Worst case scenario makes me think we totally implode even further and end up with a lottery pick headed to Columbus and we are stuck with Nash playing inconsistent and the oldest. 31 year old on earth Brad Richards .
Torts has said that the lockout has no bearing as to why the Rangers are playing like **** when there are 29 other teams that were in the similar position the Rangers are in.
Bottom six this, bottom six that. At the end of the day, the Rangers are now dead last in GF in the conference and are 28th in the league in GF. That **** shouldn't fly when we have close to $22 million locked up in 3 supposed offensive juggernauts.
People are estimating 53 points will be needed to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference....more than that in the Western Conference, where they've had more three point games.
That means the Rangers need 25 points in their last 21 games....like perhaps 11-7-3 or so. If the Rangers can't do that, they don't deserve to make the playoffs. It would be nice if they got started in the right direction tonight.
I don,t know why you are hung up on the Columbus draft pick. That trade was made last year and the Rangers got a superstar in Rick Nash.
Columbus getting a high draft pick because of the Nash trade would really stink for us. So many people here say the Rangers can't draft a superstar picking in the middle of the first round every year, and to finally get a high draft pick and lose it...jeesh.
And for me, year to date Nash has been more of a part-time superstar. For some stretches of games yes, for other stretches of games no.
