regarding some of the posts in the other thread.

I would give these guys the credit they are due when they give me reason to do it.

Yes I am critical, yes I am nasty. I expect more from these guys.

Not sure about you guys but I can't watch the team I root for get out played and out coached game in and game out save one game here and there and think "Boy am I lucky"

What we are seeing is a ****ing embarrassment to the ****ing jersey.

The ONLY guy I am proud of is Hank. That's it.

I'm disgusted with the current product and the guy driving the bus.

It's a poorly constructed team being coached incorrectly but WOOOOHHOOOOOOO we made the 2nd round just to get swept.

I could care about wins and losses. I want a team that doesn't have to rely on the goalie to be in a game. I want a real shot to win games offensively and if at the end of the day we put in an honest and lose...so be it.

What we have now is we have to hope we play lights out and the opposing team sucks or that Lundqvist steals games.

That's not the kind of team I want to root for.

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.

We have a good core. They need to add the right complimentary pieces.
The only way I support a coaching change is if the coach is actually a better fit for the team and a better coach. Otherwise, we need to keep Torts.

To me, the main problem is Sather, but I've said that for years now. I am happy that he can make good trades, but he refuses to build a team. Just look at my signature for my views on him (as expressed by others).

I think they are broken down. Even with a shortened season, look what Torts system does to it's players. They're beaten, they're worn out; add in the ineptitude on offense, game over, man.

Yeah, that was great. It was as if Pierre ripped the PP, then someone came up and told him to stop, so he started slowly backing up on everything. He was right the first time though - he can be too much sometimes but he was right about the PP.

Exactly! Imagine when the team finally clicks together, Boston is bound to fall back down to earth. LGR.

Normally I'd consider myself an optimist but for ****s sake.

This team barely gives me reason to believe, even in wins! Just not our year. Sigh.

Weird game, indeed. There were maybe 3 or 4 shifts the entire game where the Rangers had noteworthy offensive pressure. Against a team whose defensive corps are decimated with injury. Guys standing around. Zero interest in skating the puck into the zone. What good does dumping the puck in do when the forwards are competely still at the blueline? And that powerplay...

The Bruins are a built better, and coached better. But that was an ambomination of an effort and gameplan.

Can't wait to watch Gilroy or the Hamr Thursday night if Stralman is out, which I'm sure he will be.

No worries guys. Only your season on the line. Just sit back and relax, what could possibly go wrong? One team tries to win and the other just tries not to lose. I'll let you figure out which one the Rangers are.

The Bruins are simply a great team. They're better than us. Period. Nothing around it.

As a fan, still believing for miracle. Reality says it's pretty much over.

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

Thank God someone around here has some common sense. Our roster doesn't come close to matching up with the Bruins and their players are so much bigger and more physical than ours are. A total mismatch!

I think between your team and our team there's a combination of players who can win the cup. We just have to keep making trades with each other to find the right combos.

I just hope Strahlman and Kreider are ok. Like not even for this season, but for their careers.

Please scratch Richards and play Lindberg on Thursday night. There's nothing to lose. Lindberg is done with his SEL and Team Sweden commitments.

Torts can't adjust. He's done all he can here.

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.
Completely agreed. Tortorella does a lot of dumb ****, but this loss was on our ******** group of players.

Rangers are so soft on the puck it's not even funny. Old man Jagr is harder on the puck than any player on this team.

Outmuscled, outbattled, undersized. And players who do have size like Nash, Boyle, and Kreider play smaller than they are. Awful.

He could start by actually coaching a PP that functions.

His decision to play a shell-like turtle of a D system giving up tons of possession to the opp in our own zone.... Which is killing us

That's simply not true. Perhaps you have a number of people tuned out or something.

Regardless, the pure nastiness and downright hatred has got to go. That's just absurd to see on here. This is a game. One that we aren't even involved in.

Improve the powerplay or play some offense. Honestly, i'm just sick of the dumbass dumping and chasing stone age hockey the Rangers have been playing.
