Practice: Henrik Lundqvist On The Ice/Now Marty Biron

10:53AM: Brett Cyrgalis says that Henrik Lundqvist was the first goalie off the ice which should indicate that he is starting tonight.

10:52AM: Pat Leonard notes that Stu Bickel may return to the lineup tonight as Steve Eminger and Matt Gilroy are staying on the ice to skate.

10:44AM: Gross now adds that Martin Biron is on the ice.

10:33AM: According to Andrew Gross, Henrik Lundqvist is the only goalie on the ice at Rangers practice.

That could indicate that Martin Biron will start tonight.

Gross adds that Matt Gilroy, Steve Eminger, Benn Ferriero, Jeff Halpern and Stu Bickel are on the ice as well.

On this blog I kept hearing "He has a plan!!"  To do what? Make the team crappier? If all twelve of Idjit's picks were cut tomorrow, I could care less. He was the worst GM this team ever had. When he dies I'm gonna spit on his obituary. I still hate him.

Fonzie is Right!!

Sign Wilkerson, Get rid of Richardson, play Play Harrison and Coples on the Line,  and Develop Williams!!!

I would have traded a 2017 7th for lee....wonder if mac was in on it at all

@carlhungus


The only reason I'd say we probably wouldn't be interested is that Lee earns like $3m a year and with Folk already earning $4m a year I don't think this team can afford the luxury of spending $7m on the kicking game, especially when that's becoming marginalized.

It clearly says he's an NFL kicker, which qualifies him to have an informed opinion on the matter.

@Brendan @Disgruntled Jets Fan


Well, soccer fans the world over laugh at us for calling what we play on the gridiron 'football', and they have a point.    The name is a total misnomer because we really don't play football with our feet, except kickers, which is a relatively minor part of the game to begin with and is getting more so all the time.   Rugby players might call it 'wussyball' because we play with so much protective gear.   


Powerball.   Smackball.   Crashball.   Concussionball.   Movethebleepin'chainsball.

@jetsjerk Go tell Nick Mangold or Sheldon Richardson that they play "wussyball." We'll wait.

Extra points and kickoffs could go away eventually, I don't think punts and FG are going anywhere soon

The 49ers LT is taking a couple years off from football to heal his body and mind. They are leaving San Fran at an incredible rate. Hard to blame Harbough for everything now. My god that team fell apart fast. To bad, they were fun to watch.

Brendan

@levi  Anthony Davis is their RT, fyi. Their LT is is Joe Staley, who is one of the best T's in football (Davis is solid, but nothing special).

@Hanknaples What's that? You're a big fan of a guy who has never been a head coach before simply because he hired Eric Mangini as a coordinator? I, for one, am shocked.

@Hanknaples The Niners just traded a pro bowl punter so they could start a rookie. 


They have had the worst offseason I can remember. Good god.

Where are the #FIREIDZIK guys when you need them...they should be flying a banner with SIGN WILKERSON NOW !!

His signing is critical to the Identity and Bonding of the team which is absolutely essential to its overall success!!

I don't trust the team getting its Identity from Mouths like Colon, Richardson or Pryor.....Baaaad News!!!

Brendan
Brendan

@Hanknaples You root for Miami. You actively hype up the shttiest players on that roster as being better than their Jets counterparts. 


Please answer the following question. 


Who is better at their position: Earl Mitchell or Sheldon Richardson. 

jetsjerk

@Hanknaples No worries at all.  He wants to be here, brass wants him here, fans love him here.  He'll be here!  Just the dough and greedy agents issues to work out.  NP. It gets worked out Hank.  Remember, they did right by signing Harris.

Hanknaples
Hanknaples

@jetsjerk

Here's the problem and call me a Jets hater but why is it always the "other" guys fault ?

The agent is there to protect the players interest  and that is the way it should be! 

The bottom line is how tough you want to make (squeeze) the negotiations and ultimately it winds up WITHIN Market value......Wilkerson has stated he is a Jet and wants forever to be a Jet!!

