Yup, Sabers are being moved to Pittsburgh though.

Also, how are we all going to react with the Panthers win the cup this year in front of 5,000 fans :lol

ESPN's NHL Power Rankings are further proof that they have no clue what they are talking about. Their criticism about the NY Rangers was the team's defense saying they had no good defenseman. They really never heard of Adam Fox I guess? Insanity. The Rangers Defense is one area I think is set long term with the youth on the blue line.

The Hockey Guy on YouTube is really becoming the only source of Hockey Content I can stand anymore lol. Even the Rangers fan sites are awful to read at this point.

I mean they aren't wrong:

Most likely to trade for a defenseman. And no, it's not because Connor McDavid recently carved through the team like a hot knife through butter. At least not entirely. The Rangers have relied on Igor Shesterkin to win too many games, while their defense corps could use a boost in general. They don't have a single blueliner above 50 in Corsi for percentage or in expected goals for percentage, and they've been giving up too many high-danger looks. Shesterkin can only stop the bleeding for so long.
Rangers give up way too many shots. Their shot differential is -86. Third worst in the NHL and Igor is saving their ass. However I think forwards have a large part in shot differential moreso than defensemen.

Lebron James will have a minor stake in the Penguins ownership, too.

Yeah, my main issue was wording it like the Rangers defense is crap. It is actually huge that they are winning games when the D hasn't been great to start. Their D has been solid the last few seasons and has a lot of very good young players coming in. Not to mention Adam Fox is the best D man in the league. It was just weird to highlight it like it is one of the worst defenses in the league that needs help now when they don't and will likely be fine.

I agree the forwards are not doing their job playing 2 way hockey and limiting shots. Watching most games, the Rangers biggest issues is a lack of depth at center and no one that can win a face-off. Fix those problems and the Rangers could be scary good.

Remember, this team is learning a new system under a new coach and have had the start they had. They could be really good once everyone buys in and is playing it well.

Shesty is saving them a lot on many nights, but I remember how bad the Rangers looked in 2014 under AV to start the year and they went to finals as one of the best defensive teams in hockey by the end.

Last point, they also had NY behind a lot of teams they have played better than to start haha. I am not getting hung up on this point though since I do think the Rangers have been lucky to win a few of the games they have.

Their main points are right on though. Rangers have been awful at giving up too many shots since forever. Two of our supposedly best Dmen in Girardi and Staal were absolute disasters in advanced stats.

In the Rangers' defense McDavid only went thru 4 players and the goalie. Most of the team was on the bench.

Yeah, those are pretty bad. I like the idea of just saying “Jersey,” but the look of these is awful.

But it'll make a win even sweeter if we beat the Flyboys without Kuch, Point, and Cernak :lol

You guys realize that jersey is short for new jersey?:lol

Makes you appreciate how tough it is do design a jersey though.
