Devils are a strong opponent. Rangers got beaten by the better team.
yep. it happens. the rangers need to develop their offense going forward. way too easy to stop them and too much pressure on the 'd'. they're still young and very cohesive, so that's good. this hurts, tho. looking forward to a full year of kreider. i don't want them to go crazy with acquisitions. i think the offense will evolve.
I would also like to add despite all of the bi-polarity, it has been enjoyable to read all of your opinions throughout this season. It's great to be surrounded by others who live and die with this team.
Richards has a pass cuz he played very well the whole playoffs, and looked tired.
Gaborik however, just doesn't get the real GAME of hockey, get that guy outta here.
All in all, it was a pretty good season, I expect them to continue to grow for a few seasons yet.
I would like Torts to have a 2nd style of play, perhaps less hard-working, for a period a third of the way from the playoffs, where they are anle to take a break, it's clear they got really tired. They need some sort of fall-back during the season, where they can recharge a bit. Who cares about the 1 seed, take some L's, still make the playoffs, then have the energy to win using your hard style.
