The Rangers Could Own The City

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Rangers may skate under the radar through most of the calendar, but they have the pedigree that grants them the ability to own this city the way they did when they won it all in 1994 and even when they went to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1979.

The way they have a chance to own this city this spring.

Look, this is not a powerhouse team. This is not a group glittering with stars like the one featuring Mark Messier, Brian Leetch, Mike Richter and Adam Graves that put an end to the 54-year Stanley Cup drought by looking history in the eye until it blinked.

But it is a team that is greater than the sum of its parts operating in a sport that rewards fabric more than any other. There are talents who do get their name above the title on the marquee, specifically Henrik Lundqvist and Marian Gaborik, and that is required of teams that go all the way, but more than the commitment to grind on every shift, to block every shot and to finish and play through every check, there is the commitment to one another.

All In, on the field.

All In, on the ice.

What a stupid article, even for a writer known for writing stupid articles.

The Rags can and will never “own” the city.  Even when they won the Cup in ‘94 they did not “own” the city, they just weren’t wholly ignored like they usually are.

It must be exhausting living in a world where everything is stupid.

Disagree, Brooksie (Torts reference).  Yankees will always be the sports headlines in the Spring.  Even if it’s spring training or exhibition games, no way the Yankees get pre-empted for the Rangers.
