Well actually, I am NOT biased on Jamie at all. I don't really know what to make of him at this point. I do feel however that it is shortsighted and obtuse to write off a player as young as Jamie.
For example: Pleae see Martin St. Louis. Or rather, WAIVER'd Martin St. Louis. He was considered a bust as well. It just takes some players a little longer to find thier stride. Now, I have no idea if Jamie ever will, but I will not condem him, at this point, of, as you LOVE to remind us, "sucking".
It seems as though you pounce on any oppertunity to put Lundmark down. It really takes all objectivity out of your posts.
because he knows why he came to New York, and that was to check top lines, not center a top line. Everybody in the league would agree that Jagr is a top line player. So, put those together, and you would come up with the idea that Jagr and Holik would be better off playing on separate lines (better for the Rangers that is).
what has holik done in his two years here to for his point of view to be taken seriously? what has lundmark done in his two years here to deserve to play with jagr?
oh yeah thats right lundmark has two goals but its his linemates.
wow you pick and chose your spots... that shows weakness in character.. will you show your face when lundmark scores again???? nah i would expect you to show up a week later pointing out how lundmark hasnt scored since
This is ridiculous.
Everyone has to give Lundy a break.
Look what he's been exposed to since coming up.
Overpaid primadonnas (not counting Leetchie), losing seasons, terrible coaching, and even worse management.
Knowing "...I could win a Stanley Cup with that kind of payroll..." Sather, he'll be dealt in a package to move up in the draft or another top 10 pick.
Lundmark is not the problem.
And Holik has done plenty. At least he's accountable."...I shouldn't be the one playing with Jagr... and "...we play the fundamentally worst game in hockey...". Great quote. It's about time someone said something like that. That was great of him to say. He's got brass ones. Sounds like something you want said from the Captain.
Talk about accountability. Messier threatens to retire if traded. That helps the future of the Rangers. Messier should have been packaged with Hlavac and dealt.
And people think Lundmark is dissapointing.
The problem is half of the teams in NHL make the playoffs and the Rangers have now gone SEVEN, SEVEN, SEVEN years without making the playoffs.
By the way does anyone think Dolan will reduce tix prices?
My bet is...No way.
The problem is at the top.
And who the hell is going to come in and coach the Rangers next year?
If there is a next year...
Maybe we should be asking that question, instead of Why listen to Holik? What line Lundamrk belongs on? or if Lundamrk even belongs on the Rangers?
Let him center Jagr, it's not like we have anythig to lose. Sink or swim Jamie! At this point I'm really beginning to think he'll sink like a rock, but what the heck. Give him a shot. Worst case scenario he'll probably put up some secondary assists next to Jagr so at least his stats will look better in our attempt to trade him to move up in the draft.
