1993-1994 NY Rangers players

With Alex Kovalev signing to play in the KHL, and Todd Marchant's retirement, there are no longer any players from the 93-94 season playing in the NHL. Thoughts?

As much as I love 94 ... it's time to move on for good. We now have a team that we can all be excited to watch. I'm tired of thinking about 94.

Possibly Modano. But I doubt it.

I had to look it up, but Ray Whitney was in the league in 93-94.

I hate when people say its time to move on from 94. We don't cling to that cup the way its made out to be. Some of the guys on that team did legendary things and hockey was at an all time high. Its ok to still be in love with that year

I think people took Sam Rosen literally when he said "this one will last a lifetime".

It's time to let go of 1994, it was great, nothing will be as great a feeling as that team winning but we need to stop talking about it.

Fans aren't the only one's who harp on this. Can we get through one week on MSG without a reference to the 1994 Stanley Cup Champion Rangers? MSG should replay every playoff game that season one week a year and leave it alone. (not just game 6and 7 against the Devils and game 7 against the Canucks)

It's crazy, the day after they won the cup i had an earth science final exam and now I have two kids. WTF time went so fast. Hopefully they can win won in the next few years. I really don't see anything wrong with thinking about the past.

aka players who appeared in EA's NHL 94
Mike Sillinger played back then. I think I read somewhere Nylander is trying to get a job back in the NHL this year.

technically Recchi retired. otherwise you could add Doug Weight and a few other names to that list.

Totally disagree. It is absolutely time to move on. I am so tired of how every time I turn on MSG, all I see is Richter, Leetch and Messier documentaries, replays of the 94 playoff games, the Greatest Moments of MSG special has a few from 94 in there. All the Original 6 teams put out team history DVD's, we put out a 94 DVD set. How bout a dvd on the team's history? Despite our championship ineptitude, we DO have a long history..it would be nice to see something on that. I mean, I love what happened back then, but enough with it already. 94 feels like it happened yesterday, that's how often the Garden harps on it.

Make me. It's also a fond memory of a different time - I like to wax nostalgic about the days I paid $46 to see the rangers in the cup finals from the greens.

We couldn't win a division for 48 years. Yes, the Rangers have a lot of history, but watching a documentary on it is like watching a documentary on child abuse.

1994 isn't just about it being the year the Rangers won the cup, it's about a really spectacular summer to be a Rangers fan. It's not something you "give up" in the same way you don't give up memories of your first kiss or a vacation to to a tropical island that you'll never go back to again.

Thinking about the OP, I think it's a mark of how great that team was that there were still 2 players from that squad in the NHL last season.

On the other hand, you are right that it is annoying how MSG milks the '94 nostalgia almost daily... Still, it's a factor of the marketing more than the memories.

Haha..this may be true, but I still would like to see stuff on it. I wanna see old grainy footage. I'd like to get a sense of what it was like to be a Rangers fan in the 50's.
