Grantland: How Did The Rangers Get Here

Neat little article about the Rangers and their "unconventional" makeup:

So was Stralman

He picks 2 players as 'trade examples' and decides to go with 2 UFA's

you misspelled a player's name while attempting to point out the invalidity of an article and shame the author.
are you to be taken seriously?

He wasn't trying on this, for the same reason why he hasn't posted in an abnormally long time. He's waiting to post the brutal Habs eulogy that he supposedly has prepared.

We got here because we're one of the best teams in the league. We really are.

Insane depth, insane speed, best goalie in the league, best defensive defense in the league, best PK in the league.

This is an elite hockey team.

I feel like all I've read since the Nash trade is how flawed this team is and we will never win anything

Honestly, I wish that Slats had taken one more chance to upgrade this team. Not sure where, I just think one more player could've made us better equipped for the Finals. Maybe add Miller or Fast to upgrade on Stralman, Pouliot or Brassard. All of them did a fine job, but somewhere in the top-4 or the top-9, I wish we made a nice upgrade to make us stronger.

He did make that upgrade when he traded Cally for MSL. MSL, although much older than Cally is more of a threat offensively. I'd even say he's a better leader on the ice than Cally, and even plays just as well as Cally did on the pk

Bill didn't write the article. It's a good read.

The ending of dark ages was neither due to the salary cap nor Lundqvist.

The cap and Lundqvist are the alpha and omega of the NYR paradigm shift. Everything else is filler.

In fact, if they cap was not required and Lundqvist wasn't drafted while the Rangers still made every single transaction they did from 2006 (everything from personal, players, or changing the garden food items), this team and I would have been in golf season a long time ago.
