Couldn't disagree more with this article. This is the most consistent game-to-game effort I've seen from the Rangers in a long time.

Yes, the game against the Thrashers was a bit of a stinker, but they didn't lay back and die after going down 5-2 and fought to make it a 1-goal deficit.

Even when they were getting pinned in their own zone against the Leafs, the Rangers took the body and blocked shots. That's hard work right there.

The writer seems to be confusing a lack of talent for lack of effort. This is a far cry from the teams of years past that featured players such as Redden, Kotalik, Jokinen, etc. who floated around, didn't backcheck, and often appeared like they were taking shifts off.
