NEW YORK -- Surrounded by a pack of reporters from across North America, Mike Keenan stood in front of the New York Rangers' Vancouver hotel yesterday morning and tried to summarize his and the team's outlook heading into Game 7.About 15 feet away, Keenan's attorney, Rob Campbell, quietly tried to douse the brush fire caused by reports that Keenan has agreed to become the Detroit Red Wings' general manager-coach next year.The visual distance between Keenan and his agent was striking, because it mirrored the psychological distance between Keenan and the band of Rangers who are one loss from the most horrendous collapse in the franchise's star-crossed history.

Folks who follow the New York Rangers -- and who can miss them, with their gaudy 38-16-4 record atop the NHL standings? -- might be thinking they are going to run out of legs and energy at playoff time.But no one can be wondering about Mark Messier, Adam Graves or Sergei Zubov.Messier has played better as the season has progressed; Graves, with 40 goals, is 10 from the Rangers' all-time goal scoring record set by Vic Hadfield in 1971-72; and Zubov, a defenseman, is turning out to be the biggest surprise in the league, returning from an early stint in the minors to produce eight goals and 52 assists in 52 games.

RYE, N.Y. -- October has arrived, time for Rangers fans todream about winning the Stanley Cup. Leaves fall, hopes rise. It happens every year.Time passes. A world war, a cold war, a war in the Persian Gulf. Nuclear energy, solar energy, trips to the moon. And still the Rangers haven't won the Cup.It has been 51 years.But the only number on the minds of fans these days is 11, the jersey worn by Mark Messier. He wore that number in Edmonton for 12 seasons and won five Stanley Cups.Now he's wearing it in New York and the Oct. 4 trade that brought Messier to the Rangers for Bernie Nicholls, Louie DeBrusk and Steven Rice has given fans more hope than they've had in years.

NEW YORK -- In his brief but colorful tenure here -- when he's not telephoning Madonna, taping an appearance on David Letterman's television show or making commercials and public appearances -- Mark Messier has left his imprint on the New York Rangers.Recently, against the San Jose Sharks in overtime, he left it on an unsuspecting Brian Mullen.As Rangers defenseman Brian Leetch maneuvered into position for a shot, Mullen turned to stop his charge. Messier anticipated the Shark's move and, with one lowered shoulder and a not insignificant portion of his stick, laid him out on the cold Madison Square Garden ice. An unfettered Leetch shot and scored, and the reborn Rangers had another victory.
