which leads me to another complaint - why are the rangers so terrible on 4v4?
The argument can and has been made for many months now that the pp units should be changed. I know that the point men have been discussed since at least November. It's no excuse to hide behind "it's too late now" because its not a new development. If change takes time to fix things then how come Mara, a recent acquisition, is having more success than anyone else on the point? These guys have been playing hockey for 20+ years, if they can't figure out how to take advantage of a shorthanded team without several practices then they don't deserve to be in the playoffs. Oh wait...
