The Rangers team I am always most fond of are the teams from the 70,s. They challenged for the Cup for the first 5 years then realized they had to retool and made the trade with Boston for Espo and he led them back to the finals in 1979. I would rank those teams ahead of this years team but I see a bright future for this group.
