Hank...definitely Hank. Even without a cup, if he plays his whole career here....his numbers will be pretty damn impressive.

Lundqvist would also be the first European-born player whose number gets retired at the Garden.

I think Ratelle should be up there but i don't think he and the NYR organization are on good terms.

Considering he'll most likely crack 200 before this season is over, and is already signed for a few more years, it seems like he'll most likely crack those records before this contract is up (barring injury).

I'm praying Hank can get a ring in his career with us, because he's going to have every major goalie record for a Ranger but it all seems moot without a cup.

Ratealle wasn't a Ranger long enough; he was a VERY productive player but he also spent many seasons on the Bruins. Ditto for Brad Park.

Henrik has a shot but 1. He has to get them past round 2 of the playoffs...something Beezer, JD, and even Baker (or was it Soetart?) did. 2. He needs to stay consistent and healthy 3. Who knows what will happen after his next contract...he might want to leave if he feels he has a better chance to win a Cup somewhere else.

I hope he breaks all of Richter's numbers and stays of course.

-Any of Cally/Dubi/Staal do if this team can win multiple Cups but that's not even worth discussion at this point.

I'm predicting #18: a long ways off.

If that happens then there have been some happy years for Ranger fans.

Since the shootout has been around, Hank should have no problem blowing Richter away in wins, he's actually on pace to do it before his 32 birthday....

I want to also pose this question. Suppose Jagr somehow had propelled us to a Cup in his 4 years here (the year we lost to Buffalo was probably our best shot), would his number be a consideration?
If Jags won a Cup during his time here, I'd say yes, definitely. It begs the question of what a retired number is meant to represent: production over tenure...or impact on the franchise.

You cannot compare all the championships the habs won the yanks 27 championships at all!!!!!!! The majority of them are from when there were 6 teams or less, thats a joke. I understand its historic from a hockey standpoint, but as much as it disgustingly pains me to say this, with only 6 teams, we should have more than 4 overall

You know what's a joke, the Rangers only winning three in 40+ years with six teams.

I think if Hank for some reason had to retire now, his jersey will be up there.

You know what else is a joke? There were a lot more then six teams.

Its a falacy, the notion that there were only six teams. The reason the Rangers, Bruins, Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Red Wings, and Black Hawks are recognized and dubbed "The Original Six" is simply because they're the only surviving six franchises from the pre-expansion era in the 1970's.

Proof? When the Rangers won their first Cup in 1928, they defeated the Montreal Maroons.

More Proof? The New York Americans moved to Brooklyn in the 1940's, they were still in the league.

More proof?

Well, here is a good read:

http://m.google.com/gwt/x?q=NHL+team...hlhistory.html

A little research goes a long way.

There were a lot of teams that contended for the Stanley Cup.

And to take it further, through their first 20 years of existence, the Rangers not only made the playoffs, but finished among the top of the league.

The Stanley Cup has always been an elusive trophy and hard to win.

The Canadiens had an upper hand, because they retained the rights to every prospect in the Province of Quebec, if I recall correctly. That means every great player to come from Quebec instantly became a Montreal Canadien. There was no such things as free agency as we know it today. Mostly, teams were built from scouting their own talent and trades.

Anyway, the Rangers are not this franchise shrouded in shame and failure as some here would have others believe.

There is a long, rich history of success. Contenders from the 20's to the 40's. Then again in the 70's, late 80's, early 90's.

The only team that can claim success through their entire existence are the Canadiens, and I mentioned a big reason for it.

Not to sound cocky and rude, but I knew about the other teams and how the Canadiens always, even Toronto, would get whoever was the best from their area.

Good post. Love reading NHL history.

Still, come on, four cups in 85 years. 54 year drought... I'm not trolling, just saying.

The regional draft made everything lopsided. Montreal and Toronto got all of the best players. The Rangers and Blackhawks got the shaft with that.

but the fact you guys are making a goalie that hasn't played a complete season from start to finish. He hasn't won crap in the playoffs. ( and I know team is weak) hasn't won a cup or stolen a playoff series a sure lock? This is why this site is really getting bad they fact you guys are all so young and most never even saw gresh and yet your anti retiring his number is nuts
