torts just stands there as if his work this season is done.
Ive been saying this to myself for a long time now. How do you score a goal with 3 guys behing the goal line? And if there is someone in front of the net while the sword fight is going on behind it, they are a whole 3 INCHES away from the goalie with NO room to have any sort of a chance of getting a pass.

Oh come on... That's an insult to the Jets. This crap we see from the Rangers is beyond frustrating and I'll take the Jets getting to the championship game for 3 more seasons before I deal with this **** from the Rangers.

I'm trying to make believe that this team started the season crappy and has fought its way back to 8th place.

But it doesnt work.

There has to be accountability. My list for the blame game:


1) Tortarella -- This one is easy. When you have a double-digit point advantage disappear in three weeks, the moves youre makling are obviously not working. If Tom Renney got fired for not getting results, so too should Torts

2) Gaborik -- He's disgusted me this season. We all dreaded the injury history when he signed here. On top of being hurt half the season, he's also shown to be lazy and disinterested at times.

3) Drury -- Solely for cap reasons. Guy should retire. His reputation as a winner is dead.

4) Lundqvist -- Somebody was saying he wasnt on pace for his worst season ever. Want to make that bet again? He's been far from Superman. Very pedestrian this season.

5) Power play -- see Gaborik. Gaborik's struggles mean Del Zotto struggled. MDZ struggled means nothing works. It took five months for the power play to look decent, only to look like crap again



I've said this a million times. You cant blame Dubinsky and Callahan or Gilroy or even MZA.
Those guys are support guys. Dubinsky isnt a 1st-line winger. They are support pieces for when Gaborik gets shut down, which rarely happened last season.

Gaborik is supposed to be the igniter. Drury is supposed to be the backbone. Henrik is supposed to be the savior in case the other two fail.

All three have been bad this season. That's also 20-plus million in cap space.

If all three were average this season, we'd be 15 points up on a playoff spot.

How can you blame Lundqvist for having a GPG of 2.28?

Yeah, Torts and Sam and Joe make it sound like the team is fine but the opposing goaltender is stealing every game.

When he kept saying "We couldn't solve Miller" after last game I just rolled my eyes. We seemed to have solved him pretty well considering how many wide open net chances we got. Almost any other team wins that game and this one.

Henrik needs to play better. I'm sorry, he just does. You can give me the crap about "he had no chance on that one" and yada yada, but it doesn't matter.

How many quality scoring chances did Minny have tonight? How many did they score on?

Exactly.

There can be fingers pointed in every direction, but one needs to be planted directly in Henrik's mug.

Get better, Hank. Fast.

It happens all the time too.

INEXCUSABLE to miss as much as these guys do.

I love them, but its fact that these guys are gunna be overpaid when they sign in the summer.

Dubi isnt a 4.5M player.

Today is a horrible day for me as a Rangers fan. Buffalo and Carolina have a three point game, Toronto goes into Philly and wins in regulation, and we lose in regulation yet again. Seeing as though we are slumping just as much as Atlanta, Ottawa is probably going to beat us tomorrow due to them beating Atlanta tonight . Plus the fact that we play Philly in MSG on NBC on Sunday at 12:30 and they're gonna come out motivated after losing to Toronto and then possibly losing to Buffalo on Saturday.

FIRE TORTORELLA!

Something has to be done to shake the team up.

The Devils weren't exactly terrible for half the season, but they just weren't winning for whatever reason. They fire MacLean, and next thing you know, they're on fire.

To say the Rangers suck is ignorant. A sucky team goes out and gets outplayed. The Rangers outplay everyone. They outchance everyone. It's just this constant bad luck that's been with them since the start of the year. Normally, teams can play through a tough stretch, but this team actually works harder and has worse results.

What good does "tanking" do? The only way that would even be acceptable is to throw all the chips in, trade Lundqvist for a goalscorer and let the kids develop on Broadway, while losing 6-4 every night.

We needed a pure goal scorer tonight. Really badly. Even if we go out and get Richards in the offseason, we are going to need Gaborik scoring goals, and healthy for this team to have success.

If 2011 has taught us anything it is that hard work goes only so far in this league.

Its hard to lay the blame on that trade, or losing Rozy or bringing in Wolski. This team was real good up til the end of December. Thats when the wheels seemingly fell off and if they don't find their bearings soon, its gonna officially be a streak of 2 years out of the playoffs
I appreciate finding the exact record, or what is close to it.

We had a weird balance that seemed to work. Personally I think it's because Rozy is a much better passer than anything we have on the back end. Sometimes you can't have a bunch of north/south guys like we have no, you have to have some players who are different. Rozy pissed people off, but he was our best passer out of the back end. Rozy just had offensive hockey sense.

And I love Staal, actually think he's a top 3 purely defensive player, but his passing and his overall offensive ability is HORRIBLE. His passing and accepting of passing is just painful. And we've wasted so many powerplays watching him be the first pass up ice. It either turns into a grenade for the guy receiving the pass, or just flat out misses him.

Yup, we need Henrik to step it up.

He had no chance on the first two goals, and next to no chance on the third. However, we've seen him make saves before where it appeared he had no chance. At times, he has been great. His season in general, however, has been just mediocre.

For us to succeed the rest of the year, it's pretty clear he is going to have to make "holy ****" saves more regularly.

Dubinsky is a talented hockey player.. No doubt. It seems he is putting pressure on himself to carry this team. This is tough for any young player to carry a team. Great learning experience for Dubinsky right now which will only make him a better player

This is where the team's highest paid players such as Hank and Gaborik (when he gets back) to step up their games and carry this team to the playoffs

We can't score dude... I agree that people would have liked Hank to stop 1 or 2 of them, but he's not going to post constant shutouts, and that is what our lack of offense demands right now.

Get the offense fixed because it doesn't matter what Hank does if we are putting up no goals.
