I think a lot of Rangers fans are overreacting, only 1 point out of the playoffs and 3 games in hand, they should make the playoffs easily.
You haven't watched them play. In 20 years of watching the Rangers this is the softest, most disorganized, most uncaring, most heartless group of squids I've ever seen the Rangers ice.
If a team just has holes in terms of talent then I could see, yeah they band together and make the playoffs. Teams that are just plain stupid and just plain don't give a **** like this Rangers team don't go anywhere.
