With fire. With passion. They did not. They no-showed. Only Michael Grabner and the goalies showed up. They embarrassed themselves on home ice.

Another one by Barzal. This time he got by Skjei, who isn’t exactly a slow skater himself. Barzal got enough room –or just Skjei didn’t tie him up properly– to receive the pass from Beauvillier, get a shot off, and get his own rebound. Not a good game by Skjei (or Shatty).

Jesper Fast with the turnover. Then Beauvillier gets 15 steps on Nash to receive the pass off the boards and rip it past Ondre Pavelec. Nick Holden also with a pansy check on John Tavares to prevent the pass.

Oh hey the Rangers scored. This was good puck movement and then a good luck by Mats Zuccarello to get the shot in a spot where Mika Zibanejad could deflect it. This was a nice one.

Presented without comment. I’m also not bothering with the last goal.

Is this rock bottom? Wasn’t it last week? Last month? November? The sad thing is that the club actually had a chance in the first. And then they just no-showed.

The Isles, specifically Barzal, made the Rangers, a team built on speed, look slow. It was pathetic, especially on home ice against a historic rival. The worst part? No emotion, whatsoever. This is probably the worst game I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of clunkers.

      Then you missed the “let’s save the coach’s job” game years ago to try and save Tom Renney’s job and the Rangers “responded” by getting torched something like 10-2. Renney was fired the next day.

    I also thought Hayes played ok.

    At this point I am fine with leadership being happy icing a team that may or may not make the playoffs and wouldn’t not be able to win a series.

    the Rangers are becoming a distraction from winter for me, I have no hopes they will lift a cup with this setup.

    I was touched seeing Henrik try to coach the team while he was being brought into the game. I was thinking a time out would be normal…

    These players play like robots. As mentioned in the last post finally this year I shut off a Rangers vs Islanders game. (The first game they played at MSG against an arch rival.). The games in the NHL have become very generic.
    NHL needs to get rid of the rivalry nonsense on Wednesday nights, it is a fraud…..lol.
    I remember teams would fight, battle show emotion even in losses. To be fair the Golden Knights play old school. They don’t give up. This is the sole reason they have the record they have. They also adjust in game.
    I watched a game against the Ducks, Ducks came out banging. The Golden Knights by the 10 minute mark were the bangers and the Ducks realized that wasn’t going to work. Guess who won decisively?
    The Rangers would’ve been ok….let’s get out of this game by not getting hurt and go through the motions.

    I (and many others) pay approx $10K per year to watch this team play. When you go to a retail store and buy something that’s broken, you either get an exchange for a new one or you get a refund.

    Since we are not getting a refund, I want a full value exchange on my money. Meaning, from top to bottom, I (we) want a full evaluation of every spot in the organization and change what needs to be changed. Management, coaches, players, etc. All of them.

    It starts at the top but Jimmy James Dolan is too busy fending off Harvey Weinstein related lawsuits to be involved. Maybe that’s a good thing, that he’s not involved in the Rangers.

      Maybe if you were paying attention, you would be less frustrated. JG decided long ago that the Rangers were very unlikely to win the 2018 Cup and made a conscious decision not to go all in. The big offseason acquisitions were Andersson, Chityl, DeAngelo – guys who were not realistically going to be ready. Gone was the top center and the top RH dman was replaced by a younger guy who is likely to be better in the long run, though not likely in the short run.

      This year is about three things – developing kids, deciding how those kids will fit into the serious Cup contender of 2019 or 2020, seeing what current pieces complement those kids. When you’ve answered questions two and three (one isn’t a question), you know what moves you need to make.

      For now, the key is to not make the wrong moves.

      The toughest thing fro Gorton are the Rangers fans who won’t accept a serious rebuild – and the people at BSB are very much among them. And a serious rebuild does not entail trading guys you don’t like for half their value. It also doesn’t mean firing a coach when you are not sure exactly who the right coach is.

        Nice statement. I agree 100%. It just guys are doggin it and as a fan it is very frustrating to watch.
        True Rangers fans would rather watch them lose with lesser talent but bring a much more competitive effort. The years of Duby,Cally, and Anisomov cycling on the back boards were not exactly NHL talent shows. But every night they played hard. That is why fans still love Cally to this day.
        Personally I would rather see the likes of Nieves Carey and Fast getting the 20 minutes of ice time a night then that thing AV puts out there.

        I said it personally myself …If Gorton can get anything for anyone I would be impressed. Sakic really destroyed this trade market.

