If you're going to lose anyway it's best to go down swinging. We're not going to go down swinging with the likes of Powe or Pyatt in the lineup and maybe a few others. Looking at a 9-2 loss followed up by a 6-0 loss and now a 4-0 loss to the last team in the league to win a game and it was like the team mailed in every single one of the above mentioned. Very pitiful. Generated almost no offense--made numerous turnovers (last night it was 9 Rangers to 0 Devils after the first period). This kind of effort against a team like the much hated Devils? It's like these guys are just giving these games away. It's ****ing lame and I can't stand to watch a team that doesn't or won't work hard. Fights might not win games but at least you have to show up for them or get your ass kicked. Seeing anyone show up right now would be a big improvement. That's an argument for Mashinter or Haley.

Richards is just about the only Rangers forward currently in the lineup that has played fairly well. Stepan has no goals 5 assists Brassard has no goals 4 assists. Zuccarello and Pouliot have neither scored nor assisted. These are our best offensive forwards of those who are healthy. 2 of them have to do more. The other 2 need to start doing something at all. This is an argument for Kreider, Hrivik or Kristo whether ready or not.

Looking on towards next season whether AV comes back or not--there are a number of guys the way they're currently playing that might not be back either. Girardi, Zuccarello, Brassard, Del Zotto, Boyle, Pouliot, Stralman, Pyatt, Dorsett. Do these guys want to play here? Better started showing up. Hate to say it but if this team continues to play the way it has--then there should be more call ups--more kids.
