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.
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.

I've unfortunately started to think the same thing. If the Caps are an "offensive powerhouse" with Ovechkin, Backstrom, Brooks Laich, and Mike Ribiero, the Rangers should be scoring 5 goals a game without even having to try.

I think if they miss the playoffs this season, it is a possibility, but definitely if they do not do well enough in the playoffs next season

No one is saying the season is over, we started HORRIBLY last year too but remember we started in EUROPE and on the road for a bunch of games because of MSG renovations. Its not a good sign when our ONLY goal is a 5 on 3 PP. We will still make the playoffs and make some noise but we need to get better offensively and we have the personnel to do it with so no excuses.

One of the worst games I have seen Lundqvist play in a long time.

And this year we started after a lockout and no training camp.

So fans are not allowed to be critical of their team if they play badly?

It's the worst we've played collectively in a long time. We had some garbage games last year but none this bad.

There's a difference between acting like the sky is falling and being critical.

Guess what you're doing.

It definitely wasn't a good game for him, as much as it pains me to say that. I think, if he was on, it'd be a 2-1 Pittsburgh game.

That said, Rangers are playing with no heart, on their HOME OPENER, the team should be embarrassed. I'm SO glad I didn't pay for this. I had a friend drop $150 to get a seat to the game...

That can't be true. There were some real stinkers last year. The one against Pittsburgh near the beginning of March (I think) was pretty godawful.

Well it's an opinion so it's bound to vary, but IMO this is the worst they have played in like forever.

This defense isn't what we thought it was. The league is figuring out Torts' system, and this D is being exposed.
