The team is not playing well and there is a lot of venting going on. I understand that, but there are some knee jerk reactions that are embarrassing.
Hank was never good enough? Really? All those top Vezina finalist were a mirage, the Vezina itself was a dream. I find it quite depressing that with all the years Hank has been the reason for the team making the playoffs, as soon as he struggles he gets thrown under the bus.
Blow up the team? Blow what up? This team is missing 3 key cogs, Callahan, Nash and Hagelin. Let's wait and see how this team plays with a full deck before jumping to conclusions. One of the issues I see, and there are many, is lot of people are playing out of position. Except Richards, everybody is at a 3rd/4th line player clip or worse. Tough to win with those.
Getting rid of the Pyatt, Moore, Powe would be a good start and replace them with Hrivik, Yogan those are good young/cheap bottom 6 players.
Full rebuild? You must be joking. You guys are giving up to rebuild after 7 games and you think you have the patience for a full rebuild?
The best thing to do it have some patience to see how this team plays until the deadline then make decisions. Right now everybody on the team is worth pennies on the dollar, it's the worst time to trade assets.
Again, I understand the need to vent because of the current product on the ice, but come on with the hyperbolas.
I'm not disagreeing with your overall opinion, but being that the only games you've watched were a 3-1 win over LA and a 2-0 win over WSH, you are LITERALLY the absolute least qualified person to comment on whether or not people are overreacting or to comment on the play of the Rangers so far this season.
You didn't watch 4-1, 9-2, 6-0, 5-3, and 4-0 losses. That's five games, in the first seven, with 4 or more goals allowed, with a differential of -20. Losing by an average of four goals, allowing an average of seven goals, having only had three forwards score for the team through seven games. If you're just looking at the record and the box score but not seeing the performance that's turned in DURING these losses, how can you possibly feel compelled to make a thread telling people who have watched all of the games to calm down?
