Was looking at HOF stuff and its actually sad how few homegrown Rangers are in the HOF from say after 1990.  Of course Messier, Gretzky etc….  But homegrown. Leetch and who else?? Richter?  Too tired to look it up.  

Yeah, other than Leetch and Richter we won the 94 cup with mercenaries. After 94 that became the model and it failed miserably. The Rangers didn’t even begin to concentrate on the draft until a few years after the salary cap was put in place in 2004. But over the last decade they’ve really dedicated resources to scouting and developing and it’s paying off.

Sergei Zubov?  Alexei Kovalev?

Rod Gilbert is one Harry Howell Andy Bathgate Brad Park ( who never should have been traded for Carol Vadnais) Jean Ratelle Henry Lundqvist will be. These are just off the top of my head quite sure there are others 

I said after 1990…….    Love you like a brother but you misread my post!  Go Blue Shirts!!!!!!

Zubov only played 3 years with  NY. and Kovalev not in.   Both terrific players.  

I was referring to "other than Leetch and Richter we won the 94 cup with mercenaries"

Yeah…. That was pretty fukked up. No call for anything physical.  I hope they lock him up.  

Exactly my take.  I can get vocal at games but wtf makes people feel the need to get violent.  Makes me sick to see fans of my team act like a thug

Game 5 “felt” like a Tampa win very early on.  

They have defensively smothered the Rangers’ speed for 7 straight periods.


Game 6… IDK…  I am thinking a momentum shift back the other way.  Rangers win tonight and take it to a game 7 at MSG.

Because it’s hockey…

Zubov was a great player but he only played 3 seasons for the Rangers. While kovalev was immensely talented, he was not great.

My fave on that team was the Esa Tikkanen rocket slap shot…

I don’t know what Chelios is watching.  I thought Tampa had a better period, but that does NOT mean the Rangers didn’t also play well.

Igor is in gymnast mode tonight.  The Rangers have actually been able to carry the blue line tonight and not all dump n’ chase.

I am confident…

Rangers looked like the Rangers I have been watching this season.  Nice to see them play their game.  At the very least, skating the puck into the zone versus the constant dump and chase while getting destroyed on the backcheck from Tampa.
