The New Guys

Gorton was a wizard this summer.

He somehow found a way to improve the Rangers’ roster while also making it younger in the process.

Pavel Buchnevich is a potential star in the making, Jimmy Vesey could revitalize the Rangers’ bottom six, and Mika Zibanejad is on the doorstep of his prime.

People will often bring up the fact that Michael Grabner struggles to finish, but his speed is just what the Broadway Blueshirt’s need.

To add to this equation, the Rangers have a plethora of fourth line depth which is something they haven’t been able to boast since 2014.

Josh Jooris, Nathan Gerbe, Tanner Glass (options people, options), and the aforementioned Grabner will add some much needed grit and energy to the team.
