I think you're right Apple. I could see MZA being a quarterback and leader. Good at keeping the puck in and better speed than Richey if the puck got by him. I hope they experiment

Great stuff! I love that we have a team now, not just a group of individuals.

Maybe they should actually try having multiple strategies at their disposal to be adaptable to the ever-changing landscape that is the fastest ( team) sport in earth, you know, like the team that beat them lol. Anytime you use a rigid " game plan" you get in trouble. Anyone remember Torts? Actually anyone remember Colin Campbell lol? Well there was this enigmatic superstar you might recall named Pavel Bure which unless your under the age of 15 you undoubtably do. When the Russian Rocket was on he was virtually unstoppable and when he was off, well he was probably wearing a Rangers jersey. Anyway one year he was tearing up the league like nobody's business so coach Campbell had the brilliant idea he would double team him on every shift. Well he wound up scoring anyway. The Rangers lost the game and when captain Leech was asked by the press his assessment of his coaches strategy somehow he kept a straight face and replied "I thought it went very well". Point is do what works. Play your game, adapt to your opponent but do not change your game because of your opponent. Like Grandmaster Mats Zuccarello uhh I mean Bruce Lee said amongst his many great quotes "No style is greater than the individual" and "Using no way as way. Having no limitations as limitations"

90% of the time he's slow as shit, bringing down his line mates, being the weak link at center and in defense but then other 10% he gets a huge clutch goal and we win. I think we all know an NHL goalie stops a sharp angle shot from that distance but nice release and whether his goals are fortuitous or lucky doesn't matter. They are clutch and they count. Then the confidence boost made his play stellar for the rest of the game. The mind creates the landscape and I want winners on my team that can create success at opportune moments so this creates a real conundrum. Do we keep this guy who costs so much and isn't great but can deliver at the right time or do we buy him out. IDK but if he keeps doing this he's gonna make it a hard decision for Slats and I'm all for it.

Credit due- he brought this team from the country club era to respectability but short shelf life. Arrogance, ego, you hit the nail on the head Tom IMO

I'm gonna miss Sunday so let me know which one, if Ricky boy or Nashty the Incredible Hulk shows up

He doesn't play with enough emotion, that's why I keep saying get him mad. Hockey's a tough game and it's easy for them to coast. If he can bring it every night the guys got the strength size and skill to be a 50 goal scorer. His underachieving drives me nuts too. I was just saying. And his willingness to set up in front, even if the coach said so is a step in a good direction. Get Nash pissed and good things are gonna happen.

Yeah he was funny alright. I will give Philly credit on playing well in their own end where the entire game was played lol keeping us to the outside cause we could have beat then 8-1 with that turkey in goal. When we got the double minor I knew it was lights out. But Hank was solid ( not) though he did come up huge in the 1st period and instead of being down 2-0 Zucc scores in the other end.

Actually I do care and this is my little secret when assessing players, situations etc which is how I know things about the team, players etc. Before the press. Body language, posturing, subconscious reactions etc. I see this and know Torts lost his command very early last season and I know Zucc will be a great player.dispute his size so this year he proves it and shuts up even his most staunch critic. And this is why I want to see him wear the C next season. Not that McD is not an " alpha male" himself and I would not be disappointed if he is chosen but Zucc is the better choice IMHO - I haven't seen this much guile in a hockey player for a good while and natural leadership showed even last season when he was new. You know I always love your assessments Name and thank you for pointing this out. Only thing I would rebutt that you've been saying is I thought Nash had a good game and brought something I didn't see in last years playoffs. He was in front of the net and a distraction on both PP goals.

@Josh-CK Damn McD is smooth. He makes it look so easy. Richey looked slow to me 1st two periods but he really got the job done on BOTH those power play goals and you could see the difference in his game after his goal. Instant confidence! Right after I requested an Annoying Joe Munn lol. If he makes a difference this 2nd season and this team goes deep buying him out starts to become a tough decision. I hope he makes it really tough

@Wallace1 Am I premature by saying Jan Erixon?
that was some dump and crunch game the flyers pulled in McD's corner alright. He had time to flirt with the blonde in the front row before dishing the puck. way to get it done Philadelphia Farters Damn they laid a big fat one in center ice., We were all over them. Even though a lot of perimeter shots I liked that they were shooting on Emery every chance they got. You knew he would buckle as he was shaky. Yeah, my dead grandma could have been in goal for us tonight and we still would have won. Speaking of which I have a beef with whoever chose "the save of the game". that lame partial breakaway from the far angle? Save of the game? WTF? What about that save in the first after Henry let in that deflected folly floater - you know, the one at point blank from the top of the crease (forgot who shot it) - could have been 2-0 but instead Henry came up big and then Zucc tied it up. Jeez. Other than that one or 2 other good saves very little work, big rebounds, on his knees a lot, an over the shoulder (glove side of course) zinger that catches iron. good we didn't need him tonight. We will need him to be sharper for a long playoff run though. Other than that no real negatives. MSL looked good and got 2 helpers. I think Nash led the team in shots and distracted the goalie by setting up in front on the tie breaker (or maybe I'm thinking about their 3rd goal). ENTER THE DRAGON lol MZA FTW Anyway that was a Broadway slaughter!.If I was a Farter - uhh Flyer fan I'd be pisssssd off at that effort, but I'm a Ranger's Fan and happy as a kid on christmas LGR!!!
@DPSnotty @Betweentheworlds@Bleed_the_freak They're the Philadelphia Farters but we poop-a-lot. McD had time for a beer or 2 on those dump ins before he had to make a play. They were awful. We weren't finishing till the 3rd but we were relentless. That's the way to play hockey #becauseitstheplayoffs.

@tygalpin fuck that - Rangers in 4 #becauseitstheplayoffs
@TomDundie They can't even execute the dump and crunch properly. McD retrieved puck in corner, had time for a beer, then passed or skated it out himself. What a joke. Hank was shaky but had the save of the game in the 1st period - could have been 2-0 but instead Zucc scored in the other end. 14 saves. wow, and one ringer on his knees over his glove side shoulder, of course. We were all over them, they didn't know whether to shit or go blind. Richey slow in 2 periods, on fire in 3rd. Good game NYR!
@Bleed_the_freak They suck - they can't even execute a dump and crunch game. How did they make the playoofs
@Not Callaqvist @AnnoyingJoeIt's bleeding blue #becauseitstheplayoffs

Just get him angry. They wouldn't like him when he's angry
Someone please bring out Munn, Richey is like dead man skating
@NYR44 @BetweentheworldsWould someone then wake MSL and Nash up and tell them the playoffs are on?
@Say my Name Nash and Livefyre for draft picks
@omnishambles @Say my NameCan someone please piss Nash off?
The ice is tilted. Emery sucks. What seems to be the problem?
Richey's fucking slow!
Enter the dragon!

And a top center sans Richey
Not a thing of beauty but we seemed to wake up mid way
If anyone cares Yanks just pulled a triple play
Shoot shoot shoot. Hit, skate and shoot some more. Love the simple strategy
He's too small. He'll disappear in the playoffs lmfao
