@thenyrblogneill @Chris M Gotcha, thanks. I'm with betweentheworlds in thinking the Rangers need to be on their game right from the start or else this one is going 6 or 7.

@wherewasi @Chris M Fair point!
Reward for capturing the Presidents Cup trophy....a first round meeting against Neil and the hottest team in the league. Sweet.
@jmax933 They take them in less than 7.

@Say my Name The announcers did seem to get disproportionately excited when the Wings carried play compared to the Rangers, but I just took that as them getting behind the home team...which really doesn't make sense for a national broadcast. I also noticed that the Rangers continue to get odd penalties called against them at terrible times.This has been a problem for quite some time. I'm not a conspiracy theorist in any way shape or form, but a lot of what you said seems very real.
meh...I've already forgotten about Duclair. I'm focused on the players currently on the roster and it's an awesome group of guys. Let's get it!
This Forsberg kid is legit
@Better Call CK Saul is waiting? Who the hell watches live TV....ha.
Great effort so far....one negative, MSL seems to disappear against these bigger west teams.
Ok I'm all caught up. Read every post...every single one of them. The range of emotions is hilarious. Bravo fellas.
Jumping in late. Since the Yotes are taking on half the salary, does that mean the Rangers take only half the cap hit as well? Sorry if that's a dumb Q.
Hayes ok as well

Can't beat a 5 d-man Flyers team
This is where a team like LA turns it on
I'm worried about St Louis in the playoffs. Good sniper but physical teams eat him alive
Hayes and Miller have shown up as well.
When he's bad he's real bad. Responsible for 2 of 3 goals.
Just terribly sloppy hockey. Boyle and McD playing like dog shit. The big guns all quiet. Talbot his customary 3 goals. Gotta get up for the bad teams.
Rangers on the west coast > Sex > Sleep

I had a hard time watching this one. Not because the Rangers were getting their butts kicked, but because the other team had our captain, best 4th liner and 2nd best defensemen playing for them. Tampa added some grit to their skill. They'll be in the conference finals barring a slew of injuries.

Someone educate me here, why is Brassard slated to earn more than Zucc? Does it just go by years in the league or is position factored into the equation?

Marginally better or the same. As Kevin mentioned and others have echoed, Sather was smart not to overpay for some of our FAs or FAs from other teams. That said, marginally better is not going to cut it if we have cup aspirations. There's still 4 or 5 teams in the West that are better and probably 2-3 teams in the east that are equal or better. Miller, Lindberg and some of the other kids will play a roll, but they're not going to put us past teams like LA, CHI or BOS. Time to get creative or we won't be able to match last year's success.

@Say my Name I agree and deals for vets have to be for at least two years or else the player will not be nearly as invested in the club. Now he's part of the org and not just a one year rental.

@johnnyb3910 I'll admit to being thrown off at first glance.

@johnnyb3910 The Isles actually have the most cap flexibility, but I doubt they'll spend all their available space. The Flyers have proven to be the most creative and aggressive team in terms of trades.
@johnnyb3910 @Chris M @MikeBlue Exactly, that's why I used the word "creative." A combination of young players, trades, etc. to fit everyone in and improve. LA on the other hand has 21 spots filled and still $2.8M to work with. They're set up for sustained success.
@MikeBlue We officially have $23.3M to spend and 12 roster spots to fill ($1.94M per spot). Definitely have to get creative, especially if we want one of those spots to be taken by a $5M per guy.
I expect a ton of turnover on the rangers roster for three reasons: 1) they went to the finals, so players got tons of exposure and will be coveted by other teams, 2) we have a bunch of rosters spots to fill and only so many dollars to fill them, and 3) we have some young guys ready to step in and play.
Great season on the ice and on the blog. We'll be back strong next year.

@AminoRage He's a girl... :-)
CK should have made the same move Brown did on the shortie in game 4.
Is he kidding!!!!
G has nothing left in the tank. Gotta drop him.
Girardi is done.
How the hell is Gabby doing damage down low
I have no nails left. What else should I start biting?
oh my god...
Make the game slow and boring boys. Lull them to sleep.
With they would shut up about Stralman making big bucks.
@Josh-CK Ditto. Amazing playoffs.
Trade Nash for more Boyles and Hags!!!
@DP_Snotty Yes !!!
