Mike Sullivan RT @akg414xls: @JimCerny Jim There seems to be some confusion among fans. Which coach is responsible for the PP ?
Whatever...Buck stops with the head coach, if he sees it's not working he needs to step in and try and fix the situation. If that means he himself takes that over or bring in someone else, that is the head coaches responsibility. I think we have a big enough sample size to see that whatever Sully has been doing is not working.

Bottom line is, the person responsible for the PP needs to be fired. It's not like he's new here. The PP has been a total joke since he's been here. Either Torts fires Sullivan (which he will never do), or eventually, Torts has to get the axe.

Dump and chase is not an effective power play strategy.

Something needs to be done. If nothing changes (and I don't see it changing) then someone needs to get fired. That's how things work when you suck at your job.

Torts says coaches must share responsibility on PP issues: "We are not putting all of the onus on the players...we're in a jam here"

'09-'10 18.3% ranking: 13th
'10-'11 16.9% ranking: 18th
'11-'12 15.7% ranking: 23rd
'12-'13 08.6% ranking: 30th

It's the players! Added Gaborik. It's the personnel! Added Richards. It's the talent! Added Nash. It's the execution....

Our offense sucks... period. PP, even strength, whatever. There's almost zero offensive creativity with this team.

it's because fans complain too much. If we were happier there wouldn't be a problem

Truer words...

Easiest solution is to eliminate the fans.

Torts needs a math lesson
Today he said
Quote:
"We´re a quarter of the way through the season right now"
9 games played out of 48 = 18,75%
25% is in 3 games
Maybe this is why they keep sending out too many men on the ice?

We're ranked ****ing 30th. There's only 30 teams. That would be dead last.

The time to eliminate the fans would be if they weren't complaining about that...

I don't know. Is it ever really a bad time to murder all the fans?

I'm right, you're wrong, the end.
Maybe I'm reading too much in between the lines here, but is sounds a bit like Torts didn't have the balls to fire his buddy. Instead, he went the used car salesman route and tried his best to pump the tires of the biggest lemon on the lot to get rid of it.


The one thing that really bothers me about this club is a huge gap in the quality of coaching between structured practices and systems, and making adjustments on the fly during a game. While practices and systems look solid, it almost looks like the coaching staff has no clue what they're doing on the bench during games, and they're just throwing random lines together at times when they panic.

If this were Hollywood, we'd find out in the last scene the New Jersey Devils were using evil dopelgangers on the Rangers' bench during games.

What I don't understand is if Richards is such the PP specialist he was made out to be, and Gaborik is the elite sniper he was made out to be, and Nash is as dynamic as he was made out to be, and this guy and that guy and that other guy all have such high hockey IQs, how come these elite players who can "make things happen" can't just run the PP on their own accord? How come they can't make anything happen? I don't get why they can't or don't just say "Wow, this isn't even close to working, we have to do something else."
