The Rangers don't need to change much. They have a young group on defense that is surprisingly reliable. Without Marc Staal for the whole season, the Rangers have only allowed 2.14 goals per game, which puts them fourth in the league. The team also boasts a top-ten offense with an average of 2.86 goals per game.
Next season, the Rangers have four skaters (Del Zotto, Fedotenko, Prust and Eminger) and one goalie (Biron) they need to re-sign. Del Zotto will become an RFA and should have a larger contract at the beginning of the of the summer. Other than him, all other players can be signed on the cheap.
The Rangers will be looking for additional offense and a veteran defenseman who can boost the team into the verified elite.
