    Rangers Re-Call Tanner Glass and Steven Kampfer

    Yea I wouldn't be so fast to get on the team without including the coach in this conversation. Idgaf that AV was pissed. If his message is getting lost on the team for whatever reason than it's up to him and his staff to find another way. As for Lundqvist, there was a point in time where he was shitting the bed so bad, fans wanted Rantaa to take his spot. I highly doubt his teammates were giving him an earful as he does with them. I'm not arguing with the last point he made because he's right, but this kind of shit happens. It's on everyone. From the players to the coaches.

    And for what it's worth, this team is playing AV style hockey so if you're tired of them playing "soft" you know where to look.

    I did watch the game. Their feet weren't moving until the second period and even then, if not for a lucky bounce on the first goal, they might get run out of the arena.

    The Rangers are a team that gives up? That's nonsense. They come out flat from time to time and there are times where they aren't particularly sharp, but they're not a team that quits.

    No, not every team plays the same schedule. Yes, every team has bad games because of their schedule.

    Every team plays 82 games. The makeup of those games in regards to frequency, distance, the opponents, etc. is not consistent.

    AV has openly stated that the schedule was problematic.

    I might not watch another game now just for the fact that we will have to listen to MSG's bs telling us how this is needed and Glass will add a missing element.
    F off

Plus he can PK, which they lost some of when Fast went down.
    I love Glasser but he can't help the PK if he's cooling his heels in the sin bin or the locker room for five..

    The schedule is a reason for the inconsistency, not an excuse. Look how well they played in early February when the schedule was normal vs. how they played in December and the end of February.
    Pittsburgh won 4-3 after going down 3-0.

    3 of 4 Rangers have been terrible. Every team has injuries, tough travel, etc this time of year. Doesn't mean the Rangers are destined for a first round exit.... but they need to be playing better hockey in April then they are now.

Oh, the weather is too cold or too hot? Oh, it's raining. Oh, it's snowing. C'mon. Play for 60 mins. with heart, grit, determination from within. The King said it all the other nite; paraphrasing him; " We need the will to do it. Have to find the will. Tactics aside, we need to have the mindset ". These guys are soft, inconsistent, pass up scoring opportunities by not shooting, and in many instances are not ready from the first puck drop. Make all the excuses you want. I watched the Pittsburgh/Buffalo game last nite and the NYR should have done the same.
    I may be mistaken, but isn't this their first really rough patch they have had all season? They certainly look down, but this is new. They have finally hit that cold patch everyone was saying they would. Goals are down for this team. They are allowed this rough patch. They are also kinda banged up. Let a not forget Zib missed a game with some phantom upper body injury that I don't recall being discussed. He looks like shit. Stepan looks slower than ever. Kreider while being the hot hand is still playing like he's wounded. Grabner is out. Pirri has become Stepans look alike, without the defensive aspect. Klein is out. Girardi is out. Fast is out. What exactly are you expecting right now? Dominance? This team doesn't have to hit everything in sight. They ARE going to be pushed around. THEY WILL ALWAYS BE PUSHED AROUND! The difference is they will have to be smart enough to take or avoid the cheap stuff, and not retaliate. They need to play smart. Don't get me wrong. They should play more physical than they have recently. But I'm not expecting or wanting Tanner fuckin god damn Glass to do any stupid shit like trying to amp up the opposition.

    This league has moved past the Tanner Glass' of the world. These other pests can atleast skate, win a face off , pot the occasional goal, or kill a penalty. Tanner Glass doesn't bring any of that. He brings a reputation of shitty player who can barely fight. He will be in the box before he can stand up for his teammates.

    Buch was technically an emergency call up for the Grabner injury. Once Grabner comes back, they can send Buch down and it won't count as one of their 4 call ups.

    However, with the way Buch is playing, I'm not sure he should be sent back, but with AV off his rocker these days, anything is possible.

WTH do the players do while the coaches are meeting with them? What do the coaches do while meeting with each other? I'm asking all the experts who seem to be privy to everything NYR. Me? Just an old time Ranger fan that is saddened by how this group plays game in, game out. Surprisingly, they seem to be headed for the play-offs. How? One could only wonder.
    They have skill. They know how to win. The problem is, are the coaches able to adapt? Doesn't seem like it.

    Yes. I'd bet the Rangers have a winning record against the 15 teams currently in a playoff spot.

    The Rangers have the easiest travel schedule in the league, miles wise.

    Is Tanner part of The Cars? Because he's just what we needed.

    That fight didn't get them going, of course that's what the players are going to say.

    Within about 5 minutes of the fight, Drouin slashed Skjei behind the play, Vesey got run into the boards, and Kampfer got crosschecked into the boards. That fight had 0 impact on the game.

    How could the goaltender who just pitched a shutout in a 0-0 game say that anything got the team going? This is beyond stupid.

    to be fair, it wasn't like a no offense 0-0 game. both teams had their fair share of chances. It was just two goalies playing at their best.

    Both goalies were very good but neither had to make many second saves or deal with many deflections and traffic in front.

    I don't mean to discredit Raanta's performance, because he was very good, but that's about as easy of a 38-save shutout as you'll ever see. What'd he have, 3 or 4 really good saves? He saw everything and I can only think of 1 good save he had to make on a rebound chance. Same thing for Vasilevsky.

    This was a game where a couple of different bounces - kind of like the Canadiens game - give each team 3 goals.

    I feel like that's more the Rangers style though.

    They don't bang away for dirty goals as much as they try to use their speed, move the puck well and take high percentage shots.

    of course it's nice to see both styles be utilized when needed but it wasn't like both goalies weren't stopping really good scoring chances.

    Yes and no, the Rangers are a transition offense, but they don't get nearly enough credit for scoring goals in tight. Have Kreider and Nash scored more than 5 goals, combined, from more than 5 feet away?

    I'm not calling it stupid. He was sticking up for a teammate, good on him. Miller said the same thing and it was just as meaningless. The team wasn't inspired by Glass' fight.
