How confident are you that the rangers will win the #1 seed?

A week ago I'd say I was almost 100% confident. Now I'm having my doubts.

Sometime last month I made a similar poll and 66% of voters thought we'd win the 1 seed.

6 points ahead of Pitt (roaring), 8 ahead of Philly and 10 ahead of the Devils.

I'd say there's an outside shot we end up in 5th/6th/7th if we keep up our issues.

-Lack of offense
-Lack of powerplay
-Lack of consistency
-Biron playing like garbage in a month where we'll need him 3-5 games.

The whole bottom 6 tonight combined for 26 goals all season long. Talk about no secondary scoring whatsoever. Dubinsky wasn't in but he doesn't help anyway.

Throw in the fact that Torts plays Boyle, Prust and Feds more than Hagelin, and it's absolutely bad right about now.

I would say I'm at about 70% confident right now. We need to do some major damage on that 7 game homestand. Thats our chance to salt this conference away. If we stumble thru that, I think we're in serious trouble.

I'm not concerned about the lack of offense, that's OK when your defense doesn't let anything by.

The problem now is the defense is making mistakes EVERY GAME!

It was a matter of time before we hit a "slump". Ain't no thang, this team will get their act together and maintain the #1 seed.

I voted 75% but after thinking about it if I could vote again I would vote 99%

50% sure we win the #1 seed in the conference.

We better damn well win the #1 seed though. The #4 seed could be a death trap versus NJ, and to a lesser extent Philly.

We tend to choke when it matters...25%

We need to step it up or else it will be an early summer. Book it! We want offensive contributions!

Does it matter? If we don't win the President's Cup, then I personally don't care if we come 1 - 8 in the Eastern Conference. But I'm about 95 percent confident we will win the East.

I voted 50%. A loss tonight, coupled with a Pens win would leave them four points back with two season series games still to play. As others have said, a slump was coming at some time, it's just a case now of how long that slump lasts. At least maintain a home ice spot, please.

10% . this team has finally become what it really is a bubble team .
I honestly can't see us winning many games down the stretch with out a PP . All teams have to do is trap us and or keep us to the outside . Our lack of a PP and hr fact that 3/4 of our FW are plugs , goons , grinders and converted D men .
Unless Henke can pitch shut outs the wheels have severely come off . It's been a real nice ride winning all season but now as every orbs team is upping their stakes we have 2 flat tires and clogged fuel injectors .
I can't see Pitt losing more than one or two down the stretch . They are too deep , Jordan Staal is heating up and Cindy on his way back . NYR have BB, Prust , Feds , Andy Garcia daughter , Joanie Mitchell , John Scott and Rupp leading their offense . Even that human pile of excrement Cooke is outscoring all of them combined

What is the name of the trophy they give you for 1s place through 65 G ?

Seriously bad trade deadline, the all Nash our nothing thing rearing it's head .
All I can say is Kreider at some point better bring something to the table in the next couple years .

No opinion and I don't think it matters.

What's important is that the team is healthy and running on all cylinders when the playoffs start.

Then there's a good chance we'll get to the 2nd round at least.

Sorry but you're getting called out specifically on this garbage post. In fairness to you, you are merely the victim and scapegoat of the collective stupidity of the comments and lack of foresight and hindsight in this thread.

The last time we played well was February 14 vs Boston(3-0). Since then all facets of our game have been poor; our record though is 5-4-2. Want to know what a team who "forgot how to win" actually does when they are playing poorly? 2-7-1 (Leafs) 2-6-2 (Sharks).

Teams slump and teams streak, we're going through a slump right now and will get back to our game very soon.

i think we pick it back up. winning first seed doesn't mean winning every game for us, it just means staying the course and winning most of them. if the Rangers aren't first seed, that means that other teams stepped it up and the Rangers couldn't. I think they'll win a game and get some confidence back.
