Finally, a Mailday and Some Cards to Share.
UPDATE: The mailman dropped off a package from Sweden (Henrik, is that you?) today. Even though it wasn't a gift from the King himself, a big thank you! goes out to Frendo for selling me this card at a nice price and delivering it in top condition.
This card has a group of friends to join:
Thanks to HockeyCardMan for trading for the Brad Richards Cup Contenders and Piper1 for trading the Reimer Forever Rivals card.
I still have a faint recollection of Kevin Hatcher being a Ranger in 99-00. It was the era where playing with the Rags was part of the leagues' player-adjustment program for all retiring players.

James Dolan and Glen Sather were like a crazed drug addicts. Their many poisons were a hodgepodge mix of incompatable veteran star players. Messier 2.0, Bure, Lindros, Kovalev 2.0, Holik()...those were bad years. Naslund was in there somewhere before he faded into the background.
Straka at least excelled as a linemate of the ageless Jagr. Shannahan was a good role model. Gomez and Drury never quite clicked and suffered badly timed injuries.
It seems that the Rangers regularly lose their way and their confidence. The loss of grinding role players Dubinsky, Prust, Fedotenko and arguably Avery last season combined with the strike was just begging for a loss of strong team identity.
Lundy, Gabby, Richards and Nash are great players, but a great team needs four lines. That's why Chicago looks so good this year, and is why the Oilers of the 80s were so unbeatable.
Maybe someday Sather and Dolan will put together a team that may not look great on paper but makes hockey-sense. And leave the team together for more than a year to develop?...
Nothing like a critical Ranger fan to put in his 2-cents along with all the other opinionated "experts" out there who follow the Rags, huh?
