The Thrashers are now 0-6 after they were stomped by the Flyers last night. This is either reason to think the Rangers will cruise when they play the Thrashers tomorrow; or they will leave themselves exposed to the inevitable letdown game against an inferior opponent.
Of course, “letdown” implies you’ve been at a fairly high level already, which we know not to be the case with the Rangers.
Meanwhile, you wonder if Bob Hartley will be behind the bench tomorrow, or if the hammer could drop before then. I have no knowledge either way: I’m just being a ruthless rumormongering blogger.
The one piece of good news is Marian Hossa is back from his groin injury, since Hossa is one of the pillars of our fantasy team. And speaking of which, there have already have been accusations of tampering in the league centering around my co-owner Zip. With Zip still fighting a cold, he was accused of lingering too close to key members of the Rangers — who are on rival fantasy teams — in hopes of getting them sick.
This, of course, is completely false. Although now that you mention it, it’s really not a bad idea…