    Watching Henrik try to coach the team as he was going into the game was hard to see, I thought a time out was needed by the timid frenchman…

    I was also hoping someone would try to spark the team, but I am sure their hands a re tied from any aggressive play.

        November 8 points in 12 games
        December 4 points in 13 games
        January 1 point in 5.

        I will live with his defensive deficiencies if he is putting up numbers. But his production has been on a steady decline since the start of the season.

            This team reminds me of how they looked following the Rick Nash trade. They gutted the middle of the lineup in order to acquire Nash (I am still on board with making that trade by the way). And it took trading 40 goal scorer Gaborik, who never meshed with Tortorella anyway, to get Brassard and give them 4 competent centers. And that trade is ultimately what set this team up for the cup run in 2014.

            Say what you want about the coach, we have been down this road for years so no point going there, but this is an incredibly flawed lineup. They gutted the middle of the roster by trading Stepan once Lindbergh was already gone in order to add Shatty. Anderson and Chytil are likely not to be contributors until next season so unless a trade is made for a center, this season will be fight for a wild card or miss the playoffs.

        Rich S, You and I will always see the benefits of the Physical side of NHL HOCKEY, contrary to most bloggers belief that it is no longer a physical sport, IT STILL IS!!! The Rangers are a very soft team , maybe the softest in the NHL, coupled with the fact that they are not an elite NHL team only magnifies the problem. I constantly hear the excuse, look at the Black Hawks, look at the Penguins , THEY HAVE WON MULTIPLE CUPS and are not very physical, this is very true, BUT THEY ARE/WERE IMMENSELY TALENTED TEAMS THAT DID NOT HAVE TO PLAY PHYSICAL, IF YOU TRIED TO GET NASTY WITH THEM , YOU TOOK A PENALTY , AND THEIR TALENT AND POWER PLAYS MADE YOU PAY BIG TIME. The Rangers are not an elite hockey team, coupled with their very soft European style of pond hockey play ( reflection of their coach) Well, you have what you have!!!

          But with the elite talent they and the hawks have you are correct, they would win even without the physicality…….
          But wait, didnt they make an offseason trade for ”Reaves”…..
          Good GM’s and teams know what it takes to win, apparently our doesn’t. But for the coach to accept his players going the entire game and never hitting barzal or bouv or eberle once…..WOW!!!!

    I know there would be grousing from many about the Rangers putting an AHL team on the ice and like nonsense if they blew up things and lost a boatload of games. But at least as far as this season is concetned, it would seem time to cut their losses. Trading Nash, Grabner, McDonough, Smith, Holden and even the mighty Zuccarello would bring a lot of picks to use in what is touted as a strong draft. Wishful thinking on my part, I know. Yeah they would suck for a while, but in the long run I believe that they would be much better off.

    Come one …Come all…We need a doughnut tonight! We need all the players to do the same thing last night and maybe just a little bit softer. I want to see a 10-0 score and not in favor of the Rangers.

    Put Pavelac back in net. Don’t …please don’t start Lundquist …I really don’t want him to do something stupid and get a suspension. He is the only heart on this team right now. Watching him get embarrassed again I just couldn’t stand it. And boy does he hate Crosby. It is like adding fuel to the fire. LOL

    AV this is your night. If they soft play you again …I would get the suit case ready and just don’t come back.

    I hope I am wrong. I hope they can turn it around. I just really don’t think so. If he sits Shatty…i can see this being a game. He can’t sit anyone else. Just doesn’t have the Forward depth to punish anyone besides Buch. But If we are honest with ourselves Zippy and Nash should be sitting.

    The one guy has posters and MEME’s of him inside every nhl locker room….. saying, ” If you see this guy he is as soft as he looks…ask him for a Mr. Softie ice cream.” PS with sprinkles!!!

    The other one is on the back of milk cartons and on amber alerts saying, “Looking for 42 Goal Scorer” last seen in december of 2015. Please Call AV as soon as spotted!

    If I am AV, I give everyone a fresh start. I let the first period unfold as it does. I watch the footage after the first period. From then on out ….the guys that hustled whether skilled or not get the majority of ice time. If you fought for your ice against the opposition …you get to keep playing. I don’t tell them I just do it. If you back up on Defense and let them walk right into our zone you sit. You don’t play another second. He has to feel like the team is just no showing him. It has to show up. He can’t be that blind. But if this game goes sideways boy i feel no sympathy if he keeps shoveling out the same guys doggin him.

