Yes, I lived through the ’94 Cup run (albeit young), so I may be slightly slanted…but only slightly.

Starting Lineup

G – Mike Richter – Richter gets the nod over Hank simply becuase of The Cup. Best known for his penalty shot save on Bure in Game 4.

Bench – In no particular order

Goaltender is the strongest Rangers position in history, and their bench has an over-abundance of them.

RW – Bryan Hextall – Won The Cup with the Rangers in 1940, and won the scoring title in 1942.
