WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON

Initial Creation Date: May 5, 2021
Published: May 5 at 7:07
Team: 2020-21 New York Rangers
Team Explanation
I really don't know how to articulate my thoughts.

It seems Davidson and Gorton weren't in agreement with yesterday's statement, which was 100% accurate, so it would make sense to see the organization being frustrated with them. After all, I'd want the people running my Hockey Operations department to stick up for my players. Hell, if I was Panarin or Buchnevich, I'd want Gorton and Davidson to stick up for myself, which they didn't seem to have done.

On the other hand, they seems relatively patient with the rebuild and focused on the long term plan. If Dolan fired them because he wants to win in the next season or two, then he's in for (likely) a disappointment, because our younger players will need to learn and grow as players before we win a cup.

All in all, I HOPE with every fiber or my Rangers fan being that Drury is up to the task. I hope he'll be a good GM and I hope he has balls, because he'll need those if he's to work with a control freak like Dolan. I hope Drury doesn't become a «yes man», cause if he does, we're likely f**ked for YEARS to come.

    Dolan seems impatient. They were on the path of one of the best rebuilds I've seen. Hope Drury doesn't rush it

    Exactly to my point.

    I'm sending many positive vibes to Drury, I hope he does a good job

    Yeah I don’t think this is the end of it for the night. At this point we’ve got nothing to lose and nothing will surprise me now.

    Barron had a chance. Would’ve been insane and probably started a bench clearing brawl.

    It makes sense - Wilson doesn’t care if players come after him, but maybe he’ll think twice about doing something dirty if he knows that one of his teammates will get seriously hurt.

    I've said before,,,,run the Washington non fighting stars. The Washington teammates will tell Wilson to pull back. Heck the Rangers have nothing to lose this season.

    I like the statement made the the Rangers about the competence of Parros.

    The Gorton firing. I like the Rangers prospects, but geez a lot of it has come at the expense of not making the playoffs. Look at the buyout money that Rangers have, which cuts down on their ability to "play" to the full cap. Seems like Gorton was a poor hockey evaluator on the NHL level. Yep, his time was up.

    It has nothing to do with with a potential playoff series. I honestlly wouldn’t mind the isles losing in the 1st round so maybe trotz gets fired.

    Even as a caps fan I’m sure you know that Wilson is one of the few guys in the league that intentionally look to injure players. I’m sure he’d think twice if he knew his antics would result in a concussion for one of his teammates.

    I warned islanders fans about him. He loves old Ballbags and hates to play youth. Stephenson Schmidt Bura are gone bc of him. Played mike Weber over Schmidt.

    Wilson plays on the line but Capitals are built for this type of hockey. If you think he’s bad now imagine what he does of you hurt a guy. He beat Corburn? Bc he ripped Kuzy jersey off. He’s an enforcer that has great offensive upside

    I'm aware, I know all about trotz.

    Wilson crosses the line more often than not. Eventually his antics will come to an end (not his physical style, just the head hunting and intent to injure) if opposing teams players use the "eye for an eye" approach. Rangers should go head hunting on guys like Backstrom ,Carlson, - run over vanicek . @palhal is right, eventually his teammates will tell him to pull back if every time Wilson goes for a dirty hit , one of his teammates gets taken out of the game because of an equally dirty hit.

    Buch running around swinging his stick and cross checking guys heads. Lmfao. Gotta love it. Where is the overreactions from all the fans.? Using your stick as a weapon has to be upsetting right?

    "Mantha has to be more responsible for where he puts his face "- George Parros

    If player safety would have done the right thing and suspended Wilson for a while, then this wouldn't have happened. It's not enough though, rangers should be looking to do more damage. Whatever it takes to embarrass the league and put an end to Wilson's reckless ways.

    Irony is Mantha was willing to fight and use his fists. I’m not mad Buch is mad but at least fight him after that bull. Lol Buch is such a (()) running around using his stick. I love it. I hope he doesn’t get suspended just makes me laugh that Buch acts of violence are now justifiable. Even you are looking for over the top violence. Just funny to me and quite ironic 😂

    I know you get what my point is - if enough caps players get hurt then Wilson will stop trying to intentionally concuss players. Right now Wilson knows if he does something dirty he'll get a 5k fine and someone who isn't as good of a fighter will challenge him - so he keeps crossing the line because there are minimal consequences - but if every time he injured a player , one of his teammates got taken out from a dirty hit he would change the way he plays.

    I doubt he’ll change no matter what. It’s his game and that’s how he plays it.

    Every single hockey fan outside of WSH is laughing about this comment. Do you really think anyone is giving WSH any sympathy? They get what they deserve at this point .Someone could Matt Cooke a WSH player and everyone would say karma. That isn't on everyone else that's on the caps.

    Suspending him wasn't gong to stop it, and the NHL didn't want it to stop. Are you kidding me, hell they were hoping it would be worse. Drive ratings etc...
    One thing I know about the supposed DOPS is that they don't care. Ratings over people. What it boils down to in the end is the rangers gave the wrong response. They gave the NHL exactly what it wanted for encouraging this crap. They should have never dropped gloves all over the ice. It's highlight reel stuff, they sit around and go...oh old school hockey 143 minutes in the box ..blah blah blah.
    If they wanted to send a message they should have just went out, knee on knee a few guys, run the goalie and been done with it.
    But instead they just went out there to boost ratings.

    The funny thing is I don’t expect anyone to “feel bad” for the Capitals. They understand it’s a mans sport and they built a team for this exact situation. You sound like a crazy ex girlfriend that recently found out her bf banged her best friend and you are going full blown clown mode. Lol it’s embarrassing you need to come back down to the earth lol. Just love the bitter irony of you. You claim to dislike Wilson bc of his violence but are rock hard to see some violence lol. You are quite the paradox

    You sure got some fantasies there.
    I have said the same thing I have always said about Wilson, he's a dirty player. Period.
    If anything I find it funny that rangers fans are just NOW irate at the asshate. Like they shouldn't have been this way freaking years ago.
    And you do want people to feel bad. your "oh but everyone else does........." it's just so sad. You remind me of the mom on TV "oh my baby wouldn't ever do anything, they never harmed no one, they are just an average good kid"
    Meanwhile they are shooting up the neighborhood and killing 7 year old kids.
    Talk about embarrassing. Make sure you put on the extra big red nose bozo.

    As for the Irony, when that's how you play, don't thing anyone is having pity for you when you get it back.
