    Right, enough of this winning malarkey. Let's get back to losing ways.

    On a separate note, what's going on with AdA? Is he being a prick in practice or something of that nature? I can't get my head around why he isn't rotated with the rest of them.

    Sometimes Einstein gets his numbers mixed up (he's got bigger priorities than hockey), but you get the gist.

    The Vegas Squirrels have got the over/under at 1.5 wins for this trip.

    He is terrible in his own zone and has to earn his way back in

    His 2 games was certainly no worse than what the other rabble has served up (bar Pionk), never mind that keeping him in the pressbox is a total waste of time for everyone involved.

    Standing room - 20 bucks.
    Seat in the corner - 35 bucks.
    Maybe I'll go. Last time I went to Hawks/Rags - Anisimov scored a fucking hat trick.

    Sure, Debrincat is the shiny new kid on the block that has the fans excited. But Patrick Kane is tearing it up again. It is possible for Skjei or Pionk to have a good game and still have Kane beat one of them making a play.

    This road trip is a nice bonding opp for the coaches and players. Should do the team well and they should get at least 1 win in the next two. Hawks and Kings are not playoff teams, IMV.

    Go man, only visit. Rangers win 2 in a row, tonight. Treat yourself, grab the $35 seat if it is not too high up. Maybe you'll find a better seat, when you get there. Scout the kids, hang with hipsters and throw a few down.

    I disagree. I think he was worse than the others defensively. Quinn thinks so too apparently.

    Well,
    a) he's not on the roster for his defensive ability and he actually produced in the 2 games he played and
    b) I'm not sure he's out purely for hockey reasons.
    For example, Shattenkirk is a total bombscare in his own zone and has lost his place on the PP to Pionk. His only redeeming factor is quarterbacking the powerplay and he's not even doing that now. No reason not to rotate the 2.
    Furthermore, keeping AdA in the pressbox means the Rangers aren't learning anything about what they have in AdA, he's not getting any better by sitting there and he's not building any trade value sitting there. So what's the fucking point? They obviously think there's something there, otherwise they would have just waived him.
    It doesn't make sense, unless there are other factors like him not putting out in training, acting like a prick or whatever it might be.

    I think it is as simple as they see something in him to hold onto him, but they need to see improvement in practices as well as someone in the lineup who needs a break or whose play drops off to open up a spot. Nothing should be handed out just because he is a young player.

    If he isn't up for the challenge of earning his way back in, then the Rangers should cut their losses.

    I agree it shouldn't be handed to him.
    I just don't understand the decision based on what we've seen on the ice so far, and certainly not from an organization viewpoint.
    The current status quo isn't doing anyone any good.
