Honorable Mentions: Chris Kreider and Rick Nash
These two players were not nearly as pitiful as the rest of the players to come on the list, but they came up short of their expectations for sure.
Chris Kreider had just three goals and one assist through the Rangers’ 12 playoff games this postseason. That’s underwhelming considering he was playing an average of 17 minutes per game.
The one bright spot in Kreider’s game is that he was all over the ice at times. He could play defense and use his speed to get him to the places other guys couldn’t. However, his offensive statistics are a true blemish.
Rick Nash once again failed to find his game in the postseason. He has just 15 goals in a career 77 playoff games. This postseason followed that trend, just three goals and two assists through 12 games.
For these two, they couldn’t find their game in the playoffs and it hurt the team.
