Upshall elbows Nabokov in the head and he proceeds to take his mask off and fall down like he's shot. 3 minutes later, he's up and about and back in goal. Strange.

We have 2 outdoor games in 3 days next year. **** that. I hate those games. The ice can be shotty thereby increasing the chance of injuries. Count me in the hate category for that. One game I dont mind, though Id prefer it was the actual Winter Classic, which should be the only outdoor game in a season.

The point is, we found ways to win games. Doesn't matter how we did it, we still found ways to win games. All the way up until the ECF. There was a point where we had over a 10 point lead on the 2nd place team. This year, this team is finding ways to LOSE games, not win them.

on the first goal he had idiot Strawman standing right in front of him, and a pretty good shot by Shenn....

That second goal was pure crap. this guy needs a rest.

That 10-11 team was mostly blue collar guys and more exciting to watch along with many individuals to cheer on.

I'm sorry, there are few players I like on this team based on their play this season.

This team... it's like watching stone age hockey. Boring, no creativity and emotionless.

1 outdoor game a year is more than enough.

You made it sound like a good thing to be the 10-11 Rangers. It's not. And they won't look as good when Bob doesn't have a season as good as this next year.

You complain about "stone age hockey" yet laud the 10-11 team?

He's not. I want Tortorella gone as much as anybody. Not for Lindy, though.

They really aren't playing as terribly as everyone on here is making it seem. The first goal was a lucky bounce and the second goal was on Nash's skate. They've had chances and will eventually pot a few goals. Although I admit Richards is beyond terrible.

Hear Lindy Ruff is a good coach.
His track record disagrees. Ruff has accomplished nothing. Wouldn't be an improvement on Torts at all imo.

Every time Girardi scores the announcers bring up how he was a producer for the Knights in the OHL and has a bunch of offensive talent. I feel like we see it in extremely short bursts and then it vanishes for half a season.

To get this out of the way early: applauding an injury isn't permitted. Anyone doing so will be infracted.

Last year, the team was greater than the sum of its parts. This year? This team is the equivalent of 2+2 = 1.

I thought we got pretty badly exposed in the post season with our system and roster. We rode Hank with even more dependence from that point on.

Hopefully, nothing is serious.

As a fan, this helps out the Rangers.

Well, with only a handful of games in the season: the Rangers are not going to do a coaching change.

They made their decision when they traded Gabby away(which I was fine with).

Only possible way Torts gets the axe is if the Rangers miss the playoffs and struggle yet again at the start of next season.

Boyle hurt is not good news. Who do we call up if he's out for the next few games?

Spot on, but I'm still always a fan because of the name in the front, not the names on the back. I'm just crossing my fingers so Tortorella is gone sooner rather than later because this roster is capable of SO much more its not even funny.

We would be one of the top teams right now if we played every first and usually second period like we play in the third.
