08:29 AM ET 11.25 | Down 5-0 after two periods, John Tortorella didn't fault his goaltender. At one point, the Rangers had taken five shots on goal, while the Lightning had scored four times. "There's a handful of guys that have done a lot of work for this club, and we need the other handful, that haven't, to come and play." Asked if the "haven't" group included Marian Gaborik, who has scored just one goal in his last six games, Tortorella hammered his star winger for the first time this season. "He's supposed to be our best player," Tortorella said. "I looked at their best player, they were pretty good tonight. I didn't see our best player."

I always love it how coaches and management can rip players, but players cant rip them back. One of the most imcompetent organizations in all of sport.

There's a funny article on Glen Sather over at www.ff-press.com

lol

He needs to go!

No excuse not to have a winning team with their resources....

Who'd have expected Gaborik to take games off? Oh yeah, anyone who watched a Wild game when he played there. What a shock. You get what you sign up for, more often than not.

Agreed 100%. If it skates like a duck.....

"Gaborik ripped .... "

And now he's injured. Should take about a month for his hurt feelings to heal up.

100% correct. He's not a hard worker. He likes them to come easy, so it's about time that someone ripped him.

Obviously they need to give Boogaard and Avery more ice time.

Got to entertain the fans somehow.

So Rick Rypien just received an indefinite leave of absence from the Canucks for "personal reasons". No other information given or to be given. Hmm. Any ideas?

If its stemming from the whole fan grabbing incident, it might be Anger Management training, but you would think the NHL would try to use that info to their advantage. So I really have no idea. Best wishes to him if things are this bad. He's a fun player to watch, and that team could use his energy day in and day out.

At TSN it said that Rypien wasn't there for practise and that Kevin Kibesa had been pulled aside off the ice for a chat with the coach as well.

Speculation is either or both have been traded.

Kevin's a close friend of Rypien's so it could have been about that. Rick was given a leave of absence a couple of years ago for personal reasons. I don't think anybody ever explained why but it's been speculated it was for mental health reasons.

You'd better watch out HC cause if this catches on your Flames will be decimated.

Hey, at least on the bright side for Gaborik, all this spam here is distracting us from talking about him ;)
