That's so wrong. More like we're not tough enough, but this team has as much talent as any team out there.

Pretty similar to his stint here. Except our anomaly wasn't a SC Championship.
Haha, at least he gets credit for Tampa sucking enough to draft Stamkos.

What is that horse **** the Rangers have up in the locker room again?



That's almost as good as "This season's for you."

Or... maybe that's the practice facility locker room.

Don't sell him short because you're pissed off with how the team played. He's one of the best defensive defensemen in the game.

"Not everybody is prepared to win."

Ironic quote considering our coach just boasted about "staying out of the way" of something as important as offense.

What does this even mean? How is a mid first round pick who might make the team in 2015 going to help us for the rest of this season and the next two?

Had to dvr the game, just finished watching...this is a BAD hockey team.

I wish we could lend Hank to an actual contender so he can get a cup, and then get him back here to finish out his career with at least one winning season.

Not worried about the offense, Torts? Did he really say that? I'm gonna need actual confirmation before I go off on him.

The worst offense in the NHL is something to be concerned about as a head coach, Torts.

The Rangers haven't scored a goal that was shot directly into the net by one of their players since Stepan's shorthanded goal in Buffalo.

Lol. This team has barely created any danger in the offensive zone for a couple of games now.

I have always supported him but at this point I'm getting sick of almost everything about him.

I like when people act like NY is the ONLY big bill city with a hockey team. Sure, he loves it here..because we offered him a ~$7mil/season contract. I'd love it in Siberia if they offered me $7mil to play for a team over there. It's unlikely he demands a trade, but I don't think it's completely out of left field for a guy that actually wants to win it all unlike 90% of this team including the coach. Honestly, I could see him jumping to the Devils - close to NY, decent team with a coach that seems to understand hockey a bit better, replacement for Brodeur. His "hatred" and any "rivalry" feelings go out the door once they're the ones signing his checks.

OTT has potted 3 against the Sabres this afternoon. We're officially last in the East in scoring.

The "stay out of the way" approach is not working. Neither is your team.

It's one thing to be bad. But to be bad AND boring is intolerable.

Oh, and Beaver is another in the great line of #19 to grace us in the Sather era. The Ratelle curse.

This. If he's not concerned with the offense, what is he concerning himself with? What exactly his is energy being focused in to? It must be over that hot towel issue when the CBA was being negotiated.
