it IS unbelievable, and Richards isn't the only one guilty of it either

I agree. Honestly, if he cuts that one thing out of his game, it drastically would change his performance.

I've never seen so many drop passes from someone not work. Its absurd.

Torts the comedian:

Torts, again looking at the positive: "We didn’t take a too many men on the ice penalty, so that’s good news."

They just might with the right offer waved in front of their noses . Do you think they would not take the best offer for him even if it was the Rangers ? He would be a rental...it would not affect the Isles next season as the Rangers can't afford him past this year anyways...thus they take a good offer and enjoy the rewards from it for years to come...that nectar would be sweeter for them then trading him anywhere else IMO .

Nobody should be upset because they lost in the shootout. Everyone should be upset that there was a shootout. Giving up a two goal lead to an awful team that didn't manage to put a shot on net for the first 13 minutes of the game is infuriating; doing it after once again generating nothing on 5 on 3 is enough to turn even the most level headed fan apoplectic.

If you take out the infantile showcase after the 65 minute mark, we're looking at two ties resulting from blown multi goal leads, the latter against the worst team in the division. The Rangers havn't scored a single goal with a 2 man advantage all season (edit: I forgot about the home opener). They haven't scored a power play goal that wasn't the result of a breakaway or a broken play in the month of February. There is every reason to be infuriated, those directing their anger at Biron and what happened after the final buzzer sounded are just looking in the wrong places.

ah. I couldn't find a stat but I was pretty sure that I hadn't seen one all year and that I had seen every game; but now I recall that the home opener was the one game that I missed.

It was a perfect game to not watch. I think that was our only 5 on 3 ppg all season.

I am pretty sure it was, I've watched every other game and all I remember is a ton of frustration.
