Again, I think it has a lot to do with wanting a center.

It could also have to do with Dubinsky playing well recently and Callahan being in a bit of a slump

Immonen has already had his chance and hasn't shown he's a 2nd line center, IMO. Rather give Dawes or Cally a chance to show us that they are at least 2nd line wings.
can straka even take draws with his shoulder? he cant shoot right now how can he win a faceoff? thats probably the only reason nylader is back with jagr right now

Actually, I found most of it amusing...last time I met up with Belle and Sassy was at another Ranger site. Sassy, if you remember had a huge mancrush on Fleury. And, then there was Egan, who was another trip...anyway, I just felt like tweaking you...

You mean you guys actually watch hockey games. Maybe I should try that.

To receive a comment like that from someone with your opinions is about as high a compliment as I could ever hope to receive here.

The next time Isbister finishes a play instead of having the puck roll off his stick after he almost circles around a defenseman you should alert the media.

There's a reason he's become a failure at the NHL level after such high hopes for him. Maybe all of the other GMs don't have a clue either. Good thing you're here to straighten them out.

He hustles for a game (along with every other person in a Rangers jersey) and people act like he's now worth something. When a team dominates like that no one looks bad. The proof is that you can't name a guy who didn't look good that game.

He is a poster boy for failed expectations.

Isbister might not have much finish to his game, but the guy plays out there. He's fast, he hits, he certainly has a somewhat decent shot but nothing spectacular, and he tries hard. I mean, I don't understand how you can say he brings NOTHING to the table.

That's just an ignorant comment.

I like Dubinsky being paired up with Straka. You want someone as defensively responsibly as Straka with Dubinsky for his first outing. Hopefully takes out some of the kid's nerves by having confidence that he'll be backed up properly if he makes a mistake. It also allows Marty to play a role in which his shoulder isnt as taxed.

These are the lines i suggessted yesterday in the liffiton/dubinsky called up thread

im very excited on these lines

there is some good size on that second line with dubinsky and isbister to make room for straka

i like avery with nylander and jagr, avery goes to the net, works to boards, makes good passes, and plays the game the way it should be

we have a good chance tommorrow with these lines

I just think that 2nd line will need Avery's help since it is Dubinsky's first game in the NHL and Straka's 2nd since the injury. Avery is the type of guy to get any line going with his hard work. The 1st line can do fine with just Isbister ...
I would much rather switch isbister and prucha... prucha's been HOT on the RW, plus i dont see why he doesnt deserve 2nd line minutes

yet on the other hand, the COP line is reunited. YAY!!

With Straka's sore shoulder and Dubi's first game, I'm fairly confident when I say the COP line will be getting the same, if not more, ice time as Straka's.

Excited to see Dubinsky maybe playing on the 2nd line. Making my hopefully yearly appearance at MSG on tuesday against Ottawa and hoping he'll be around. One of my favorite prospects.

Excited to see the Rangers taking a look at a 20 year old center who has gotten better every year and fills a need.

May not be Callahan, but I think that's kind of splitting hairs. We're still taking a look at a top prospect who isn't even old enough to go out for a post game beer.

Looking forward to see what Dubinsky is going to do, but at the same time i'm worried if he doesn't jump right play an above average period/shift that Renney will just demote him to the 4th line.

It is exciting...

surprised Liffiton was called up for sure, and a little surprised about Dubi too since the kid's only looked like an AHLer off and on for the past couple months. Nonetheless, getting a shot playing with Straka helps a youngster. Isbister on the right though...where's Callahan?

And for the person who asked if Isbister and Dubi played on the same line in Hartford...the answer,for the most part, is no.

I'm back off to what I'm doing in China.

Was wondering where you've been.

You, SOS, TrueBlue.

Seems like we're a few people short this month.

Not that Isbister hasn't played well but you can't really say Immonen has had his chance. He has had very limited ice time and has given decent production considering that. Without his faceoff win against St. Louis we might be done right now. I'm not convinced Immonen's AHL numbers really represent his capabilities because he probably feels (rightly so) that he has nothing left to prove there after last season.

The lines look OK, though you would think Prucha would get 2nd line minutes, but he plays well with the COP line, and will make up time on the pp. Maybe Renney feels that playing Isbister against his old team will motivate him, plus Brad should be smart enough to realize that if he dosen't showcase himself, it's off to the AHL

I sure hope that COP line gets more meaningful minutes and not just on the penalty kill. Prucha has been flying and Cullen has played his best hockey of the season of late. That line is going to be the difference tomorrow night, mark my words!

It's gonna be a tough game in their rink, but as long as Jagr brings it like he did last game, we'll be alright. It would be so great to get this win...discipline boys! Stay out of the box! We're bound to score some if we get 7 power plays like we did the other night.

Please show me where I said he doesn't try hard. You can't. I questioned his results. I cannot help that you either don't understand this or choose to ignore it.

Isbister might have some value as a checker but he has virtually no value as an offensive contributor. If you believe otherwise you should be reprimanding yourself for your ignorant beliefs instead of worrying about whether or not I ever watch games or whether or not I harbor weird opinions.

Forget Isbister's career. Watch a single game and the rest of his career no longer applies. That is your belief. And then you criticize my abilities to understand what I see.

He looked good in a game where the Rangers were perhaps more dominant than any other Rangers team I can remember. I hope he averages a point a game the rest of the way. I just don't think he can perform at half that level.

Prucha should have Isbister's spot and Isbister should have Prucha's spot.

Why would you remove Prucha from the line he's had a very good amount of success with?

What's your logic on that?

Why fix something that isn't broken?
