08:23 AM ET 01.23 | Ryan McDonagh being run hard into the boards from behind on Saturday underscored what might emerge as a need for John Tortorella. The Rangers have depth on defense, including Steve Eminger, sidelined with a separated shoulder, and Jeff Woywitka, who presumably would play [Monday] night if McDonagh can't go against the Jets at the Garden. So the charge for [Glen Sather] is not to find just any defenseman, but one Tortorella will trust for major minutes down the stretch. The Rangers have always liked the Hurricanes' Tim Gleason, but there's a question whether he skates well enough for this coach. Sheldon Souray is an interesting proposition, given his ability to bomb away from the power play point.

I don't think too many people thought they would sustain thru the whole season, but then again I didn't expect Ottawa to be playing this well, either

I think Ottawa might end up being a first round spoiler for someone if they make the playoffs.

WHAT IS THIS BS? THE RANGERS DON'T NEED ANYONE. ALL THE OTHER TEAMS ARE CRAP AND DON'T HAVE A CHANCE AGAINST THE RANGERS. SOURAY IS A JOKE. WHY WOULD WE WANT HIM? YOU PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS.

Just thought I'd get that out of the way before you know who shows up :)

As of right now, I would agree with that.
In the East I see Flyers, Rangers, Bruins and Pens playing for top slots (I'm not sure who will step up in the South-least)

I think they will consider their season a rousing success if they make the playoffs and be just a small speed bump to the next round for the team playing them like who'll they beat The Rags the Flyers the Bruins do they match up good against any of these teams ???

Apparently he couldn't even stop people in the minors (according to the reports)...so why would a team at the top want him.

If he gets detention again today, we might not have to read his garbage until around 4pm.

I'm gonna call his school and see if they will put him on double secret probation. Maybe that will keep him away.

Dallas quietly plunged after that hot start eh? I didn't notice it what with the lack of anybody realizing there's a team there..

Yeah... sinking like a boulder in a bathtub.

No scoring and the defense is very suspect right now. Souray is probably trade bait as is Nystrom.



Dammit...
