I'm tired of this mediocre team and it's mediocre results. Nice meatball pass by brassard. Does he get an assist for that?
That Gaborik trade isn't looking all that great anymore, eh? Granted, Gabby has struggled too and is now hurt, but Brass & Moore are really struggling into obscurity here. And Dorsett is not doing much here, with the exception of the few times he sticks up for teammates.
Only thing that makes that trade still somewhat palatable to the NYR is that they freed up a lot of cap space.
So now talbot got to play with the team that hanks been seeing most of the season... Apparently the rest of the team didn't get AVs text that it was cam in net and they wanted to leave it all up to hank again...
Oh and that super hot line from the nucks game yeah they regressed to having a complete inability to find the back of the net just like when Zucc was there...
Lazy play is clearly contagious...
The goalie "issue" is the equivalent of Mark Sanchez with the Jets. Neither are (or were) the reason the team sucked, just distractions. There is no issue. You start Hank as long as you have him and back-up with Talbot - occasionally sticking to the hot hand. Whether to keep Hank has zero to do with this season, or the next but rather the 3-4 after that.
Sather must be happy as hell that the feebleminded fans and media are focused on the GOALIES when the entire team he has created (and virtually everyone since he has been here) has been AT BEST mediocre to bad.
I actually wanted Talbot to start since he has been on fire lately. But that is not the main reason they lose games like this. The Rangers are never consistent. Are these guys getting hammered the night before certain games? Im Shyyyt out of answers. SO glad i don't have hair. IF i did it would probably fall out this season anyways.
Oh well at least the Rangers aren't the Knicks! How the Knicks still have fans is beyond me! At some point cheering for crap makes you insane right?
enough is enough w/ stepan and brass ups and downs. centers supposed to generate it all and when you talk our offensive inconsistency it starts with those 2 names. neither playing like a 1-2 line center
Too many times we are tied at home in the third and get zippo. If we can't win at home we r doomed. 9 of next 10 at home we either jump the standings and take advantage or bye bye playoffs. Bunch of stiffs. I wouldn't be opposed to bring some young guys in too much deadweight. I'm telling u a trade needs to happen. Staal stinks girardi stinks hagelin stinks, Boyle, poiliot.Time to move. Going nowhere with this core.
These next 10 games will tell us where this team is headed... All home games (I am counting Buffalo because that is a must win at this point) You need at least 6 or 7 wins...
olli 1st star
I agree that Hank should have been in net tonight. I do not like AV's bouncing everywhere he goes. This is getting ridiculous. We are an average team. For some reason i could not log in during the game. Must have been my computer.
Honestly the goalies aren't the problem, its the inconsistency of the team in front of them. One game they're superstars the next they look like pee wee hockey players
@KreiderisTheChosenOne if he scored at the end there we could be watching some OT right now. Open net and everything, doesn't get much easier
@JustinRP37 the who?
@KreiderisTheChosenOne If we cant beat the lowly sabres, this team is hopeless
@AnnoyingJoe 3rd point is killing the Rangers this year... It is also the dumbest thing in all of sports... I mean come on a point for losing. Its like a participation award. In professional sports what a joke
@Say my Name First of all... reinsert Moore for DZ. Then trade DZ for someone with size that can score...
@GiveGartneraCup The team is bi-polar, that's why
@Lordstanleybroadway Ask the Knicks how to win at home. Oh wait...
@DubiLeetch I would rather have Kane
@KreiderisTheChosenOne ever since that shootout shot vs the flyers
@BrendyJohnson Can i be in the passenger seat?
@ATCRyan Talbot didn't play very well... not saying the offense did either but Hank wins this game no question in my mind
