. There are no scorers in front of the net.
This team gave no effort tonight. We look weak and scared. Kreider needs to punch someone in the head when they hit him. Just a disheartening loss. there is no spark.
What do you think, could we possibly see Arneil fired or even AV by Christmas because of this disaster? I mean we are at .500 this deep into the season and I do not see this team miraculously going on a tear and winning a ton in a row.
i'm almost ready to pull the plug on this season. we have come full circle to playing like we did out of the gate. i'd say i want a trade but sathers our gm
I just want them to shake it up. Bring in some young bucks from Hartford. Just see what happens. Why the hell not? SOmethings got to give here
This team is so frustrating. We have so much talent, and a great coaching staff, but we need like, 3 prusts.
How about a trade... sometimes change for the sake of change is good. However, right now we need a trade for more reasons than just change...
Alright I'm out to do the dishes and relax. What a joke. The Flyers will be ahead of us by the end of this week.
I love Kreider, but I hope he's a better fighter than Boyle, because one day he's gonna have to answer the bell. That little smirk he had going after spearing the guy in the crease? A little ball-less, much like the rest of the team.
I love how our 'wonderful' commentators are acting like this game hasn't sucked. When we finally shake things up I think they might need to be shaken up too.
Any AHL team would have shown more passion and at least competed! Stars / core guys must have been partying at a shoe bar all night celebrating hanks fleecing slats with his new contract and been too hung over to bother playing...
@Callaqvist he went full Duguay.
@IcyCup oh boy, now Dolan's never gonna get Trautwig those Veneers he so badly needs
@IcyCup he'll be spoken to
@JustinRP37 AV contemplating switching to Trident Layers
@JustinRP37 Jimmy Dolan confronting Del Zotto on his jump shot. #boyandhistoys
@KreiderisTheChosenOne We traded Mash!
@Kevin DeLury You mean one like firing AV by Christmas?
I'd bet superstition. Anyone know who won the auction for his Winter Classic mask? I heard Hank is coming in to some money this offseason, might be looking to buy...
@shoot_the_goalie that one is only for the alternate jerseys
@shoot_the_goalie witness protection
@Kevin DeLury I heard it was 8-years with a no-trade clause.
@Kevin DeLury taking my jokes
@Callaqvist I googled, "Rangers suck d**k" and this image popped up.
@johnnyb3910 only meaningful game he has won for the Rangers
@Callaqvist welcome to the club
