Normally he deserves that sort of ice time, but tonight he definitely didn't. Especially not after he took two bad penalties.

King Henrik continues to be best in the biz, could have been 4 or 5-1 tonight. The Rangers played really solid in front of him until the 3rd period. Tough Panthers club, King almost stole them a point or two.

And Newberry is so far removed from being any kind of answer that I can't actually see him from here, that's how far away he is from being any part of an improvement. Good lord, Newberry can play with Deveaux in Hartford forever, for all I care.

It's laughable that Callhan gets 6 min of ice time for a plug. Sure he's got the heart..etc, but cement hands with no vision.

What is it that takes obviously talented players and slows them down and nullifies their potency? They have the talent, but somehow just don't seem to play naturally. I don't know, maybe I make no sense, but it's frustrating seeing what looks like half-speed so much.
For Torts,it looks like it`s more important what offencive talented players does without the puck,then what they do with it. make no sense to me.

Beside the point. I'm allowed to say they suck. I'm allowed to make fun of them. Other Rangers fans are allowed to do the same. Who's this joker?

Anyway, to ignore that guy...

We're NOT a bad team. Which is why it's so annoying to watch the team play like this.

Anisimov-Steps-Gabby was really good for a while, but we need a real top 6 LWer- not because Arty's bad, but the opposite- if we had somebody we could put him on the third line and have 3 real lines.

Right now, we're a two line team with a 4th line masquerading as a 3rd line. With Dubi awake, we have 1 real top 6 LWer. When he's sucking like this? LW is barren.

I agree with the guy who said play Richards with Gabby next game, actually. As long as Dubi's sleeping that lines not going to be producing consistently enough. See if Steps can go with Cally and maybe carry the line until Dubi wakes up, and have your two best players going together so you can sustain SOME offense.

Sorry, nope. He deserves that ice time if you wanna finish 7th in the conference. He's a plug on most teams.

I like NYR, but seeing him get 6 PP min is hilarious. Stepan much more vision, yet gets squat.

To be frank, I don't think that 7 game streak was real. I think it was just a mediocre team getting hot for a couple of weeks. This ~15 shots a game team is the real Rangers imo.

WHy? I want to see the Rags do well..just some candid commentary from watching the game, that's all.

Cally is a stud, but relying on him heavily to score will be the death of you.

Disagree.

Dubinsky is obviously not playing up to par, so right now we have 2 first line players and 3 second line players. One of the first liners is on the 2nd line, and the other second line players are on the first line.

It might be the real Rangers if we don't rectify our bottom 6 problem and Dubi never wakes up, but get some young, hungry guys on the 3rd line, hopefully see when Dubinsky wakes up, and I think we're a very legitimate team.

I would say they are not the team we saw 2nite and not the team that won 7 in a row. They are still searching for a identity.

I may have more hope then some

Fine, just don't call us that. That's a racial slur.

Look at the Bruins. Horrendous, horrendous start to the season, and since then they've rattled off 9 in a row.

You know why? Lucic woke up and started playing hockey. Dubinsky still has yet to do that, so our top 6 is in a rough spot.

Thought the team is playing very similar to last year's team. Gabs is playing a notch up, Dubi, AA, Boyle offensively a notch down.

Lost the special teams game 1-0 tonight. That's the margin of difference in the final score.
Lose the PP battle often enough and the team will miss the playoffs.

The PP (led by Richards) was where the add'l points were supposed to come from to compete at a higher level. Still waiting.
