Our strategy is sound. Play strong defensively, pressure the puck all the way up the ice, etc, etc, etc.

Rangers are still 1 big offensive piece from being a team like Bawstun...one that's elite offensive AND defensively. Right now this team has 1/2 the puzzle down pat. Defensively...none better. Offensively, a lot to be desired.
I don't disagree with most of this either. But to use the pharse that should now always be associate with Antrel Rolle (for anyone not getting this click this http://newyork.cbslocal.com/?podcast...g=&dcid=CBS.NY it's worth it), at the end of the day we're winning at a higher rate than any other team in the league. All the stats don't matter, the games aren't played on paper. Plus our offensive "struggles" are really over exaggerated probably because of our past reputation of not scoring. But 13th isn't crazy low. We've proven that combined with all the other aspects of the way we play it's good enough to beat everyone. At the end of the day, that's all that matters, at the end of the day.
