I just hope they come out playing on Thursday, win, and then destroy the Devils!

And this is why Callahan is the heart and soul of this team. I really hope some of the other guys can play with his energy and drive...because then we will be a difficult team to play. Im confident they can do this, but its just a matter of when and how often that will determine the rest of the season.

Biron is right when he says they WERE hard to play against...Looking at the way they play now we are definitely not the same team, but it has only been 17 games...yeah in a shortened season it is more significant but hope is not lost. I believe the guys they have are more than capable (like Cally said in his post game comments). Everyone just needs to play with more fire and heart like we did last year. We need to stop using the excuse that we lost that when losing Dubi, Anisimov, and Prust...Some people just need to step up and fill those spots. It can be done.

It was a quiet MSG tonight...the Penguins didn't even play that great tonight, but they definitely out played us. That is all that is needed. I'm not concerned about the talent of our roster, but I am concerned about their lack of effort. When they get a good consistent forcheck we are a difficult to team, but again we fail at consistently. Hope they pick it up sooner rather than later.

I have faith in our Rangers! They just need to get back to that strong forecheck we were known for last year. We have seen it in some games this year already, but it just hasn't been consistent. Consistency is the key to our success. Also, I feel like we are missing a lot of shots from the point...they need to be on goal.
As far as defense, I feel like other teams are utilizing their D to take shots from the point and get deflections in on net. They know that is the only way to beat the King when he is at his best. I am all for them blocking shots, but we need to cover the D at the points and win the battles along the boards to help out the King.

I would think that the lockout is hurting the small market teams more than the larger ones. Isn't this the source of the economic problems in negotiating a new CBA? I also believe these markets will be hurt the most post-lockout, in terms of lost fans...besides, they were already hurting before the lockout. I think relocating some teams to a better hockey market should be considered...of course I'm not expert on logistics or anything but you're only as strong as your weakest link..

Bettman and the NHL Executives that are holding the NHL back need to go! I don't believe another league would do it for me, bc I would just miss the Rangers and the history they have too much.

@TheNYRBlog it could be worse...it could have been Snooki or Mike the Situation. Out of all of them, Vinny is the best.

This whole thing makes me sick...I can understand why the players feel like they are getting the "shake down" but honestly this is not going to make them unable to live financially sound. The owners are just as bad, if not worse. They both need to start thinking about the fans and the long term stability of the NHL.

@_Jack @BuckarooClub @KevinDeLury I feel the exact same way...It's not like that they are going to ever decrease the prices for us. We would be lucky if they remained where they are!
The NHL and NHLPA need to understand they are absolutely nothing without us diehard fans...they need to start making progress for us.

@thenyrblogneill @KevinDeLury and maybe he wont be injured... did i just see a pig flying?????
In regard to the Bob Hepburn article, I don't believe another pro hockey league in the US and Canada would fill the void for me. I love hockey, but I love my New York Rangers more and just want to see them in action. I can't pick sides (NHL or NHLPA) because I believe they are both at fault. It's just unfortunate that the loyal fans will suffer the most from this lockout and that most of us will probably come back once it is done with. How do other people feel about this?
No matter what they say all they are doing right now is creating bad publicity for themselves. They need to realize that this is going to hurt the economy and the "average Joes" who work at the arenas, training facilities, and nearby businesses. I want my NYR hockey and that's it!
