Slipping deeper into the Abyss

Last nights PK was atrocious, so many back door conversions on the open side and the our Defense looked clueless. We were outworked. In the last in a series of 1 goal losses, story remains the same. The other team wanted it more than we did. By one more goal.

Read the official recap here.

Here we are again, Rangers fans. Another season in which we could be proving our selves to be perennial frontrunners who blaze through the first half of the season only to gas in the home stretch. While it might be easy to use the injuries as an excuse, They were hardly a factor early in the season. The difference is all the other teams have stepped it up and we have yet to find out if we have another gear.

In that respect, credit should be given .. or at least not as much taken away from Slats and the suits. Mccabe was a fairly modest deal for most concern that freed up some salary at season end and John Mitchell for a 7th round pick probably didnt cost us anything. The only thing worse than chugging along in 2nd gear while everyone is passing us in third would be to add a high octane players like richards that would only add weight and not add enough pick up to qualify us for the post season.

While the possibilities are still there to make to the first round. A quick exit would only hold water with the ticket prices. The fans demand more now that we've seen what this team can do. Its up to them to find another gear and up to us to keep hope alive even if they play better away that they do at home.

Till Next time Ranger Fans,

Any offer of 'tickets at cost' is exactly that -- I have season tickets and will sell them for what I paid --- so no mark-ups.
