  2. I've seen in several GDT and elsewhere questions about what the Rangers' team identity is under Quinn. I'm encouraging those thoughts to be shared in this thread. Rangers are allowing 2nd most goals per game (behind only Detroit) http://www.nhl.com/stats/team?reportType=season&seasonFrom=20192020&seasonTo=20192020&gameType=2&filter=gamesPlayed,gte,1&sort=goalsAgainstPerGame Lundqvist is 30th in save percentage, Georgiev 39th in save percentage. http://www.nhl.com/stats/player?report=goaliesummary&reportType=season&seasonFrom=20192020&seasonTo=20192020&gameType=2&filter=gamesPlayed,gte,1&sort=savePctg Let's say we can get to league-average in goaltending with a combination of Lundqvist, Georgiev, and Shesterkin. That means some nights they'll pitch a shutout, but some nights we might still give up 4 or 5 goals a game. I see at least 3 approaches. 1. The Florida Panthers approach-emphasis on scoring and the power play. Defensemen pinch in offensive zone and emphasis is on attack. Cons: odd man rushes against, give up more goals. 2. The Ottawa Senators approach- emphasis on grit, hard work, and fulfilling your role - outworking opponent. Cons: difficult to maintain intensity for a 82 game regular season and postseason. 3. The Rangers Tortorella approach-emphasis on lock-down defense and shot blocking. Defensemen better not pinch in offensive zone and not make a play. Cons: sacrifice offense, physical grind on players. I don't see this team making the playoffs without better play from our defensemen and goalies. But given the 3 approaches, I think our roster is best suited to the Florida Panthers approach. We would need to continue to improve our power play. More and more of the players on our roster are offensive-oriented, and haven't shown the inclination to work in the defensive zone. There are many other approaches, so feel free to share alternative team philosophies that would suit our roster.
  3. Not sure if anyone is really into jerseys, or is a collector but I figured some of you may want to check these out. http://auctions.nhl.com/iSynApp/showPage.action?sid=1100803&pageName=profilePage&pgmode1=usahockey&pgmode3=timeleft_asc&navid=auctions-nav-usahockey Team USA game worn jerseys for Sochi are up for auction and they're starting off at a reasonable price. For example the Rangers/Steiner wanted $600 for Taylor Pyatt's jersey from the first half of this season.. I bid the minimum on two of them hoping that somehow they fly under the radar (no chance of that) and end up on the walls of my (future hopefully) office.
  4. As you may have noticed, we are attempting to clean up the trolling and over the top negativity across the forum. We understand that our users are passionate about the Rangers and when things go poorly with the team we all want to express our frustration, but there is a right way and a wrong way to do that. It has become unfair to our members who want to enjoy the discussions, both positive and negative, of our New York Rangers. We will no longer tolerate harping on the same topic over and over. If you've already stated something, like your displeasure for a player, then your next post on that same topic needs to bring a fresh insight. Example: That's fine once in the GDT in the heat of the moment. The second time, it's harping. The 50th time, it's just a nuisance. Comments like these have no place outside of the GDT. Example: That's all fine for the GDT or any other thread related to Nash. Over the top, profanity filled rants are no longer welcome anywhere on the forum at any time. You can use profanity to emphasize a point or displeasure, but if you come on to the forum only after the Rangers are losing to post a series of expletives about a number of players or the team, only to disappear again, you're no longer welcome here. If you can't post without a string of curses, perhaps this isn't the forum for you. If you constantly post on the same topic (such as your displeasure for a specific player/coach or situation) in multiple threads where the topic is something all together different, you will be considered trolling and will receive an infraction. If you receive a warning or an infraction and don't understand why, feel free to ask. However, lashing out at a moderator who issues a warning or infraction will receive another infraction or possible banning. Be polite and we will explain why we came to the conclusion we did and if there was a legitimate misunderstanding, we may rescind the warning/infraction all together. We are often critical of the team we support, wanting, needing them to be better. Well we need to be better here, too. And this needs to be a better place. We can no longer ignore those who ask us to do something about this problem, while bending over backwards to be fair to those causing these issues. There are forums on the internet centered around the New York Rangers where members can and are as nasty and childish as they like. If that's the type of experience you are looking for, then by all means, find one of those. This will no longer be that place. Thank you and LETS GO RANGERS!
  5. According to the article, longer than most around here would like, unfortunately. Excerpts from the article below http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/22371354/nhl-how-long-take-new-york-rangers-become-legitimate-stanley-cup-contenders-again Chris Peters: "The Rangers will need three years to start seeing positive results -- and four or five years before they rejoin the contender conversation." Ben Arledge: "Let's not kid ourselves, though. The Rangers haven't looked like true contenders since the 2014-15 season. Sure, they made the playoffs in the two seasons since, but did anyone actually view them as serious Cup threats? Sending this roster to the body shop for some serious work is the right thing to do at this point. This breakdown has been a long time coming, and it's nice to see the organization commit to it, rather than get stuck guessing between contention and rebuilding. I got the Rangers being back by the onset of the 2020-21 season." Greg Wyshynski:"How long before the Rangers are Stanley Cup contenders again? A lot depends on how deep into the tank they go. Andersson and fellow 2017 draft pick Filip Chytil could be the future. Depending on the rebuild and the lottery odds, perhaps so could be Rasmus Dahlin in 2018 or Jack Hughes in 2019, both of whom are franchise-altering talents. The Rangers should also get a boost from the picks and prospects they acquire in this sell-off. So the general answer is that it won't take long. Not in a league where turnarounds can happen quickly, thanks to the ever-giving gift of parity." Emily Kaplan: "On one hand, New York has made the playoffs in 11 of the past 12 seasons, including winning a Presidents' Trophy and making a trip to the Cup Final in 2014; on the other hand, the Rangers didn't win a Cup during that span and are left wondering: Were the additions of Rick Nash, Martin St. Louis and Keith Yandle worth it?"
