And to think, it’s still only February 4.
That’s either a good thing given that the Rangers still have ample time to save the season. Or a troublesome thought in that they are only delaying the inevitable, and causing thousands of fans needless suffering in the process.
Either way, my advice is to eat yourself into a nacho-induced haze tonight watching the Super Bowl and try to forget about this maddening team for at least a day.
In the meantime, a quick thought: I’m not about to tell you that Ryan Callahan is the answer to all of the Rangers’ problems. I think we all know the concerns run deeper than that. But this team has still reached a point where there really is no reason for Hartford’s leading scorer to NOT be in New York. Put it another way: it’s certainly not going to hurt.
Naturally, this would mean making a difficult decision on someone in an effort to clear a roster spot. Or maybe given how bleak things look, that sort of decision is not difficult at all.
