Rangers Depend On Comeback Players

from Darren Eliot of Sports Illustrated,
Rangers trio leads trend of comeback players in 2005. One thing that makes Jagr happy in New York is his teammates -- especially Michael Nylander and Martin Straka. Nylander had a nomadic season away from the NHL playing in Finland as well as for two teams in Russia. His return to form after an injury-riddled 2003-04 season has sparked New York's top line. Nylander's puck-possession passing game -- his career assist-to-goal ratio is well over 2:1 -- buys time until Jagr springs free. The pair spent the 2002-03 together in Washington, so the familiarity factor was something the Rangers were counting on.
