It's not that this team is boring to watch. Or that they don't have the passion. What it comes down to is just the skill level on this team is just so mediocre. And the worst part of it is, we have these mediocre players signed to superstar contracts for a good part of a decade.
All this losing stretch is doing is amplifying the fact that unless major changes are made this is what we're going to be stuck with for a very long time due to the cap. The worst part about that is having half the cap tied up in these mediocre players it is going to be nearly impossible to keep the players that could actually help this squad in the future signed ex, Dubi, Staal, Zherdev, Cally, Mara, etc...The fact of the matter is that one of those people who have been the better Rangers this season IMO will not be with the club next season because of the contracts that Sather has handed out.
It's not on Renney who had a helluva run with a mediocre product at the beginning of the season, it's not on the players because it's not their fault they accepted the millions of dollars that were thrown at them. It's on Sather for signing these players to the contracts he did. It's on Sather for stopping a rebuild when our prospect pool was still dry. It's on Sather for not doing his job.
Now I may not enjoy watching this team go out there every night and pansy it up for 60 minutes. But I'm a die-hard Rangers fan. You cut me and I'll bleed blue while I smile and laugh at you. I know for a fact that every time a player wearing a Rangers jersey steps onto the ice for a game, I'll be behind my television or in the arena, cheering for them to win. Because that's what fans do.
