The New York Rangers are going to look very different next season both upfront and on the blueline. As you all know, the rebuild is starting soon and many big names will be moved out within the next few months. We’ve written about it quite a bit on the site but today we’re going to look at the ideal Rangers lineup for next season. Now full disclosure: this lineup isn’t based on any rumors or inside info that I have. It’s simply ideas that I have that I think would set the Rangers up best for future success.
Moments ago, the Rangers announced that they have sent forward Vinni Lettieri down to Hartford. In addition, Marc Staal is practicing with the team, while Kevin Hayes and Alexandar Georgiev are not.

We’ve all heard the rumors of selling everything that isn’t nailed down (aka everyone but Hank) for this upcoming rebuild. We know that Nash, Grabner and possibly Holden have drawn eyes because they’re on expiring contracts and they can add a boost (I don’t know why teams want Holden but I’ll be happy to get anything for him at this point) to a contending team.

Saying goodbye is never easy. It doesn’t matter who it is. A friend, a family member, someone with whom you have had an intense connection with… it’s never easy and it never gets easier. As Rangers fans and sports fans there come times in our lives when players leave our team via free agency, players retire or players are traded. Very soon a lot of our favorite faces may not be here anymore. But above all, there’s something that needs to be said to all of these guys: Thank you. Read more
