I thought the law of averages would factor in at some point but I just gave up with that, they look like world beaters. The Rangers just gotta take care of their own business right now, they can't bank on Pitt losing games because it doesn't look likely.
Personally I think the ceiling for them is the ECF. They are just not enough of a threat in the offensive zone to be legit SC contenders. The only way this team gets to the dance is if the stars align. Like Pitt suffers a bad injury down the stretch or something.

Honestly, I'm happy with the team. We didn't have to go through the torture of hoping for a playoff spot.

As long as the Rangers work really hard and establish their forechecking better during the playoffs; I will be a happy camper. This is going to be a great learning experience for our younger players. IMO, they are ahead of schedule on where they are supposed to be. This offseason is going to be seeing which of our pieces stay or go.
