    The Rangers are playing like the biggest bunch of pussies in the NHL Sidney Crosby’s pushing the Rangers around behind the net .God I wish Brian Burke was a general manager on a sidenote Michael Haley is playing his first game since his injury for the Hartford Wolfpack tonight

    • Dave says:

      Haley is not the answer to this team’s woes.

      • Al says:

        Ron Dugay said during the second intermission that this team is playing with no emotion no passion no with no anger not setting the tone for the next game you D people like that this team is actually playing with the emotion of their coach maybe they should be playing with the nastiness and dirtiness of their assistant

      • AD says:

        And Dominic Moore is? Move Boyle to center and play Haley on the wing. C’mon.

        • joe719 says:

          Just move Boyle, Period!!!!!!!

          • AD says:

            He is next, for sure, partly due to his $1.7mm contract. But Moore first, then trade Boyle to a top team looking to make a deep run in the playoffs. I think a team like that would offer a late 2nd round pick (which is more like a low 3rd rounder).

  2. joe719 says:

    I know he is playing behind a lousy team right now, but can we stop with the act after giving up a goal, Hank. Looking up to the heavens only shows up your team, doesn’t do anybody any good; including yourself. You signed up for the next 7 years, you knew what you were getting into. Just take it like a man, and move on!

  3. joe719 says:

    Wow, Zuccarello is having a really good game. He stands out because he is the only one who bothered to show up. Would love to see what he could do on a good team.

  4. AD says:

    Dorsett out 4-6 weeks.

    • Al says:

      Haley is back playing in Hartford tonight maybe they call up 6’3 220 Kyle Beach or,6’4 235 AKIM ALIU or ARRON ASHAMEdit (in 5 minutes)

      • Al says:

        Or Sather trades for a real HW

        • Rob says:

          Dorsett Boyle D Moore Asham MDZ all need to go.

          Maybe Lundquist needs to stop being a crybaby or trade him also

          • flatbush says:

            Too late for that. When he opened his mouth last year it started the wheels in motion for a new coach. The king should put up or shut up. See it was never the coaches fault that we couldn’t score. Sather decided to keep the King, replace the coach with someone who would make us an offensive juggernaut except he forgot to get the goods to make it happen. AV is now the scapegoat because sather made poor decisions and has done nothing. They all deserve what they get and get what they deserve. Transformed the garden! Its not the building! Disgusted

    • Johnny Drama says:

      I think they rushed Cally back once again. He was not noticeable at all out there, and because of his return, we had to break up the Pouliot-Hagelin-Miller line that had been playing so well.

      With Dorsett’s injury, I want to say that Miller gets his spot back…but I don’t think he will be effective playing with Boyle and Moore. I think Beach or, preferably Kristo, should get a chance to grind some minutes out. Kristo has been one of the Wolfpack’s best players and deserves a shot. However, I think Beach would be a better fit on that fourth line than Kristo becuase of his size.

      Lastly, Zuccarello and McDonagh are the only two players on this roster right now who are earning their paychecks. Richards, Nash, Staal, Callahan, and Stepan were all virtually invisible tonight. If those guys continue to be outplayed by The Hobbit, the rangers are in serious trouble. Crosby practically has more points than Kreider Nash and Stepan combined.

    The Dorsett injury hurts, not having enough of a veteran presence/voice/leadership in the locker-room hurts even more…

    • Al says:

      Sather and the hole front office will be in T.O. Sat for the Leaf game so something could take place

      • flatbush says:

        Nothing in Toronto that will make a difference. They are just going to go through the motions for the sake of appearance. The whole front office should stay in Toronto.
