I would like to see Pock play in Tyutin's place. First off, Pock has been very solid when he has played. Second, if we have any intentions of re-signing Pock, this is not the time to sit him AGAIN just to let someone else play. He will not re-sign when he is treated this way.
i figured tyutin would miss some serious time with an mcl strain but this is terrible news, at least he does not need surgery. hopefully he will be able to fully recover with the proper amount of time off.
as for the defensive pairings
is what i expect to see
and for calling up a defensemen, we probably won't do something like that and it will come back to bite us, renney and sather have made very lackluster call ups from hartford all year, the only good one being girardi. id be shocked if we called someone up and they were given anytime
i mean isbister? we got callahan, dubinsky, dawes, korpido, etc but isbister, basically ahl fodder is here and he was playing in the final 2 minutes and in overtime yesterday, only the rangers
They need to bring someone else up to be the backup #7 guy.
True. My bad. I had a brain fart. So are we are all thinking if they call someone up its gonna be Baranka? From everything I have read over the last year or 2 on him I would be real excited to see him for a few games, but I also want Pock to get the ice time he hasn't gotten this year. I hope they don't call up Lampman, but if they do, it better be just as a safety net and they make him sit up in the press box
That means he's out for about the rest of the regular season. This is bad news. Pock should get his chances, but a call-up is not out of the question.
And if they do call someone up I think it should be Baranka. They might as well take the opportunity to see what this kid has. Besides, Renney hasn't played Pock consistently all year I can't see him doing it now
Defenseman Darius Kasparaitis was taken by ambulance to Hartford Hospital for observation after Wolf Pack practice yesterday, apparently suffering from shortness of breath, according to Bruce Berlet of the Hartford Courant.
In a phone call a few minutes ago, Berlet said Kasparaitis, who has been rehabbing from off-season abdominal surgery and hasn't been playing in games recently, left the ice and was on the bench "sobbing uncontrollably' and was consoled by coaches
Kasparaitis, 34, cleared waivers after appearing in 24 games for the Rangers, and has been in Hartford since Jan. 27. It was his second stint in the minors this season; the first was for the entire month of November for rehab. When he returned, he played 17 consecutive games for the Rangers before being re-assigned again.
WOW If thats true that is just terrible. i knew he wasn't fully healed from his injurys. I really hope he can make it back to the NHL next season. This season is lost for him, he needs to just take it easy & heal up and get strong enough to re-hab.
