Pock...

I thought he played well out there. Thoughts on his game? Considering how rusty the guy has to be, I was pretty happy with his play.

Honestly besides our big line, I thought our best players on the ice where Prucha, Callahan, Pock, and Immonen to be honest.

Maybe the kids just seem hungrier to me

Yes very true. He played pretty damn well. As always, he was on top of his game.

Pock, while not playing the world's GREATEST game, at least was better than Ozo out there tonight.

come on now.. lets be just a TINY BIT objective.. prucha, callahan and immo didn't really do anything, and you can argue pock did not have a good game if you want to nitpick

imo there is a huge gap between those that did good tonight and those that were just ok.. and the ones i felt that were good were shanny, straka, jagr, roszy and hossa to a lesser extent.. prucha did look good on the PP, and so did rachunek so i guess i'll mention them but still a big gap

You sure about scoring chances? How many goals was Ozolinsh directly responsible for this season? It is not like he was bad this season, especially compared to other defensemen on the team.

I thought Pock was ok tonight. Nothing more. Then again I don't think anyone on defense really stood out in the defensive zone tonight but most played solid.

i agree to an extent.. what can you expect when he's sat dormant for such a long period of time.. i think if he gets into the line up on a consistent basis we will be happy w/. his overall play.. i have no problem playing him at this point..

As seemingly always when it comes to Pock, I (for whatever reason) may be biased. Or maybe too many Jonnie Walker Blue's tonight). However, I thought that he had a decent game. He did what he does best. He almost always gets his shots off from the point. He knows when to use the slapper or when to use the wrister. I think that he could be the best option (aside from possibly Cullen) that can be used from the point. IMO, I would not rush Malik back.

I was at the game sitting behind the Ranger net for th 1st and 3rd. Pock was pretty poor in the first with a couple bad turnovers in his own zone. He played a bit better in the 3rd.

Immonen had a great game defensively. Made two or three really nice defensive plays on Islander rushes. Callahan was decent when he was out there, but he needs to add alot of strength before he's ready.

the kid, well he is 25.. but he played alright. I mean he was playing with Roszival who isnt exactly a defensive genious either, but for the most part i think he did a good job. The point is, he a much better skater then Malik and i wouldn't be suprised if Malik's injury is "prolonged". You can't judge him on his first game back. We gotta give him a chance, it's only fair. I think he has a lot to offer to this team, just pairing him with Roszival may not be the best thing.

Pock was ok. He had a couple of miscues that didn't result in anything, pressure, scoring chance, etc. One game does not make a career. What I would like to see is for him to be given a 20 game tryout, playing regular minutes and see what he can do. Potential is great, but unless you can channel that potential into real, solid performances on the ice it has zero value. Pock has an opportunity, the door is slightly ajar. He needs to push it open and step in and make a statement and create a spot.

was at the game and thought Pock was alright, I think he needs a few games to get his bearings but I like having someone who is not afraid to shoot the puck and can get it on net. Malik needs to sit a few more games.

I was there, too..

I thought Pock played OK, nothing special, but I didnt expect a #1 Defensemen. He is not afraid to shoot, and as he grows into a regular role (i wish), he should contribute more offensively than any of our other blueliners.

I was impressed with Callahan's speed and hustle. I'd like to see a lot more of him. I suggest that a line of Prucha, Callahan and Cullen would be the fastest line we've had in years, and should be tried.

Interesting suggestion.

Very "outside the box" thinking. I don't think Renney does too much of that.

What sticks out in my mind the most with Pock is he got the puck on net twice. Even if its a wrister, its on net.

His defensive game will come around.

Pock played well. I think however, he is not a guy who will stick. I believe he is a great trade piece at best

a great trade piece? what exactly do you think his value is?

if anything his value is probably less than what it should be given how the rangers treat him

I understand that but I think the most valuable thing he can become for us is a decent trade chip

I think Pock is a player but he wasn't the problem last night..

As a change of pace I'll take it at a minimum he was as good as Malik..
