Stu Bickel should change his last name to "Pid".

Pretty much. But this is the typical start of a season for Lundy. Watch him. He's moving a lot. Fighting the puck. Give him 5-6 games and he will start to settle down. His movements will become less and smoother.... its like this every year.

I'm not saying it's fair, or that he's gotten enough help, but the simple fact is Hank needs to play better if the Rangers want to win some games.

You couldn't have said it better. I don't mind Hagelin but those two guys are cringeworthy.

I told you guys yesterday that the Pens are not an easier matchup than the Bruins. The Rangers have some serious kinks they have to workout before Wednesday.

Step one would be removing Bickel from the Roster.

Bingo. Did you see the breakout where Kreider was skating his ass off waiting for a pass and Boyle passed it about 10 feet ahead of him? You need to put Kreider with good players.

He's had a couple chances today and he isn't playing with Richards and Nash.

I'll say it again. We started out with 3 losses last season and were leading the East halfway through the season. When we are at 48 GP we still led the East.

Pretty much this.

You have five games to see what you have. Another five to make adjustments. Then the next 38 to get it all together and make the playoffs.

Seriously, as a hockey fan I'm just commenting on what I see. The Rangers lineup is too good to see this type of display.
And it was effective in the playoffs. Also, what you're saying doesn't make sense. If something is effective over 82 games (and eventually over 100 w/ playoffs) then that should prove it will certainly be effective over 48 games.

On top of that, Torts has brought this team from a borderline playoff team to a top contender. He has won a cup and is one of the most successful coaches in US history.

Sorry if i disagree with you, but I'm sure i've watched the rangers a lot more than you have (i was a season ticket holder until this year) and i've seen torts system at work versus multiple other coaches in rangers past.

What you are watching isn't what the rangers will be. Torts is the kind of coach that needs time to get players to learn his system fully. With no pre-season or really training camp, the rangers are hurt more than most teams. I have full confidence, come playoff time, this team will be ready.

Its early but 48 game season, not good to start off slow, Also, Hank has allowed some pretty damn weak goals early on, gotta get this stuff fixed quick.

Kreider has looked bleh... Which is better than Hagelin who has looked like piss. Nash did all the work and set him up to shoot and he passes it into the Pens skates.

Yeah, even if the score isn't in our favor, we controlled the pace of the game at one point, which is improvement from last game.

Absolutely. Disappointing to be down 2 but I feel like we're in this game.

I dont want to hear that its early or its one game no big deal. This is a 48 game season so there is no time to screw around. Next game is against the Bruins again and we know the Bruins are already in midseason form so when will the Rangers join the party?
