You were a 1 seed and lost in the ECF...so yeah.
No shit, sherlock. I'm talking about the expectations they had going into last season. Their ceiling was about 5th seed/2nd round. They surpassed whatever ''hype'' was put on them last season.
And I'm not mad, like I said it's a team that always fails and chokes so having Nash won't change that.
This Rangers team is a extremely young talented core that got 20 postseason games under their belt this past season. With that experience and adding Nash, I'd say their right on the cusp of being a legitimate Cup contender. Just don't be surprised if they follow the same route that the Blackhawks took a couple of years ago... and that's losing in the conference final and hoisting the Cup the following year.
Good luck to the Devils with the amount of aging players they have.
