At this time the past 2 seasons..

01-02: 25-21-4-3, 57 pts (53 GP)
02-03: 21-26-6-1, 49 pts (53 GP)
03-04: 19-20-7-4, 49 pts (50 GP)

So.. At this date last season, we had the same amount of points, in 3 more games played.

What's to discuss? Numbers don't lie---unlike the Buffooom from Banf-f-f-f....Sather has transformed this team into a juggernaut in three short years and anybody faced with such documented galactical improvement would be a fool and a nay-sayer....And probably the reason the Rangers have been doing bad... Along with the sticks, the refs, the injuries, the rules, and the board hinges...

Plus- Look at how many games under .500 we were last year.
Plus- We have played three less games to this point then last season

Minus- Still doesn't look like great improvement overall.

I still believe that this year's team is better then the year's before, winning games they would've lost before...but we're also losing games we should've won still. Hard to really say what direction this team is going in. Last year's was bad, end of story. This year's has been great and bad, borderline playoff team. We're in the end of January and we still can't logically say where we're going.

Don't forget the #1 reason: The fans booing. We are not providing a nurturing environment to raise...err, cheer our little Rangers.

that's so sad, that people have become so deperate for a positive that we actually would be pleased to be a .500 team

It would be interesting to compare where the other 8th spot candidtates were at this time last year too. Seems like MTL, BOS and NYI are all playing a lot better than last year. Atlanta obviously is. FLA and BUF are a lot closer to us than they were last year too.

Discuss?

don't really understand. Fact, the Rangers are still out of a playoff spot. They've had every opportunity to put themselves into a respectible position, but each time have failed. No different from the last 6 seasons...they remain within striking distance of that #8 playoff spot throughout most of the season, but lose the critical games to get into that spot and solidify it. Those two losses to Boston were a killer that created a situation whereby Boston may not be competing for that 8th spot anymore and may soon be out of reach for the Rangers. Losing to Washington was even more of a joke, especially considering the teams coming up. It's a friggin' joke, and I am so afraid they get outworked by a hustling Buffalo team that they embarass themselves at home, once again. At least they'll sell a lot of 22 oz and 64 oz beers, I ain't got nuttin' else to go on....

The bright side? Yea, the bright side. That would be the end of the Hockey season and the start of Baseball.

the only reason why there is any difference is because we have lost more games in OT, not because we won more...

last year: wins=21, loses=27 (26+1), difference= -6
this year: wins=19, loses=24 (20+4), difference= -5

I wanna take all the optimistic people and smack them silly.


There is little or nothing to get happy about with this team anymore.....just accept it and move on.
