Sauer's pass was a perfect example of his latent offensive potential, something I discussed in another thread recently. He's already the best on our team at knowing when to pinch--not necessarily the best at converting pinches into chances, but the best at making the proper decision. As he continues to gain confidence and experience, you'll see it more and more from the kid.
He's never going to be a big offensive guy in the league, but I'd wager he becomes a perennial 5 goal, 20 assist guy. Assuming he stays healthy.
just awful, and calling the green boarding against stepan a "good hit."
You know, when you listen to some commentators from other teams it really gives you an idea of why fans of other teams really don't seem to know much about hockey.
They just showed the replay 2 more times...wtf was Green thinking you could see Stepan was bracing himself for contact...Stepan slowed down so much it's almost like Green ran into him, one of the strangest hits I've ever seen. And I ran it frame by frame the elbow never contacts Green
Ok, knock on wood here.... But how come we always overachieve when we miss players of importance? Gabby when he was out earlier this season, now... Staal right now... Dang!
It's the curse of the teams I root for. The Rangers, Mets and Jets have always been better in the underdog role, and when facing adversity. This iteration of the Rangers is no different. Oh, missing our best offensive forward, our best defenseman? Of course we'll play our best hockey! It's when everyone is healthy and in good form that we suck.
It's a curse, I swear. Makes victories that much sweeter, but also fewer.
