2011/2012 Season


Viagra cost After perusing the Internet to measure the pulse of Ranger fans following the Rangers losses to the Devils and Senators, viagra cost I find myself in the same position that Kevin Bacon’s character did at the end of Animal House when the town of Faber is in riot-mode following the zany antics of those Delta Tau Chi rapscallions.

Viagra cost The funny thing is that anyone who knows me knows that I am probably the last person you would expect to be extolling a stance of “Remain calm, viagra cost all is well!”

Viagra cost Even with the Blueshirts in the midst of a two-game losing streak (and three of their last four) there is still time to take a step back, viagra cost pause, viagra cost and realize it is not time to go into panic mode – even the losing streak continues with a loss in Chicago to the Blackhawks.

Viagra cost On the plus side, viagra cost the Rangers have been nothing but reliable when it comes to the back-to-back games – as pointed out by Brett Cyrgalis in today’s NY Post.

Viagra cost “With Friday night’s game in Chicago, viagra cost the Rangers will complete their 12th of 14 back-to-backs this season. Viagra cost Thursday night’s loss took their season record in the first game to 8-1-3 (3-0-0 at home, viagra cost 5-1-3 on the road), viagra cost” Cyrgalis points out. Viagra cost “In the second game, viagra cost they are 8-1-2 (6-0-0 at home, viagra cost 2-1-2 on the road). Viagra cost Since 2009-10, viagra cost the team is 29-9-4 in the second game of back-to-backs, viagra cost with a 15-3-1 mark at the Garden and 14-6-3 on the road over that span.”

Viagra cost Just as important to the Rangers and their fans is that the Chicago game kicks off the final stretch of the season that will see the Blueshirts play 10 of their final 15 games at home, viagra cost including a seven-game homestand that begins Sunday night against the Islanders.

Viagra cost While the Rangers will be playing every other day, viagra cost they don’t have to worry about travel and can probably get in a couple of really good practices – something the team needs in order to counter the ills that Coach John Tortorella has noticed of late.

Viagra cost “I think we are beating ourselves sometimes in the game and finding ways to lose, viagra cost” Coach Tortorella said following the Ottawa loss. Viagra cost “We are just going to keep working at our game and trying to chip out the mistakes.”

Viagra cost There is an obvious physical fatigue that is affecting the Rangers play when you factor in the injured players (like Brandon Dubinsky and Michael Sauer) and the hurt players (too numerous to mention). Viagra cost In that respect, viagra cost the Blueshirts are no different than any other team in the NHL at this point in the season.

Viagra cost In addition to the physical fatigue, viagra cost it seems that the Rangers are going through a mental fatigue as well. Viagra cost The Rangers European Vacation and North American Tour to start the season made a long season even longer. Viagra cost Then when you consider that almost every win has been a life-and-death struggle, viagra cost it becomes clear that the Rangers are a fatigued team.

Viagra cost It all points back to Tortorella’s idea that the Rangers are beating themselves and finding ways to lose. Viagra cost The plays that they were making earlier in the season have morphed into turnovers. Viagra cost The bullets that they were dodging because Henrik Lundqvist and Martin Biron were erasing mistakes are now turning into deflection and screened goals.

Viagra cost Of course, viagra cost all of these bumps in the road are magnified by the Rangers inconsistent offense which is keyed by their moribund power play that is 29th in the NHL (just ahead of the Coyotes).

Viagra cost How bad has the power play gotten? Instead of concentrating on scoring goals it is if the Rangers are practicing “Primum non nocere” – “First, viagra cost do no harm”. Viagra cost In other words, viagra cost as long as the Rangers don’t give up a shorthanded goal it can be considered a good power play opportunity. Viagra cost A successful power play would be one where the momentum doesn’t shift to the opponent.

Viagra cost I have said it before and will continue to say it, viagra cost the Rangers power play needs more movement of the puck and, viagra cost more importantly, viagra cost of the players. Viagra cost When the Rangers move themselves and the puck you get games like the one they had ion Philadelphia on February 11 when three power play goals powered the Blueshirts to a 5-2 victory.

Viagra cost In the end, viagra cost the only way the Rangers are going to “right the ship” is by playing the way they have up until this point of the season. Viagra cost They have to outwork their opponents shift-by-shift. Viagra cost The Rangers are not a talented enough team to win on talent alone.

Viagra cost Marian Gaborik might have summed it best while speaking to Andrew Gross of The Record, viagra cost “We just have to play better and support each other more in the neutral zone and play straight ahead. Viagra cost We have to play together as five.”

Viagra cost As nice as it would to have the best record in hockey – and thus have home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs – it is more important that the Rangers get back to playing Rangers hockey. Viagra cost They are already used to playing tight checking playoff hockey. Viagra cost Now they have to get back to being that team again.

How much cialis It looks like the Jeff Carter to the Los Angeles Kings deal might have produced a new, how much cialis and surprising, how much cialis face on the trading block. How much cialis The talk is that the Kings are looking to move Dustin Brown. How much cialis The Kings captain has two more years left on a contract worth $3.2 million. How much cialis TSN’s Bob McKenzie’s opinion is LA likes him as a player, how much cialis but not as their captain. How much cialis While Brown is a RW, how much cialis Coach Daryl Sutter has been playing the slumping Brown on LW of late.

How much cialis Brown isn’t a big-time goal scorer like Rick Nash, how much cialis but he is a solid two-way player who plays on the PP and PK and would fit like a glove into Coach John Tortorella’s system. How much cialis I am not sure if Brandon Dubinsky is the right price in terms of what the Rangers should give up and in terms of what the Kings are looking for in return. How much cialis

How much cialis TSN’s Darren Dreger tweeted that the Kings would be looking for young defenseman and a secondary scorer. How much cialis While Dubinsky fits the secondary scorer tag, how much cialis I don’t know if the Kings want a prospect like a Tim Erixon or Dylan McIlrath.

How much cialis McKenzie tweeted that the following teams might be in on Brown: “BOS, how much cialis BUF, how much cialis EDM, how much cialis NJD, how much cialis NYR, how much cialis PHI, how much cialis TOR, how much cialis VAN are amongst teams with high levels of interest in Brown.”

How much cialis ESPN’s Pierre LeBrunn mentioned the Rangers, how much cialis Boston, how much cialis Philadelphia, how much cialis and Toronto as strong suitors for Brown. How much cialis LeBrun writes that while the Kings really like Luke Schenn, how much cialis that might be a non-starter for Leafs GM Brian Burke – despite Burke a big Brown advocate.

How much cialis It is hard to see the Devils involved on Brown because there is talk they can’t fit Marek Zidlicky in their payroll structure so I am not sure if Brown would fit unless an equal salary went west. How much cialis Besides, how much cialis it appears that the Devils are more interested in adding a defenseman.

How much cialis The question we need to consider is how does the Carter deal play into Rick Nash’s situation. How much cialis Columbus cleared about $4.7 million in cap space by trading away Carter and Antoine Vermette and adding in Jack Johnson’s salary. How much cialis

How much cialis Columbus might not be done dealing, how much cialis outside of any Nash movement, how much cialis with rumors swirling that they might move Sammy Pahlsson (expiring $2.7 million) and R.J. How much cialis Umberger ($3.8 million for next six years). How much cialis If that is the case, how much cialis there may not be an urgent need to subtract Nash’s $7.8 million. How much cialis

How much cialis Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch tweeted this morning that Montreal and Tampa Bay have inquired about Derick Brassard ($3.2 million).

How much cialis However, how much cialis if you are Nash do you really want to stay in Columbus as GM Scott Howson continues rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic? The Blue Jackets captain could force Howson’s hand by demanding a trade and limit Columbus’ ability to trade by invoking his no trade clause.

How much cialis The most interesting point to note is that while Columbus is dumping salaries, how much cialis they are doing among their forwards while running a nice tab among their defensemen. How much cialis The Blue Jackets have approximately $15.7 million committed to their top four blueliners: James Wisniewski ($5.5 million), how much cialis Johnson ($4.4 million), how much cialis Marc Methot ($3.0 million), how much cialis and Fedor Tyutin ($2.8 million). How much cialis

How much cialis In one way the Carter trade plays into the Rangers hands because President/GM Glen Sather can avoid dealing Chris Kreider by offering multiple forward prospects (Dubinsky, how much cialis Christian Thomas, how much cialis Michael St. How much cialis Croix or even J.T. How much cialis Miller) to Columbus make up for the loss of Carter, how much cialis Vermette and possibly Nash.

