Well if he does indeed sign a PTO with Hartford before a contract is announced, you have to figure that it'll only be a matter of time before it's off

I agree, sooner than later or every day that goes by decreases the likelihood. Gotta be on the ice to keep up this time of year.

Minor nit, but it would be an ATO not a PTO. I'd think that the ATO and the announcement of the ELC would come at the same time... no need for them to

Is K'Andre Miller playing his way on to the team?

DQ: "Yes, he is. He just moves so well and takes up so much space. He’s got such a long reach. He closes on people quickly. His puck decisions, to me, have really been the surprise – to all of us."

His competition other than Lindgren is non existent. I don't think they want to put TDA on the left side if they can avoid it. So, maybe they will roll the dice on Miller. Still say a year in the AHL would be great. I heard they wanted to sign Schneider but couldn't. Says a lot about what they think of his skill.

Miller certainly sounds like he's impressing everyone. Definitely an intriguing prospect to keep an eye on, and I hope he does make it to the big team for opening night

Looks like he is a lock, practicing with Trouba. Another who has impressed is Buchnevich, Quinn with a lot of good things to say. You could see his game take off the second half of last season. He was starting to show some power to his game. The finesse was always there the physicality a bit of a surprise but very welcome. I think Buchnevich is going to have a hell of a year.

I am a bit concerned that this season being all divisional play that we have enough muscle in the line up to protect our skilled players...Any thoughts?

Well their defense looks to be okay with Miller, Trouba and DeAngelo...could use some more grit in the forward ranks, but not really any options in the roster right now

They are very lacking in physical players.Very disappointed with Davidson in that area.Whether as a player,announcer,or executive,it's something he's always been a fan of.Seems to have forgotten that since his return here.

My thoughts are if Kreider, Lafreniere, Rooney, Howden, Lemieux, De Giuseppe, Trouba, Miller, DeAngelo, Lindgren, Miller, Smith and or Johnson can play a heavy game they should be fine.

While I agree, Mac, I am willing to give JD the benefit of the doubt. The type of players needed don't grow on trees....If I recall correctly (and I could be wrong), he drafted those players in St. L. and Columbus. I think we've seen evidence of the Rangers starting to draft the same way.

As for the current lineup, the really wasn't much he could do roster wise, especially with the bad contracts still weighing us down. While ridding us of the Staal, Shatty and Henrik contracts, it cost us a lot of cap space and maneuverability -- fortunately, the effect is not long term. NExt season he will have way more flexibility to make necessary moves. He will also have a much better idea regarding certain players on the current roster (Howden, Chytl, Buch, etc.)

Incorrect. For starters defenseman were bouncing off of Kakko after about 50 games as he started to get his strength up. Lafeniere is a nasty player and it doesn't get talked about enough. Lindgren, Trouba and Lemieux are all physical players. Kreider is as well when the refs aren't crying about it. The Lightning were not a physical team at all and they won the cup. They added Rooney. Barron should be up soon enough. Miller will figure out how to hammer people soon enough. The game is more about skill and strength now. I don't give a crap about a nasty player if he doesn't have a hockey IQ and has some skill. I'd rather have a d man that can efficiently clear the crease than put somebody in the trainers room. Quite honestly, the team was an embarrassment on the forecheck in the playoffs. They were slow and clueless and it lost them that series more than anything.

The Lightning weren't a physical team at all last year? Do you even watch hockey? It was 2020 last year, not 2015.

Don't feel like checking on their roster from last year,but the Lightning only won a Cup after they added guys like Maroon,Schenn,and a few others that brought the toughness level up.

You obviously don't watch hockey. The Lightning are not a physical team. They players mentioned below in Schenn and Maroon are players that barely play. The Lightning won the cup because of solid goaltending and Point, Kucherov and Hedman. Added toughness was not why they won the cup. They added speed role players to help on the PK and their forecheck. Schenn played in only 11 playoff games and was on the ice for about 10 minutes. Maroon played about 12 minutes. Goodrow played 18 minutes. Coleman played almost 18 minutes. Also, Hedman last season was hurt, played 2 playoff games and could barely skate in them. The Lightning would have won nothing if Hedman was in the same condition this year as he was last year in the playoffs.

If you actually watched the Lightning with your eyes open, the Lightning were incredibly diminshed when Point was not playing or was out there and was playing hurt enough to not be himself. He's 5'10 and is 166 pounds. The Lightning clearly weren't beating the Islanders without Point. That was obvious. The difference in the Lightning this year and the previous year was a healthy Hedman and more speed with their role players who chipped in.


The Rangers getting swept by the Canes had absolutely nothing to do with physical play. Hank stunk the first 2 games. Their defenseman turned the puck over way too much. Their forecheck was a disgrace. The Canes did the same thing over and over. As soon as they got the puck in their zone they blindly threw it out along the boards over and over and over and the Rangers didn't adjust one time to it.

The Islanders because of their 4th line were a much more physical team than Tampa by a lot. It's also the reason the Islanders were dead after about game 60. Playing that style wore the team out and got them a lot of injuries. They were lucky covid saved their season. The Lightning are also lethal on the PP. It's a big reason they win a ton of games. People put way too much into that team winning in the playoffs because they added a couple of role players. Hedman healthy was the number 1 reason they didn't fall on their face like last year. Also, they changed their system. They were much more patient at even strength.

I didn’t see Schenn doing much of anything last year. Filled a sixth hole the little he played and nobody was avoiding him. In today’s NHL the bar for tough, is guys that will compete and won’t be intimidated. And most do that because there is no law of the jungle anymore. Ranger D is going to be the most physical since Beuk was around, DeAngelo, Smith, Trouba, Lindgren and hopefully Miller all will battle. I don’t see any issues with the Rangers ability to compete. The only change I’d like to see is Rooney or Lemieux with Chytil and Lafreniere to start, just to intercede if another team tries to get Lippy. Big important years for some of the young Rangers that have been hanging around the last couple seasons. Role defining time,
