    Isn’t as bad as people think, if guys play well, progress, bounce back, whatever you want to call it, especially when potentially looking at using a new system.

    There’s not a top d available, those that are won’t change much.

    Fixing 1 & 2 will help make this defense crew less of an issue

    Id like to see more of him on the wing before a permanent move, but I agree, they need a number 1 center. Do they make a play for Statsny then in the off season? I wouldn't mind him if he can come at the right price.

    I agree. The defense wasn't as bad as they could have been. Better offensive players would take off the defensive pressure. I liked O'Gara and Gilmour's play.

    No. Tavares this summer, if not, Seguin next.

    Don’t look much further ahead than that,as we don’t know what we will have

    I don't think Tavares will sign here, and I don't think Dallas lets Seguin leave.

    Tavares should test the market. He likes the nyc area and is extremely frustrated with that organization. NY lotto - hey,you never know.

    If Hitchcock is there, seguin won’t stay.

    I agree. I just think the defense is clearly the most critical issue. Especially if they have any hope of making next season a playoffs year.

    They can get by with a lower tier 1C in Zibanejad. They can't get by if Smith, DeAngelo, etc don't take major steps forward.

    Why? O'Gara bleeds shots and attempts and Gilmour can't skate backwards. He's a forward playing defense.

    If these two are on your NHL roster, your team probably sucks.

    Lias reminds me of a young Kopitar (lite). Just the way he moves around. Not at all suggesting similar production.

    My instincts were wrong! AV has now been relieved of his coaching duties, so we can start fresh this offseason

    Now we can start off on the right track, starting with drafting players that can fill our holes on defense and center, and maybe signing Karlsson or JT in free agency

    Amen in spades. AV had nothing to work with especially on defense. The corporate methodology leaves GGG in charge and a brilliant hockey man looking for a job. Maybe I will just concentrate on Boca Juniors and the sad Argentine national team (NMNV) so I can spend my evenings enjoying my life. After 70 years of frustration I have just about had it.

    I love hockey and have loved the Rangers but this may be the final straw. If I were "The King" I would ask for a trade to a real team that would give me a pathway to the Hall of Fame instead of the Hall of Shame that GGG has left me with.
