If the team can keep this up, we'll be dangerous to anyone.

Lundqvist is on, our defense looks focused, our offense delivers.

Lundqvist is + 6.022 x 1023

But Gomez is prolly the most dangerous right now

I think it's really hard to pick a single Ranger as being the best. Everyone went out there and played for the most part.

Jagr, Gomez, Drury, Staal, Cally, Dubi, Avery, Toots, Girardi and of course Lundqvist.

There are more but then I would just be naming the whole team.

My picks too but all Rangers were great in this series. Gomez was an offensive force. Remember last year all we pretty much had was Jagr......

Everyone delivered and did what they were supposed to. As you've said, it's hard to pick out any specific player when everyone played so solid.

Lundy, Jagr, Gomez, and Staal. Drury, Dubi, Mara, and Cally get honorable mentions.

Great post. This was very much a team effort. It seemed like every game there was someone new stepping up. Lundqvist was great and outplayed Brodeur by a wide margin IMO. Jagr led the team with 8 points and Gomez had 7. Drury had 2 goals in the last 2 games, getting the game winner last night. Staal was a force the whole series. Girardi was a solid and played a pretty physical series. Cally was a beast on the forecheck, hitting a Devil every chance he got. It just goes on and on. If not for some lucky bounces for the Devils this series would have been over in four and last nights game would have been an absolute blowout. On to the next round! Let's Go Rangers!!!!

Staal when out there with Rosizval is absolutely a number one dman b/c of the great puck movement by #3. This gives Staal half a second more and when he has that he's very good.

I think Gomez, Dubinsky, Callahan and Drury are the key offensive differences from last year's PO run. The Callahan line was awesome last night in all sorts of critical moments.

Well..we had a first line that can do it, and that did do it.

Other than that, yeah. Nyls and Straks were just as important as Jags and Henrik last year.

They won the series because of:

Avery

Lundqvist

Callahan

In that order imo. Avery got into the Devils heads, every single one of them, and the whole Rangers team fed off of his energy. Henrik outplayed Brodeur in every aspect, and Callahan made so much happen it's ridiculous. That shift last night where he single-handedly held the puck on the boards in the Devils zone for close to a minute has pretty much convinced me to buy a Callahan jersey. LOVE that kid.

agreed, very well put..


remember when we wanted 3 or 4 lines out of this team? well we got it..

that is impressive.. wow.. even the fourth line holds its own..

every single player played well. there were no goats.. we need this to continue but also for some STARs to take over too.. i know it's asking for a lot, or nit-picking but IMO that's how a team wins it all.. firing on all cylinders, great goaltending and a/some star(s).

I think everyone played great, and no one had a bad series. Gomez and Jagr certainly played well, but I don't think either exceeded my expectations for them. Same with Lundqvist. But I two people did surprise me and exceed my expectations:

Callahan He was the most physical Ranger and never gave up on any play. His intensity was simply awesome.

Staal We've been spoiled this year he has exceeded all expectations all along. But I think in this series he got better every game and showed a new level of play in game 4 & 5. Just amazing how poised he was and how he continued to make flawless plays despite the high pressure and intensity from the Devils.


To be fair, I'll pick two under-performers. Neither played bad, but I hope they can raise their game for the next series:

Hollweg This might be mainly because his time on ice was even lower than normal (5:42 avg), but I would have liked to see him contribute more physically. This is probably an unfair complaint because I'm sure his instructions were to be on a short leash, but perhaps with a few more minutes a game he could have roughed it up more. His line did forecheck as well as any line in the limited time they got.

Dawes I didn't notice signs of nervousness, and he did seem to have good intensity. He played physical and didn't make many mistakes. But he wasn't very noticeable. This is probably a tribute to the Devil's solid defensive play most of the time. I hope next series he can find the open areas, have more consistent intensity and shine more offensively.

1)Jagr
1)Staal
2)Lundqvist
2)Avery
2)Gomez

i couldnt find enough differentiation in the impact of those players to separate them beyond 1/2. Drury had a good series, but his faceoff performance really angered me.

Jagr and Gomez were the standouts to me, but everyone mentioned in the thread played extremely well
