    As Future said, they've only 3 of 5. And if you read my post earlier aside from being outshot, these physical aspects that you cite are untrue. The only thing you're correct about there is that the powerplay has been abysmal.

    But then again, I ask, how does Tanner Glass or Steven Kampfer aid the team presently? They don't.

    I actually think the hit totals are a little misleading, as they're just the result of not having the puck more. I've made the same argument but, to just watch, it sure looks like the Rangers are the less physical team.

    I don't think it really matters, but hit totals are pretty meh, even though i've made that same argument lol

WTH do the players do while the coaches are meeting with them? What do the coaches do while meeting with each other? I'm asking all the experts who seem to be privy to everything NYR. Me? Just an old time Ranger fan that is saddened by how this group plays game in, game out. Surprisingly, they seem to be headed for the play-offs. How? One could only wonder.
    The coach was VERY pissed (in a low-key simmering AV way) after the last game -- see post game interview. Knew something had to give. Message sent. Sadly this probably penalizes the 4th liners, when its some much higher paid folk who need to look in the mirror. For all this, I doubt Tanner Glass feels any more appreciated, as he is brought up because the big team failed more so than he "succeeded."

    As for Kampfer, to me it seems like we need another uninjured body on D, nothing more.
    If n ya gots jowls, they might as well be furry ones.

    It's not like they went out and lost 5 games to teams in the cellar.
    Ok, 3 of 5. My bad. Point is, every NHL team plays within the same schedule. Some teams have atrocious travel requirements. Yes, every team has ups & downs. However, this group is supposedly play off bound. I imagine they will be facing " playoff teams ", no? What then? More excuses? More blah, blah, blah. Oh, the travel. Oh, the schedule. Oh, the weather is too cold or too hot? Oh, it's raining. Oh, it's snowing. C'mon. Play for 60 mins. with heart, grit, determination from within. The King said it all the other nite; paraphrasing him; " We need the will to do it. Have to find the will. Tactics aside, we need to have the mindset ". These guys are soft, inconsistent, pass up scoring opportunities by not shooting, and in many instances are not ready from the first puck drop. Make all the excuses you want. I watched the Pittsburgh/Buffalo game last nite and the NYR should have done the same.

    What about it? Pitt was totally unprepared to play and went down 3-0 in the first period, at home, after a day off.

    The schedule is a reason for the inconsistency, not an excuse. Look how well they played in early February when the schedule was normal vs. how they played in December and the end of February.

    Rangers Re-Call Tanner Glass and Steven Kampfer

    Yea I wouldn't be so fast to get on the team without including the coach in this conversation. Idgaf that AV was pissed. If his message is getting lost on the team for whatever reason than it's up to him and his staff to find another way. As for Lundqvist, there was a point in time where he was shitting the bed so bad, fans wanted Rantaa to take his spot. I highly doubt his teammates were giving him an earful as he does with them. I'm not arguing with the last point he made because he's right, but this kind of shit happens. It's on everyone. From the players to the coaches.

    And for what it's worth, this team is playing AV style hockey so if you're tired of them playing "soft" you know where to look.

    Yup. Admittedly unprepared; or maybe just outplayed. Came back from down 0-3 with 4 straight. Never gave up. Always played hard. Feet always moving. Did you watch the game? The schedule is the reason? Now that's really comical because every team, as I said, has to play under the same schedule.

    I did watch the game. Their feet weren't moving until the second period and even then, if not for a lucky bounce on the first goal, they might get run out of the arena.

    The Rangers are a team that gives up? That's nonsense. They come out flat from time to time and there are times where they aren't particularly sharp, but they're not a team that quits.

    No, not every team plays the same schedule. Yes, every team has bad games because of their schedule.

    Every team plays 82 games. The makeup of those games in regards to frequency, distance, the opponents, etc. is not consistent.

    I, for one, am glad that AV was P.O'D. It's about time he gave a public indication that he is far from satisfied with the overall play; especially in the defensive zone. I don't think the head coach is telling the players to watch the other team take liberties; especially when it impacts the game. Yes, H.L. had a bad stretch after bailing out this team for a decade. Fans calling for his head makes no sense. And, he didn't single out a particular player in his statement. Referred to the team in general. There are several hi-profile players on this team that have now had pro-longed bad stretches; where are their replacements? You know the #'s. The coaching staff can only do so much preaching. It's up to the players to produce.

    When the players say, in public, the announcers, say in public, the coaches say in public that the team starts are horrible. Then I imagine that the team starts are horrible on most occasions; not from time to time. The 1st Habs goal was a lucky bounce as well. And I never said that the Rangers gave up. Only was referring to Pittsburgh and the improbability of a victory. Especially doing it with little time left. One more thing. These players are pros, period, and are paid huge amounts of money to perform at a high level. They all know the schedules and that they have to adjust accordingly. Rarely do they complain. Just one more excuse from the fans.

    AV has openly stated that the schedule was problematic.

    I might not watch another game now just for the fact that we will have to listen to MSG's bs telling us how this is needed and Glass will add a missing element.
    F off

Plus he can PK, which they lost some of when Fast went down.
    I love Glasser but he can't help the PK if he's cooling his heels in the sin bin or the locker room for five..

    Pittsburgh won 4-3 after going down 3-0.

    3 of 4 Rangers have been terrible. Every team has injuries, tough travel, etc this time of year. Doesn't mean the Rangers are destined for a first round exit.... but they need to be playing better hockey in April then they are now.

    I may be mistaken, but isn't this their first really rough patch they have had all season? They certainly look down, but this is new. They have finally hit that cold patch everyone was saying they would. Goals are down for this team. They are allowed this rough patch. They are also kinda banged up. Let a not forget Zib missed a game with some phantom upper body injury that I don't recall being discussed. He looks like shit. Stepan looks slower than ever. Kreider while being the hot hand is still playing like he's wounded. Grabner is out. Pirri has become Stepans look alike, without the defensive aspect. Klein is out. Girardi is out. Fast is out. What exactly are you expecting right now? Dominance? This team doesn't have to hit everything in sight. They ARE going to be pushed around. THEY WILL ALWAYS BE PUSHED AROUND! The difference is they will have to be smart enough to take or avoid the cheap stuff, and not retaliate. They need to play smart. Don't get me wrong. They should play more physical than they have recently. But I'm not expecting or wanting Tanner fuckin god damn Glass to do any stupid shit like trying to amp up the opposition.

    This league has moved past the Tanner Glass' of the world. These other pests can atleast skate, win a face off , pot the occasional goal, or kill a penalty. Tanner Glass doesn't bring any of that. He brings a reputation of shitty player who can barely fight. He will be in the box before he can stand up for his teammates.

    Buch was technically an emergency call up for the Grabner injury. Once Grabner comes back, they can send Buch down and it won't count as one of their 4 call ups.

    However, with the way Buch is playing, I'm not sure he should be sent back, but with AV off his rocker these days, anything is possible.

    They have skill. They know how to win. The problem is, are the coaches able to adapt? Doesn't seem like it.

    Yes. I'd bet the Rangers have a winning record against the 15 teams currently in a playoff spot.
