Lundqvist joined by d-men McDonagh, Staal, Del Zotto, John Moore, Stralman, Falk, Johnson and Bickel— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) September 3, 2013
Staal apparently was wearing a tinted visor during practice.
And here's a great pic of Rick Nash shooting on Henrik Lundqvist from today's informal practice that officially pumped me up for the season (via Rangers Instagram)...
...if the above image doesn't have you out of your mind excited for the season, just hand in your Rangers jersey.
...no Miller on Traverse roster and not at informals? Wonder if that wrist is still bothering him.
Amen, Danielle. We'll see, Tony. AV had a lot of talent in Vancouver and didn't do much with it in the overall scheme of things.
Me too Rich. We'll see, but I've said it for several years. Until they get a dman that actually moves bodies out in front of Hank with nastiness and a dman that can run a pp and has a shot that can actually reach the net, the results will be similar. No one is afraid to play the Rangers, it's too easy in these areas. Losing a Clowe-like type player ain't gonna help. Most importantly, if Hank sees the same old, he will leave. Shame on Sather for having years to fix two glaring weaknesses and now risks losing the best goaltender. Awful.
What color is the tint on Staals visor? Just black... or did he actually go yellow, blue, green or some other strange color
I love hockey and I love my Rangers. Perhaps it is following the team for most of my 58 years, but I hardly feel excited about the upcoming season. They come off a disappointing season and did virtually nothing to make the team better in the offseason. What am I missing?
@Rich Buser with the amount of money being tossed at players this offseason, the best move to make was not to make a move and just re-sign your own. They're a better team now than they were at the end of last season. They now have 4 true lines after overhauling the bottom half of the roster. They didn't have a ton of money to throw around with the cap going down for this season too.
@Rich Buser I hear you. This team lacks grit, but you gotta be excited about a new coaching staff and a new system that puts more of a focus on offense.
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG I don't think he is. But even if he was, you'd think as a young guy trying to crack the roster he'd be at informals.
