    Enjoying the ride and talking about playoffs (PLAYOFFS?!) with Connor Rogers

    This week, Connor Rogers from Bleacher Report joins the show to discuss the Rangers' hot start. Though his NFL Draft expertise is what pays the bills, Connor is a rabid Rangers fan with unique perspectives on everything from the what's made the rebuild successful to the positive impact that Ryan Reaves has had on the team this season.
    Becky, Dave and Rob also recap the Rangers' win over the shorthanded Islanders, and the Black Friday triumph over the Bruins. Hear why it's the bottom six, and particularly the third line, that has the crew dreaming of a deep playoff run this spring. Also, apparently Gallant is pronounced differently now? Crazy times.

    Sticking with Georgiev, and could the Rangers reunite with JT Miller?

    Sticking with Georgiev, and could the Rangers reunite with JT Miller?

    With the Rangers playing solid hockey and camping out near the top of the Metropolitan Division, the spotlight has shifted to the struggling Alexandar Georgiev. The Blueshirts' backup was pulled from his most recent start and looks like a goaltender whose confidence has been shaken. Unless Igor Shesterkin can play 64 games in a row (plus the Olympics!), the Rangers are going to need a resolution to the Georgiev situation. Becky, Rob and Dave discuss the merits of waiving Georgiev, or letting him play through his struggles.
    Then the gang dives into the trade market, as the Rangers figure to be involved heavily in a search for a middle six winger and defensive depth. Some interesting names came up, including that of former Ranger JT Miller. Could a reunion be in the offing?

    Will Kaapo Kakko and Alexis Lafreniere fulfill their potential?

    Will Kaapo Kakko and Alexis Lafreniere fulfill their potential?

    The Rangers righted the ship last weekend, with solid wins over Columbus and New Jersey. Becky, Rob and Dave recap the weekend back-to-back, and then dive into two pressing questions. First, will Kaapo Kakko and Alexis Lafreniere fulfill their potential, and what does it mean for the future of the franchise if they do? Also, what is Filip Chytil's best position moving forward, and how should the Rangers construct their lineup in the wake of the recent injury to Sammy Blais?

    How to fix the Rangers' broken offense, featuring Rob Luker

    How to fix the Rangers' broken offense, featuring Rob Luker

    The New York Rangers are broken, and we're going to fix them. Despite a 7-3-3 record, the team is struggling to generate offense and relying almost exclusively on Igor Shesterkin's heroics to secure points. On this week's episode of Live from the Blue Seats, Rob Luker joins the show to share his perspective on the team's early-season struggles, and offers some lineup suggestions that he believes will tip the scales back towards the Rangers.
    Becky and the Robs also break down the Rangers' last three games, discuss that insane McDavid goal, and share their favorite cocktails. We also hear from you, our loyal listeners, via Twitter.

    Adam Fox gets his bag

    Adam Fox gets his bag

    On this week's show, we bask in the glory of Adam Fox's newly-signed 7-year contract extension. Becky, Rob and Dave break down the contract (spoiler alert: it's all good news) and discuss how the contract fits into the bigger picture for the Rangers as they look to build a Stanley Cup contender. Also, the gang attempts to figure out why the Rangers have been so inconsistent to start the season, despite their 6-2-1 record.
    Lastly, the discussion turns to a much more serious subject: how the Chicago Blackhawks and the NHL failed Kyle Beach in 2010, and how they've continued to let him down. The response from Commissioner Gary Bettman in particular has been unacceptable.
