Don't know how you blame Ruff for the amount of chances we give up. It's a very young team with two stiffs on defense (Staal and Smith). The forwards have to held accountable too. Look at Chytil's giveaway last night. Inexperience. If anything, Ruff deserves credit for the amount of offense that comes from our defense. He's always been a proponent of defensemen that join the rush and help create chances. He's let talented players like Fox and TonyD loose instead of holding them back.

That's part of the problem. He should be putting defense first with young players. Not offense. The natural talent of some of the forwards on this team will games if you keep the puck out of your net. During this streak the goalies have basically stood on their heads. It's rare to see your goalies do that this long. Eventually, it comes crashing down. You can't keep giving up these chances. It's happened almost all season.

Its the National Hockey League. Other teams get chances. Look how many bell ringers Price made. Quinn, Ruff, and the other Assistants have done a magnificent f'ing job. You probably want them fired. They are not going anywhere, this is who the Rangers are NOW, they have played their azzes of to get there. The last couple games your starting to see some real good play coming from the lines three and four, and Chytil's line is really coming on, and is soon going to be contributing offense on a more regular basis. Its called gelling after you put the work in as the season develops, and its not some fluke, it's because of great coaching.

Exactly. The youngest team in the league also happens to be the best (or second best) team in the league since January 7th. Give credit to where it's due. Sure they are talented young players, but they are playing and winning as a team. Who has them playing as a team?

Ruff, please. The defense is still crap. The amount of high quality chances they give up is mind boggling. Right now the goaltending and offense is saving their asses almost every night.


If you're going to blame Ruff for the amount of chances they give up, then you have to credit him for the rapid development of Fox, Lindgren and D'Angelo. Of course, that's if you're gonna be objective about it.

In the last two games, against the Isles and Habs, the third and fourth lines have been huge. They've added goals, turned momentum around with strong forechecking and getting chances, and they've defensively responsible for the most part. But as far as this discussion is concerned, the Rangers don't win those games without the offense contributed by Fox and D'Angelo. To say that they shouldn't be allowed to play their game and contribute offensively until they become shutdown defensemen is silly.

Let's also not overlook the job Quinn, Ruff and the other coaches have done with the special teams. Both the PP and the PK have dramatically improved from earlier this season. Since January 1st the PP is among the top 5 in the league and #6 overall right now.

Oh, and one last thing to really trigger some folks: Smith played a great game last night.

Well said!!!!


Even Staal has had some good games lately. Amazing what a player can accomplish under the right circumstances. AV can turn a d-man to trash in an instant.

Nonsense. Take off the homer glasses. The Rangers have been among the worst teams in hockey allowing shots against. Usually a good amount of scoring chances each games. If you can't admit that, you aren't able to be objective on your team.

When Quinn wins Coach of the Year, please post video of your head exploding.
