Rangers next to last in man-games lost

A statistic to be very satisfied about over the last couple of seasons. The Rangers aren't getting injured at all in comparison to other teams. Shorter road trips within the division and the conference favouring a better and faster recovery between games? A very competent medical staff? Or just luck? I'd go with a little mix of everything. Knock on wood to keep the infirmary the more empty possible.

We didnt really lose any guys to injuries last year either. And the only big one I remember before that were Avery and Straka one season, and Rucinsky in 05-06

Dubinsky missed a significant amount of time, and Drury and Redden missed some games as well. Avery missed a few games at the start of the season.

I think the sit back and play it safe approach under Renney limited the number of injuries. I'm surprised Tortorella's all out forechecking style hasn't resulted in more injuries.

I do think a really good training and medical staff helps.

Does anyone know if aplayer got injured lets say redden and it ended his career or it put them out for a long time would their salary still count towards the cap?

I agree. I think we have a top notch staff in that department that helps a lot here.

We've been extremely lucky in this department for a number of years now. lets hope it continues.

Somethings up, cause even Gaborik is staying healthy.



It is interesting that the Atlantic teams travel the least within the division. The furthest trip is Pittsburgh.

They don't play a physical, confrontational style.
I think this has a lot to do with it.
The Eastern conference in general is pretty soft too.

That being said you always have to give the medical staff some credit for the team's continuous health.

You don't want to pile up too much luck in this category. The law of averages is a mean son of a *****... especially down the stretch.

If they're placed on IR it doesn't count against the cap...I think..

Most of us would be lying if we said this thought didn't at least cross our minds when we read the thread title.

You don't get the full cap hit back if a player's on LTIR for the whole season.

I think the max you can get back is 50% of their cap hit.

Obviously if a player's too injured to ever play again you'd waive him or something. (or the player would retire due to the injury).

Not quite sure how the money works out if a player has a career ending injury.

I haven't posted anything about this for the last two seasons, but since the jinx bottle is already opened...

It is absolutely freakish how low the amount of man games lost to injury is over this year and last, compared to other teams. Look at last year and it will blow you away.

The bad news is we haven't been able to parlay our good fortune into a rise in the standings...or at least much of a rise. Look at the Devils, losing key players this year left and right, and it doesn't stop them.

Can you imagine if the Rangers had the Devils injury luck this year and vice versa? Scary to even think about.
