It's just weird how mediocre this team can play.

I truly do not understand, once again. Been there before, many times.

I agree they are a decent team. Tonight was not really about how great the Panthers were, though.

It's time to up the talent level on this team. If you are down by a goal with less than five minutes left and Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust are given a shift your team does not have enough talent up front. The fact that Torts the genius put Richards on with those two 4th liners in the third is beyond belief. Also, why doesn't this coach understand the importance of a hard point shot. Six forwards to end the game with no one who can shoot from the point is ********. Also, EC is garbage, Deveaux needs to be sent back to where he belongs, the AHL and the skill must be upgraded with Zucc and Hagelin. Great game by Hank and McD.

My exact thoughts. Tortorella is clueless.

Dubinsky / Boyle should NEVER hit the ice when a goal has to be scored.

Sadly, I'd say Prust too, but he has 2x the number of goals of Boyle / Dubinsky, which isn't saying much.

I must have blinked when this happened, but how the hell did Versteeg end up on a small market team like the Panthers?

1. How does Sullivan have a job still ?
2. How about giving some players with some speed and or skill a chance ie... MZA , HAGELLIN , even Ryan Borque . Heck even maybe give Christian Thomas a 10 game look . We need some players who think shoot and or can make a play behind dump and kick along the boards .
Or let's make a trade for either a D Man that can somewhat control te play by beating a man or two and rush the puck or anothe wing that is a shoot first player that can play with Brad

He's no Lundqvist, but Theodore's been putting together a nice come-back season here in Florida.

Well, the Panthers just beat them 3-2...

... although that was the game before Golden Boy graced the league with his return.

If NYR wants to tempt fate, and put up a big bluff regarding the signing of players who did great things for other teams, yes, by all means sign Semin.

He is one guy that Sather should simply remove from the rolodex. Don't sabotage the team by hiring that mercenary. I cannot stand Semin. Would hate looking at him in a Rangers sweater. He would suck.

agree. when your two best offensive players are consistently playing behind the goal line and not out front, there is something wrong with the game plan

Thomas can't be called up--once he's returned to his Junior team, he has to stay the season with them.

A trade would be too expensive right now and to get a player that would upgrade the skill level significantly would require giving up too many assets. But, I do agree it's time to either Zuccarello and/or Hagelin a chance. More speed and skill won't hurt.

i'm losing alot of faith in this coach. this powerplay is an absolute joke and shows no signs of improvement. they've had 3 days between their last three games, to practice and develop chemistry.
they look like they came off a 7 game losing streak!

2 games of aimless skating, overpassing, puck whacking. i don't know who's playing with who anymore on this team, there's a different line on the ice every time I blink.

Sullivan could be replaced with a mannequin from macy's and you wouldn't know the difference.

These turkeys should be served a nice bag skate for thanksgiving . OR .... the big ego Tortskey should be deep fired !!!! Gobble Gobble back to the booth with you . 7 game win streak a lot of smoke and mirrors . Tortkey gobbler playing BR with Feds ( too old too slow too little skill and Prust ( good character smart player too little skill ) in basically the whole 3rd when behind a goal is a crime
