    Can you imagine the tire fire that would the this team if Adam Fox hadn't forced his way through 2 countries and 2 teams just to play for the Rangers? Lindgren wouldn't look this good. Right now we'd have Jacob "caveman" Trouba with KAM who is struggling at the moment as the top pairing. Then a buffet of highly under performing top forward picks. We'd be in line for another top 5 pick with no end in sight to the struggles of what is supposed to be our future championship core.

    Without Fox, more people would be calling for this coach to be fired.

    I don't think there are more. The only people left defending Quinn are the people defending him just to have a gimmick.

    Not surprised that you still don't understand my stance even though I have told you directly, multiple times.

    Here it is for at least the third time:

    In most cases, there is little difference between coaches. Maybe the third time will stick in your sometimes analytically based thoughts.

    Anyway, I understand that when asked direct questions you often attack when you can't answer. I should be used to it, by now.

    I do admit that I get a kick out of it when you can't answer, though.

    While I don't agree with the move, Blackwell is putting up points at double the rate of Kakko. And they do need to score more.

    Some people complaining that the youth isn't improving under Quinn while pounding the turf about how improved Kakko is.

    Pretzels for everyone.

    It's not that I don't get it. I just don't care.

    It's glorified shitposting at this point.

    Panarin and Fox are carrying the team.

    Edit: and shesterkin seems to be the real deal.

    And that we lost some early games and haven't been able to catch up, and that we are much better than everyone thought we'd be.

    The first post sounded negative this post sounded positive.

    I see it as a positive. Hopefully next season we get some more help but it's nice to have two exceptional players on our team that can carry what everyone thought should be a bottom feeder team into somewhat being in the playoff picture. Throw in some better coaching and we can really start cooking.

    I'm not sure anyone thought we'd be a bottom feeder. I think the most pessimistic people thought we'd be where we are now.

    Well, in the podcast they said we should have still been one of the worst teams in the league.

    True, but when an advocate of analytics champions eye-test opinions and dismisses other opinions, it's gonna happen.

    I thought and had said they would be contending for the division lead.....we simply have too much talent on this club for anything less but of course....who could have predicted how things started out with Mika /Covid-Tony saga...injuries....Panarin /Siberia issues ....Covid again....no club could survive that plus playing 4-5 guys that don't actually contribute very much . Taken all that into consideration....we might have over achieved so far . It is frustrating though watching big guys that play soft when we REALLY could use some big guy type of play every game or at least at certain points in a game that needs a redirection of sorts .

    For me, a guy like Kreider who is streaky in a lot of ways, could double his value by occasionally throwing his weight around. Not saying he needs to go all predator head hunter. Just an occasional strong word or meaningful hit. Guys like Kreider could give a lineup a little extra confidence. But obviously a tiger doesn’t change his stripes.

    A completely different team w/o him. Not saying we WANT to be w/o him, but yeah. Almost as if they forget about how they "should play" as a full "team", and when he is on the ice its almost as if they are expecting his greatness, and become more like a consensus "fan", watching, observing and wanting to play UP to his level, which is obviously impossible to accomplish.
    Only one other player can control the game like he does, maybe 2 on our Rangers. Dont have the 3rd anymore. But, I digress. Thats not allowed.

    Habit? Really? A habit? Just because it has happened a little more often than we woukd like, but how about NOT playing possum? How about defending better or getting the puck out of the zone better?
    Only gave up the 2 with 29 shots. Not exactly softies. How about scoring more than 2 goals? Against Buffalo? Wow.

    I thought we’d make the playoffs and it looks like we probably would have if we hadn’t lost panarin and Shesterkin for the time that we did
