While any team would miss an almost point per game player, NY upgraded with their other signings, and the pp will get on track soon

Captain Hook would take more penalties then score on the PP.

Yeah, a little early to be flipping out when we're undefeated 2 games into the season. Let's see where we are 10 games in.

Rucinsky was a good player but he wasn't the key to our PP. STL can take him, we have many players that can do just fine on the PP.

Just give it time!

You know who I miss on the PP

Ozo

There I said it

Get Jagr and Shanny off the freakin points and on the circles.

Try Cullen on the Point if you must....but watch

Ozo will come back and light that **** up and we'll be biting our nails for the rest of the season

There's no one on the left side I'd take him over at this point.

Not Shanahan, not Straka and I personally think Dawes will chip in some points (he could've had a few already).

So now I don't really think the Rangers "miss" him.

I think it's a nonpoint. The top two lines wings will score more than he probably would and he's not getting those kinds of points on the third line.

just because rucinsky scored a ppg for st louis doesn't mean anything...rucinsky wouldn't even be on the 1st pp unit so he would have zero impact on it.

The PP strategy is the problem, not the personnel.

No...

the points haven't been the problem. And I believe the Rangers' PP was at its best when Rucinsky was injured last season (20 or 30 games, which is a representative sample).

I'm a Colts fan as well as a Ranger fan... and I see the same type of panic from both fanbases.. I guess having a perfect record makes people panic... Rucinsky isn't good enough to be on the first PP unit for this team, let alone probably 3/4 of the league... He's more of a complementary player than anything else..

The PP was quite poor last year and has been non-existant through the preseason. I think it's fair to question what might be wrong with that aspect of the game and how it could be fixed.

And I agree with that as well. No mobility in the PP.

I disagree. He vanishes the second half of every year and never does anything in the playoffs. Good players produce all year and at least show up in the playoffs.
