a lot of the team wins losses and points records are affected by the no ties.

This is where the fun starts, the second half is tough.

What's interesting is how good of a start that 96 team got off to. Time has really forgotten them.

We are actually 2/3 of the way through the season...hopefully we can just play well and stay healthy, thats all I want.

IMO the Rangers have one of the fairer backstretches in the Eastern Conference.

- Longest Olympic Break in East (18 Days)
- 4 Back to Back games (Least amount in East)
- 1 of only 2 teams to have a 4 day rest period. (Atlanta)
- Games vs. tough teams, but not nearly as condensed a schedule than other teams in the East.

I know, was making a general statement that the second half is tough.

This part is similar to August in baseball. You're not quite in a stretch run yet, but the little injuries and bruises are felt.

Rangers have an easier schedule than most, but they also lose more players than most (if not all).

Doesn't this seem like the longest season ever? Hehehe...I feel like I'm at war or something. Guess I've become too acustomed to not having much to think about in regards to hockey around this time of year. I've become so used to losing with this team, I feel an absurd sense of loss over not being at least in the running for a lottery pick...hehehehe. It's been a long but rewarding season.

Well losing 3 weeks will do that.

But for the last 8 years we've been talking draft pick and prospects by this point.

Instead no we're debating the value of Jagr v. Lundy and playoff strategies.

I'm really surprised that the Rangers' Save % Record is held by Mike Dunham.

That team was great right up until the ill-fated Norstrom/Laperrier/Ferraro for Churla/McSorley/Kurri, I believe.
To this day, that trade still rankles me.

For the last 8 years, all we heard was how "lucky" the Rangers are to play all those games in the beginning, so that the players have plenty of time to rest for the playoffs. The playoffs that never came.
FINALLY, this year all of those games played early in the year seem to have a payoff (not as many back-to-backs, the rest period, etc...).

Excellent point TB, the schedule will pay dividends for us this year I think.

That was def. a turning point.

I think if the Rangers had landed Gretzky that season and maybe had managed to land Otto in the offseason they would have had a fighting chance.

The 95-96 season just derailed. It was Richter's injury, those moves, it just came apart. Messier got hurt towards the end of the season, Verbeek got hurt.

Until those injuries Messier was right at the door for another 50 goal season and he probably would have set the Rangers single season point record. Verbeek was also on pace for close to 50 goals.

Up until the deadline I thought (if healthy) the team stood a chance at doing something. After the deadline I just knew they were dead in the water.

Exactly.
We had two great well functioned lines that year.

Graves-Messier-Verbeek
Robitaille-Ferraro-Kovalev

We traded away Ferraro and the 2nd line was never the same.
Also one big reason to why that year did not end succesfully was the injury to Verbeek.

The Ferraro trade was a big loss, as it crippled the second line. The Verbeek injury was an unforseen thing, but that dumb trade helped ruin the season.
