No, no. I think "desperate" is a perfect word for it. Over the course of 70 years as a franchise, 2 jerseys hung in the rafters. In the last few years, they've roped pretty much every jersey they could upstairs. Wheres the consistency? Whats the criteria? Im baffled by it.

Theres plenty of explanations for it, but the #1 reason is a distraction. Basically up until this season, the franchise did everything possible to distract their fans from the present - because the present stunk. Thats why 1994 continues to get shoved down the fans throats, and these dog and pony shows celebrating great moments from decades ago have been so prevalent recently.

Thankfully, we have a good team now and dont have to keep reliving the past.

Then yes. Giacomin never won a cup with NYR. Lundqvist will in all likelihood be the best goaltender in the history of an original 6 franchise. That is absolutely worth a number retiring.
So your saying Lundqvist is better then Patrick Roy?

I think he finishes out his career in New York, and gets his number raised, regardless of hardware.

He'll probably have a few vezinas, jennings and maybe a hart in there, though.

I think he is referring to NYR as AN 06 franchise. not of all 06's

I changed my mind. Henrik Lundqvist sucks.
