How the Rangers Can Succeed without Their Heart & Soul Player

From great friend of the blog Stan Fischler:

Getting the pulse of Rangers fans, The Maven discovers that many believe that the Callahan loss is depressing, but not catastrophic.

Hockey photographer David Perlmutter of New Rochelle offers a compelling suggestion to coach Tortorella.

“Torts must have Callahan sitting on the bench from now to the end of the playoffs,” suggests Perlmutter. “Ryan’s presence will pack an emotional punch after every shift.

“The coach should give Brandon Dubinsky the “A” that Cally wore because Dubie is the most logical candidate. If the Rangers play in the postseason the way they did against Boston, the Cup is a reachable goal.”

the Cup is a reachable goal.

I disagree. The Rangers are a good team but I don’t think they have the depth or scoring that it will take to get there.  Lundqvist is a stud but even he hasn’t made it out of the second round.
