SNYGiants insider Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News...."I haven't seen Will Beatty's deal yet, but I'm told his 2013 cap number is slightly more than $3.5 million -- very cap friendly. If that's right, the Giants would still be about $2M or so under the projected salary cap after the Beatty deal. They will need more room."
Paul Schwartz, NY Post....."Were those chants of "Cruuuz" at Knicks game or "Resign him" pleas?"

They are almost 30 minutes ahead of Marc Staal who is third on the list.
Harrison Mooney wonders at Puck Daddy if the Rangers will be able to win the Stanley Cup with their top two defensemen playing so much.

? New York Giants (@Giants) May 9, 2012The Giants are moving quickly to get their draft picks under contract ASAP. Yesterday, they inked 4th rounder Adrien Robinson and now it seems they have a hook into 6th rounder Matt McCants...
Giants close to agreement with their sixth-round pick, OL Matt McCants. Source says he'll likely sign when rookies report to camp Thursday.

The Rangers are slotted at 29th.
Kimelman has them taking Slater Koekkoek, a defenseman from Peterborough.
Tortorella responded with, "I saw it. I am not telling you but I have seen it the past few days."
Mike Rupp told Ranger Rants that the team has been loose as it prepares to defend the number one seed in the Eastern Conference, "Our room has been loose and it?s a confident group. We?re excited. I don?t know if that?s what he?s seeing. I guess you?d look to see if something was abnormal. But it?s the same jokes, the same stupid comments.?
What happens when two ex-Giants go at it in the 21st century? They engage in a battle on Twitter, what else?
Gary Myers of the NY Daily News reported that Shockey wanted to return to the Giants. Before Shockey could refute or validate the story, Toomer had chimed in on Twitter imploring the Giants to say no to Shockey and alleging that he was a "bad teammate and bad person."
At some point you have to stop changing things in terms of roster moves. Wait for Baron to come back and see what you have. Too much talent for this not to work.

Agreed 100%. I'm getting frustrated with poor efforts at home against inferior teams.

It seemed that way for me too. Rebounding and closing out possessions hasn't been good since pre-season. Maybe that's because it was the Nets.

This is the typical ride I?ve taken the last 5 years since I moved to New Jersey. It?s long but the train is much like the quiet before the storm, and I expect the energy in the building tonight to be as high as any home game this season. Additionally, I will be experiencing suite level treatment for the first time and the ticket is free, so there is no denying the expectations for tonight are high.
While riding the train, I often think about everything I love about being a hockey fan. Being a hockey fan for me (and probably most of you) is more than a rooting interest; it?s a commitment to a lifestyle. And if you are a Rangers fan, it?s a lifestyle born on traditions. Traditions that are celebrated by 18,200 people one night at a time.
