Bold Prediction: Rangers Make Playoffs

Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy gives his 20 bold predictions for this season and jinxed the Rangers with #3...

3. The Rangers will make the playoffs this year.

...thanks Greg, because of you we can expect the Rangers to finish behind the Islanders this season. J/J.

...this is actually the first positive prediction I've seen about the Rangers this off-season. And Wyshynski is a Devils fan.

I actually think it was Ryan "the Rangers will never waive Redden" Lambert who wrote that.

Wyshneski makes a bizarrely off point comment in this Puckdaddy post that ESPN hockey routinely picks the Rangers to do well. Funny, b/c it's usually exactly the opposite. Case in pt, firecrotch Burnside over at ESPN predicts a 12th place Rangers finish. see http://espn.go.com/nhl/preview2010/team/_/name/nyr

His thesis is entirely flawed. Don't understand how the hockey media consensus has the Rangers finishing 3-4 spots below last year when they've made moves that certainly bolstered their O, have a more experienced youthful D poised to make strides, and (cross your fingers) a sure-handed backup in Biron. Their logic is nothing short of mind-boggling.

I was compelled to make a biting comment below the article.
