What's Wrong with the Star-Studded NY Rangers Lineup?

From top to bottom, this team is a mess.

The offense is among the worst in the league, the defense isn't nearly as stingy as it was last year, the power play is doing more harm than good and the coach doesn't seem to know how to fix any of it.

After a dismal start, it seemed that near the 10-game mark the Rangers had finally found the mojo they had last year that carried them to the Eastern Conference Final. A string of five games with a point had Rangers fans feeling good.

But inconsistency reared its ugly head while several key players went down with injury. The result: a perfect storm that resulted in the Rangers dropping four straight before Thursday's victory over Tampa Bay.

But in all honesty, this team has been playing subpar hockey all season, and the injuries are not to blame at all. Even in those five consecutive games in which they registered a point, there was much concern, especially in the games against the Islanders and Boston.

We’re going to take a closer look and break down this season’s woes by position after the jump.
