So AJ is a guy I’ve followed for the last couple years and by follow I mean when the season is about to start I search his name over and over again looking for a new pump up video. This guy outdoes himself every single time and I’d like to say thank you.
Boy oh boy were we blessed. Yeah, we didn’t get a cup which makes my stomach turn but look how many fucking unreal moments we got to experience. Richards scoring to tie it up, St. Louis going SHELF in OT and also scoring for his mom, McDonagh winning in OT and my personal favorite, when Stepan scored against the Caps to take the series- I still get chills to this day. The Rangers won the presidents trophy, THE PRESIDENTS TROPHY. Yeah, I know it doesn’t mean shit but still pretty cool knowing at one point we were the best team in the national hockey league throughout the entire regular season.
Fast forward to today and times have changed. We’ve lost a TON of those core guys. Hank is older, Zucc is older, Staal still sucks and is still somehow on this team. It’s a new time for the boys in blue and it is sad. I’m going to miss the days of jumping up and down after winning a game in OT or screaming ‘Henrik’ out loud in my living room from upstate NY but you know what? We have a new coach. We have these things called ‘prospects’, something we haven’t seen in years. We have a seemingly competent GM and we have hope. I know one day the Rangers will win a cup and I can’t fucking wait. Until then, I’ll be rewatching this video a million times with a box of tissues, some hope in my heart and some bad ass fucking memories.
