What he said.
Last season under Torts the Rangers record for the first month of the seasons was 3-4. This season they started out 2-5. And if you go back the prior two seasons, the Rangers were 4-6 and 5-5 out of the gate. Fact is, Torts never got the Rangers off to a hot start.
And you already know the team started with 2 of it's Top 6 forwards out with injuries. And Nash went down after only 3 games. You can't be without your top players and expect to have any great success.
Not to mention we have yet to play a home game and still won't have done so for another 5 days. Which is one of the most ludicrous schedule starts ever.
Once healthy, the Rangers will be competitive again. They may be a 2-5 team now, but they won't stay that bad over the long haul. Just like Philly won't be playing at a 1-7 pace and St. Louis won't be playing at a 5-2 pace as the season progresses. Performances will level off over a full season.
