In General

I think it's silly to be comparing any team from 10 years ago with a team today....In fact it's silly to think that any of us could look at a team on paper and figure out anything valid from it.
IF IT WERE THAT EASY the GM's would make up a list of a guaranteed Stanley cup winning team and they'd go for those players before the deadline each year.....AND DON'T TELL ME THAT nobody has the money to do it....The Rangers have been trying to buy the cup since '94 and look at what it got them.
Having said that....take a look at the Rangers rosters for the last 4 or 5 years and explain why they couldn't even make the playoffs?

Any reasons you can come up with will all go flying out the window come playoff time. The most beautiful part of Hockey is the UNPREDICTABLE season....we're (HABS) surprising and baffling every analyst out there this year for our regular season...what's to say it can't happen in the post-season?

After seeing us beat Philly, Toronto , NJ .... we have just as much of a chance at the Cup as any other team....but the operative word is CHANCE
