He is not to blame for all of this. Scoring goals hides alot of blemishes. But Hank is making a solid contribution to the recent problems.
Sure Hank is a part of it, but again its not the main problem. He doesn't need to be traded, the Rangers wouldn't be better off with another goaltender, etc. That is what people take exception to.
Again, scoring first and adding to that lead will resolve a majority of these problems. It's why the Capitals crash and burned in the playoffs, harder to score and didn't have that defensive ability -- now that they do and still have that offensive talent to win them close games, I think they go places this year.
