I don't know either. I guess he isn't showing us what we need after a total of what, 10 NHL games. Half the board wants a full blown rebuild but lack the patience to give guys a chance to make some mistakes. If these dumb rookies would just stop screwing up they would be stars already, can't they figure it out?
Oh, and there is a little speedbump when it comes to resting 5-8 players, and that's a roster limit. Unless we put 4-7 guys on IR, don't expect too many call ups. I don't think we recalled anyone for Prucha yet, so that is one spot. Unless Kasper, Jagr and somebody else needs up to a week off (less with a retro active placement on IR) we can't possibly call up much else. I guess its possible to scratch Jagr in favor of Orr but I hear the Ranger brass doesn't want the HFboards to crash from the sheer glee of the NYR posters.
