    I don't think any cared that you weren't watching the team, it's just that you were here posting about not watching the game a lot, as if your boycott was an intriguing storyline we were supposed to be following.

    I can understand the frustration part, but I think the issue is everyone's expectations after the sell-off.

    We got rid of Nash, Holden, Grabner, and Mc D. Everyone expected us to be the worst team in the league after the deadline. Edit- Ha, I forgot Miller. He was pretty invisible leading up to the deadline.

    We added Spooner, Names, and got CK back. We were already playing without McD. You can argue that we're playing somewhat better after the deadline. Is it a sense of urgency? I don't see it. Who is suddenly playing better? Maybe Hayes, but that may be due to the addition of Spooner. We're getting outshot in every game and the goalies are keeping us in games.

    Imo, and I'm repeating myself is that there are worse teams than us and several on equal footing. It's no surprise when we beat them (and lose to the better teams).

    Rangers are not making the playoffs, and they are not getting the #1 pick, and the #1 pick isn't earth shattering to begin with. So I say just be happy for every win, hate when they lose, and let the chips fall where they may. AV is gone no matter what

    And they just locked Price in at $10.5M x 8 years loools, imagine if he declines and they are stuck with that dead weight contract. Really happy we don't have to deal with an incompetent GM like the Canadiens, Islanders, Oilers do

    We see it often with teams post deadline. They play loose and step it up. Then we all get the sense of optimism like "hey, we got something here" and they can't recapture that the following season. Examples: Remember when Dan Lacoture was a throw in when Kovalev was traded back to the Rangers and he was an awesome fourth liner/PKer and we all thought "heart and soul guy, he'll be here for the next decade." We saw it with the infamous Dvorak/Messier/Malholtra line, Todd Harvey being healthy, etc., etc. etc.

    Multiple things,
    1. Wasn’t that pre “we are gonna rebuild letter”?

    2. Not everyone is rooting against them, there are plenty still hoping for victories.

    3. It was also the way you’d come in and tell us you’re not watching.

    You got plenty of whine you need some cheese?

    1. The quality of this team before and after the letter is the same.

    2. Very true.

    3. That's different from cheering for Carolina in our GDT how, exactly?

    What I did was distasteful and I apologized. Matter of fact, I see where you were coming from now.

    Just think it's rich that some of those who were critical of me (not you) were in the "let's go Canes" section last night.

    I'm not exactly rooting against them but I don't mind them losing. It's strange, I know, but that's the way I feel. I think with every loss the young guys are still learning a lot and know what not to do if they want to win when we get a new coach and a few more younger, better offensive players in the lineup.

    Edited to add: I think this team can bounce back next year and make the playoffs and make some noise, so I'm not overly concerned with a long-term rebuild.

    I've accepted the losing. I'll never like losing. But I've accepted it.

    Yes! That's a better way to put it. I don't enjoy it but I understand it.

    I definitely don't lose sleep if they lose at this point in the season, but if I do decide to sit down and watch a game, I'm not gonna sit there and not cheer for the Rangers.

    Seems like a waste of time to me.

    I don't understand the hate either. When this board has a whipping boy they are like a pit bull on a poodle. I think he is a 3rd/4th line player that can pot 15-20 goals a year that we signed without giving up any assets. Nothing really to hate there.
