Cant blame Hank, when AV insinuates Hank last week & last night Hank makes a years worth of highlights in one game, the new "offensive" system scores 1 goal.

Curious why Hagelin & Mashinter(?) were cracking up when they announced Nash's number and the camera was on them? Did Hagelin think ppl would confuse Mashinter for Nash?

1 year, 8 months ago on Torts Fired?!?!?!?!
This team does not respect nor respond to Torts. After Torts called them out in the Buffalo loss earlier in the year -they went on a tailspin & got walloped in the next few games. Torts calls out Hags & the team revolts. They only respond to HANK, he plays a brilliant Game 6 vs the caps & the team scores 5 goals in Game 7.
Has there ever been a goalie coach??Hank for coach!
1 year, 8 months ago on Boyle Doesn't Think Rangers Are Done
Since Avery's (in)famous tweet the team has responded with points in 6 out of 7 games& allowing more than 2 goals only once. Hank has been playing his best hockey of the season. Turning point of the year?
1 year, 9 months ago on Brassard: I've never played in a game like this before
He always seemed like the scapegoat bec. Torts painted him as the scapegoat. He & Torts never got along. Torts thinks you have to work to put the puck in the net & Gabby is an exception to that because he is so naturally skilled.
Similar to Kreider & Torts now. Torts Detests Kreider bec. Kreider is a natural scorer with size & torts wants to make his life miserable because of that.

1 year, 10 months ago on Rangers 0, Canadiens 3
The team played so many worse games this year than tonight.
It was a close game until when theRangers sustained an offensive zone pressure in the 3rd down only 1 goal, surprised by the length of their possession & Sens not taking any penalties they started tripping over themselves! & than JT with a lazy drop pass.....and that was it.
Like Dougay said, maybe they shouldn't be practicing because they have zero energy by the time the game starts, or Torts needs to tone down his "high level practices".

Torts miscalculated with the system he was going to run with the addition of high powered offensive players-wasting their talents by trying to run a grinding offense.

True Richy hasnt played well this year , more so due to tepidness with Nash & lack of conditioning. Guys are writing him off too soon.
Nash remembered the big hit JT miller took in the slot against the Devils in the 3rd, and asked himself why is Kopescky open in the slot, so he tried to lay a big body check which turned out badly

Torts can get his system working with a
" us vs the world "approach, a buncha grinders, hard nosed players. But he cant possibly get guys to buy into that system with superstar talent in the lockerroom
1 year, 10 months ago on Rangers , Penguins
Torts has been way off this season, from the terrible game mgmt (leaving his top line PK out in a blowout loss in MTL). His bottom lines have done nothing this year. Anyone can get goals out of top lines but hes just showing how ineffective his coaching is bec. his bottom lines have done nothing. Halpern, Boyle,Powe, those guys really deserve more playing time than Kreider?!?
Will Girardi, and Mcdonagh be around in 5 years, Torts abuses them with ice time.
1 year, 10 months ago on No Need for Torts to Disrespect Sam
Was it me or did everyone else realize how tired the team (except for Hags) looked last night. Nash didnt have that extra jump in his step, and Richy laboring to skate back to cover the weak side on a 3 on 2. This team is poorly conditioned.

Is it chance that Boyle scored while on the ice with Cally, and Hags? Boyle needs to have better linemates and he will be more effective, & net more goals. He isn't good enough to elevate, he needs to be elevated.

1 year, 11 months ago on Biron: We WERE Hard To Play Against
I cant tell if you guys are being sarcastic about G. Hes on the ice to play D & block shots, he cant just turn it on&off like a lightswitch. Torts needs to take heat for putting him in that position. Torts always preaches "protecting his players" so why does he play his top pairs 28min a game and puts his top guys on a pk 5-3 in a blowout game ?torts us gonna run himself out of town very soon.

MDZ missed a wide open net on a Rick Nash pass vs Islanders in OT, and last night he missed a wide open net right above the crease
1 year, 11 months ago on No Update on Del Zotto
It seems from what we've seen Nash is a gamer, and I doubt he would sit out a game for a Groin / Shoulder injury that didn't keep him out of the Caps game. Sucks to prob say he could be dealing with post concussion syndrome. Hope he gets better soon.

2 years ago on The Meaning of "Rangers Hockey"
I dont think we will see the exact same style the team played last year. We have offensive firepower and Torts will prob model his team after that. Maybe you'll see grinding on the 3rd,4th lines but up top is going to be a lot of drop passes, long passes etc. The only thing is the lines haven't gelled yet so you constantly see Richy dropping off passes to the defenders. It will change with a few more games & Barnum and Bailey wont be the greatest show on earth @ the garden!.

Why would the Rangers resign Stu if Torts has no faith in him. Stu is a work in progress and clearly wasn't ready for a big spot in the playoffs. Give him some time to develop before you write him off.

Good piece, with great stat refs. Watching the trap video, it seems those turnovers arent JJ's fault I cant remember seeing such bad picks, forcing JJ into a quick trap. His teammates are doing a very bad job of rolling to the middle, after they pick. It seems like they pick and retreat to the 3 point line, instead of rolling deep.
2 years, 5 months ago on The Joe Johnson Trade-off
I cant see Kreider having a 30 goal season especially with torts at every waking second last postseason preaching about Kreider "learning the season, next year". Hagelin played for the whale for at least 1 season, Kreider did not.
With Nash on the team it will really lower the pressure for Kreider to score, and allow him to learn.
2 years, 6 months ago on Rangers Fans Need to Temper Kreider Expectations | August
If Gabby can score 40 goals in torts' system I can see Nash scoring 40-60 goals. Torts revealed Gabby was reluctant to practice on some days, and Nash is a big bruising scorer. I wonder if Torts will open up the offense now that he has the weapons, which he claimed he didn't last year.

Staal not a top pair? Us Ranger fans are really spoiled right now with our D corp, Staal is a top pair on any team in the league. The guy suffered through a nasty concussion, and could'nt even hit the gym in the offseason, and he came alive in the playoffs, coming up huge at the end of the Ottawa series, and treating Ovi like a
ragdoll against the Caps. Look for Staal to have a huge year this year.
& I personally don't think he wants to play with his brothers, if he did he would be a forward like they are, he's D because he likes playing against them, and kicking their ASSES!

@gravey94 We lost our best scorer to injury for at least half the season until he is back and conditioned, and can we really depend on Cally to again score 30goals this year? Maybe Dubi can take some pressure off of Cally by playing in the offensive zone this year but we struggled with offense last year, and I don't really see any offensive depth.
