He's been garbage a lot.

He looked good in the beginning of the season but sure enough DelZaster came roaring back with a vengeance.

Trade him or Girardi for a forward. When MDZ is bad, he is BAD.

He has a lot of wear and tear and it is showing. Maybe with a good rest and a change in the system next year he can play to his full potential more consistently.

He's chunky, and with Torts still being employed, Big Buff would make a great shot blocker; could give Lundy a run for his money.

Flash in the pan? What? Del Zotto is not a bad player at all. Stop with your ridiculous hyperbole.

You clearly are not thinking about that little thing called the "salary cap." Girardi is going to command pretty big money as a UFA. Del Zotto is still cost-controllable. Girardi has a LOL Star game appearance and is generally considered a very good d-man (which he is). He's going to cost 5+M to keep. Maybe even bordering 6M.

Mcilrath couldn't have played any worse than Hamrlik or MDZ

I am actually going to agree with JOrts on this one, BB. I would have liked to have seen Mac get a chance. Look, Torts was given four bad options.

A rookie with no experience, Hamr, GiLOLroy, and he-who-shall-not-be-named. He went with his gut and picked Hamr. But I would have liked to have seen Mac get the call tonight. I mean, it is what it is and I can not fault Torts for the decision at all.

But hindsight is always 20/20.

Look, I hate John Tortorella. But that is the last thing I am going to get on him about.

Look, Torts made a choice, but he made the same one I would have. Hamr should have been the least bad of three bad choices.
I would have chosen Hamrlik over Bickel and Gilroy, too. I said a special prayer before this game, praying that Hamrlik will just be adequate.
The way he played on that go ahead goal, wow, just so sad.
But, that's what it is when you have Staal and Stralman out. I don't blame Tortorella. I do laugh at how Hamrlik conducted himself on that specific play, and wish that I did not have to witness such incredibly bad play.

While true, it's always hard to know if UDFA college players like Krug will pan out. So there is quite a bit of luck involved with that signing.

How many goaltenders currently playing would you want in the nets ahead of the Lundqvist of this year's playoffs?

I'm not disappointed at all. We were beat in every facet possible by a vastly superior team.
Del zotto was gutless out there. Refused to pay the physical price resulting in countless turnovers. Can't teach what he lacks and I want him gone.
Can't bring this group back as is. I was high on clowe then I watched him skate hope we get him at about 3.5 he's not worth 5.

One cup since I began following them in 1968. Powerplay at 8% and PK at 75% Completely and totally unacceptable. Here is their grade for this year: FAIL. Coaching: FAIL: GM: FAIL (see Roman Hamrlik).

Our top 6 D are pretty good when healthy with McD, Staal, G, Stralman, Moore and MDZ. Problem is when more than one guy goes down we are forced to use weak 7-10D. I think McIlrath will be ready to be a 7/8 guy next season.

I don't think we should buy our Richards just yet (next season maybe) so our centre depth isn't horrible with Steps, Brass, Richards and Boyle (Boyle is a 4C in the regular season, 3C in the playoffs but for some reason he cant do it in the regular season) Our winger depth if we resign MZA (100% should) and Clowe (I would, not sure if others would) is Nash, Cally, MZA, Hags, Kreider, Clowe and then the 4th line, isn't bad but for it to work we would need a coach who plays offence not a 6 goalie system.

Torts system worked well in 11/12 because he had his foot soldiers like Prust, Duby and Feds, but this team doesnt have that same gumption, and they need a more free wheeling offensive system

Oh, I agree, man. Just look at my post above. I don't fault him for the choice at all. But I do think that it would've been a better choice to put Mac in. All in hindsight, obviously.

Girardi was half of the pair that shut down a red hot Ovechkin. Vs. the Bruins he was fine. He had that horrible game 3, but that was the only bad game i've seen from him this playoff. What else do people want?

But the Kreider part. No. Torts doesn't need to develop him. Torts needs to go bye bye and a coach who understands offense and modern hockey systems needs to develop Kreider.
I also think MDZ would benefit from a coaching change. He's a talent that plays a bit scared of making mistakes. And when he plays like that, he plays so tight, that if he had a lump of coal in his ***, by the end of the game it would be a diamond.

Moore does make him expendable though.
