Who are the impact imjuries?
No other teams have faced injuries like the Rangers!? Really?
I bet Pittsburgh fans might disagree. Islanders fans, too. Some others, also.
Is it possible that the shoulder injury Gaborik suffered has impacted him all season and thats why he's not playing well? Shoulder injuries can linger for months especially for a guy who shoots the puck like Gaborik does. Prospal was a big part of the team last year. How can you honestly say his missing over half the season had a minor impact on the team? How about Cally's and Dubi's injuries. They each missed over a month. That had no impact on the team? Lastly you ignore Fedetenko's injury. That also had a huge impact.
Let's go to the rest of your response. The difference between whats happened in Pittsburgh and NY is that from day 1 we've been battling injuries. The Penguins injuries, other than Staal, didn't start till around the All Star break. By the way since then they've been a .500 hockey club. According to you they probably should look to fire the coach, right?
