Rangers-Best team in the east since trading deadline

Quote:
The Rangers are 12-2-3 since the Feb. 27 trade deadline, a record that is better than Buffalo's, better than Ottawa's, better than Pittsburgh's. Fact is, in playing at a .794 winning percentage over that span, the Rangers have the best record in the East
Quote:
It's one more victory for the Rangers, who were out of a playoff berth by seven points on Feb. 8 and were in 12th place, four points out, before facing the Islanders at the Garden on March 5. That, of course, was the opener of what became a memorable home-and-home sweep in which Rick DiPietro made 56 saves for the Isles in the first one and Chris Simon lost his mind in the second one

Tom Renney for President and Sean Avery for Secretary of Defense

When does Dolan give Slats a second lifetime contract?

I called out the Rangers at the deadline saying they needed 91 points in 19 remaining games to be a PO team. They did this in only 16 games!
I wonder if the team actually read the thread in the dressing room and decided to be difficult and start a winning streak and playing up to par capacity.
Cause 91 points still might be the magic number - but 92 or 93 definitely is.
Most of the know it alls here actually said season over and a whole bunch of other things during this span.

So for all you pathetic unfaithful "non-believers" that gave up way too early - I am contemplating starting a new thread with all your negative expert opinions "quoted" writing off this season.

NOT

Peace

If we do head into the playoffs like I believe we will now this looks to be quite a different team than the one that entered last year. Lundqvist is healthy--we can depend on more than one line for scoring. Steadier on defense and grittier overall. Not banged up and with a lot more confidence going in on a winning streak than losing your last 7 games. Other than Ottawa and Buffalo the other teams don't scare me very much.

We are definately peaking at the right time this season.

Yes....but I'm just talking on the topic of the deadline. Henrik is in his own class

Not only did it give us Avery but, for the most part, allowed us to move Matt Cullen down to a third line after he was an utter disaster as our 2nd C (to no surprise)

The Paul Mara for Adam Ward trade was jsut as big..Not only is Mara a better D-man, it got rid of a player that was poisioning the club/locker-room while on the ice giving a good impression of a cigar-store Indian...

And the Bourett deal may turn out to be better then both someday...

Sather needs to be commended...

If the Rangers win the Cup, will Sather be forgiven for the 4 years of Horrible Hockey?

and both Mara and Avery are 27 years old. Ward was 33 and J Ward was also 27 but not as much skill but he did try. I can see Hollweg on the move so a player like Byers or Korpikoski can make the team.

Will Sather be forgiven?

I will always maintain that Sather should not have started the 2005/2006 season. If the Rangers won, I'd be more than grateful and would give him credit, but it wouldn't change how I felt to start last season.

When Bettman hands the cup to Jagr, all is forgiven.

But we all know that the Rangers are a Kingdom under Henrik the Great (who also holds the post of Minister of Defense), so Renney would be Prime Minister, Jagr Minister of Offense, and Avery Minister of War!
