very disciplined and quite a grinding game they play

:evil:

Georgiev: there is a reason you're a backup
you WERE hung out to dry on a bad change on the 1st goal
BUT
the MAN has to make that save.... every time

We'll see if Igor is the man in the long run

time to buckle up kids
the season is short and these teams will be UP YOUR ASS all year
deal with it and learn to dominate

some nice looks on the power play
let's get some consistency

There was a surprising name on the NHL waiver wire on Sunday afternoon when the New York Rangers waived defenseman Tony DeAngelo.

Why so surprising? Well, let’s count the ways.

First there is the fact defense is the clear Achilles Heel of this Rangers team, and they aren’t really in a position to potentially be giving away players that could help for nothing. For all of his flaws away from the puck (and there are many), he can be very good — and perhaps even elite — with it. DeAngelo is coming off of a 2019-20 campaign that saw him record more than 50 points and actually receive three Norris Trophy votes.

That alone makes this move surprising.

Then there is the fact that he is just six games into a two-year, $9 million contract that he signed back in October.

Not usually the type of player you expect to be on the waiver wire this soon into a season. But here we are.

[More: Your 2020-21 NHL on NBC TV Schedule]
There could be a number of factors at play here, from performance to off-ice.

When it comes to the former, DeAngelo has been bad so far this season and a lot of the mistakes are ending up in the back of the Rangers’ net. You also have to take into account that DeAngelo has been somewhat infamous for bringing a lot of negative attention to the Rangers due to his social media usage, which has included everything from fighting with fans over hockey and politics, to his opinions on the COVID-19 pandemic.

In short, he can be a headache, and one the Rangers have had to deal with “internally” before.

The questions now become whether or not another NHL team will claim him, and what the Rangers’ plan for him is if nobody does. It is pretty clear with this move that they are unhappy with something.

The most obvious team that might be a candidate right now is Pittsburgh. That is almost entirely due its current injury issues on defense where Brian Dumoulin, Marcus Pettersson, Mike Matheson, and Juuso Riikola are already sidelined, while Kris Letang exited Saturday’s game in the first period and did not return. But all of those players will be back at some point (some sooner than others), and the Penguins are not really in a position to take on another big contract that runs through next season. They also have an interim general manager at the moment and no one really knows what he can and can not do to the roster. So even that seems like an extreme long-shot at this point.

Either way, the Rangers are unhappy with something and it should be interesting to see where this goes over the next 24 hours.

^^^^
yeah Tony D' must really be some piece of work

Tampa gave up on him before he ever hit the ice (is he an anti-semite who found himself in FL?)
Arizona gave up on him after a decent cup of coffee for a goalie and a proven forward (Stepan)

:-k :-k

What the fuck did he do to the Goalie?
that exchange looked bad on the ice
but it happens

the guy is showing the potential to put up numbers like Park and maybe even Greschner
(he's not elite like Leetch)
he must be a real head case for the blueshirts to sign him on a heavy deal and then throw their hands up and say no mas'

Shesterkin looked more comfortable in net than he has since he was in that car accident last year
came out to play the puck as needed and seemed more at ease with his game

interesting how the defense has become tighter since 77 was jettisoned

It's revealing now, how much the team relied upon Chytil as a true center
they were a much more stable group on the top 6/9

kid was figuring it out and we were the beneficiaries

i hope it's not serious with the breadman
but when wheels go bad....

Artemi Panarin is likely to miss his second consecutive game with a lower-body injury. He skated on his own Monday, but did not participate in practice.

"Unless he comes in t and is chomping at the bit and takes a pregame skate, then the chances are zero he’ll play. If he comes back and feels really good and wants to skate in the morning, then we'll make a decision then. That will then won't necessarily mean he'll definitely play, but there will be a conversation."

“That’s a team coming off a two-week break. I realize they probably were pretty excited to get back to playing hockey, but that’s an unacceptable start,” alternate captain Chris Kreider said. "For the majority of the game they outhit us, outskated us, outworked us, won more battles. I mean, chances aside we got away from the things that we were doing well. They flat-out wanted it more. I mean, it’s unacceptable.”

Rangers forward Artemi Panarin missed his second straight game due to a lower-body injury he sustained against the Bruins last week. Rookie defenceman K’Andre Miller didn’t play for New York due to an upper-body injury sustained during practice

Zibanejad 14 GP 1 G 2 A -5 :shrug wonder if he is hurt. His last point was a helper on 2-4 :-

There will be hell to pay at the rink today

that was brutal to watch last night

I knew the devils would come out with a big push and I felt the rangers handled it
glad to see Kreider thinks it was an unacceptable performance, but I didn't see it as such

I thought the blueshirts battled and played good defense (torts) because the offense is offensive
at the moment... :mrgreen:

Again in "crunch time" (a term not regularly used to describe a hockey game) the kids folded
as if they were only holding a pair of deuces and they took no chances to go out and win the game

that will come

keep the perspective
these are mainly children playing who are being pushed around by men
it shows in every zone

just have to lace em up and play on

The struggling New York Rangers will be without defenceman Jacob Trouba for the next four to six weeks because of a broken thumb.

That’s a significant blow to an underachieving team with playoff aspirations that has lost four in a row.

“Unfortunately, we’re going to miss everything he brings from a physicality standpoint, from a compete standpoint, from what he brings to us from a leadership standpoint,” coach David Quinn said Wednesday. “He’ll be missed. But the good news is it’s not as serious as we originally thought and he’s going to be back sooner than later.”

MVP finalist Artemi Panarin is expected to to return Thursday against Philadelphia after missing the past two games with a lower-body injury. Panarin, who was injured last week in a game against Boston, leads the team with five goals, 10 assists and 15 points.

Quinn also expects defenceman K’Andre Miller to play after sitting out a loss Tuesday night to New Jersey with an upper-body injury. Jack Johnson was recently cleared to practice and isn't ready to play yet.

Trouba averaged over 22 minutes a game, so no one player will be able to make up for his absence.

“Everybody on that D corps has just got to play a little bit better,” Quinn said. “That’s all. It can’t be one guy. It’s got to be everybody.”

Centre Ryan Strome said the Rangers have “got to find a way.” They are 4-7-3 so far this season, in seventh place in the eight-team East Division, and Trouba's injury is yet another setback.

“It’s a tough loss,” top defenceman Adam Fox said. “Injuries are kind of part of the game, but you lose one of our veteran guys on the D corps, it hurts. I think it’s just an opportunity for guys to step up and kind of fill that role.”

New York already waived defenceman Tony DeAngelo and assigned him to the taxi squad after a postgame incident with another player. DeAngelo is not around the team, and management is trying to trade him.

never saw any replay of where he got hurt or how

---
Tony D must be a bigger asshole than it appears
no one has taken a flyer on this guy - even with NY willing to pay him to play someplace else
he may be done for the season - and then the team can probably try to teminate the contract altogether

but the silence of other GM's looking into a deal for him speaks volumes about his character

(the league shunned Don "the spoon" Murdoch in much the same way after he got into trouble)
