We have some playmakers, a lot of grinders but our two finishers our out simultaneously. Honestly, I am beginning to regret the Gabroik trade at present, as much as I like Moore.

I'm not going to agree or disagree with you. But a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in awhile. 2 periods of hockey in an 82 games season is indicative of nothing.

I don't think anyone is denying that they are talented. They are also the stupidest hockey team every assembled.

I'm not. I do that trade any day of the week.

The only thing I am pissed about is not signing Ryder.

my question is; is the effort we've seen tonight indicative of what we'll see for the rest of the season, or will be revert back to what it was a few games ago?

If they can maintain this type of effort while adding back in the injured players we might be able to build something

Oh, so the team has only played well for two periods? Boy, could have fooled me.

When healthy they are a good team. Their depth is pathetic. Your 4th line should be good enough to provide offense like a 3rd line when asked. A 3rd line should good enough to contribute like a 2nd line when asked, etc. etc.

The bottom two lines (outside of the pp goal tonight) are killing this team as they have for years. That's on Sather.

I understand frustration but it pisses me off that people wont at least wait to see the 3rd quarter. this game is still winnable. If you dont think so then you shouldnt watch i guess

Team could use Greg Carey, or any other player with a willingness to shoot.

2-7 is just unprecedented. I know we were screwed with the schedule but I am beginning to think the coaching chance was premature and ill-advised, as well. They need to turn this around.

What cap space did you want to use to get Ryder though? Remove Pouliot/Zucc and we still need another million or so.

By en large, the Rangers are playing great hockey. But as with all our good games, mistakes are being brutally punished this season. Every little mistake you make can be a goal against. Just need to stop making stupid mistakes. Why Pyatt would take a penalty like that, out of sheer laziness I assume, is beyond me.
I agree, but one mistake is all it takes. As good as Talbot has been he couldn't stop that one, too bad.
I still think this is the best game they have played since the Kings game. This game is still very winnable

Well, we saw the effort in Philly. We see it tonight. The effort has been there the whole season, frankly. It's the execution that wasn't there.

They look like they are starting to "get it." Less passes to no one, less defensive breakdowns, better play in the offensive zone, etc.

Plus, we are getting goaltending the last two games. Finally. Here's hoping Hank is 100% when he comes back and it continues. You just can't succeed learning a new system and having bad goaltending.

I never said that.

You said that watching this game should prove to someone that they're a good hockey team. You're dictating the length in this discussion.

I really like the way the Rangers are playing tonight. And if they can find a way to win this game by coming back from being down, would be a huge boost of confidence for this team.

You said 2 periods in an 82 game season. So apparently the team played like **** in all of the other periods prior to this, too.

I agree. The problem is, with three guys out, our current 4th line is really the 5th line.

Still plenty of time. Howard has had a great game but he has also been very fortunate. I have a feeling his luck is gonna run out in the 3rd

If we lose today because of Taylor ****ing Pyatt after how well we have played, I may take a long break from Rangers hockey.

The didn't generate chances in Philly. Tonight they are because they forechecking more and forcing turnovers..

This team is inconsistent. The team you saw in DC was not team we saw in Jersey. The team we saw in LA was not the team we saw in SJ and Anaheim.

This team has no identity.

I got a chance to watch the Philly game and I thought they played pretty well. I was surprised that Mason was even half decent.
