    Kane debuting in Buffalo would be hilarious

    So what's the lineup gonna look like?

    Rasmussen - Larkin - Raymond
    DeBrincat - Compher - Kane
    Fabbri - Copp - Perron
    Kostin - Veleno - Sprong

    I've changed my mind from my earlier post. I think while he's getting back up to speed he is hidden down the lineup 5 on 5 and given a ton of PP time. I think as long as that goes well, that 2nd line is probably a good guess with some minutes on top line in situations where we are really looking for a goal

    Have we announced a move to reduce the roster yet? Because I think we currently have one too many. Or can he practice without officially being added to the roster and they going to add him and send Berggren back down when Larkin is healthy?

    He can practice. Berggren will get sent back when he’s ready to play.

    Part of me thinks he picked the Red Wings because he viewed it as the team that would cause the most disgust for Blackhawks fans...

    Larkin likely out the next two games. We really need a split regardless.

    This is pretty horrible hockey

    rangers look like they’re on the power play half the time it’s 5 on 5

    They don’t call it this way, but they should probably consider that a major. Knee on knee is so dangerous

    Lalonde is going to smash a stick on the bench at some point this season.

    I don't get how the announcer explains DeBrincat being shoved from behind into the boards as not boarding because "DeBrincat had to know he was coming "

    So that makes it not a penalty?

    I think that stick is above crossbar and announce crew "clearly below"

    Is this the Rangers home broadcast

    It's close but hilarious they were so confident about

    Always going to be tough to win this one on road without Larkin, but too bad we couldn't hold on for one point

    Kostin has been fine but I would love this team to give up a late pick for Patrick Maroon. I just think we need a vet who has been through battles on this team. He doesn’t have to play a ton but his presence will mean a lot.

    Amazing what a competent GM can do to a roster in 4 years (even without lottery luck).

    Don't want to speculate but I know his wife announced she was pregnant last month and some people hinting possibly related to that. Hopefully everything is good

    Happened last year when he left the team for a bit. I think his wife announced it well after the fact.

    Edvinsson has two goals tonight. It’s infuriating he isn’t on the Wings.

    Husso fucking blows. I’d keep playing Lyon until he cools down.

    and if we’d have a goalie worth a shit, we’d be a threat in playoffs.

    Lalonde trying to sit in two goal leads in the third has killed us several times already. Thank god we win.

    Big week starts tonight in Buffalo. We need 4 of 6 points this week. Wins over Buffalo and Ottawa would be massive.
