There's about 10 other guys on this team I'd call out before Richards in these playoffs.

The guy with the C on his chest being one of them.

Both him and Gabby should be ashamed and Callahan's not far behind....You would think that your "Big Guys" should be expected to show up at least once in a while. I think were all seeing what these 3 are really made of..Pathetic performance all around, but it starts with these 3.. Sorry to all the Cally lovers but this Team lacks True leadership. It's obvious with the Lack of effort once again tonight, and all the Stupid penalties..

How about we call out every other forward, except for Kreider. Because he's the only forward who looks like he knows what he's doing out there.

Pretty much this...

Richards and Gabby have come up big (against the Caps). But how any team with those two, Cally, Stepan and now Kreider (whos been great) can have such a terrible offense is beyond me.

When we play a game like THAT, YES people need to step up.

There are plenty of guys that have been invisible for the majority of the playoffs. That's my point. Blame them before blaming the guy that saved us last round.

this right here.

if you've got decisive guys on the ice, you might have a 60 percent shot at setting up a decent offensie chance. maybe.

put this strategy on the ice with guys who are over thinking their plays and end up needlessly moving the puck into empty ice and you're just not gonna generate much.

I think we fell into the latter category tonight

The worst part is, they're not even doing it right. Keep it out of Fatso's reach. Idiots.

i expect more from brad richards than i do anyone else. the guy is usually a beast in the playoffs. he couldnt have been any more clutch against washington. its just very surprising hes been so invisible in this series. he was invisible for long stretches of the regular season but i couldnt care less cuz i knew he'd step up in the playoffs. hasnt happened in this series.

I expected him to cool off a bit, but I'm surprised he's been THIS invisible in the series.

Outside of Kreider, the forwards have been atrocious.

You can't point to anything specific for why they haven't shown up. Each one of them have their own issues/reasons.

Simply put..Your Best players Have to be your best players especially in the playoffs.. Ours have not. It's that simple. Our best players are no where to be found.. I've given up on Gabby. He doesnt have a clue IMO

This team could have Crosby, Malkin, Datsyuk, Prime Gretzky, etc. and they'd still struggle to score.

Dump and chase can go to hell.

I would think if anything Gabby needs to be called out and i cant believe im about to say this but ryan callahan needs to really come through. I thought Rupp played pretty good tonight. Dubinsky could really help us right now- in any area.

Why cant see the Rangers that played in the 2nd? the one that started to open up plays and create offense. This hurts because i feel fatso wasn't at his best tonight.

What kills me is when they dump and chase on the PP, that's the worst.

We shut down Giroux at even strength. It's not really Brad's fault. He has cross-hairs on his back.

Because Richards has tried to do everything so far...He has helped our powerplay this series too.

The guy I am getting ticked off about is Gaborik. He has been pissing me off so much. He just has been losing the puck and I dont see any energy from him right now

I love Richards and i think he is our best player next to Hank and McD, i agree with the Gaborik anger, sooner or later he has to score a goal or two in one game. Without Richards we are out in the 1st round.

when a player who played less than 30 NHL games is your best player in the series behind Hank..the team has issues...Kreider is making Gaborik look like Petr Nedved
