The New York Rangers Blog has a special treat for you tonight at 9PM. Myself and the boys will be hosting an "NHL Trade Deadline Preview" Spreecast with special guest Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period and we're hoping for more. You can also access the Spreecast by clicking here.
O well fuck me backwards.... the Pittsburgh Penguins add Iginla to their superstar roster.. when is this season over :( can we give them the cup yet... How the fuck do they have enough cap for this shit
Honestly after watching bits of this segment, if any of you guys are listening get a better guy then this Kings guy... He doesnt even know hockey, unless he was on acid when he said Nash for Voynov... He acted like all these kings players were untouchable... Rob Scuderi, there is no way he moves, okay Gaborik and Boyle for Scuderi and Justin Williams and the Kings would jump at that probably...
As for the questions definitely could have been better, maybe next time feed some from people listening or watching. I would have loved to hear what someone thought about making a run for vane, since Buffalo is shopping him. I mean a lot of these questions we already know the answer too... St. Louis isnt moving so get off of it...
As for t he deadline... I will tell you one team that got a lot better tonight... Bruins picked up Iginla for essentially nothing...
@TheNYRBlog Your silence spoke volumes though.
@TheNYRBlog Kevin weird cause i heard u the last time u logged on. It was working
@TheNYRBlog missed you Kevin but really enjoyed the Spreecast.
Derek Stepan is the #1 C for the Rangers now and in the future. And Torts is not gonna get to boom a Richards buyout if Slats and ownership want to boom him.
Torts really needs his training camps, and makes better use of them than most. He didn't get one this year.
My take is still that the season is in total disarray due to the lockout.
With a full training camp and entire first half of the season under their belt, this team by this time would have had time to jell and the kids develop.
Most on this blog are completely overreacting. Trade Gaborik - Fire Torts - buyout Richards... just stop it already.
MDZ is not the problem. It's Richards and Gabby not being able to play together, etc. MDZ has improved.
@TheNYRBlog can we get Iginla? I love that guy.
@TheNYRBlog way to make your spree cast right after Passover ends so I can't watch
@TheNYRBlog I agree don't make trade there not winning anyway when u have Boyle playing u don't want to win
How ironic is it that the Pens sign Murray as extra BEEF in front of their goal and Fleury goes down last night from a "so called" hit by Gionta. I love it.
Douglas Murray traded to Pens for a 2nd this year and a conditional 2nd/3rd next year. Pretty steep price IMO.
Heyyy so the Penguins have acquired Doug Murray. A day after getting Brenden Morrow. We needa get working.
@Medvjed004 top 3 lines:
Kunits Crosby Iginla
Neal Malkin Dupuis
Morrow Sutter Glass
Thats absurd... pending injuries they are the best team in the east, and the flyers wont be in the playoffs to knock them out
@slapshot13j no he went to the Penguins...wrong info
Vanek, I honestly think Gaborik Boyle and Thomas or borque plus a second rounder and they throw back hecht could get it done
@JoeBrickl LOL! Thanks.
@11AV31 I was using a new laptop and didn't setup the mic properly. Oh well.
@PhilipJWalsh Still don't like that excuse in regard to this season. Every team is in the same boat, when it comes down to it the Rangers players should've been prepared.
@PhilipJWalsh Agreed. I think we should just stand pat & let all the youngsters develop, and give the vets time to get out of their respective "funks".
I thing Gaborik & Richards both looked better last night...
@ElizabethCoop Looks like Boston.
@MichaelMcNamara Tune in tonight, I'm certain that will come up.
@JoshKaye I'm sure Sather and Co. are diligently working the phone lines to see what they can do. Pens have set the bar tho, no doubt about it.
@NoticeOtis yea i switched above... even better...
@TheNYRBlog ah Gotch Ya, well when it worked was clear. sounded good. Need win tomm night vs playoff team
@DuPont_Snotty cause they were on different lines.
@TheNYRBlog ugh! Like they need more offense lol.
@TheNYRBlog Aint that the truth tomm huge cause sat house of horrors. Henrik and Biron brutal in Mont.. Maybe call up Talbot. LOL
@11AV31 Next biggest game of the year.
@cb1 @TheWrage Or we could make solid moves to improve our team for the remainder of this year as well as the future so we can consistently score goals and not hate this team every time we're unable to keep up in a game or fall behind so quickly
