If there were any thoughts, any whatsoever, of becoming a seller this trade deadline, I think they were squashed when the Rangers won tonight. They may move out some pieces that are superflous or are ridiculous contracts, but they won’t be a barn burner in New York come 3pm tomorrow. Expect the Rangers to be buyers, and probably aggressive ones at that. The Rangers played an outstanding team game, limiting the opponents chances against us, while playing a strong “north american” type game. Honestly it looked a lot like the way Team USA played during the olympics, with the exception that we don’t have guys like Parise, Malone, Backes, Kane, Stastny, Kesler, Brown, etc, etc, etc. The Rangers though had their Olympian heart and soul player Ryan Callahan play an outstanding game to lead the Rangers to victory. It was an outstanding display by the Rangers winger. He showed skill, he showed grit, determination, his patented solid defensive play, and willingness to do anything to block a puck. It was a joy to watch the Rangers tonight. The question becomes, will they be a joy to watch after tomorrow. I suppose that depends on what happens. If I hear anything I will pass it on, otherwise I will be like all of you, clicking the refresh button like a mad man to see what all happens tomorrow.

Getting back to the game though, it was kind of awkward to see Enver Lisin play such a good game, despite being on waivers and him knowing there is a very good shot he will be on another team in less than 24 hours, or he will be in Hartford. Strange for him, but it was good to see him try to make a showing that other teams should take a flyer on the kid. I’ve been harsh on him because I think he lacks the hockey IQ to make it at this level, but you want to wish the kid well. He has never been a slacker, and as a Ranger fan, I consider that to be a huge bonus.

That’s all for now, let’s see what tomorrow brings.
