These ****ing outlet passes are ****ing useless. Everyone is trying to do amazing outlet passes. 5 so far, none have gone through the neutral zone.
Hope you don't mind a Canucks fan chiming in.
This sounds very familiar, as it was AV's system in Vancouver. He stressed the breakout pass as one of the primary means of creating scoring chances. The Canucks have a good group of defensemen who can make the outlet passes so it wasn't really a problem but even with them you could tell it was forced sometimes. It might not be as effective a system for the Rangers though.

I see you can check a player when he doesn't have the puck and not be called for interference, now.

Richards line is history. They need someone who can skate with the puck. Kristo has skated in twice, Asham has twice as well. Richards can't skate well enough and doesn't have the size or the moves to get through the neutral zone and get his line time and space. They're making stupid in tight passes that accomplish nothing in terms of progressing the puck.
They're making fancy passes for the sake of making them and eluding the opposition--- in the neutral zone?
