    ok, the Rangers have been mostly awful this game, but Nash is a beast. Hugely impressed.

    They sucked in Boston, they sucked last night. And yes, Nash is freaking great, but I'm starting to wonder a few things:

    1. Dubinsky, Arty, Fedetenko and Prust brought more to the team last year than the box scores can show.

    2. Nash never won a playoff game in 10 years in Columbus. Maybe he's one of those guys...Richards was doing stupid shit like behind the back passses seemingly just to show Nash he can (he can't). Think he's a team cancer?

    It's been two games, and Nash not winning a playoff game in 10 years in Columbus is a function of him being in Columbus for 10 years. They have always been terrible and made the playoffs once as an 8th seed and got swept by the Wings who crushed everyone on their way to the SCF; not sure how that would reflect poorly on Nash. Add this to him barely playing any time overseas on account of injury, a one week training camp and needing to build chemistry from zero and there it is.

    Only Duby and Arty were part of the Nash deal so I don't think you can compare the loss of those 2 plus the other two who walked as UFA's. Erixon is a whiny entitled bitch-child who deserves to rot in Columbus hell, but a first round pick is a first round pick. Rangers are in an excellent spot even with those subtractions; you have enough grind with Asham, Callahan and Rupp.

    In other news, I'm glad the Flames are at least consistent. What a turd that was. Also very happy for Josh Harding - puts up a shutout after he gets diagnosed with MS. Good for him.

    i do not think that Richards (nor Nash) is any sort of team cancer. But WTF was Richards doing last night?? That behind the back shit was awful, and he did it twice with both instances resulted in turnovers.


    the biggest difference was how ready the Pens seemed last night. All 4 lines were there, and they seemed hungry.

    I forgot Vokoun signed with the Pens. I don't have much faith in Fleury but that is a pretty nasty duo in net... Vokoun is easily the best backup in the league.

    besides Luongo lol

    Pavelec is playing really well in a pretty tight game, which means he's due to give up a completely unforgivable stinker before the game is through.

    Pavelec looks like a lost puppy in the shootout...

    Toronto, you had like 18 minutes of PP time in that first period.

    Took my kids to the Coliseum today, GREAT effing seats. Will post pics when photobucket decides to work, but we were four rows from the ice, had 4 seats, 4 meal vouchers and a $10 Applebees gift card for $109. Almost makes up for having to see a game in that building.

    My son's first game...he wasn't very impressed.

    Will post action shots later, they're GREAT.

    I feel like that Hodgson trade could really pay off for the Sabres. He has been really solid in the first 2 games.

    Sure you can compare them...they had to get rid of more salary to accomodate Nash, and those two guys, especially Prust, would have been great to bring back, but impossible with the contracts they were offered.

    And tell us how you really feel about Erixon...lol.
