Teams like the Islanders are bad for the game.
What a letdown after 4 months. That is probably 99% of the frustration.
*whispers* Rangers were much better than the Islanders tonight and they'll be fine vs Carolina on Saturday even if they play like this. ADA needs to be better but that's about it.
slight exageration, but it felt they didn't win a single board battle. And they never ever bothered to get inside in the offense zone. Team was out of sync offensively and they didnt' bother to make up for it by grinding and crashing the net and winning board battles. Just an exhibition game but they have no chance in the playoffs if they can't generate any lunch pail goes or point shots with screens. Again, just an exhibition but woudl have been nice to see a little more.
Well the 2nd half of that game was pretty bad but not going to go nuts over it. KZB was pretty f***ing invisible from the start though.
This game was fine until the Islanders scored then played like they were the peak DPE Devils
I’ll add tony and CK to that list. Mika Panarin CK Tony we’re total no shows tonight
This was just gross hockey to watch. So boring.
10 shots in the last 2 periods, pathetic.
Ada was downright bad tonight. He couldn't make a clean pass to save his life.
My favorite moment was Fast walking into the slot, not shooting, and skating out of the slot.
That was the Geico hot take of the game, brought to you by Verizon.
Panarin was misplaying the puck all game long.
What is going on with camera work, anybody was getting annoyed with it?
Nah I am worried. Just like the people who think preseason games don't matter, they're not playing 100%, all these excuses. Sorry, but they only have 1 exhibition game, then 2 full days off. Then a noon time game, this isn't much time to get up to speed. If they're half-assing it, it's a bad look.
Bad game but I know people like Zib and Panarin will find another gear.
What I saw from Chytil and Kakko was encouraging. And Fox to nobody’s surprise.
Kreider has mental issues.
I mean no overreactions but I really hated how we lost every loose puck battle and EVERY board battle.
2 shots total from Panerin and zibby all night. Whispering doesn't make it true. Rangers were bad tonight. How relevant that is to saturday is unknown.
This. First half of the game was fine. Kakko looked much more confident. Chytil looked strong. Defense as a team was better than I expected for the first game. Hank played well. KZB line was lacking, but Buch was engaged. Fast looked good. Last period the Islanders played non-hockey, literally prime 90s Devils style. Total snooze fest. I’m not worried, there was nothing glaringly poor and plenty to be satisfied with. It’s a preseason game.
Was unreal. How often do you get that look on your forehand and just skate directly to the boards. Amazing
That's why I 100% believe he'd be a terrible captain. He's played, what, 6?7?8? seasons now, he can't figure out how to play ALL THE TIME, not just sometimes, or on special teams.
*He was invisible this game, as was half the team. But for a supposed leader on the team, idk, throw a hit or something?
NYI play the most boring sludge hockey in the league. Take this bullshit outta the game please.
Buddy if you’re not spewing hot takes right now, are you even living?
No post game thread?
I see we're wasting no time
