The Dregs

I have been referring to the weak teams that we were beating as the dregs. Guess what folks? We, the New York Rangers, are the dregs. How else to explain the last four losses. We are now one point ahead of 13th place Tampa Bay and with a tough three game road trip coming up there seems to be no end in sight. Right now the Dregs, er the Rangers, would be hardpressed to beat a good AHL team.

What we all feared has happened. Henrik Lundqvist is a human and he is starting to collapse. We have a backup goalie but he is in Hartford. We got a replacement for him and then we sent him back and got another backup. What difference does it make to have these backups if they are going to spend their time shuttling back and forth to Hartford or sitting on the bench?

Of course our coach has as much love for the bench as he has hate for the sports writers and the fans. He needs a Dale Carnegie course. Last night it was Redden, again, who spent most of the game on the bench. Now I have no love for Redden, but if making mistakes that lead to goals is a criteria for the bench then it is hard for me to fathom any Ranger playing more than a few minutes a game.

However, the main and most serious problem lies with my buddy, the Stealth GM. It is he who put together this monstrocity of a team. It is he who continues to draft Lady Byngers for the future. It is he who has constantly spent free agency money on the wrong guy. Remember, signing Marek Malik when Brendan Witt was available? It is he who shies away from the press and in essence, the fans. Yes sir. It's time for the Stealth to go back to Edmonton on a one way ticket.

We are the Dregs!

    Can you renegotiate contracts in the NHL like the NFL?

    Can't wait for Olympic hockey after watching these, let's face it, losers...

    No heart, or pride in these players (or management!) except for a few...
