No. I criticize you for being a ******. There are better ways to criticize players than by being an ass about it. Obviously, you don't have fun watching hockey because every game you throw a rage in these threads about how someone or something sucked. I tend to laugh at it because quite frankly, it's just you being you as per usual on the website. I enjoy watching the games, and I can appreciate a good hockey game. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you let in a softie. But in order for your almost nightly claim of "Lundqvist sucks" to have any merit, maybe you should reflect on the Dunham or injured Richter years. That was bad goaltending. Henrik has a below 2.0 GAA, A great save percentage, blah blah blah. So you let in a softie. It's unnecessary to go on a nightly tirade about how someone has a "bad game". Because with you, it's every game and then it's every day until the next game. You should appreciate the game more instead of trying to find every aspect to hate. I've read from you about how bad almost everyone on the team is at some point or another.

So you are saying a .952 save percentage should be the line a team should expect?

I got some bad news for you, no goaltender that has played more than 40 minutes this year has lived up to your unobtainable standards.
Yes, when you're not allowing any really good scoring chances, yes. When it's 19 shots, but one is a great goal by Henwick, and one is a deflection right in front of Hank then no. .952 is not such a crazy stat for ONE game. I'm not expecting it for a season. Hank had a .940 save percentage till March. That's for months at a time. Why is .952 in one game where the D plays lights out for the most part such an unreasonable request?

I never said Lundqvist sucks. I said he's sucked since March and now in the first game of April.

Well hopefully the Rangers see the error in their ways and trade Lundqvist for whatever anyone offers this off season....... would that make you happy?

Hope you really enjoy and embrace your hate.

Have a nice day..... not like you could at this point anyway.

You're acting like Hank hasn't stolen games this season. You wouldn't even be making these ridiculous posts if this team could score more than 1 measly goal. Then it would be all good in Rangerland.

Nope, it definitely doesn't absolve him. He has to have that shot by Bergeron, no ifs, ands or buts about it!

And if it isn't Lundqvist, it's Richards, Gaborik, MDZ, Giradi, Hagelin, AA, Dubi, Stepan, Callahan, Erixon, Rupp, Scott, Prust, MCD, Biron, Deveaux, Newbury, MZA, Boyle, Stralman, Bickel, Staal, Mitchell, Sauer, Eminger, Torts, whomever is on the team.
Last game you posted about how you didn't want to watch the Rangers anymore. By all means, don't.

Lots of posters criticize players when they mess up. You seem to be the only one who doesnt let go until someone responds, in which case you keep going
From a tough stretch against the Leafs and Sens early in the year (I don't even think that was on this board since the was really early in the year) until March, all I did was praise him and sometimes even defend him. I even defended him in March when people blamed him for the breakaway goal against the Islanders and against Colorado when the D played great but ****ed up completely on the 2 goals that weren't his fault. I ride Hank when it's warranted.

No because I still think he's the best goalie in the league. If he didn't take months off, he would be having maybe the best season all time and running away with the Vezina. We'd also be running away with the President's trophy. Instead he's still having one of the best seasons of all time (not the best), he might easily lose the Vezina to Quick, and unless we run the table we're not winning the President's trophy (have you seen Vancouver's weak ass schedule?).

They won against the Devils and Red Wings and he still let in 3 softies, should have had 2 shutouts the way the D played. So I'd still be pissed. Not nearly as pissed as I am now. And the best goalie in the world better steal some games.

I can't blame tonights loss on Henrik, although the goal was soft and Giradi made a terrible mistake. Our offense (or lack thereof) inability to generate sustained pressure is the reason we lost this one.

Boston was VG in the neutral zone, but we waited too long to apply pressure. too many guys are all thumbs in front of the net: stephan, dubinsky, animsimov...

I hope Krieder can step in and give us some more offense.
The need for another top scorer will be glaring in the PO, imo.

Good to know that games before March don't count. Vancouver, 2 Bruins games, pretty much all the Flyers games, a game against Pitt, 1st Devils game, a Buffalo game. I can keep going with this.

And good to know that you think the best goalie in the world shouldn't win the Vezina. After all, you started the "Just give the Vezina to Quick" thread on the main boards. It all makes sense now!

Here's a gem in a reply to me from that thread....

...... so I'm guessing Lundqvist nosedive was suppose to drop the Rangers out of first?

Because he's better than Quick but Quick didn't fall apart in March (and now April).

The way the Rangers were playing then and the way the Penguins were playing, there was no reason to believe that the Rangers weren't going to lose first place. How many people could see the Penguins losing 4 out of 6, including 2 games to the Islanders? We still haven't clinched. With our remaining schedule and the Penguins talent it would surprise but not shock me to see a 2006 style collapse.

Why is March supposed to be weighed more heavily when voting for the Vezina winner than other months?

Just got home from the game. I liked the way they played throughout the game, a gritty physical game. We held Boston to about 20 some odd shots but had trouble keeping it out of our zone for a few stretches. Although I agree that second goal was a fluke, the powerplay is truly abysmal. Even with a 5 on 3, we were only able to get a few shots in.

I don't think anything could be dumber than referencing a goalie's save percentage in an individual game.
