What really grinds my gears...

Is when fans put the team down and lose faith.

Is when we take a million years to resign Staal

Is when Dr House dianoses me with lupus.


What really grinds YOUR gears about the NHL/NYR?

...and Dr. House

-When the Rangers sign non physical DMen
-When no one stands in front of the goalie on the PP
-When guys in Hartford deserving of a crack may not make the team due to numbers
-When the Rangers get bullied around and don't start swinging fists

-Sidney Crosby over exposure
-Anze Kopitar neglect

-House himself gets on my nerves. The entire show can be summed up with one sentence: "Oh, he's such an hole......but he's really good at his job!"

ahhh spoiler haha

No one ever clearing the crease/no one on the rangers getting in their crease

im sick of watching hank get run 5+ times a night while no one ever takes a run at an opposing player

non-physical play from the Rangers, especially the avoidance of contact. Artem Anisimov gets the gold medal in that category

Letting Hank get run and not doing anything about it on the next shift

Avery when he has a brain cramp and hurts the team with boneheaded play

not giving AHL kids a legit shot. I am still shaking my head on Sanguinetti

Not mucking it up in front of the other guys goalie with the extra man

Agreed. It's gotten really old -- time to retire it.

- Justin Bieber

- When Hank make 3 periods worth of spectacular saves then lets in a game winner from an impossible angle

- beer snobs

- lazy penalties

- most reality television

- stepping in something wet with dry socks

- the shootout

- bumper stickers (i dont give a $#!& what you believe in) and while on that, anyone that insists on bringing up politics or religion in a social setting. Does anything suck the fun right out of a room more than that??

- not making the playoffs

- How a high post count somehow magically makes a 15 year old deserve more respect than someone 20-30 years older. Ah the internet....where everyone is a celebrity in their own minds...

- not bringing back JJ. say what you want but he was my favorite player as a kid, hated seeing him go.

- wade redden and his locker room soul sucking attitude.

- torts' constant juggling of the lines.

- torts' not putting players in a position to succeed on a regular basis.

- our management's inability to understand and see what the missing pieces are. how many years have we needed a nasty dman with some snarl? sure, we'll have mcilrath in 3 or 4 years and maybe mcdonagh turns some heads this year but we went what seemed like ages without a player like this even though it was a GLARING need. see top line center as well.

- not having a competitive backup goaltender until biron. anyone ever think that it might be a good thing to have a back up goalie that can actually get hot and push hank? i sure do and have for the last 3 or 4 years.

- sanguinetti. this was a blunder. i don't feel like he was ever given a shot.

1) Jagr not winning the MVP in 2006

2) 70 years of mismanagement

3) Ratelle getting hurt

4) The contract Sather gave Redden(not his fault)

5) People on here saying Kovalchuk is not a winner, give me a friggen break I guess Ovechkin's not a winner either

6) The fact that Torts preaches accountability but doesn't do it himself

7) The stupid hell camp for the players

8) We lost Tyutin for nothing

9) The idiots in 408 or 409 who yell "Shut up Micheletti" at the 10 minute mark of every period

10) Versus

11) Mike Milbury and JR on NBC

12) The Penguins on every NBC or Versus game

13) Missing NHL 2 Nite on ESPN2

You know what really grinds my gears? This Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay Lohan with all those little outfits, jumping around there on stage, half-naked with your little outfits. Ya know? You're a... You're out there jumping around and I'm just sitting here with my beer. So, what am I supposed to do? What you want? You know, are we gonna go out? Is that what you're trying to - why why are you leaping around there, throwing those things all up in my, over there in my face? What do you want, Lindsay? Tell me what you want? Well, I'll tell you what you want, you want nothing. You want nothing. All right? Because we all know that no woman anywhere wants to have sex with anyone, and to titillate us with any thoughts otherwise is - is just bogus.

Lol she doesn't even jump around on any stage anymore. She can't even get a gig, she's just a bulimic crack head now. Maybe you're thinking of Miley Cyrus?

Big ones:

1. NYR Management - Ownership & Sather; perpetual cycle of doing just enough to keep us on the bubble - nothing more, nothing less.

2. Sidney Crosby - everything; hype, press, diving, whining.

Recently:

3. Not giving Sanguinetti a legit shot - I understand he had a rough camp but come on, bench Redden for 10-15 games and give the kid a shot before unloading him for nothing.

I agree with these, especially the description of House and nobody in front of the net on the PP. It never ceases to amaze me.

every goal the rangers score is because of a quick release

people that think broduer is better than roy

devil fans that if you told them their team sucks today they say 3 cups in 9 years, the 1st 1 being 15 years ago and the last 1 being 7 years ago. get over it.

when the rangers didnt stick up for drury after that cheapshot
when the rangers dont stick up for lundqvist when he gets knocked down
when the most expensive skaters on the rangers usually play like crap
when avery doesnt do anything and still gets a penalty for complaining to the ref.
