New York Rangers: Five Reasons You Should Feel Optimistic

The Rangers Are Healthy This Year

Don’t get me wrong, I’m obviously not in the locker room and I’m sure there are players who are banged up, but the Rangers are very lucky to have only one player currently sitting out with an injury (Dylan McIlrath).

Last season we all witnessed what can happen to a team that is littered with injuries. In fact, it was a miracle the Rangers made it as far as they did last year with all of the injuries they suffered.

Keith Yandle, Ryan McDonagh, and Dan Girardi all sustained injuries throughout the playoffs, not to mention that awful Mats Zuccarello head injury.

Kevin Klein was also coming off of a broken arm while Martin St. Louis was never the same after suffering a sprained knee.

The playoffs are not here just yet, but the fact that the Rangers have stayed relatively healthy the past month is yet another reason to be optimistic.

Fingers crossed.

I've been a die hard Rangers and Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I enjoy sharing opinions, and hearing from fans that love their teams just as much as I do. Henrik Lundqvist makes all of us look like mere mortals. E-mail me at: [email protected]