How much cialis On the down side for the Rangers, how much cialis the Blue Jackets still need to bring in a goaltender to replace or, how much cialis at the very least, how much cialis push Steve Mason to pick up his game. How much cialis With the Kings and Jonathan Bernier out, how much cialis does Vancouver with Cory Schneider look to step in or does San Jose step up with one of their goaltending prospects and then decide to bite the bullet and move Logan Couture in a potential trade?

How much cialis One player I omitted in my Rangers trade deadline preview was Buffalo Sabres center Paul Gaustad. How much cialis The 6-foot-5 and 212-pound Gaustad will be an UFA at the end of the year and carries a $2.3 million cap hit. How much cialis

How much cialis While he is not going to solve the Rangers scoring problems (scored 12 goals in each of three previous seasons), how much cialis he is a solid defensive player who does use his size and has the ability to play wing or center. How much cialis However, how much cialis Gaustad’s biggest calling card is his faceoff ability. How much cialis He is winning 56.2% of his faceoffs this year and is coming a career-best of 59.8% last season.

How much cialis As far as defensemen go, how much cialis the two names I have seen mentioned are Chris Campoli and Shane O’Brien who are on opposite ends of the defenseman spectrum. How much cialis While both have expiring contracts, how much cialis Campoli ($1.75 million cap hit) is a mobile d-man who is not strong physically or defensively while O’Brien ($1.1 million) is a physical defensive d-man who is not a strong skater with little offensive game.

How much cialis There are three other defensemen who should be available and offer up expiring contracts and might draw some interest from the Rangers.

How much cialis Jordan Leopold ($3.0 million) is not a physical player, how much cialis but he is a strong skater and has an offensive upside. How much cialis Brett Clark ($1.5 million) is a mobile defenseman but not as offensive as Leopold. How much cialis While Clark will block shots, how much cialis he is not a physical player.

How much cialis The one defenseman who does intrigue me is Carolina’s Bryan Allen ($2.9 million). How much cialis While the 31-year-old often has battled the injury bug, how much cialis he would bring much-needed size to the table for the Rangers. How much cialis The 6-foot-5 and 226-pound Allen has no offensive game at all, how much cialis but he is a decent skater for his size and has the ability to be a shutdown defenseman.

How much cialis We might know sooner rather than later the direction the Rangers are choosing. How much cialis This morning Dreger tweeted that the Maple Leafs are pushing the Blue Jackets to make a decision as early possible – with Saturday being a potential deadline. How much cialis Dreger also wrote that the Rangers are taking the same stance.

How much cialis It seems that both teams want to know the deal with Plan N (Nash) before deciding if they have to switch to Plan B (Brown).

How much cialis Whichever way Sather decides to go, how much cialis it will not surprise me to see him make a small deal or two to help the Connecticut Whale in their playoff push. How much cialis Thise type of deals might not seem like much, how much cialis but it was deals like that which netted the Rangers valuable parts like Stu Bickel and John Mitchell.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg As the Rangers approach the February 27, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg 2012 NHL Trade Deadline (3pm EST) they must consider a couple of factors when determining their course of action.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Obviously, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the conversation begins with the current salary cap situation, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg as well as future salary caps once the new CBA is completed. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg The NHL will be heading into unchartered territory that might not provide for amnesty buyouts like the previous lockout (See: Bobby Holik) and the new CBA might not be so forgiving in terms of burying salaries (and thus creating cap space) in the AHL (See: Wade Redden).

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg While the conversation begins with salary cap concerns, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg it does not end there. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg The Rangers are in a Catch-22 situation of deciding whether to go all-in and make a blockbuster move to acquire Rick Nash or do they stay the course and look to make a couple of smaller moves to supplement the Eastern Conference’s top team.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg The biggest factor in this discussion revolves around which prospects, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg if any, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the team would be willing to trade. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg After much trial and error, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg president/GM Glen Sather has resisted the urge to mortgage the future for short term gains.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Granted, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg acquiring Nash would be more than just a short term gain given that the Blue Jackets captain will not turn 28 until right around the time the Stanley Cup is awarded. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg However, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the $7.8 million cap hit that Nash carries through the end of the 2014/2015 season does factor into the Blueshirts future.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Ryan McDonagh is a RFA at the end of the 2012/2013 season and Ryan Callahan, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Marian Gaborik, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Daniel Girardi and Henrik Lundqvist are UFA the following season with Marc Staal’s contract up following the 2014/2015 season.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Even if the Rangers are willing to cross the salary cap Rubicon at a later date, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the question becomes what do the Rangers give up for a player the caliber of Nash.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg In almost all of the stories being written, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Brandon Dubinsky’s name is often mentioned. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg While Dubi is a nice two-way player, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Nash would be a major upgrade. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Is Nash enough of an upgrade for the Blueshirts to include their 2012 first round draft pick? Given the depth of the Rangers organization and that the pick could be at the bottom of the first round, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg trading away a first rounder short not be a problem.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg The biggest problem becomes do you include Chris Kreider in the deal. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg That is where Sather needs to draw the line. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Kreider has the potential eventually to give you close to what Nash does and at a fraction of the cost.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg If Columbus GM Scott Howson is going to blow up his franchise then he needs to swing for the fences and I do not believe the Rangers should play that game. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg If you could make the deal for Dubinsky, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg a first round draft pick and let’s say a J.T. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Miller, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg then I would have to think long and hard about it.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg For Howson, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the problem with trading Nash at this point in the season is that a trade partner has to have salary cap space available or can easily create cap space. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg These types are trades are easier to make in the off-season when teams have expiring contracts, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg a mindset of shuffling the deckchairs on the Titanic, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg and the cushion that allows teams to exceed the cap by 10%.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg In addition, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg I value Dylan McIlrath almost as much as Kreider. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg While the Blueshirts defense corps is deep and talented, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg it lacks the physical presence and size that McIlrath brings.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Even if we push aside the salary cap quandary and the players/prospects decision, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg there is still one final factor to consider. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Do the Rangers want to make a major move that would disturb team chemistry? Of all the trade factors to consider, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg this one might be the biggest and most difficult to judge.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Coach John Tortorella has built the Rangers along the idea of a true team concept with no one player more important than the other – except in the case of Henrik Lundqvist for obvious reasons.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg On February 11, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Daily News write Pat Leonard wrote, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg “GM Glen Sather is not expected to break the bank since the Rangers appear built for long-term success with a solid core, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg great goaltending and youth. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg This also is a tight locker room, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg so a trade that risks the team’s chemistry probably isn’t worth it to management.”

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Leonard’s point is a valid one and it is one made by many Ranger fans. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg However, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg would a trade, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg or even two, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg really disrupt chemistry all that much?

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg In 1994, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg GM Neil Smith made the following five trades on deadline day.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg • Phil Bourque traded from NY Rangers to Ottawa for future considerations.
• Peter Andersson traded from NY Rangers to Florida for future considerations.
• Tony Amonte and the rights to Matt Oates traded from NY Rangers to Chicago for Stephane Matteau and Brian Noonan.
• Mike Gartner traded from NY Rangers to Toronto for Glenn Anderson, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the rights to Scott Malone and Toronto’s fourth-round pick in 1994 Entry Draft.
• Craig MacTavish traded from Edmonton to NY Rangers for Todd Marchant.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg While the first deals were more housekeeping than anything else, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the remaining three trades involved significant players coming and going and represented a big gamble and restructuring of a team that was a major Stanley Cup contender – without seeming to do any harm to that team’s chemistry.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Would the Rangers have won the Cup without making those trades? We will never know, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg but the one thing we are certain of is that Smith’s gamble paid off in 1994.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Of course, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the current team is very different from the 1993/1994 team. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg The Cup team was led by Mark Messier and contained enough veteran leadership to overcome any chemistry issues. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg This team is a lot younger and more inexperienced when it comes to the Stanley Cup playoff wars.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg The Rangers have already gone down the rent-a-Cup path in 1994 with Smith gambling and dealing away younger talent for veteran/battle-tested players. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg The Rangers won the battle (i.e. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg the Stanley Cup), buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg but it can also be said that they lost the war because of the infusion of young talent that was dealt. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg The one thing to recognize is that Smith brought in role players to supplement his star players where Sather would be bringing in a star player, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg to more or less, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg supplement his role players.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Some have suggested passing on Nash completely with the hopes of signing UFA Zach Parise during the summer. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg I have heard this idea many times – skip on getting Player A via a trade or free agency because Player B will be a free agent next year. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Inevitably, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Player B doesn’t become a free agent. Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg While this strategy would alleviate some of the concerns of the new CBA, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg it is a risky strategy because what happens if Parise is not on the market.

