IMO this team has been overachieving big time and I've been extremely happy with what they've done so far. 10-3-1 in 14 games is not too shabby considering they have no elite caliber forwards. Could Drury be playing better? the pwp? Sure--but Drury was a slow starter last year--came on strong at the end and looking at the kind of player he is he is not a big time point producer anyway. Neither is Gomez for that matter who's stats are about what they normally are. If anyone has the real talent to be an elite forward it's Zherdev who is still feeling his way a bit. Looking at the Pwp--we do not have a big cannon from a blueliner--and we're about as predicitable as we were last year partly because of that. Maybe we don't look so dominant in some of our games so far but the team looks resilient, has played with discipline, all the d-men transition the puck well. This years Rangers have found ways to win practically all the close contests. We're not going to win them all are we?
