Every time people scream for Tortorella to be fired, they never name a coach to replace him...
Its really easy to just say fire him, its another thing to hire not just a better coach, but the right one.
I want him to stay. I think this year is a fluke. With training camp, and a full season to develop the likes of Kreider and Miller, I like our chances next season...(im not giving up on this year) For the love of God even the Islanders made the playoffs. If that doesnt tell you this strike shortened year is a fluke I dont know what does,
1 year, 3 months ago on Torts Gone If Rangers Eliminated By Bruins?
What a bunch of cry babies!!!
We got outplayed, period!!! Out hit for the 1st time in the series, and couldnt win a faceoff all game.
Nash is having a bad series, but he is hardly Arod!!! Its his 1st season in NY, which I think under the circumstances, he had a pretty good year!! As far as the playoffs, its been 5 games. He has the winning assist in game 3 and almost won game 2, but hit the post.
Only than a Tap in PP goal by Ovechkin, he hasnt really done anything this series. Would you all want to cut/bench him?
Win one tomorrow, and its a 1 game series.
Man up, and Lets Go Rangers!!!
1 year, 3 months ago on Capitals 2, Rangers 1, OT
This is the biggest game of the year...Its the game in hand that we have over the Jets and Icelanders...Plus, tomorrow the JEts and Icelanders play each other...No way am I starting Biron tonight, or the rest of the year...unless we clinch a spot with a game left..
1 year, 4 months ago on Lundqvist Back in vs. Sabres
I love Cally pushing him away and Jawing with cooke...Great to see Clowe come over as well. !00% agree that a week ago this team would have shit their pants if cooke came near them...

For all of you who want to fire the head coach, I ask, Who are you replacing him with? The only name evr mentioned is Ruff. Who I damn sure dont want coaching the Rangers.
So if your of the opinion that the Torts should be fired, I would like to hear who you are replacing him with..Thank You.

@slapshot13j @queensbee @gravey94
You are kidding if you think we are as deep as boston, LA, or Chicago. We also turned over half of our team, those teams didnt.

@slapshot13j @gravey94 @GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG
So your answer is to trade or cut boyle, gabby, richards, and girardi? or fire the coach?
Who are you replacing them with? What value do you get back by trading players in a down year? Last time I checked they were still holding a playoff spot. Get in with a hot goalie and you never know what happens...
Im sure if you were an LA Kings fans last year you would have killed them and wanted everyone traded...
@gravey94 @slapshot13j @GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG
How does our organization suck? We have a ton of young talent, one of the best goalies in the league, spend near the top of the cap to try and better the team, and were 2 wins from going to the Cup a year ago!!!
They are inconsistent right now, but are still in the 8th seed with games in hand.
Do yourself and everyone else a favor and stop watching rangers games, and focus your attention on the mets and jets
@KevinDeLury @Fleisch it's not like it matters the way Torts switches lines every other shift...
1 year, 5 months ago on Halpern Placed on Waivers
I hate that they mention as a Key Fact, is that Richards returned to the game... What if he broke his neck? Would the suspension have been longer? The only thing bothers me more than that is when a player gets called for tripping, and the player he trips gets called for diving.. Awful!!!
1 year, 5 months ago on Kaleta Suspended Five Games for Hit on Richards
@AnnoyingJoe Agree,They are a shadow of themselves.. But is it:
Or a combo of:
-many new faces
-no camp to gel and get in shape to play After last year is his system to tough to play year after year without falling off, especially without camp
1 year, 6 months ago on Jets 4, Rangers 3
@AnnoyingJoe Its hard to compare a lockout season to last season...I think everything is out the window in a 48 games season wehere every team thinks they have a chance at making the playoffs...
@KevinDeLury @Fleisch I hate you!!
1 year, 6 months ago on Nash Will Not Join Team in Montreal
-I dont mind Kreider being sent down...he needs to be more physical, to often skates around without engaging.
-If Kreider loses confidence that quickly then he is not mentally strong enough to be in the NHL....
-Our great captain, Ryan Callahan was brought up and sent down a few times, and it didnt seem to effect him in the long run...
-Also thought Boyle was one of the best players on the ice last night...cant cut everyone, and he provide depth, which every team needs.
Go get yourself a drink slapshot13j..things will be alright.
1 year, 6 months ago on Chris Kreider Sent to Whale, JT Miller Staying?
Was a great effort, lots of chances...easily dubi's best game in a long time...
However, when you run into a hot goalie, you need your PP to come through...
0-5 last night... And can Torts explain why Boyle is no longer parking his big ass in front of the net on the PP!!!

