They're entertaining to watch if you enjoy a stress-filled rollercoaster ride every time you tune your TV to MSG at 7:00 PM (NBCSN at 7:30 on occasion).

Like for a neutral casual fan, would you want them to watch tapes of Rangers games?
I'm watching more entertaining hockey in the swedish 2nd division.

They're far from entertaining IMO.

This is by far the most boring season I've witnessed with the exception to 2008-09.

I don't find Rangers games entertaining anymore like I do with other hockey games.

If they were to rig a cup final it would be a leafs or habs vrs vancouver final to get the most ratings ever for a final.

Last season's team was far more entertaining. Has nothing to do with the fact that we had more wins. The team was just so different. Had a different attitude, a different arrogance, a different will to win.

This year's team depresses me.

Of course you don't. Well you win another argument.

In Canada.

You'd need a US team for casual American viewers to watch. Honestly, NBC would probably love nothing more than an LA/Chicago - NYR final.

Last year's team hit and didn't back down from a fight.

This season we have divas.

So it's been a few hours. I took a nap. Let the loss settle it a little more. And this is how I feel:

I'M PISSED!! Usually I would be complaining about the officiating, because NYR should have had more 4 more Powerplays, but the incompetence of the Rangers PP makes me wonder if that would have even made a difference.

Remember that whole "Safe is Death" motto? I think Torts is taking to that saying a little to much to heart. Rangers are playing way to safe defensively, giving the Capitals way too much time to shoot. And it's killing them.

It sucks because I think the personnel we have is good enough. I just don't think Torts is capable of bringing this team to the promised land. Need a coach. Need a new system.

...And I need one of my teams to win me a ******* championship before I die, because tomorrow is never guaranteed.

There isn't a player he likes on this team outside of maybe Lundqvist. \
Every prospect sucks... really? why you here bro?

Dude you have been nothing but a clown on this board for about two weeks. I'm kind of getting sick of it. I can understand being upset after losses, but you just take it to a new level.

It's almost as if you want this team to fail, just so you can be right. Lighten up, bro. We're all Rangers fans around here.

Asking for Kane is downright delusional, let alone adding 3 first rounders and Crawford. Chicago wouldnt trade Kane for the entire Rangers roster, he's that good. He is a young elite, offensive superstar who is the best player on the best team in the world.

Patrick Sharp is a world class player, not sure why you'd be upset in getting him in a deal.
LOL @ not trading Kane for the Rangers roster...Kane is a diminutive winger, who is not good on face-offs, and is as soft as they come. Yes, he is VERY shifty, has silky hands, and insane vision, but what good is that as a Right Winger who needs finishers with him? If you think he would come here and put up 80-90 points a year, you are sadly mistaken. If this was 2004, you would be saying no way Richards can be traded! A clutch playoff warrior and Conn Smythe winner, 90 point scorer ( by the way, more than Kane ever scored) and on a cup-winning team. They would never trade him for the best goalie in the game in his prime! Kane is not even a top 10 player in the league. Toews, and Hossa are better than he is. Think Kane scores as much on the Flames? How about the Blue Jackets?

Top 15 players I would take before Kane.
1.Crosby
2.Malkin
3.Stamkos
4.Karlsson
4.Datsyuk
5.Ovechkin
6.Lundqvist
7.Weber
8.Toews
9.Kovalchuk
10.Chara
11.Doughty
12.Tavares
13.Subban
14 H.Sedin
15.Suter

So have at it, i just named 15 players who I would take over Patty Kane (notice how Lundqvist is on the list), now go and dig up some fancy Corsi stats that say Kane is more valuable than Hossa, Toews, and Sharp combined.

If he was a natural center, who is good for 90+ points a year, and was over a head taller than Zuccarello, then he would make my list.

Saying Lundqvist wouldn't return Kane is either being so far up Chicago's ass or just a delusional neutral "fan" who likes to post on HFNYR. Cut it with the anti-Rangers agenda already, you were being pessimistic the whole playoffs last year, and as far as i'm concerned, you have a plate of crow to eat.

Exactly, we don't need that weak mentality here, stop bashing the Rangers already in every post, go choose a team that's playing well, jump on their bandwagon, and we'll see you in the playoffs soon enough. I don't understand how you're a Rangers fan...
