I'm a bit curious, where is all this supposed speed the Ranfers have. I definitely didn't see it against the Devils who have one speedy defender in Rafalski. I don't see one Ranger that is a better skater than Jason Blake or Jeff Tambellini.You guys make itsound like the Isles have nothing but goons. I'd say guys like Zhitnik, Blake, Tambellini, Hilbert, Campoli, Asham, Hunter, Satan, Bates, York, & even Yashin can skate with or even better than the Rangers. Shanahan is as slow as they come, Malik, Rosival, Kasparaitis, Hossa, Ward, Ortmeyer, Betts, & Rachunek are far from being speed burners. I just don't see it. Last season the Rangers lived off Jagr & Lundquist, and once those two were contained it was a total melt down.
