Plenty of posters here were flaming the Rangers on a regular basis before the lockout. Overpaid and underachieving...no one had a problem when those teams were taken to task. But, since the lockout, both under Renney, and now, under Tortorella, you've had hard-working teams that on a consistent basis, put in honest effort. And, with regard to the current team, I think many of the posters here are more protective of them, since, they are the product of Sather finally building a team in the correct manner...a better drafting and development approach, and allowing an actual team identity to be created. And, due to the inexperience and the development process, there are going to be bumps in the road. Losing sucks, but moreso when the product on the ice consists of overpaid, uninspired veterans cashing retirement checks. That's not what we're seeing right now.
