If the Rangers were gonna do that I'd want Alain Vigneault from Vancouver

As long as we also have who is the most arrogant. (Not saying you are here).

After every loss people love to shout at other people on here from their ivory towers.

So we're not "real fans" if we don't say the team played great after not scoring a single goal in over 60 minutes and not getting a shot on net in 2 consecutive powerplay chances?

Forget AV. I want Mike Babcock. His contract is up in a year anyways.

The only two guys(who play in the top six) who I am not sure about in that system are Hagelin(who is developing) and Cally(who has some terrible offensive habits). But even those two guys could probably be coached to develop that game.

Then you have all the turn over with guys like JT Miller, Christian Thomas, Faste etc who would be FAR better in a puck possession system than a grinding one.

So, all you really have are your bottom six players who don't really make or break a puck possession system anyways. Not to mention, with the turnover with the younger players, our bottom six is going to be MUCH different in the next couple of years. So essentially our 4th line can't play in that system. Brian Boyle can't play in that system. You can't replace Boyle?
Hagelin is a very good puck possession player and I think he'd be the perfect 3rd liner.

Aside from that, I don't really see players who can be relentless on the forecheck.

We could have won with Weight, Amonte, or Mike Gartner. Stupid trades all around.

This team has no structure in the defensive zone, no effective breakout plan, no transition, no utilization of the speed of the players who can fly, an easy to shut down offense that's generated from behind the net resulting in shots into a goalie who is waiting for a shot while pinned to a post. There are few rebounds because our forwards are in back of the net, not in front of it. I'm not even going to start on the PP or go on about this, because there's no point.
Clearly you are a horrible fan. In your 40 years as a fan you should know only true fans make excuses for the team no matter what and stay positive even when the going gets tough. Anything can happen.

lol.

Kreider's PPG in AHL is less than that of Luke Adam's and Phil Varone. Not to mention being less productive than Ranger prospects Marek Hrivik and JT Miller.

Kreider is the problem, he is not a good hockey player. Another brawns over brain draft pick.

I agree to a point I'm an avid Canucks fan and hang around there boards so I mean I know he doesn't seem to adjust properly mid game but he could certainly help the offense that the rangers have.

Which is why I am saying they need to switch to a puck possession system. You don't have to live and die on the forecheck in that system.

From what I've gathered from Canucks fans, he is more or less another Torts.

Do not want. Especially with Babcock right there. I'd take another mans life for Babs. Possibly yours!

You really need a dominant physical specimen of a center that can play a 200 ft game or an insanely skilled #1C that can match up against top lines and still maintain puck possession hockey. Rangers have neither of those and those two are key to opening up puck possession hockey.

You're not alone Torts is of the same mold as Keenan. They would rather lose with their systems than humble themselves for a different approach. This guy over coaches. Every player is reduced to playing the same way. Zero creative process. Purely a motivator, no strategy whatsoever.

I'd have to say the blame has to be 50/50 on this one. Looks like Kreider is playing mind games with himself, and the coaching staff isn't using him properly. Just a poor situation all around.

Next year he really needs to spend the whole season in one place and get his act together, whether it's the AHL or NHL.

Difference is that the Cubs fans know they're pathetic and rightfully have a woe-is-me attitude. Eagles fans are just nasty (a Philadelphia thing), though their team has been legit contenders many times. Rangers fans have an inexplicable arrogance for a team with one championship in 73 years.
