This Rangers team is unlike past years teams. The Rangers have one overpriced salary still remaining on the club in Chris Druy. Other high priced Players although worth the Value belong to Lundqvist & Gaborik. The Rest of the team is mostly draft picks. The Rangers draft picks and farm hands like Callahan, Dubinsky, Animsinov, Staal, Del Zotto, Girardi, Sauer and Stepan have bought into Torts never panic system and have really developed into good NHL players. They have shown the abilities to come back and win games vs some of the elite clubs of the NHL. Proof is the Last 2 losses the penguins have had on home ice were vs the Rangers and both times the Rangers came back to win. They currently have the most SH & 3rd period goals in the NHL and are tied for second most wins with 20 which 18 of were in regualation or overtime. As long as they still get very good coaching and stick to this youth plan IMO the Rangers will surprise some people. :bt

I'll say this: the Rangers are DEAD-ON for the proper number of wins according to Pythagorean Win Percentage:

Wins: 20
Win%: .588


Pythagorean Crap:

GF: 104, GA: 87
Pythagorean Win%: .588
Expected wins, based on GF and GA: 20

Mathematically, the Rangers aren't over-achieving or living large on good luck. The real deal so far.
