I'm as frustrated as everyone else. Though I would love to see many of the Hartford kids up and playing and can't understand why they're not, we can't take the temperature of this team after every game.
I thought the Toronto game showed two equal teams: thats would made the game so good. Unfortunately, its two equal teams that just might miss the playoffs.
One thing that did disturb me, and is indicative of the Rangers is: Pock made a bad read and was beaten badly on the Sundin goal. That was the last time he saw the ice. Is this how a young D learns? Is this how he can internalize his mistake, go out on the ice and correct it? Is this how he is rewarded for all the improvement he has shown lately? Benching him will certainly not help his confidence. Here, in a nutshell is a major part of the Ranger problem and why we will never have a young core of players we can suppliment with older free agent vets and be a legit Cup contender.
