Pouliot and Nash mixed up early.

The words 'great' or 'expert' should never appear with 'Milbury' in the same sentence. Perhaps I should add 'competent' to that list.
