I said 75%, I think we have the talent to do it I'm just worried with the Gaborik injury that it could continue to be a reoccuring problem. I want to see him back to normal before I'm more confident. I'm thinking Jagr in 06(?) when his shoulder was bothering him all season and he lost his shot.

50 - almost every team in the eastern is a playoff team, and without gabby prospal and drury we need to step it up.

If they can go .500 and then get back Gaborik, Drury and Prospal they will be just fine

This is a big IF but last night was a good start

Yeah. A lot of tough teams in the league this year we need Gaborik to stay healthy if we want to get a shot.

50%

It's up in the air right now.

I'll answer 75% if Gaborik comes back AND the team is in a decent spot after his absence.

Funny you should ask that because going into last night I said if the Rangers don't beat the Leafs the season is over.

Since they won, I have to say, yes.

I said 50% but that assumes Gabby not out too long and staying healthy the rest of the season.

If drury doesn't come back I'd up ti 75%

50% for me. The only thing I'm sure of is that this team is as maddening as always.

50%. Its too early to see if the Rangers will be able to win without Gaborik in the lineup and if he stays healthy when he does come back. Also, it seems like every team in the East(with the exception of Florida) has gotten better and that the playoff race will be really tight. But only time will tell

I'm saying that it's kind of silly to believe that game #5 of the season would have that big of playoff implications... but I felt that it was a very important game none the less.

Since they won, I have to believe that they are going to make the playoffs.

Not specifically game number 5, the entire season so far. Surely you have had to begin forming some opinion of this team after 5 games, I know I have.

i guess ill go with 25%...because 0% is ridiculous, you cant ever be 100% sure a team will not make the playoffs...but im highly dubious.

50%

I see how we played in Toronto and think man if we can just get the consistency then we are going to be very good.

I see how we played against Toronton in the Garden and think i want to kill myself.

Its just growing pains that we have to put up with and that i dont mind.

25%

Zero expectations coming into the season. Never bought into good camp. Problems from last year blatantly obvious by Game 2 and persisted.

I'm just happy to see the kids play. Playoffs are fun and a nice feather in a coach's cap but I'm willing to have another lottery season.

My eyes are on 2014. I want them to be a 50-win team by that point.

25%. I have very low expectations for this squad. Next year I would say at least 50%. And the year after I'll say 75%. We're on the way up imo...just gonna take a bit of patience.

I guess I could spell it out for you....

Loss to Toronto, a record of 1-3-1......I'm already have doubts about the season.

A win over TO, a record of 2-2-1..... .500 after 5 games without some key players, feeling good about the season so far.

I voted 25%, but honestly... I think Im more like 35% or so... if Gabby lights it up... with Lundqvist... if the rookies... etc etc, so there's always a CHANCE... buuuuuutttt.....

So literally one lucky bounce for Toronto or for the Ranger's in that ONE game determines your thoughts on our post season chances?

Winning, and collecting 2 points, and losing, and not collecting 2 points, yes that goes a long way to determining if the Rangers will make the playoffs or not

I see you are trying to make sure that it appears there is a demand for these threads by driving up the post count. I won't be joining you in that game any longer.

The big question going into this year was whether the young players would improve enough to make the team better. So far, the evidence I've seen is yes...definitely yes. This is a good team that has a chance to get much better as the year goes on. I voted 100% because I think this could be the surprise team in the east this year.
