[QUOTE=Kafka;60369659]Don't want to act like a troll here, but I watched the game yesterday, and I was astonished - in a negative way - by Richards' game. The guy reminded me a lot of Mark Messier... when he was 40 and couldn't skate anymore.

Hopefully, NYR players are currently sending the message that Tortorella's days as the coach should come to an end. It's hard to understand how this team, who was supposed to win easily it's division title, will just struggle to earn a playoff spot. Having such an uneffective PP with 2 40 goals scorers, and one of the best puck mover in the league is inconceivable.[/QUOTE]

Therein lies your problem you are greatly overexaggerating the talent we have. Nash is a 30-35 goal scorer. Gabs is still coming off that shoulder I guarantee it (plus he's just older) and did you REALLY just give Richards that label? Should our PP be better? Oh HELL yea. But we also have to be a little more realistic about what we have in some of these players
