    This is why I like you and respect your presence on this board.

    The only thing I can *maybe* understand the whining *would be* regarding his game misconduct being for throwing the stick and possibly hitting the official. That it got changed in the postgame notes/stats would piss me off if this happened to the Devils. Throwing the stick and hitting the official would entail a 3-game suspension. I can understand if a Rangers fan has a gripe about that, but 99% out there are talking about only the "sucker punch" (which I'd argue it really wasn't).

    Per Andrew Gross (Record): Whether Gelinas or Severson is playing will be a game-time decision.

    Damn... I never looked at it that way but that almost kind of makes sense. 
  5. The Marty Night thread

    Hey redrum I just messaged you re: the tickets. EDIT: Nevermind; tickets are still available, y'all.
  6. Wideman Shoves Linesman: 20 GM Suspension?

    I disagree with the article. The way I see it: 1) The NHL was in the driver's seat. Wideman's "explanation" was not enough to satisfy them, so they had no choice but to play his bluff and suspend him.  2) Once he or the team admitted it was concussion-related, it benefits the league; they can come down hard on them and take a stand on what is expected concussion protocol. This would benefit the league and all other teams in the long run. I think the Flames and Wideman were in a bind, not the league.

    Per Rangers' Twitter: McDonagh's out tonight with a concussion. Bad timing for the Rangers.
  8. The Marty Night thread

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this. I have 2 tickets available for tonight's An Evening With Marty event.  I am asking for $120 each/$240 for the pair, or best offer as we get closer to the evening; the only disclaimer being I don't have them on my account to print, will be picking them up at the check-in area (and won't be getting there til 6:30 or so); so you'd have to meet me in person. And may be a few minutes late if they do in fact start at 6:30 as is advertised. I know people have a problem with STHs selling stuff at what appears like a profit, but everything comes at a cost. I traded these tickets to a friend for Devils-Flyers away tickets. He can no longer make this but I'm still using his Flyers tickets, so I'm selling these at $120 each to recoup the fair amount that I'll pay him for his Flyers tickets (in case you needed an explanation; selling STH rewards has become a controversial topic with non-STHs these days).

    Also Edmonton Oilers are a POS Mickey Mouse organization. Garbage. And now we're back where we were a few days ago.

    Dirty by Simmonds, but equally as dirty (but more subtle) by McDonaugh on the cross check to the head. Whatever Simmonds gets McDonaugh should also get.
  11. Wow, Kovalchuk was such a good player....     *cries*

    I just feel like we're all crazy though. No matter who the coach is, he continues to be valued, continues to be put out there and in important situations too. There must be a whole lot of something we fans are not seeing, but I cannot tell for the life of my what it is. I'd say this is one of the very few negatives of John Hynes' roster management, but DeBoer and the three-headed monster last year all did the same thing lol

    Can't stand him anymore. That 2-on-0 where he oversteps to offsides and then goes on to score the (non) goal, I was fuming. Stempniak didn't do anything tricky, no deke or stutter step, he was just walking into the zone and Gionta had to screw it up. That wasn't really what had me fuming; what it was was just knowing that Gionta would've shanked or sliced the shot if it WEREN'T offsides and a perfectly good play. That's the way things go with this guy on the ice. He has the heart of a champion but is just... not good.  My scenario proved correct once he was given a beautiful chance to score in the 3rd and instead of hitting it one-time into the open net, held onto it, and shot a 20 mph wrister directly into Reimer's glove. I've had enough of Gionta taking someone else's spot (even Matteau's; but Matteau can be taught to be more "okay" than Gionta is right now and he at least has a physical and speedy edge to his game), and Gelinas can sit for a while too as far as I'm concerned.

    Kinkaid played a hell of a game last night guys. He absolutely needed to, he hasn't put in a performance like that since last season and it's looking like he'll be facing the red-hot Oilers on Tuesday.

    Also, it goes unmentioned, I think, how good of a job Alain Nasreddine is doing. We forget how young and relatively unproven our defense is. Outside of Gelinas, no one really looks out of place at the NHL level. Helgeson came up and plugged right in, doesn't look out of place. Gragnani wasn't anything special but did his part. Moore and Schlemko have found their place (2 players who were let go by their former teams, the latter left unsigned for months). We knew we had "promising young" defensemen on paper, but truly making it work over the course of the season was going to be no easy task. He has our PK now in the top half of the league at #13 or something like that, after, keep in mind, how bad it seemed like it was for the first month. I'm actually curious where our PK would rank from mid-November to now, my guess is probably pretty high. I checked NHL.com but the chart function isn't working right now for PK%.
