You can absolutely do worse than 8th/9th and top 5 defense in the league statistically. Boucher has already done worse this year. He was just fired for doing worse.
boucher has a **** defense and a bad goalie.. They scored plenty of goals to win games.

Even if Gaborik hasn't been good on the shootout this year he had a breakaway goal last game and almost scored one tonight. There is no way Richards is the best option.

I can understand why Richards is getting chance after chance... The team needs this guy to get the rest of the offense going. He obviously isn't going anywhere right now. I can see why Tortorella keeps throwing him out there.

At the same time, there's other players that can do better than he's doing right now.

Eh, stop crying for attention and creating unrealistic expectations. Although, you got my attention because of how much I vehemently disagree.

First one was a lucky fluke bounce and he had absolutely zero chance on that Ovechkin deflection.

And he made a game saving save at the end of the 3rd to get us a point. We don't get a point without him IMO.

He teaches offense. We have a goalie and defense, which Tampa didn't

Team would of been better off taking the whole year off and having a random lottery to pick fans out of their seats to play each game.

Richards has to be 1/15 as a Ranger in the shootout. Yet he continues to use Richards.

NEVER ****ing benches Richards.

If I was Gaborik id say **** Tortorella and just ask for a trade. I dunno how these guys can stand playing under this ****ing clown. I really dont.
I guess Gaborik is a lot more mature than you are.

I have a shirt that proves it, therefore this "Torts can even make a mistake" belief is invalid.

No reason for Richards in that position. Was tried multiple times last year and he didn't score one shootout goal. Gaborik, Kreider, Hags. Anyone but Richards.

Dubi would fit in well with this team in the 1 goal club.

Lundqvist played a good game I thought. Key saves at good times. I'm starting to get the feeling that he's becoming very frustrated with the way the team in front of him is playing. I think it's unlikely, but if the Rangers keep sucking and end up getting blown out sometime soon, I can see him pulling a Roy and just saying, "that's it". Again, unlikely, but I'm sure Habs fans didn't expect that either.

We have a good defense in part because of Torts. You can't crap on his gameplan for being too heavy on defense and then lift up the individual defenders like their performance has nothing to do with the strategy.

TB scored goals yes - won games? Not so much. Check the standings.

Kreider has actually proven to be very good on breakaways.. Why did he not get a shot in the SO? Oh, I forgot because Torts has his favorites.

No Boucher teaches the trap while the greatest goal scorer of our generation carries his offense. Boucher would be more of the same.
