This team is really becoming what I expected it to be. And quicker than I expected it to take.

If this team is a lottery team without Lundqvist, why are we 3-0 with Biron in net?
3-0 with a >1.50 GAA and a top notch Sv. %.
I remember being against singing Biron a few years back...I REALLY wanted Johan Hedberg (I'd still take him, always been one of my favorite goalies). But MB has been HUGE for this team. I honestly think that, without him, this team doesn't make the playoffs last year. His ability to come in near flawlessly for a goaltender like Lundqvist is remarkable. All at $875K, too.

I feel in the grand scheme of the season this will be a forgettable game, but there's a lot of great things to take from it.
Arty is out of his slump, IMO. Stepan is making me eat crow after saying he was sophomore slumping hard. MDZ looked good. Girardi is a trooper. Gabby with 2 goals. Really, everything that SHOULD go right is going right.
We're a good hockey team. Also gotta feel really good for Biron, I can't fathom if there's people in the world who don't like him. Such a nice dude.
Well Biron is much like another Marty in style and puckhandling ability. Obviously there is a gap in ability but the styles are the same.
For the Rangers it is a game they should win but the young American kids on this team in particular lately have been looking really solid. Add Miller and Kreider to the mix in a couple years and who knows. Its really just Dubinsky now that needs a jumpstart.
Love the progress that MDZ has made. Stepan is looking like a long-time productive center and has meshed nicely with Gaborik. Anisimov looks good on the wing. McDonagh looks like a future all-star. Biron is the perfect support to Hank.
