Can we change the smiley code of this from ": dunno :" to ": sather :" ? It'd be more appropriate...

A few European Rangers had never heard of Lombardi and one cracked, "I guess this means we're officially losers now."
Funny, yet sad at the same time. Way to go Glen!

So much for inspiration - even Sather admitted yesterday that the time for such things, for massaging egos or tearing into players, is over.
Seems like I've heard this before...maybe from Muckler/Low. It always come to this point, Coach yells at team and gets no results, GM yells at team and gets no results, Coach/GM give up and don't know what to do to players who consistently make mistakes and don't live up to their potential. The names and faces might change, but just like the movie, Groundhog's Day, it just keeps repeating itself!

Thanks Melrose...

I had tried several different renditions of a post saying what you said, but they all sounded lame. You said what I was trying to post.

Melrose-- Even I felt the same way when reading that quote about them officially being losers now...Just another blow to their "fragile" psyche...Then I think of the puny and heartless efforts they put forth this year and my sadness and sympathy evaporates to the number of goals Jan Hlavac has scored in the past 28 games...

Another quote that really got me was "Almost certainly, the Rangers will extend their franchise record to seven straight seasons out of the playoffs. That's something Martin Rucinsky said was inconceivable at the start of the season. " ....Not to pick on Rucinsky who has been one of the most consistent (in a good way) Rangers, but like everybody else, he was expecting an easy road to the POs just because of the names on the roster..

Eh, none of this means a hill of beans anymore..All that matters is the sell off which Sather seems to be fighting...WOuld be nice if the Habs put everybody out of their misery tonight..

But, on the bright side, Maladog is coming back tonight...

Did Anybody find this amusing.

"Grasping at a motivational straw on the eve of a theoretically important game against Montreal tonight at the Garden, Sather had some comments posted on a locker room message board attributed to Vince Lombardi, who was identified on the taped sheet of paper as a man "who became famous for making winners of losers."



If I had read that on the locker room board I would have owndered if he (sather) was calling the team losers.

More like "Bring out your Dead, Bring out your Dead"!!!..... with the bloated, tomatoe-faced cretin replying "I'n not dead" and "I'm getting bett-er" after each meaningless win!!

Honestly, come to think of it,the entire scene could be a great analogy for what Ranger fans want to do with this rotting, decomposing team and the GM right now..

I might setup tonight on the couch, put the Holy Grail on DVD and listen to the game. That sound bite would make an awesome clip at Garden just before introducing the Rags
