The difference is that the 91-92 Rangers had the best record in hockey. They proved they were a top-tier team before that disappointing season. There is absolutely no comparison to be made between that caliber of team and last year's Ranger club, so there's little reason to think next year's club will "rebound." There's not much to "rebound" to.

Could Jagr himself rebound as Messier did? I suppose but it's worth remembering that Messier was 32/33 in the Cup year. Jagr will be 35/36 next season. He will find it toughr to rebound than the younger Messier did.
