    Now the get Habs on back end of a back to back.

    If they're in 1st place in Metro at Xmas is it OK to start cheering for them?

    Only if it's to tank for a top 5 pick so they can get first in the Metro some other time.

    No, we need to be more like the Sabres three #8, two #2, and #1 pick the last 6 years and still sucking. (Not to mention 12 and 14 the year before that) Its all about odds bro.

    So cute. So passive. So aggressive.

    They've won three games. Two of which came against teams fifth or farther in their respective divisions (Buffalo, Anaheim). One of which (Anaheim) is/was skating half an AHL roster due to injury.

    Three games won in a row, upping their ROW from two to three... in 14 games played. Look the fuck out, NHL! HERE COME THE BIG BAD RANGERS!

    They're still not a good team, and beating a handful of middle-of-the-road clubs in November isn't going to change that. They are a hard-working team, though, which is great to see given how important establishing that culture is going to be for when they become a good team a year or so from now.

    Well you don't have to be good to make the playoffs, and beating middle-of-the-road clubs is really the only requirement for getting in.

    if it were as easy as tanking to be assured the no 1. i'd be all in, so what we are seeing is o.k. in my eyes. nice to see a team that is working hard with a coach that demands accountability. Kravtsov at 3-8-11 thru 24 obivously tells us he has work to do in regards to one day being an elite sniper. obviously looking at teams like Buf and Edm show the suck for years theory does not always work. At the end of the day I'm o.k. with the current direction of this team. There's a lot to like here for the moment.

    Awesome. I can't wait for them to raise that "Made the Playoffs, 2018-19" banner next October.

    You read me well. That was the first comforting thing I heard after the injury, thanks. Watching the Buff feed sucked for multiple reasons. All they said after commercial is that the kid couldn't get up after trying twice. Didn't want to watch the rest of the game. Guess this kid has become my favorite Ranger after 10 freakin games. He needs just a little luck avoiding injuries so we can watch him reach his potential, which I think is higher than most people realize.

    The two who did the broadcast for Buff were insufferable. Biron was decent though with between period analysis.
