I can't believe we haven't even hit the all-star break yet and the only thing positive I can think about is the draft in June. If they go down again tonight against the Sabres (again) I will fully start rooting for an all out full-fledged meltdown. I know it has already begun, but I know if they win tonight ,I will just start hoping for the unrealsitics chance that they go 19-11-0 over the last 30 and finish with the 87 points that should get them in as the 8th seed. If they lose, then its "Bring on the draft and move as many out before the trade deadline comes."
Looking forward, I hope (if its all a lost casue again tonight) that we finish in a position to get a top 5 pick.
I'm hoping for someone like Cam Barker (D) Medicine Hat, Mike Green (D) Saskatoon or Rostislav Olesz, (C) Vitkovice (czech rep).
Since everything else in Rangerland has gone to pot, anyone else thinking of the draft yet??
Isnt it sad that the only thing a ranger fan has to look forward to all year is the entry draft. And then each year we draft players that are said to be future conerstones of the organization. And then each year they are traded before their prime for veterans that do not fill the needs of the team. And then each year we lose. And then the next year we go through it all again. Hockey is different here....
:mad: :mad: :mad:
Its sad, I have lost so much hope that i really dont care if we win or lose anymore. That is a big difference to when I was a young kid in the mid nineties, praying each night that we would win and then waking each morning, with eager anticpation to see whether we had won.
Yeah, I'm thinking that #1 pick is burning a hole in the Jackass' pockets.
It's gonna be a loooooong February, yet again
The draft info - Mike Green - Solid on both ends. Size, toughness, speed, passing skills. Top ten in the draft. Boris Valabik - 6'6 Slovak D-man is North American when he's on the ice. Nasty, good slapshot, will draw comparisons to Chara, plus we took Baranka in round 2 last year, good eventual tandem.
If this ship really sinks badly we could end up in the top 5, it's not impossible for this bunch, even if SLATS is replaced.Cam Barker, maybe Malkin or Olesz could be possible. Let's see just how bad they suck first :p
