Jim Cerny: Greetings Magnus from London! Sunny? not so sure!!! differences have been many IMO...Cpas have been better in all facets of the game, except for perhaps goaltending...Torts said today he thinks the Rangers are close and the differences are not so great

Definitely. Scratch Pyatt as he brings nothing to the table.

2-1 Caps.

Outshot 37-21.

Dominated zone possession.

Lundqvist stands on head, rangers play non-breakout hockey.

Torts gets blamed for players being inept.

Too many people have the opinion that the players are inept.

That's why the coach still has his job.

If the players stop responding to a coach, or are playing poorly, it's time to make a change in the organization.

Is it easier changing 20+ players or one coach if it's not working out?

Players simply aren't that good. You can put a bunch of AHLers playing like it's their last game, but they'll still get owned by superior NHLers. Not saying the Rangers are AHL players, but even if they play to full potential, it's still not that good.

But I agree that he should remain in the lineup. When we don't score, the last thing we should do is to remove a playmaker.

Can someone drop their opinion in on this because it never made sense to me: Why does Torts () give Girardi an "A" when Richards or Staal are hurt, but right when they come back he strips it off of him? Why not just leave it and have 3 A's? It's not like the Rangers are going to be the only team with 4 players wearing letters. It's obvious he's a leader, so why always go back and forth with it?

I know it's not a big deal and I'm sure Girardi doesn't care. I just always wondered that. I don't know, seems silly to me.

You're only allowed one captain and two alternates. If you have no captain, you can have three alternates

I'm watching Rangers in 60 of Ottawa game 7 from last year. That team was special. Down but never out. What the hell happened?

Bickel hits the post!

Would like to see them try something tonight.

Hagelin Stepan Nash
Clowe Richards Zuccarello
Kreider Brassard Callahan
Powe Boyle Dorsett

McDonagh Girardi
Del Zotto Staal
Moore Stralman

And for the love of god, will someone just please crash the net for a rebound or go to the net with the puck?

Could someone please explain a novice how post season differs monumentally from regular season apart from that the teams (mostly Rangers) stop scoring? Heard it many times how Zuke will not fit in the play offs due to his lack of size, and sure enough, to my surprise, he's been poor. But don't think the games have been much different physically then the past 15 games in regular season. Actually think he's been of the more physically ept players this post season, but then suddenly he went from 21 minutes to 13 minutes TOI, so I suspect Rosen is thinking what Torts is thinking. Very little pp time as well, in a pp that hardly creates anything. I can see Habs vs Sens maybe is a bit too much for a tiny hobbit, but this series no.

Remember, Rangers, we're supposed to be coming home, not going home. Like one of my English teachers used to say: get the ****ing verbs right.

Francessa on WFAN said apparently Kreider was benched in Game 1 because of how much he missed the net by on two shots.

Know we know Mike is not a hockey guy, but he does have ties to reporters and people that follow the team.

If true, I am just at a loss.

If true, then Girardi, Del Zotto, and Richards should be part of the Black Aces.

If we don't win both at the Garden the series is over.

Probably over anyway, but let's give them a fight.

teams tighten up defensively in the playoffs and theres a lot less time and space to make things happen. people think zuccs won't be able to handle the playoffs with such little time and space. personally i dont think hes looked much worse or better than anyone else. except nash, i thought hes been good.
