For this team to succeed, AV will need a miracle.


The greatest delusion of the optimistic NYR fan is our level of talent. BTW, not sure how you exist given 1 success in the last 73 years.

The goalie is elite, the defense is just above average, and the forwards are well below average. This team played WAY above its talent two years ago - an enormous effort that was exhausting - grind, grind, grind. Couldn't do it again, too exhausting and disappointing to repeat.

It's not fun watching this team over the last 15 years - always a new excuse for why we're close but not quite good enough. Let me let you in on a little secret, we're not CLOSE.

Gretzky was the last team that had a shot - as a cinderella story with a legends last run. Now THAT was fun to watch. This sucks year after year after year.
