Not to hijack thge thread, but IMO it's stupid to point to all the games the Rangers "should have" won when there were almost 2 dozen games the Rangers "should have" lost.

The Rangers are a young team who experienced ups and owns. They had injuires, they had underachievers and they had rookies and sophomores. When you consider they are going to win 40-plus games and 90-plus points under the above circumstances, you cant pinpoint one, two or three losses.

At some point we have to just accept the fact that Carolina deserves more credit for playing impeccable hockey for almost two months.

That being said, it would be a crying shame if this team didnt make the playoffs after spending 81 games in a position to do so.

But I'll wait until the Sabres game ends before I really start panicking.

The best thing about this is tomorrow is Marian Gaborik's last game in a Rangers uniform.

I didn't. A long flight down after a big win, there was very little doubt in my mind about this one.

My main hope is that we can win tommorrow, and have 2 teams that could lose to put us in. Have to at least think our odds become 50-50 in that scenario.

Agreed. Carolina and Buffalo will both be playing the second game of a back to back situation tomorrow. Rangers win and they have a decent chance of one of those two teams losing.

Let's face it. This season is over. Rangers are a heartless, gutless team when it comes to these situations. Buffalo and Canes will be in the playoffs. I have given up my season tickets for next year. I can't watch this team anymore. They are a predictable waste of time. How many times do I have to listen to the team apologize for not playing the night before. I just heard the apology for the Islander loss and now I'm hearing the same nonsense for the Atlanta loss. SHAMEFUL. 1 cup in 70 years. Carolina came out like a hungry team full of pride and laid it on Atlanta. Rangers came out against Atlanta like they clinched 4 weeks ago. I stopped using the word WE when referring to the Rangers because I have pride in my job and the work I do and I do not want to be associated with people who do not. They can shove their tickets up their ass. I don't want them to make it. I want my money back for the playoffs. I don't want to be there. They do not deserve to be there. I gave up on this team in December and now realize that I made the right decision. I hope they fall flat on their faces tomorrow.

Yes, but the Rangers have to WIN. This scenario reeks of the first playoff appearance after the lockout when the devils swept the Rangers. Pew!

For Martin Brodeur, tomorrow is GAME 7! We will ice a stinker guaranteed!

BY the way. If Buffalo get's 1 point today we can't catch them. Carolina is not losing to Tampa and we aren't beating the Devils. You know why? GUTLESS.

You couldn't be more right. When have the Rangers every showed up for this situation anyway? It's typical. It reads like a corny novel.

Why the hell would we get rid of our best sniper (yes, after a bad season) when we're trying to land a #1 center in Richards?

1 step forward, 2 steps back? Seriously, get over yourself and realize that we need both pieces. Gabby will rest his body and give us a more consistent season next year.

If not, I'll sign off on getting rid of him, too.

Our problems stem way beyond Gaborik and Richards. It begins with ownership, spreads threw management, reeks in scouting, ties the hands of coaching and development, and smells like **** on a hot summer night on the ice. Richards won't fix this team. This team will NEVER do a thing while Dolan owns it. So, until a sale is made, you CAN only dream.

i really cant wait for it to be announced gaborik needs surgery when the seasons over. the guy is hurt, has to be.

and even if he wasnt his stats last year give him at least another year here. how quickly some people forget that he was probably the mvp of the league through november last year

It's not my opinion. Gaborik is done here. Promise you'll apologize to me when it happens?

It's not his fault. It's Sather's for signing him. We have the knack to skip proven talent for 2nd chancers and injury prone could-have-beens.

pretty much, he scored 42 goals last yr people. I would bet he's hurt and it's affected him big time

lets get Richards and see what he and Gaborik can do together

Hey, Scott Gomez was traded after a subpar second year into his contract. Gaborik is in a similar position, coming off an underwhelming second season as a Ranger. I'm not advocating that he be traded, but it's not such a farfetched notion.
