Playoffs?

MAGIC NUMBER is approximately 90 points in the standings. Rangers need 36 points and they have 30 games to do it....we have to go about 18-12 or better in the finals 30 games...will we do it?

Nothing seems to show me that we will go on a great run anytime soon, and we have been inconsistent all year.

My answer? Nope. We will miss the post season.


BTW next 3 games:

DET, NJ, TB

If we lose 2 of those 3 games then we have to go 17-10 in the final 27 games.

They're still..

in the thick of things. Pretty much where I thought they'd be to start the season. This is a streaky team. They can win four in a row and be back in the 8th spot. That's how close this race is, and some of the teams ahead of them are capable of losing a couple. The Isles are playing well, but have shown an ability to lose more than their share. Same with PITT and others. It's almost like the least bad team will get in.

Playoffs? Don't talk to me about Playoffs..you kidding me? Playoffs? I just want to win a game!

Seriously, I don't think so. This team is way too inconsistent, too many teams around us are picking up points and in spite of having games-in-hand, they will just go to waste. Even if we make a run, I don't see Sather being able to pick up a key cog for a playoff run (although it wouldn't be worth it if it meant giving up one of our star prospects).

I say no right now..then again that could change. Proof of how inconsistent they truly are.

This team is just Annoying to cheer for sometimes...They have a team that SHOULD make the Playoffs. But I really just dont see it happening.

Buyers or Sellers at the Deadline?

Sellers. I Just don't see how this team can win with getting a number 2 center. I dont think one guy can change they way we are playing. Unless they called up a few kids and did a nice lil face lift. Lets Sell bring up some kids let them get a real taste of hockey. Draft a High centermen or sign one if the off season and hope they learn from this one...... Hahahah

We'd rather be in the playoffs as well instead of the Pens (or anyteam) but that doesn't look like it will happen. Enjoy the playoffs again while we watch from the sidelines.

Frankly, if the Pens make playoffs, the NHL management will have an orgy grooving off Crosby... and nobody wants that.

No way. The Pens are one of the most entertaining teams to watch & deserve to make it.

Im Hoping sellers as well, but just have a Gut feeling Sather and Company will try to be Buyers. Thus giving up one of our Good Prospects. What would even hurt more is if we did end up doing that, NOT make the Playoffs, then having that guy walk in the Offseason.

How much will Sather listen to Maloney about sticking with the Youth? Or will he still try to Fetch that "missing piece"? Just some curious questions...

At this point I keep thinking is that the Lightning and the Penguins just cannot keep playing at this pace as of late.

Whether or not the Rangers can play .500 remains to be seen.

Hasn't that been what's been said for 3 years now with nothing close to that?
I'm taking a wait and see approach.

I'm with Fletch, it's too early to tell with this streaky team. Every team they are battling is in the same boat as them, it's going to come down to who gets hot and who gets cold.

This is a hard yes or no question. It's more like percentages based around a lot of What If's.

That really reminds me of 97-lockout.

Not to be the typical NY sports fan thinking the last game was the most important of the season, but past two Ranger games have given me little reason to believe theyll make the playoffs, at least as currently constructed. But if they make a move in say, two weeks, it may be too late because the more teams they are behind in the standings, the less likely they are to get the 8th spot. You've gotta take, at the very least, 2 points in 2 games against teams you are in direct competion with for a playoff berth if you are to be considered a serious threat.
