Lou did it. Brent just followed.

Like it makes any difference what is being said and by whom. Should players share fans desperation, they would never win anything. Only the ability to stay relaxed may lead to consistency in staying focused.

You can strip Drury from the C all you want. There is nobody to hand that C to. That's the problem. We can change the coach, but the problem is still the same and can be described in 3 words:

WE ARE DOOMED

I said that in Sept, but the Board was swept by euphoria of the new season expectations and wouldn't believe it. Then there was a good season start when Zherdev looked like Jagr and Lundqvist looked like... well, like Lundqvist. Now we have it.

Forget about being sellers, we've got nothing to sell.
Forget about being buyers, we've got no room under the cap.
Forget about firing the coach, this is not a change, it's a windows dressing.

There is a substantial difference between having a problems and being doomed. The rest of this season will be tortuous and the Rangers of '08-'09 will die a terrible excruciating death regardless of whether or not we will catch the 8 spot at the end of the regular season.

Post-Game quotes from Dubi and Hank;

Quote:
“I really don’t know what to say about it,” center Brandon Dubinsky said. “You can talk about effort and talk about chances and talk about whatever, it comes down to (bleeping) winning the game, finding a way to win the game. We couldn’t find a way to win the game tonight. Again.

“In order for us to win, we need to stop losing. I don’t know what else to say. When you’re falling down a mountain, you have to find something to grab. We’re miserable right now, and until we start winning, we’re going to stay that way.”
Quote:
“You see when (the opposing team) scores a goal, we totally lose our composure and start running around,” said goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who allowed the tiebreaking goal to St. Louis’ B.J. Crombeen with 5:14 remaining in the third period. “It takes a lot for us to bounce back from a goal because everybody gets so tight. … I think everybody’s so sick and tired of losing, they’re just tight with their sticks.”

Dubinsky > Drury & Gomez. At least he shows that he's angry at what's going on instead of the same old crap.

I'm finding the players getting more and more vocal about their true thoughts on the game. It's good for a change. Vent, let out the frustration.

Dubi is the (bleeping) man.

Exactly.

Good for Dubinsky though. It's nice to see.
