Let's ditch the Boyle with MSL experiment. It didn't work at all. Also, how about using Dominic Moore for all faceoffs in the offensive zone, at least on power plays. He's the best on the team at it.

@DaveFL I wonder too what Av means by "off the Ice". Is Miller burning the midnight oil when he should be in bed?

I have a sneaking suspicion that the other French-Canadian refs feel the same way as Stewart and make calls against the Rangers because they don't respect them. This has been going on for years!
Did you see Nash just watching Zucc getting roughed up? He will never be a winner. Was invisible last night.
Who scouts these college players? We know it's not Sather. Is it Gordie Clark?

@Say my Name I agree with what you said wholeheartedly. Nash does not always use his size and strength to his advantage. He is not a great forechecker and gets knocked down quite readily. Part of that is mental.. why else would Nash spend so much time on the side boards watching the play unfold!
Well , I wanted a laugher and this was one. Hate to be anal about sam and joe but sam said "good" 11 times and Joe said it 10 times but who's counting!

I think AV is confused about what to do with his lines.
Sitting Miller in third period was an overreaction. Picking on a rookie for a mistake inhibits growth. Torts did this with Kreider(Boy, I miss him!). AV is really screwing up MSL. Bounce him around to a few more lines, why don't you. It's hard to get the puck deep when you play 20 second shifts. We need a laugher for a win!

@Say my Name Leetch was the best at keeping the puck in the offensive zone but he didn't have the strength of McD to bang players in the defensive zone.

Mc donagh was too kind not to punch Simmons in the face. He did push him and Simmons went flailing backwards. Bush leaguer than whacked with his stick again.
By the way, now we know why Kreider wasn't himself the last few days. Hope he's back for the Flyers in the playoffs.
Kreider has become invisible because he plays 20 second shifts. He is the only Ranger where opponents back down. For that reason he is worth his weight Literally. Av doesn't see this importance!

Love Kreider, he will be missed against the tougher teams. I don't know if Miller is enough. I'd be tempted to take a look at Kristo or maybe even Haggerty although Av seems to be afraid to use rookies.

Hate to criticize Sam Gordon but lately he has fallen in love with the word "good". It's become his favorite adjective to describe something positive. Nitpicking?
@ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat @Say my Name Agree about Hags and a few more Ranger Lightweights- Brassard, Dorset, etc.
@Bring back Langdon @scrangersfan It might be the perfect time to let Kreider loose on Simmons!
I agree that it was really stupid to have the King's ceremony before the game. It lulled the crowd and the team to sleep.
Av is not using Kreider correctly. Switch him to a line where he doesn't have to watch Nash try to skate through three players. Use him on the penalty kill and the power play. He has too much talent to only play 10 minutes a game.
Where is Steve Vickers when you need him? It was really bizarre to see Girardi and McDonagh scoring from in close. Was that Av's plan or was it just luck on our part?
Refs were trying their best to screw the Rangers in this game. No goal my ass! I think the refs were afraid to call too many penalties against the Blue Jackets. Pouliot should have been benched after that horrible pass. It looked like the King was sleeping. We still pass too much when we should carry the puck and too much passing on the power play. We lucked out at the end thanks to Girardi!

@Dekking89 I definitely agree. King can't stop a high shot anymore and most of the goals he gives up are glove side..What does Av tell the defense during the game? Also, the forwards didn't cover their men in the defensive zone. Stepan is really bad defensively. At times it appears Staal can't see the puck. Strahlman should hit the weights. Is Conor Allen so much worse?
Is Gordie Clark responsible for selecting all the promising rookies selected by the Rangers? fMaybe it's time to dump some of the dead wood and go with a few rooks.
Don't you think every gm is trying to outdo each other? Look at the teams Sather has fleeced.(well, Montreal, anyway). Smith knows talent. He gave up some of that to win the 94 cup. Gartner, Weight etc. Give me Smith.

What is the scouting report on Ryan Haggerty?
Maybe Av should leave him on the ice for a full minute instead of 30 second shifts. Then fine him if he doesn't go to the net. And please find someone who can win an offensive zone faceoff!
1 month, 1 week ago on Nash Wants to Get Inside, But...
I would bring back Neil Smith in a heartbeat. And leave Gordie Clark where he is. The man finds talent with almost no draft picks thanks to Sather!
Stop changing the lines so quickly! Stepan is a mediocre passer. Richards is done! I'm fed up after this game!!!!!
