I personally would take Nash over Gabby because Nash is a bit younger and Gabby's play has been poor for more than just 5 games, however big those games may have been. With Nash, maybe it's an issue of him not being mentally prepared for the playoffs. With Gabby, maybe it's an issue of him losing the elite skills that he built his game around. One problem can be fixed and the other can't.

Lundqvist needs to steal one. He's had a lead after 20 mins in two of the losses. Not clutch.
Agreed, but Lundqvist wasn't the reason we lost tonight. I was not happy with his play in games 3 or 4, but he stepped it up tonight. The team mentally breaking killed them.

Lundqvist is the only reason we don't lose these games 6-1 like Montreal

It's time for this season to be over anyway. Why delay the inevitable?

You can't possibly tell me that you think the team playing better post-cancer extraction is not because the cancer was removed. Even Strahan and others admitted it was good to get that element out.
Coughlin did what he had to do ensure he still had a job. It's not only Barber that called him out to being too draconian: Strahan also called Coughlin out, the only difference is he did it to his face.

Even then, you're bringing up a coach who took his team and won two championships versus a coach without a clue.

They still had to win one game on the road to fend off elimination.

And in my opinion, when you're in a Game 7 home ice doesn't matter. It's bigger than that and it's anyone's game.

Washington media didn't even give Holtby a star of the game tonight. Lundqvist got third.

He got 1st last time they lost in OT.

Lundqvist is the problem here.

Looks like Caps defense is working, it will probably defeat us at the end...

well i agree nash is probably the better choice at this point in their careers im just saying its not fair to call out gabby for injuries and what not but nash gets a free pass all because hes apparently a much more elite player than gabby.

Frankly, I just had more confidence in that team.

This team is a mental midget.

Hank is a god amongst NYR fans and for me, he is #2 behind Leetch as the greatest Ranger ever. I would however lose a lot of respect for him if he called out the coach to publicly be fired, even if it is Torts.

But I have a big concern for Hank's FA status. The Rangers have 1 yr to try to convince their greatest goalie of all time to stay put with this franchise. The only way to do that is to make a deep playoff run, which I don't see possible with these group of players. From now on, I will appreciate very single start from Hank like it'll be his last.

It gets out no matter what...Messier's feud in the 92-93 season was widely known even though he never went public, it split the room and led to missed playoffs and Roger getting fired after winning the Presidents Trophy in 91-92.

The line that Joe said about Boyle, MZA & Brassard being the 'creative' line for the powerplay puts this teams offense in perspective.

In what world is Brian ****ing Boyle a part of a creative line on your team?!

Glee? No, just accepting reality. Sorry you don't agree with my opinion, but this team just isn't good enough. They don't belong.

Rick Nash is not capable of playing in the playoffs. People got on Gaborik for playing twice the game Nash is playing now.

Yeah, I agree with you there. I don't think they're very unequal at this point but Nash is going to be preferable in the next few years.
