Maybe it's the heart, and we can either bring in more talent or more heart. Guys like Powe and Halpern are a good start, but no one has replaced Prust, Fedotenko, Dubinsky, etc
Ok so lets go with that and see where we land. Gotta try something.

I saw signs of an actual hockey team being on the ice at times but the current roster is not going to cut it. They need to get healthy and quick or they are in deep ****.

So easy to see in his post-game that Torts has ZERO confidence in Kreider. When he can be gone, he'll be gone (back to the Whale, not traded)

Miller has him on the D right now, that's for sure. He's quite good in his own zone for a 19 year old. But aside from the game against the Islanders, Miller has been invisible offensively.

Before being sent to the Whale, in the four games after returning from his injury Kreider was one of the best Rangers on the ice. I think that demotion to the Whale really ****ed with him, and now he's not getting his chances to show what he can do with offensive talent. I get the argument that "if he can only put up points playing with Richards or Stepan than he shouldn't be here" I get that thought process.

But for ****s sake people, not even Nash would put up points with Bickel, Mashinter, or Boyle.
Torts made some adjustments to his game...

I wouldn't bother drafting any player with offensive talent until Tortorella has been replaced.

I can't tell if this is sarcasm or not. Please G-d let this be sarcasm. I'm from the school of thought that the guy that's played great for your DESERVES to be called out more than say Bickel. Bickel is in over his head. Lundqvist is obviously capable of better than this garbage. Today he underachieved. I don't completely agree with Machinehead, while Lundqvist hasn't been nearly as good as last year, I don't think he's been bad until today. He had a rough first 3 games, since then he's be mostly consistently good to very good (one hiccup was against NJ). Today was something else.

he acts like JT Miller is perfect. yes Miller does some good things BUT he is also a turnover machine and his defense is not good at all

Absolutely this times infinity.

Probably better we miss out on this year, it'd be a great career ruined.

He MUST. Or the team is going absolutely nowhere.
Even the best goalies in history in a big playoff series have stolen 1 or 2 games for their team. If the team is going absolutely nowhere based on the goalie than we should resign from the NHL. The team in front of hank is horrid. And that will be the reason for the teams demise.

Trade Boyle for a 4th Rounder (regression from that 3rd but deal with it)

Trade Gaborik get some more depth and a 1st back.

Amnesty Richards.

Demote Bickel.

There will be good games and some bad games.

What about the 6.6 million invisible center with an 'A' on his shirt? Or the 7.5 million invisible 'goal scorer'?
exactly. hes played 11 games, only 8 of which he was healthy for. and he was benched for half the game in a lot of his games played, but people expect him to be fearlessly throwing his weight around and be a difference maker under those circumstances. torts' impatience has rubbed off on some of the fans.

Why is it that Fatso Broduer has basically the same stats as Lundy, yet the devils are teetering between 1st and 2nd in the division. Defense anyone?

How about this team needs to be better. The only time I noticed Beaver was when he fumbled the puck on our last powerplay. Did Gaborik even play? Oh right, instead of shooting on a 2 on 1, he tried to pass it to Beaver.

Are the people talking about the pick joking around or did they forget that we don't have it? Considering how many respected posters are talking about it, I'd assume the former.

Like I said, he's far from the only reason. Last year he stole games and points regularly. He needs to be better.

On that play I just had to laugh. Followed up immediately with a weak pass from behind the net right onto the stick of a Winnepeg D to start a clean breakout the other way. Comical.

of course it's sarcasm... oh brother put down the pipe

i think he's been good so far overall, but when we need him to step up he lets us down... as good as he is, he's been crown the king prematurely... he hasn't won anything yet.... yet....

he's got to play his best, until we get our act together or they're done
