IMO, a much more pertinent question would be how well do you think the Rangers would do if they made the playoffs.
I want to know if people think the rangers will make the playoffs or not. that question is entirely different.
Last month I thought the Rangers would make the playoffs but it seemed 60% of the boards were calling for tanking and how we won't make the playoffs (Which I guess turned out to be 52.87%). It should be interesting to see how flaky some people are on this board.
Yes, they will make the playoffs. I've been saying it from the start of the season, to the slump where most demanded the Rangers to tank, and to now. There's no way we miss it with Lundqvist and Gaborik.
If Henrik and Gaborik play like themselves, its not even a debate.
If they both play at their absolute maximum, then it could be a question of getting a top 4 seed. The conference isnt all that strong outside of a few teams.
I agree. Lundqvist almost beat the Caps by himself last post-season with hardly any support in scoring, and in my opinion, they're the best offensive team out there. Just think, with the secondary scoring coming around, we might have a decent run.
Even in that huge rough patch they were in I would've said they make the playoffs. What they do in the playoffs is a different story, and all hope is lost usually when in them.
However, I don't see a team with Lundqvist, AND Gaborik, not making the playoffs. Just doesn't seem possible. Plus, I believe we are a notch ahead of about 5-7 teams in the conference overall (so if push comes to shove, we'd automatically be in the 8-10 spots).
Hank is already playing more then he probably should. The Olympics wont help or worse.
I'm with PLD on this.
NJD are sending Brodeur and parise
PITT is sending Malkin Crosby
PHI is sending Pronger and Richards
BUF is sending Miller
see that pattern here. We aren't the only team sending our best players. this olympic letdown is the biggest bs statement out there. It is basically a level playing field as all teams are sending their best one or two players at least to the Olympics.
this excuse is just a cop out and really holds no ground. Unless people actually believe that only our players will be affected by the Olympics, and that every other player who will play in them will come out feeling fine or even better.