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Of course being a cynical Ranger fan (yes, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg I know that is redundant), buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg what happens if you do sign Parise? The Rangers have not had the greatest track when it comes to signing former New Jersey Devils (See: Bruce Driver, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg Bobby Holik and Scott Gomez).

Buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg In the end, buying cialis soft tabs 100 mg I believe the only way the Rangers should bring Rick Nash aboard is if Scott Howson makes Glen Sather an offer he can’t refuse – and any offer that includes Chris Kreider and Dylan McIlrath can be refused.

Viagra female u k The current and, viagra female u k more importantly, viagra female u k future salary cap implications should dictate how the Rangers proceed as they approach the February 27, viagra female u k 2012 NHL trade deadline.

Viagra female u k According to CapGeek.com , viagra female u k as of February 21, viagra female u k 2012, viagra female u k the Rangers have about $6.0 million in cap space. Viagra female u k However, viagra female u k Cap Geek points out that if the Rangers were to wait until February 27, viagra female u k then their cap space rises to about $6.9 million.

Viagra female u k Here is how Cap Geek explains their calculations:
… if a team is listed with $10 million today and $25 million at the deadline, viagra female u k it could acquire Alexander Ovechkin’s $9.538-million cap hit today and not much more. Viagra female u k But if it waited until the trade deadline, viagra female u k it could acquire Ovechkin, viagra female u k as well as Alexandre Semin ($6.7 million cap hit), viagra female u k Nicklas Backstrom ($6.7 million) and Mike Knuble ($2 million), viagra female u k because the sum of those annualized cap hits ($24.938 million) is less than $25 million.

Viagra female u k Unless Columbus GM Scott Howson presents Rick Nash to the Blueshirts on a silver platter, viagra female u k the Rangers best course of action is to look to add players who have expiring contracts. Viagra female u k Not only do they bypass any future salary cap implications, viagra female u k the cost for rental players could be less than the cost for someone like Nash.

Viagra female u k The 2011/2012 Rangers are a different animal than the 1993/94 Blueshirts. Viagra female u k The 1994 Rangers were, viagra female u k hands down, viagra female u k the best team in the NHL at the deadline while the 2012 team is not – no matter what the standings might say.

Viagra female u k Even if you wanted to argue that point, viagra female u k there is one thing that can’t be argued. Viagra female u k In 1994, viagra female u k Smith did not have to contend with a salary cap – something that Sather must be concerned with in 2012 and beyond.

Viagra female u k The problem with trying to sort out the buyers and sellers is that 11 points separate the 15th place team (Carolina) and the 8th place team (Toronto) in the Eastern Conference.

Viagra female u k In the Western Conference, viagra female u k only Edmonton (15 points out of a playoff spot) and Columbus (25 points) can be considered out of the playoff hunt with Anaheim eight points out.

Viagra female u k With so many teams still envisioning themselves as playoff contenders, viagra female u k it is a sellers’ market – thus potentially driving up the price on the type of complementary players the Rangers would be looking to acquire.

Viagra female u k Setting aside Nash, viagra female u k the two players who seem to draw the most interest from Ranger fans are Shane Doan and Ryan Smyth. Viagra female u k Both are solid players who would fit well in the Rangers – both on the ice and off. Viagra female u k Both players will be UFA at the end of the season so there is no salary cap concerns beyond this year and both players would fit under this year’s cap: Smyth’s full-season salary is $6.25 million and Doan’s is 4.5 million.

Viagra female u k The problem with both players is they each have no-trade clauses and want to remain with their teams. Viagra female u k Doan, viagra female u k the Coyotes’ captain, viagra female u k has spent his entire career with the Phoenix/Winnipeg organization. Viagra female u k Smyth, viagra female u k who has played with four different teams since the start of the 2006/2007 season, viagra female u k has indicated a willingness to remain in his native Alberta. Viagra female u k

Viagra female u k The one ace up the Rangers sleeve is that Glen Sather was the Edmonton GM when the Oilers made the 6th overall draft pick in the 1994 NHL Draft. Viagra female u k The Sather connection and a desire to win a Stanley Cup might be enough for Smyth to head to New York for the 2nd time in his career. Viagra female u k Interestingly enough, viagra female u k the Islanders acquired Smyth from Edmonton on February 27, viagra female u k 2007 (in exchange for Robert Nilsson, viagra female u k Ryan O’Meara and 1st round draft pick) – so history could repeat itself.

Viagra female u k If Doan or Smythe prove to be outside of the Rangers reach, viagra female u k here is a brief list of names to keep your eye as the deadline nears, viagra female u k with their full-season cap hit listed.

Viagra female u k BRAD BOYES ($4.0 million) – After posting 43 goals in 2007/2008 and 33 goals in 2008/2009, viagra female u k the RW/C has been a major disappointment scoring just 32 goals in the last 2 ½ years. Viagra female u k Boyes will be an UFA at the end of the year and should be available for a relatively cheap price. Viagra female u k Ranger scouts would have to really look hard to see if the 29-year-old has anything left in the tank.

Viagra female u k JAROME IGINLA ($7.0 million) – The Flames captain is in the same boat as Doan and Smyth in terms of wanting to stay with his team. Viagra female u k The major differences is that Iginla doesn’t become an UFA until after 2012/2013 so the Rangers would have to build his salary into their cap for next year and Calgary is the thick of the playoff hunt in the Western Conference. Viagra female u k The 34-year-old is on pace for his 11th consecutive 30-goal season.

Viagra female u k VINNY PROSPAL ($2.6 million) – The former Ranger just signed a contract extension so it is tough to read what Columbus is thinking. Viagra female u k With them shopping both Nash and Jeff Carter, viagra female u k are the Blue Jackets looking to Prospal as a bridge to a new group of prospects or do they believe they can get more for him if he is signed for one more year. Viagra female u k The advantage is that Prospal knows Tortorella and the team and would easily slide on to the first line with Derek Stepan and Marian Gaborik – allowing the Rangers to move Artem Anisimov to the second or third lines.

Viagra female u k TUOMO RUUTU ($3.8 million) – Ruutu is on the wish list of some Ranger fans because he has, viagra female u k as Torts would say, viagra female u k “jam” to his game. Viagra female u k Ruutu might not solve their goal scoring problems, viagra female u k but he would bring a “Sean Avery intensity” to the Blueshirts with a little more scoring. Viagra female u k However, viagra female u k he does have one more year left on his contract and has had issues with injuries during the last couple of years. Viagra female u k In fact, viagra female u k he is expected to be out at least three weeks with the dreaded “upper body injury”.

Viagra female u k TEEMU SELANNE ($4.0 million) – I know some of you are rolling your eyes at the thought of the 41-year-old Selanne in a Rangers uniform. Viagra female u k Just remember this, viagra female u k he would be third on the team in goals (19) and first in assists (33) and points (52) were he a Ranger now. Viagra female u k Anaheim GM Bob Murray listed Selanne and Saku Koivu as untouchable as far as trades go. Viagra female u k Then again he had to because both have no-trade clauses. Viagra female u k Granted, viagra female u k Selanne is not the same “Finnish Rocket” he was in his prime and might struggle to score in the Rangers system, viagra female u k he still would add much needed offense – especially on the power play. Viagra female u k Selanne is one PPG away from hitting double figures in six of his last seven seasons. Viagra female u k The one year he didn’t score 10+ PPG was in 2007-2008 and he did score 7 in 26 games after he re-signed with Anaheim in January 2008.

