No, Girardi is just that bad.  If Tampa keeps making their shots, the Rangers are finished, because they are not going to stop Kucherov-Johnson-Palat - that line gets a scoring chance almost every time they're on the ice.

 

And if they get a handle on that line, it's probably at the expensive of Stamkos/Killorn line, and vice versa. They don't seem to have enough to handle the depth Tampa is throwing at them.

 

Looking at their 4 lines right now, their forward depth is actually kind of amazing and underrated. They're every bit as dangerous as Anaheim or Chicago.

Zajac is a 2nd line, 3rd line center paid like a superstar 1st line center. I hope he sends a huge Christmas present every year to Parise and Kovalchuk. Because their play on the ice and abrupt exit made Zajac's worth skyrocket ridiculously. 

 

The same could be said for like 90% of good centers (not superstars like D84 mentioned) around the league. Zajac's numbers say more about how horribly the team's been set up than about him being a "not good" player.

 

Zajac makes very slightly above average in my opinion, but just so slight that it will appear average after this or next offseason when deals are struck. 

 

I'd (still) say Zajac is a little better overall player than Rangers' Derrick Brassard and so it makes sense he's making a little bit more money. Put Zajac with Rick Nash (in this year's form) and you'll see similar numbers, or better. Nothing about Zajac's play tells me otherwise. We're a BAD team.

I'm still convinced every Rangers defenseman is significantly injured, outside of Staal.

Ugh... Our tax dollars go to fund circuses like this, guys... It makes me sick.

Hopefully Coleman and Pietila can pull a Kreider and stick with the team right after college.

 

I have a feeling Matteau is our Kreider, the way he was playing with us the last few weeks of the season. He looked fast, tough, and dangerous.
