On the contrary, it's also amazing to read some Ranger fans prediction of us immediately becoming a cup contender due to the Richards signing or any other things this off-season.
I'm happy to have Richards, but this doesn't automatically make us a top-4 seeded team ready to cruise in the playoffs. Typical Ranger fan over hype of a team that has only one (1) cup in the last 60+ years.
I think the Rangers can definitely make a 2nd round appearance this year but I still don't see us defeating the big guns in the East and especially the West. Something else that many people fail to realize is just because a year goes by, it doesn't mean that your young players improve automatically. This isn't NHL 11. There is every chance that they don't succeed as much as they do. Remember when we had "8 potential 20-goal scorers" a few years ago. Give me a break. Nothing ever works out the way it is planned. I know this sounds pessimistic, but people should do themselves a favor and be
and possibly hopeful instead of doubtful that they'll be nothing but a Stanley Cup contender.
