Look I'm not killing Lundqvist he's been brilliant. But he get's beaten when he goes down too soon. If he stays up, the deflection hits him in the chest. He went down early on Crosby earlier and get lucky.

Are they too arrogant to shoot? Do they get hard-on's from puck possession? I'm really trying to figure out why they think that they are an all star team every shift, waiting for a spectacular goal instead of getting dirty.

Wrong but okay.

And if Jagr is hurt so what? What has he done lately to 'lead' us anywhere? If he's hurt it gives the rest of the guys to drop their over reliance on passing to him. It'd be nice to see.

Dubinsky is too young. Not allowed to play with less than 15 minutes to go in the 3rd.

Yeah, he must have two broken legs and a cracked rib. That's the only way I oculd see him sitting out.

On another note, having Malik and Rosival on the same pairing is really hard to take against quick teams. They cant get out of their own way.
The way Crosby dives he should be playing for Philly.

Anyway, I'm kind of happy we lost right now because with that effort, if we stole it, tomorrow would be the same ****. Someone needs to ***** slap half the team in the face and just say don't be lazy.

A few thoughts:

Malik is a nerd. A European Tom Poti.
Power play is unbelievable. you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
It seems like you can't touch crosby without getting a penalty.


We're lucky to get a point out of the game

Jagr had 5 shots in the 2nd. No one else shot. This is why I did not want the Straka-Nylander-Jagr line re-united, they get too cute and that carries over into the PP. Rozsival had opportunities to shoot. Straka is probably physically unable to shoot from the point with the shoulder problem.

Might have thought his team could hold down a 2 goal lead and he shouldn't risk it and not be able to play tomorrow. He should know better than the rangers not to suck though.

Straka has not taken many shots since he returned. Why he continues on the point on the PP is beyond understanding. You have Pock & Mara now to play the points with Rachunek and Rozsival.

OT it is 4 v 4 why is Roszival skating away from Armstrong and not towards him to keep him wide and not a threat? The play beyond going up the Rwing boards and not up the middle intoto traffic.

The refs were inconsistent. The non call on the icing was a joke. Why were both linesmen in the neutral zone? The ref was right there and he had a brain fart too. He should have blown the whistle for the icing.

A real early game,(12:45), and at home where they play even less motivated than normal.

a captain plays through everything unless its terrible. if it was him "saving" himself tomorrow thats a bunch of bs. and if thats true, he let the entire teasm down.

I am a Renney supporter but that move puzzles me too.

A difference of opinion, yes. Wrong? Not neccesarily.

Especially since Straka just came back from a shoulder injury where he said he couldn't physically shoot.

not only is he not taking many shots, his passes are so soft they are barely reaching their targets. notice he cant make any long passes. the guy is seriously hurt. I understand hes a gamer, and his presence helps, but hes useless on the PP. Right now id use him as a 3rd or 4th liner. Seriously, hes still got wheels to carry the puck and defend, but not much else.

Hes still really raw though. I still think he shouldnt be in the NHL. hes got pros, but im not sure this cup of coffee or whatever is going to help his growth. Often times he makes the wrong plays, and often times he uses his body perfectly. I think a lot of the "kinks" in his game are stuff that should be ironed out in the minors, not stuff you learn from in the majors. certain things you can only learn in the pros, i get that, but Dubinsky still has a lot of work to get to the point where the minors dont help him at all.

Tough way to loose the game, but it was on the wall so to speak.

I mean, with a onearmed Straka, and without Shanny, Jagr, Hossa and Tyutin we are just too thin.

Roszival and Malik worked extremely hard all night and should get a ton of credit IMO, after that kind of work you can even afford a gaffe like that on the end.

With about 10 to go Pittsburgh had knocked us the reff were on 9 and gooing on 10 when we climbed back and fought us into OT.

So I am very pleased with the effort and the point. Jagr now must get back for tomorrow. Without him we are screwed big time. Everyones play will drop if we can't push the other team back regulary with atleast one line.
