"MUCH" better? Meh. The Rangers are a good team, and they're capable of winning any night; if this was last year, yeah, maybe I give them the BOD. But not now. No more. You don't get partial credit when stupid mistakes prevail.
The Ranger defense isn't terrible but we were playing Eminger, who was supposed to be the 7th man, and Erixon, who was already sent to the AHL and we had no Staal while they had Doughty and Johnson. Johnson isn't much defensively but he provides offense from the back that we just don't have and thats another dimension of their defense that we have no answer to at all.

Maybe the caps on the much was pushing it but they have forward depth that we can't match in my opinion and without Staal their D is way ahead of ours.
