BREAKING: The #NYR have recalled JT Miller and Brandon Mashinter from @ctwhale, & reassign Benn Ferriero to the Whale
— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) February 4, 2013
...looks like the Rangers were reading my "Mashinter Watch." While his call-up doesn't surprise me, the Miller one does. Just reading recent tweets from Rangers website beat writer Jim Cerny, I thought organization felt he wasn't ready, but his play with the Whale this season cannot be ignored.
...i've said it numerous times on the blog, Miller's two-way game is perfect for Torts' system. He proved with the Whale he can play with men, but the NHL is a whole other animal. Really excited to see him play tomorrow night.
...got to give big props to Sather for addressing the depth issues of this team by adding grinding players with "jam" to their game. A characteristic sorely lacking with the Rangers this season.
