And the second year defenseman rewarded his boss by putting on a defensive clinic against Ilya Kovalchuk last night...
Oh, I knew I was going to hear it, Kevin.... and deservedly so! LOL. Actually, it was more of a thread than a blog! Hey, I love my Rangers and I get information from many sources, but I hold your blog in very high esteem... and I mean it!
As I wrote on another blog last evening, "Given the way Ryan McDonagh played, you could have traded him alone for Nash and demanded change back. What a game." McDonagh with all of the other assets demanded by the CBJs... you can kiss my butt. No way. No how. Now, I'm disappointed they did nothing to correct the PP... and that will bite them in the ass, no doubt about it. However, as a fan, I am willing to take whatever may come our way -- because this season has been a huge surprise -- learn from the experience and improve the team over the summer. Meanwhile, let's enjoy the ride.
@TheNYRBlog Alot of fans killed Sather for years, but got to give him a lot of credit for what he's done since.
@TheNYRBlog Still can't believe Sather got that deal done. Gomez and his salary for McDonagh? Highway fn robbery.
@DanW Leetch and then some. This kid have the smarts and vision of Leetch but he is a better skater and plays a lot tougher then Leetch. Don't get me wrong, I loved brian leetch and still do. A classier player you will never meet but McDonaugh is going to be really special.And can you believe it, they got him for Gomez. While I used to trash Sather, this trade had made up for a lot of his blunders.
@TheNYRBlog Yes and no... The NHL has obscure names and divisions that even us self-proclaimed quasi-experts can't fully get a handle on...
@TheNYRBlog We do know, but not with a head-scratch. Point is NHL should shore up the names, at least of the divisions. Tough to remember.
