I like Haley. Solid player. Seems a lot smarter as a player than I originally thought, to be honest.

last time i checked that happened like once in history. i guess being in mediocrity this long makes those pretty good odds for ranger fans.

The Rangers were not playing badly because of a lack of effort. The Jets game plan is similar to that of the Devils last year.

They are keeping us pinned in our own end because the Rangers(specifically their Dmen) are not showing any poise on the breakouts. They are throwing pucks up the wall where two Jets are constantly positioned at all times. Jets players are just intercepting pucks.

If the Rangers continue trying to breakout along the wall(instead of using the middle of the ice), they will struggle to get out of their own end. This will directly affect the offense because our forwards will be too tired once they get out of the zone.

Last time I checked, we're down 1-0 to a team that we suppose to be able to outplay.
Last time I checked, the logic of the 8th seed winning the cup last year has no weight.
Minnesota is all set to win the cup too then. We'll share a cup between the 8th seeds.
And last time I checked, if we don't put the offense together, we'll be in 9th seed in 40 minutes with the Isles leading their game.

This team has shown absolutely nothing this season to suggest that they're a cup contender.

Anyone else here the Giannone comment after Miller made a few moves saying how Torts went over to him, gave him some encouragement (him being miller) and told him to start getting the puck in the zone and chasing it down? Thought that was pretty funny.

The team's bottom six is nothing compared to last year. We can't grind anymore. We can out compete a team like the caps in a grinding game because the Caps couldn't put together 4 good shiffts in a game. Against decent-good teams, we're losing the grinding, board battles. We're throwing away the ability to rely on skill in Nash, Gaborik, Richards. We tried to grind to a cup final, we didn't do it. The Devils out grinded us in the conference final but couldn't grind through the Kings. What makes this year's team a grinding team?

And here we go again with an up an down team and switching lines everyshift. nobody knows who they are playing with before the next period starts..

Its not hard to see Gaborik does not want to be here or just dont care anymore. Here is a guy who can score 40 goals a season and taking crap form Torts who NEVER PLAYED a pro game in his f$#@kin life...

There is $7M each in ( Gabby, Nash, Richards ) and we should have at least extra 100 goals a season. but we have to play defensive game..

I dont know how many times I have to say that Torts lost this team and its time for a change..

You turn the TV on to watch a Rangers hockey game and you never know what your gonna see!!! very frustrating..

Just my own thoughts.........

Last years team felt like "the family band".

Now we feel like one of those washed up bands that still uses the name that they got famous under, but has a different singer that nobody wants to see. Kind of like how the Doors still play as the Doors.

"Grinders" have nothing to do with Richards and Nash missing the net, Gabby not converting on the penalty shot, or the millions of bad passes by Richards, Miller, etc.

I feel like people are always harping on the wrong reasons why we suck.
