1st, 2nd, or 4th. We will either win the division or be the best team to not win a division.

6th place

I'm thinking 3rd or 4th and a possible ECF series.

As high as 5th but as low as 12th is my honest opinion.

2nd or 3rd... Drury will have a better season, Naslund and Gomez should fare beter than in years past, guys like Girardi can focus on D and not NEED to pinch, and Lundqvist is Lundqvist. Solid cast of role-players, Mara-Kalinin = Rozsival-Malik circa '05-06. We'll be fine.

I'm really looking forward to see what the rangers can do this season. Nice roster changes and I think Henrik may put up some consistancy this season, if he does, he might very well be the topgoalie of the league.

i can see them landing anywhere from 1st to 13th. This team went through ALOT of personel changes. if they gel quickly and play well (as in all having career years, or above avg years) they can get 1st. If not and this team doesn't have chemistry it will be a disaster. I think they will be fighting for the 8th seed more than likely though, but their defense could get them higher. i still hate their offense.

Lundqvist is among the most consistent goalies, IMO. Much moreso than guys like Giguere, Fleury, Gerber, even Nabokov. That's what makes him so good. He plays at top level night-after-night. He'll have one or two bad stretches per-season, but never for more than a month.

Marley...

Lundqvist is consistently inconsistent. During the first 1/5 of the season, he was on, and each night he was consistently great. During the next, say 2/5 - 3/5, he was spotty, and on some nights dreadful. He finished the season good. That's not consistent to me. And in the playoffs, he was fine, but giving up 3 or more goals 6 times and 10 games isn't all that great. Too many games with 3 or more goals being given up, although when averaged with his shutouts and one goal games, it looks real good. Almost like the reliever with a 4.00 ERA - doesn't look that great, but when he goes 8 innings in 8 games while giving up zero runs but gives up four in one other game, it doesn't look too good, which is why I sometimes don't rely on stats and feel that averages aren't the best measure of stats either.

So true. When he's playing well, he's nearly unstoppable. But then again, there are the games where he could let in goal after goal. Can't really blame him though, a lot of those games where he let in a handful of goals were fluke goals or just the Def. not showing up, at all, and leaving him out to dry.

I think this season is really tough to call. There were just so many changes. On paper the team does look really solid - dejavu of last year isn't it... If the chemistry builds and Renney actually gives the lines a chance this season, I can see them being either first or second in the Division.

Pitts still seems like the team to beat, and Philly, well they will be a pain too. But I would imagine that they are saying the same about the Rangers. This division is too close!

Ahhh, can't wait for hockey!
