At Puck Daddy, as one of their predictions for 2013 they pick the Rangers to win the Stanley Cup in the lockout shortened season.
They praise the combination of the Rangers scoring, grit, defense and goaltending with Henrik Lundqvist.
They do wonder though if Henrik Lundqvist will be able to handle a deep playoff run as “he’s gotten progressively more porous as the playoffs advance.”
Wyshynski also likes idea of the Rangers winning the Stanley Cup in a lockout season and attaching an asterisk next to it like many Ranger fans do with the Devils Stanley Cup of 1995.
Back in October, Elliotte Friedman picked the Rangers to win the Stanley Cup.
