What I didn't get was Stany boy predicting how the rangers were gonna do all these great things once they got into the playoffs. I gotta ask what exactly did he see in that team last year to make him believe anything special was going to happen. Again this is not an Isles/Rangers thing this is what did he see w/ the Rangers that to make this prediction? Once again I'll say it the NHL season starts tonight
I understand you're not making it a Ranger-Islander thing. My point is Stan is overly optomistic about all the teams. Whether he felt that the Rangers would catch the Isles or not (and more people than just Stan felt that way) he is always hyping the local teams. And if the Rangers had made it in, I think that would have faired better than they did in the regular season. Hell, Ottawa was already getting ready to complain about the Rangers' money and the fact that they "bought" Kovalev.
