Yeah, it is what it is. Hags is impressionable. But I'm not sure if he has the creativity to play on that line.

I agree with others that Krieder should get a look on that line.

Nash and Stepan need to be separated.

Kreider - Stepan - MSL
Beaver - Brassard - Nash

?

I thought MSL was our best forward, if not out best skater, tonight.

Some questionable calls / non-calls. Hagelin doesn't belong on the first line. I'd rather try Nash at LW, or Kreider, in his place. Lundqvist played well. Bring on Friday.

They don't seem to have great chemistry and were caught flat-footed a few times. I'd like to see Klein pair up with McDonagh, Moore with Stralman and Girardi with Staal.

Offense looked mostly inept except for that quick shorthanded burst. Need Zucc back and a few practices for MSL to get accustomed to the system. We're dropping in the standings pretty quickly with these losses and we need to string together a few W's.

Oh I know, but the "he's a bum," "he's a true loser," "he sucks," "horrible hockey player" bs is just as frustrating. Nash is one of our top 3 forwards and is part of our core whether you like it or not. The hate for Nash and Lundqvist this season is disgusting.

Yep. They should try Nash with Brassard and Zucc.

Were a completely different team with Zucc back. Not too worried. MSL brings an excitement that I havent seen since Jagr. Guy just makes plays. Kind of expected a tough game from him. Played last night, flew in today to be put right into the lineup. Its only going to get better, and for all that considered he looked damn good. You put him and Zucc on the PP together, and **** will happen.

How does he get a kick, though. He's not playing bad per se, just not as good as he could be.
Kreider needs a little mean streak to his game. It gets his legs moving and keeps him engaged.

That line needs a catalyst. All 3 of them have been timid.

By a country mile.

Is it just me, or was Richards skating better while playing with MSL?

So you'd play Nash at LW on the Richards/MSL line? Because I don't think you can break up the Zuccarello/Brassard/Pouliot line. They have great chemistry.

Seemed like that to me too. Just what I was hoping for.

Time flies when you're having fun, not while watching the Rangers.

I wouldn't say he was skating better but there was way less broken plays.

I agree with you there. Its a lot easier to go after the stars than admit to the real issues with this team. Which, primarily, is lack of depth at center/LW and shoddy/inconsistent defensive zone coverage.

Richards is playing good with MSL. Maybe Kreider on that line?

Its not just about tonight. He doesn't have what it takes to win. Sather should have been cautious, but he sees glitz and headlines and can't help himself.

This isn't a team, its a collection of individuals. They don't stick up for eachother, they get pushed around, they have no urgency. 19 games left, they are one point away from being out of a playoff spot (they are not getting a wild card) and this is their response? Play 10 minutes out of 65?

Nash, to me, is the personification of what is wrong with this hockey club.

Sather is dilusional. They are not winning the Cup.

I would try that. The impact MSL had on Brad was awesome. If he can get Nash going that line would be something special.

Kreider Richards MSL
Hagelin Stepan Nash

Switch Steps with Brass if you want, but pretty please let's try this.

You know, everyone hated Torts for constantly changing up lines. Now we're begging for just one tiny switch up.

I think that first line needs to be taken apart. I don't see the chemistry they once had anymore. They are forcing a lot of plays and just don't look compatible anymore. I think MSL/Richards/Nash is worth a look.

I really would rather see Stepan - Nash broken up.
