We are icing a different lineup than last season, so it's not like it's the same cast of characters failing, year after year. This team is finally starting to come into their own. They are far from perfect, but i don't they've regressed into the "same old rangers" because they blinked first a lost a one goal game.
We need some players back in the line up and we need some players out of the lineup. we need some upgrades.
Because the past makes it clear that worrying about the future of this team this season is something that needs to be done. Because i've seen them get off to hot starts way too many times and blow it make what they are doing right now meaningful. If they can sustain that level of play all year then that's great, but that's certainly not a given. People, yourself included, have absolved the Rangers of any criticism due to this hot start. Has this organization earned that right? I think not. They owe it to all of us to prove that they are not the same old rangers. That come crunch time they are still going to be playing well and winning. When I see losses like this, it brings back those old feelings/old concerns.
We've iced a different lineups the past 3 years (just as an example). Same result. Is this the best one? Yeah I think it is. I like the team's heart. I like their spirit. I think they are a good TEAM. But anything past that I'm not convinced of yet. Nobody should be. Dave Lozo said it best a couple of weeks back on XM. Cautious Optimism. That's how he felt about the Rangers and that's how I feel too.
