Who Knew? WE Knew

Who knew throwing together stars such as Mark Recchi, Sergei Gonchar, John LeClair, Lemieux, Zigmund Palffy and Jocelyn Thibault would turn into such an unmitigated disaster in Pittsburgh? - Asks Scott Burnside in an article on ESPN.com discussing the 2005/2006 NHL season's high (and low) lights.

Um, how about every Ranger fan in the world Scotty-Boy? It's funny how easily this actually was to predict. You can't teach old dogs looking for that one last payoff new tricks. You just can't. Being a Ranger fan for the last eight or so years has proven that. This was more of a slam dunk to predict than the inevitable downward career spiral of a Baldwin brother not named Alec.

Speaking of which, if the Rangers defeat the Ottowa Senators this evening they will have clinched the division and the number three seed (and home ice) in the first round of the playoffs. Go Rangers.

  • Unfortunately, I have little hope of the Rangers getting past the first round. They certainly won't beat the Devils.

  • Based upon their recent play, you are probably correct. The Rangers have certainly not been playing particularly well of late. Some of that is due to Lundqvist's injury and he is back tonight.
