This is a note that I don't see most Ranger fans appreciate. And it has less to do w/ the actual players. The Rangers medical staff the last few years has done a bang up and unheralded job. Obviously injury prevention is something you can never numerically measure, but ancedotally the last 3 seasons, the Rangers have had a decent showing in health and I don't think it's a fluke.

I hope for even larger strides in the medical side of the Rangers organization. A top 5 medical staff and thorough prevention programs can effectively add 10% to your salary cap figure.
i think the worst as far as injuries is the kings, leafs and bruins i think
