The Rangers biggest problem in the first two games is overall team defense. The Rangers have let up a boat load of odd man rushes so far. That and when the D start to carry they puck out of the zone and make that first outlet, the forwards are on the other side of the red line. The forwards need to come back some more to they carry the puck up the ice with some momentum. That forces the other teams D to back into the zone. Several missed long passes have resulted in icing calls against the Rangers.

Not to mention you can tell which players played in another league during the lockout and who didn't. Those players seem to be two strides faster.

Richards and Nash have looked really good as has McD and Pyatt. I think once Staal, Girardi, and Gaborik get some more hard practices and games in they will be fine.