        I doubt Hank would have faired much better in that situation. I don’t blame Pavelac. Top to bottom piss poor effort and no goalie could have saved that situation.

        So to say…. they won games on the back of the goalie is tough. It is a team effort with maybe most of the effort coming from the goalie and a few select players. But if they no showed like this one…… with all the missed assignments and blown gaps in defense….. those so called goalie wins would have ended the same way this one did.

        Point blank chances unmolested are just what they turned into ..Goals. I don’t care who you have.

          This isn’t on Pav at all.

          This is a fundamental problem with the team. Gorton/Sather, whomever is in charge better recognize it and act accordingly, meaning SELL.

    Hank reaming out Ruff after the game is significant. Hank carries enormous weight in the organization, as he should, and I doubt that Torts would have been let go without a big push from Hank. If he’s pissed off enough to create a scene like that in front of the cameras just think about what’s going on behind closed doors.

    Let’s see if the boys can respond tonight in Pittsburgh. If they recent trend of sloppy, uninspired play from anyone not wearing a mask and goalie pads continues then I would expect changes to come sooner rather than later. Its not all AV’s fault, although everyone from the FO down bears some responsibility. Regardless of whatever personnel/deployment decisions were made and whether they were justified or not, the players are the ones on the ice and are ultimately responsible for their own performance. Just changing the coach is not going to solve the many problems with this team.

    I think they need a Torts type coach again. Only to give the new players the same fundamentals as torts teams had. Something to fall back on.

    Dont get me wrong. I just think this team lacks a core play style for when things go awry. They seem to panic and not get better. The team tries to make it up in offense instead of trying to fix gushing pipe leak and solidify the defensive end. Tort’s teams just fold in on the goalie. Can’t get the puck then 5 men just collapse on your net. either it went in or the goalie stopped play.

    Not saying it is the right system just sayin it is a system.

    Random Thoughts:

    • 7-2 was not really indicative of the score. It was actually a lot worse.

    • Pavelec in the nets against the Islanders after a bye week? Very Puzzling

    • If Tavares stays and the goaltending stabilizes, the Isles are set-up to be a
    very good team for a long time

    • Advice to Rangers – SELL – Please….

    I was at the game, and it was one of the worst efforts by the Rangers in a couple of years, completely inexcusable and unacceptable!. They were completely out hustled, out classed, had no passion, and nobody stood in front of the net on the power play as most of the game. They lack skill, toughness, and can;t complete a play. Two on ones mean nothing with them. They blow it almost every time. Are they going to continue like they have been playing the last few games or will they finally make some changes? I’m beginning to think Gordon is an even bigger jerk then AV. for doing nothing. Shake this dam team up already! They are pathetic to watch and are going absolutely nowhere. They play a good game (without depending on their goalies to bail them out) only once in a while, and fool you into thinking they are good and may be able to contend, but even when they win, they usually give up way to many shots on goal. Most likely, the next game, Hank will stand on his head, and they will somehow manage to beat Pittsburgh. That,s usually the only way they win. All the shots they get on goal, are usually not that high quality shots. It will be a long time before I waste any more of my money to go to the Garden for this!

    A little over a week ago, I said that the second half of the season is when the ice gets smaller, the defenses get tougher, and we see the separation of the pretenders, from the contenders.

    After yesterday’s showing, it didn’t take long to see we are pretenders, and as the vast majority have called for, let’s have a garage sale, starting tomorrow morning!!! We have no one with anything in their collective panties, boys, not men!!!!!!!!

    Bill Parcells once said “I don’t mind if you loose, just don’t stink up the joint”.
    This team does just that, from the GM, to the Coach and Players. This coach’s system is terrible for this collections of players, and AV inability to coach and develop young players is non existent. He doesn’t hold veterans accountable for their mistakes and refuses or doesn’t know how to make in game adjustments. Never lets lines develop.This team had nothing but silent leaders and can’t play a full 60 minute game. It’s time for a rebuild because if anyone thinks this team is a contender with just a few tweaks at the deadline is nuts.

    Start with a coach that can coach and develop young players. Be sellers at the deadline and get some young fast quality players and picks. Enough of these rebuilds on the fly.

    I have been watching this team since 1964 and have seem some bad ones but never have I seen a team like this with no heart and no grit.

      AV has to show everyone what a genius he is by changing lines every second shift and benching players like Buch, but never DD. And, brilliant move not starting Hank after a weekllong rest.
