Well the drama heats up. Larry Brooks has brought it to attention that Brodeur was running his mouth in a very Avery like fashion, calling Lundqvist "weird" and mentioned he didn't "like" Hanks's style.
Well if Broduer is referring to Hanks's 11-2-3 career record against the senior netminder well then that is weird. And if it is the style that has powered Hank to 6-0-0 agaisnt the Devils this year I can see why Brodeur wouldn't like it. But really the childish bickering about Hank not shaking his hand at the award ceremony, what grade is Brodeur in? As a goalie I would say he is Grade A, its the truth, but as a human being... Hank replied to Brooks's comments well and hopefully will let his game play provide the real answer tonight. As it always seems the Rangers are facing one of their toughest opponents at a time when they can least afford to lose. If you look at the previous couple of posts you will see that the Rangers have faired remarkably well and turned their season on some big wins verse the Devils. But the question is how long can this go on? For the Islanders it was the seventh game that did it. So will it be seventh heaven for the Rangers tonight?
Last post I looked at some aging forwards on the team whose futures are undecided. Now I want to look at the defensive corps. This time the problem is strictly free agency as the Rangers have a very young defense. The four up for free agency right now are Mara, Malik, Strudwick and Rozsival.