Viagra female u k If the Rangers are willing to look at a player who has a couple of years left on his contract, viagra female u k they might want to head down to Tortorella’s old stomping grounds in Tampa Bay and kick the tires on Martin St. Viagra female u k Louis.

Viagra female u k The 36-year-old winger has three more years left on his contract at a cap hit of $5.6 million. Viagra female u k Since he signed his current deal as 35+ player, viagra female u k the Rangers could not get salary relief by sending him to the AHL. Viagra female u k Given his production during the last few years, viagra female u k that might not be a problem.

Viagra female u k St. Viagra female u k Louis is on pace for 76 points and will represent the sixth consecutive season he has scored 76+points. Viagra female u k He is also on pace for 26 goals and that would make it 11 consecutive seasons of 25+ goals.

Viagra female u k Prior to this season and since becoming a regular with Tampa Bay during the 2000/2001 season, viagra female u k St. Viagra female u k Louis has played 80+ games every season except two.

Levitra vs cialis The Rangers Thursday night matchup with the Tampa Bay Lightning had all the makings of a classic trap game. Levitra vs cialis The Blueshirts were coming off an emotional (and controversial) loss to their division and geographical rival New Jersey Devils and face the task of back-to-back afternoon games against the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals.

Levitra vs cialis The overtime victory against the Lightning won’t earn the Rangers any gold medals in terms of style points, levitra vs cialis the win does strike gold in terms of the mantra of the late Al Davis who urged his Raiders teams to “Just win, levitra vs cialis baby.”

Levitra vs cialis More than Brad Richards breaking a one goal in 12 games slump (on the same night that Scott Gomez ends his year-long goal scoring drought no less), levitra vs cialis more than the Rangers finally scoring a power play goal (the team’s first 5-on-4 power play goal in 14 games), levitra vs cialis the team made sure they didn’t enter a very difficult week with a two game losing streak.

Levitra vs cialis Rick Carpiniello offered an interesting insight into the Rangers ability to bounce back this season and (up until now) prevent any long losing streaks from derailing their season.

Levitra vs cialis “Not to be one of those Negative Nancys, levitra vs cialis but you wonder when this team will actually lose a few in a row, levitra vs cialis” Carpiniello wrote Friday morning on his Journal News Rangers Report Blog. Levitra vs cialis “They haven’t deserved to have a losing streak, levitra vs cialis but, levitra vs cialis my gosh, levitra vs cialis every team since the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens (who went 60-8-12) has had a losing streak at some point, levitra vs cialis right? These Rangers haven’t lost more than two in a row in regulation all year, levitra vs cialis and haven’t gone more than two without a win since starting the season 0-1-2. Levitra vs cialis It’s got to happen.”

Levitra vs cialis There are a lot of words that can be used to describe the 2011/2012 New York Rangers – some of which can’t be printed or uttered in polite circles. Levitra vs cialis However, levitra vs cialis when you take into account Carpiniello’s statement, levitra vs cialis the one word that can be used is resilient.

Levitra vs cialis All teams and athletes, levitra vs cialis across the entire sports spectrum, levitra vs cialis have to learn to deal with and conquer adversity. Levitra vs cialis It is a fundamental part of the makeup of championship teams and athletes.

Levitra vs cialis In the Rangers case, levitra vs cialis their resiliency and ability to conquer adversity is imperative because, levitra vs cialis to use an old Herb Brooks saying, levitra vs cialis they are not talented enough to win on talent alone.

Levitra vs cialis The Rangers “Black-and-Blue-shirts” mentality has not only endeared themselves to their fans, levitra vs cialis it also serves as the driving force for their resiliency and adaptability. Levitra vs cialis The more roadblocks that are thrown at them, levitra vs cialis the harder the Rangers work.

Levitra vs cialis Have to open the regular season in Europe, levitra vs cialis no problem. Levitra vs cialis Lengthy road trip to start the season, levitra vs cialis check. Levitra vs cialis Injuries to a defense corps forces Coach John Tortorella to give major ice time to players like Stu Bickel, levitra vs cialis Anton Stralman and Jeff Woywitka (all players who did not fit into the team’s pre-season plans), levitra vs cialis got that covered as well.

Levitra vs cialis The best explanation for the Rangers’ resiliency might have come from someone who knows a thing or two about hockey.

Levitra vs cialis “They have everything going in the right direction now, levitra vs cialis” Wayne Gretzky told Dan Rosen of nhl.com on Thursday. Levitra vs cialis “They play hard and they play smart. Levitra vs cialis They believe in themselves and each guy does his own job. Levitra vs cialis They don’t have guys that try to do what they’re not supposed to do. Levitra vs cialis On top of that, levitra vs cialis John is a tremendous coach.”

Levitra vs cialis The back-to-back weekend matinees start a four game/six day stretch that sees the Rangers pay a return visit to Boston to take on the Eastern Conference’s second place Bruins on Tuesday night and concludes with a Thursday night game at the Garden against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Levitra vs cialis Following this four game stretch, levitra vs cialis the Rangers face another trap game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on February 19 which is followed by straight Eastern Conference matchups before the Rangers visit the United Center for a March 9 rematch with the Blackhawks.

Levitra vs cialis The Rangers season will not be made during this stretch, levitra vs cialis but they need to use these games to start shoring up some of the weaknesses in their games – inconsistent scoring and a sputtering offense. Levitra vs cialis Interestingly enough, levitra vs cialis solving one of those problems would probably solve the other.

Levitra vs cialis An interesting side note came from CBC.ca columnist Elliotte Friedman in his weekly column on Tuesday in reference to the Rangers and Wild trade. Levitra vs cialis Minnesota sent forward Casey Wellman to New York in exchange for Erik Christensen and a conditional seventh round draft pick in 2013 in a deal that opened up a roster spot for Steve Eminger and provided some new blood for the struggling Connecticut Whale (who was in the midst of a 0-9-2 stretch).

Levitra vs cialis The 6-foot-0/173 pound speedy Wellman was not the Rangers original target according to Friedman. Levitra vs cialis Rather, levitra vs cialis the Rangers set their sights on 6-foot-2/199 pound physical forward Cody Almond, levitra vs cialis but Wild GM Chuck Fletcher would not relent. Levitra vs cialis Friedman said that Rangers pro scout Doug Risebrough, levitra vs cialis former Wild GM, levitra vs cialis was the driving force behind the push for Almond.

Levitra vs cialis Wellman becomes the first University of Massachusetts player to become a member of the Rangers organization since defenseman Thomas Pock (2003/04 thru 2007/08), levitra vs cialis who played 59 NHL games with the Blueshirts.

Purchasing cialis Depending on your point of view, purchasing cialis and with all apologies to Charles Dickens, purchasing cialis the NHL’s annual All-Star break comes at the best of times or the worst of times for the New York Rangers. Purchasing cialis For the first time since 1993-94, purchasing cialis the Rangers reach the All-Star break in first place in the Eastern Conference and with the best points-per-game ratio in the NHL. Purchasing cialis Conversely, purchasing cialis the Blueshirts plethora of skating wounded and injured players can use the time off to heal up for the grueling stretch run.

Purchasing cialis That grueling run to the playoffs sees the Rangers playing 35 games in the final 68 days of the regular season – including seven sets of back-to-back games (New Jersey to Buffalo, purchasing cialis Philadelphia to NYR, purchasing cialis NYI to NYR, purchasing cialis Carolina to Tampa Bay, purchasing cialis Ottawa to Chicago, purchasing cialis NYR to Toronto, purchasing cialis and Minnesota to Winnipeg).

Purchasing cialis In any other season, purchasing cialis the All-Star break would end up being the Rangers Kryptonite as all of their momentum would be lost during the week off. Purchasing cialis However, purchasing cialis this season should be different from most.

Purchasing cialis NBC Sports hockey analyst Pierre McGuire provided some insight into why this season might be different while speaking to Justin Terranova of the NY Post.

Purchasing cialis “[The Rangers] learned a lot last year by losing to Washington in the playoffs when they had a chance to maybe have more of an advantage in that series, purchasing cialis but they dropped the ball late in games, purchasing cialis” McGuire said while analyzing how the Rangers went from a life-and-death struggle for the playoffs last year to a first place showdown this year.

