Did you miss that monster hit O'Gara laid? He also had an eye opening zone entery that lead to a scoring chance.

I didn't notice Claesson at all.... not sure how he gets put much higher than anybody after one preseason game


When you're not an offensive defenseman, not being noticed is a compliment.


Yeah give me 20 minutes of steady, unremarkable play, over a big hit any day of the week.

Sure, but O'Gara was his partner, and I noticed him.... in a good way. He was steady AND noticeable.... Cleasson just didn't mess up.

As much as everyone rags on Staal... he was noticeable last night. Noteworthy.... Claesson... did he touch the puck? Was he anywhere near the play? I didn't see him.

It's good that he wasn't bad, sure.... not sure how that moves him up the depth chart is all.

The biggest problem last season was how easy other teams got to the front of the net and got quality second chances off of rebounds. The coaches and defensemen had better watch video of what the Caps did to Vegas in the Finals. They mauled anyone who got near their net with the puck.

I don't care who plays on Opening Night, so long as they commit physically to protecting the front of the net and winning battles down low.

Last season? You mean since AV became the coach I hope. Maybe that first season where the team seemed to fall back on Torts style they cleared a bit but it's been missing for years.

Coach is talking the talk, supposedly upset at the no response to the hit on Nieves. The acquisition of McQuaid was also hopefully a sign he recognizes the need for battlers. Just about everything he says is the opposite of Toller Vigneault, so I'm expecting a different attitude once the personnel gets adapted to his style of play.

We'll see how long the culture changes, but McQuaid will be a guy who sets the example.

Isn't this the point of McLeod? He was on the bench.

B.S. you don't get one guy to police for the rest of the team. It's about team toughness, and sticking up for one another.

Fast DID get on the guy who hit Boo, almost immediately, but.... it's Fast.... Maybe by season's end, he nuts up and drops the gloves. It wouldn't surprise me, he's a good soldier who does what he's told.

Not sure who else was on the ice for the hit, but they should've heard it from DQ

I mean I agree with you Rob, but, if it's about team toughness, there's no point in having McLeod on the bench, let alone the roster.

The coach didn’t like his teams response. I’d guess McLeod is aware of that now. If McLeod wants to sit on his hands get someone else, or better yet three or four.

Don't be naive. That's exactly why they got McLeod. They didn't get him because of his skating and nifty stickhandling. The guy adds nothing offensively or defensively. he was brought here to stand up for his team. End of story. After his time here even a blind man can conclude he isn't going to do his job. Goodbye, get someone, or better yet someone's else.

Of course they got him to play in Hartford and pay him $750,000, sure Rob. Smart teams all do stuff like that. But then in your world Fast Might get into a fight. McLeod was brought in and resigned for a reason.and it wasn’t to play all season in Hartford at $750,000 per. Especially when he doesn’t do his job when he has a Ranger jersey on. Get rid of him entirely bring in someone else.

Yeah, his name is Beleskey.... They gave him a contract because he knows Quinn. They signed him because there are spots open in the lineup, and he is a vet that adds to the competition for those spots... they didn't sign him with the intention of playing in Hartford, but there's no harm if he did play there.... Holland makes 6 figures too, does that mean he makes the team?

You're the one making the claim that we can get rid of him entirely so the burden is on you to provide some sort of substantiation for that claim.

There are some ways that I know of but they aren't really applicable in this situation. Just asking to see if you knew of a way I didn't - apparently not.

Waive him, and when he clears waivers, buy him out. Maybe by some miracle another team claims him.

B.S. you don't get one guy to police for the rest of the team. It's about team toughness, and sticking up for one another.

Fast DID get on the guy who hit Boo, almost immediately, but.... it's Fast.... Maybe by season's end, he nuts up and drops the gloves. It wouldn't surprise me, he's a good soldier who does what he's told.

Not sure who else was on the ice for the hit, but they should've heard it from DQ




Don't be naive. That's exactly why they got McLeod. They didn't get him because of his skating and nifty stickhandling. The guy adds nothing offensively or defensively. he was brought here to stand up for his team. End of story. After his time here even a blind man can conclude he isn't going to do his job. Goodbye, get someone, or better yet someone's else.
Its about the Guys who are on the Ice sticking up for each other that's what its about.. Not looking at the bench for someofne else to handle there business




I totally agree, but that hasn’t been the past strategy and it remains to be seen the future strategy. But McLeod is not here for his penalty killing skill. He either needs a reminder of his job and he does it or he needs a bus ticket because he is good for nothing else. He doesn’t have to leap over the boards in the middle of a scrum to respond, but he does need to respond at some point in time especially when other teammates don’t. Rangers need a attitude adjustment in that department.

It took AV a full season to wipe out all the good things from Torts.

It will take Quinn at least that long to weed out the pussy attitude which AV instilled, and implement his own ways.

His team being Hartford, yeah





Of course they got him to play in Hartford and pay him $750,000, sure Rob. Smart teams all do stuff like that. But then in your world Fast Might get into a fight. McLeod was brought in and resigned for a reason.and it wasn’t to play all season in Hartford at $750,000 per. Especially when he doesn’t do his job when he has a Ranger jersey on. Get rid of him entirely bring in someone else.


Please explain how we "get rid of him entirely" because i'm very interested in that unfortunately there's a CBA.



So read it and figure it out.


You're the one making the claim that we can get rid of him entirely so the burden is on you to provide some sort of substantiation for that claim.

There are some ways that I know of but they aren't really applicable in this situation. Just asking to see if you knew of a way I didn't - apparently not.






Waive him, and when he clears waivers, buy him out. Maybe by some miracle another team claims him.


Buyout period does not begin until June 15, which doesn't make much sense considering his contract ends 15 days after that.

Waive him send him to Hartford and put him in charge of after game snacks. When he tires of that Europe might look pretty good. The point is you can get rid of him if both parties make it work. If they signed him to stand up for his teammates and provide the same leadership in that dept. that goal scorers, assist guys, penalty killer guys and faceoff guys ect. ect. do in theirs then it was a bad signing. He wasn’t particularly effective last season. If they signed him to contribute as a fourth liner banging and crashing then it was even dumber, he was even worse at trying to play the game. Without spending two hours analyzing who was available when he was resigned I have no doubt better was available to fulfill either roles.

I don't know, Vancouver and the Islanders signed every fourth liner they could find to 4 year contracts. The Islanders replaced Tavares by signing 5 guys that added up to his point total.

I hear you but Vancouver went with expensive ones. If the pilses signed 5 guys to replace Tavares then they also had to dump 4 other guys, only so many spaces. . The Rangers would be better off with Belesky in the lineup, even though he's more money since cap room shouldn't be a issue. McLeod doesn't even help Hartford.

I agree. I have no use for McLeod. But the Islanders signed or traded for a bunch of 4th liners. Maybe a couple can play up, but not many.

I don’t recall them signing anyone good enough to play on the top two lines. but in their case how high is the bar.
