We will get real respect when we accomplish something of note. There hasn't yet been a point this season where we've looked at the standings for more than one day and seen the Rangers at the top. I know, I know... they've played less games than everyone. The point remains the same. The Rangers have been hovering between 4th and 6th for a while now. If they're in 4th or leading their division come February, that's at least a small accomplishment... although they led their division at the Olympic break in 05-06, so it could still be meaningless. Why should the Rangers record right now garner much respect when this is a league that saw Atlanta as one of the best teams in the conference heading into the New Year last season?

Well, all of that and this.
