Get this team a new coach, try to add a top-6 forward, DO NOT TURNOVER THE ROSTER, and let the team develop. I think that really is a problem, look at teams like LA and Boston. They are cohesive teams that play the system to a tee. This team is just a jumbled mess, these players LOOK like they're barely played together, or they've barely played the system Tortorella has in place.
Torts isn't to blame for Brad Richards and Rick Nash being unable to produce in the playoffs.

If Torts has to go to do something, sure. But **** the big names on this team, besides Hank of course. Absolutely useless.

I agree. He isn't going to get any better. The missing link to our championship run is just flat out missing in action.

I think we all expected when Richards was signed we weren't going to get 9 soild years out of him, but I expected at least 4 decent years, maybe MAYBE 5. We barely got one.

This is worse than Drury. This is worse than Redden for Christ sake.

Get this clown out of here.


How Sather survives tossing abother $35-40 Million dollars of the Dolan's & the Fan's money away downa black hole is beyond me.

Congratulations Boston. That just about sums up the series.

Tortorella was out coached in every respect. He had his team down 2-0, in an elimination game, provide no effort.

The Bruins got one of the most fortuitous bounces I have ever seen to score that goal, but they DESERVED it. This game was Lundqvist vs the Bruins.

Lundqvist played a soft game two, but he gave the Rangers a chance, and Tortorella had the team play turtle defense with a 1-0 lead for the entire second half of the game.

Tortorella is the reason this team lost tonight. Julien has out coached him in every respect. This team won't win with this coach at the helm of the ship.
Scotty Bowman could coach this team of misfits and Boston would still steamroll us! Time to wake up, smell the coffee and put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the senile old man who put this roster together!

Rangers are missing that hunger from last season. Last year they went for pucks like their lives depended on it. This year they seem to hesitate a little, like they're unsure of what they're doing. That's what is costing the team right now.
Yea obviously we're not blaming Hank for the loss but it looked like he had enough time to find the puck based on his outstanding play in his career. The Bruin celebrating the goal in front of him probably made him think it was in too.

Unlike some people, I will never give up on this team. The series isn't over until we lose a fourth game. Until then, I will cheer them on and hope they win.

have to agree with you man. sather ****ed this team up big time trading for nash and he never fully recovered. we have very little toughness, less skill, and we are being beaten by a bigger tougher, deeper team.

if anybody really thought the rangers were going deep into the playoffs, they know nothing about what kind of team it takes to win a stanley cup.

I feel really bad for lundqvist..... at least hes playing like an all world goaltender.....keeping his team in every single game.

Nah they'll probably take the next two, so they can lose the series on home ice for Game 6.

Bad game, bad team right now. Don't know why you would "start over" though. Oh well.

I'm upset. Not because I thought the Rangers would definitely beat the Bruins, but I'm upset they didn't put in the effort. There was no heart. I'm not sure if it was Callahan, or if it's even fair to place that kind of responsibility on the team captain, but I know a big part of it was Tortorella.

At least in our poor games against the Capitals, I can say they outclassed us, but we tried. In this game, they didn't even show up in a do or die game on home ice. That's very upsetting.

Clear as daylight. Torts should just retire and save his face.

Did anyone notice how Pierre ripped Torts pretty bad during the second power play and about a minute after his rant Pierre realized what he had done and tried to shift responsibility to the players and mentioned that lame excuse about how Torts once coached a good power play in Buffalo? I thought that whole series of comments was hilarious.

Consider this post my resignation from the 2013 season. It was lovely seeing you all again. I can't say the same for the team itself, but I digress.

It's so beyond ridiculous to say "completely out coached"

Really? I didn't realize coaching coudl turn a 7 million dollar center whose entire career had been elite but now is a complete bum back into his normal self....

I didn't realize coaching could somehow figure out how to get Rick Nash to score when matched up against the best defensive defenseman of our generation....and one of the best of all time.

The Rangers have lost 2 games by 1 goal, are in the 2nd round of the playoffs...again....

if he's being completely outcoached, that means there are 22 REALLY stupid coaches in the NHL right now.

We're all cheering them on. Well, anybody with a brain of course (this ugly season has really helped bolster my ignore list.)

But we're getting exposed and it's painful to watch.

Kind of want this to be all over so we can finally find out what the hell is wrong with Nash. He's got no jump. He must have some sort of leg injury.

Brad Richards has 8 minutes of NYR ice time left in his NYR career

Mediocre team but still young.

Considering the disappearng acts of Callahan, Nash and Richards and zero contributions from Clowe and Staal, making the 2nd round is quite an accomplishment.

Lundqvist will be that goalie who never wins a title.

Outplayed, outcoached. It's ugly. Retool in the offseason for another go at it. Without Torts and some other dead weight.

Agree on all accounts.

We are the perfect foils for the Bruins to run roughshod over!
Soooo the fact that the rangers have an absolutely terrible powerplay isn't a coaching problem?? or the fact that the rangers have a terrible breakout?

These are coaching problems.... send sather and torts both packing
