Wasn't too afraid of the Flyers, even with Nash, especially that we got Nash.
Great that we won't have to worry about him at all, though.
Remember when the Rangers lost the off-season, when Pittsburgh traded Jordan Staal and was going to assemble the Parise-Crosby-Malkin trifecta, and Philly was gonna get Bobby Ryan to make the greatest offensive team ever?
The Rangers just became the prohibitive favorites to win the East. Almost the same team as last year....Minus AA and Dubi + Kreider and Nash
If you're shane doan looking at your options, you see a Flyer team that's lost JVR, Jagr, Carle, and has just now lost Weber, but only added Fedotenko and Schenn....and you see a Rangers team that went to the ECF go on to lose Dubi adn AA but add Kreider and Nash...you have to think to yourself, the better team just got better...the weaker team just got a whole lot weaker, and the Rangers actively want me.
