And it doesn't not seem to matter WHO is on this team, WHO we bring in. Player after player, year after year. They ALL have the same philosophy. Pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, NEVER SHOOT. I have been screaming about this as far back as 2004 that I can remember, but I know it's been bad before that.

Am I crazy here?? Does any player who puts on a New York Rangers jersey immediately become a passing never shooting machine?? Why can't this organization get it into their head that traffic in front, screening, even the occasional storming of the net might actually work if they just gave it a try?

I give up.
05-06 and 06-07, NYR's PP was 8th in the NHL. The highest we've ranked since then was in 09-10 at 13th.

Our PP has either sucked or been half-decent at best since Jagr left.
