Oh yeah, you're right. Seems i just got stumped, he he.
Who knows though, might be a way to try to change his bad luck with the recent
deflections...? Just a wild guess of course, but after them starting using the away shirts at home it seems there is quite a lot of superstition going on
Short answer, yes. We would most definitely have missed the playoffs consecutively since 05/06, if not for Hank.
You're a bit biased Mr. Swede (jag skämtar )
But yeah, Henrik has really been the glue that has kept us contending especially in the years after Jagr left.
This year we have been better overall but the two seasons before this have all been relative successes because of him. Without him in net we'd have been bottom feeders alongside the Islanders (and in all honestly, Henrik is what sets us apart from the Islanders in a lot of ways, especially the two seasons before this).
This has been the first year where our defense has actually given the guy some help in a lot of ways but that isn't to take anything away from what he brings to the team. It's just nice to actually have a reliable defensive pairing in Staal/Girardi and to a lesser extent McDonagh/Sauer.
We're talking about this Swedish dude, with whom most of New York fall in the most gay unconditional love.....and the only reason it's unconditional (were talking NY sports here) is because he hasn't given a chance to make it conditional.
The Rangers wouldn't be **** without the best goalie on the planet, ask any one between Hank and Richter. Excuse me. THE KING and Richter. Commentators everywhere call him the King, not just Sam and Joe. He was the King while JD was still here.
Bunch of grown men actually noticed the thread topic. He obviously sucks.
