"Let's remember where most people had the Rangers before the season started. Eighth? Ninth? Tenth? They've had a wonderful, surprising season. The best part of it is that it's the homegrown Rangers players making the difference. Let's not get greedy here. There are going to be nights when they just don't have it; they don't have a bona fide No. 1 center. The offense will be an issue some nights. But these guys are working for coach John Tortorella, and they're fun to watch. Take the good with the bad!"
...i normally don't agree with anything anyone at ESPN says about the Rangers, but LeBrun hits the nail on the head here. This team is overachieving big time this season and Rangers fans should enjoy the success during a bona fide rebuilding process.
Yes - they have been a nice surprise thus far -finding ways to win against tough teams.
I just hope we're not headed for the mid season slump we come to know and dread for the past many years leaving us scratching and clawing for the 8th spot in the playoffs.
@chrisdub Hopefully the return of Cally and God willing Gaborik finding his scoring touch will keep the Rangers from slumping this year.
