The group of Rangers players attending informal practices seems to be growing everyday as Rick Carpinello at Rangers Report says the group swelled to 22 players today...
Ryan Callahan, Carl Hagelin, Marc Staal, Derrick Brassard, Chris Kreider, John Moore, Dylan McIlrath, Ryan Bourque, Stu Bickel, Rick Nash, Taylor Pyatt, Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi, Michael Del Zotto, Mats Zuccarello, Anton Stralman, Derek Dorsett, Brian Boyle, Brad Richards, Justin Falk, Aaron Johnson, Marek Hrivik and Dominic Moore.
...love seeing young guys like McIlrath, Bourque and Hrivik attending these practices. Still mystified as to why Miller hasn't participated yet.
...i really don't think there's a spot on the roster for Bourque, but he's a guy I'd like to see get a look in the NHL at some point this season. He'd be a nice fourth line player.
...no Stepan? Sorry I had to.
Here's video Carp took of Staal discussing his recovery from the eye injury he suffered last year...
Marc Staal, after scrimmage: "Best I've felt in a couple years...I've adapted to it (his eye injury)... my brain kinda re-wired itself."— Steve Zipay (@stevezipay) September 5, 2013
More Staal: "Sensitivity to light almost gone." Said there was nothing he couldn't do. "All clear." Just has to monitor any pressure in eye— Steve Zipay (@stevezipay) September 5, 2013
Can anyone explain why Carl Hagelin is the lowest paid player on the Rangers roster? He doesn't seem the worst of the bunch.
Both Kristo and Lindberg should be on the team if Cally and Hags are injured... and they should be on the same line... already can see some chemistry there.
Josh Nichols scores to make it 2-1 Carolina... Standouts today are definitely Kristo and who but OSCAR LINDBERG
@TheNYRBlog still coming off the high of Shark week.
@genetics73 he's not. he got a nice raise up to 2.25M this summer.
are you seeing this? how so?
Not a URL, his friend back home was streaming it for us. I won't be getting any of the other games :( but it was cool to see. They should broadcast these games
@KevinDeLury @lennynyr @AG_Blue @FREE LINDBERG I got a live carolina link from my friend a school who lives down there. The link was terrible. But, i will tell you guys two things. A) Danny Kristo IS the next Mac trade... didnt see much of Thomas, but this kid was nothing but impressive and talented.
B)Oscar Lindberg should make the team... He set people up, he scored, and he could have had a hatty he got robbed a couple of times.
They were the two best players by a mile. Standouts
