This team doesn't pass the eye test right now. Three Rangers got back in transition on the third goal and one guy back for the Lightning with no one else in sight except Palat who looked like he was out for a leisurely Sunday skate as he trailed the play. A lot of disinterested players.

Personally I cant wait to hear about how they played a great game and didnt get the bounces, but are right where they want to be.

They suck, no determination. They've not played a full game since maybe January.

Cooper is the only part that is easily changed. He has been tuned out.

Any experienced available coaches unemployed?

This was an awful game. You could easily defend the last 3 - not this one.

3 regulars missing hurt, but they should still have been able to win this.

Maybe Cooper is the problem, but I feel like it's taking the easy way out to blame him for everything. What I want to know is where are the players? These guys have enough experience that they should be winning the majority of their games even if they had no coaching staff at all. Maybe some of these guys just don't give a shit about the early part of the regular season after what happened last year.

There is something wrong with the speed of our game. It’s gone. What used to be almost exclusively us and Toronto as the fastest teams in the nhl; now we look slower than everyone. Coaching is the obvious scapegoat; but you have a roster full of players with experience and yet we look like a brand new roster. My doubt is creeping in with cooper but your not going to see a drastic change 10 games in with the first “drought” in seasons. Don’t give me the stats of their record since his extension.

Implementing the new system gives some leeway imo; but the patience is running thin. You have to give credit for making an effort this season in changing the style of play to fit playoffs after years of not making it to the big show. but; I’m afraid the team isn’t built for that and the illusion of adding a guy that all the sudden makes us way heavier and a checking team.
Are the injuries from this style? Are a lot more player wore down from the change than what is known? The post game comments is the most concerning. General lack of urgency and carelessness that something is way off.

I think missing Stralman is a factor. He was such a steadying influence back there. But it's not just one guy, this whole team has not recovered from the Columbus series.
