Stop collapsing on our own net, attack the points. Improve the transition. Move the puck, be creative.

While the roster may not currently possess the offensive competence of, say the Penguins, there is no excuse for such mediocrity in regards to offensive production. There is enough skill currently on the roster to produce enough to give the defense and Henrik enough cushion to shut the door on the opposition most nights. Keep the foot on the accelerator.

This is why Tortorella had to go. A new perspective. New philosophy. New voice. New way.

I really like Boucher. I want a young, smart, hungry coach. Someone that doesn't have to fake it. Someone who will earn everyone's respect because of the job he does. Plain and simple. No baggage. No gimmicks.
He had defenders on the forecheck all series against Boston. That's why the Rangers only had one guy back on defense so often.
