The Rangers DID improve.

I seen lately some people talking about the Rangers, saying they had gotten worse this summer… So I’m thinking, what’s wrong about the Rangers’ moves…To me the Rangers have improved… Sure they lost some of their players, but Lundqvist was great and he matured. Cullen is a very valuable player who can impact a team. Some say Shanahan is starting to get too old, well he probably won’t match what he got last year but he’s good for 60-70 points and 30 goals, to me that sure does help. Petr Prucha got 30 goals in 68 games; if he can stay healthy he could get over 40 goals. They kept their best defenseman when they signed Rozsival. They might have Marc Staal coming in. They signed Aaron Ward who had a solid season last year. That sounds like some improvement to me.

The only player whose departure will leave a serious hole is Rucinsky, but remember he only played 52 games and they still made it in 6th place in their conference.

To me the Rangers are one of the best teams and having the Devils fall because of money problems will let the Rangers compete with Philadelphia for the division title. And remember Philadelphia had some speed problems last year…

So tell me if I’m just crazy or if the Rangers did improve…
