When a 19 year old in his first NHL game played the strongest you know the rest of the team sucked. Gabby and Richards are so brutal...for the money they make we could have so much more value. DZ struggled but it's the first game this year that he has. The big guys need to step up and step up consistantly.
The main problem is that Gaborik, Nash, and Richards have been garbage so far this year. Not even close to living up to their wages and expectations. If those guys started to play well the powerplay wouldn't suck and the team would be scoring more on even strength.
Richards and Nash have 7 points each in 9 games and have been fairly consistent producers. If anyone is the problem in that trio it's Gaborik. He's gotta stop with the hatrick every 2 weeks act.
Last 40 minutes was impressive, but the first period shortcomings on the PP did us in. Brodeur looked good and the Devils cashed in on opportunities. It's now almost 10 games in, and I'm done giving them a free pass. Time to wake up.
Felt like a weird game. Maybe it was just the MSG broadcast having really ****** sound but the whole game just seemed to lack energy or any feeling. Nothing seemed in sync or like it ever settled down
At any rate the Rangers maybe need to figure this thing out quick and it's time for Torts to stop the optional skates and days off. The team looks like it needs practice and to stop overthinking everything that happens on the ice
