last night the Rangers realized Rachuneck sucks and they are trading him to Nashville for a 7th rounder and Lampman will skate in Rosies spot until he better
Lampan will be the temp 7 dman.
Knowing this team, the move has more to do with Pock being out of position for Sundin's break/gw goal then it does with clearing some vetran trash...Not like giving Pock some regular time might help him smooth out his game or anything..nah, here in NY you get 2 weeks off, fill in one game and if you make a mistake it means you're just not a good fit.
I think he is going to be the 7th D-man personally, but heres hoping this means that Malik is going to be out. If Lampman does actually play, it will probably be in place of Pock due to his bad pass that led to the GWG, I personally dont think he should sit for that, but what do I know.
unless they placed Rozy on IR, i think you are right...
lol yeah I didn't think I was crazy. I just remember some of the news articles before the Rangers called up Girardi saying that in order to bring up another kid from Hartford somone would have to be waived. No mention anywhere if Roszival being put in the IR as of yet. I would think they would be announced before bringing someone up.
I think we'd have to go through some growing pains. Lampman's safer at this point. I'd love to see Ivan come up, but with his style of play, which could be risky at times (standing guys up at the blueline), we could suffer through some growing pains, which at this point, I don't think management team would be willing to do. Lampman's like your career AHLer who comes up and fills in the #6 spot in case of injury. Not saying I agree with this, just trying to explain my thoughts on from where they're coming at this.
I think Girardi's play has been pretty good, he makes the smart play up the boards instead of the risky blind pass that the Rangers D have seem embrace this season. I like him alot and want to see him for the rest of the season.
What did people think of Girardi's play? Didn't hear too much criticism or issues with him on the radio broadcast.
I'm watching Rangers Hockey Night, and Dave Maloney says that he has been very solid, making good outlet passes, head on a swivel.. but thats been only for 2 games, lets see.. i agree, he's been solid so far, no complaints..
