    He can play LW. He can even play center.

    And give him Blackwell's ice time. Dont really care. Just give Krav more ice time and Kreids less, it shouldn't be that hard.

    They are opposing wingers on this team, not what they "can" be. Kreider playing less means another LW playing more. Who do you want with increased ice time — Lafreniere or Rooney? Because neither is very good either.

    Krav has played on the left for this team aswell. Its not a problem for him. DQ keeps talking about "giving the team the best chance to win", that would be with more Krav and less Kreids, even if he has to play on the "wrong" side.

    If someone else played like Kreids the last 20 games they would've been a healthy scratch the last 10 games, but cause it's a "veteran" we're supposed to say fuck it and just let him play like garbage?

    Must win game against a rival. We lose a leader and a physical presence in Trouba early. Down 3-0 early and things look bad. Kreider's response? -3, 1 SOG (in the last 3 minutes of the game), 1 hit, 0 takeaways and totally invisible.

    I mean, I'm with you in principle, I just don't think they're directly related, is all. I'd also have no problem graduating Kravtsov to the right of Panarin and Strome, full-time.

    Nah, there's been a few horrible players this year.

    His one goal alone gets him of this list, but he's close.

    Yeah they were down 6-0 before losing to the Penguins 7-6. Helluva an effort from them

    Almost feel bad for them.

    Came back from 4-0 to 4-3 and 3-0 to 3-3 just to get 0 points against the rangers the last two games and now almost a 6-0 comeback.

    I guess they’re finding out that its hard to win games with Lindy sorting out the defense.

    This game definitely showed the Rangers still have a bit to go when it comes to really being a contender again. They're getting there, but just not yet. The Islanders may not be the most glamorous team to watch at times, but they play tough, winning hockey. The kind of hockey you need to play to be successful in the postseason too. They were a couple of wins away from playing for the Cup. Plus, they are very well coached, which also makes a difference. Barry Trotz is one of the best of this generation.

    A bit? They got smoked and completely out coached at every turn. There's no structure or layering to this club and it still lacks any identify outside of the ability to score pretty goals off a rush. They can't cycle, they can't grind, they never change gears and they have no real swagger to speak out outside of Trouba and Smith. It's almost like Brooks was right all along about how they're a homogeneous group who really need some added muscle/meat and potatoes to change their dynamic when 8-1 victories can't be had because they're playing against big boy players and coaches.

    I'm logging into my Amazon account and ordering dust pans for the entire team after that loss.


    BTW - No comment from my salty cousin. I know it was delivered 'cause Amazon sent me a pic of the package on his front step.
