first time this season so disappointed in the team.. all i know is DZ played very well tonight and Moore.. both were the only highlights..

Im done with richards.. guy deserves to be on the bench.. i never ranted about him before during the year, but enough is enough.. guy has no stones and drive to play..

0-5 is embarassing.. we played bad yes.. 0-5 on the PP shame shame shame.. just brutal..

I don't even care if they get steam rolled. As a fan I want them to go as far as they possibly can. If the farthest they can go is 5 games into the first round, okay.

Another great example of a game where Torts is completely out coached. You're a ****ing NHL coach, try to pretend you know what you're doing. How does this team come out every first period completely unprepared for a hockey game. ALL YOU DO IS PLAY HOCKEY, THAT IS YOUR LIFE SKILL. Totally unacceptable.

Richards on the PK? GREAT IDEA!! He hasn't been horrible since... January 19th or anything. Why would our PK centers NOT be Stepan and Powe? With Callahan and Hagelin on the wings. Brassard was the only player to show up for a full 60 effort. Lots of horrible hockey from almost everyone on this team. Just a pathetic effort.

I really see no reason to keep Richards past next season unless he rejuvenates himself and scores 70+ points.

He needs Richards gone because he has a man crush on him. The slug can't even stand up for a shift. A real coach killer when it comes to Torts.

Not only do they not practice offense, they don't practice how to win faceoffs.

I swear Michael Del Zotto is the dumbest Ranger since Alexei Kovalev.

How does this team score three power play goals with players that had gotten to the Garden 20 minutes before the game, yet can't do a thing after they get acclimated to the "system"?

**** *** TORTS!

I would say Boyle is POTG. By way of not finishing the game, he actually sucked the least.

Awful coaching cost us this game. How many times are we gonna see three guys below the goal line. It should be two battling for the puck while the third guy looks for a soft area in defensive coverage in between the slot and dots. Watched the flyers do it all game tonight.

On the last play, Nash had to throw the puck at the net when we should have had one forward not named Callahan (was behind the net) sliding into the high slot in WIDE OPEN ICE with the rest of them going to the net to keep their defensemen lower and create more traffic infront.

That's all coaching folks. Junior level stuff right there. It takes two seconds to go over in a video session if you know what you're doing. Unbelievable that that might actually be the problem with a NHL coach.

You should be voting for Richards, Callahan and a player of your choice (Lundqvist, the scrubs, Nash, Hagelin, the ****** defense)

Lundqvist wasn't all that great but therein lies a problem.

Hank has a bad game here and there and the team is completely incapable of bailing him out.

Meanwhile, the team can play like absolute **** for weeks and he'll cover their *****.

What I want the team to do from year to year is show progress, even if it is just one small step forward. This season has been a major step back.

They are too dependent on Lundy being god-like.

Absolutely agree......i Called that he should be stripped of the C. He's not leading in any way, shape, or form. Period

Also....all the Nash Bashers....at least Nash is trying to make a difference. Sure he's had a couple bad games, but it's not like his Linemates (like Cally) nor even Stepan have been getting him the puck NOR making any plays. He can't do it himself......and what I've seen is that his line can't even get into the offensive zone with the errant passes and weak attempts at gaining the Blue Line. And half the time...they are pinned in the D-zone...so it just burns his shift out.

I thought Zooks and Brass had good games and Stepan scored and came close to tying it. **** the rest of our forwards though. No urgency, no heart.

Scoring less than 3 on STEVE MASON is unforgiveable. Like Avada Kadevra, Crucio, and Imperio levels.
expelliarmus ftw.

I hope to God you people are ironically voting for Callahan.

Where the hell has he been this season? Heart and soul of the team MY ASS.

Edit: oh three biggest losers... too bad I'm on my phone and don't notice. My votes def go to Richie, Cally and Nash then.

So Hank has an average night in net, and the team can't pull it together and play hard.

They run like chickens with their heads cut off in the d zone, have constant turnover in the neutral zone, and have no clue on how to handle themselves in the offensive zone!

A recipe for success if you ask me.
