With wins over the Anaheim Ducks (3-0), Toronto Maple Leafs (7-2), and the Los Angeles Kings (4-2), the New York Rangers are proving to be a very versatile team early on in this season. The Rangers have been versatile in the sense that the boys in blue have won games while playing the full 60 minutes, won while taking some 2nd periods completely off, won after getting outplayed during the course of a game, etc. To me, these are all good signs. Signs that lead me to believe that something very good is brewing in Ranger Land.
I mean, how bad is it when we as fans start to worry about a period of bad play? Or a game in which the Rangers got outplayed and still end up victorious? Are we getting spoiled? I hope not. Of course we must always remember the “It’s early in the season” line and yadda, yadda, yadda. But you know what? The Rangers are winning and that’s all that matters!
Getting off subject a little bit here, but isn’t it time to get on board with Donald Brashear? Enough is enough! He’s a Ranger now and that is not going to change. Brashear has done his job so far and has done it well. The fans just have to get over the past and embrace “The Donald”. Colton Orr, much beloved by Rangers fans and by myself, is no longer here. It is time to get on board and accept the man who has one of the toughest jobs in all of sport- let alone hockey. That man is Donald Brashear and he is a Ranger! Over and out!
