    All These Ex-Rangers in the Playoffs

    Still kinda hard to swallow.

    All the right moves were made. I for one am happy they took the dying horse out back and did what they had to do rather than trying to ride the broken pony until it was too late to win anything & too late to get assets in trades for worthless players.

    Sucks watching other teams succeed but at the end of the day the right choices were made for once within this organization. We should be happy about that and have faith that they can draft guys like the ones were watching again or better.

    Would’ve been a lot easier to swallow had they won in 14 or 15

    All an afterthought to me at this point. The ones I miss most are guys like Richards and MSL.

    Honestly it doesn’t bother me. I mean we swung for the fences for like 5 straight years. We didn’t win but it was nice being a long term contender. I’m happy we decided to rebuild which is not easy for many fan but it was the right move. The truth is if Macdonagh miller win that means we have another first, if Dallas does well we get another, hopefully the jets get swept lol. I liked all those guys but we did well with those trades and can still benefit if most of them have a good playoff run so I will cheer for them

    The only one that stings for me is Zucc. Def one of my fav Rangers in a long time.
    You know which one also rips me apart? Stralman.
    LGR!

    I think the only reason we didn't win a cup during that era was because we were missing that one gamebreaker type elite player. We've seen some guys that were supporting cast members win a cup and we have a bunch of other good former players on cup contenders now. If we had a Kappo or a Jack Hughes on those teams I think we win a cup. Now, we are going to get that type of talent. It'll take a few years but I am fully confident we can build the same kind of supporting cast around this type of talent agian.

    There are enough ex-Rangers playing in the playoffs now to almost form a team! Ok, not exactly but it feels like that.

    I'm glad for any of these guys to hoist the Cup. They gave us great service and were warriors in our sweater. Go win it boys!

    Yeah im not complaining we came close. My only issue is that we should of started the rebuild a year earlier. For example I would of traded yandle and stepan earlier and gotten more value

    maybe, but it's tough to start that rebuild when you are still a playoff team. 2016 they were coming off of going to game 7 of the ECF. Obvously we got smoked in the first round that year and in 2017 we underachieved in the playoffs which was I think the signal that was needed.

    Looking at every cup winner for the last while, every single winner had some kind of elite talent taken at the top of a draft

    09, 16, 17- Crosby Malkin Fluery
    10, 13, 15 - Kane Toews
    11- Seguin (less important to that team, he was a rookie but still)
    12, 14 - Doughty, Kopitar
    18-Ovi, Backstrom

    While maybe we could've rebuilt earlier, I don't think we end up being bad enough pick that high anyway. Now we got our top pick. This will be an organizationally transforming pick for us

    I’ve always felt that if Zucc was healthy and playing in 2015 playoffs, they’d have gotten past Tampa. And I liked their chances vs Chicago that year.
