The last #1 overall forward to not end up being elite is probably Nathan Horton 10 years ago and he's still damn good. Those picks are infallible.

Hank looks like a BEATEN man.

He never blames his team but he just said "I have to give us a chance to win and whatever happens in front of me, I can't control. I have to be better though".

And, IMO, he still gave us a chance to win tonight, keeping it 1-0 until 12 minutes left in the third. He's human. But he gives this team a chance to win 99% of nights. The team in front of him is playing awful, awful hockey.

Lundqvist, for the first time in a while, looks as miserable as he did during the 2007-2010 era.

if you are sather or dolan, you cannot panic and fire torts in a short season with no training camp. Torts is known for his training camp because it brings the team together, what you are seeing right now is the problem without a torts training camp. You can't base the teams play of this messed up season of only 48 games that is so out of the norm. I said before if you go through a full training camp next season and about 30 games into that season then you contemplate letting Torts go. Not now when there are only 21 games left in the season, no coach could come in here and change this team in 21 games. It would take over 10 games for a new coach to get his gameplan into a team by then its too late if you aren't in the playoff picture.

Lundqvist interview sounds like a mini Torts. One word answers. I feel for him, he sounds so down after a loss, especially today!

He had no stomach for PA Parenteau either. We could use his puck control and creativity right about now.

I think he rides it out. He's only signed for next year.

Exactly, I wouldn't have traded for him in his draft year. You don't trade a player of Ryan McDonagh's quality for a kid who has zero NHL games. You just don't.

You're right, Eric Staal went first that year. That makes the last one Patrik Stefan.

But then again, we are the Rangers. Leave it to us to find the next bust I'm sure.

Rangers fans think ANY of our players will get Taylor Hall? Keep dreaming.

Hey bro at least we both get to watch UFC 158! That's the only thing keeping me happy. I got Condit, and GSP.

There is another player on that team who couldn't score here and went off to make a bit of a career for himself. Infuriating, honestly.

McDonagh played 0 NHL games at one point.

Scott Gomez was a proven winner, former elite #1 center.

Are you people serious with this crap? God it's tough to be here sometimes.

No, Henrik will not be demanding a trade. He will be a New York Ranger for life. He loves New York and won't leave.

These boards after tough losses and losing streaks are brutal. The issues are elsewhere.

I guess systems really do play a big role because Johnny Malkin was HORRIBLE here. I'm really never one to overreact but for the love of us Ranger fans who like watching exciting hockey, please fire torts now.

Game after game is a snoozer

We're not gonna get Taylor Hall, no. What I'm hoping for is someday getting a pick that will get us a guy of his mold.

That's kind of my whole point. Players as good as Hall never become available. We need to draft a gamebreaking forward.

You won't have to imagine it. Hank will leave NY if this team continues ******** the bed every season.
