The Stanley Cup
In their history, the New York Rangers have won the Stanley Cup on 4 occasions. 1928, 1933, 1940, and 1994. The four Stanley Cup wins the Rangers have. For the entire fan base, it would be perfect to add 2022 to that list and be able to say that for the first time since 1982, no team in New York has as many or more Stanley Cup victories as the New York Rangers do.
For the Blueshirts on broadway, there is one thing that they will want and that is the Stanley Cup. Although the famous mug is not awarded or won in December, it can be lost by a poor performance in the month. Thankfully, the Rangers’ arch of redemption has gotten them closer to contention for the most difficult trophy to win in North America. They are a lot closer to recapturing the goblet than they were in November.
Moving forward, the Rangers will be looking to do whatever it takes to grab the organization’s fifth Stanley Cup Championship. New York has the longest gap between cups in NHL history and although that unfortunate record will change when the Toronto Maple Leafs win their next cup (if it ever happens) the Rangers would love to correct the record by winning a fifth with this young group of players.
There will be a long time for this team to contend with the bright future and the strong players this roster has. There will be a long time for the players to chase the cup and a lot of players will win rings with the famous New York team. Winning the cup is one of the few things this Rangers roster undoubtedly has the ability to do. They may not be sure to defend a lead or score a big goal. But there is an undeniable chance they could win the cup.
Hopefully, Banner number 5 is raised this year. Merry Christmas, everyone.
