Me too. Idk why he gets in his own head so much. Dude has one of the quickest releases in the game. Come in with speed and shoot for a corner.

Gaborik may be the best Ranger ever at stuffing the stat sheet, but in terms of his impact on the game...it's minimal. It always has been.

1 Goal in his last 12 games...there's a stat for you.
Gabotrick sucks. He's god Awful......and it kills this team. Richards isn't far behind. And Torts has to GO. Pretty much our main 3 problems with this team.

Rangers ice six forwards who can't score. Miller, Boyle, Powe, Haley, Pyatt, and Halpern. I don't expect goals from the 4th line, but the 3rd line can't score either.

How about Pep Guardiola. He's a proven wining coach.

Now, most Gaborik apologists would agree he's sucked this year, I don't see anyone denying that. Point is he's a proven elite scorer having an off year.
Stuff it. Keep stuffing the stat sheet man. You only bring up stats but fail to discuss Gaborik's play. What does he bring this team when he's not scoring? Anything?

When Nash has an off night, he still generates chances. Not Gaborik. Move him. Give it up

common prust is not the missing piece to this team. what a pathetic comment to make. prust may be one of the most overpayed players in the league. yea i like him and hes a good bottom 6 guy but hes making way too much. prust is not the reason montreal is doing so well and we are sucking.
sorry man, but if you think losing prust means nothing to this team......you know very little about hockey.

I will however say that prust, dubinsky and anisimov all being gone is too much to overcome. They bought real jump to this team and sather did nothing to replace any of it. I was never a huge fan of dubinsky, but he and the other two were core peices to this team and their appearance in the eastern conference finals last year.

now look at us......

I would take any coach who says, "Shoot the puck guys, it's ok." over Torts.

It was a combination of an aging building not owned by the team, a relatively weak economy, a weak dollar, and no local people stepping up to buy the team. All of those things are now a non-issue in today's NHL and in the country. Also, I'm glad that Lundqvist wasn't hurt on that Antropov slap shot.

Gaborik finally played RW towards the end of the game and I'm shocked he didn't score 10 goals then and there. Shocked I tell you!

This team looked like they were starting to gel until Staal got injured. The defense is a mess without him. A lot of the team's problems tonight started with the breakout. Girardi, Stralman, and Del Zotto... oof.

There's no way Miller would still be up with the big club if this team had some depth. So many turnovers.

When he's not scoring goals, he's very rarely playing well. In fact, many times he's detrimental, hence his repeated benchings. He loses puck battles, shows no burst, turns the puck over, is absolutely useless on the wall, and floats all over the place. It'd be one thing if he was simply snake bitten right now but was playing well outside of goal scoring. But he isn't. That's rarely the case. He's actually a detriment to his teammates right now, and this isn't the first time.

I understand why people don't want to move him - we need the offense. He fills that void to a degree. Same thing with Del Zotto. But both guys aren't great fits, IMO. I wish we could find a way to do better.

We seriously need to somehow find a way to bring in a LW/3rd center so this team gets some depth.

You really think 26 games is the difference between becoming elite and washed up?


Please answer me this question.
Please.


Are you not at all skeptical of the coaching? Especially since struggles not only are affecting Gaborik but Richards as well? You think its just ****ing coincidence?
