I think this is a bottom-5 team easily. Hank can't mask deficiencies as well as he did earlier in his career, and he's lost a step. The defense is patchwork and is easily one of the worst in the league. Up front we have maybe 6 legit forwards and 12 spots. Add to all of this the uncertainty of playing a bunch of kids, under a rookie head coach... and hello, lottery!

I will also say I'm much more excited for this season than I was for last.

It'll be a long season if you expect a bunch of wins. But if a couple kids come in and establish themselves and make legitimate cases for NHL jobs... the future will be bright, especially when you consider Kravtsov/Shestyorkin/Rykov aren't even in the equation at this point. Plus if we finish in the bottom 5 that's a blue chip pick come June, and Hayes might get dealt (possibly Zucc and some others?) so that means more young players/prospects.

Future is bright if you look farther than a season or two.

The mentality is on development... so that's how we have to look at it.

We're starting at the bottom, so there's no sense in getting all bent when mistakes happen.

I'm meassuring this team on character and compete level, while looking forward to seeing guys like Andersson and Chytil evolve as players.

This team can be good if Quinn can maximize their potential.

The line of Kreider Zibanejad Buchnevich was good last year, but there is a possibility that all 3 players have career best seasons this year. I'm really interested in seeing what Chris Kreider will be while being encouraged to be physical. Zibanejad too for that matter....

Quinn said in an interview yesterday that it may take a while for players to learn the new system. To me that means he's making major changes. What we saw from The Rangers last year means nothing.

The point of this year is to establish a new culture. Some will adapt and flourish in the new system, and embody the new culture... some won't... Kevin Hayes and his 1 year show me contract will be the prime example of that. Either he gets extended because he becomes a better player under Quinn... or not....

Let's see, new coach with no NHL experience, a lot of new players, a lot of young players, a new system to learn & play, a starting goalie on the wrong side of 35 with best seasons behind him ... yeah it will be a long season.

It's not in this team's DNA to finish bottom 5. I envision something more like last season. We are in or close to a playoff spot through half of the season, then a couple of injuries to key players and Hank's age catching up with him. 77 points, same as last season.

I think a better time to predict is after they pick their team. They could go in a lot of different directions although I would think they will ice their best lineup possible and be veteran loaded. Any possible chance of competing for a playoff spot will require a fast start, and a battle all season. They will need a total team effort to do it and I dont think it’s impossible for them to make the playoffs. A lot rides on Quinn’s coaching, I like what I’ve read of his philosophy, if it translates to the ice, they will suprise. But if they start dumping a vet or two after camp well then all bets are off.

Analyzing the Rangers’ crucial roster decisions
By Larry Brooks
September 25, 2018 | 12:13am
http://www.outsidethegarden.com/boards/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=3...

"What about Jimmy Vesey, you say? What about Vladislav Namestnikov? That’s what Quinn might be wondering. For while it is always difficult to evaluate veterans in camp because they tend to approach things on their own timetable, but neither Vesey nor Namestnikov have looked anywhere good enough to have cemented a top-nine role. Indeed, if not for their names and résumés, neither has done much at all to earn a roster spot. Both need to pick it up".

interesting indeed !

Lots of variables
New coach is a positive
If Quinn's d system works it takes pressure off Hank/georg - lower goals against. This also assumes Shatty and Smith can play to a reasonable level
The offense is a question - if they cannot score goals it increases pressure on the D/goalie and we get to hold our breathe every night watching them try and hold a 1-0 lead - like some of the Torts years

Any injuries to key guys will sink them
Will Buch, Names, and even Vesey step up and can Zib play a whole season?
They might not be an overly physical team, but they will fight back and no longer take the beating and skate away

Due to the NHL points system - they could be close enough to be in the hunt for the last spot in the playoffs or just below

The defense isn't close to being one of the nhl's worst. You're freakin clueless. Shattenkirk, Staal, Smith, McQuaid, Skjei and Pionk have the ability to easily be in the upper half of defense cores without the retarded system AV was using. Even better if Hajek gets in there for Staal. Skjei and Smith are not going to play like they did last year. Pionk looks like the real deal so far. Shattenkirk is what he is. Average on D, outstanding on the PP. That being said, you still have Andersson, Chytil, Lettieri and Pionk having to learn the ropes at the NHL level. I think they finish around .500 if they are healthy. If Vesey and Buchnevich play well and they get 40 point seasons from Spooner and Namestnikov, they might finish above .500. I also think the PP has a chance to be real solid this year and that will help they win a lot more games. This will not be a team drafting in the top 5. Forget about it.

Hard to say for sure. There's too many question marks.

But there's definitely worse defenses on many other teams around the league.

There is potential to be a playoff team. If they are in the mix, I could see them being aggressive for Panarin at the deadline.

The Rangers' depth at center is now a trading block strength. Andersson is down in Hartford for now, but everyone could prove deserving of the ice time in the NHL.

Everyone meaning
Hayes, Chytil, Howden, and Andersson

One of them could prove valueable, but expendable.

Based on what's been reported I don't see any reason to go after Panarin at the deadline. If there's so much mutual interest then just sign him in July and you don't have to give up anything. Playoffs or not I don't see them giving up assets unless they think they're legitimately among the group of favorites to win. If the Rangers squeak into the playoffs, and they have to give up Howden and first for Panarin to make a run, I don't see them doing it. No way.

