    Hard questions need to be answered about this team's defense. They were unprepared for their competition which lies in the blame of the coaching staff.

    The questions aren't hard. They're actually easy to answer.

    I think Ruff was kept around for other reasons than performance. Now that he has helped show Quinn the ropes of NHL management, the Rangers can let Ruff go in the offseason.

    Team stinks. A decision to hang on to any of these players would be short sighted.

    Rangers. Need. Talent.

    I still don't know why we haven't traded players such as Namestnikov. We need to get draft picks in the trade deadline and will be sellers at best. Tanking has begun in earnest

    Terrible on both Offense and Defense. Might as well trade our Mediocre Talent when we come to the trade deadline to build up draft capital. Who we draft will be better than the sieves we have on defense right now.

    Because trading is a two-way street that requires another team be willing to take that player on in exchange for something. That usually occurs around the deadline becuase that's the cheapest point of the year in which teams' caps are maximized.

    Quinn is simply intent on playing Lunquist into the ground. He's going to end up with an absurd number of starts for a 37 year old by the end of the season.

    Rangers schedule has been pretty light. Lots of time off between games up until this point. I imagine he's trying to keep the Rangers as close to the playoff race as possible.

    The next two weeks are insane and the season finale is like I've never seen. I imagine Georgiev will start getting more time. I don't blame him for playing Hank. Hank is literally the only reason the team isn't in last.

    Well that beat down has been coming for a while.
    Hopefully this is the start of a run to improve our draft position.

    Its so annoying that this team is so bad, but still not even in the bottom 10 of the league.

    Yeah but they should already be there, competing for the last spot.

    I saw the last ten minutes of the second period (when the Penguins scored 4 goals, and the Rangers scored one) and the final score (family needed me for stuff). Penguins are an explosive team that buried their chances... they only had about 15 shots and 4 goals when I was watching. The Rangers are suspect defensively, and their goaltending didn't bail them out tonight.

    The Rangers are the same team we've been watching for the past month... they faced an explosive team playing good hockey last night. Penguins/Capitals/Lightning are the kinds of teams the Rangers would have to beat in the ECF. They would have to survive two rounds of playoffs to get to the ECF.

    NHL history has no. 8 teams or wild card teams making deep runs. So some in the fan base can hope for that scenario.

    I want to rebuild.... not by selling vets for 25 cents on the dollar. But by getting fair value for players... and taking advantage of desperate teams looking to make trades to make the playoffs or make a deep playoff run.

    With his salary, and given there aren't going to be a lot of back to back nights, that's a given. Can't get top dollar salary number and not expect to be depended on 65+ games this season. Unless he wants to talk to the Rangers NHLPA about adjusting his salary down a bunch, and that is never happening.

    Lefty man, you're right, my good man! This team needs to lose, and we got what we needed. It's just so painful to watch, that our inner-most Ranger fan can't withstand such putrid efforts. I can't stand the fact that they're bordering on trying to make the playoffs as well; this team needs to shit the bed sooner than later.

    I suppose for me, it's plays like where Buchnevich gets pushed off the puck by Letang, who barely even scratched him with his purse, and he goes in and leaves Hank's jock hanging on the crossbar. That kinda shit makes me wanna take a running start and jam my penis into an electric socket, while standing in a bucket of water. I'll be shocked if Buch doesn't sit next game...or more!!! That kid needs a serious ass kickin' to toughen him up.

    I don't find watching this painful, at all. It was too be expected.

    It's like watching your house get renovated. Yea it'll be a dump for a few months, but the finished product should be well worth it.
