A Snapshot Of The Rangers At This Point

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

These Rangers have looked slow and puny, perhaps because they are playing without a shred of confidence. One breakdown invariably leads to the next. Players are colliding with one another in open ice. Their defense both against the rush and in their own end has veered into malpractice territory.

Opponents who gain speed through a wide open neutral zone routinely beat retreating defensemen wide. The front of the net is wide open. There is no offensive zone possession time; no forecheck game. They appear incoherent.

more on the Ranges including Biron starts tonight...

Even a blind hog finds the acorn once in a while.  Larry Brooks has pretty much nailed what is wrong with the Rangers.

I think I know the reason - Alain Vigneault is a lousy coach and cannot make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. 

Gee, I seem to have a pig fetish today.
