unless dubinsky is getting serious minutes, i think this is a BAD thing. developmentally these kids need minutes. Liffiton is a good choice, dont agree w/ Dubinsky though. i just dont think hes ready yet.

Let me clear up what I meant...
If Mara is injured, Liffiton plays...
What I mean is that I hope Mara is not injured for the game so the call up is not necessary.

Got ya, but i think Liffiton plays anyway! Mara is banged up, don't know how badly, but I'd think Renney doesn't want to put someone out there who can't pinch the boards if its the shoulder.

Liffiton is a tough kid! I like this!

Dubinsky is also a fine player...I'd think we're looking at something like...

Isbister-Nylander-Jagr
Straka-Dubinsky-Prucha
Avery-Cullen-Ortmeyer
Hollweg-Betts-Orr

Roszival-Malik
Pock-Girardi
Rachunek-Liffiton

The question is, does Dubinsky play the wing or center?

I'm guessing they do something along the lines of moving Straka back up with Jagr and Nylander for the most part, and have Dubinsky center the second line...or hell, realistically, the third line with Cullen centering the 2nd because "he's been playing well".

In any case, even 3rd line minutes would be good for Dubinsky.

Switch Avery and Prucha and that would be my lineup.

Hmmm, thought it would have been Callahan and Baranka...

But I could see the Rangers thinking...Isbister has been very good the past few games and his size will be used to replace Hossa as a wing on the top two lines...The thinking is also probably to put Straka back at LW which leaves an opening at C....The Rangers (nor I) are not high on Immo and probably are looking for a more complete player in DUbinsky----Have heard that he has put in a couple of really good all around games...Wouldn't be surprised if Dubinsky C's a line (not sure if you want to call it a 2nd line) with two of Isbister, Straka and Avery...

As for Liffiton over Baranaka..I have never been a huge fan of Barankla's inconsitencies (why I always liked Girardi better), but I thought he was playing nicley and the better of the two..

A lot of people on here have yelled and screamed for youth to be brought up, lets see how they play in a big game.

So I guess that's what Dubinsky was doing yesterday after the game at the Garden. Walking along the sidewalks. As I stated after I got home from the game today.

Truthfully for all I know it may not have been Jessiman. The only wolfpack players that I seen were Dubinsky, Immonen, Bourett, Callahan, Isbister, Dawes. The other 5 people around me said it was Jessiman but I wasn't to sure of it. Maybe it was Liffiton. Maybe it was Jessiman. But whatever the reason theirs our call-ups.

I hope the Straka-Nylander-Jagr line is not reunited. Like the different dimensions each line has when Straka or Nylander is split from Jagr. Think it would make the team too dependent on that line like it was for much of the season...

See this is where I have my differences in opinion...Isbister is a hardworker...than can't score. He should be challenging the likes of Ortmeyer and Hollweg for a spot, not playing on the first line.

He had 6 goals in 58 games in his last NHL season...10 goals the previous season...the problem is he CAN'T score, not that he can.

Let's hope Liffiton isn't as shellshocked as last time he was up here. I forget when it was, but I don't think he played too well, and didn't see the ice for a good portion of the game.

Not unless the Rangers have developed precognitive powers. The reason Dubinsky got the call-up was because Hossa was injured...which of course happened at the game he was attending. Alternatively he may have planned the whole thing, and specifically cut the rut in the ice hoping one of the Rangers forwards would catch it.

He didn't get much of a chance but he looked out of place back then. Hopefully this time will be better.

yea, thing is the defence has been pretty awful (in terms of sheer skill/quality of players) all year. this is bad yeah, but its not like its MUCH worse than Ozo, Kaspar, et al..

they don't look that different, and they're two pretty big (6'3"/6'6")




also i am actually quite glad they didn't call up Jessiman.. he needs his time in Hartford, he needs his confidence, and his minutes..

I, also thought it would be Cally and Baranka.

I'm very interested in seeing Dubi get some mintues, though.

Can't wait until Thursday!!

This is why I yelled and scremed for them to be kept down in Hartford, concentraing on their development and getting them ready to play on the NHL level either late this year or next..Hopefully we will see that these guys have been prepared to contribute..(like Girardi, even Immo and the older Isbister)

Earned first NHL recall from NY Rangers on Apr. 11 and made NHL debut that night vs. NY Islanders… Skated in one game with the Rangers, registering two penalty minutes.
http://www.nyrangers.com/team/player...p?playerid=297

recalled both times to play against the Islanders..


also, Dubinsky doesn't seem to have a number yet, whereas Liffiton (on the Roster on the Rangers site) is wearing #55. Dubinsky wears #19 in Hartford, but Betts has that here.. If i remember correctly he wore #54 in preseason..

I think size and agressiveness is part of the reason for both callups. Dubinsky I think might actually fit into a more prototypical 3rd-4th line forward right now than say Immonen. Liffiton plays if Mara can't and I don't see anything else in that. As for Dubinsky's ice time he's had 58 games in Hartford of probably 18-20 minutes a night--I don't see where this is going to factor negatively into his growth--this is more likely to be seen by Brandon as a reward for a steadily improving season. He should be going back to Hartford in any case by the time the puck drops for the playoffs. With Liffiton if he does play I hope that we see more than just a physical side to his game--and hopefully he can keep up with the pace.

Interestingly enough, it was also against the Islanders back on April 4th last year. Liffiton only had 8:42 of ice time in the game.

I had a bit of a different impression from you though, I thought he played okay for his first NHL game. Didn't see him overawed at all, though he didn't see a lot of time.
