Think I remember that game, it was on a Saturday night, and they were on the road. I was at a bar in Hoboken watching it with a buddy and we both jumped up and high fived. And everyone looked at us like we were nuts, cause no one else was watching the game!

Exactly. And no matter who they brought in, it didn't work. Anson Carter was a perfect example. Guy was a consistent 20+ goal scorer out in Boston & Edmonton. Came to the Rangers, turned into garbage!
