No.

That said, I'd bet money he'll get a call up when post-season begins, and see some ice time.

Rangers continously bad performances are starting to tire Lundqvist out. You can see he's getting sick of playing in front of a bunch who seem to have no idea what they're doing out there.

The blowout last night was no exception from the picture this season, it was just another peak. Rangers have been just as terrible before against Vancouver and Ottawa for example, it's just that you had better skating and offense than they had. We basically have total collapses each and every game, where Lundqvist usually can hold the fort by himself for about 10 minutes or a period, but if it's more than that, he can't consistently stop the opposition.

It's really frustrating as a fan to see a team built on defense, unable to play defense, which has sadly been all Lundqvist so far this season. There has been way, way too many quality scoring chances against each and every game to be at an acceptable level. Because a defensive team without defense is absolutely nothing. We are awful at scoring goals (29th) and we don't have enough natural goal scorers, so that won't be something we can rely on to win games.

You have a much better chance getting somewhere, because if you struggle defensively, you can still bail yourselves out and still win the game. The Rangers? If the other team scores more than 2 goals, we are basically screwed. We might get it into a shootout if we can keep our opponents at 2.

Sorry, didn't mean to steal your PGT, but frustration needs to be vented.

It's not just putting 4th liners on the 4th line, it's the make up of the 4th line, which could've been any combinatioin other then Begin-Lapierre-Laraque.... maybe Lats, maybe SK, maybe Tom K back there and one of the others on line 2..... both Begin and Lapierre have had some real awful moments this season, give Carbo credit for getting his lunchbox guys not only on track but on the scoresheet.

In any case when a teams wins 3 in a row the coach deserves a break from the usual suspects, glad to see it for a day or so.

Not at all, your input is valuable and I don't say this to sound arrogant... It confirms what I was thinking, the Habs aren't out of the woods yet.