Damn you auto correct!!!
2 years, 5 months ago on Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award Voting Open | March
Girardi, calmly, Prust are obvious....I like Hagelin...
How many games in a row have the Rangers had a Too many men on the ice penalty.... They need to get that fixed...Love our PK, but no excuse for that this late in the season...
Was looking at Richards career stats..going into tonight he is about 100 shots short of his usual avg....nice to see him shoot it tonight!!!
2 years, 5 months ago on Rangers 4, Islanders 3, OT | March
Is this all about being a young team folding under the pressure of being 1st overall or just a bad streak of games? 1st time all season they have lost 3 in a row.... Its just happening at the worst time and of course every team behind them is paying good hockey and winning....
Lets not panic, we are still in 1st and we have a ton of games coming up at home..
Cut down on a few turnovers, get something from the PP and we will be ok...
2 years, 5 months ago on We Feel You Callahan | March
@ForEachNYR @ATCRyan EC and WW are gone and Zuc is barely performing at the level...so forget them!!
Would you want to bring up Newbury who is the leading scorer with 20 goals and 30 ast or Deveaux who has 19 goals...13 coming on the PP...
The only difference is Scott will not dress come payoffs..
2 years, 5 months ago on Is It Time to Ride Lundqvist? | March
We finally agree on something!!!! With Pitt and Philly right behind us...its time for Lundqvist to strap on the saddle and have the Rangers ride him like Zorro to a #1 seed...
However, if the Rangers are going to do anything, they are going to need to score more then a goal a game, and get the PP going....Hank cant put up a zero every night!!!
Shocked no mention of Gabby taking over the 3rd period... Was on another level!!
Haven't seen Prust man handled like that ever.... If the game wasn't so tight, would have liked to see the big boys go after him
2 years, 5 months ago on Rangers 4, Bruins 3 | March
"bone bruise can keep you out for a month".. This isn't Ike Davis and the NY Mets... This is hockey, if these were meaningful games I have no doubt he would be out there.. Skated yesterday, torts said he wanted in... Think they are looking big picture...

Disagree...while they should be aware of the rules... How about Biron make a save... 4 goals a game over last few starts... Plus giving up early goals, that could/should e saved... Put this one on Biron more then dz and boyle

You ha e to be able to score on the PP in the playoffs I your going to win a series.. Yet a cup.. That being said, I don't like any on those guys for what it may cost to get them...propal makes a bit of sense, cheap and can handle torts and NY... Not sure who sits in his place.. In the playoffs I'm guessing Rupp isn't going to see the lineup
2 years, 7 months ago on Lots of Trade Deadline Options for the Rangers | January
This whole thing is a joke!!! I am actually on TW side and believe MSG is to blame as they are probably trying to get that 50% increase.. Just liked they increased ticket prices for Knicks and Rangers fans due to their renevations... Unfortunately, I the missing games, I have kids and can't go out for every game and don't wont to... I will be looking into getting Verizon Fiios by the end of the month if this doesn't change by Jan 22.. Anyone have Verizon fios... Is it any good?
2 years, 7 months ago on Little Hope for Quick Resolution Between Time Warner & MSG | January
I thought the ref were fine until the last 3-4 minutes...I liked that they let both teams play...lots of hitting and they let it go which was great as it looked like they werent going to be a factor either way.
Then, the delay of game call of McD, which was clearly interference and should have been a Rangers PP...then the double call on Cally, which clearly was not a dive..could have been a penalty shot Rangers, unless its an automatic goal when goalie is pulled, dont know the rule....and finally the penalty shot...just about as bad of a 3-4 minutes you will see form an officiating crew...They should have just put on Flyers Jerseys and grabbed a stick since they clearly wanted a tie game and overtime....
Great comeback win!!! lets hope Time Warner and MSG can get their shit together so I can watch the next game!!!!
2 years, 8 months ago on Rangers 3, Flyers 2 | January
Someone asked Tortorella "what do you make of what happened at the end of the game?' Tortorella responded "it was a sucker punch....he got what he deserved"
Best shift of the season for Rupp!!!!
2 years, 8 months ago on Rangers 4, Panthers 1 | December
Mitchell, EC, Rupp, and especially wolski do not and should no be getting a spot on the Rangers roster over Sean Avery... This is an awful move by Torts!!! Man he is a tough guy to like for more then 5 min...

@KevinDeLury I'm typing on my phone... Lots of errors
2 years, 8 months ago on A Rangers Way of Doing Things | December
@KevinDeLury As of now Torts has not done anything Renney has accomplished...That being said, this is is playing the style of hockey that this particular coach wants them to and as of now it's working...however, ignoring Renney, who helped developed/find the talent this team has, as well as change the philosophy of developing from within should not be forgotten..
While Torts deserves some credit... I think Tom Renney deserves most of it.. It was Renney who decided the hartford team had to play the same system as the Big club, that players coul be brought up and seamlessly be put in the ice with a basic knowledge of the system the Rangers play.Not to mention Callahan, Dubi Lundqvist, Staal, Girardi, we're all brought in under Tim Renney... Let give credit where credit is really do!!!
I have time Warner...this is bullshit!!!

2 years, 8 months ago on Anisimov Addresses Rifle Celebration | December
Thought the celebration was over the top....dont think it was aimed at the goalie, as I dont think he was in the net anymore..either way, dont need to do that in this league, save it for the NFL....
Shame on me for thinkingTorts had turned the corner and would continue to roll 4 lines...
2 years, 8 months ago on Lightning 3, Rangers 2, SO | December
No need for girardi to go after Ovechkin for that hit..clean hit by a non goon---if anything, crush him later in the game during play...they were matched up all game.
1st time since Torts became coach that he came close to rolling 4 lines...if this is the lineup, he should feel comfortable to keep it going..
Going to need some help with 3rd defensive pairing...need more then 7-8mins a night from them..eventually going to wear out our top 2 pairs...and God forbid an injury to any of the top 4 and we are screwed...I thought we were supposed to be deep at defense...even with stall out I thought we would have better options..
Finally, Is it me or do the Rangers own the Caps during the regular season.....
