The complete lack of effort on the part of a majority of the players, while partially the fault of the coach, is more of a problem than the system being run. We had a series of games where the guys did show up on the ice and we controlled the ice, were physical, and put 3-5 goals in the net each night. The talent is there (though maybe not complete enough for a Cup) but the effort every night is disturbing.

I would gladly trade both for a guy like Malkin or Ovi.

BleacherReport had a pretty scathing article about Beach earlier this year. The kid seems to have some skill but not much motivation to use it.

@Kevin DeLury @boogiepicker Buffalo is the worst team in the league, so why not give Hank the start. It would normally be a game the backup starts but with Hank playing the way he has, he needs a win and a good showing. I think there is some distraction with the contract negotiations and it shows up in the fluff goals that have been scored. Hank should put the negotiations on hold until the summer and get his head back in the game. Spending more time with coach Allaire would be a good idea, too.

@Kevin DeLury @Betweentheworlds With how MDZ and Girardi are playing, I would consider packaging both of them in a deal.

Krieder is turning into a stud. He's insanely fast, beginning more physical, and is showing a willingness to to stand near the crease to screen the goalie. Hopefully yesterday's game wasn't a total offensive fluke, as we need more consistent production out of him. I've been really impressed with how his game has progressed this season.

During the stretch where the team was putting up 3-5 goals, they were doing all the right things...hard forecheck, guys in front of the net, physical. Those things have largely been absent for the last few games. Get back to what works!

@cardboardcllctr I somewhat agree, but Im more pissed that two refs missed such a blatant penalty. Its not as if it was behind the play, it WAS the play. That was total BS and Richards had every right to give them an earful at the end of the play.

Bishop played a good game and made some good saves. The lack of traffic in front of the net and the shots from the boards and point also helped make his life a little easier than it should have been. Someone needs to stand in front of the net and act as a screen. We've been taking a boatload of shots the past 3 or 4 games with very little to show for it and it's because there is no one in front of the net to screen and to pick up rebounds.
Hank has been off his game for most of the season. He's shown flashes of brilliance but hasn't been able to sustain that for any meaningful stretch. Talbot has been very impressive in each of the games he has been in and has been earning more and more playing time.
It doesn't help that our defense has been abysmal, giving up multiple breakaways last night, horrible passes, and poor positioning. Staal is meh, MDZ is just awful, and Girardi is nothing like what he has been the past few seasons. McDonough has been pretty good (way better on the PP than MDZ) and Stralman has been effective. Staal, MDZ, and Girardi are all -6 on the season. Stralman is the only defenseman better than -2 and is the only one that actually has a + rating (+1).
I'm not sure what happened to the powerplay but it went from being very effective to "please dont give the other team a penalty!!"

Rangers are 94-0-6 in last 100 games when leading after 2 periods. That is seriously impressive.

@MiddleSwine Without Hank playing his ass off last night, the Stars could have easily put up 5-6 goals.

@KLorNYR Zucc has had a few prime shooting opportunities over the last couple games where he has passed through traffic. He really does need to take advantage of the opportunities he's presented with.
