SQUARE PEG IN A ROUND HOLE
Just the sight of Lundquist being pulled from a game makes you wonder, "How did they get this bad?" It's a simple answer.
Last season they had a defensive minded coach and they traded away offensive style players so as to fit the game plan. The team decides to fire the coach and get an offensive minded coach. Now you are left with defensive oriented players trying to work in an offensive style system. When the dust settles on this idea, you are left with the 2013-2014 New York Rangers.
Alain Vigneault pointed out that he is not quite sure the Rangers have the personnel to play an offensive-oriented game. Even the coach sees the problem and if he is going to succeed with this team he has to put a system into place that fits his personnel.
