I'm not one for retribution, but I'm certainly hoping someone lights Burrows up the next time we see him.
I tend to agree. I actually thought McD let up and let his guard down a little because the clock was winding down - his mistake, you have to play to the whistle/horn.

And I do think Burrows has a Carcillo knee with his name on it.

I mean, I think the reward would be a goal. Those things are kinda hard to come by for anyone in a blue sweater.

I'm not sure if I agree with it, but I get the idea. We're going to lose if we sit back, and we're probably going to lose if we open up the rushing. Might as well go with the one that has a higher chance of a Rangers goal.

But he's playing like crap so there's really no goal to get. There's a fine line when it comes to joining the rush and if you're not effective, don't do it. Obviously there's enough on his plate in the defensive zone, him getting caught out of position isn't doing the Rangers any favors.

I think it's time for AV to sit McDonagh down in favor of Moore tonight. I'm sure Ryan is sitting there telling AV 'it's OK coach, I'm good to go'...but he's not good to go. He's hurting the team - unable to take the body, unable to accelerate, getting beaten repeatedly one on one, etc. McDonagh has become a liability out there.

Plus, let him get a head start on rehabilitating whatever injury he has, or going in for surgery if necessary. The sooner he's back to health next season, the better.

I;ve been saying this since the beginning of the ****ing series.. McD needs to put his pride aside and realize that he is doing no good on the ice, and is becoming a major liability. Moore isn't great, but he's the best we got right now.

At some point, it comes down to the coach. Why should McD be leaned on to make coaching decisions?

If his injury is holding him back, AV can/should easily put Staal with Girardi, and slide McD down to the third with Klein. He'll be leaned on less then, and he'll still have a very steady partner to have his back.

I still think regardless what defense pairing you play him on, Moore is a better option than this version of McDonagh.

I don't necessarily disagree, I just think its on the coach to make these decisions. Most players at this level will say they can play if they can put on their gear and move around out there. They're proud and they want to compete.
