Locker room is split. So many different reactions from player to player

If I'm the head coach:

Richards is a 3rd line center and removed from PP
Zooks spends the entire 2:00 on every PP
Pyatt sits, Kreider is in
I pray that Staal gets better
I tell Rick Nash to look for other players and pass the puck and look to get it back. Or shoot earlier
Moore stays on point on 1st PP unit

Somebody softballed the puck back to the point on that last goal.

yes! we can't even GET OUT OF OUR ****ING ZONE FOR LIKE 3 SECONDS

I'm really worked up after this one. it's a discrepancy; a bad one; when you can't score more than 1 goal. And the offense looks lke a bunch of autistic headless chickens behind the net mooning the other team.

We were down 3-2 last year in the first round. We overcame that. I don't remember what it was like here during that time, but I'm sure it was doom and gloom as usual. Every team goes through adversity.
It was a **** show in here. Kershaw said he'd eat his pubes if we won the series. Pretty sure that never happened!

And he played astonishingly lazy defense on the OT goal

I hope Lundqvist goes ballistic. I really, really hope he has reached his boiling point.

Yea I'm just hoping his career isn't over at this point because that's the impression I'm starting to get. Hopefully his blurred vision clears up over the summer.

Also when the Rangers had the puck behind the net, after we had scored the first goal, the Caps collapsed 3 in the box, and intercepted many passes into that area. Rangers never adjusted and kept passing into that area...lol...adjust adjust adjust...

I agree. I actually like Richards on the point a lot. He has scored a couple of goals from the point (I think 2 of his PP goals came from there) and he can create some nice chances. Pair him with Moore and I think you have a good unit. Del Zotto is just maddening at times.

This is why I said this has 2009 feel to it in the gamethread. This BS has been going on since Torts got here. Renney has done better with lesser talented groups.

The powerplay was good earlier in the year when Zucc was on the point. Then he was inexplicably removed from the point and the powerplay has sucked again.

That's the excuse here for when your bank roll bling bling top-flight talent isn't playing up to their paycheck. He must be hurt! I call this the Gaborik Syndrome. At least with Gaborik it was always possible he was hurt since he was playing hurt pretty often.

This is the problem. The other stuff is fallout.
Exactly! How long can a defense and goalie play while the offense scores 0 or 1 goals a game on the road? Is it the system or the forwards? Whatever it is if they win at home there is no way they can win a game 7 playing like this.

Those would be the smart moves but Torts is a idiot who is still stuck in the past. His system doesnt work anymore

I think this place needs a better understanding of the difference between lazy and tired from playing 3 1/2 periods of hockey.

Shocking that different players have different opinions. Just mindblowing. Must clearly mean the locker room is split.

Although it's too late to start now, we have a goalie who'd I'd let face most of the shots thrown at him. To me, like many goalies, is more "in the game" when he's getting consistent work load as the game wears on.

Save the shot blocking for the PK - let Henrik do the rest. Be ready for fast transition up the ice.

With our roster, we're faster than what we play most nights. We don't need to play grinding, collapsing-defense hockey.

I really think Nash is hurt - I saw in one clip from the bench tonight his sleeve was up and bit and he had a hard-shell brace on his forearm to the base of his wrist.

Callahan needs to have a game where he's hitting everything in sight. Outside of the great Erskine hit I've seen him shy away from finishing a check to instead turn up the ice. Not sure what's going on there, hopefully he's not hurt too.

I'm not mad at Boyle. Yes he had a dumb penalty but he otherwise had a great game and it was good to see at least someone out there playing with some intent and urgency.

It's a mentally weak locker room, I'm not surprised.

The country club is back.
