Unlike the typical Hempstead fan we do not have blinders on as far as our own team goes and actually pay attention to what other NHL teams are doing besides the Rangers.
Writing away from the Rangers at this time also helps to relieve the agony of watching our Blueshirts almost get shutout by a household name such as Mike Smith of the Lightning.
The first article I wrote for Hockey Barn during this recent Ranger slump concerns another player named Smith. Hockeybarn asked me to write about an epic blunder in Hockey.
Rather than write an article that was all about The Rangers choosing Hugh Jessiman 12th overall in the 2003 draft, I chose to write about Edmonton Oiler Steve Smith scoring on his own goal during Games Seven of the 1986 Smythe Division Finals.

I also wrote another article for Hockeybarn concerning the NHL's best player bargains and believe it or not a New York Ranger made it !
The article is basically my favorite NHL players that give you the most bang for your buck.
