The New York Rangers are coming off of a great season. Last year, the Rangers were the first team to hit the 50 win mark. Their blue collar style of play earned them the top seed in the Eastern Conference, and fell one point shy of the President's Trophy. The New Jersey Devils eliminated the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals—only after two grueling rounds of a back-to-back seven-game series.
They may have started this offseason slower than most would have anticipated, but they are littered with talent. Last year the Rangers were plagued by injuries, forcing other players to fill the void. Some answered the call, while others showed they still need to develop. Looking ahead to next season this current Rangers roster has the potential to go the distance.
