    I’m only about halfway through the podcast but I have to take issue with the statements about forechecking and cycling the puck. I don’t agree with this guy Kearns at all that the Rangers don’t need to do that because they rely on the transition game. We’ve seen game after game this year when the transition games falls flat because of bad ice, teams clogging the neutral zone or pressuring the Rangers in their own zone or just because things aren’t clicking. In those cases the Rangers pile up icing call after icing call when the home run passes fail and often end up losing because they don’t have a plan B.

    There’s an old saying that every boxer has a plan until he gets hit. Well, when the transition game gets hit, as it will against teams that have an effective counter (and its not exactly rocket science to figure out what the Rangers are trying to do) the Rangers need another plan as would any team. And that involves getting the puck deep, cycling and looking for the dirty goals. Not every goal has to be a highlight reel performance. Deflections, second and third-chance rebounds, etc, are the bread and butter of hockey especially against the better teams and in the important games.
