So the Rangers choked at the finish line.
Losing in overtime, games when they were ahead with comfortable leads into 3rd.
Congrats to the Kings, they were very, very good.
My previous complaint that the Rangers were lacking a true no 1 stud center were sadly prophetic.
Richards ending the final on 4th line (2nd year in a row) and Nash really being unlucky.
Gabby was a stud and it is just typical that he would come to kill us off.
GM Sather has really no one else to blame but himself.
So I reckon we would have been 1 – 2 weeks away from competing, like the last time Jags almost won the scoring title.
But no – you would be wrong.
We completely retool. Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result is true insanity.
Remember – we dumped Nylander and got Gomez and Drury. Rangers went from contenders to pretenders.
Yeah we also signed Redden (34 years for what 7 meg a year for 5 years)!
You would think we would learn the lesson BUT you would be wrong! Sather couldn’t sign a 24 year Stralman, the young swedish stud D for 5 years for 4.5 with Lidstromian potential… so we spent 4.5 signing dinosaurian Dan Boyle who is 38.
Have we learned nothing????
Taking about Boyle, Brian Boyle also signed with Tampa for 1.5?
You are kidding me.
We couldn’t find 1.5 bucks to sign this guy, a heart and soul gritty player. Really disappointing but it wouldn’t be so disappointing if we pick up some good guys.
Lee Stempniak, Tanner Glass, Matthew Lombardi are here to replace Pouliot, Boyle, Dorsett and Fast/JT Miller to replace Richards.
I am blue!
Look for another 20 year Ranger drought.
Lets’ go Rangers.
