Atlanta is Burning

No one can really say how successful the Rangers will be from their off-season signings or lack thereof, but they did accomplish one thing.

By sweeping and essentially butchering the once exciting Atlanta Thrashers, the Rangers seemed to have left their mark on the second coming of an Atlanta hockey team by inadvertently spiraling them with an additional 6 game losing streak to begin the season 0-6 and unfortunately for their coach, having him fired after the inauspicious April 2007 finish and October 2007 start.

I take no satisfaction from this, but it’s ironic that the Rangers who have started off this season offensively inept, will now try to repair their season by moving Chris Drury to the third line, that 2 number two centers do not make a first line and third line center, especially with the petulant but at times great Jaromr Jagr.

Well the new new season begins tonight against -- wouldn’t you know it -- the once and mighty Atlanta Thrashers.

Let’s go Rangers!