Purchasing cialis “I saw it happen to Chicago when they lost to Detroit in the Western Conference Finals and the next year they steamrolled their way to the Stanley Cup. Purchasing cialis Teams need to lose in the playoffs as a group and try to understand what went wrong and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

Purchasing cialis The seven-day break is just another obstacle that has found its way in the Rangers path. Purchasing cialis From the team opening the season in Europe as part of a seven-game road trip to start the season through HBO’s coverage leading up to the Winter Classic, purchasing cialis and then finally the Winter Classic itself, purchasing cialis the Blueshirts have had quite an eventful first half of the season.

Purchasing cialis They have handled without major fanfare or excuse making – which is the way Coach John Tortorella approached the season from the very beginning.
“It is imperative that we handle everything properly, purchasing cialis including the travel, purchasing cialis the schedule, purchasing cialis HBO and anything else that comes our way, purchasing cialis” Tortorella explained to Larry Brooks of the NY Post in September. Purchasing cialis “We cannot complain about anything . Purchasing cialis . Purchasing cialis . Purchasing cialis and I’m including myself in that, purchasing cialis as much as anybody, purchasing cialis and maybe more so.
“With all the stuff that’s going to be swirling around us, purchasing cialis our mental approach and ability to keep our focus on the right things is going to a huge, purchasing cialis huge part of our season; even more than systems and the X’s and O’s.”

Purchasing cialis “There’s no doubt that excuses will be out there for anybody who wants to lean on them, purchasing cialis” Torts added. Purchasing cialis “But there will be no excuses with our team.”
The theme of maintaining the focus inward on the team while keeping an “eye on the prize” is one that Tortorella emphasized following the Rangers 3-0 victory over Winnipeg preceding the All-Star break.

Purchasing cialis “The league is going to get better. Purchasing cialis The tempo is going to get better. Purchasing cialis I think it becomes a quicker game, purchasing cialis but there’s also a grind to it, purchasing cialis too. Purchasing cialis We cannot stop working on all parts of our game. Purchasing cialis We spent a lot of time on the details of it. Purchasing cialis We cannot stop trying to get better at that stuff because teams will pass you, purchasing cialis” Tortorella explained. Purchasing cialis

Purchasing cialis “You look at the standings and a lot of teams win. Purchasing cialis If you don’t stay on top of yourselves and worry about the details of how we play and remain true to our identity, purchasing cialis there will be some struggles. Purchasing cialis You never know where it goes from there.”

Purchasing cialis Rangers captain Ryan Callahan echoed his coach’s mantra following the Jets game.

Purchasing cialis “We’ve had a good first half now. Purchasing cialis It’s good going into the break knowing you’re sitting in first place. Purchasing cialis But at the same time, purchasing cialis the hockey only gets harder from here, purchasing cialis” Callahan told Josh Thomson of the Journal News. Purchasing cialis “Everybody picks it up a notch. Purchasing cialis We have to continue to do the same to have more success.”

Purchasing cialis The All-Star break gives GMs the opportunity to start laying the groundwork for the eventual trades that will take place in February leading up to the NHL’s trade deadline at 3pm EST on February 27. Purchasing cialis There is plenty of time for Ranger fans to contemplate possible trade targets. Purchasing cialis Heck, purchasing cialis it is very possible that the Blueshirts might wait until the last minute before swinging a deal – and with good reason.

Purchasing cialis According to CapGeek.com , purchasing cialis as of January 27, purchasing cialis 2012, purchasing cialis the Rangers have a little more than $3.0 million in cap space. Purchasing cialis However, purchasing cialis CapGeek points out that if the Rangers were to wait until February 27), purchasing cialis then their cap space rises to more than $5.4 million.

Purchasing cialis Outside of getting healthy and staying healthy, purchasing cialis the Rangers biggest concern has to be reviving their moribund power play which is ranked 26th in the NHL. Purchasing cialis Imagine what kind of season the Rangers could be having if they had a Top 10 power play.

Purchasing cialis Many people have lamented that the Rangers biggest need is a player to QB the power play. Purchasing cialis The only problem with that thought is that the Rangers have had success without the prototypical power play QB. Purchasing cialis

Purchasing cialis During the first two seasons after the lockout (2005-06 and 2006-07), purchasing cialis the Blueshirts had the 8th ranked power play with the “immortal” Michal Rozsival as the key man on the point. Purchasing cialis Yes, purchasing cialis they had Jaromir Jagr but they also had a system that saw the team use a system that set up Jagr on his off-wing.

Purchasing cialis The Edmonton Oilers have the 3rd rated power play (21.3% to the Rangers 14.1%) and they do not feature a Brian Leetch-like player on their roster.

Purchasing cialis Rather than worrying about what the Rangers don’t have, purchasing cialis the team needs to focus on using the players they do have within a simple system.

Purchasing cialis Without being asked a direct question about the team’s power play, purchasing cialis Tortorella indirectly answered one of the power play’s biggest problems.

Purchasing cialis In the Winnipeg post-game press conference Torts spoke what the Rangers need to focus on in the second half.

Purchasing cialis “A big part of what I think we have to get better at are rebound goals. Purchasing cialis And before you get rebound goals, purchasing cialis you have to shoot the puck on the net, purchasing cialis” Tortorella explained. Purchasing cialis “We tend to look for the next play where probably the best play is being ready to shoot before it comes to you and to shoot it instead of trying to pass it.”

Purchasing cialis Factoring in Tortorella’s comments with some of my pet peeves, purchasing cialis I have come up with a three-point plan that should improve the Rangers power play.

Purchasing cialis Point 1 – Movement. Far too often the Rangers power play stagnates as they play the puck around the perimeter looking for that perfect shot – which does not happen too much because puck movement has to be accompanied by player movement. Purchasing cialis Watch the Rangers power play and you notice that there are a lot of Blueshirts standing around.

Purchasing cialis Point 2 – Get in front of the net. Unless the Rangers find a way to manufacture the second coming of Al MacInnis and Bobby Hull, purchasing cialis the team needs to create more traffic in front of the net. Purchasing cialis By the way, purchasing cialis this point goes beyond the man advantage. Purchasing cialis The Rangers need to take more advantage of this strategy during five-on-five play as well. Purchasing cialis More often than not, purchasing cialis pucks/rebounds will be sliding through the top of the crease and no Ranger is in front of the net. Purchasing cialis More often than not, purchasing cialis you will see a Ranger at the side of the net along the goal line rather than in front of the net. Purchasing cialis Watch for this over the space of a couple of games and you will see why I am rapidly getting even balder .

Purchasing cialis Point 3 – Shoot the puck (On Net). Points two and three go along with Tortorella’s opinion; however, purchasing cialis I take it one step further by emphasizing the “On Net” part. Purchasing cialis Some Rangers (Michael Del Zotto is at the top of the list) need to realize that sometimes less is more when they are shooting. Purchasing cialis The idea is to put the puck on goal, purchasing cialis not through it. Purchasing cialis Sometimes the best pass is a shot on goal. Purchasing cialis And much like Point 2, purchasing cialis this is a strategy the Rangers can employ during even-strength situations as well.

Buy cialis With visions of sugar-plums dancing in my head, buy cialis and looking forward to a week of wrapping Christmas gifts and my annual 12-hour Biscotti Bake-athon, buy cialis I take refuge in the New York Rangers. Buy cialis Rather than focusing on one or two topics, buy cialis today I am taking a different approach by commenting on random ramblings.

Buy cialis Tim Erixon

Buy cialis The New York Rangers have recalled defenseman Tim Erixon as they heed Horace Greeley’s advice and head west for two games (St. Buy cialis Louis on Thursday and Phoenix on Saturday). Buy cialis It does set off some debate as to why Erixon was recalled. Buy cialis Andrew Gross of The Record offers the following scenarios:

Buy cialis 1. Buy cialis It could mean the Rangers just want some in-case insurance since they’re traveling across the Mississippi.
2. Buy cialis (More likely) Steve Eminger’s left arm is a question mark after he blocked a second-period shot and went to the bench in pain during last night’s 1-0 loss to the Stars. Buy cialis Eminger came back for the third period and was on the ice for eight shifts over the final 20 minutes.
3. Buy cialis (Possible) Coach John Tortorella is not totally satisfied with play he’s receiving from third pair of Jeff Woywitka and Anton Stralman.
4. Buy cialis (Possible) Mike Sauer (concussion) is headed to injured reserve.

