    He is retiring a Ranger which sadly means he's probably gonna retire ringless. I doubt he'd wanna go any win anywhere else anyway. And now that he's getting old, why move your family to a new city and everything. He costs a lot of dough so Rangers would have to do him a HUGE ONE and retain on his deal and get bent over in any trade.

    It just isn't really feasible to go anywhere else at this point. When he signed that monster deal, he said he's retiring a Ranger.

    Well maybe Hank will learn something from Ovie this year and turn it up to monster level one of these next few seasons before he retires so he can finally win. Granted he did that in 2014 and they lost, but it was damn close.

    Technically Gretzky. :P

    But I'd rank them as of now: Messier, Leetch, and then Hank.

    Anyone that played more games for another team isn't the greatest Ranger.

    IMHO, of course. I'd put Leetch & Hank above Messier.

    I think what Messier was able to help lead this team to do is something that cannot be understated.

    No one is understating what Mess did for this franchise.

    Who won the Conn Smythe that year, again?

    Hey, I'm not taking anything away from Messier. He's a great Ranger. But, I don't want to forget, either, that he had a great 6 year run here and then came back as a 40 year old. That's not enough for me to be number one overall on the list. There are some that would argue that this team actually underperformed those 6 years given the roster. Not an argument I'd make considering the weight of history that they were fighting against.

    Remember, too, that there were seven years that this franchise failed to see the post season until a certain goaltender came along and this franchise had, arguably, it's best 12 year run as a franchise ever.

    Leetch should've been a career Ranger and I don't care what that stupid trade brought back. On his birthday, no less, iirc.

    To each his own. I get where you're coming from.

    I don't care if Lundqvist plays for only Rangers out of all NHL teams, trade him and get good assets in return and bring in Shestyerkin.

    If you want to talk about who was the best NHL player for their whole career and you exclude the former Oilers, it's Park easily. He's one of the top 50 players of all time, top dozen dmen of all time, better than Leetch and Hank, and if Orr hadn't played, Brad would have won at least 5 of those Orr Norris Trophies.

    2. Shestyorkin is signed until 2019
    3. He probably needs 2-3 years in NA to develop before taking over

    Maybe Henrik can turn it up to monster levels?

    Agree - but another guy that spent more years NOT being a Ranger than being a Ranger. Not > Leetch or Hank to me.

    Right now, I have Richter ahead of Hank. Hank is the better goaltender overall, but Richter has the Cup.

    I loved Brad but Jean Ratelle can challenge him if you are looking at entire NHL careers for former Rangers. Rod Gilbert can't be excluded from the best Rangers only list either.

    What you said is basically a meme at this point.

    Do you have Dan Carcillo ahead of Joe Thornton as well? Because Carcillo has a cup.

    I see him playing for Frolunda again and participating in WC's for Sweden at 40+. Not elsewhere in the NHL though. Returning to one's home club is a big thing in Euro sports.

    Although I agree, I will also throw out the random thought that the Rangers would have been better off had they traded Leetch instead of Zubov.
