Without henrik we would be out of the playoffs by a mile this year, so he's got to be my favourite even though a goalie is not usually a guy i would pick. Anyway i also like Korpi, Stall, Cally, Antrapov, Dubi, Orr and of course Avery.

My favorite players outside the rangers are:

Lidstrom, Sakic, Modano, Fedorov, Tanguay, Kopitar, Ovechkin, Kariya, Stastny, Wolski, Mike Richards.


All Time - Sakic, Gretz, Mess, Roenick, Coffey, Leetch, Ovy, Lidstrom, Fedorov, Modano, Fedorov, Yzerman, LaFontaine, Bure and Jagr's Mullet. Not Jagr himself (who I loved as a Ranger but nowhere else) but his Mullet.

Most hated players of all time - Lemiux, Crosby, jason Blake, Scott Stevens, and Fatso.

ok here comes everyone laughing, but i'm not afraid to admit that WADE REDDEN is my favorite Ranger. I'm 19 now, and in my HS and travel days, I was a defenseman who contributed offesnively, so Redden was the player i "idolized" (even wore #6 in bantam/midget for that reason). He was always one of my favorites so I'm sticking with him now

My favorite player for the Rangers was Petr Prucha. Still one of my favorites, just not for the Rangers.

Now:

Lundqvist and Paul Mara.

I like the underdogs:

Redden
Rozsy
Naslund
Gomez (he's not too much of an underdog, though)

Just because I love to see them do well and it's glossed over on these boards.

I also adore Chris Drury, his interviews put me to sleep, yeah, but I love his play on the ice.

I of course like Z, and Mara is the man.

The only Ranger I didn't really "feel" is gone now... Dawes. I just did not think he deserved to wear the sweater.

I just love this team, man... and I root for whoever puts on the red, white, and blue.

Oh and Jagr was my unabashed favorite before he left. I loved him as a Pen back in the day, and the dude just personifies badassery.

I didn't know Blair Betts had to be my favorite player because he plays hard... sorry.

You have your favorites and I'll have mine.

Naslund and Henke because of my Swedish forebears and Gomez because his wise ass personality reminds me a lot of a very good friend of mine who passed away several years ago.

Lundqvist first by a wide margin. Then Girardi, then Callahan and Staal 2-4 in a close race. However, none of them can hold a candle to Leetch or Richter.

I dont know if this is restricted to current players or not, but my absolute favorite Ranger growing up was Pierre Larouche - the reason I wore #24 during my playing days (although he switched to #10 later on in his Ranger career).

All-time Ranger that I've seen play would have to be Brian Leetch

Current Ranger - Henrik Lundqvist. I have a #30 Lundqvist jersey and remember telling anyone that would listen during the lockout that he would be the next big thing for the Rangers. He certainly didnt disappoint.
