Oh yes I know this, if I would have to cut off my own leg just to win the series I would (I prob woudnt because I need my leg but it sounds good and I love my rangers )I hope and pray we have a miracle and turn this series around.
Keep your leg dude... as devastating as the loss tonight was, these players are all still millionaires
and go where? free agents want to come here, its just we have signed bad FA's...He loves it here...
I'm not sure what gives you that impression, but the reason we have Redden can be attributed to a lot of other defenseman we wanted going elsewhere. Commodore, Hainsey, Campbell, Orpik are just a few that opted to go elsewhere or re-sign that I know Sather at least expressed mild interest in.
I would be devastated I ****ing love him to death, but at the same time happy for him, if hes moved I'm sure he would be on a championship caliber team and win a cup.. But this off season would you be surprised if Hank wants a change.
Sorry if you guys don't like this thread, but I'm pist off and just ****ing mad right now even if they both mean the same **** that I can say any thing right now.
I hear you man, but IMO you are too dramatic right now. This team had VERY GOOD team statistics this year where it could compete for a cup.
4th least goals against in the whole NHL
had the 4th best Goal differential in the whole NHL
11th most goals scored in the whole NHL
This is good enough for a team to compete this year. The interesting part is this is a fairly young team that could get better and better. Hank is a god to the fans where he does no wrong. He is in a real good situation to compete for a cup in the next few years.
I would be devastated as I grew up watching the Rangers play with Lundqvist. At the same time I would be happy for him because he might genuinely have a chance at the cup. He's definitely one of the best goaltenders in the NHL and I think we take advantage of that.
I didn't see the game, but I doubt it was bad enough to make Hank want to leave. He's dealt with much worse and he loves New York and this team. The team is also on the definitely upswing and even though we're all a little doom and gloom you can't ignore that.
Hank will be a lifelong Ranger unless he's past his prime and cupless and we trade him to a contender to get him a cup, Hasek-style.
He's this generation's Gump Worsley. Hell of a goalie but played on the Rangers when the team around him was terrible. Retired without getting to the Cup finals once even in the Original 6 era. I just feel so bad for him.
What are you talking about? Worsley won four cups with the Habs after the Rangers traded him for advocating to start a players union.
This isn't David Wright, or Jose Reyes with the Mets. The Rangers aren't a horrible team, and I think they are much closer to being a top teir team, than at any point in Henrik's career so far. I'm sure he wants to be a part of it.
This will be a very unpopular opinion, but I think it would behoove the NYR to deal Hank while he's in his prime. This team is stuck in a vicious cycle (or is it circle?) of finishing in the middle of the pack and not getting top level talent in the draft. They need to acquire 1st-line talent and Hank is the chip. I know 95% of you don't want to hear it, I'm sorry.
He lives in NYC, which he seems to genuinely love. He's making top dollar, and knows he'll continue to do so. He plays on a team that has tons more visibility overseas than just about anyone else. for all MSG's problems, he also plays on a team that will spend right to the cap every year, and is just one good GM away from a Cup.
