I'm dying to see this kid in action against professionals in the nhl.  We still need people to put the puck in the net.  How bad could his defense be?

Moving Hagelin would be a mistake..  Speed doesn't grow on trees.  He was dynamic in the playoffs and his shooting has improved.  Let him put on a few more pounds of muscle and he might be a mini Kreider.. 

Boyle can be replaced.  Besides, who would you trade him for that is better without giving up another prospect.  Sorry, he's too good .

Maybe if Pouliot gained 15 lbs. of muscle to protect Brass and Zucc I would consider keeping him.  Otherwise his bonehead penalties and constant offsides will not be missed.  Personally, I'd like to give Kristo a chance or a real goal scorer.

Am I the only one who is upset about AV's Tortorella's defensive plan the entire third period?  Ironically it worked by some miracle and the King's superhuman effort.  I hate this kind of hockey and I doubt it will work further down the playoff road.  On the positive side I can relax until Saturday.

I hope it's not Av who doesn't know how to motivate Nash, but he shouldn't have to.  New York always accepts players who look like they're playing hard all the time.  Nash was flying down the wing a few times last night.  Maybe he had to to keep up with Kreider.  Now Nash looks like Jagr in his last year with the Rangers when he lost interest.


We don't look as fast as the Pens unless it's our style.  A few times those fast line changes force us to dump the puck in which is not our forte.  We never seem to be in position for rebound goals,either.


Let's face it.  Nash and an old St. Louis can't compare to Malkin and Crosby.  We are at least two top players short of being on a par with the elite teams.  I don't know if our Hartford players are the answer down the road.

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!

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!

This was a game that showed the shortcomings of Strahlman, Boyle, Pouliot, Hagelin and Stepan.  We are just too weak to score in front of the net.  How is Kreider being used that he never gets a shot on goal from a pass from Stepan.  If Nash and Kreider didn't pass to each other they would never have a shot on goal.  Move Stepan to the second line  and move Brassard up.  We have too many mediocre players.  I would dump Dorsett now.  God I hope Oscar Lindberg is tough!

You forget that the Rangers rarely have high draft picks so a lot of them are gambles.  Kreider was a 19th pick-not too shabby.  Miller was a 15th--the juries still out.  Actually, Clark has done a remarkable job considering the draft picks Sather gave away.  Bobby Sanguinetti was the only real bust under Clark and I think he was drafted 21st.

Are we too slow?  Maybe.  We definitely are not strong enough.  We get flattened if we stand in front of the goal(except Kreider).  I think AV should start an upper body weightlifting club and rehire the skating teacher that Boyle hired the summer before he scored 20 goals.

As great a goaltender that Lundqvist is, I think he would make his life easier if he could stop the puck better behind his goal and pass it to one of his teammates and not the opposition.  Maybe I'm just nitpicking, but it is frustrating to watch him mishandle the puck.

Also, the Rangers will never be a top team unless they start winning the majority of their faceoffs, especially in the offensive zone.  They have an expert goalie coach.  How about finding one who can teach how to win faceoffs.  Spare no cost!

@ejirish Agree.  Kristo is a scorer.  Could he play worse than Pouliot?  Brassard looked terrible last night.  Couldn't keep the puck on his stick.   Why is Fast still up?  He looks lost and weak.

Still don't know why Kristo isn't recalled.  Has to be better than Fast.  The kid is a scorer and we have none!

@blueshirt21 You're probably too young to remember Don Murdoch.  He was a pure shooter and scored plenty as a rookie.  Kreider is a fast skater with a good shot.  Put him on a line with Brassard and watch him score.  He's as big as Pouliot and certainly has more potential.  I also wonder about Miller's lack of speed.  Hopefully he learns how to compensate.  Even Kristo is a scorer.  Bring him up not Powe.

Not giving up on Zuccarello.  Too many of his passes are mishandled or simply missed by linemates.  He probably should take more shots than he does.

@DrewMichael if I didn't realize it before, DZ is really a terrible defenseman.  He has no upper body strength to keep his man off the puck and he still can't find the net with his shot.  I'd rather watch Mcilrath make mistakes.  At least he's strong.
