I'd rather the b2b be where it is than be between two home games. Not fair to be at home 2 days and boom back on the road. I also feel like games on b2b nights is likely to be a spilt. Rather we have an away game as one of those.

But it shouldn't be that way at all.

Agree. NIce right now. Roll with it. But he can unravel as a player. Good to keep him on his toes and wanting back into the lineup. I know everyones first inclination is to sit Dorsett once Kreider comes back but i would leave him in and sit Carcillo for a game. Dorsett has been hitting everything that moves and playing a very hard game. Sure, hes taken some penalties but dont forget he is approaching mid-season form after the long injury and he can score too. Hes just as fresh as Carcillo and you need fresh legs now.

The fact of the matter is that Carcillo proved to be more effective than Fast and Miller combined so logic states that he should get the call in Game 1 of this series at the very least.

The only problem with Carcillo is that he can be a major idiot. For whatever reason we haven't seen that version so.far. Until he becomes an idiot he should not leave the lineup.

Agreed, then we can rotate Dorsett and Carcillo when needed, keeping them both fresh and hungry to do what they do best.

I agree with this, and when Kreider comes back perhaps its a moot point.

But hes been the only net positive, in my opinion, out of the 3 guys that can fill that 12th spot.

Perhaps he has matured. Hes spent a lot of time in the pressbox over the past couple of season - a good time to reflect on his idiocy and make some change...something Avery would never do.

But Avery would score at a higher rate in the playoffs than our former captain Cally.

I want the Richards line playing sheltered even strength minutes, so if Carcillo is going to take him out anywhere, lets hope its the parking lot.

I've always suspected that a lot of people who didn't like Avery--didn't like him not just because of his persona on the ice but because of his non conformity not only as a player but as an individual person off the ice. He wasn't someone they would think was a good example for young children to follow as if others for instance Chris Drury (who had a blah personality but was Captain America) were. Avery didn't strike them as respectable--an ordinary type who would marry a just as respectable woman, have two or three children with her, buy a house in the suburbs--kind of like Martin Brodeur--go to church every Sunday and never have any run ins with the law (for playing music too loud or some such ****) and live a pretty much ho hum existence outside of the rink.

To me Avery was a player who stirred a lot of turds on the ice--he'd **** other teams off so much that he'd sometimes almost singlehandedly would turn a game into a real war and the thing was when that happened the Rangers almost always won. He made a lot of games a little bit more than just ho hum affairs. He was also a pretty good player--though towards the end of his career his defensive play kind of went south. I always thought though that his remarks on hockey and life in general were rather refreshing considering the often blasé cliches you'd generally get from the rest of the team. A player actually implying that there might be other things in life as important to him as hockey--WTF!

My thoughts, FWIW: Our 2nd and 3rd lines are playing very very well, our defense overall is better than theirs, so is our goalie. Low scoring games favour NY Rangers. Therefor I expect us to win. In 6 games.

So you are saying people only like players from the 1950s?

More like there's something to be said for the unpredictability/entertainment factor when it comes to watching hockey.

They are not morons. They are marketing geniuses maximizing advertising profit. Is this right for hockey? No. Is it good for NBC bottom line and shareholders? You betcha!!

I am not speaking for others who didn't like Avery, but I hated him for having real abilities and not maximizing them. He seemed more concerned with being a character than a player. His first year here he was a real player and a great asset.

The other thing I could not stand about him was his perpetually causing offsides. Never understood why he could not get that concept down.
