New York Rangers Tickets for Sale
Basically swapping coaches with the Canucks, the Rangers have received Alain Vigneault as their new head coach, while sending hot head John Tortorella, vowing to change his outspoken ways, to set up camp in Vancouver. Always a great team to watch, the New York Rangers are hoping to equip themselves with a stronger offense this season. If they can pull that off, they will have a considerable chance at being a Cup favorite.
Offense has always proven to be the Rangers' biggest downfall, because no one seems to want to push the plays. This is a team that had a coach that was very defensively oriented and their offense has struggled because of it. Rick Nash brought a much needed push to this offense since his arrival, but there was no way to expect him to do it alone. However, restricted free agent Derek Stepan could help to dominate scoring drives, putting New York in a great offensive position. Also, the additions of Benoit Pouliot and Derrick Brassard should also help with the depth scoring. Overall, the Rangers still seem to be missing that key ingredient offensively.
Committed to defense under Tortorella's reign, Ryan McDonagh and Ryan Callahan have proven they will use themselves as human shields when it comes to stopping the puck. The biggest weapon New York has on defense is what lies in front of the net. Dominating the league while tending the goal, Henrik Lundqvist seems to be the backbone of this side of the game. With an aggressive offense and his ability in the back of the ice, the Rangers have a great chance at post season play.
The biggest change for this team is the coaching staff, and the addition of some much needed offensive players. This will help keep the Rangers playing their game instead of trying to do too much adjusting, making it easier for them to go forward instead of back.
