We can't score. He has 1 goal. Am I missing something?
That single goal which would result in a 3-1 loss in this game.

I could get on board with that. He might not score much but at least somebody in our bottom 6 would be doing something, anything at all. Skating, hitting, something.

I feel like pittsburgh will be out in the first round. Their hot streak and momentum will cool down just in time for the playoffs. Too bad we wont be the 8 seed to knock em out.

MZA passes always crisp and on the tape . I know he's not a real Jam and sandpaper Grinder but Christ Montreal has about 3 guys around his size it seems between Gallagher. , Gionta and Galchenyuk

I love Dubi, but if his contract was still here there would be about 50 trade proposals on the trade thread trying to move him anywhere.

I love the Nash trade, but Nash gets so frustrated, so easily.
Hopefully he works on that.

THe belief that we'd be better off without Nash is patently absurd.
The Blue Jackets are a much more improved team without Nash while the Rangers are much worse with Nash. Granted he probably isn't the problem, but the lack of depth was the main reason CBJ was garbage last year. The same thing with the Rangers this year, except they have a Vezina winner bailing them out.

He's better than Kreider and Miller? Perhaps, but certainly arguable. I wouldn't take him over either of them with his contract at all.

He's not better than Stralman.

He's better than our 4th line. He's better than Eminger. Big whoop.

Brandon Dubinsky..

1 G 8 A = 9 pts

Artem Anisimov
9 G 6 A = 15 points

Rick Nash
12G 16 A = 28 points

Yeah, the Rangers really lost that one....

Subban dominates. I can't believe we thought McDonagh was in this guy's universe, let alone as good as him.

Hard to defend Eminger although he has been good for us in the past. I just feel like the team is more afraid of making mistakes and getting benched/scratched then actually trying anything creative. I have been hoping Torts would loosen up his grip a bit but he won't.

I'm sure the Blue Jackets aren't better because of the trade. They are better because Bob is playing out of his mind and the Jack Johnson trade.

But yeah. It's CLEARLY Dubi and Ani.

This thread is about the game. Not the Nash trade. Keep it on topic.

I don't agree because this team makes pinching mistakes all the time.

It says a lot when Nash has to result to the rougher play to stir things up. He is on a team that's soft as hell and it's noticeable to everyone.

Of top ten teams with fighting majors most in line for playoff birth. Of the bottom ten the majority out of playoff picture currently. I hope all you anti fighting fans are happy with your ***** rangers.

The guy thought he was coming to a championship contender team. And then he plays on a team with invisible Gabby and Richie and is back on a team struggling to just get into the playoffs. Not saying it stays that way if Sather doesn't suck a lot of d this offseason. But of course the guy is going to be frustrated.
