Brilliant bring a guy in play him minimal dump him and A) bring someone up that you chose Cracknell over to begin with, or B) bring in another pickup double mint can decide he doesn’t like after 2 minutes.

A little tarnish on the entire group especially the coach. Not sure what bringing a guy in and not giving him a chance accomplishes.

Now, I know we are all frustrated with this team from the bottom up. But tarnish the brass due to the Cracknell experiment? You guys are giving too much heed to a situation that is extremely minor.

Its not a bad waive, but it is a waive that never should have happened to begin with. The Rangers are grasping at straws at this point.

It really is time to remove AV from the formula the players are not responding and he seems to not know what players he should play.

I am tired of this.

The Cracknell experiment on the surface, is the least of their worries. Claim a guy off waivers, waive him 5 games later. My main issues are that they tried this instead of solving real issues, and to Rranger's point, trying it without committing to it. I knew it would come to this, I just had no idea it would come this soon.

The fact that they tried this, and now are un-trying it, signals huge problems to me in the organization -

1) a failure in larger strategy (fixing center depth, as opposed to bringing in a 32 year old journeyman winger),
2) a failure in pro scouting (not recognizing Cracknell's limited ability),
3) a failure in communication with the farm (assuming a kid is called up, why was this not done sooner? Did the kid develop into being ready for the NHL in the past week?)
4) a failure in communication between upper management and coaching

Still don't know why they didn't just call up Nieves or Lettierri a week ago, and why exactly we had to go through all this.

at what point do they realize where/who the problem is? The guy who dresses 7 defensemen in almost half of the games so far?

Call me a conspiracy theorist but ....

Cracknell was claimed probably on the basis of Ruff's recommendation. He played for Ruff in Dallas. Cracknell is NOT an AV type player, yet Gorton picked him up.

AV clearly had no intention of ever using Cracknell. He gave him a brief look one game on the 4th line, then benched him in the 3rd period and scratched him every game thereafter. AV is clearly throwing a tantrum by dressing 7 D and only 11 forwards every game, as an "F-U" to Gorton.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a power struggle going on here and the players are aware of it. Seriously, who claims a player only to release him a week later?

Yep...I said something similar the other day...Like is AV trying to tell Gorton something with the 11/7?

#FireAV


I am sure there is some truth to this. There is definitely a power struggle going on... Gorton gets Cracknell for Ruff, AV refuses to use him. It can only end one way, because AV isn't going to fire Gorton after all this.

But before I go and celebrate #FireAV there's the question of who replaces him. Ruff, as I have pointed out, is not a good coach. Plus he was brought in to replace Beukeboom as our defensive coach, and we are at the bottom of the league in almost all defensive and PK categories. So why promote a guy who hasn't even done the job he was brought in to do?

We also have Arniel who is an AV guy, but his head coaching record is shorter (and worse) than Ruff's.

So firing AV may be cathartic but it will only be the first of many steps needed to rehabilitate the state of this team.

I have given Gorton a pass for the most part, his tenure has been overall productive. I haven't agreed with every individual move, but I also felt the organization was moving in the right direction. Until this offseason that is, when he tried to "rebuild on the fly" and is accomplishing neither goal.

I don't expect a miracle to pull us out of this nightmare October but it sure would be nice if there was a little more semblance of a plan and a strategy. At this point they are literally making it up as they go along.

Seems like the only sensible thing to do is get rid of AV.... The team needs a different direction. We've had the best 7-8 years as Ranger fans minus not winning a cup, but had we won a cup or two over these past 8 years, we would accept these times as, this is what happens after so many good years.

Last year, or the last couple of years we've had really good starts because some players had good starts, this year, out of the 6 losses, 4 we could've easily won. AV has lost this team... they need a change... messing with players, without switching coaches is senseless... if after a new coach things don't work then you can look at Gorton... but then again Dolan runs this team, so all logic is lost.

If Kreider is moved before AV... That would piss me off. Lets see how these guys (Hayes-Miller-Kreider) perform under new direction before you ship them out.

C














I also do not want a Kreider, Miller ect traded to try for a spark. If double mint can’t get them going, then he should get going all the way out of New York.
