    Been a Rangers fan since ‘86.

    I’ve never seen anything like this.

    Well, it looks like this will be the formula for the Rangers. Score early and often, and grab a game by the throat.

    We have come a long way from the days of the "Black and Blue" Shirts.

    We're going to have 5 20 goal scorers, none of them named Kane or Tarasenko. If Laffy gets hot we might have 6 20 goal scorers.

    I can't recall a team with this type of scoring depth ever going back to 1972 when I first started watching the Rangers.

    This is one of the, if not most talented Rangers teams we will ever see.

    All 4 forward lines are fantastic and our top 4 d man are 1st pairs on almost every NHL team

    Love your blue line,

    Norris winner, Miller is a stud in the making and I am a big big Trouba fan.

    Trouba gets a lot of shit from Rangers fans but he’s been really good recently.

    Miller - Trouba has been their best pair since Miller came back from suspension.

    Yeah I'm no Ranger fan so I can appreciate his Scott Stevens like approach to the game, no nonsense and keep your head up when he's on the ice. Not a lot of players like him still in the game. Got to see the Rangers when they came to Vegas this year and they smashed Vegas. Obviously big games for NY

    As long as the same defensemen are allowed to remain out of position without any repercussions, this will be a short post season.

    The lack of depth in this defensive corps is appaling.

    That goal wasn’t on Trouba. Miller pinched down too hard and left the man open in front of the net.

    Miller got demoted to 3rd pair for the rest of the game after he was partly responsible for 2 goals in 49 seconds. This is becoming a thing with him. One or two big mistakes a game that cost the Rangers.

    Not sure how to work that out but GG is doing to the only thing a player's coach can do and demoting him at the moment.

    OK, let's discuss this. Here is the official NHL Highlights of last nights game. The play that leads to the goal starts at 6:25:



    Explain to me: Accepting that Miller was already out of position, which Trouba had plenty of time to see, what possible reason did Jacob Trouba have to chase Jespar Fast BEHIND THE NET, thus leaving the slot completely open?
