How about Rangers Defense?

Im not involved with the contracts, so can you help me.
I wonder how to improve Ranger defense. They are the worst! Running into each other with the puck turn it over and get scored on. I have not seen anything like it at this level. EVER! Poor goalies in NYRangers! It is embarrassing. Ive said it for so long, defense in rangers really SUCK!
Againt Philly you can VERY clearly see how stupid rangers defense look, anyone can see that. I want to know how the rumors go;

Is Reeney about to get fired?

Wich ones (of the D-men) can be moved to nex season?

The defense looks worse this season than it did last year. Kalinin will most likely be gone, but I think both Redden & Rozy will still be here next year.

And I definitely noticed the Rangers' D running into each other sometimes. The forwards run into each other too, I noticed Dawes does it a lot. It's a matter of positioning, they really have to work on that. It could be because the lines are constantly changing and the players are unfamiliar with where their teammates are.

I probably misspelled because iam drunk and living it up.

Against Philly you can VERY clearly see how stupid rangers defense look, anyone can see that. I want to know how the rumors go;

Is Renney about to get fired?

Which ones (of the D-men) can be moved to nex season?
To answer your question, Mara and Kalinin are both UFAs. Kalinin will be gone. The only way I believe Mara can be re-signed is if the Rangers move Rozsival. Either way I expect for there to be two new D-men for the Rangers next year...probably two out of Michael Sauer, Corey Potter and Bobby Sanguinetti.

On paper the defense doesn't look that bad, but on the ice I think they are bottom 10 in the league. Too many high scoring chances, not physical enough, pinching in at the wrong time, etc...

Worst of all though, those high scoring chances almost always come after the Rangers have scored or the other team has scored... the worst possible time to allow them. They really have no clue what consistency is... basically relying on 82 games of miracle goaltending.

I think the OP is absolutely right. If we make the playoffs I can't see us lasting more than 5 games.

Solution? I'm really not sure. With some of the contracts, patience is the only thing I can think of. Possibly a change in coaching if they continue to lose

yeah thats what i got out of it too.


as for the defense knocking into each other, the whole team does that, not just the defense. the rangers are extremely sloppy if u ask me.

Like many have said...he was probably talking about our goalies not getting much help from those in front of them. If anything you should be questioned due to your username. Rags is not a nickname, it is a put down people use in reference to the Rangers.

He didn't refer to the goalies being poor. He said "poor goalies" in that the defense doesn't help them out, so he feels bad for them cause they have to carry the load. Most of us got that, and even the OP confirmed that that is what he meant.
And as previously mentioned rags is a insult not something ranger fans say.
