I knew this would be a soul crushing devastating loss, i just wasn't sure what type it would be. I was leaning towards a down by 1 late like Montreal, instead it turned out to be the Pittsburgh variety.

Agreed, although Oates is not the solution, he's not the root of the problem either. We've seen this movie under two other coaches.

Only one common denominator here.

If they'd swapped goalies pregame, it'd be 2-1 Rangers right now.

The difference? Holtby was better, roster was better, Thomas was worse than Lundqvist, and every game was a coin flip. Let's not pretend that they were some juggernaut.

6.6 seconds left still hurts more to me than any of the last playoff losses recently. The Flyers OT goal in game 7 pretty tough too. What angers me is this team never learned from those moments. I don't want a total blowup, but some changes need to be made. Whoever is out drinking and partying after this needs to go.

Oates had them playing some of their best hockey in years. Why can't the players ever be held accountable for melt downs? They've burned through like 4 coaches in 3 years.

What happened to our incessant forecheck from the first two games? It's as if once the guys realized we weren't going to sweep them with that kinda play they started to sit back more.

But they didn't fold. The reason every game was close was because of the system they played.

I'm not pining for Hunter, mind you. What I'm saying is this team needs a coach like Hunter. Someone that doesn't take **** from anybody, especially the players. Someone that lets these guys know who the boss is. Someone like Torts. Its the only time I've seen these guys not fold.

The GM has to hold them accountable by shipping their ***** to Edmonton. Instead, we'll retool a few 4th liners and try the same garbage again...

Exactly. The physicality, the forecheck pressure etc. Everything from the first two games disappeared.

Actually some may want to go to Edmonton after this. Plus the cost of living is cheaper.

Next round is Boston vs NY. The two dullest teams in the east.

It didn't just disappear. It disappeared because the Rangers played much better. I give them full credit. They were the better team since game 4.

Rags grinders and goalie beat Caps grinders and goalie. No scoring stars showed up in this series.

Oates didn't adjust the lines except for an injury. That's pretty effing bad. I wouldn't fire him though. MoJo and Backstrom should have been on different lines then Ovechkin midway through game 4.

GMGM has to go. He re-signs all the fringe players right before hte playoffs and guess what, none of them show up in the playoffs. They secured their job for another year or two. Stupid. Who cares about losing them? Honestly don't think you can find another John Erskine or a Jeff Schultz in the free agency? There's 100s of them in the minors.
