The Rangers were 10-6-2 against the western conference last year. They gained 22 points out of playing the western conference. Now this year with the shortened season teams have played tighter. There has been no gimme games. Maybe in an 82 game season Torts has this team in the top 4 again. Who knows.

But the issue is, they had/have enough talent on this team to be in that top 4. You can blame the lockout all you want but then why are other teams doing so well? I just don't like the excuses. Pittsburgh has suffered injury after injury to their top players. They made no excuses. And imo they have a weaker goaltending and defense than ours. Is Bylsma a better coach than Torts? I'm starting to think so.
