Insane. Fast should be in Hartford instead of wasted on the 4th line.

Why not play Zucc on the 2nd line, and put someone whose only talent is being heavy on the 4th, like Pouliot

yea he should but so should others. Do you want to see Powe and Asham?

Bottom line is Nash , Callahan, Hagelin is making his team look worse than it is. At the same time the truth is they don't have enough depth, kids are not ready. They are gonna need to get healthy before this gets any better

I suppose the reason Pouliot is not on the 4th line might have something to do with averaging 36 pts/82 games over the past 3 years.

But no, let's base our evaluation on the 8 games that we have seen him play so far.

That's right Zuke should be on the first line, hell double shift him. On second thought, don't, it'll drop his value from a 4th round pick to a 7th

8 games into the season and the Rangers are 8 points out of a playoff spot.

They need a win. I dont care how they get it. Dont care about style points. If they find a way to get healthy and start playing well during the rest of the season at some point - they could find themselves looking back at these games as the reason why they didnt make it. If the losing continues at this clip, the way the new alignment is we could see the Rangers realistically be out of it by the end of November, barring a torrid stretch of winning, something like a 10-0 clip.

Do what you have to do to get a win tonight, or at least a point.

Stepan needs to produce something. Enough is enough. He put himself in this situation hes got to get himself out.

Draw penalties to get on the PP. Dive, fake it. I dont care. Crash the net. Cheat on faceoffs. They need to get desperate. Right now.

Zucc was in the top-6 all season prior to his scratching. He did nothing with it then, why does AV know nothing about hockey reinserting him to the line-up with Moore and Fast? The onus is on Zucc now to prove he should stick. He was given ample opportunity.

This whole idea of players needing to be in the top-6, or playing with other "skill" players in order to produce every night going around here is a weak argument. Yes, they shouldn't play with goons, but the excuse is getting old.

Those two can't finish his play. Zucc needs to be on a line with players like Brassard, Richards, Nash and Hagelin, and play more than 8 mins a game to be effective. Zucc on the fourth line is just silly.

Missing this one as well. Between work and other commitments I haven't caught our last few games. Missing this one may not be the worst, though Talbot looked alright in what I saw of Rangers in 60.

The lineup is looking BRUTAL though. I mean real bad.

Zucc playing is just silly. He isn't an NHLer. Trade him or waive him,

Gabby, Anisimov and Dubi have combined for 22 points so far. Our top 5 scorers have 22 total.

4th line players should be playing 4th line minutes not quality prospects that need to be developing their offensive abilities with 18-20 minutes a night. Haley, Mashinter, Asham and I can't believe I'm saying it, but even Powe.

Check it out, if Zucc feels this way then he needs to shoot the puck more and score some goals himself. Stop relying on teammates to finish your plays.

Zucc scored goals in the SEL, he didn't just rack up a dillion assists. Where is his shot? He has a good shot, use it.

The Zucc fan base has been using this, "no one can finish his passes" excuse since he was signed. It's not an excuse anymore.
