Lombardi is not perfect.Marc Crawford is not the greatest coach in the NHL.That was his first hire.Crawford was the easy and safe coach.Lombardi has 25 people in his front office-Mike O'Connell,Ron Hextall,Jack Ferreira,Jeff Solomon.What do they all do?Lombardi saw fit to hire and then fire scouts.Dan Cloutier?Nice one.2 years/$6.2 million.

Look at this response by Loser Hanlon about the gap

"I wish it would have happened three more times," Capitals Coach Glen Hanlon said. "We tried as hard as we could, but at the end of the night, we got beat by a better hockey club."

Someone forgot to change the batteries for the board gap

I'm too lazy to look back through all these pages in this thread and I was unable to catch the game last night (Celebrating V-Day last night with the fionce because of a busy Wed.), but what were the lines last night?

Kudos to Rags for overcoming the karma in that game.
Not to be a nitpicker, but wouldn't KARMA be the force that made the Rangers overcome their bad LUCK rather than the other way around?

I was amazed that the normally quiet and reserved Lundqvist would make a comment like this. I dont disagree mind you, but Henke isnt the one I would expect this from :
Quote:
"I think it's a joke to have a board like that in the NHL," said Henrik Lundqvist, who yielded two goals or fewer for the ninth time in 11 straight starts. "It's a league with good players. We should be able to have a good rink.

"And I think the Caps knew it [was there], too."

....whats better is that Gainey gave up on him.
I don't see how he's dissapointed here for 2 seasons when he still hasn't finished his second season with the Rangers. Lundmark had alot longer to show something and people were saying he didn't have enough time to develop. I've always believed Hossa was the goods as far as being a solid NHLer, and he just needed some time. I think it was pretty obvious to some here that his play showed dramatic improvement over last season, when he seemed lost on the ice at times. He seems alot more comfortable for whatever reasons the past couple months, and even if the scoring wasn't there, alot of the intangibles were. With his promotion to a better line, I believe we will start to see him blossom into a real 2 way player.

If I had a dollar for every one of these types of posts.....

At this point, Hossa has recieved far more time on as a top-6 forward than Lundmark was ever afforded.

Capitals fans are whining about the officiating. The caps had two more minors then the rangers. The rangers clearly outplayed them, I really see no reason for there whining.

The Capital fans on these boards.... There's not much more I can say about them without getting a life time ban from the boards.

Hossa is the man. I've been a supporter all season. I remember in the other Rangers board I had my name as Hossa For Captain After Jagr Retires for a while. He really has the ability to turn into a very good 2-way forward.

Becoming more and more clear that this team is at its best with a physical lineup

Same lines as against Tampa Bay:

Hossa-Straka-Jagr
Avery-Nylander-Shanahan
Prucha-Cullen-Ortmeyer
Hollweg-Betts-Orr

Dupuis was scratched.

Give Dupuis a shot, with Hollweg, and Betts, that line has some great speed.

Orr just slows that line down (sadly), and let me re-iterate that i am an Orr fan, and think hes going to develop into a solid 4th liner.
That was once in the 1st. Other than that he played defensively responsible...he even had a nice shot on goal tonight after getting his 1st goal last night. Clearly he's playing with more confidence...and his hitting is improving too. He's starting to get to the point of an effective enforcer...so you don't scratch him. Right now he works as an enforcer for this team...there is no need for him to be replaced. I understand your points about Dupuis but as I said before Hall was settling into a 4th liner/healthy scratch. Dupuis will have to be that healthy scratch...no reason to break up a winning combo

He gets easily winded after relatively short shifts, its obvious to anyone who is objective.

The kid still needs work, but I see a lot of potential in him. However it does not change the fact that his foot speed SERIOUSLY hurts the 4th line. While his toughness and willingness and ability to fight are pros, the foot speed KILLS the other 2 guys on his line. In fact, if we could get Dupuis in the game on the 4th line, I would say we have one of the fastest teams in the league w/ Straka, Avery, Cullen, Orts, Hollweg, Betts, and Dupuis.

Would not be fun to play against a team with that kinda wheels.
At this point...we could use some physicality/toughness/enforcer on the 4th line. What do you mean it kills the 4th line? They played well last night and almost got a goal early...and they had 2 goals on Friday.

Seriously couldn't agree more. We've almost completed adressing our toughness issue. Just need a tough backliner now

Unfortunately I was unable to watch last night's game. Watching the highlights, it seems to me that there was a good deal of chemistry with those lines again.

However, highlights do not provide a good way to see what the effort was like. Did the Rangers come with their legs last night and play the whole 60?

Dupuis should've played for Orr..

One soft goal and a decent 4th line game doesn't give Orr a free pass...

One would guess...

that Dupuis comes in for Prucha, unless he's being used for trade bait, then it may be Hollweg until he's traded (he's a left winger, right?).
