    And we still need to beat Long Island and Philly, both away to get to 80 points (or win one and lose the other in OT). Jusy sayin'

    Why?
    Why does this team need to get to 80 points?
    Or do you just want to see them beat the Isles and Flyers?
    Cause I can agree with the sentiment, "fuck both of those teams"

    80 points is just a reference number for incompetence. They don't need 80 or 90, they need triple figures and a prayer. My "lineup" had nothing to do with salary cap or age. It had to do with what GGG ended up with that didn't get 80. Falk, Stepniak, et al will not make it to the Hockey Hall of Fame but just about everyone on my list, especially the two goaltenders, (Talbot and Raanta) brought grit and a lunch pail every night, unlike half of dozen of the guys on the roster we ended up with. And does anyone have a statistic on which team in the league gave up the most goals in the final five minutes of every period? Seems to me that too many guys played "run out the clock" and the Rangers got burned.

    Why even talk about Talbot and Raanta? Both wanted to move so they could play for a #1 spot, they knew that would never happen here as long as Hank is here.

    There's an older generation of fans who just don't understand the game is completely different now from when they started watching.

    Gotta get with the times.

Three of them are playing for Tampa Bay (110 points) and Holden is with Boston (also 110 points). What did he get in return? Nothing for Girardi and "19 year olds" for the rest. The man hasn't got a clue how to build a team but he is very "corporately" correct in the eyes of management. Will he dump Zuck and Krieder in the off season? For more draft picks? I have been a Ranger Fan for more years than he has been alive for more years than he has been alive (saw my first game in 1948) and have seen these moves before by other incompetent GM's along the way. The only time it worked was when we got Messier. GGG (Gorton Gotta' Go).
    The Stanley Cup team he essentially built in Boston says otherwise.

    Thanks for considering 40 young.

    I prefer the terms aware or progressive.

    If you're sitting here clamoring for a "stay at home crease clearing defenseman" then you haven't been paying attention to the league for the last decade.

    40 IS young, my good man!!!

    I'd drag my nuts through 100 yards of broken glass to be 40 again!!!

    ....as a matter of fact I think I have a pair of work boots that are 40!!!! (I know! ...time to get new work boots!!!)....but shit dude, I'm gonna 51 next Saturday and I gotta tell you, I still feel young....and kinda look it...unless I let my beard grow in. But I'm finding out things don't work the same as you get into that Five-Oh range!!!

    It's like if I bought my body at Macy's, I'd bring it back and be happy I saved the receipt!!! LOL

    Enjoy it now my man, I'd kill to go back and do the last 10 all over again!!! =)

    McIlrath would be a top 2 pair guy with a 12 year NHL career rather than a guy trying to stay in the NHL if he was born 15 years earlier.

    The league started phasing these guys out coming out of lockout.

    Lucic went from a game changer to someone who can't skate over the course of one summer.

    The guys who rely on a physical edge for success are always the first to regress.
