Rangers winning % so far this year? .678

A few more wins and this will be, by percentage, the best NYR team in history.
With a longer schedule, too.

Though, I wouldn't say this is the best Rangers team ever, I think the Rangers during the years between 28 and 33 were the best in franchise history, with 40, 50, 72, 92, 94 right there, too.

Though, right now we have the best goaltender in franchise history in his prime, and probably the most depth as far as homegrown/young talent the Rangers have ever had.

Things are looking bright.

I just REALLY hope this isn't a 1970's situation where the team is good enough to win multiple Cups is reality, but the teams around them are also peaking at the same time. Penguins, Bruins, Flyers will be a perennial pain in the ass.
