Those snow piles were the second most effective goaltending weapon I have seen used ina SCF, right behind JS Giguère`s comically oversized pads!Speaking of which, Gort does need to post some pics of his new gear. Don`t tease us!
Enjoy it!
Richards will most likely get bought out. He has a little bit left in the tank but no one will want him at his current price. If a player on a big contract can't be moved, you have no choice. Sucks for Brad though -- he's had some good years.I think they definitely resign Brass, Zucc, Moore, and give Kreider a 2.5MM bridge deal for a few seasons. That's the name of the game for young, promising RFAs.I also thing they bring back Pouliot for 1 year, probably resign Boyle as...
Don't get me wrong, I think Zucc amd Hagelin have been outstanding this series, especially Zucc. Kreider has had his ups and downs but he has been dangerous. The problem I was trying to highlight is that these guys have all showed up and really hurt LA with their speed, but none of them are top-class finishers. So they have been generating opportunities, but they have had issues burying them.Guys like Zucc and Hagelin and Kreider are valuable to a team due to their speed....
This series has been a nightmare for New York. They haven't been outplayed, aside from period 3 of game 1, and still find themselves down 3-0. If I was a Rangers fan, I would be cursing my team's luck at the moment, But since I don't have a dog in this fight, I feel that I have an easier time breaking down this series and what has gone wrong for the NYR. Overall I think they have played well but the one thing they really lack is finish. They have generated opportunities...
Rangers really needed to win that one. I felt that if they wanted to take it the distance they would have to split in LA and that was a golden opportunity. They started playing tentatively after taking the two goal lead. That would work against the Habs but two goal deficits for the Kings seem to be barely a hiccup. They were also totally outclassed in the third period. I don't know if it was the Kings forecheck, the Rangers playing tenative, or if NY had been worn down by...
He was a bit of a character when he coached, but that was during the 70s when there were lots of interesting types behind the bench.As the years wore on, he just became an out of touch, senile old fart whose position as a sacred cow of Canadian broadcasting allowed him to get away with numerous racist and xenophobic outburts that would have resulted in his immediate termination if he worked anywhere else.He's a disgrace, as is most of the CBC telecast. There's a reason my...
If I was a coach there's no way I could take that guy seriously or treat him with any respect. He's just too much of a sycophantic dweeb.
NBC is terrible, as is the CBC. Learn french and watch games on RDS -- it's the only way to escape the buffonery of NBC and the jingoism of CBC.
Unless the Kings go into this series massively overconfident (which they might), I think they should win it in 5 or 6.The Rangers are a lot better than most fans gave them credit for, but they match up poorly against the Kings, especially since LA seems to have no issues scoring goals and coming back from multi-goal deficits. NYR's game has often been timely goals and a reliance on Lundquist and the defensive system to close games out. I am not sure how many 1-0 or 2-1...
