Lundqvist and Jagr prevented this team from going through a full rebuild back in 2005, but it sure looks that process was only delayed so long.
Sather is never leaving this organization until he is 6 feet under. Seriously. The sooner we accept this, the sooner we can accept it could be a long time before this team is competitive for more than a fluke year.

For all the hate Pyatt is getting, who do you replace him with? Who is outplaying Taylor Pyatt?

I mean, his PPs were always garbage and the Rangers never had the puck. From an X's and O's standpoint, he was pretty mediocre.
He did what he could with this **** roster.

Outside of Callahan, no one on this team really cares as long as they get that paycheck.

This style simply cannot work without Nash, Cally and Hags out. And who knows if it will work with them healthy. The current makeup of this squad is too soft, too loose and not particularly smart or skilled. And without Cally, Nash and Hags they also have mediocre speed. They either need to change out some of the personel and go become a more imposing group that can play tighter and grind it out. This is seriously sad.

Call up one of the kids from Hartford, they can't possibly be any worse.

At this point 3 people might have to for us to seriously have a good future.

Hank, G and Av (maybe).

We could get good return even if they go UFA. If they stay we'll overpay them beyond reason, that's our thing.

So, rid them! I don't care if at one point they were our #1 defender, they scored 20+ goals in a season, trade them and do away with this ******** before we have another Club Med in our hands.

Seriously, this team has a million problems right now.

- Hank has had a bad start
- Injuries. Bad injuries.
- Stepan misses training camp
- Roster pretty average to begin with
- New coach
- Zone D -> Man-on-man

A top 6 player goes down and u replace him with a 4th liner raisimg the number of legit 4th line forwards in the lineup to 8. That's just moronic coachimg/

This is why I'm not jumping off a bridge, yet. Once Stepan gets back up to speed and once we get those three guys back I think it will be better.

Criticism of Torts aside, based on the way this team has started this year, we would've been in a much better position letting Torts do what he did at even strength and on the PP, but forcing a PP coach on him before going with this abomination.

Torts boring ass system hid a lot of flaws that are now blinding us.

Fast can't step up if you play him with fourth liners. Is it really that hard to give him PP time? Geez.

Miller should be centering the third line.

It's not having kids up, it's how you use them.

Pyatt and Fast have been two of our best forwards so far.... not saying much. But you're not going to win many games if those two are the most noticeable..... Ugh.

What is wrong with Henrik? I just don't get it....

Had to go to an Uncles surprise B-day party tonight, doesnt look like I missed a whole lot. Not even going to bother turning this one on as it'll just put me in a sour mood for the night.

Unless of course you're referring to the 0/zero/nil/null games we've played against them this season.

I don't give a **** we're missing half our top 6, losing 4-0 to one of the worst ****ing teams in the league is NEVER acceptable. Once in a blue moon.

I actually didn't say that. But you seem to want to twist words around to suit whatever it is you're trying to say.

For some reason, those 2 games against the Pens matter, but not 6-7 years of stellar play from our world-class goalie? Strange.
