Yikes Rangers fans may be a bit over confident for a team that hasnt done anything in the playoffs in a long time.

No, the Rangers have not played well in the post season, as of late. But, we are a different team. Since we are talking about the past....the last time Rangers had 50+ wins in a season was 1994. Just sayin' :)

2 games? hahaha. ive been to 24 home games, you scrub. the rangers have a base of young talent..sound familiar? difference? your built for pussy puck. remember we clinched the number 1 seed acouple days ago? how important was last night? zero. meaningless. FYI, torts doesnt give a fuck about the presidents. this is classic, btw, coming from a pen's fan. number one bandwagon team in the usa. sorry ive stuck with my shitty ass rangers my whole life. if i had a part in the team and how they've faired in the playoffs the last decade, id try harderz :lorraine

Wings choked that away. Sadly the game against the Hawks deterimnes a lot. Wings could still be 6th. Not like it matters since I think they are done in round 1.

And our talk of the Devils yesterday if it's them at the panthers they will kill them for sure.

good to see reads cut the throats of the sabers last night. the phantoms play here where i live. he was crazy during his 5 games with us last year, scored like 9 goals in his first 5 professional games. knew that was the last we'd see of him after that.

He's probably been the biggest surprise for the Flyers this season. It happens a lot where college players light the lamp in the AHL, but often times don't find the net in the NHL.

Read's speed (say that five times fast) is incredible and allows him to get chances like he did last night.

As always the "best ever" conversation is an extremely difficult, almost fruitless conversation to have, although it is fun to debate. The reason why is the different eras in which they played. Gordie Howe would not be as productive in today's NHL as he was in his era, nor would Gretzky (although I'm the first to admit they'd be pretty amazing because of the passion they brought to the game and their natural skillsets, i.e. Gretzky's uncanny vision).

To me, it comes down to two things when deciding best ever:
1) How would their game translate to other hockey eras. Would they still be effective?
2) What have they done for the game, aside from statistical production?

The Rocket, IMO, was the first real flashy superstar of the NHL. He took the game to a whole new level with his style of play and even the grit with which he played. He was an all-around hockey player if there ever was one. Gordie Howe really pioneered the power forward role. Gretzky completely turned the game upside down... defensive and goaltending styles adapted essentially because of what he brought. Hockey's major expansion into the US, particularly out west, can be directly traced to his move to LA. Lemieux built on that and was such a dynamic, unimaginable force because of his combination of size and speed.

To me, though, it comes down to Bobby Orr. Completely changed the way the game was played by showing that defensemen could participate in the offense. Other teams had to adapt to try and stop him, which has evolved into the team defensive schemes you see today. The idea of a skating defensemen who not only came within the blue line but participated offensively was almost unheard of before then. Not only that, but he was a dandy player in his own end as well.

Also, I'm convinced Bobby Orr would still be pretty effective in today's NHL. Players are bigger and faster, thus making Orr more containable, but I think his natural skills would still make him a force even today.

Just my unsolicited, Friday morning two cents :)

im actually going to push as rinaldo for the biggest surprise. he's a goon, but has actually contributed offensively. last year against albany, first period, he got 3 5 for fighting's game misconduct and a 3 game suspension. looked like adam sandler on skates. but he lost some weight, and showed he actually wanted to better his talent..or lack of.
