What the guy above me said. Pretty much sums up my feelings. Although Id prefer a Vezina for Henrik over just about anything else. The guy has been the backbone of this team for a long time. IMO if he continues to play the way he has until the end of his career hopefully years down the road a Vezina or two would be nice on the road to the HHOF.

Also on a side note, it would be nice for Del Zotto to lead the league in +- especially when his partner for a while now has been Anton Stralman, not exactly a noted defensive stalwart. Not like he was playing with Staal or anything. Gabby for the Rocket Richard would be great. Any maybe something, anything to get Dan Girardi some well deserved praise for being a top 10 NHL defenseman this season logging over 27 minutes of ice time per night. (even the lady byng would be good)

My top choices would probably be... (I'm ignoring the playoffs here)

Hank winning the Vezina, and overall success for him. Especially shutouts makes me happy for him.
Finishing first in the East or at least the division (beating the Pens as much as possible)
Gaborik for the RR.

A Hart trophy would be huge, but I can't imagine it going to any Ranger in the forseeable future.
Never cared about individual success.

Winning the cup is all I want. The rest...meh

callahan as an all-star, lundqvist getting a vezina.

away from the rangers, i'm a really big fan of linus omark playing in edmonton's system and devante smith-pelly in anaheim. i'd love to see those guys pan out into big time players.

Just a future goal...Id like to see Callahan wear the C for Team USA in the 2014 olympics, I think he deserves it over Parise. Callahan is Captain America, he is everything a young American hockey player should strive to be like on and off the ice.

....If bettman allows nhl players to play lol. A whole other debate for another time.

This could very well be a major sticking-point for the PA's agreement to the new CBA. I'd reckon Bettman would sign off on it, and point to the PA agreeing to lesser % of revenue or what not in exchange for NHL participation in Sochi.

exactly, he is only against because of the time zone difference and games being on here when not many would be able to watch. every player wants the chance to be able to win a gold medal for their respective countries and for the players it is a major issue im sure they dont wanna budge on that.

The obvious Vezina for Lundqvist.

Gaborik to lead the league in goals.

Continuous growth of our kids, and good health to everyone on the roster.

Devils to miss the playoffs.

Sharks winning the West and Cup, if not the Rangers.

Agree. Those individual trophies don't really mean ****. The cup is what you want. Whatever trophies will follow.

For those who weren't around in '94--that was one fantastic- but also if you were a Ranger fan--an unforgettable year. You can't count on next year or the year after--when you're a contending team you have to go for it and you not only have to be good you have to be lucky. Having player depth is one way of keeping luck on your side. This Rangers team has a lot going for it right now--but this is only December--there's still a long way to go. I like this team though and I like its depth and I like the way our AHL guys are plugging holes when someone goes down.

In addition to winning the cup, Vezina for Henke, the first of several, so he can shut all the Devils fans up who say his pads are too big, and that he never has to go down to make hard saves.
