What was the hype around the Rangers before the 93-94 season?

Oh the irony...
I remembered Messier getting booed at the end of the previous season after an incredible debut season. Also, there was a lot of questioning of Leetch and the young rookie's commitment. NY papers had rumors of him out partying, and that was how the ankle got hurt: "he was drunk"
So,here is the irony for my part: Sept of '93, a longtime buddy and hockey-guy (played in college, coached high school, etc), and Ranger fan, calls me to tell me he went in with 3 other guys for Devils season ticket (4 seats) and one of the guys dropped out at the last minute, would I like to get in?
Now keep in mind, after Messiers first year, Ranger tickets were almost impossible to get, even after they missed the playoffs. They were a LOT cheaper back then as well. So I go ahead with the devils tickets, rationalizing that It's for my company, taking out clients, yada yada yada.
I took a lot of abuse from my fellow Rangers fan....until the playoffs rolled around. Yes, I saw "The Guarantee" game...
