Nasreddine has more years of coaching experience than Stevens as well. Absolutely nothing wrong about this or the Ward signing. Change is good people. Since 2003 we only won four or five playoff series, and three of them came in one year. Missed the playoffs four times in the last five years as well. All of this change was needed. Time for a new era.
You can't be serious if you think adding 1 of those 2 makes this a playoff team. It's not how the game works.
For this current squad it absolutely does. No question about it. Adding Crosby adds SO MUCH more offensive production from him and his wingers. This team would have 30-40 goals more. With Cory putting up a .925 save % theres no doubt they are a playoff team.
And lou hasnt been credible in years either. They are actually both on par when it comes to their job quality.
Look at ALL the bad signings, the terrible roster management, the horrible roster structure, all our lost assets, nothing to trade, our team is the oldest in the NHl, no speed, no skills, no good faceoffs guys, 2 head coaches!!!! the team itself is a joke and all we get is typical "status quo" non-sense and denial about what the whole world is seeing. Hes not even willing to admit that we need a rebuilt. Teams who went the right directions accepted what they are and made the right moves, lou as been in denial for 3 years now.
How in hell should we support that guy anymore? For what he did 15 years ago? Then geez lets bring back brodeur then.
And PLEASE dont tell me "hey he built a strong group of young D and got a good goaltender. Allllll the team in the nhl has something good and are way better balanced that we are. Theres no sugarcoating our situation. Were going downhill.
We know we know we know we know how you feel. You dont have to put down paragraphs about it for every thread.
Makes little sense since Lundqvist was one of the best players on the ice during most of the overtimes. The guy was amazing, only player on the Rangers who deserved to be in the Final. Without him those overtimes would be a lot shorter.
