Rangers did a great job shutting down our transition game, and taking away time and space from Phil. We were averaging 32 shots for in the previous 4 games.

1st. line did not show up at all, and the 3rd. line was overmatched.

With Mac replacing Lupul I no longer consider it the 1st line to be honest.

Lost to NY Rangers 2-5, playoff odds down 15.5 to 35.4%

Of course it is very early in the season but it's fun to see the odds day to day.

I hope they bounce back vs the Sabres and the Caps next. That Bruins game is an auto loss

No but I feel the Grabo line is the real 1st line in the current situation.

Imo, these next 3 games will determine if we have what it takes to be a playoff team, or if it will be a tank season. We need to win 2 of 3 to stay in a legit playoff race.

I still don't understand how we went 4-2-0 against the Bruins 2 seasons ago, then last year we got smoked 0-6-0

Let's see if this team has any sort of dignity or self-pride after going 0-6 against the Bruins last year and only really losing one that was close.

Finally someone notices the reality of the situation, yes they are the first line.

FYI:

McClemment and Kulemin are top PK's and so far the team is 6th. in the PK.

We are seeing the advantage of timing and game shape effect for Grabs and Kulemin playing during the lockout here.

Carrying the team offensively early on was anticipated as a result.

Yeah that and overall the line is flat out more balanced and powerful, productive etc.

Kessel is successful with Lupul, they don't have grit with Bozak. They need a power forward C and a G. If it means trading Dion to get either this team is in better shape. 32 minutes is insane and if they want those guys to look viable they better pull back to 22mins or so 25 tops.

I think its stupid that Carlyle plays Phanuef for over 30 minutes. Carlyle needs to give him less than 25 minutes a game. Phaneuf usually has a strong beginning to a game but falters at the end due to the amount of minutes he played in his tenure with the Maple Leafs. Players make more mistakes the longer they play, simple as that.

Reimer had a better save % than Lundquist. If the rags are happy with Lundquist we should be thrilled with Reimer.

When you are paid as the highest fwd on the team at 5.5M, you better be on the first line or we got a problem here, yet he hasn't been able to handle other first lines in losses against NY, and NY Isles. Tavares and Richards.

Somewhere for you folks, there is a lesson in there on why we need to upgrade our top 6 core players. Head to head Grabo doesn't match up against the better team's first liners and even in some cases like the NY Isles he doesn't either.

It's not that - it's a complacent attitude that breeds 8 (or 45) years of losing

Mark Fraser - How was he vs NYR?

So I missed the game last night as I was playing hockey myself.

I was curious to hear how Mark Fraser did last night. He was a +1 from what I saw in 6:39 of play. He and Liles were the only plus leafs last night.

Any comments from someone who watched the game?

Fraser better not see another game. No reason having a "tough guy" defensemen playing 6 minutes when you already have Brown and Orr in the lineup.
