As promised, the Real Talk Rangers crew discusses the recent news surrounding Sean Avery‘s book Ice Capades: A Memoir of Fast Living and Tough Hockey. As mentioned in the show below is a video of John Tortorella’s greatest moments.
The New York Rangers roster was released with a pleasant surprise in Filip Chytil making the team along with another surprise in Paul Carey making the roster. How will the roster change over the next few weeks? Largely based on player performance, expect a carousel of players to start the season.
The crew also discusses the improved defense. The Rangers have arguably the best top pair in the league with Ryan McDonagh and Kevin Shattenkirk. The Blueshirts also remain elite with the second defensive pairing of emerging top notch defenseman Brady Skjei and steady crease clearing D-man Brendan Smith. Lastly, the Blueline will struggle with a bottom pairing of Marc Staal and Tony DeAngelo.
In this weeks episode, we unveil a new segment called “Real Talk Awards” where the crew gives out accolades to players based on their weekly performance. In this special edition, the crew gives out some season accolades with some witty puns.
