Meanwhile Marian Gaborik is M.I.A. in the most important games of the year.

Good: Is that a joke? Hahahahahahaha

Bad: Nobody, calling someone bad in this game would be a complement.

The Redden:

THIS TEAM IS CURSED. BADLY.

Guess when the last time we weren't in a playoff position? April of last year. And we are likely going to be again, tomorrow, on the eve of the 82nd game of the season. I get so excited watching the best prospect we've had in decades, who miraculously fell into our laps.

Guess why he fell into our laps? Because he was going to ****ing die 2 years later. You don't make that up.

I watch this team make countless great signing, and then watch the said signed players somehow turn to crap overnight. Chris Drury got so bad so quickly not even Stephen ****ing Hawking could create a theory for. Same goes for Gomez, Kotalik, Jokinen. Nothing this team does ever goes ****ing right.

I watch ex Rangers score on this team, terrible goalies play lights out, and kids racking of their first career goals all against the Rangers. I watch all the super stars who have been out for 4 months all return just in time for the Rangers game, and they score. I watch as the schedules slowly unfold and it becomes more and more likely we will have to play a division rival for anything this season to matter.

I don't see anything going right for this team. Nothing ever does, and I can't believe people have tp endure this crap.
Wow. This has honestly been ever single Rangers team post lockout.

Tell me about it. With Jagr we had an absolute game breaker. He could take over a game all on his own. Even Gaborik last season wasn't on Jagr's level.

Isn't it sad, we used $6.5 million to sign Redden, and $4 million to sign Naslund instead it could have been given to Jagr, who could have helped us reach the playoffs last year?

It's done with now though. Even Jagr, at his age now, is better than anyone in this bunch.

Knee-jerk? Are you kidding me Inferno? I've maintained my position regarding Torts and the job he has done since the middle of last season. I mean, really? Do you know who I am?

I was banned from the official forums a while back when people actually wanted him booted from the team.

Following season, we got Naslund and Redden. Wow, that season really took my breath away.

the worst part is that if the nhl did not change tiebreaker this year, the rangers would hold the tiebreaker on carolina

The good I agree with. Also Another hilarious GDT

The bad is actually the oppossite. On a night we are shut out after this season with all the 1 goal losses what kind of fool thinks we won't at least compete with a real scorer? I guess it's every persons choice though whether to wallow in misery and failure or look forward to the coming years with these guys. PO or no I loved rooting for this team this year. I feel bad for any "Fans" that didn't just because we didn't get the cup.

The Redden: Came outta the 2nd like a bunch of drunks and got slapped around. Failed to score at all in a game this big?

He's the one I truely feel bad for.

He's one of the few that gives a damn, and he wanted to do everything in his powers to not have last year repeat itself, and I'll be damned it looks very similar to last year.

I think Lundqvist deserves to be traded just for the sake that he deserves something better than this.

Carolina will not squander their opportunity. That's for sure.

Painful to watch. Painful.

Here's to Atlanta tomorrow against Carolina, and Buffalo losing their remaining.

For his sake, I'd really like to see that. Huge fan of Henrik. But as a Ranger fan, I'd hate to see him go. But, he certainly deserves better. He is an elite talent who will end up wasting too many years on a non-competitive team. And to me, that is a shame. I think he enjoys living in NY too much to ask for a trade though.

Thrashers played very well so I for one still have hope.

Either way we saw some nice things this season. I ain't gonna burn the flag over this

Haha could you imagine if they moved Henrik and Gabby, and went in to a full on youth rebuild? Hahahaha!

Next season people on these boards would be committing suicide live on webcams.

I don't think some fans realized how good we had it with Jagr, yet every now and then you see someone say "Jagr was lazy and a bad captain." Jagr played his best in big games. I mentioned him in the GDT because our team desperately needed someone like that tonight, an elite offensive talent who comes through in the clutch. I honestly don't see how this team can succeed in the future without a player like that. Gaborik is no Jagr, not even close.

I don't think we've been unprepared this year. I think our effort is consistent. You have the occassional crapper, but everyone does.

Take a look at our coaching staff the last, decade or two. Aside for Renney, every blew. Everyone.

Which coach is available that'll not only get the most out of this team, but increase his teams level of consistency and, uh, preparation?

Torts isn't the problem. We all know what the problem is. Talent.

This specific youth movement we've watched over the recent years is headed in the right direction. It's different from what we've done in the immediate past.

Don't stress yourself. It is what it is.
