He did suck tonight. People write that stuff because there are genuinely people who think he sucks as a goaltender, he has no business in the NHL, and that Talbot should be this teams starter and the starter for team Canada.

Because when Lundqvist has one bad night, his entire ability as a goaltender is in question. Lundqvist having a statistically average year? TRASH. His first year out of eight? Let's crucify him for being average one year.

****. How many players deserve to be crucified on this team than for every average / below average year they've had?

You want to say he had a bad night. Fine. Don't say the guy is washed up and shouldn't be this teams starter after he just played at a level Talbot never will see.

Of course, prior to the deadline Cally, Stralman and one of the fourth liners all need to be traded.
Preach! Great post

I thought the Rangers had more than enough chances to win, even in the last 40.

Rask made some great saves, the Rangers had some terrible breakdowns, and most of those breakdowns wound up in their net.

It's not like the Bruins pinned them in their own zone for 40 min.

The difference was the Bruins are a better, more experienced, tougher, more physical, and mentally tougher team. And no Hank wasn't great, but how can anyone act like that was the only reason.

When a team that just went to the Finals comes out like dog ****, you have to put the nail in the coffin during the 1st period, or it's over.

Who cares? He sucked tonight.

Bringing up Lundqvist's glorified past after a horror show like tonight is like a 45-year-old guy in a jail cell bragging about a girl he hooked up with 30 years ago.

That's what I have a problem with. Two so-so games (and he wasn't that bad in his first game back, quite frankly, he could have let up more) doesn't make him a trash goaltender when he was a rock for his team all of January/February and was a rock for his nation at the highest level of international play.

Put things in perspective.
Well said and obviously 100% spot on. I'm with you all the way here. It gets very tiring.

Nobody gives a **** about his gold. We're Rangers fans not Sweden fans.

The guy should be trashed he is the reason we lost. We switch goalies and the score switches.

What team are you watching this season?
Sports is a performance based business. As said by everyone on here. And it's all "what have you done for me lately." What did Lundqvist do in January/February again?

You thought it would be better to go back even further to make him look worse. Which you succeeded at.

And secondly, no one will deny that Lundqvist is having an average year as a starter. He certainly isn't have a bad year as one. People think he is having a bad year because they're spoiled by him.

Ugh, I loathe the Bruins.

This year's NYR team is going nowhere assuming they even make the playoffs. Time to move Callahan and hopefully others to teams that are actual contenders. I'm fine with making the team worse for the rest of this season in the hopes that they are improved 2-3 years down the line when we might actually be able to go deep in the playoffs again.

Shhh, you're getting in the way of the pointless worrying and unrealistic hopes. Fire the entire staff! Trade everyone! Sign Callahan's family for 5 generations!

Thank goodness. Maybe, this squashes any thought of being contender and buying during the deadline. Hopefully this is also the tipping point in the whole Callahan saga.

He wasnt. They played timid after the 1st period.

I think people are just frustrated that he hasnt been stealing games like he used too.

Boston always outplays them. Yet he's always been there to keep them behind.

I think this team is just flat out scared of Boston. Reminds me of the Rangers when they played the Isles in the 1980s

I'm not saying we suck...

But we really need to limit our expectations for this team as constructed at the present time.

What can we really do in the playoffs? Anyhting can happen? I'm not buying it.

There is no way we could beat the broons or the pens in a 7 game series and we will struggle mightily with philly and/or the craps.

Very likely we do NOT get past the first round, assuming we make the playoffs.

Size and physical play lacking and those 2 attributes become all the more important in playoff hockey.

I know Clowe didn't work out becaus eof the concussion issues and the contract he wanted, but a healthy Clowe is exactly the type of players we need.

Carcillo helps a little, but he's not BIG enough.

I agree it has been an average, not bad year. But when you are paid to be the best goalie in the world, expectations are far above average.

I know he is capable of picking it up and I hope he does.

Read every other post I've done in this thread. As well as the one directed to you.

Dude is not a trash goaltender. He is still an elite goaltender. He proved it in the NHL when the Rangers had their best run of the season and had someone like you questioning just how good this team is, and he proved it in the Olympics. One so-so game and one BAD game doesn't negate how he has arguably been the best Rangers played in the 2014 calendar year (January 1st forward).

More like the 45 year old man in the jail cell bragging about the slew of supermodels he hooked up with for the past 30 years.

Don't undersell those achievements.

Let me tell you exactly what would fix this NY Rangers team

Signing Ryan Callahan to a 7 year, $48M deal

I make him look worse???????????? Yes. It's my fault he's been average/inconsistent this season.

Henrik has never been criticized like he has this season. Never. Maybe one or two games a season. Maybe some playoff games.

You cant fault people for being pissed that hes not playing as well as he should.

He's not a little kid who accidentally dropped an ice cream cone on the sidewalk. This season, he's the drunk ice cream truck driver. Nobody knows what the hell to expect.

You mean the past two months? That's his glorified past? People aren't even using his "past" achievements, they're talking about how he has literally played the past couple of months. Hell, the past couple of weeks. He's been great. You're using the two most recent games to trash the man.

People on here have no conception of time.
