Tonight Filip Chytil and Lias Andersson make the Rangers look into the future!

A Look Into The Future
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 12:59:11 PM - March 26, 2018

The Rangers made a huge change in just filling holes insted of a total tear down and rebuild at the trade deadline by trading Ryan McDonagh, J.T. Miller, Rick Nash, Michael Grabner, Nick Holden. and even AHLer Ryan Graves who never got  a chance on Broadway. In has come Ryan Spooner, Vlad Namestmikov, Rob O'Gara who have been inserted in the lineup right away  and along with many future pieces like Boston Bruins #1 and #3 pick in 2018 and their #7 pick in 2019 alomg with Ryan Lindgren (who has since singed his ELC with the Rangers and is in Hartford on an ATO and expects to compete for an NHL spot next summer);  Devils 2nd rounder and prospect Igor Rykov; Tampa's #1 in 2018 and #1 in 2019 (that drops to a #2 if Tampa doesn't win the Cup in 2018 or 2019.. LET'S GO TAMPA), along with Brett Howden and Libor HAjek; and Colorado prospect Chris Bigras. Also this past summer, the rebuild became easy to see as the Rangers traded away 1st line center Derek Stepan and goalie Antii Raanta for this past years #7 overall pick that turned out to be Lias Andersson along with dman Anthony DeAngelo who started in Hartford came up and played very offensively until an injury sidelined him.

Rangers 1st round pick last summer Filip Chytil will play his 3rd NHL game tonight between Kevin Hayes and Mats Zuccarello and Lias Andersson will make nhis NHL debut centering Jimmy Vesey and Ryan Spooner. The Mika Zibanejad line with Chris Kreider and Jesper Fast will stay together and Pavel Buchnevich will be on the wing for Vlad Namestnikov and Cody McLeod (wouldn't Kovulchuk look better on that wing than McLeod?). 

The Defense is the part of the Rangers where the total rebuild is evident. Brady Skjei has moved into the top role as Captain McDonagh was moved out at the deadline. Kevin Shattenkirk has been sidelined with an injury that was actually suddered in the preseason so next year will be the 1st year that Rangers fans will see him playing at his full potential. Neal Pionk has been playing amazing since his callup and has a point streak already that rivals the great Brian Leetch (not comparing him to Leetch, just stating a fact on the point streak). John Gilmour has played well and could stay on as a 3rd pairing next season. Anthony DeAngelo played well but would seem to need to have a stay at home type of dman to play with. Big dman Rob O'Gara  has been learning the Rangers way and could be a 7th dman once the Rangers bring up Lindgren or anothe prospect. It would seem that the Rangers have enough pieces to either trade or most likely buyout Marc Staal and Brendan Smith (who broke his hand in a fight with Vinnie Lettieri in a Wolfpack practice.

The biggest surprise has been in goal. Henrik Lundqvist was lights out in the middle of the season but has had a drop off and was injured in a collision. Russian free agent Alexander Georgiev has been a huge addition and has played most of the games Hank has missed and has won or kept the Rangers  in many games they were outplayed. 

Rangers G.M. Jeff Gorton has been quoted by everyone who covers the Rangers in the press as saying to kep an eye on the Rangers this summer. It makes sense that some of the pieces that the Rangers got during the trade deadline wil be flipped for players that the Rangers have had their eye on. Last year the Rangers had scouts following Los Angeles Kings and the Colorado Avalanche and still haven't made a trade of anything of real worth. One thing with G.M. Gorton......he will wait and wait until he feels that it's a good hockey deal and that's why he respected around the NHL. Don't expect any McDonagh for Gomez steals, just look at Rangers holes and watch them get filled with a bright future coming in N.Y.C.
