Dubi's Strong Leadership Quote

These are big words from Dubi, and I give him high marks for saying them. These words put SO much confidence into his team for sure...

Quote:
“Obviously it’s a tough loss,” Brandon Dubinsky said of the Rangers’ blown three-goal lead in a 4-3 double overtime loss in Wednesday’s Game 4. “But there’s no time to go back, not time to dwell on it. Obviously, it’s a tough one. But we’re a resilient team and we have been all year. We’ve just got to break it up into smaller pieces. We’ll focus on tomorrow’s practice and then the first period in Washington. It’s a tough loss but we’ve got to make sure we’re confident. I think we’re confident in here. I know what we’re capable of. It’s a matter of executing. I don’t think the group has lost confidence. In fact, I know we haven’t. It’s a resilient group…Whatever it takes, we’ve got to do it. The team has shown when it’s back is up against the wall that if we want to accomplish something, we’re able to do it. I know we’re a good enough hockey team to beat these guys.”

For a player that is not a captain, that lost his linemate (Cally) to say those words, is huge and now he and the rest of the rangers need to follow through with them.

we are all big time down after giving away the last game but if they can win Saturday we come home and you just never know

regardless Dubi had a great year and really took a big step in his career. Callahan got hurt twice or he would of had fantastic numbers.

I still give Cally the C but Dubi an Staal get the A's

Call me cynical, but I can't help thinking of Gertrude at this point. That much repetition in that short a speech reeks strongly of protesting too much, methinks.

Fortunately only Hank needs to be "confident" and "resilient" for the team to at least be in the game.

I always thought Dubi was a contender for the "C'. This just solidifies it.

Contender yes but I think it's Cally is the next captain, hands down.

It's one thing to talk, it's another thing to lead on the ice.

Let's not forget that Dubinsky basically handed Washington a free goal when he failed to cover Johannson for their second score within a minute and put that game into panic mode.

I like him, but he's basically a kid also. Mistakes happen, but his mistake proved to me that he's got plenty to learn about winning...which shouldn't be a surprise.

I like that he is putting focus on himself.

Ballsy. Which we knew about him, but this is the next step. Good for him.

Now it's put up or shut up. Go out there and have the game of your life kid.

I guess that 3rd period is was the missing piece....

Leadership in practice and leadership on the ice I guess are very different things.

Re: "Yeah but we let up 3 in the 3rd, still alot to learn."

Guy's, your all alot smarter then that. Momentum in the playoffs is always the 6th man on the ice. We had it in the 2nd and Washington had it in the 3rd with assists from the ref who cork blocked Dubi along the boards.

Plus the team as a whole abandond "our" game for a few minutes in that 3rd period and the Caps made us pay. When we were running Neuvirth and forchecking deep we were killing them. The team as a whole forgot that plan in the 3rd up 3-0.

I'd hardly lay the blame on Dubi's shoulders alone.

Washington is not a team that closes series well. Since fatty has been behind the bench he has yet to NOT coach his way to a 7 game series. We know the Rangers aren't giving up so that's some food for thought. Pun intended

I agree, but I like what Dubi said because it is all true.

Great to hear but sorry Dubi, Callahan is getting the "C" once Drury is gone.

Sorry Einstein, but that ref collision actually happened in OT.

And that momentum you speak of was created because our players (Yes, Dubinsky included) didn't do their jobs very well. Goals should not be that easy in the playoffs. It's the mark of players that aren't ready to win.

Glad to see you show up on the NYR boards at playoff time to run your mouth and put everybody down when we're down in the series 3-1.

Where were you the rest of the season.

Just go back to the puckdaddy boards and facebook comments with your jibberish if all you can do is come here to post when the chips are down and contribute back handed compliments and childish reply's.

Alright, alright, enough, Dubi and Cally are the future leaders, point taken again and again and again.

Its nice to hear, but down 3-1 the whole world knows what needs to be done for you to win, just shut up and win. Talking about what you have to do is so a month ago when you barely got into the playoffs.

Amazing but it takes ONE shift to change the momentum of a game... perhaps a series...

Maybe I missed it, but I don't remember this huge surge in momentum that resulted in the Caps getting back into the game. I remember 1 really ugly giveaway and 1 pathetic job of picking up your man in the d-zone.

The McDonagh giveaway I'm inclinded to cut a little more slack because the game was 3-1 and we should have still been in control. But to come back out on I believe the very next shift and leave Johansson alone in front of the net is inexuseable. Dubinsky needs to understand the situation better in that circumstance.

Again, I like Dubinsky and think he's a good leader but I'm not about to get carried away with it.

Third period and on Caps applied more pressure in our end than we did in theirs. We still got some nice chances but they had more. Basically a miscue in the end won the game...even so Girardi and Staal both heading towards 40 minutes of ice time looked exhausted at the end.

An analysis of this series to the one against the Caps in '09 so far--less wins but we've been more competitive. Ovechkin hasn't been nearly as huge a force. Rangers have not been badly outshot or stuck in their own end for shift after shift. Henrik pretty much stole two games of that series last time around. Talent gap has closed a bit and we're younger and we should get better over the next season or two.

we forgot to forecheck in the 3rd. Plain and simple.

This allowed their very dangerous D-men to jump with abandon.

yeah, if he can back it up with a hat trick a la Messier, then my eyebrow will raise.
