This is my third game of the season today...taking a half-day off work to take my daughter, who is off school today.  REALLY hoping the third time's the charm, because goddamn is this season off to a

Starting a n w job today so I won’t be able to watch it live. Hopefully it’ll be worth watching later or at least the highlights. LGD!

Two questions about today - I don't understand going with 5 RHD.  I get that Mueller sucks.  I get that Smith couldn't play here and I get that Greene is hurt and I get that the organization real

Scoring literally no powerplay goals, having a PK below 50% and repeatedly blowing leads is not an issue of having R-R defensive pairs.  It's the coaches, and if the analytics people have trouble figuring that out, they should go back to getting wedgies at gym class.

Repeatedly blowing leads is an issue of having R-R pairs in that that makes your team worse.  It makes them worse offensively and defensively.  That's the point I'm trying to make.  Just yelling about 'it's the coaches' doesn't say anything.  Part of it is the situations they're putting the players in.  They had R-R pairs on the PK today also.

I am positive that many teams go R-R or L-L for sustained periods of times on at least one line without the incompetence that this team shows.    I say it’s the coaches because it’s about as obvious as it gets.

Again, you're talking without knowledge.  Teams go L-L.  Teams rarely go R-R, and the results of R-R pairings have been historically worse than L-L pairings.

If this is our issue, it’s on a long fvcking list.

Analytics is a cargo cult.

I doubt you can define either analytics or a cargo cult.  But it's fun to talk about like that, certainly.  

R-R pairings were a big reason why things went so poorly today in the D zone.  It's playing players in positions they are not comfortable in and they have to make a lot of quick reads from a different part of the ice.  Carrick is not used to defending a shooter coming in from that side as Connolly was.

I used to see one every Saturday, basically all the dads at the soccer field. 
 

Oh, that’s a cargo SHORTS cult, never mind.

One of the primary jobs of a coach is to put his or her players in the best position they can to succeed. So if you are suggesting the coaching staff deserves more time, this isn’t helping that argument.

I'm not suggesting that, which is why this discussion is so asinine.  I'm saying the coaching staff didn't put players in a position to succeed and that that is bad.  I'm being told that coaching is the problem with the team.

It’s asinine to think that a coach who only managed to squeak into the playoffs once in four years on an MVP effort of Taylor Hall is ever going to figure it out.  He’s in line to have the most losses in franchise history going back to the Scouts.  

If the only thing you’re taking away from this is to not have a R-R defensive pair, you’re insane.

Fire him.  Tonight.  Have a robot coach the team for a game or two if that’s what it takes.

To those who attended:

I did not hear one single “Rangers Suck, Flyers Swallow” chant during the entire game. Altogether possible it was too far away and too few people for me to hear, but I heard nothing. 
 

Anyone hear it?
