    We're supposed to be a bad team. We've got a young team and some vets who have little to no value around the league, yet somehow we are finding ways to win. Lundqvist is supposed to be in decline.

    We're in a rebuild and this team can't even do that right.

    It’s a decent team under excellent coaching.

    Just because we have some momentum does not mean we are a good team.

    We gave up 40+ shots. Like clockwork, Hank is bailing the team out.

    Contrary to popular opinions:

    I enjoy the coaching staff.
    I am glad Jimmy Vesey is having success. He works his ass off.
    We are still a bottom-5 team.

    The coach has turned this team around. I wonder what he could have done when Marty and Richards were here.

    Coaching wasn't an issue in 2014

    I don't know about "good", but we're not, and should never have been considered, a bottom-feeding team.

    6th last while other teams have games in hand... not exactly a good start.

    I don't think we're good. Seems like a bump of that poorly-worded thread about being better than the consensus opinion would have been just fine.

    If this is supposed to be the annual "This is a Bad Hockey Team" thread, but in reverse, then okay, I get it.

    They're essentially 2 games under .500.

    They work hard, but they aren't good.

    The inverse of the the classic "This is a bad hockey team" threads.

    I've waited for this for far too long.

    We only have 3 non shootout wins on the season, thats second worst in the league behind Florida. So no this is not a good hockey team

    I don't think we're a good team but I don't think we're necessarily going to be a terrible team. By all rights we should have lost tonight but there may have been a couple other games we could have or should have won--the Calgary game comes to mind. The Rangers were the rested team here and yet we were pinned in our end for a major portion of tonight's game. Henrik stole it. The other thing is Buffalo has a couple elite talents but overall they're not all that great either. Their sum of parts underachieves a bit and when our sum of parts overachieves and/or our goalie stands on his head we have a real chance to beat them.

    If it wasn't for this wonderful man we would lose every game.

    Thread should read, "This is a good hockey team" or "This is a good hockey club".

    There aren’t really many bad teams in the NHL anymore.
