Get in here mofos.
>all these chances
nothing new to see here.
Just imagine if this team could finish. Or skate. Or defend. Or use the PP to their advantage. or didn't have useless fucks like Dan Boyle, Dan Girardi and Marc Stall on their defense.
Imagine it, lads.
This team will not make the playoffs. Vancouver is going to win, and sweep season series from the Rangers. Who is 2nd worst team? Winnipeg. Already swept season series with Rangers. By the end of January, they will be out of playoff position. I am a long time hockey fan, and this current Rangers team is one of the worst I have ever seen. They will wind up about 25th overall. And given the long term contracts they gave to shit, they will remain a cellar dweller for at least the next 5 years.
They need to waive Nash, Lundquist, Staal, and Girardi. Maybe someone will pick them up. Not that i hate Hank, but his best days are in the past, he will not win a cup in NY, and his $8.5 mill cap hit is a killer.
I think the worst thing about this is.. i'd prefer the team be straight up garbage than just outright mediocre.
If they were garbage they could justify a wholesale liquidation of the bums, keep the youngsters, get some picks and cap space.
Mediocrity is just gonna make management have aspirations of the playoffs and this team, as evidence by the games they've played with Washington, aren't a real contender this year. Fuck I hate this.
They just need to dump some of the trash and by trash I mean Boyle, probably one of Staal or Girardi is gone in the off season if they keep tanking this season. Nash is really garbage but we are probably stuck with him for the duration of his contract.
Zuccarello, Brassard are decent pieces for their price. Especially Brassard. Stepan is made of glass, seems like he has a serious injury every year. Might be better to get rid of him.
Fresh off the boat, from reddit, kid? heh I remember when I was just like you. Braindead. Lemme give you a tip so you can make it in this cyber sanctuary: never make jokes like that. You got no reputation here, you got no name, you got jackshit here. It's survival of the fittest and you ain't gonna survive long on 4chan by saying stupid jokes that your little hugbox cuntsucking reddit friends would upboat. None of that here. You don't upboat. You don't downboat. This ain't reddit, kid. This is 4chan. We have REAL intellectual discussion, something I don't think you're all that familiar with. You don't like it, you can hit the bricks on over to imgur, you daily show watching son of a bitch. I hope you don't tho. I hope you stay here and learn our ways. Things are different here, unlike any other place that the light of internet pop culture reaches. You can be anything here. Me ? heh, I'm a judge.. this place.... this place has a lot to offer... heh you'll see, kid . . . that is if you can handle it.
Yes, they have delusions of doing something in the playoffs. Which they will not be in. This is a supposed speed team which lost a lot of speed in Hagelin and St. Louis. They are easily beaten in board battles every time. This is just a disaster, and the sooner they trash it, the sooner they can start the rebuild. Getting rid of the big contracts first is essential, even if they don't get any players or draft picks in return. The high priced, older shit must go. They should get rid of everyone over 25 years old.
Wouldn't be surprised if he did get the shutout. We have no one who can score goals consistently.
You re-worded my post, but yeah, I agree. Yandle and Nash are the first that need to go, followed by Girardi and Stall.
I don't know about rewording posts, we both simply stated the facts. I have been saying this for months. Even during the 9 game winning streak, they sucked. They were the luckiest team ever. They kept getting outplayed, but somehow winning. They have used up this season's luck quota. There is not a single loser on this roster that I would miss.
>lost speed in St. Louis
But Hagelin did lead the attack on the forecheck. his speed and inspiration is definitely missed.
Take 17 shots and still can't score a goal on Miller lololol
McDonagh, and Zuccarello are the only players I would actually miss. I like Stepan, Brassard and Miller recently and I think Fast is a good piece. Nash should go but probably won't, same with Lundqvist. Maybe keep Klein also. Everything else needs to be redone.
Tht pic hurts a little lol.
Anyway they are goin to slim down goalie gear so imagine what happens to miller and other goalies. Man goalies are gonna hate when it happens next year. Like to see a shutout with the new gear
Brassard is a great player, but he is frustrating at times because he is sometimes inconsistent. But he has a ton of skill.
Still he's locked up for the next 3 seasons at 5 million dollars per year. That's actually a really good price for a 2nd line centre who will put up 60 points. They should keep him.
Same goes for Klein, they'd be stupid to trade him for the price they have him at. He's a legit top 4 getting paid 2.9 million, compared to Staal making 5.7, Girardi making 5.5 and Mcdonough making 4.7.
Actually I haven't looked at the cap numbers for awhile, I'm actually kind of shocked Staal and girardi are making that much more than Mcdonough.
And also Lundqvist hasn't been playing great lately, but the team in front of him has been playing like garbage. He showed at the start of the year he still has it. Ridiculous to even think about trading him, #1 goalies are very hard to find.
I'm just worried about the way Lundqvist seems to have lost his rebound control, he's giving up way more rebounds and they are much more dangerous. I say keep him but it makes me nervous
He's been ok, kids fast as fuck. Canucks have the time to rebuild and of it works out good for us, if not we got rid of Jensen thank fuck. The only offence he's had in the NHL all came from playing with the sedins.
>rags literally cannot beat a team of teenage Literally Whos and some broken-down old farts
This shit should be 6-2 NYR
Literally no one on this team can finish or score without tip ins or rebounds. All of them suck.
Welcome to the New York Rangers brand of Hockey: mediocrity incarnate.
Just wait, >rags will score 3 this period
Surely you jest, my Canadian friend.
You must be new to rangers hockey friendo
That would explain why we aren't scoring..
>le tip-in the team
welp. if you can't score on a wide open net there's always tip-ins
