Going to have to start Georgie against them in the next 2.

The whole team was a step slow tonight.  We are not quite at that level unfortunately

Just deleted by FB account 2 weeks ago.  Never had Twitter etc.  This page is the most social media I’ll do.  Just switched search engines to duck duck go as well.   

I agree we are an impressive team at times.  Just ask the Islanders after this recent two game stretch.  My concern and frustration comes from the inconsistency and lack of attention to detail on some

Might want to look into https://brave.com/ I use that browser with duck duck go. It blocks ads and tracking, but unfortunately if you are using Android or Apple they are probably getting your data any

The day the season died.

We are not ready. That much is obvious from the men vs. boys game last night.  I get it that everyone deserves a stinker every now and again but we used up all of our stinkers earlier in the year.  We needed to run the table pretty much.  Last night a team built for the post season put us in our place.  It was a stark and sobering experience to watch that game last night.

It is an odd year for a million different reasons and we were hit with injuries and some strange Russian happenings but it is the 2nd year in a row where it seemed like it took the coach about half a season before he managed to get the team going.  Maybe Quinn gets a Mulligan for this season but if so it is his last one.

There is a history in pro sports of bringing in a coach for the beginning of a rebuild but replacing him with an established coach once a rebuilding project turns into a contender.  Personally I think we may be at that point right now.

We need to be a little tougher physically and kids need to be allowed to grow up.  We need additional blue line presence even as we are happy with what Miller and Fox have been doing.  The Tony D'Angelo thing certainly did not help.

This part is going to happen, we have very good defensive prospects.

Hopefully the kids coming up can make the adjustment as well as Miller and Fox did.

It is a good time to get a look.  All we can do is win the games in front of us and hope someone else slips badly but in reality it is all about next year at this point

Well if the loss to the icelanders didn’t seal the deal than the one last night did. Two losses in a row is back breaking. At least they gave us something to be excited about this season because it was starting to look like another 2018 or 2019 and those seasons SUCKED.

What do you think happens with DeAngelo?

The team has said he has played his last game as a Ranger.  It does not seem like there is any market for him at all even if the rangers eat a bunch of salary.  I think he gets released and that will be that.

<edited to add>

For what it is worth he already had some kind of baggage with his previous teams (it never was clear) even before he came to the Rangers.  At this point he is going to find it very difficult to rehabilitate his NHL career,

Yea , I know his Ranger career is done, crazy to think he has so much baggage, that we don’t know what it is,that a player of his caliber won’t get another shot

Its not like he has a known drug habit or criminal activities. He must really just be terrible in the room

Brendan Schneider is a feisty defensive prospect, he will be a fan favorite if he makes the team.

Six games left. All against teams above us in the division.

We still need help but the next two games we have the chance to help ourselves against one of the two teams it is still possible to catch.

Last time we played the Islanders it was men vs. boys.  This is the last chance coming up for us.  Anything less than four points in regulation is a failure.  Even if we sweep both we will still need help.
