Kreider isn't being used effectively, no?

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.

Lots of hockey left, but the Rangers need to play the body more. Just about everyone looks invisible except Callahan that period. Bickel and Hagelin have looked plain awful.

Being down 3-1 sucks, but it's not the worst. For a good 8 minutes we dominated and had great zone time. Come out of intermission hot and take back control of this game. We will be fine.

And don't play Bickel.

Off topic, who saw that real scummy move by Brady as he took a slide just a minute ago? Typical

Boyle is the perfect example of a disposable pawn in the chess match that is NHL Hockey.

You lose Boyle, does anyone notice?

I think not, heh.

They had their best stretch when they were throwing everything on goal.

Shoot shoot shoot.

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.

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.

This. Nash seemed willing to do so in the beginning, but stopped halfway through the period. Get HAgelin to the 3rd line and Bickel OFF THIS TEAM.

When will you guys stop using "short season" as an excuse to act like the ****ing world is ending? Do you remember how bad we looked in the first few weeks of last year? Look at these standings.


Anyway, I don't have faith that we can score 3 goals to get the W right now. Nash looks MUCH better but I just don't think we have the cohesion yet. Would love to be proven wrong.

I'm legitimately concerned about our defense.

Don't say it's two games because it isn't.

They had a horrible last month of last regular season, they were badly exposed by New Jersey, they sucked last night, and they suck again tonight.

It's becoming frequent.

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.

This period was definitely better offensively, but they need to settle down in their own zone. Hopefully Torts scares them into playing better this period.

Hopefully Eminger gets the nod over Bickel next game. I think Eminger was more than serviceable last year prior to his injury. Feel like he had trouble coming back after his shoulder injury.

No he's not. You're suppose to put young players in position to succeed. They're not doing that with him.

McD and Girardi had to play 9,999,999 minutes the last month of the season. The way the Rangers play, they WILL wear down as the season goes.

He hasn't done much good either TBH. Pyatt has been the best player on that line for sure.

He's a non-factor at best.
