I don't agree with that. The main problem is that they're not finding the back of the net, despite the 30-35 SOG they put up each night. Obviously chemistry is still an issue and the injuries are starting to pile up, but I still feel like this is a good team who will turn it around sooner than later. I'd be more worried if they were giving up a ton of goals, but there's only a handful of teams who have given up less than the Rangers have at this point. There aren't too many goalies who are better than Lundqvist and with an offense that is due to score some goals, they won't be an average team for long.


I agree that they are better then an average team, but they certainly are not the juggernaut that some media and Ranger fans were making them out to be. It looks like the defense is coming through, as I predicted, but the offense just isn't as good as advertised. Nylander has and will continue to be missed while Gomez will continue to be a dissapointment. Drury will have a good year, no where near what he is being paid like, but he is not a huge improvement over Cullen. In the end, the Ranger will be a playoff team, but I just don't see them being any better off then last year.

BTW, Injuries are part of the game and should rarely be used as an excuse.


Oh I'm not using injuries as an excuse, this is hockey and people get hurt all the time. But for a team that needs to work on its chemistry, the need to shuffle in new personnel on a week-to-week basis certainly doesn't help that. It's hard for me to argue with you that they're not the juggernaut they were touted to be in the offseason, especially when this team can't find a way to score more than two goals a game at this point. As long as they make the postseason with some momentum towards the end, that's all I care about.

The Drury signing was good, but Gomez not so much.

You would think that if Sather would have learned anything after the lockout, is that a team is not always best built with a bunch of stars.


Seven years from now I have a feeling that the Gomez signing will be tough to defend.

I don't think you have to wait that long.

I know its very early, but this is beginning to look like the old addage of "you can buy players, but you can not buy chemistry"

Any thoughts Ranger fans?

You think you would have learned from the Holik signing, but not Sather. Give him monopoly money and he will build a fantasy team.

It sounds like Gomez and Naslund are on the outs.

Avery has given Torts his seal of approval. Whatever weight that has, I have no idea.

It could be possible the Rangers go after Little Big Man Martin St. Louis but they need high scorers. Word is Jagr wants to return to the NHL but the Rangers are not on the top of his list.

Reports out there that Markus Naslund is retiring.
