RUMOR MILL

Wednesday - June 26th

Elliot Friedmman of Sportsnet, reports that the Avalanche weren't willing to include the 16th overall pick to the Rangers in exchange for Chris Kreider.

Wonder who else wasn't willing to include a first rounder for him. Part of the problem of course is his UFA status next year, and then the expansion draft after that.

Rangers Players Need To Step Up Or Be Sat Out
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ - December 7, 2008

The Rangers have shown some weakness as their 5 man unit forecheck hasn't been seen in over 8 periods. Only a shootout win over Atlantic division rival Penquins have saved the last 3 games from being a total disaster. The Habs game was another house of horrors in Montreal. The Calgary game is the one that really should bother the Rangers.

The Calgary game was a matchup against a hot Flames team. The Rangers could Just not finish all the little things that make teams awinner or a loser. On the first goal, Drury was on a line change(gliding to the bench as the play already had gone past center ice) and his replacement Sjostrom didn't get to pick up the wide open player on the opposite side of the net for an easy Iginla tap in goal. The blame goes to Drury on that as you can't make that change at that time because there isn't any chance that Sjostrom can jump on the ice and get back in the play as the Flames are skating over the Rangers blueline.

The second goal again was one of the leaders making a huge mistake. Gomez was flatfooted along the boards and tried to make a terrible pass up the middle that was picked off by Calgary that lead to an oddman rush and a 2 goal deficit that put the Rangers into a BAD situation. Gomez should have made the play off the boards and play it safe while giving the Rangers a chance to regroup or they could have made a change.

And of course, what would a Rangers loss be without giving up a shorthanded goal. On this play, it ended up with Girardi getting on the wrong side of the player in front that gave Calgary an easy 3rd goal.

The coach also needs to get his "A" game back. In this game, while already losing, the Rangers only played with 4 players(only 3 with a stick as Girardi's was broken)when 5 should have been out there. He needs to control the line changes better and get these lines set already. Don't change the lines every couple of games to get players going, have them watch from the pressbox if they don't play the way he wants.

This is not the time to panic, but it is time to either have ALL the players on board 100% or sit players and prove a point. Dawes has been waiting for a chance and will play the game the coach wants. Anisimov has been playing great down in Hartford and it might be time to see what he can do on the NHL level on a regular basis. If the GM wants to make a move as in a trade or a signing, do it already. If not, let the players know this is the team that has to get through the good and the bad times, and to also get back to all pulling the same way. With Keenan in the building, the Rangers need to go back to the mantra they had when he was Rangers coach, HEAVO-HO. That was for ALL players pulling the same way ALL the time.
