On ESNY’s Real Talk Rangers Podcast, Greg Slotnick and Derek Radich bring in NHL.com’s Dave Melroy and discuss many things New York Rangers.

R-E-L-A-X — this is the keyword of the moment right now in Rangerstown. Elite Sports NY’s very own Chris Wengert told us all to relax on Monday morning, the morning after the New York Rangers took out the Detroit Red Wings on national television in Hockeytown. 

But can we really “relax?”

While Henrik Lundqvist finally slayed that dragon known as “The Joe,” this team remains one of the more inconsistent hockey clubs in the land. The offense is back to its humming ways with Mika Zibanejad, Rick Nash and Pavel Buchnevich back in tow, but the defense — aside from the last two games — still showcases its weaknesses.

What are the more pertinent issues in Blueshirts territory right now as well as the idea of what fans could expect moving forward?

Greg Slotnick and Derek Radich of ESNY’s Real Talk Rangers Podcast have those questions answered and more. This past week they were joined by NHL.com’s Dave Melroy.
