So far this season, the Rangers have played the easiest schedule in the league, according to this: http://www.playoffstatus.com/nhl/easternsosagg.html

Is this going to come back and bite them? What do you guys think?

tough to say. will the sabres and devils be this bad all year? i doubt it. so if u look at the stats that way, we got lucky playing them when they were down and not when they will be a much tougher opponent to play against.

I'm not sure if understand any of that.

When the Rangers played Toronto 3 times they were hot. Im not sure you can formulate the strength of schedule this early on. It comes into play more during the second half.

Everyone has a tough schedule IMO, there are no easy ones.

Regardless, we finished north of .500 without 3 major players, I think it could have been worse if we played a high intensive Atlantic division based schedule.

Isn't that number sort of skewed? I mean the Rangers have played the Devils and Islanders who have bad records. But it's clear that you can always throw out records when the Rangers play those two teams.

Those criticisms are certainly valid. In fact, I agree with them. Just brought up as a talking point.

For example, 14 games left against the Capitals, Flyers, and Penguins. Earlier this month there was a thread on how pivotal a month this would be (and we're only half way through). Times may well get tougher.

Exactly. Toronto was hot. The Isles started good. Both are horrible now. At the end of the year I think we'll see that the Bruins will have one of the easiest overall schedules. Probably the Canucks too as far as the West goes.

Agreed, I think it's too early to determine strength of schedule.

Two seasons ago at this point, I believe we were first in the conference, when in reality we were no more than a borderline playoff team.

We'll have a better gauge of who the contenders and non-playoff teams are around February before the trade deadline.

Things like this mean absolutely nothing. I wouldn't worry about it at all.
