Team hasn't played a decent game in going on 2 weeks now. This was coming down the pike hard and fast. Wouldn't be surprised to see this team lose all their games this week.

Why this constipation, this lack of being hockey players passing and generating plays with each other on a half-decent regular basis?
I think all of the emphasis on shot-blocking takes 10 points off all the defensemen's stats, plus it's going to take two years off everyone's careers.

Really think the system stifles the skill the team does have.

There's no reason Del Zotto should not be a 12 goal 30 assist player. Girardi 6-10 goals, 20-25 assists, McDonagh about the same, Staal similar, even Stralman could put up some decent numbers. This system is killing the defensemen.

We've skipped over DEFCON 1-3 and immediately entered DEFCON 4 this evening

Watching ovi drop em defending a teammate as well as westgath for skinner in car / ott game. Cheap shot on steps and crickets.... This team doesn't seems to be tight like last yr.

We looked better without Boyle playing. All he does is destroy the flow of the game and eat mins which is good for fourth liner but not for the way our idiot coach uses him.

Moore needs 15 min a game, he is going to be good.
Brassard played his best game regardless of points IMO.

Need a callup for pyatt don't care who but we need an spark and he is a waste of space. Can't think of anything he does well.

Once again, fast forward spares me from wasting more than a half hour with this half-ass, half-effort, 50% team. Torts may suck as a coach, but he isn't on the ice.
Buy out Richards, aka Gomez, Drury, Redden. Same crap.
Zucc - by far the most creative, visionary, pound-for-pound, best player.

What..? You're happy winning one game in the playoffs?

Wanting the team to miss playoffs so changes that should benefit the entire organization will most likely come sooner doesn't make people fairweather fans. It makes them fans that want to see their absolutely stacked team succeed and fulfill their potential like they should be. They shouldn't just be scraping by by the skin of their pants, they should be able to sustain some sort of offense on a nightly basis against teams that are worn down and tired. Hell, they should be able to sustain some sort of effort on a nightly basis regardless who they're playing.

Sounds like I should be glad I missed tonight's game. Like M0rbid said, last year was the anomaly.

Torts isn't getting fired regardless, the trade deadline proved that.

They looked like gladiators during the home and home against potentially the best team in the league.

Somehow, this is the same team.

last year you believed they could win any game even if it was by one painfully gained goal.
this year you wonder if they can score one goal much less a game winner.
ugly hockey either way
Coach Messier sounds good to me

As a Mets, Jets and Rangers fan....it's not like I haven't set myself up for failure. It's almost expected.

The Rangers problem will always be consistency. It's their nemesis. Has been for years and years.

That's why it floors me when people start getting excited about a couple of wins. The other shoe is always waiting to drop for the Rangers.