So lets pay him fairly and forget all these "HOME DISCOUNTS" you always hear about!


jetsjerk
jetsjerk

@Hanknaples @jetsjerk It's just business Hank.  Why pay 25% more for an organic apple at whole Foods when they have the same apple at Costco for less? (apples to apple, that is)

It's just a bean counters game at this juncture,.I don't think they are asking for a home discount at all.  But certainly, Mos' value needs to be ascertained by both sides of the negotiotions table.  And, I agree, the agent should work for his client, but his commission is based on the highest number he can get.  And therefore, that's basically where the delays come from.


As for your other mention, are you a Jets hater?  Someone said you were a Miami fan on this Blog, but I thought they were just poking fun.  You're really a Jets fan, right?

brendan

Pryor? God, you are the worst trl.

Hanknaples

@jetsjerk

I agree with you...specially on Organic stuff! Besides being OVER priced I don't believe in that stuff being better for you...and (believe it or not) it's worse for the environment!!!

Anyway, it is a fact football is a business but we must NOT forget it is a sport first and foremost!! Businesses don,t have Championship Trophies and the bottom line is just that...getting one of those!!!

The problem is the business connotation is taking front and Center and it's MUCH More pronounced (I believe) since Woody took over!!

What my concern is that the team is at a crossroads and FINALLY heading in the right direction and for the FO to take the same old dysfunctional business approach is a HUGE Mistake right now!!

In my opinion the EXCUSE of "It's a business" is used by teams incompetent in growing new Talent to replace players that try to set NEW Ceilings with their demands !!

In my opinion, MoWilk is absolutely NOT one of those players !!!

@jetsjerk Yes, he is. He's also a Bucs, Niners, Browns and (before they hired Rex) a Bills fan.

"Is Hanknaples a Miami fan?  I asked and he avoided the question."

So now i'm asking JUST ONE: is it ok to FOLLOW another team???

Are you that miserable when the Jets are NOT playing....football is dead to you ? Your football friends never invite you to watch NON Jet games, correct ??

jetsjerk

@Hanknaples @jetsjerk Of course, I live in Alaska.  HOWEVER, i NEED TO KNOW BASED ON YOUR STATUS AS A FAN OR NOT HOW TO WEIGHT YOUR OPINIONS.  You can like the Jets, Miami and the Bills...but you can't like the Pats.  Please don't tell me that!

You know what I mean Hank?

Brendan
Brendan

@Hanknaples I watch more football games than most people. I'm a fan of the sport and the league itself. You can keep tabs on other teams without rooting for them. You root for Miami to win football games, which means you can't be a Jets fan. You can't root for two teams that are decades-old division rivals.

@Hanknaples Incorrect. I watch two uniforms I don't root for play each other with lots of interest. Because, as I literally just said to you, I love football. I get enjoyment out of watching it objectively, as do literally millions of other people. 


You don't get to root for multiple teams, that makes you a frontrunner and a fake fan.

@jetsjerk

Completely HATE THE PATS...I'm glad we understand each other!!!

I also DESPISED The Dolphins since they came into the NFL.....Specially during the Shula days!!

But I follow Miami since The Jets threw Pennington under the Bus and I now follow the Bills with interest cause I would loooove to see Sexy Rexy CRY with another teams Uniform On !!!

But you know what...That is not good enough for Brendan and His Acolytes !!!

I've followed Gates since he was drafted AND I always maintained a) He NEVER had the QB  b) Nor the OC to develop his skills, although he had INCREDIBLE Metrics....best on the team !!

and I'll say it again....Sheldon Richardson won DROY because of Rexy and his Hype!! This year will be the Year he MUST Match his OWN hype and His MOUTH !!!

But if you can,  this is real stuff to the point that it's Legally safe and allowable!! It's a Family (7kids) that moved from the "Lower 49" to live in the bush!! It's fascinating!!
