Posted this in the GDT. Can't complain about Richards on d. He traded places with del zotto who forgot he's a defenseman

I think it's almost better to play a cold Lundquist in the shootout than playing Marty...

In that he won faceoffs? Sure.

His ability to release a shot without over thinking it and not having an Islander take the puck away from him? ..That didn't happen.

miller has gotten ALOT of leeway these past few game definetly more than CK. Miller wasnt too good IMO again. Its ok he is only 19 let him develop more.

What happened to the team last year that played every game like it was their last?

Seems like this team dominates when they feel like it and just don't feel like it all that often.

Actually surprised Biron's % is that high. Nothing against him, he's just been very bad in the shoot-out as long as I can remember.

I was thinking our only hope is if their guys try and deke too much and lose the puck/force themselves into a bad shot OR miss the net. Other than that, once Gabby missed I knew it wasn't gonna go our way in the shoot out

I said in the game thread that this isn't a good sign. Not in the sense that he will be sent down but more of the coach not trusting rookies.

That's not a way to develop players.

I know this won't sound popular, but I think the Rangers slightly played over their heads last year. They were a little ahead of schedule. imo.
At the time, I said I hope this organization/coach doesn't stop letting the kids play. Let them learn and allow them to make mistakes.

With that run last year, the Rangers became a "win now" team. It's showing with the lack of patience/trust from the coach.

How many times this season has this team given a consistent 60 minute effort? Until that changes this team is going nowhere.

He got another undeserved point today. He was horrible. Don't know why he saw any OT time. Where's the accountability, Torts?

That's great in theory, but that would just mean Kreider sitting for the entire 3rd period while Boyle gets moved up to the 1st/2nd Line.

Some of you guys are nuts. Stepan was fine. Kreider would not have made a bit of difference and Boyle was probably one of our best players in the 3rd for God's sake.

Richards, Stralman and Tortorella were awful tonight in my view. I don't know why he sat Miller, why he nuked the lines, and why Stralman saw any ice at all after the first half of the game.

I don't blame Marty. Should have never even gone to a shootout. Rangers got cocky and lazy and gave the game away.

Oh, and for the second game in a row they decide to take 10 minutes off, only this time it killed them. Is it that hard to play a full 60 minutes??

Shows how low the bar has been set for him this year.

Guy is beyond hesitant when the puck has been on his stick this year, unacceptable for a playmaker. Nothing he is doing is crisp out there, aside from 1-2 of his goals.

Saying this team has a long way to go is the understatement of the century. They're just not good enough and thats a fact. I don't expect much from this team this year.
