Might be the treatment from the coach.
This is turning out to be a major issue for us. Both teams look like absolute crap and it's pumping our chances of a couple of spots higher.
Noooo stay away from the light! The next coach will do just fine with Spoon & Hayes having obvious chemistry, as well as how obvious his meshing with the rest of the team is. **** AV
It would be just like the nhl.
Positive thoughts but they both look dead in the water.
They both are. Only way they catch us is if we go 2-10. and vancouver may not score any more goals this season. Garbage.
Rangers don’t dare Win a game from here on out to have a chance. Edmonton seems to be snapping out of it so that helps.
I would be ok with that Except for april 3rd of course. Yes gotta give edmonton some credit they do seem to be playing with some pride and they have the talent to make it interesting regarding passing us.
Still not an NHL player right?
Buffalo is also horribly managed... just like Edmonton
The management of the organization declared rebuilding and made steps to get more picks. Needless to say, they want high picks. But...
The youngsters who are given a sudden chance to play in the NHL instead of minor leagues want to use it and try to play as good as they can. The newcomers from other teams want to get better contracts. AV doesn't want to worsen his stats as a head coach.
So the management probably hopes that the team will lose but on the bench there aren't many people with similar intentions. Thus we are facing one more win!
I know we're expecting the worst from the draft lottery, but, the only way the Rangers drop three spots is if three teams behind the Rangers, all of which have a worse probability of doing so, all win the lottery and move up.
Yeah I don’t see this team falling to the 1-5 slot without help from the lottery. All of the other bad teams have worse rosters. You know Henrik wants 30 wins, and Gorjesus has been solid.
They thought they were good when Price carried them for a couple years so they went all in.. and they also have made some horrible trades. And have a weird affection for French Canadian guys
The Rangers will probably find a way to go .500 the rest of the way. The kids and younger guys are hungry and probably feel like they're playing for jobs next season. Our goalies have been really good, too, which is the biggest factor. I also want a high pick but if the kids we have are building confidence and developing their games for the future, that's also a good thing.
Waiting for more reports on ADA
He has had that look since he got here. Even if he scores, he usually has that look.
Vesey has the 4th highest goal-scoring totals over this season and last season for the Rangers. He has outscored Zuccarello.
Over that same timeframe, at even-strength, he has 6 more goals than Zibanejad, 3 more goals than Zuccarello, and 10 more goals than Buchnevich.
I think .500 is asking a lot. They've been winning games lately because of their goalie being ridiculous or the opponents goalie being horrible (or what ever Darling was last night.) I think they've played 1 good game since the TDL and that was the one in Florida.
Yeah for sure, definitely possible. My point was more that the Rangers are going to win more games than people want because of the fact the guys are still playing hard and the goalies are playing well. Who knows, "Win 30 for Hank" could become a thing for them that propels them to those five or six wins.
Thing is, their wins recently have all come v. pretty bad teams with the best being Calgary who’s a non playoff team. Out of the 12 games left, they still have 8 v. teams in playoff spots (TBL, PHI x 2, WSH x 2, NJD, PIT, and CBJ), and a game in Brooklyn where they literally have not won a game in. I only see Carolina (which is on the second end of a back to back too after travel) and Buffalo as the only two games where I go “wow they should probably win this one.” Not to say they won’t go 500 or pull out points but it’s a pretty brutal schedule.
It is brutal, no doubt. But as everyone has said we've been winning games while being outplayed. No reason to think we can't pull out a couple like that against some better teams.
Again, I'm just saying, I know everyone is hoping we win like 2 games the rest of the way. I don't see it. We'll luck our way into a few, goalies will steal one or two, and we may even look legitimately good and win a game. I think they win another 5 games.
Man, this team can't even properly suck after trading away 1/2 of its best players.
The only problem is they seem to give up copious shots against [at least 50] when Hank plays.
