I think there is a lot to the fact that Kreider felt compelled to ask his bench if he should go with Subban...IN THE MIDDLE OF SQUARING OFF!  No matter how you slice it, it doesn't look good.  This was in the heat of the moment!  If AV has them acquiescing to some sort of team "policy" so much that even when emotions are sky high that it factors in...wow, just wow.  I understand "bigger picture" strategies and all, but for it to be so engrained, or if you are so "afraid" of the coaches reaction that it comes into play even then, that is troubling.

If it is not that but a reflection of Kreider's inability to act on his own out of indecisiveness, or insecurity...and needing his teammates, or coaches "permission" then it is wow again, for an entirely different reason.  

That moment disturbed me to no end.  Kreider should have gone straight at Subban, no questions.  That was a legitimate hockey beef going on there and that response would have been the normal response for ANY hockey player we have held up as a "great" (or even a "good").  

I have no way of knowing, but if that is on AV....that is serious trouble, and the Rangers have gone from one extreme in Torts to the other extreme in AV, with NEITHER being good.  Goons are gone, sure...but you can't have a "man's reaction" be the sole province of one player on the team (Glass).  The Ranger's players are soft enough as it is.  If you have a guy that wants to fight....let him fight.  If it is on Kreider...fuck....the kid has to grow a sack and not ask for permission to be a 6'3" 225b animal...just be it.

That fucking sucked.  I HATE the fucking Habs!   They played much better tonight, but Slats still has to shake up this team.  We just have too many players with hands of stone - and not in the good way.

Have their really been that many injuries from icing to merit this rule?

I'd send Kreider in to blow up Price.  Keep Glass on the line.  Kill 'em all.

So again, why is Kreider asking for permission from the bench to fight?  Is that on Kredier or AV?  Either way it doesn't bode well.

@AnnoyingJoe @Say my Name Maybe.  But he never bunted against Schilling either.  And he never threw at the Sox, even when they started getting the upper hand.  And what high road?  I think brush backs are a part of baseball.  I loved the way Pedro and Johnson, and Clemens pitched.    I think Torre was overrated. I could have rolled out that lineup everyday and won.  They had an amazing team.

@JustinRP37 @Say my Name yep...back to Yaz, Fisk, Dewey.  No worries, I don't hate the Yanks at all - just most of their fans, but most fans suck - Massholes included.  I actually like the Yankees.

Rangers are answering back, but the Canadiens are actually playing with more grit, more borderline physicality.  The Rangers must do more of that.  They play gentleman's hockey.  In doing that they are more apt to be thrown off their game when a talented team plays with an edge - forever reacting.  If there is one shortcoming in AV I think it is his 100% commitment to playing gentlemen hockey.  Equivalent to Joe Torre NEVER brushing back Oritz, or Manny despite all their damage and despite that the Sox constantly brushed back Jeter and Williams, etc...  As a Sox fan I loved it, as a baseball fan I thought Torre was a joke bc of it.  AV can't make the same mistake.

The NHL debates about it being in almost as much as my wife did on our honeymoon.  In fairness....the camera crew made me nervous, and I had eaten a bad avocado earlier.

@KevinMccarthy can't see the entire puck clearly.  It IS a goal, but not indisputable.  This would be a travesty if it is a goal.
