John Tavares is skating with former junior team

John Tavares is skating with the London Knights of the OHL as they prepare for the Memorial Cup. (Shannon, May 9)

Tavares played 24 games for London, scoring 32 goals and 18 assists, after being traded from Oshawa in his final season in the OHL in 2008-09.

 He was cleared to begin skating last week.

Tavares tore his medial collateral ligament and meniscus in his left knee during the Olympics. He did not have surgery.

The way San Jose gave up do not be surprised if there if there is a lot of moves  this summer.Best time to shop when Teams are in a bad position .I am sure we can use one of their Players.Look what Vancouver did when forced to change a Team . Mike Milbury are you advising Vancouver?  Gibson play proves what I have said  all along, there is a ship load of talent in the Juniors ,College and A.H l . Young and Talented Goalies are begging for there turn to play.

I really don't hate the Rags like I used to 20+ yrs ago. I mean even the games Isles play against them aren't heated at all.Not to mention the Isles haven't been relevant in years. I actually hate Pitt & Boston. Rags not so much anymore.W/ that said I'm pulling for Rags. Thanks Wang.PS.....Hey Garth what's up w/ Halak???

If you guys check out YouTube. Type in rob dimaio fights. And check out some of his scraps pounded the daylights out of leach from bost Dimaio was a small guy but he could scrap. His days in medicine hat were outstanding. Power packed player. He's now player dev for stlouis

Bib Mackenzie was saying on tsn that niño fell out if favor with mgmt. and minny didn't want to pay clutter is deal so a trade was made. Jt91 wanted cal on the team. They played junior together. So that's how the trade played out

Hamonic would be the rags 5th dman. Hes our no.1 and the rags arent world beaters but the thought of looking at strait hickey a shaky donovan an ofter hurt dehaan gets me depressed.

  Its all about goaltending. Like i commented several times during the season if the Islanders had Lundquist as their goaltender and the Rangers had Nabakov/Poulan the Islanders would be playing Pittsburg and the Rangers would be picking 5th.  I think Pittsburg will win game 7. Some players on Pittsburg are due to explode.

The thought of our arch rivals being only 9 wins away from winning the cup gives me the willys.

even the ranger pp looks better than pitt's right now, just to show how that can go.  lundqvist made a nice save near the end but really pitt never set up in the offensive zone and he had a comfortable night.

the only case i can make for pitt right now is that even up 3-1 they knew the series could well go seven and they're prepared for this.  but even that's a stretch.  even when they won it was the rangers playing down and not really pitt playing up.  they'll give up goals in game seven.

@dimaio34 Not here.  He really has no value other than taking stupid penalties and fighting for no reason.  Loved what he did against the Pens.  Let that be part of his legacy here and that's it.

@dimaio34

Forget Haley, he was a fan favorite until he threw his chance to play away by signing with the hated Rangers who saw fit to sit his arse for the entire season.

@dimaio34  Good information Dimaio thank you. I also heard the part about JT wanting Clutterbuck.

That all seems plausible to me. And they probably felt getting his buddy from juniors would take the sting out from not wanting to pay Moulson in JTs eyes.

Pitts loses game 7. Their time is up. If bost wins and nyr win. Bost goes to the cup. If mont wins. Mont goes to the cup. I'm just laughing at Pitt. You can see how their window is closing. All the talk of the two headed monster. Not anymore. I feel mont wins the east

I disagree our dmen arent very good. Mcd girardi staal are way better than anything we have imo.

@orange2327    Don't worry Orange. The difference between Boston and Pittsburg is Pittsburg doesn't want to break a nail when playing these games. Boston will flatten Martin St Louis, Zuccarello, and any other player on the Rangers that they need to. I'll start worrying if Montreal comes back against Boston.

You know the rags defense is light years ahead of ours. Its just a fact and they arent lapointe robinson potvin savard but they get the job done.

You see when you have solid dmen and a good goalie you can compete even with no shows on offense.

Pittsburgh aint what they used to be. Just a thought watching them, brett sutter is very good player but I think they miss jordan staal. I think he was very tight with crosby and malkin and was huge in 2008/09. Imo.

@orange2327   Your right the Rangers have better defenseman but Lundquist would cover up a lot of the islanders defensive liabilities.

And stralman is pretty good too. And remember they grabbed him on a camp invite, the same time we gave one to staios.

@orange2327  and they do have some offense that shows up, even if it's not the most highly touted guys.  now it's eight goals in the last five periods. i've seen the rangers lose games that i have no idea how they lost, but imo you can see that if they gain confidence they're hard to beat, by anybody.

I think you are right unless crosby wakes up the rags are throwing a blanket around him.

If you watched tonites game look at the play girardi made late in the3rd that was a wonderful sweep check.

@orange2327  i'm not a boyle fan, but the brassard/pouliot/zuccarello line seems key to me.  i think pouliot was a $1.2mil free agent...

The rags have good foot soldiers like dominic moore brassard boyle etc.
