Even the Penguins fourth line with Vitale and Co are playing some good tick-tack-toe hockey. Rangers have shown no cohesion whatsoever..only Callahan and Nash look like they're actually playing.

Two things:

1) I blame the short training camp...

2) I'm happy this is happening now and not at game 30. As long as they can work this out and get back to last year's form. I'm not pushing the panic button yet.

Give them a few games. Nash will wake them up. Completely impressive how he moves.

I agree. I wasn't a fan of anyone we picked up this year outside of Nash (obviously) ... when you lose that many character guys who play smart D and shut guys down ... it hurts.

Halpern and Asham barely play at this point and are totally useless. Our forecheck doesn't seem as intimidating as last year. Dubi, Prust, Feds, and Mitchell were all bangers who can get in on the forecheck relatively quickly.
they look exactly the same to me to be honest. remember how bad we were the first 10 games of last season. hopefully they hit their stride soon

I've been wondering the same thing. I don't get it.

Way too early for that, but he may be in the hot seat soon enough.

Callahan has never been a 30 goal scorer.

Biron should start next game, Eminger needs to come in, Gaborik and Kreider should be on the 3rd line until they show some effort, Callahan is being Callahan, Nash looks alright, Del Zotto has been mostly solid, everyone else: no comment.

I am excited for next season, I really think with a full training camp you will see torts put in a new system, similar to this with d and blocking shots, but more offense like he had in tampa I think he finally has the right pieces to do that

Its the system, its built around DEFENSE and everyone collapsing around Hank and blocking shots. Our system is dump, chase and GRIND GRIND GRIND. Its systematic whether anyone wants to admit it or not.

Tired of that excuse. This is a 48 game seson not 82. This team still has to get chemistry

Agreed, I noticed this last night as well. They can no longer forecheck effectively. And it's pretty unfortunate because they are having major problems generating offense off the rush... the passing is horrendous right now.
