The unknown of who will where the ‘C’ on their jersey next season for the Blueshirts has left us assuming that either Mats Zuccarello or Chris Kreider will be given the honor.

One thing that hasn’t really come up, mainly since we’re not even in the playoffs yet, is free agency.
In the past few days, the Rangers roster has undergone a turnover that we haven’t seen in years. Nick Holden, Michael Grabner, Rick Nash, JT Miller and Ryan McDonagh are all gone. And that is just in the past week. Read more
Many fans blame the New York Rangers struggles on a lack of talent. When a team has pieces worth selling, it’s hard to say they lack talent. However, they are lacking in a key spot, leadership.
