    If AV is brought back, then I will not be renewing my package. I mean that. He's that unbearable.

    I hate working in absolutes, but he's taken a team capable of winning a SC (with all of its warts) and brought them to a level of playing that requires such a small margin of error.

    It's mind boggling to me that coaches such as AV, Ruff, Hitchcock, Boudreau, etc. keep getting cycled across talented teams because of their winning records. They're products of having very talented players. These guys have cost those organizations multiple Cups due to their inability to actually, you know, coach. AV is one those guys.

    He isn't going anywhere, not yet at least.

    He should have been fired after they got shut out in back to back home games in 2015. I know that team had a bunch of injuries but he had enough to win that series and coached the team out of a second consecutive finals appearance.

    I saw this coming even while the team was ripping through their opponents en route to a presidents trophy. Bad coaching is bad coaching, your roster and goalie can only protect your incompetence for so long.

    Yeah, when they gave him that extension mid-season it cemented him being here regardless of what happens this post season, even if they go out in 5 lifeless games, again.

    I'm almost at the point where I'm hoping they pull Bourque and trade Hank to a team with a real chance of winning because while I'll always root for the Rangers, watching Lundqvist these past 11 years has been an absolute joy and there is nobody in the league who deserves to have his name on the Cup more than him and it's pretty clear it won't be as a Ranger.

    Last 10 home playoff wins for the Rangers have been one-goal games. This team.

    Yeah baby. Glad I don't have to have nightmares about Kreider whiffing on the open net.

    Yes very in this series. He was really good last night.. Dunno why but the more you hit him and bang him around, the better he seems to play. I honestly think run and gun, track meet hockey does not really play to his strengths. He is not young enough or fleet footed enough to be a force when pond hockey is the name of the game..

    But waffle it down when there is very little space and time, and the game is physical to the point of crossing the line, and I think that's more his game..
    I used to think I was crazy... Now I am sure of it..

    The hockey gods smiled on him though, without that pass being tipped in OT by Emelin, it probably does not wind up on Zibs stick for the winner.

    I feel like the entire team has been doing this the whole series. None of them were as egregious as that one though.

    AV blew game two but he has his best forward lines out there right now. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they lose this series, but they've done more than I expected them to.

    If they can wrap this up, I expect them to make it to the ECF. Ottawa is not that good and Boston is ultra banged up.

    Getting WC1 was the best move for them. Let the Metro big shots beat each other up and we can go through the crappy Atlantic. Hopefully Pittsburgh loses next round to whoever they play.

    Never for a second did I doubt this team

    No I didn't think they had a prayer in this series, very glad to be wrong.

    Only because of a late empty netter, though.

    Where was that empty netter in game 2 when the Rangers desperately needed it?
