Dion Phanuef is still awful.

The Rags 2 goals...
1st one) Sens are backing out with everyone in their 1-3-1 taking a man - except Phanuef who as the back one is supposed to move to the middle while backing up. For some unknown reason, he backed up straight down the wall with no one uncovered skating anywhere near him. Voila! Everyone is covered coming up ice except the guy in the middle where Phanuef was supposed to go, but didn't. How in the heck was he a top draft pick?
2nd goal) His pairing, but Ceci got caught trying to stay up too long.

Hooray!!! No NY market in the playoffs. Suck it, NBC!!!

Rangers don't bother me. Used to really dislike them but with most of their upper tier management having moved on or fired (although I still don't like Sather) I have no hatred towards them.

I feel kinda bad for Lundqvist. Probably end up being one of the best goalies in the world to never win a cup, along with plenty of other guys on that team.

In all honesty: What do the Rangers even do now? They've stripped the prospects cupboard bare, they've traded first round picks annually (although they have one this year), make dumb trades (*cough* Callahan) and for multiple years now can't get it done.

One more year of a legitimate shot at this thing before they have to blow it up and start over? Two? Three?

The "core" guys (Kreider, McDonaugh, Zucc, Stepan, Staal) are roughly 26-30 years old so they still are in the mix of playing in their primes but really Lundqvist, turning what, 35 next season? Might be almost over.

Lundqvist the king? Ha, more like the court jester. He had as big a role as anyone else on that team in losing the series with his late game meltdowns in 2 and 5.

I am completely over the moon that the Rags are out. In order of events that would make me happiest in the playoffs, first it's the Blues winning the Cup which is obviously not on the table, and #2 is the Rangers not winning the Cup.

You must have been a fairly happy camper over the past 23 years, #1 notwithstanding.
