I really thought they'd be better, but the 16 games on the road to start the season, and the injuries/COVID have really knocked them back more than I expected. I still expect them to be a tough opponent, and to improve a bit, but they sure dropped off a cliff.

Alternatively, we saw last year, they weren't THAT great in the regular season until about the last month or so, so perhaps this is a team that is better suited for grinding out playoff wins, than it is to play in the regular season. Last year they had enough there to get to the playoffs, but this time round they might just not have enough.

I just watched a video made at the begining of the season, "5 Teams that May Surprise this NHL Season." The Kraken, Canucks, Bruins, Blackhawks, and the Rangers. We are the only team surprising anyone. You could argue the Bruins, but they are no better than last year's Bruins. The Islanders? Lost 9 straight

They are pretty much done. They need a miracle to get into the playoffs.

Their senile, old, incompetent GM of course takes no criticism. He brought in washed up relics in Chara and Parise. He's drafted poorly. He got rid of one of his top 4 defenseman in Leddy because he believed in a dirty, cheap shot scrub in Mayfield. He is relying on his 4th line to be the identity of the team who are now old and overpaid. I will enjoy them sucking all season.

That being said, you better cheer for them to start winning some games. We don't need those assholes with a top 3 pick.

Well after tonight's win against the Oilers, the Rangers are 22 points ahead of the Islanders. Even if the Isles were to win all 6 of their games in hand, the Rangers would STILL be 10 points up.
