A bright future

I don't post much these days, but in the 37 years I've been following this team, this is one of the more cohesive, poised, and hard-working NYR teams I've ever seen. What makes that so remarkable to me is how freakin young this group really is. With the success they had this season and the way the team approaches the game, you almost can't help but take their age for granted. But when you look at the players listed out, and it really hits you how young the players are, it's pretty amazing the direction the team is going. I mean at 27 Girardi is like an old man on our D...

Del Zotto (21)
Erixon (21)
McDonagh (22)
Sauer (24)
Staal (25)
Stralman (25)
Girardi (27)
Eminger (28)

Kreider (20)
Stepan (21)
Hagelin (23)
Anisimov (23)
Zuccarello (24)
Dubinsky (25)
Callahan (27)
Boyle (27)
Prust (28)
Gaborik (30)
Richards (31)
Rupp (32)
Fedotenko (33)

Lundqvist (30)

I love what this team is doing with now and it has been an amazing season thus far. But this team is so young it actually has room to become a lot stronger. Especially as the guys on D really mature. These are good times to be a NYR fan.
