Bullseye! Agree with you wholeheartedly about Hank, has had elite regular season #'s for 6 seasons but until the day comes that he carries this or another team(yes, I feel his best shot at a cup will be with a better team) on his back for a playoff game let alone an entire series, there is no way he can be considered the best goalie in the game.

Also, his style of play is not conducive to a long career and so I believe his window with the rangers is no more than 3-5 yrs max. I love Hank's competitiveness but the truth is his game hasn't really improved all that much since his rookie season. Here's hoping our crackerjack GM gets his **** together for what will probably be his last 3 yrs as GM here and makes some bold moves(NO!, signing Richards tomw to a contract for 7-8 yrs at 7-8 mil per is hardly what I would classify as a bold move) to make this team good enough to make a run in the playoffs.
