We were 1 point behind Washington with a roster that was mis-matched for most of the season. The team heated up after the deadline when the team actually had decent depth throughout the lineup.

I don't care about the past wrt to NJ and Philly. I think Philly is going to challenge for a playoff spot, but their roster is suspect. NJ is just not a well built team, and Marty is like 41 now. He was declining last year, it'll be worse this year. I honestly think they're going to finish with a top-5 pick next year (oh wait...no, they won't ).

Either way, the Rangers should be expected to make the playoffs at this point. What I'm worried about is their ability to win it once they get there.
