Based on what? the san jose thing was god awful and he played vs calgary because henrik was "sore".
Nothing has gone right since the SJ game. The Rangers up 2-0 early in the first.Valiquette gets beat by that sharp shooter Brad Staubitz and everything has fallen apart. 8 out of 10 people on this forum could have stopped that puck.
I have very little, if any confidence in this team - even on home ice.
And that is not good.
They get off to a good start and actually get some secondary scoring... Leading 3-2 going into third (giving us hope that this team can actually put it together if they work at it) but Vally gives up a soft-serve and the wheels fall off. 3 unanswered goals including one from Tyutin on a 3 on O - just to rub it in our faces a little bit.
as long as we have gaborik and lundqvist in net we will have a chance to win. in order for us to regain the confidence guys like callahan, avery, anisimov need to step up and start putting some pucks in the net. In my opinion, tortorella has to pull the reins back a little bit on staal, and let gilroy play. let gilroy play the way he did in preseason and he would become more of an offensive threat again. staal isnt that offensive, we need his defensive game back. everyone knows hes been shaky. rozy just sucks so that will always be a downfall. mdz has been a very nice surprise.
o and btw, i wouldnt mind a season where we miss the playoffs. yes the rangers do have a good farm system, but it wouldnt hurt to let some of our better prospects get another year under their belt. also we would get a higher draft pick which i would not mind at all for next season.