Buy cialis Since Marc Staal is listed on the Long-Term Injured Reserve list, buy cialis the Rangers will not have to make any salary cap moves. Buy cialis The Rangers have placed Sauer on Injured Reserve due to the concussion he received on Dion Phaneuf’s hit. Buy cialis Is it possible that the Rangers placed Sauer on the injured list with an eye towards placing him LTIR and trying to open a little more salary cap space for a trade deadline deal.

Buy cialis On a side note, buy cialis today has been a bad day for the NHL in terms of concussions as Milan Michalek, buy cialis Joni Pitkanen and Jeffrey Skinner all join Sauer on the sidelines due to concussions.

Buy cialis Brandon Dubinsky

Buy cialis Speaking of the lineup, buy cialis it might be time to give Brandon Dubinsky a break from the action. Buy cialis You can make as good a case for t sitting him down as you can for not giving him a game off. Buy cialis While Coach John Tortorella guards his lineup decisions with the same fervor as the United States guards Fort Knox, buy cialis it might be time for Torts to open up a bit.

Buy cialis During his banter with the media today, buy cialis let everyone know that Dubi will be sitting out the St. Buy cialis Louis game ONLY and strongly state that Dubinsky will be back in the lineup against Phoenix no matter what happens Thursday night. Buy cialis The explanation is that you want to give Dubi a chance to just sit back and clear his head. Buy cialis Heck, buy cialis put headphones on him in the press box and let him stay in contact with Mike Sullivan on the bench – not a bad way for a struggling player to take a long – and different – look at the game. Buy cialis

Buy cialis If Sean Avery happens to have a whale of game (pun intended), buy cialis then Torts has a pleasant lineup decision to make. Buy cialis If Avery doesn’t play well, buy cialis then it is a case of no-harm, buy cialis no-foul. Buy cialis

Buy cialis When Dubinsky is the lineup, buy cialis I would tweak the lines a little bit. Buy cialis I would consider putting Dubi back with Brad Richards and Ryan Callahan, buy cialis or at the very least flip him and Brian Boyle so that Dubinsky can skate with Carl Hagelin and John Mitchell – which might be the best idea because it will force Dubinsky to concentrate on his skating to keep up with the speedy wingers.

Buy cialis Brave New NHL

Buy cialis All of the beat writers have been hammering home the lament that NHL fans will be “treated” to more ho-hum games like last night’s Ranger-Stars game thanks to the new balanced schedule. Buy cialis With less four-point games on the schedule, buy cialis you are going to have more nights where both teams appear to be going through the motions as opposed to snatching two points from a division rival. Buy cialis Oops, buy cialis I forgot in the new NHL there are no divisions – just conferences.

Buy cialis What is my take on the new NHL realignment? Let’s just say if there was a way for the NHL to screw up a good thing – they will. Buy cialis In 1994 the NHL was coming off the high of the Rangers winning the Stanley Cup for the first time in 54 years. Buy cialis So what happens next – the NHL locks out the players and the 1994-195season doesn’t start until January 20, buy cialis 1995.

Buy cialis After “learning” their lesson, buy cialis a decade later the NHL becomes the first major pro sports league to cancel an entire season as the owners again lockout the players.

Buy cialis The only saving grace over the NHL realignment plan is that the CBA is up at the end of the year and the NHL will again lockout the players and during the subsequent down time cooler heads will prevail as the NHL goes back to its six divisions and two conferences.

Buy cialis Shoot the Puck … On Net

Buy cialis I am always amused when Ranger fans scream “Shoot” when the Blueshirts go into their “Sweet Georgia Brown” power play. Buy cialis What fans forget to add to the “Shoot” yell is “on net”. Buy cialis I understand that there are times when a player has to shoot wide in order to prevent a blocked shot and a breakaway the other way. Buy cialis Heck, buy cialis in those buildings with lively dasher boards, buy cialis it is often a good strategy.

Buy cialis No, buy cialis I am talking about when a Ranger has a relatively clear shot and just shoots wide as he is trying to put the puck through the goalie or as if he is trying to pick corners. Buy cialis

Buy cialis While fans are quick to put the hammer down on Michael Del Zotto for doing that (especially when his shots go wide of the net and start flying out to the neutral zone on sharp angle shots), buy cialis it is a team-wide affliction that creeps far too often.

Buy cialis Perhaps the Rangers need to adapt a Brylcreem attitude toward their shots – “a little dab’ll do ya”. Buy cialis Sometimes it better to sacrifice some MPHs for accuracy.

Buy cialis Torts and His Line Changes

Buy cialis Funny, buy cialis I don’t remember fans complaining too much about line juggling back during the 1993-1994 when Mike Keenan employed the “RW du jour” approach when it came to finding a match for Adam Graves and Mark Messier. Buy cialis I think I remember John Davidson taking a shift or two amid the likes of Tony Amonte, buy cialis Glenn Anderson, buy cialis Mike Gartner, buy cialis Alexei Kovalev, buy cialis Steve Larmer and a cast of thousands.

Buy cialis I also don’t hear too many Penguin fans complaining that Dan Bylsma juggles his lines to optimize the likes of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Buy cialis By the way, buy cialis is it me or shouldn’t Bylsma endorse Brylcreem?

Buy cialis The Rangers do not struggle to score because Tortorella juggles his lines. Buy cialis Rather, buy cialis he juggles his lines when the Rangers are not scoring.

Buy cialis Just In case …

Buy cialis I don’t get the opportunity to post another Ranger Ramblings before the holidays hit, buy cialis please let me take this opportunity to wish everyone the very best during this Christmas and Hanukkah season. Buy cialis May everyone’s holiday be merry, buy cialis happy and safe and here is to a great 2012 – one that is capped off with Gary Bettman saying, buy cialis “Captain Ryan Callahan, buy cialis come get the Stanley Cup!”

Viagra drug interaction The New York Rangers have traded defenseman Tomas Kundratek to the Washington Capitals in exchange for RW Francois Bouchard. Viagra drug interaction The 23-year-old was the Capitals second round draft pick (35th overall) in 2006. Viagra drug interaction The 6-0/180 Bouchard spent four years in the QMJHL with the Baie-Comeau Drakkar. Viagra drug interaction In 259 Junior games, viagra drug interaction he scored 125 goals and 218 assists. Viagra drug interaction In his last three years, viagra drug interaction he averaged 38 goals and 68 assists.

Viagra drug interaction Bouchard has spent the last three seasons with Washington’s AHL affiliate in Hershey where he scored 49 goals and 63 assists in 219 games – including career highs in games, viagra drug interaction goals, viagra drug interaction assists and points (77-21-31-52) during the 2009/2010. Viagra drug interaction Bouchard helped lead Hershey to Calder Cup championships in 2008/2009 and 2009/2010. Viagra drug interaction He is scoreless in nine games this season with the Bears while Kundratek had two assists in 7 games with the Whale.

Viagra drug interaction His biggest claim to fame is that Francois is the brother of Minnesota Wild center Pierre-Marc Bouchard.

Viagra drug interaction According to Howlings.net, viagra drug interaction Kundratek had been scratched during the last few games and the Whale need some depth and offense at forward.

Viagra drug interaction Prior to the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, viagra drug interaction the International Scouting Service rated him as their 68th best prospect and offered the following Scouting Report:

“Francois Bouchard; younger brother of Pierre-Marc Bouchard of the Minnesota Wild. Viagra drug interaction He was consistently one of Baie-Comeau’s most dangerous players thru the regular season, viagra drug interaction finishing 13th overall in QMJHL scoring, viagra drug interaction but was less than spectacular in the playoffs. Viagra drug interaction Shows excellent hockey sense, viagra drug interaction has a very good feel for the game in the offensive zone. Viagra drug interaction He has all the skills to succeed at the NHL level; a good skater, viagra drug interaction very good puck and passing skills, viagra drug interaction and sees the ice very well. Viagra drug interaction Plays too much on the perimeter and is easily intimidated. Viagra drug interaction He will need to improve both his physical and defensive game if he wishes.”

