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?
bickel isnt really better than eminger. eminger is the better skater and the better overall player.
hagelin is trying to do to much. its torts' deal. he put him there. hes got to be moved down. i understand torts trying to get some speed on that line but hes got limited offensive skills. we saw that at michigan. hes a super pk guy and speed checker.
Team just doesn't look like they know what to do with the puck - hesitant. And when they finally make a decision with the puck, it's too late, and the pass doesn't connect. No flow whatsoever to their offense, defense isn't solid either. Lockout hangover I'm hoping.
Ugh. Anyway, Cally's PPG for anyone wanting a second look or hasn't seen it.
Gaborik scored 40. Callahan 29. Richards had 66 points. The offense was 11 out of 30 in terms of goals per game in the regular season and 9 out of 16 in the playoffs. Not stellar, but not terrible by any means. It looks like the guys aren't executing, making stupid mistakes, not that the system is bad.
Its still not a good place to be, when you consider the difference between 25 and 30 wins could be the difference between 2nd and 9th place. Each game is massive. We need to try to salvage something out of this.
Thanks, Pidto. I didn't know what a palindrome was.
