State of the RangersMarch 6, 2013, by
As I mentioned yesterday, we here at Blue Seat Blogs like to dig deep and cover the Rangers from a very analytical level. Sometimes that’s systems posts, other times that’s advanced stats post, other times it’s scouting report-type posts. Today we wanted to go a different direction and get off our high horse. We reached out to one of our frequent readers, Vince Rosalia, to step back and give you all an overview of the Rangers from a fan perspective. We hope you enjoy.
Man, this team is done. From the coach on down everyone just sucks (except Nash and maybe Cally). We need to get rid of Gaborik, he is just a bum. Can you believe he only had two assists the other night? Please, it was the power play, so it hardly counts. He is only number two on the team in scoring, a whole two points behind Nash!
I don’t care if Gabby’s tied for the top goal scorer on the team for the second year running (as of Monday). It is clear Gabby is done and there is no chance of him picking it up this season. His current pace of 17 goals is a total loss. We had better trade him for top talent while we can. I mean, I am a commenter on a blog, so I know more than a GM and his scouts would.
And look at Kreider, he sucks too. It was clear from the small sampling of last year’s playoffs that he was one of the next numbers to be raised to the MSG rafters. But now he is destroyed due to Torts constantly berating him. I mean, we haven’t heard Torts trash him, and he has even said to the media that the kid is just learning and is fine, but WE know what is really going on behind the scenes and Torts is just feeding us lines.
I can’t believe Torts ruined him during the lockout while Kreider played poorly in the AHL. And then he ruined him in the NHL by putting him in his famous dog house by not giving him top minutes. I can’t believe a coach would force a kid like Kreider to back-check and worry about playing defense. He kept him in the NHL too long. And don’t tell me about needing to fill Nash’s spot due to injury. Injuries are NEVER an excuse! RUINED!
And look at what Torts has done to all the young forwards. He clearly ruined Step and Hagelin. Those guys are just simply floundering. In fact let’s give every forward on the Whale a slot on the top six on the top club! It’s a perfect plan. Everyone knows that every one of our prospects are locks to be the cream of the crop of the NHL. It’s a no brainer.
Speaking of defensive responsibility…MDZ, that kid will be polishing Suit’s shoes real soon. He’s 22, with three seasons under his belt. Plenty of time for a dman to develop into what he is going to be. He’s another one that Torts ruined by holding him accountable and insisting he improves upon his mistakes. I wish Torts would just shut up and coach him. Clearly that kid hasn’t shown improvement since his rookie year.
I mean it’s clear that the only players worth a damn on the team are Cally and Nash. And Nash is clearly an idiot saying stupid crap like this the other night after a dominant performance over Tampa:
“You look at that first period and after, we stuck with the system and obviously the system works. So if we can all buy in to that and stick with the system, we’re a good team.”
LOL Nash, clearly an ass kisser. Forget your systems and stats posts guys. This is where the Rangers are really at. 😉
Side note: If you can’t detect the sarcasm, you should just give up.