Viagra drug interaction Here some other Scouting reports on Bouchard that were listed on the Capitals official web site:

Viagra drug interaction Red Line Report:
Younger brother of Pierre-Marc Bouchard had a mostly overlooked 100+ point season. Viagra drug interaction Quick release on accurate shot. Viagra drug interaction Moves puck to the right spot at the right time. Viagra drug interaction Has a world of skill and really soft hands in tight – capable of highlight reel goals with patience around the net. Viagra drug interaction Not as imaginative a passer as his brother, viagra drug interaction but might be a better finisher around the net. Viagra drug interaction Has uncanny instincts and hockey sense at the offensive end. Viagra drug interaction Plays in spurts – can be dominant for 3-4 shifts, viagra drug interaction then goes quiet for long stretches. Viagra drug interaction Hurt himself with invisible performance at World U-18s. Viagra drug interaction Wasn’t strong on the puck and didn’t drive through checks. Viagra drug interaction Work ethic was lacking and got him demoted. Viagra drug interaction Not strong in upper body – can be moved off the puck. Viagra drug interaction Needs to bring his full talent to bear on more consistent basis.
Projection: 2nd line scoring winger
Style compares to: J.P. Viagra drug interaction Dumont

Viagra drug interaction The Hockey News:
While one of Francois Bouchard’s strengths is his playmaking skills, viagra drug interaction he is not quite as gifted as his older brother, viagra drug interaction Pierre-Marc of the Minnesota Wild, viagra drug interaction in that department. Viagra drug interaction But the younger Bouchard is still very talented and his hockey sense is sound, viagra drug interaction too. Viagra drug interaction And he holds at least one advantage over Pierre-Marc. Viagra drug interaction “He has more size than his brother, viagra drug interaction” said one scout.

Viagra drug interaction No kidding. Viagra drug interaction Pierre-Marc is just one NHLer proving good things can come in small packages. Viagra drug interaction “He [Francois] is a guy who can have success at the NHL level if you put him in the right role, viagra drug interaction say on the second line and on the second power play unit, viagra drug interaction” said the scout.

Viagra drug interaction Another scout, viagra drug interaction who still considers Bouchard to be small even though he is bigger than Pierre-Marc, viagra drug interaction is certain the younger brother will play in the NHL as well. Viagra drug interaction “Size and skating are issues, viagra drug interaction but he is intriguing because of his playmaking ability, viagra drug interaction” said the scout. Viagra drug interaction “He is not as good a skater [as his brother], viagra drug interaction but he has great hands.”

Viagra drug interaction But whoever drafts the younger Bouchard would do well to not hurry him into the NHL before his is ready, viagra drug interaction like the Wild did P-M. Viagra drug interaction “He needs to be groomed a little and some time in the minors won’t hurt, viagra drug interaction” the first scout added.

Viagra drug interaction Central Scouting Report (Rated #41 among North American skaters):
Is a good skater with good speed, viagra drug interaction balance and leg strength who is solid on his feet … he possesses very good hands and playmaking abilities handling the puck well in tight quarters and protecting it well … he is especially effective on the power play, viagra drug interaction reads the play well, viagra drug interaction feeding teammates with accurate passing and has very good scoring instincts … his wrist shot is quick and accurate … is quick to jump on any loose pucks around the net and can score in many ways … has very good hockey sense and is used to kill penalties … competes offensively, viagra drug interaction his positioning in defensive zone is solid and he will not hesitate to go on offense quickly … Baie-Comeau’s 1st pick, viagra drug interaction 20th overall, viagra drug interaction in the 2004 QMJHL Draft … was selected to play in the 2006 Top Prospects Game in Ottawa … also selected to the 2005-06 QMJHL All-Star Game for the Canada-Russia challenge.

Baby on viagra Yes, baby on viagra the New York Rangers are back in town after a seven game road trip that spanned two continents, baby on viagra games in six different countries, baby on viagra and according to Andrew Gross of The Record, baby on viagra about 16, baby on viagra000 frequent flyer miles earned. Baby on viagra And after one home game, baby on viagra it appears that the Rangers inability to make Madison Square Garden a home-ice advantage has returned to town as well.

Baby on viagra Including last night’s game, baby on viagra the Blueshirts are 38-35-10 at home. Baby on viagra Conversely, baby on viagra during the last two years plus their first five home games this season (3-2-0), baby on viagra the New York Islanders are 43-34-10 at home.

Baby on viagra Referring to his .500 squad the coach said, baby on viagra “I think we’re a work in progress and we’re going to get better. Baby on viagra There are certain parts of our game that I like, baby on viagra other parts that we need to focus on and improve. Baby on viagra Every team goes through that and we’re no different than anybody else.”

Baby on viagra You have to admit that statement pretty much sums up the state of the Rangers as they stand 3-3-2 after their first eight games. Baby on viagra The interesting point is that statement was not uttered by John Tortorella, baby on viagra nor is the team in question the New York Rangers.

Baby on viagra That quote is from Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault and was made to Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun on October 16 after the Western Conference champions had played their first five games.

Baby on viagra My reason for using that quote is simple – the Rangers are going through the same rough patch that every team goes through. Baby on viagra My concern is not with the results, baby on viagra but rather with the how the Rangers are getting there.

Baby on viagra Larry Brooks of the NY Post summed up the problem with the Rangers in the lead of his Maple Leafs-Rangers game story, baby on viagra “The Rangers have done nothing yet to identify themselves as heirs to the 2010-11 Black-and-Blueshirts.”

Baby on viagra If John Davidson were still broadcasting games for the MSG Network, baby on viagra he would remind fans of how teams struggle in the first game back from a long road trip – and they don’t get much longer than 16, baby on viagra000+ miles.

Baby on viagra Personally I always felt that ”adage” was just an excuse for a team not getting the job done, baby on viagra but this year might be a different case because the seven-game road trip was not your standard long road trip. Baby on viagra Even the “first-game-back-from-a-long-road-trip” blues was not standard.

Baby on viagra After struggling to generate shots, baby on viagra never mind goals, baby on viagra the Rangers were flying in the first period and could have been up 3-0 if not for the two disallowed goals. Baby on viagra Given how the Blueshirts lit up Jonas Gustavsson the last time he played at the Garden, baby on viagra the game could have had a far different outcome.

Baby on viagra When you combine the disallowed goals with an inconsistent second and third period from Henrik Lundqvist, baby on viagra you have the recipe for an Opening Night loss.

Baby on viagra What concerns me the most about last night’s loss was how the team lost focus – a fact that Tortorella and Lundqvist both readily admitted.

Baby on viagra “I was a little surprised on a couple goals, baby on viagra” Lundqvist told Steve Zipay of Newsday. Baby on viagra “I wasn’t as sharp as I needed to be mentally.”

Baby on viagra In his post-game press conference the Coach confessed, baby on viagra “I think physically we were lethargic and mentally we were lethargic.”

Baby on viagra Tortorella has gone out of his way to treat the Rangers European vacation as he would any other road trip in an attempt to prevent the team from using it as an excuse for a slow start. Baby on viagra

Baby on viagra You have to wonder did the Rangers globetrotting did take a lot out of them, baby on viagra is it just one game, baby on viagra or are the problems deeper than some expected?

Baby on viagra While the Rangers did win three of their four games on the trip to western Canada, baby on viagra they didn’t exactly play awe-inspiring hockey for most of those games.

Baby on viagra Elliotte Friedman of CBC.ca made an interesting point in an October 17 column about giving a team 10 games into a season to sort things out.

Baby on viagra A few years ago, baby on viagra Friedman said an anonymous GM told him, baby on viagra “I believe in the 10-game rule. Baby on viagra You don’t get a true sense of a team in the first 10 games. Baby on viagra I don’t put too much into a hot or cold start.”

Baby on viagra Recently, baby on viagra that GM amended his belief given the advent of points being awarded for overtime and shootout losses.

Baby on viagra The GM told Friedman, baby on viagra “With the three-point games, baby on viagra teams can’t win the Stanley Cup in the first 10 games of the season, baby on viagra” he said. Baby on viagra “But they sure can lose it that quickly.”

