Hello, frequent reader but very occasional poster (and NYR fan) here. I read all the topics about off season signings, how it is going to affect the NYR game, if Staal is going to be a impact D this season, if Mara or Malik should be replaced and, ahhhh, the cap issue of course .
But I think one the most important thing for the next season is going to be mental stability of this team and individual players because we will begin the season with completely different expectations. Other teams know this and their play agains NYR is going to change. I am very happy with Shanny signings because, maybe, he is not the fastest player but he will definetely help young guys to calm down their game. I am also expecting VERY good season from JJ! He likes NY and playing for this team, finally is healthy and likes this type of challenge. It should be very exciting to watch him this year!
Finally, I only hope that they don´t see themselves at least as a EC finalist allready (and I can see as much as possible games here in Europe).
