It's almost hockey season you fucking homo's .
Kravtsov and K’endre Miller are missing from the training camp roster. Is the Russian still signed with KHL?
Kravtsov is playing in the KHL and Miller is going to Wisconsin for at least 2y.
Hate when our prospects play in the KHL because all of those coaches give ice time to old re-treads. Miller needs at least 2 years of college and maybe one year in the AHL.
Woooooo Still more than three weeks to the start of "meaningful" games. This team is going to be middling at best this year so I'm tempering my enthusiasm until the season begins.
Where is Chuckles, still on summer break?
He left because all his go for it now trades ending up setting the organization back 5 years like I told the dumb fuck it would.
U mean rangers fan!! Ha ha ha
Rangers will struggle this season. Hopefully they'll use their young players and get them some experience. Starting to think none of the young D is ready and our D will be a bunch of old fogies minus skjei. Expect another bunch of trades at the deadline led by hayes, zucc, shatty and if a miracle happens and he realizes he's not winning the cup here hank and get multiple first round picks again and maybe a couple of young prospects. Don't mind this at all as this is the right way to build a team. Will have plenty of money after the season to buy a free agent or 2 also if were close enough to competing. will be very interested in seeing how kreids and buch do with the new coach and any of the young kids who actually make the team.
Actually, Hank would be perfect to break in Shesterkin. Split the load 50/50. Eventually, Hank becomes the backup. I think Hajek makes it. Lindgren gets called up by the break. Want to see Fontaine on the 4th line at some point this year. Maybe Howden a late year call up. It will be interesting to see what Gropp looks like. Our fan base has written him off.
There will definately be alot of competition for the 4th line. Nieves, Gropp, Meskanen, Lindqvist, Fontaine, Fast will be there. I wouldn't be surprised if they dump McLeod before the season. Howden and Hajek/Lindgren called up later in the year. The team could push for a WC but i think they come up short and trade Zucc and Hayes in Feb. DeAngelo could be on the outside looking in.
I here you dump with regards to Gropp. I was high on him when we got him but I haven't read any reports on him that are good. Most say he just never is in the right place at the right time. He's young so theres still time for him to turn it around and with his size I hope he does. Lets see what quinn can do with him
Saw a picture of him and it definitely looks like he added 10-15 pounds of muscle. He has a great wrist shot.
I think this team will be better with the dead wood moved last year, just need to cut Staal loose if they can't trade him. Should be spots on the roster for Chytil and Andersson. A healthy Shatt is back and I believe AV was responsible for the defensive ineptitude. They stunk as a unit, new coach with a sounder philosophy should lead to improvement, maybe another young player makes the roster here too. Hank is the guy who needs to step it up after a few lousy years in a row.
Hank didn't have lousy years. His shit team in front of him did. There have been guys wide open in front of the net for the past 3 years.