Baby on viagra Given the Rangers penchant for life-and-death struggles at the end of the season just to make the playoffs, baby on viagra it would be nice to bank some points early in the season to lessen the pressure late in the season

Baby on viagra SEAN AVERY

Baby on viagra I have tried to steer clear of the Sean Avery Situation because it is quite the polarizing subject – which is amazing given that he is a third/fourth liner player at best.
I find it amusing how some Ranger fans have elevated Avery’s demotion to the point of it being on par with, baby on viagra or an even greater affront to Ranger fandom, baby on viagra than the waiving of Eddie Giacomin 36 years ago this Halloween and the trading of Brad Park and Jean Ratelle to the Boston Bruins about a week later.

Baby on viagra It is kind of interesting that the pain that the pro-Avery fans are suffering is only matched by the hatred they have towards Tortorella for banishing Avery to the AHL. Baby on viagra This is the same Sean Avery that 29 teams passed on before he was sent to the AHL. Baby on viagra This is the same Sean Avery that 29 teams passed on when the Rangers claimed him re-entry waivers.

Baby on viagra Does Avery deserve a spot on the Rangers ahead of the likes of Erik Christensen and Kris Newbury? Absolutely, baby on viagra but there are a million reasons why Christensen is here ahead of Avery and about 1.4 million reasons why Newbury is here ahead of Avery. Baby on viagra If you substitute dollars for reasons, baby on viagra you have one answer as to why Avery is skating in the AHL.

Baby on viagra Of course, baby on viagra the fact that Avery and Tortorella are like motor oil and water plays a big part as well. Baby on viagra It is not the first time a coach has banished a player to the AHL for personal reasons and it sure won’t be the last.

Baby on viagra Ranger fans should be more upset with Torts over his opinion on Paul Mara than on Avery. Baby on viagra Given the uncertain future of Marc Staal, baby on viagra Mara fills the Rangers need better than Avery does and Mara is a much better solution than Jeff Woywitka, baby on viagra Brendan Bell or even Anton Stralman – who may or may not be a Rangers target.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra I know it may seem a bit unusual to write a New York Rangers season preview two games into the 2011/2012 season, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra but the Rangers are a very unusual team – as any diehard Blueshirts fan will tell you.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The start of the season ends a whirlwind summer that saw Glen Sather’s under-the-radar pursuit of Brad Richards pay off. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra It also ends an off-season filled with tragedy as the Rangers family lost Derek Boogaard, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Alexander Karpovtsev, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Karel Rachunek, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra and Jan Marek.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The Richards’ signing goes beyond finding a center for Marian Gaborik and solving the Rangers power play woes. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Richards brings a veteran presence who knows how Coach John Tortorella operates.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra “To see how Torts operates, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra I know it works, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra” Richards relayed to Chuck Gormley in 2011/2012 Sporting News Hockey Yearbook. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra “It reminds me of what we did in Tampa. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra At the end of the day, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra it’s the right fit for me.”

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra While Richards knows what to expect from the coach, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Tortorella knows what the Conn Smythe Trophy winner brings to the team.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra “We’ve got guys on the cusp of learning what they need to do as a pro, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra” the coach explained to Gormley. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra “Forget about what the stats are. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Mentoring and teaching kids to be a pro – I think that’s going to be very important. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra He fits the bill there.”

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Just when everything seemed to be getting back to normal as the Rangers hit the ice, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra the Marc Staal Saga came to the forefront. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Questions still swirl as to whether or not Staal is suffering from post-concussion syndrome or if there is some other physical ailment that is causing his symptoms.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra As we have seen with the problems Sidney Crosby has had recovering from his post-concussion problems, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Staal’s return is an open-ended proposition.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Staal’s situation caused a butterfly effect that saw Tim Erixon’s seasoning in the AHL put on hold, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra the Rangers claiming of defenseman Jeff Woywitka off waivers and, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra perhaps in the most talked about move in years, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra the waiving and demotion of Sean Avery to the Connecticut Whale.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The Internet was afire with the talk of Avery’s demotion with half the fans content to be done with Avery’s antics and half being upset that Avery was kicked to the curb in favor of Erik Christensen.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The pro-Avery faction railed against Tortorella’s dislike for all things Avery – which began back during Avery’s “sloppy seconds” days when Torts was a broadcaster. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Contrary to the belief of Avery’s fans, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Tortorella is not the first coach, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra nor will he be the last, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra to “run off” a player because of personality conflicts.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Taking a step back and looking at the move with an objective eye, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra the decision really wasn’t so much Avery over Christensen. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra It was Michael Rupp and Wojtek Wolski over Avery. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Rupp replaces the physical presence that Avery (and Boogaard) brought while Wolski’s $3.8 million salary means the Rangers could not afford to keep Avery’s nearly $2 million contract as a bench player – while Christensen’s $925, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra000 salary is much more manageable from the press box.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The Rangers will remain a team in flux until Staal returns to the lineup on a permanent basis and until Tortorella finds a LW for Richards and Gaborik. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra During their two game trip to Europe, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Torts tried everyone but Martin Biron on their wing. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra He even broke up his two star forwards in an attempt to find some offense.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra This search for offense is one that is going to continue throughout the season unless they improve two parts of their game. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Obviously, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra the Rangers moribund power play continued to rear its ugly head in Europe as they went zero for eight.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra All the talk of need a QB for the power play or anointing Richards as the savior of the man advantage means nothing until the Rangers start stationing a man in front of the net and raining shots ON goal (not at goal or near the goal).

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Without that man parked at the top of the crease (thus tying up one of the penalty killers), 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra the Rangers power play is content to work the perimeter – which would be fine of you had Al MacInnis and Bobby Hull firing howitzers from the point.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Last year the Rangers finished with 233 goals, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra good for 16th in the NHL. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Their power play was ranked 18th in the NHL (16.9%). 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra If the Rangers could have manage even seven more PP goals last year, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra they would have finished with a Top Ten PP and, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra in the right situations, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra could have added a few more points – thus allowing the Rangers some breathing room in terms of making the playoffs.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Another way the Rangers can generate some offense is to pick up their forechecking – a part of their game that was almost as inconsistent as their PP. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The Rangers have the type of forwards who excel at a putting pressure on the forecheck when they are focused at pinning their opponents.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The Blueshirts goal (pun intended) should be to add 13 goals to their total of last season. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra That would boost the team to 246 goals for an average of three goals per game. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra That might not seem like a lot, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra but only seven teams score that many goals and Buffalo finished with 245.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra We are now entering the Foxwoods Final Five paragraphs ?

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The 2010/2011 Rangers were road warriors last season which was very important given that they had the fewest amount of home points for any playoff team, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra as both Carolina and New Jersey had more than New York’s 44 and Toronto tied them.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra With Madison Square Garden’s renovations keeping the Rangers on the road until the 8th game of the season on October 27 – including a four-game/eight-day Western Conference trip – the Blueshirts will have to convert last year’s success to this year. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra However, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra a quirk in the schedule will require the Rangers to turn the refurbished Garden into a Garden of Nightmares for opponents.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Both of the Rangers games in Europe were counted as road games while the Anaheim and Buffalo were “charged” with one home games and Los Angeles lost two home games because, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra as Andrew Gross of The Record reported, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra the Kings owner AEG owns the arenas in Stockholm and Berlin. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Yet another plus that Gross points out is that the Rangers will not have to make a California trip this season.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra With expectations high for the Rangers, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra Sather and Tortorella are not going to be as forgiving to players who are not producing. 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The one thing the Rangers learned from the Traverse City Prospects Tournament is that the organization has young talent in the AHL that can come up to New York and make an impact.

0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra The team has shown that they are not afraid to bury contracts in the AHL (Avery and Wade Redden) or buy out ineffective players (Chris Drury). 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra With the team searching for a LW for Richards and Gaborik, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra and the possibility of needing an impact blueliner to take Staal’s place, 0rz.tw 762c3 generic viagra it is not out of the realm of possibility that Wolski hits the Connecticut shuttle – thus freeing up his salary cap space – while someone like Ryan Bourque or Carl Hagelin gets a chance to be this season’s Derek Stepan.
