Brian Leetch is hands down the greatest Ranger ever, end of story, cant be debated.

As for other players , some where "superstars" that didnt play there long enough to say they where better then some of there "stars" that where there for a long time. (if that makes sense)

The Hockey News says that these are the top Rangers by position ever.

C. Mark Messier
RW. Bill Cook
LW. Vic Hadfield
D. Brian Leetch
G. Mike Richter

Now add that Rod Gilbert (RW) is there all time point leader. Jean Ratelle (C) is there all time leading scorer at center. Steve Vickers (LW) had more points in less games then Hadfield. And Ed Giacomin had twice as many shut outs then Richter in less then over a 100 games played, take your pick.

Dont forget about:

Henrik Lundqvist
Adam Graves
Ron Greschner
James Patrick

If you had picked any other team this may have been a lot simpler.

Deadly, great list and analysis. This should spark some great debates here(I hope).

Give me Greschner, Park and Leetch on Defense. Graves, Hadfield, Ratelle, Messier, Gilbert and Bathgate up front, with Ron Harris and Nick Fotiu as enforcers, Eddie Giacomin and Dave Kerr in goal. Can we really do this from just the 60's? is what I'm saying Cheers

After watching the great wars between the Rangers and the Bruins in the 70's (I miss that rivalry) Id have to go with:

G- Giacomin
D- Park
D- Rolfe
F- Ratelle
F- Gilbert
F- Hadfield

Sgvette, you might get to see another chapter in this years playoffs. The East looks wide open. The teams at the bottom of the playoff structure have a chance. The Rangers and Sabres look real good recently. Tampa Bay has some real firepower. How about the Penguins play without their two stars? Maybe they get Crosby back, but he won't be nearly as effective when he returns. Montreal, Washington and Philly are stellar. This is going to be great. I think we'll see some of those 70's classic series. The West should be good too, but the teams at the top look like the cream of the crop with Detroit and Vancouver. Could be the Cannucks year.

I totally agree. The East - any team could win or lose. The Bruins some nights (like tonights 7-0 destruction of Montreal) look absolutely unbeatable, and other nights completely sleepwalk. I know other teams do that, but the B's inconsistency is maddening.
The lower seed teams like Buff & NYR have been hot, Montreal is up and down, I will never understand how Pitt succeeds with all the injuries. Wash looks like they have figured it out. TB is headed the wrong way, as is Philly.

Until Vancouver proves they can play at playoff time, Im still picking Detroit. Same with San Jose and the Disappearing Joe Machine.

Still love to see an Original 6 Final. Boston/Detroit???

OK, I'll admit I'm not a New York Ranger fan but I do admire this team. My favorites would be:
Defense: Leetch, Howell (Norris), Park,Greshner
Forwards: Rateille, Gilbert, Messier, Gretzky Cook, Bathgate
Goalie: Eddie Giacomon - loved that poke check!
