Gallant was the first and, it looks like, only choice for Chris Drury and the Rangers. He had been rumored for weeks, and it looked like it was his job to lose. As recently as one week ago, it was a matter of when, not if, the Rangers and Gallant came to an agreement. That day looks like it was today.
In the coming weeks, I will look at what Gallant ran in Vegas as a precursor systems post. Bear in mind that those may change once he gets his hands on this roster.
