NEWS: Michael Sauer Has A Concussion

John Tortorella tells Andrew Gross that Michael Sauer suffered a concussion as a result of Dion Phaneuf’s hit on Monday night.

He is day to day

Well that isn’t good news. It doesn’t mean he is out for an extended amount of time like Marc Staal has been, but the Rangers are likely to be without Sauer for a little while.

What does this mean for the defense? Well, I think you need to consider splitting up Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh to give more support to Michael Del Zotto and Steve Eminger. Anton Stralman will get some time paired with Jeff Woywitka it seems like, but it will be interesting to see how much ice time they end up getting.

You people are obsessed with Isiah Thomas. When was the last time you wrote about Marv Albert? He's back in basketball. Is this not "a matter of public concern"? He's just not "charismatic" or "interesting" enough right?

Rick Carlisle, a well respected coach, called the journalism here "a cesspool". Every writer feels that he or she has to bathed their work in negativity, soap opera type "stories" to create a sense of dysfunction surrounding the local team, while feeding the perceived biases and prejudices of consumers.

There is a better way. A way that both preserves the integrity of the local team you feed off of, while also writing interesting stuff. Get out of the cesspool; and find some fresh water.

@RivDim Marv Abert was discussed, he was also fired and never returned to the Knicks. Completely different story with Thomas.  (who happens to be very charismatic- are you high?)

Also has it occurred to you that WE are the media now? I'm not sure Rick Carlisle in rallying his team knows f-all about "the NY Media" as opposed to the Dallas or Detroit media.

You're reply failed in it's attempts to address the concerns of my post. If you're not high, it may be that you're a poor reader at this time of day.
