Ah, ah, ah, take a step back there. You wrote, "Do you remember how you felt at the end of the 1992 - 1993 season ..." In '91-'92 the Rangers won the Presidents Trophy under Roger Neilson. Thus they had won the Presidents Trophy the year before 92-93 season, just as I said.
Please note, too, that you asked how I felt
the Cup season, thus how I felt
the Amonte trade.
Kovalev was putting up a 20 goal-in-63 game rookie campaign that year. I know I wasn't complaining about his shifts. And to be honest I don't remember him overstaying his shifts in his rookie season. But that aside, if we had a rookie of Kovalev's dynamism, 3-minute shifts or not, I'd feel a whole lot better about this organization.
