What is interesting is that the disparity between 19th (NYR) in the league and say 11th or 4th is about 4 and 8 PPGs.

That's a measly 1 extra goal in ANY 4-8 of our 26 games and we are at the top of the league.

If they get a halfway decent stretch of games where they capitalize ONE extra time on the PP, we will be right there.

Just some food for thought.

And this after how unproductive the PP has been.


In other words: we need to and probably will acquire a goal scorer before season's end.

Our PP is so bad other teams take penalties on purpose, because they have a better chance scoring against our PP unit then our PK unit....

wait, that's actually fact....

"Our power play is so bad that the opposing teams coach thinks of it as a bath room break. brb guys"

"Our power play is so bad the announcers don't even bother to mention if we're on one."

"Our power play is so bad we can't even design a play to score on our own goal tender." Now this is if the game is way out of hand and a goal wouldn't matter anyway. This has also been tried during practice many times with limited success.

"Our power play is so bad that the Rangers coaching staff has a 24 HELP hot line, where Rangers fans from all over can call in and give advice."

Our Powerplay is so bad that we actually now only practice Penalty Killing (Perry Pearn proclaims positively "Practicing Power Play is pathetically pointless!") and hence we there only keep scoring on the 4 on 5 leading us to believe that we should let in goals on the PP - not score them - as we have forgotten which is which. Confused? So are the players it seems...

The Powerplay is so bad that a team who has the #1 PK in the league has a goal differential of -1 in special teams.

"Our power play is so bad that we may as well take the chance and pull Lundqvist and try 6 skaters to 4. After all, with or without Lundqvist the other team is scoring a goal anyway."

"Our pp is so bad, when Sundin looks at our man advantage stats he will turn to Sather and look like this - Then after that expression Sundin will look at Sathers offer, grab his coat and hat and without saying a word, Sather will get this expression before he quickly heads for the exits and fly's to Vancouver."

Our power play is so bad Hollywood is running a "Help the Rangers Power Play" marathon in order to lend a hand.

speaking of Hollywood

"The Rangers are so desperate they are thinking of bringing in Emilio Estevez to teach the staff how to exploit the 5 man V shaped Mighty Ducks attack, which Renney reiterated how well it worked for Emilio's Duck team even though it was just a movie." "It's been something I've wanted to implement for a long time now. I think tonight is the perfect opportunity. The players are really buying into the idea and have been very enthusiastic about it" says Tom.

Well after tonight's failure of a 5 on 3 and a shortie, (yeah we got one woohoo), figured this should get a bump again.

Our power play is so bad the blue seats were chanting defense when we were on the power play in the 2nd and 3rd periods. It's true, around sec 412, 411, 410, 409 they were chanting defense on the power play.

Actually.

The powerplay is so bad that the practice cones consistently score SHG's.

Our Power Play is so bad that Washington coach Bruce Boudreau thought it was a prime opportunity for HIS team to score some goals.

I kid you not.
