The loss in Montreal is indicative of this season. Montreal races out to a 2-0 lead, striking early and often on Lundqvist. The Knicks eventually tie the score 4-4 but LOSE in final period because they were too exhausted trying to dig themselves out of a hole.

Hmm...for the first time in a very long time, the Rangers are looking like the Knicks. :cry:

So used to the Knicks being the disappointing team that you had a bit of a a freudian slip there

It would be nice to get a little winning streak going here. It would be nice to have both Garden teams be good.

The Rangers basically pulled their soul from their body to win that game. The Knicks pounced and at one point were up, 4-2 before the Rangers stormed back in the 3rd period. Not good.

Rangers played well against Tampa Bay, one of the better teams in the NHL. Big goal by Miller in OT. Team might be turning the corner.

I hope so. I just see the Rangers kind of like Star Trek films. Every other film/year is good. This is the down year.

Rangers took out the Columbus Bluejackets in a 5-3 come from behind win! Back to .500!!!!!!!!

Seriously, seems like every game the offense has to dig themselves out of an 0-2 deficit.

Powerplay came up big. Bluejackets took terrible penalties in the offensive zone. I'm sure they heard expletive ridden speech from Torts after this game.

The NY Rangers defeated the Boston Bruins, first game that they didn’t have to come from behind to win.

The Rangers are 1 game above .500. Much of their success belongs to emergence of 21 year old forward from the KHL Buchnevich who is finally getting quality minutes from AV.

With Rangers drafting two 18-19 year old Swedish players to make the offense faster paced, I like the Russian-Norwegian mix in the near future up front.

The Rangers have a goaltender prospect who is allegedly better than Hank...

Rangers defeated Cam Talbot and the Edmonton Oilers. Once again, the Rangers had to come from behind...Former KHL player Buchnevitch has been rollin' 7 goals in the last 8 games. Nash delivered 2 goals today. Grabby with an empty netter.

Rangers are proof that you don't jump off a bridge with veteran teams in hockey, nice to see them start to turn it around. You just had to be worried that Hank was going to start showing some effects from father time like Brodeur, but he's managed to turn it around.

Other guys are starting to score and the Rangers are starting to look like the team we thought their were going to be this year. Shattenkirk and Skeji are looking good together, Pavel really coming on and it looks like the fire AV talks have died down.

Rangers still have plenty of warts, but Gorton has proven to me he will strike a deal when the time is right.

Yeah. I wouldn't go that far...the Rangers weaknesses' are all there. It's just the team is playing a little better. Still, I wouldn't count on the Pens, Blue Jackets and Capitals stuck in neutral.

I expect the Rangers to make the playoffs but not to make much noise until they get younger, draft or sign a legit first line center.

Is there a forward Rangers would be willing to trade to Anaheim? We`re kind of injured :lol:

Nash for Rakell, no take backs.

In all seriousness I do think we need to capitalize on Nash's expiring contract, I've wanted Landeskog on this team for the longest time and I feel that that's an avenue we should pursue. He addresses so many needs for us.

Well, the Rangers that we know....re-appeared this season. Rangers rushed out to 1-0, then the Black hawks unloaded FOUR goals. Rangers closed the game and cut the deficit to one goal (3-4). Then Hawks unloaded again. 3-6 Hawks. Constantly digging yourself out of a hole is NEVER a good thing.

Nash can create his own shot...which is why his goal was unassisted. Hardly anyone else can do that, which is why the Rangers need a Center BADLY.

Ducks could actually be very interested in Nash IF you decide to shop him and IF we stop getting injured to get into playoffs. No Rakell though, forget about it :lol:
What are the Rangers needs? Young centers? Don`t look at us, our top 2 centers right now are Derek Grant and Chris Wagner. We could give some D prospects and a draft pick IF you are even interested.
