Found March 14, 2014 on Blue Seat Blogs:
While we were gone for the server upgrade, Alain Vigneault switched up his lines a bit. He moved Chris Kreider to the second line with Brad Richards and Martin St. Louis, and moved Carl Hagelin to the top line with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash. This essentially gives the Rangers two top lines (1 and 1a, as you can’t really call either one a “second” line). It’s something we had been wanting for a while ’round these parts, as the Richards/MSL combo needed a finisher and net presence (Kreider), and the Stepan/Nash combo needed someone to drive puck possession a bit more effectively (Hagelin). Naturally those lines didn’t score last night, but the lines are probably going to get another look tonight in Winnipeg. I’d like to see Raphael Diaz get a go over the severely struggling Anton Stralman, but it doesn’t sound like that’s going to happen.

Things that happened while we were gone: Ryan Haggerty signing

While we were away for the server upgrade, the Rangers made a few moves that we couldn’t post about. Naturally, the news came about two hours after we shut it down, so I’d like to thank the Rangers for their impeccable timing. I kindly ask that from now on, you wait until we are no longer in a server upgrade to announce news*. *-Considering this will likely be our first and only...

Rick Nash needs to step up

Has anyone seen this man? At some stage, Rick Nash needs to be a consistent game changing force because that’s what he is being paid to be. At some stage, people will begin to question his ability to be motivated game in, game out. At some stage if things continue the way they are, the media criticism – so far, relatively tame on Nash – will crank up. Even with Marty St Louis’...

Ryan Callahan: I wanted to stay with the Rangers

Former Rangers captain Ryan Callahan says he never thought he would get traded. “Yeah, I wanted to stay there. I thought I was going to. The whole time in my head I never thought about getting traded or leaving at free agency time,” Callahan said to New York’s WFAN Radio on Wednesday. “My goal was to get something done with New York. Unfortunately, it’s the part of the...

Time for Martin St. Louis to step up in New York

Time for Martin St. Louis to step up in New YorkSo here we are, four games into the Martin St. Louis era in New York, and the Rangers are still spinning their tires. The offensive outburst has yet to come, the power play surge has yet to be seen, and the wins, the points, the very progress of this team is as inconsistent as ever. If St. Louis does in fact make this team better, as...

Hagelin’s hat trick gives Rangers big win in Winnipeg

Everybody happy! (AP Photo/The Canadian Press, John Woods) Carl Hagelin notched his first career hat trick last night, giving the Rangers the much-needed offensive wake up call en route to a 4-2 victory over Winnipeg. Things weren’t so happy in the first period, when the Rangers squandered an early Hagelin goal by surrendering two quick ones to the Jets. But the Rangers persevered...

Rangers Signing: Haggerty signs with Rangers

Six of his goals were game winners, all of which were career highs for Haggerty in his...

Thursday Musings: buyouts, contracts, pipe dreams, & more

Moving on up? Before we jump into this week’s musings, I first want to thank everyone for their patience as our site’s server was recently upgraded and we were unable to post anything for the last 24 hours. As Dave stated yesterday, hopefully this upgrade will help the site run a little smoother and faster. Back to business. Below are this week’s random thoughts on the state...

Hagelin nets hat trick as Rangers take down Jets

This was a night on which the Rangers returned to wearing blue collars rather than the white gloves they had sported in losing dreary affairs this week in Carolina and Minnesota. This was a night on which they dug in against a much bigger and stronger team, sacrificing their bodies throughout an essential 4-2 victory over the Jets for which coach Alain Vigneault broke up the struggling...

Martin St. Louis off to slow start with New York Rangers

The New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning swapped captains last week on NHL trade deadline day. The deal sent last season’s Art Ross winner, Martin St. Louis, to the New York Rangers for Ryan Callahan, a first-round pick in…Read more →The post Martin St. Louis off to slow start with New York Rangers appeared first on The Hockey Daily.

If you're a model and you allow a radio host to stick a golf tee in your ass you should be precluded from suing said host

Model Liz Dickson is suing Playboy & Kevin Klein, co-host of the Playboy Morning Show, seeking $500,000 and "punitive damages" for battery and negligence. Why?

Liz Dickson golf stunt video shows why she is suing Playboy

Model suing Playboy after golf tee in butt stunt goes wrong

No you did not read that headline wrong. A model has filed a lawsuit against Playboy Enterprises and the co-host of a Playboy show after a stunt went wrong. According to the suit, Liz Dickson took a golf club to the buttocks when Kevin Klein attempted to strike a ball placed on a tee which was lodged between her buttcheeks. Klein ended up hitting Dickson in the butt with his club...

Game 66: Minny is good, please don’t come out flat again

I felt like finding the most dated picture I could (Jim McIsaac/Getty Images North America). The Rangers came out flat in Carolina, and they were just dominated in every facet of the game. They didn’t deserve to win that game, but they can’t repeat that kind of effort tonight against a dangerous Minnesota team. I use the term dangerous loosely, as they can’t score, but they...

Get It Right

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, - Yes, everyone wants to get the correct calls on the ice. But instead of expanding video review that would undoubtedly add 10-15 minutes of standing around during games waiting for officials to get it right (or, as is obvious with the current kicked-in rule, get it right a little bit more of the time) the NHL’s priority should be improving...
