I think that's obvious. They're not about to call Kaspar back up.

I really hope Rozie is ok. He and Tyutin have been our only consistent D-men this year.

On the bright side, it does give Pock an opportunity to prove that he belongs on the ice over Malik. If he plays well and Malik continues to play like a redwood, then it might force Renney's hand when Rozie is ready to come back.

I dont remember the play when he got hurt Maybe I wasnt paying attention well enough. Oh well, looks like they are going to run with 5 d-men because Pock needs to man the press box just incase get hectic up there...

For the love of god, bench Malik and call up Baranka.

Tyutin
Ward
Rachunek
Pock
Girardi
Baranka

Why do I have a feeling we'd be a lot better off with that top 6?

I'd rather see Baranka out there, even if he makes some rookie mistakes. Those I can handle. But boneheaded gaffes made by a veteran NHL defenseman, those are just inexcusable.

Rozsival has been pretty steady at times, but he too is guilty of just some dumb decisions. I just honestly want to see what we look like on defense without both Rozsival and Malik in the lineup, even if its just for one game.

"Naturally, this leaves the door open for Thomas Pock to return to the lineup, and again, Tom Renney was asked if it’s detrimental to have a young skater sit out too long. “Only if he allows it to be,” Renney said. “He has to stay buoyant."



Sometimes Renney really annoys me

Where did the ankle thing start up anyway? On the broadcast yesterday they said it was a slight knee sprain.

What scares me is the phrase "day to day."

Usually that translates to: "We have no idea how serious it is. He could be out for a game or he could be out for a month."

I assumed it was day to day.

The Rangers never formally released that phrase.

I really do not understand Renney's attitude towards Pock. He's been better than Malik has. Seems to me, that if he can waive Kasper, he certainly can afford to do so to Malik. Unlless off course, this has something to do with his nationality and him being close with Jagr. I know that people will back this with Prucha arguments, but he has been the only countryman of Jagr's to have been held to some kind of standard of accountability (a much different standard than most of the team's other players, actually). There may be something to Malik seeming to have a golden pass becuase Renney does not want to upset Jagr. Maybe I am looking into it too much, but Renney's seeming refusal to reward Pock for good play would have to come at either Jagr's or Rachunek's expense, and he shows no inclination of doing so.

The disturbing part is that this happens year after year in this organization. It was bad enough that Bozo and Kasper played so many consecutive games with Pock sitting but now with those 2 gone this is still no way to get him in the lineup. I know it's been said before but many other NHL organizations would have the likes of Dawes, Pock, Callahan, Baranka getting much more NHL experience in a season like this than Renney & Co. have shown so far.

Having 3 inexperianced defenseman in the lineup along with an inconsistant Rachunek and an inconsistant Ward is a legit concern though...

True but these young players are never going to get better if they don't play, especially in high pressure situations, that's when a kid's mettle is tested

And does having Roszival risk further injury by coming back too soon help the team? I'd rather see him come back healthy--even if it means sitting out the next game. Losing him for a bunch of games would be a serious blow to any playoff hopes.

I don't want to risk losing Rozsival either. I was the only one on these boards saying the guy was good. My point is having 3 "kids" on the backline is a legit concern right now. 1 out of the other 3 vets (tyutin and he is a vet for lack of a better word) has played consistant hockey..
