Assistant Coach

Assistant Coach (7/11)



  1. That's what I would have done, but it looks like the puck went right through him to get to the Flyer Gardner in front. I guess I am saying at least he was there. Willman just fvckin watched.
  2. Tierney and Willman, what the fvck was that coverage. Way too many forwards defending below the goal line. fvck at least Hatakka was in a lane. Vitek has been on his game tonight too.
  3. I am not impressed with Cal Foote this game. I like his size, but I don't think he has NHL level footspeed or he hasn't shown it this game.
  4. I think he has to tear up the AHL or I don't think he's brought back.
  5. I am definitely in the camp of McLeod is easily one of the better ones in the league in that his coach is not afraid to throw him into situations where other 4C's would struggle or flounder. I would even be okay with McLeod as a 3rd line C if we didn't have Haula or if we felt that Haula had a really bad year last season. I can't imagine he would carry a 3rd line by any stretch, but you can at least rely on him to win draws and not crater the line defensively. I think nowadays you need to have a 3C who is super reliably defensively, but also has enough skill to play with a top 6 or top 9 guy.
  6. If I recall correctly, there are some Russians names that the player will anglicize a little to make it easier on everyone, but it's just the way the name is spelled in Russian versus English. Just different phonetic representations of trying to get as close to the Russian pronunciation as possible. I'm sure the player kind of gets to decide what the best version that gets put on the jerseys.
  7. I think of Nemec, Clarke, and Foote, I thought that Nemec and Foote looked the best. Clarke was on my had both good and iffy moments list. Noticed that Foote was being used as the net front presence in that first unit in the same way that Bastian would show up last year. Throw a 6'4" guy in front of Shesterkin and tell him to try and tip pucks like Kreider. I think we'll see him on the second unit PP.
  8. Yeah, the D we are bringing kind of offset that area a little. It's the pro group minus Dougie and Siegs, I believe. EDIT: Yeah, we'll get to see Wotherspoon-Nemec, but they were AHL partners a lot of last year. Them in; Dougie and Siegs sit, but mostly an NHL competent d corps.
  9. Yikes. I'm still hoping he figures out the defensive side of the puck as I usually like to root for those undersized dmen to figure it out. The other guys to watch this year are the guys we sent over to the Sharks. I want to see how Okhotiyuk, Zetterlund, and Muk look.
  10. It's just bombastic stuff to try to upset Rags fans on Twitter. He also calls them Fugheyzees, which is an entirely made up smear/word that he uses for the team and its fanbase. I don't envision any Rangers stars in the near future being asked about how the word "Fugheyzee" makes them feel. Despite getting big, I don't feel like they've really changed it up much over the years and they just speak their minds. They've become pretty good interviewers too. Show obviously has a lot of influence such as with the whole Babcock saga but it's still just former pros talking hockey with former and current pros. I tend to zone out when they start talking non-hockey or crying about politics or golf, but I've watched a few of the sandbaggers and it's the most entertaining I've ever seen golf presented.
  11. Every day is a good day to put the Rangers into the dirt again.
  12. I'm really excited to see Luke Hughes continue to develop. He's going to be paired with Hammy or Marino through most of the year and I legitimately believe that spending a good amount of time with Marino will do wonders for Luke on the d-side of the puck in terms of his development.
  13. He's looking like he's going to make the team and maybe even push for a top 6 spot alongside Cozens or Thompson. Made a slick pass to Skinner behind the back and Skinner blasted one home on a one-timer PPG. The Sabres are set to have the season we had last year. If Levi is ready to take 40-50 starts and post a .930+ save percentage through those games. Look out. I read a headline that said that they are pairing Dahlin and newcomer Connor Clifton as a top pairing. He's like Colin Miller, but hittier. It's the kind of free agent addition that doesn't scream anything crazy on paper, but can't wait to see.
  14. I heard some of the Chiclets guys (Whit and Biz) were predicting that the Rags might miss playoffs this year if they don't get big contributions from the young duo of Kakko and Lafreniere. If they get hit with a bunch of key injuries such as Shesterkin or to any of those key guys such as Panarin, Zib, or Fox, they could get into some trouble. Whit predicted that they might struggle and be a wildcard and are not contenders if Kakko and Laf don't take a step in development this year or if the PP gets off to a rocky start. Biz straight up predicted that they could miss playoffs and regress. Can't wait. Also re: Chiclets, it was great to see Hischier out of his shell a little bit and it was still nice to hear about Switzerland. I think it was nice that it was in-person. Agree that it's a little disappointing that it's so old and not from more recent, but still a welcome surprise to be sure.
  15. Jack Hughes has been working on his faceoffs. Looked strong on the faceoff dot in MTL. Glad to see that getting tuned up
