2012 Rangers=2009 Bruins?

Before the playoffs started I was concerned that our fate would end up like the 2009 Bruins.
Consider:

-2007 Bruins miss playoffs (we missed in 2010)
-2008 Bruins make playoffs as number 8 seed, lose round 1
(2011 we were eight seed, lose round 1)
-2009 Bruins stun everybody and finish 1 in the conference. They do it based on goaltending, heart, and defense.
-Their problem is they lack enough top 6 six skill AND their best scorer is a soft choker in Phil Kessel.
(Gaborik)
-They lose to a six seed in Carolina (we lose to six seed NJ).

I was really worried that we would do likewise...that our lack of scoring could allow a lower seed to break through.

The Bruins struggled in 2010, but rebounded excellent and made it worthwhile in 2011.

I really hope we follow their arc LESS 2010!
To do so I believe like Boston we must get rid of our soft, over-rated sniper in Gaborik as they did with Kessel.

Oh god. Please don't let this team pull a 2010 Bruins next year. That had to be so depressing.

Ofcourse, 2011 made it all better, but 2010 was probably one of the biggest choke jobs in history.

I'd go through it 3 times over if it meant a Cup afterwards.

That's what we all want at the end. But that team blew a 3-0 lead in the series, and a 3-0 lead in Game 7 at home. A big Fail.

But they did have a great run last year. Thomas was a great story, and they really came together at the right time.

Weren't the 2009 Bruins one of the highest scoring teams in the league? Like top 5?

And they followed the trend of playing in WC and winning the cup the next season. Pitt, Chicago then Boston. We're next Most of the team is just getting started.. the next few seasons look incredibly bright for our young team.

I think the journey is more similar to the Anaheim Ducks

See this thread where I assess about the Rangers future and the path to a being a champion (alot of vids of the ups and downs)

Jeff Gorton also played a part in assembling the Bruins team that won the Cup.

Jeff Gorton is now doing a great job with our Rangers.

I believe he is also the one who got Richards signed. If i recall correctly.

He runs the draft with Gordie Clark. He's in on trades, and FA signings.

IMO, he's the eventual sussesor to Sather when he feels he wants to step away from the GM role. I believe Gorton will take over as acting GM and Sather will retain the position of President.

But after a Cup is won. Sather won't stop until we win that Cup.

If you look at the scores even from the 2007 Ducks, they had a few games where they scored 4+ but almost every game was 3-2 or 2-1. They didn't score that much. Looked very similar to our scores this year.

I would have thought all of the ridiculous 94 comparisons this year (esp in the series vs NJ) would have finally gotten people to stop trying to use the past to determine the future.

The Rangers have a bright future for sure, but their destiney is all in their own hands and is 100% independent of what the '09 Bruins did.

SSM your point about Gorton is a good one.

I believe if Gorton does eventually take the reigns, we will be in good hands.

I wish the Rangers can build their own legacy, where teams will look upon us on how to build rosters.

The similarities are scary. I've had a feeling this whole season that Gaborik wouldn't be a top player when it counts. He is just too soft for this team. I would like to trade him for a more skillful winger. Imagine if we could sign Parise AND trade Gaborik for someone like Bobby Ryan...
