If you think about, three of the four work stoppages happened with the Rangers a 50-win team. I mean they were at 49 for the 1992 strike then crushed the Pens the last game of the season after two weeks off to hit 50.

1992, 1994 and 2012.

If the average 2012 NHL player really feels like a modern-day slave under Reichsfuhrer Bettman's Draconian rule, they should talk to Stan Mikita and Darryl Sittler and Johnny Bucyk.

NHL players never had it so good. Gross overexpansion employing guys who shouldnt be NHL employed, mega TV deals, UFA well before they hit 30...

The Rangers are still sitting pretty. Young team with young star players and a deep farm system. They can lose a full year.

And how much you wanna bet the future Brooklyn Isles get the No. 1 draft pick in the June Draft if the season's cancelled.
