What? Ottawa finished 5th last year with an injury plagued season, when we had our full line up we went on a 11 game winning streak and contending for the North East, now we have the same line up and arguably better with the addition of Gonchar and we some how get beaten by Montreal who squeezed into the playoffs and lost their #1 goalie? Get Real.

That's why I just cringe when I see the "a team with Henke and Gaborik on it" posts. They got a career year from Gaborik, and Henke played 70 games last year. That couldn't get them a playoff spot. Too many teams behind them improved, and teams like Philly and Boston, who they were chasing, got better.

I'm okay with some of this...didn't need to overpay for Boogaard, didn't need both Prospal and Christensen, and didn't need to give Christensen a 2nd year. I expect to take lumps this year, and probably next year. Just don't go blowing smoke up my ass about how the organization is excited by what Christensen can bring to the table.

Depending on what they get for Vinny?

I could easily see a 6th seed for that team.

As bad as this team is, I just don't see how we finish near the bottom of the Conference unless Lundqvist and Gaborik miss significant time.

If Drury does not regain his form and Prospal has his "off" season which to me is expected then all it will take is a 5-10 game injury for the Rangers to have them very close to last in the conference.

If only we could actually find a way to finish 30th this season...then I'd finally start to feel really good about the future. lol

Are the Rangers really any worse than they were last year, when they missed the playoffs by one point? Of course, other Eastern Conference teams have gotten better, so I see where people are coming from, but I think we'll be a fringe playoff team again.

Last year was an aberration. Most years the amount of points the Rangers had puts them around 10th-11th in the East. Most of the teams either around the Rangers or better last season got better over the offseason. Hard to see them making much noise consistently but the positive side is that we will hopefully see the younger players play some significant minutes.

I am with the consensus on this one, we not only do not make the PO's this year (if no further roster changes occur) but we are in a position to finish looking at a top 5 draft pick. WE couldn't put together a winning combination of games all season long and at the end we almost pull it out of our butts? We should not have been that close to a PO position. I am more inclined to consider the ending of the season a fluke with an easy schedule. This team falls alittle shorter than last years in terms of personnel.

Carolina is getting seriously underrated.

Last year they were screwed by injuries. Staal had an off year and was also injured for a while. Ward was injured. They actually do have a decent team.

Not with Hank and Gabby. They will fight for a playoff spot.

Don't see Tampa Bay going from 12th to 5th. Regardless of their offseason moves this year.

Call it a half-dozen or whatever you want, realistically, those points are crucial, and the difference between the teams in those spots is usually a lot of quality play.

We shall see. They have added some high end pieces to some existing high end talent. Maybe they aren't there yet...but they now have a very good core.

Remember in Looney Tunes cartoons where they show the temperature rising so far that it breaks the thermometer?

Turn that upside down and thats how I predict this season. I will however enjoy watching the kids play. And I'm not buying the whole as long as we have Hank we'll be a borderline playoff team argument. He's done it for too many seasons in a row now, something's got to give. I'm also leery of Gaborik this season.

What can I say, I'm a pessimist, prove me wrong Rangers. But until then I'm not going to be that amped when we get off to our usual fast start.

I'm willing to bet Leafs dont finish higher than us. Also noticed that few people have Carolina in bottom 2 or 3. I think they could fight for a playoff spot.


1. Washington
2. Pittsburgh
3. Boston
4. New Jersey
5. Philadelphia
6. Buffalo
7. Montreal
8. Ottawa
9. Atlanta
10. Carolina
11. Rangers
12. Tampa Bay
13. Islanders
14. Toronto
15. Florida

It seems the Rangers exceeded expectations for all of us. I predicted us to make the playoffs. Although they were only the 8th seed, they were still impressive with the lineup they had.

How about that Sens fan Afro Thunder? lol I wonder how #13 felt.

It's funny how outraged people were when we got thumped by washington in a 1-8 matchup (no heart or effort!! Torts didn't prepare the team!! ) yet so many (many of the same i'd imagine) had us finishing 11-15 in the standings.

Yeah, the fact is that this team over-performed based on the talent and expectations. It was a successful season despite the result in the playoffs.

I agree. It's a success when a team goes above your expectations. I didn't expect to beat Washington, really, so what the hell.