I think the Rangers made a mistake. They should have given Zucc the C on opening night. The crowd would have gone nuts. I know he probably gets traded at the deadline this year, but so what. We traded our C at the deadline last year. In fact, our history with captains is not a good one. Zucc has more heart than the rest of the team. He deserves it.

I agree. But if you get the Rangers C you better call your real estate agent.

Let's call it the way it is, the reality of the situation, the way I see it @ least. This team will have to out work other teams to wine games. They just don't have the roster, the talent, the depth right now to beat teams on those terms. The only wins that are coming the Rangers way is hard work & some lucky calls/breaks.

What's his Name: 1 point
Put a fork in Spooner: 1 point
Paul Coffey I mean Shattenkirk: 2 points (can't play D, @ least he is putting up the pts on the other end)
Jenna Haze: 2 points
Buch: 3 points
Vesey: 3 points

Just about every player on the team is a minus player, only 2-3 are 0 or +1 ... those are some sad #s. Some one has to score more consistently.

Any one else getting the feeling that the coach is beginning to develop or define, for lack of a better explanation, his own identity of a team surrounding the young players he sees as the future that will play & take on his system & approach to the game. I think so, I think this is what I am seeing. Thus, I believe or I think by the end of this season the Rangers will be saying good bye to some of the vets whatever it takes.

This team needs to learn how to win, what it takes to win, it will come. A young team this is expected. This year, for me as far as I am concerned, the young players playing & becoming NHL players.

Nice walk down memory lane from Brooksie....how about this one though, a trade that I remember and the fact that I always liked Marcel who in my opinion never got the credit he deserved for being #2 on the all time point scoring list... anyway.. good ol Espo pulled off this trade at the deadline in an attempt to go for it all in his words trading for the great Marcel Dionne from the Kings ...

Ya I got no problem with moving him. Brooks makes a good point they should know who they want to move and get active doing it now. Gortons job in a nutshell is buy low, sell high and he’s got a few assets he can move as his rebuild continues.

I wasn't for moving Hayes after last season. However, he basically hasn't showed up this year. My guess is he isn't meshing with the coach. He probably liked the pussy way AV coached. So, he can go for the right return.

Brooks may be right, but I think return on trades is always bigger closer to the deadline. I'd always be looking to get more in return, even though it may be 'blocking' others from getting playing time. If you really want to see Chytl, Lias and Howden down the middle, then move Hayes to the wing immediately, especially if he doesn't figure in future plans. Harder to do that with Zib, as he is best at faceoffs as well as able to face other team's #1 lines. Also don't think Zib is going anywhere so there's that too.

Steven Fogarty is now leading the Pack with 5g and 5a in 11gp

He may be an option for the 4th line center spot with his style compared to Andersson or Chytil..... he's 25 years old now....

Fogarty plays a style suited to a fourth line role, and should be auditioning to see if he is a piece at that position this season and looking ahead to next year and beyond. Fogarty had his best training camp this fall, and earned a look. If Chytil is stuck at 4C they should be swapped out, and Chytil can go back to learning how to play center in all situations, get force fed responsibility, offensive opportunities along with Andersson in Hartford. Showcase Hayes, Zuccarello and whoever else you want to trade until they are gone, then bring them up to open spots there for the taking.
Although I'm not so sure trading Zuccarello would be the best thing for the Rangers. It would depend on the return. You need some veteran presence and he'd be a good captain going through the retool going on.

Every time I watch him I shake my head. He is what he was in Colorado and St. Louis and the Rangers still signed him and that’s not a very good job of analyzing a players potential contribution.

To be fair, Shattenkirk put up some pretty good numbers in St. Louis. But, St. Louis had a pretty high end offense that scored a lot of goals.

As far as this thread goes, "2018-2019 season prediction" I would think we would all say Better than expected!

The key is to take advantage of the very thing we hate most about Shatty.... his weak ass wrist shot...

He's rarely going to score with it, but if you're there ready for the deflection and/or rebound... you're golden. There's no such thing as a bad SOG. He's been better defensively. If his conidence level raises, the mental errors will happen less often

When a point man gets the puck, weak ass shot or not, smart hard working non chewy coached teams crash the net anyways, so your theory is pretty much nothing new. There is no advantage to his weak ass shot only a disadvantage. His defense sucks, he watches his partner skate further to get to pucks he could get to sooner if he wanted to, because he’s lazy. He’s inconvertible, and it’s a waste of time trying, if there is a way out of his contract the Rangers need to do it. And he can take Smith. I hope Gorton is looking for opportunities to move either and getting back a replacement to fill in til the young guys evolve. Or maybe he’s a bit more patient and will wait til the young guys are ready.

Article in the Post today which outlined a 13 game in 23 day stretch coming up. Which should pretty much tell the hope for a playoff spot tale. The team is at full strength if you consider Shattenkirk a drag on the lineup and not missed, they have it to do. Personally the lineup they throw out every night can compete with most teams if Hank is on. No predictions but this could be the season with the only thing left to determine after a bad run is how many balls in the draft lottery jar.

No predictions but this could be the season with the only thing left to determine after a bad run is how many balls in the draft lottery jar.

Dont be shocked if Henrik plays all 13 of those games

Article in the Post today which outlined a 13 game in 23 day stretch coming up. Which should pretty much tell the hope for a playoff spot tale.

I predict he will play more games than they will get points.

I thought about 80 pts this season, not a bad guess on my part.
