Who is your favorite Ranger of all time?

I know we are going to get a lot of Mess, Leetch, Gravy and Richter here, but I think some of these may be interesting.

Mine
Jeff Beukeboom
great player and fan favorite until ****in Matt Johnson ended his career. I met him and he is alos a really great guy. Huge in person.

Mike Richter. But when it's all said and done it will probably shift to King Henrik.

Aside from the retired numbers.. I gotta go with Tony Amonte, even though he didn't accomplish much in NY, he should have never been traded. I just personally loved the way he played and always cheered for him wherever he went. He would have easily been 3rd in our all-time franchise scoring.

Joey Kocur....he had good hands for a fighter...infact he scored one of the most incredible goals ive ever seen against the Devils in the 92 playoffs..

Graves overall. and of course Messier/Leetch/Richter

Now a days probably go with Lundqvist. then Dubinsky/Callahan/Staal

as far as prospects that retired or were treated unfairly:

Manny Malhotra, Dan Blackburn, Stefan Cherneski, Tomas Kloucek


as far as retired players: Tony Amonte, Esa Tikkanen, Ulf Samuelsson, Jeff Beuekboom, Joe Koucer, Darren Langdon,

of course 9 11 99 35 are a given

How exactly were Cherneski and Kloucek treated unfairly? Or Blackburn for that matter (other than Slats waiting too long to get another goalie to share the load).

Amonte has not officially retired by the way, but don't know what he's waiting for.. not likely that he just sat out a year and will be returning.

there is a reason the #27 is in my name. I just wish his career as a Ranger would have turned out differently.

no question about it, gotta be Alexei Kovalev, amazing level of pure skill. Still wish he was a Ranger despite his sometimes maddening play.

Yes, Sergei Nemchinov is one of my all-time favorites, along with Greschner, Graves, Leetch, Dugay, Gilbert, Mess, Zubie, etc.

I am sure Staal, Dubi, Callahan, etc. will enter this list some day. Funny, I really don't have any "favorites" from about '95 to '05!

Hells Yeah, Sarge was one of my faves too...I always trusted him on the ice!!!
Loved Joey Kocur and Pat Verbeek and Theo Fleury too!!!

Bernie Nichols could have stayed longer too!!

reread, it said prospects that retired or treated unfairly. well after kloucek got hurt, he was dealt shortly after, that a bad move, he was better as a ranger than the other teams he was with. on nash and alt he was in the minors and back and forth, at least with the rangers he was playing although our team was brutal but at least he got a chance. they should have just used blackburn and get a good pick.

Wait so dealing a defenseman who had injury issues to another team where he did nothing was a bad move?
