We also are missing Marc Staal and Ryan Clowe. Do people conveniently forget that (not saying you do -- I know you don't)? I mean, is it just me or are those guys pretty important? Nah. **** it. They aren't.
Eh, I think the breakout that Torts employs sucks, and has sucked for quite awhile. I like all of McD, Moore, Stralman, and DZ on the rush. Staal is also excellent at moving the puck up the ice.

I disagree with you on DZ. He's inconsistent, but I guarantee he would look a lot more effective on, say, Detroit, or Chicago. He's still young, too.

Richards needs to go, yes. He ****ing sucks. It's pretty black and white.

Injuries play a factor too, yes. Clowe would have been huge in this series, as would Staal.

Meh, I think the great thing about Lundqvist is that he wants this team to succeed rather than to be on another team that's successful.

Completely agreed. Torts is being outcoached, it doesnt take all that much to see it. He makes no adjustments to what Boston has done to shut us down. Sure the players can get some blame as well, but the fact is if it isnt working then change it up. Come up the middle instead of the obvious wrap around the boards to the winger that is getting pinched on every god damn time. Is Boston bigger, yes, faster, yes, but Torts could be putting our guys in much better positions than he has. That is coaching, plain and simple. The PP, Im not even going to get started on that.

In all my weeks in this business that was the most somber dressing room I've ever been in. Boyle was livid with himself. Tough loss.

Yeah and he's given us ample opportunity. It's not getting any better. Times up.

LOL, so they're throwing the series to get rid of Torts the Tyrant? I have always HATED Torts, but that's one of the most ridiculous things anyone could say right now.

Sorry. Didn't add "slapshot" shooters.

Either way, the way Torts and Sully run the PP is without a ****ing clue.

3) You guys really need a offensive minded D, like the Bruins have with Krug. Is there anyone from the minors that can be brought up? In general , for much needed scoring punch, who else from the ahl can be brought up??

I hope we win of course, but i'd like to see NYR bring their A game for game 4. Goodluck

1) Tortorella.

2) I don't know. Part of the problem with not getting past the Devils was not having a real gamebreaker outside of Gaborik. However, losing Dubinsky did take away some of the grit. I was never a big Anisimov fan (there's some here who thought he was great), but maybe he did bring more than I saw. Don't know.

3) Problem is, guys like Del Zotto and Stralman and Moore SHOULD be offensive minded defensemen. Heck, even McDonagh and Girardi have a little bit of skill. It's the system that keeps the Ranger D from joining the play, and when they do, they're so horribly out of position, it leads to odd man rushes against.

The Leafs gave the Bruins fits with their speed, besides Hags(who hasn't done much of anything), the Rangers are showing that they are too slow to be a real threat.

How many goals go in because players try to block shots which bounce around Hank or end up right on the other teams stick. If it doesnt work, change it, dont try and force it more.
It's SUCH a ridiculous misconception that the Rangers play dump and chase hockey.

They really don't.

They play a counter attack style, and dump it in when there's nothing else there...half the teams play the same exact offensive style.

Right now the biggest problem in our "system" is that we're not pressuring the points hard enough, for teams like the B's that plays right into their wheelhouse.

Saying they play dump and chase hockey is...

i'm not even going there.

I have to hang this on Slats. He never developed a decent bottom 6 and those key guys from last year (Prust, Fedotenko) were simply cast aside. Secondly, you don't have enough size and grit at the center position. It's going to be amusing watching the devils and rangers struggle over the next few years and then watch the Islanders ascend.

But I need to see a bit more heart, didn't like the effort in this game.

It would be very surprising if the coach was fired after the team got to the second round.

Someone needed to say this.

We all know Sather is not ideal, but guess what? HE IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE> Get over it because he is here to stay.
