Stepan actually was one of the better fowards, but it's beyond me why he and Cally are suddenly whipping boys.

I get it that we expect more of Cally, and you can tell he's trying too hard to be the difference maker. It worked against him tonight, hard. That said, through the first 3 games he was one of the more consistently effective players.

These guys better not have the day off tomorrow. 2 LONG practices, right the ****ing ship, and play like everyone knows you can.

Nash was completely invisible. I would be second guessing this trade if he continues to play as ineffectively as he has. Otherwise can you say Jagr? Can you say Holik? Can you say Naslund? It will be another one of "those" big name acquisitions for Ranger fans.

I would rather we finish strong than start that way and tail off.

However, as of yet the team has not shown that it is built to be successful, nor have they given the fanbase much to be optimistic about.

They aren't sharp, and they are fatigued. Still, considering this, team depth is still a concern.

We're not cycling properly, guys are fleeing the boards too early and leaving our defensemen on an island without a play to make but throw it in and have it blocked down.

Our collapsing defense is leaving the team susceptible to deflections and rebound chances.

Yeah the guy that has one of the most talented powerplays in the league and his team is clicking at 5% on the powerplay.

The coach that gets all the offense he needs to work with and whose team has a hard time crossing the blue line.

The coach who has the best goalie in the world and his defensive scheme is to literally stand in front of said goalie.

The coach who has a guy in Jeff Halpern whose ONLY function is to take faceoffs and doesn't send him out to take big faceoffs.

Yes, that guy.

He's just not a skilled player at all. Nor dynamic in any way. Worst one-timer on Earth.

How many times have gave up an odd man rush on the PP? This is ridiculous.

I think I'm done ranting for the night.

They better not send Kreider down. Why in the world is Newbury playing, they stunk tonight but he caused a penalty that led to a goal. Send him back down he's a AHLer

Hopefully Newbury and Bickel are out with Asham and Kreider back in Saturday. They better beat TO

good thing is no back to back games in the next 3

Doesn't Sullivan run the PP? If that's the case then you gotta cut him loose. How many years now? This can't continue.

That ****ing powerplay was the worst thing I have seen in my life. I wanted to hurt little puppies after witnessing that. Why wasn't Nash involved on the powerplay? Why isn't DZ on the 5-3? Do they practice this at all?

And why the **** does Richards not know how to win a ****ing face-off? Did you see Torts' rage at the end there? That's for you, buddy.

Put Stralman on the powerplay. At least he's a no-BS, get the puck to the net type of guy.

Can Torts please bag-skate the hell out of these guys? They looked asleep from puck drop.

I'm just making sure i'm hearing you right. It's hard for me to believe this.

Why would you include Jagr? Jagr was arguably a top 10 player in franchise history....in 3 seasons.

Jagr met, surpassed, destroyed, and humiliated expectations here.

We dont skate to pucks, we dont win battles, we dont get shots on net and we fumble every single pass. We are horrible. I cant remember the last time this team was this awful.

Nash is slow. Like really slow. Hes good, but slow.

Stephan is a *****.

I dont recall if Richards was playing.

Same goes for Callahan.

Gaborik looks like he only plays sometimes.

I hate Newbury and Bickel.

Sorry, I just had to share some small things to feel a little better.

Kings just got shut down on a long 5-on-3 by the Oilers. Still no PP goals on the season. Pathetic. I just can't see them being contenders with that roster and coaching staff.

That is so brutal. Seeing that probably made me feel worse inside than having to deal with the board as is.

Look at the roster and look at the result. How else do you explain this?
