It's not going to work everytime but throw it at the net and get bodies into the dirty zones and muck it up. Even when it doesnt work it MAKES THE OTHER TEAM WORK HARDER AND WEARS THEM DOWN.
Rangers just make it to easy for the other teams to gameplan.
But Chariot, this is what the Rangers DO do. It's why each year under Torts they've gotten off to good starts. Then, as the season grinds on, other teams up their level of play and the constant need to work harder in order to win takes its toll on your OWN players. THEY get worn down during the course of the season.
At a certain point, you need to have at least close to the same level of talent as the top teams in order to beat them. You don't always have to have more pure talent; work ethic, game planning and chemistry can push you past a slightly better team. But if you aren't at least within the same ballpark, you're simply not going to be able to compete in the long run.
