I usually just stick to the OT, and the lockout thread in here, but what the hell I'll give my opinion.
I think the Rangers have a really good chance. I think any team has a chance to get into the playoffs in a 48 game season. Maybe not the Isles
, but nobody is safe I don't think. Toronto was in 8th place after 48 games last year, and we know where they ended up. Phoenix was 12th in the West, and won the Pacific in the end.
The Rangers will be in the playoffs no matter what. I'd say that's a given, but I think the 3 month season will help because the team will be more rested after the long playoff run. Lundqvist also does not particularly appear to be prone to rust like Brodeur, and Luongo after sitting for long periods of time.
