Preseason Game 4: Competition breeds improvement

The Rangers were handed their first preseason loss last night in Bridgeport, and now will have a lineup of mostly veterans on the back end in New Jersey tonight. All eyes will be on Marc Staal and Nick Holden, to see if they can keep pace with the kids that may be taking their spots. Boo Nieves and Lias Anderson will also have some pressure on them to keep up with Filip Chytil.

I’m also intrigued by Brandon Halverson, who had a poor season last year. I’m willing to write off last year for basically every prospect, but with so many solid prospects in the pipe, this could be a make or break season for Halverson and his future with the Rangers.

  • I know it’s only 3 pre-season games, but my worries have been relaxed. With the talent I’ve seen so far, I am very positive that we are going to ice a far better team than in the past…and our future is brighter than it has been in quite some time as well. I believe we no longer need to trade for an established center, and our glut on D will be/is being worked out satisfactorily (still need to trade or lose Holden) … or better yet, Stahl (never gonna happen right now) to make room. It’s nice to know that our GM is is managing assets like this and evaluating talent so well too. We’re in good hands.

  • I think it’s time to admit that if we are going to win anything, it will be with mats zuccarello as our captain
