claims of "injuries" is a false argument since they affect other teams too.

NY will be better because they are filling in the roster with draft picks, developing players into and through the AHL using similar systems, not making as many poor early round draft picks, building a system of accountability, consistency and a work ethic that other teams will quite likely copy.

As I have said big price free agents are as often Gomez or Redden, than Richards or Gaborik. So I think NY is better off bringing back the core players and locking them up for longer terms.

Hank has been great its true but in my lifetime we ranger fans have seen Beezer, Richter and now Henke. That strikes me as a pretty relevant pattern of developing world class goalies

Yes it is awesome that NY is 2 wins from the finals. If they win it all this year I will celebrate like the rest of you (perhaps even more as I remember the 79 season too)

but what I am really pumped about is that the NYR will be BETTER next season !
