    The Rangers Are A Stupid Hockey Team

    But they always seem to take it to whole new level whenever they play against the Islanders.
    1. Skej leaving Lee all alone to skate to the front of the net, and then skates right into Hank.
    2. Not sure what Staal was doing on the 2nd, but it's what we've grown to expect from him
    3. And on the Isles shorthanded goal, how do you leave the someone all alone in front of the net when you're playing with the man advantage?

    Not sure if picking up a defender will help, but it can't hurt.

    I question if they could sometimes break out of their system and adapt to game conditions. The defense usually can't, I agree.

    The answer to question 3 is:

    Because they are AV soft.

    Meanwhile, anytime a Ranger skated toward the Isles goaltending they were getting the shit bashed out of them.

    The way to beat this team is to forecheck the hell out of them and wait for them to make stupid mistakes, and they usually comply. What I saw tonight was the Rangers losing, rather than the Islanders winning.

    The defense can't for a full 60 minutes, that's for sure

    I would really like to see them package Stepan for a physical defenseman. probably in the minority, but that's how I feel.

    They don't need a physical defenseman. They need a good one.

    They're going to lose games. They weren't going to win out until April.

    What they need to do is nothing. They don't need to do anything at the cost of the future. The dumbest thing they could do is force a transaction in the belief they're just one player away.

    Always sucks to lose to the Islanders... but that loss did end a six game win streak. The question is whether they try and grab a defensemen at the trading deadline or stand pat. This team is locked into the first wild card spot or a spot in the 2-3 Metro playoff series... so the last 25 games are gearing up for the playoffs.

    Of course, they aren't going to win out, but they didn't lose last night's game, they gave it away.

    Know by the end of the season, Stepan's numbers will look okay. But he has hands of stone; if he had any touch around the net he'd be a lock for 40 goals. And he is infuriatingly soft in his own end.

    Writing was on the wall that they'd lose this game
    The shorthanded goal irked me,kind of reminded me of the winner the devils scored against us in the playoffs,x amount of Rangers players by Hank but just standing there looking at it.

    Oh, for a second there I thought the Rangers won 6 in a row. Must've had a dream or something
