This could be yet another measuring stick game, in a month full of measuring stick games.
Very true,tonight is going to be a true test of this team. I personally think they can beat the Thrashers tonight, but they are going to have to play the same style they did when they played San Jose and Ana.

Man, I tell you. Up until now, I simply thought that you wanted to simply be opposite of most opinion. Now, I really have to start to question if you watch the games at all, watch some sort of bizarro-Rangers or have any idea of what it is that you are talking about. When I see comments like that, I have to question why am I even bothering to read whatever it is that you are trying to post.

This team CANNOT play better? Replacing Rozsival & Malik with Pronger & Neids would not change anything? People who call to replace the former gruesome twosome have no clue about hockey? Dude, I have to question where do you get this crap from? The comment about the defenseman is like stating that replacing Nylander with Crosby or Sakic would not change anything. Or placing Ovechkin on the top lines would not change anything.

Let me get this straight. I have no clue about what an NHL defenseman is supposed to do, but you do? Apparently allowing opposing forwards to blow by you as if you are a tree is what they are supposed to do. Playing on the same side of the ice and abandoning your goalie is what they are supposed to do. Giving the puck away to the other team is what they are supposed to do. But wait. I know. It is not their fault. It is the fault of Henke for not standing on his head whenever they are on the ice. It is the fault of Jagr for not keeping the puck in the other team's end while those two are on the ice. Yes...now that makes sense.
