That was a different Ranger team. Racheunek's paired with Thomas Pock, who was signed out of college last week and has now appeared 4 pro games. In fact, the only other d-man on the team who could be considered an established top 6 is Mironov. We're talking about a roster where Jan Hlavac is a 1st liner and Josh Green is a 2nd liner. Chris McAllister is now a forward. This is not a competitive team.
That said, I hoped to see Racheunek's NHL experience stand out among a group that has virtually none and that hasn't been the case. As many have said here though, it's too early to judge, especially under these circumstances.
