Anyone else enjoying these latest "Rangers Classics" as much as I am?

Great to see some of the Rangers from the 80s. Things I've noticed:
1) Beezer looks tiny in the net
2) Tomas Sandstrom was a hell of a player.
3) The flow of the game is a joy to watch.
4) They never should have traded Mike Ridley.
Up here in Boston, NESN has been showing "Classic Bruins" during the winter, games mainly from the 80's and early 90's. Not only is the hockey sharper and the goaltenders smaller, but the atmosphere is more intense because the NHL rocked with rivalries: Rangers-Isles, B's-Habs, etc. Even the games against the Whalers are eminently watchable.
We're very lucky to have the college game up here. There is a four-team race for the Hockey East regular season title. Last night's UNH-BU game had everything you could want: a packed house, shots galore. Well, almost everything. UNH scored late to tie it and the game ended up 4-4.
