Nah, three is just three in a row.

Special teams are especially worrysome.

Rangers must be among the worst teams in the league in clearing the puck on the PK. They never seem to be able to get it out of the zone.

Last night was absurd. I think three times they were stuck in their own zone for 2+ minutes.

Yeah that bothers me. They just try to whack at the puck instead of settling it down for a split second and then clearing.

not a bad team. just a couple of bad games in a row. i think they pull it together. one of these games coming up they'll score 6-8 goals. i expect them to be streaky for the most part this year. Torts needs to stop changing all the lines up and let the guys gell. IMO

They're not "bad", but they aren't great either. They won't be great until they add more offensive skill.

Right now, they're average.

The top 6 catches a lot of flak for not producing enough goals, but at some point the "third line" guys have to take some heat as well.

Prust- 12:20 TOI/game and 2 goals
Feds- 15:42 TOI/game and 1 goal
Boyle- 14:14 TOI/game and 1 goal

Through 18 games our third line is on pace to finish the season with a whopping 17 goals combined.

This is not a good year especially for Dubinsky. I understand its pretty early into the year, but how long does it take for someone to get back into form? Its a shame because he is one of my favorite rangers, but somethings got to give. From leading the team in points to barely having a presence...thoughts?

Imagine this scenario:

1.) Rangers actually win the Stanley Cup
2.) Rangers make absolutely no changes in the off-season
3.) Rangers lose the first two games of the following season.

I bet something like this thread would pop up even then.

I'll post it here too, enough of the ****ing Sean Avery ****. He plays 5 minutes a game, 5 ****ing minutes. The reason he's loved so much here is because the Devils HFers hate him, and the Devils players hate him enough said. Whether it's Christensen or Avery they both have little impact on the game's outcome. There are more important issues than *****ing over a 12th/13th forward, for example the injuries on defense, and the lack of top 6 talent on the team.

LMFAO. ****ing king of a post.

This guy is either over-emotional, a fool, or a troll.

I guess the Red Wings are three times as bad of a hockey team as we are, given that they lost 6 games in a row at one point.

Lose two in a row and now suddenly a borderline playoff team. Gotta love this board.
