Oh ya, and the Rangers are not nearly that good, but I'm perfectly fine with TSN setting the expectations so high so they can fall on their faces trying to match up to them.

I'm going to channel DATW and say it's because their defence is terrible, and they need more PMDs so they can hit the blue line with speed and play as a five man unit in the offensive zone.
