This team is a cruel ****ing joke. Great names, great expectations and they don't give a ****. If it were up to me every player but Lundqvist would ****ing get kicked out of the league for that effort today and the effort so far this season. This team is garbage, absolute garbage. I long for the pre-lockout years. At least then they weren't considered a cup contender. What a joke.

Well said, and the reason this team will never be as successful as they should be.

After all the **** you talked about Lundqvist just yesterday, now you're willing to spare him?

I think Micheletti is right. Teams playing in the second game of back-to-backs are at a bigger disadvantage this season than in others. One week training camp. A lot of the players didn't play anywhere during the lockout. They're not in shape. That was a very physical game last night. The Rangers looked gassed from the minute the game started.

Yeah, I'm not so sure I would want to hear a hour of four letter words being thrown around like candy on Halloween either. Especially when nothing of actual substance will be worked on, like the power play, breakouts, forechecking, defensemen holding the puck in at the point, etc.

Wow - Rangers play the next night after a big win and almost pull it out with talent alone and they suck?
The Rangers are really, really good. They will be just fine - they are out of shape and playing the 2nd game of a back to back against a rested Flyers team that hasn't won a game yet and is absolutely desperate with a bunch of young call-ups trying to impress at the NHL level...

Now the Mets suck - that much is true.

For today's effort yes. Game should have been 6-1. Yesterday he was garbage.
