NY Rangers reboot 2019-20

Rangers are signing college free agents to amateur tryout contracts, we may see K'Andre Miller agree to an entry level contract.

We are already the youngest team in the league.  With all the additions, the ones already in the system promising to make that even more true next year, how much room do we have for yet more pick ups from, the college ranks?

In one sense I would be looking to go the other way a bit and add a seasoned veteran or two.

If they do add a vet it's probably going to be someone they sign off a tryout in camp. They are probably going to get younger. They have the cap and impeding the youth to worry about, but perhaps they can pull off a trade with Edmonton for Ryan Nugent Hopkins and Jesse Puljujärvi in the off season.

Anyway they signed a promising young center: https://elitesportsny.com/2020/03/09/new-york-rangers-news-team-signs-udfa-patrick-khodorenko/

 

Any thought on the free agent market with an emphasis on good to very good face off skills?

Rangers nearing agreement with first-round pick K’Andre Miller

March 10, 2020 | 11:33am | Updated

The effort to bring K’Andre Miller into the Rangers organization is “pretty far down the road,” an individual with knowledge of discussions between general manager Jeff Gorton and the Wisconsin sophomore defenseman’s camp told The Post.

“The ball is rolling for K’Andre to be a Ranger,” the person said.

More specifically, the ball is rolling for Miller, the 22nd-overall selection in the 2018 entry draft, to become a member of the AHL Wolf Pack either on a PTO with the first year of the 20-year-old’s entry level contract set for next season or on Year 1 of his ELC.

Miller, a 6-4, 205-pound lefty, recorded 18 points (7-11) in 36 games this season for the Badgers, whose crushingly disappointing 14-20-2 season ended with their first-round ouster from the Big Ten tournament by Ohio State on Wednesday night.

He would join the core of young defense prospects in Hartford that includes Libor Hajek and Yegor Rykov. The Wolf Pack are in a playoff position with 15 games remaining.

I am guessing D'Angelo does walk given this pipeline of talent.  Don't see how we pay him what he will be wanting and still create room for all of these others.  Plus, to be honest his game which was on fire at one point has leveled off recently.

Let's play two more solid periods and just get out of town with the points.

Is a shutout too much to hope for?  PK has gotta come out strong to open up the 3rd

Hoping that his breakout takes the pressure off and he can just skate and not think too much. The kid was set up beautifully on both goals!

 

JT Miller helping out with the OT goal vs. Icelanders to win it. 

I think we need to see some stuff over a number of games before we can call it a a breakout but if it is going to happen it will have to start with the first game (fingers crossed)

Really tough playing the western conference #5 and  #2 on the road in successive nights.  Is it too much to hope for maximum points now that we have the first one tucked away?

I doubt we see Hank the rest of the way unless we are out of it and they want to give him an honorary start.

 

Let's go boys!

NBA suspending the current season.  NHL currently discussing their options.

We may be watching one of the last of the games this year.

This was such a fun story. One I didn't want to end when it did.

Brooklyn, Boozer, JustEnd, Anthony, Los and anyone else I have overlooked.  It was a pleasure riding along with all of you.

Don't screw it up NHL.  You have a chance to be the only game in town for a country and a world that is crying out for top flight live sports.

Me too, I think this is a good format. I like the re-seeding better. That's how it should be, even though that makes it tougher.

I hope they let Kappo play and it sounds like Lias Anderson may have a shot to make the roster.

Brendan Lemieux will be suspended to start the play-in round.

I am a little nervous about our 4-0 season record against Carolina because they are a good team.

I like Andersson and I think his "chippy" skill set is better suited to playoff hockey but he also has some bridges to repair.  I am not sure he will have the coaches trust to control himself on the bigger stage.

He's probably a long shot, but I like that he may have a chance. Carolina plays us good, it's our goalies that have been the difference.

Shesty every night unless we go down 2-0

Even in a regular year the beginning of the Stanley cup playoffs is the very best time of year.  It is possible to watch three different games every night and tape some others if you want to do that.  Early middle and late games every night for 2-3 weeks and the added bonus of the Rangers in the mix at the beginning.

Please sir may I have another?
