Well, before this game, the Flyers didn't show up. The Red Wings haven't shown up. The defending champs haven't.

The Devils in 95 were 0-3-1 in their first four games.

The game's not over and the opportunity for us to repeat last year's success is far from over.

I agree they're playing terribly, but words like "pathetic" and "joke" spread around here faster than herpes in a Hofstra frat house.
What would you call this effort then?

It doesn't make sense. There is clearly something wrong with them, but whatever it is is not apparent to me at all. Is it conditioning? It's not as though the game they played last year required flawless execution and skill. Is it mental? I really did not anticipate feeling this way about this team this early.

I miss Prust for sure, but this team has what it takes to win games. Best goalie in the world, best Defense in the game, a top line that will leave you pissing yourself. It's just a matter of getting their heads into it. Get some confidence going and score some ****ing goals. This is pathetic right now, I feel like I'm watching the Rangers from 10 years ago.

I agree with what you're saying but I think alot of the panic here has to do with the fact that in a 48 game season there isn't much room for error and a bad start over the 1st 6 to 7 games

Because it's true: skating around half-assed, reckless passes, lethargic in taking a shot, can't even get the puck out of their own zone when they get pinned.

It truly is ****ing pathetic and a ****ing joke.

The conditioning just isn't there. We got unlucky with 2 back-to-backs in the first week because its clear the Rangers are not in shape, physically and mentally.

Dump and chase seems like a viable option because we can only pass it to the other team?

At least you can usually see if the effort is there. I can't even see a glimpse of it these first few games.

This game is a pathetic joke, sorry for calling a spade a spade.

If Chris Kreider is not good enough to play with
This team, he should find a different profession.

If conditioning is the issue, they're welcome to join me in my half marathon on Sunday.

As a college student who lives on Long Island, this is absolute gold. Well played, sir.

Full period to go here. Need an extra effort shift to draw a pp or something. I'd like to see Hagelin get the wheels going.


Newbury must have pics of Glen Sather in women's panties stashed away somewhere. Not really sure how's he keeps getting the callups?

To be honest, we played like **** for a big portion of last season too.
But we managed to get W's, which makes it easy to forgive and forget

Problems are the same, cannot keep preasure in the offensive zone and we rely too much on Hank and our D + blocking shots

Lackluster. Cold. Frustrated.


These guys look like they're stuck in quicksand, and I don't mean the skating.

Do you guys seriously think they don't want to win? They're stuck in their own heads, and trying to get out of this funk.

Far from it right now. McDonagh has been ok; nowhere near last season. Girardi is lost. Staal has been hit or miss. 3rd pair is ugly. Del Zotto is a talented kid but when he's head over heels your best defenseman you got problems.

Okay, please, just care a little ****ing bit in the last period. Give us fans who's been waiting for you for 100+ days SOMETHING. This is not acceptable.

just nothing to look at. The team should feel bad. There is absolutely no excuse in this situation playing against this phi team. No excuse. Cut the ******** and play good hockey or get ready to have the sky fall on you. No excuse. None.
