This is the same thing as Gaborik all over again...It doesn't matter that Nash has had a bad game or bad few games...he is by far our best offensive threat and not having him out on the top unit getting the most time on the powerplay is only going to to help us lose the game.
and people were wondering what Nash (the only scoring threat) would look like without gaborik. yeah, 5 players will be all over him every game.
yes I object, clearly need more Richards on the PP
I object your objection. Clearly need more Girardi dump in and chases.
That was literally the most mentally challenged thing I've seen all day.
Step 1: Bench Rick Nash
Step 2: Put Dan Girardi on
Step 3: Stop everyone at the opposition blue line
Step 4: Get Girardi to dump and chase all by himself
You put out a non-PP shutdown D man who blocks shots and he is in deep 200 feet away chasing after a puck that's going to be on opposition stick 2/3 times?
Step 5: Switch Stepan with Richards because damn that Derek Stepan for being our best player this year.
putting nash on the ice, even if he is struggling, has a potential for scoring. torts hates offense. boyle and girardi were his go to guys to make sure the PP was as ineffective as possible. boyle goes down. torts's favorite star player gets more ice time.
This is a statement by the rangers that they want a coaching change. They aren't playing hard they have no idea who is on their line one shift to the next or wtf he wants. When a team severely lacks effort and underachieves it's on the coach.
