    Kravtsov hasn't been "Quinned" because he's a more well-rounded player coming into the league than any of the other young forwards the Rangers have. He backchecks with effort, he's a hound for the puck, he works well in the corners, is competent defensively etc. Quinn hasn't had to "Quinn" him because he already does most of the things Quinn likes and looks for.

    Right.

    This is the type of whining that makes people who constantly complain about Quinn hard to take seriously. There's whining when he coaches a player, and whining when he says he wants to let a player play his game.

    Then why not elevate him to the Panarin/Strome line if he brings all of those same "Jesper Fast" qualities that he said Blackwell does?

    He can't really think that Blackwell has more upside than Kravtsov.

    there's no logical answer to this. maybe he thinks Blackwell is the future?

    I think the logical explanation is that he is trying to make the playoffs and feels a veteran gives him a better chance. He's wrong. But that's his logic I assume.

    That's usually the sign of a mild concussion.

    He skated on his own the last 2(?) days - which is a good sign. Then they see how the head responds to the increase in activity.

    I figure we're gonna need him in the last 6 games....so the rest against Buff was a pretty good idea....or at least it worked out that way!

    It looked like Martin hit him and injected 6 shots of Patron. It was just a little weird because his head didn't really get hit directly or even indirectly. IMO, I still can't connect that hit with concussion. He didn't look like he had the wind knocked out either. Just strange.

    I thought I saw him bang his helmet off one of the metal stanchions between the glass on the hit.

    Although he has this team playing great against bad teams, I’m just not convinced he can coach us to continuous wins against good teams. Yes, a win here and a win there but we can’t string three wins in a row against those teams. Our schedule has helped us greatly these last two weeks. Next season we are ready to have an NHL coach step in and take us to the next level. It must happen
    The figure stands expressionless
    Impassive and alone
    Unmoved by this victory
    And the seeds of death he's sown
    Sworn to avenge
    Condemn to Hell
    Tempt not the blade
    All fear the Sentinel

    Dating back to last season...

    6-3 against Washington
    3-4-2 against Pitt
    2-5-2 against Boston
    5-4-1 against NYI

    Question. You use it as a slight against Quinn to say "Iím just not convinced he can coach us to continuous wins against good teams." Is it not a plus in favor of Quinn that they don't continuously lose against good teams?

    As all the 1st and 2nd year players get better and more experienced, those records against the teams ahead of us in the division will improve.

    This didn’t age well. String of wins against bad teams and lay an egg against the Islanders

    Also discounts the complete folding cheap card table act vs. the Canes last summer.
