I agree.

We didn't play as bad as some are making it out.

A bounce goes our way and #1 in clinched right now.

****ing Van Masenhoven needs to be barred from ever reffing a Rangers game ever again. His bull **** bias has been blatantly apparent for decades.

Guy, that goal was made possible by a defenseman. And it only amplified when you have three Rangers right there!

Seriously, if someone were to miff the puck and it went right directly to an opposing players stick, would you still blame Lundqvist for allowing a goal?

He doesn't have the physical element that is needed for that first line. I also think putting him on that line might lead to him forcing WAY too many plays. It was a reason why he was moved away from Gabs.

Question, is this glass half full or half empty?





Nevermind, I already know your answer.

After 4 straight wins they lose to the defending Stanley Cup Champions who didn't want to be swept by our guys. It happens.

The young D has been great, but Lundqvist has been the biggest reason we have most of the 50 wins. Because our good D we wouldn't be a lottery team without Hank, but we'd be battling just to make the playoffs. Lundqvist played some of the best goal in league history till March. Then he decided to take March off. Looks like he decided to take April off too.

So Dan Girardi isn't a defender?

Lol.

We win and we are unstoppable.

We lose a one goal game and we suck...despite being one point away from #1 in the East (final standings) and could win the President's Trophy.

Exactly that game could have gone either way...if it wasnt for one key giveaway...and missing open nets/not hitting net.....we could have won 3-2...4-2.

Honest question here. Are you a goalie?

Also, I think Snowblind forgot that Girardi plays D since even though our defense was " so good", Girardi gets the primary assist on Pat Bergeron's goal.

I don't give a **** about a defensive mistake when the end result is a ****** wrap around goal. If the mistake ends up on a point blank shots that goes under the bar, it's the defenseman's fault, if it's **** like what Lundqvist faced then it's the goalie's fault. If Girardi were the best defenseman in the league and Lundqvist was simply a very good goalie then maybe I'd blame Girardi more. Even then the goaltender is the most important position on the ice, the goalie always deserves the most blame.

Honest answer, no. I don't care, even the announcers agreed with me. Terrible goal.

I get ytour point but the guy has skill and great hockey sense; the problem is there is nothing really remarkable about his game per say. We may have to temper our expectations of where we think he'll end up as a player, production wise. Personally, I'd be happy if he eventually grows into a solid 60-65 point 2nd line center.
To accomplish that, he needs to get physically stronger, improve his skating and learn how to win 50% of his faceoffs!

You might want to know what constitutes a wraparound goal.

How about you go into Boston's forums and imply we overachieve and that Lundqvist is overrated. You've done it when the Rangers played other teams.

Steps is not an atrocious PKer. He's strictly mediocre. Right around AA's level. He's also a lot smarter with the puck. And Boyle is a lot better defensively 5-on-5 than AA is. So is Feds and Prust. Come on, man. Don't just start making **** up because you like the guy. I've pimped AA for years as a prospect and love all our home-grown guys. It's just time for him to **** or get off the pot. Dude needs to either take a step or go. I don't see him taking that step.
