Again, who cares about ratings and who cares about a sexy NY vs LA final. I think the key point made above that this series sets us up with two string teams playing EXCELLENT hockey and affords us the best series possible now. Let's face facts, the Rangers end the playoffs at 10-10, they weren't exactly worldbeaters.

I think two teams who forecheck HARD, two teams that are FAST and one young gun netminder vs the legend makes for great storylines. The glamour and gitz of LA vs the tough as nails Tony Soprano Jersey attitude.

Yeah, the Rangers did struggle in the playoffs. I know records go out the window come playoff time, but 10-10 is very average, whereas in the regular season, they had one of the best records in the league.

They barely eked out an 8 seed Ottawa team, then struggled against a 7 seed Washington, and now lost to a 6 seed Jersey team.

I wonder what changes the Rangers make in the offseason? Get rid of Gaborik? Can they make a push for Suter?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Plenty of Rangers fans are calling for Gaborik's head.

Oh shiiiiit.

Possible shoulder injury.

Hmm. That sounds familiar to another high profile Slovak player's situation from a couple years ago. Do they not have shoulder steroids in Slovakia?
