The Rangers have one of the deepest and best blue lines in the league and the best goaltender. They play a defensive style. Even their offensive players play defense. This is not the prelockout teams. They will have fewer defensive players than last year's team, however I like this balance more. Remember last year's team against the Senators? They didn't allow many goals but they were pinned in their zone the entire game, every game almost. It was like they were on the PK 50 minutes in the game. Hell they were pinned in their zone against the Caps and Devils. How can you get offense that way? Seriously, it was a little pathetic watching them. All they did was block shots in their own zone. I want a team that can skate the puck out of their zone and spend time in the other team's zone and force the other team to block shots.
