Big win today. Good to see the Rangers confidence is high.

Too bad Hank couldn't have been rewarded with the shutout! Cally nearly had a hatty with that empty net and that would have been cool too.

Great seeing the Devs meltdown today, but ya can't gloat too hard... they could have our number and the last laugh in the season finale.

... But do yourselves a favor and watch highlights of today's game on mute synced with the Benny Hill theme playing. I had to wipe away tears. lol

This discussion about Gabby's name on the Cup reminds me of the "we want the Cup" chants during the first game with Drury/Gomez. Ridiculously premature. Let's stick with hoping they sneak into the playoffs, eh?

Hopefully we don't have to care about the last game, if Winnipeg loses tomorrow in relgulation and we beat florida, we're in.

No excuses for not beating Florida. A good team takes care of the Panthers and quickly.

It happened when the Giants beat the Texas Rangers. Bengie Molina was guaranteed a ring no matter what.

So in baseball if you're traded away you still get a ring if your old team wins?

That's pretty stupid. I can just picture that.. the closer blows the save in game 7 of the world series and still gets a ring for sucking (which is probably why he got traded in the first place).

I'm actually calling that the Jets will stick it out and ottawa will starting sinking...

Isles 6th
Rangers 7th
Jets 8th

Hoping that Boston continues to win and sticks in 2nd place... Do NOT want to go up against MTL, even though theyve been playing like garbage recently

Loving it right now the lines are working like magic and i think its only getting better. The first line with Nash and Clowe resembles Bostons first line in some ways. Brassard has hot wheels and is hard on the puck i like it. Zucc has been unreal has helped Richards a lot in gaining some offensive confidence. Obviously Stepan line has been a joy to watch. Everyone, i mean John Moore looks like Mcd out there. Anyway im going to bet this team to win the Cup i havent seen them look this good in any year. I honestly dont care what people say i think there connecting at the right time and will blow teams away come PO. I dont care who we play will beat them. Factor in a possible return of Staal and ive got no issues.

Until we get exposed in the playoffs, sure. Don't say I didn't tell you so. I'm starting to think Brad Richas would score 70 points a year on any other team.

I am one of Torts biggest detractors but none of Richards' struggles this year have anything to do with him. Richards just simply played like crap for the vast majority of this season.

Some quotes from Bjurman:
"Question: What do you think of NJD's coach being kicked out of the game? Strålman ("looks around the dressing room"): It is odd that that doesn't happen to us more often"

"Question: What do you think of Richards hat-trick? Strålman: It could have been the ugliest hat-trick in the history of the league."
[I personally think the ugliest hat-trick of the history of the league MUST belong to Fabian Brunnström, check out his highlites at nhl.com and the first three goals of his career (which came in his first game)]

Yes and no, I do not fault Torts for Richards crappy play.

But we are making it so easy for ourselves if we just think that Richards turned crap over night.

Brad Richards is the -- exact -- same player who paced 67 pts (with 34 pts on the PP) and an minus 33 over 82 games despite playing on a top PP (Tampa was 5th in the league) and with tremendous linemates for Tampa in 07/08 (all numbers what is what he was on pace for over 82 games).

And the exact same player who scored 91 pts three years ago and paced over a PPG two years ago (playing with those youngs studs at his wing and on a functioning (read: coached) PP).

My point is just, if we are not happy with Richards, we need to scout better. Cause this is the player we signed. We have not provided him with the right playing partners on the PP, hence he has not scored many pts, hence his confidence has gone awol, and 1 + 1 + 1 gives us what we have today. Its as simple as that. I don't know how many times I've seen him over his career and thought like "yikes he scores alot of pts but is not the most talented hockey player thats for sure", and posted at this place about just that. I was very concerned before we got him, and when he plays like expected, so many goes like "he was top 3 center in the league now lost everything".

The secret is out Loffen, you went to the woods of Norway to practice black magic and summon the god in charge of Ranger goals. Good thing you're back, we missed you brothaman.

Regardless of the idiotic, premature cup talk, but if they did miraculously win, I don't want to see Gabby's name on the cup. Gaborik was my favorite player while here, but it's wrong. He's on another team and isn't a part of this success.

In my opinion, we don't make the playoffs if he's still here anyway.
