    its random... just an ad thing they invented said when people useta say " MAN O man!" they just added the ishewitz.

    so, "what a win!" becomes " man! oh, man!" becomes " man o manischwitz!"

    Another garbage game, but this time, that was the series. I don’t see them winning a single game, let alone two in a row.

    The Panthers are the better team.

    Trouba’s really been atrocious in the playoffs.

    Sadly think we are cooked here. Hope i am wrong but this team is only looking for perfect plays and not gritting it out on every line

    The Rangers got disemboweled by the Panthers. Not even close without Igor.

    According to the "experts" calling WFAN, all the Rangers need to do is cut Artemi Panarin, and they will win multiple cups.

    Adam Fox had 8 points for the entire 2024 playoffs. To put that in perspective, Jeff Beukeboom had 6 points in the 1994 Playoff run.

    Fox was pretty clearly hurt. Miller and Trouba played like dogshit, what's their excuse?

    Please note: My post was not an attack on Adam Fox in any way. It just shows the importance of offensive contribution from the Blue Line.

    Rangers need to add a couple big physical forwards to their top lines. They got crushed in shots on goal all playoff because they couldn’t win puck battles for sustained offensive zone time.

    Once upon a time, there existed this thing called a "Checking Line". I miss having one of them.

    There are three flavors of defensemen in hockey:

    A) Offensive
    B) Defensive
    C) Physical/Checker

    Adam Fox is A.
    Braden Schneider is B.

    I used to think that K'andre Miller was B, but he played about the worst defense I ever saw in the Florida Series. I am tired of making excuses for him because of his athletic gifts. I think he is good trade bait.

    Ryan Lindgren WANTS to be C, but he is too small and too fragile. I am sick and tired of him injuring himself during games and sitting out 15 mins of game time only to "miraculously" return. He needs to go.

    Jacob Trouba also WANTS to be C, but he is far too reckless, and basically has the penalty box as an alternate Amazon mailing address. He needs to go, which is a shame because early in the season, he played better than I ever saw him play.

    Eric Gustoffson is none of the above. He just takes space. The fact that he runs the second power play from the point is an indictment of how little depth the Rangers defense has. Would anyone even notice if he was gone?

    Kappo Kaako extended one year.

    They are going to roll the same team back.

    Not Rangers related but here are the new Utah colors. I like them.
