Terrible doesn’t even begin to describe this one. I have not been this embarrassed to be a Ranger fan in a long time. Had nam flashbacks to 2003 tonight.

Where to begin? First and foremost – way to step up with Cally out team. Nice job. 0 forecheck. Soft up and down the ice. 0 aggression. 0 hustle. Legit scoring chances could be counted on one hand.

PP is a joke. The Rangers have got to be the only team in the league that can’t win a faceoff OR enter the zone on the ensuing rush AND when they finally do resort to chipping the puck aimlessly around the boards instead of working the points/half boards. Which ultimately leads to a turnover.

Add in a boatload of stupid mistakes. 4th too many men penalty thus far. ARE YOU KIDDING? Tons of other stupid penalties too.

Over-passing like they are in the GD All Star Game. Get the puck on net. Richards, Gabby, Nash, all invisible. That can’t happen.

I’m not on the ledge, there is time to right the ship, but I took one step in that direction. The season has started boys. Time to get your collective head out of your ass.

PS – Don’t even get me started on the absurdity that is the officiating when we play the Pens. Malkin tomahawk’s Staal in the head = matching minors. Sid and Girardi trade shots, Kunitz 3rd man in, Pens PP. Sid interferes with Hank by skating through the crease in the 2nd, trips Gabby with stick & skate in 3rd = no call. Absurd.

Like the people who complain about spoilers in the Entertainment section when they venture into a thread when they know people will be talking about the episode that just aired.

I don't get it, but to each their own.
Many reasons. Mainly to read and follow the GDT as I progress through the game on delay to see what others thought about a play, call, etc.

When your top line gets shut down like the Pens seem to do against us, and the other 9 forwards are slapping the puck around like they were, it is talent. No second or third liner backed the Pens D up at the blueline with speed. No second or third liner caused the Pens d to chase the puck. None of them ever had the Pens on their heels. Its back to that hoping to see the Rangers complete two passes in a row thing again.

If they want to grind it out in the corners then fine. But the big wingers couldn't get to the damn puck. Ugly display of hockey tonight. Ugly.

If Slats is looking to make an upgrade I believe its a skill player on the wing.

And I love toughness, but Rupp is HORRIBLE. too slow to forecheck and not a great fighter. Useless. If he is going to stay on the third line then we are F***ed.

Rupp is proving to still be rather useless. He's an automatic buyout, they should try and deal him now, even if they have to take on another overpaid salary that they buy out instead next yr. Atleast get someone who can score. Anyone can play play energy minutes on the 4th line. I'm sure some AHL bodies can do that

I'm not advocating for Torts to be fired but, something needs to happen. he needs to allow the offense to open up more

Indeed. Torts is far from the problem. That said, they need a new PP coach.

Fair enough, I'm not going to get into a thing with you here in the PGT. I'm sorry I ruined the score for you tonight.

Bring up Haley and let him run around on the 4th line. He can't be any worse.

A few things...I'm not going to go on about this game, but rather the team in general

-Even though he got overpaid, this team misses Prust. Asham is a passable replacement, but he just doesn't quite have the fire Prust did when he played here.

-If the right deal comes along, for the first time ever, I'm open to trading Stepan. Dude looks absolutely lost 90% of the time. I'm really starting to worry about him.

-Lundqvist doesn't deserve his deflated GAA and save percentage as a result of the two Penguins games this season. Talk about being hung out to dry.

-The Nash, Richards, Gaborik line needs to be broken up. We're becoming the mid 2000's Ottawa Senators. The parallels are eerie. Great first line, crap forward depth, solid defense and goalie, but never quite good enough to win it all. Distribute the wealth. The Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik line worked so well last season, why hasn't it been tried once yet 7 games in?

-It would be nice if Kreider came back and played like he did in the playoffs last year in the absence of the captain. He would add a dangerous dimension to the 2nd line if he comes back healthy and actually decides to show up to play.

-Nash is a phenomonal talent, but god damn, he needs to learn how to use his teammates.

-Really liking Stralman's game lately. This defense would be absolutely deadly if we could pair him with Staal and put Del Zotto with Sauer if he was healthy. Hopefully McIlrath can step in next year and take Sauer's place and add that consistent snarl that Sauer gave us on the back end.

Time to get more rest, back at it on Saturday.

P.S. For the love of God, change up the strategy and crash the net on the power play.

Anisimov and Dubinsky arent the solutoon either. More redundant 3rd liners. This team hasnt had a legit 2nd line since 1994.

I'm all about that - if the 4th line actually gets playing time.

To some saying Torts ain't the problem, I beg to differ to a degree. You have a season that started on short notice, some of your players (key ones at that) haven't been playing.

ROLL FOUR LINES.

Awful power play.

No effort tonight.

Rick Nash: 7 games, 1 goal.

Depth issues.


Rectify the issues. Its a short season. No time to mess around.
