Last season, in what seemed to be a very grim looking season, the Rangers are really looking like winners now. after acquiring Corey Perry's rights for very cheap in March, the powerforward came in and helped make things look interesting for the Rangers late in the season. Even though they missed the playoffs, many young guys experienced significant growth, most notably Alex Galchenyuk, who is ready for 2nd line duties in only his second year after being drafted by the Habs.

Various needed signings led to the Rangers needing to let go of Derek Stepan's rights, as they could not sign him. Marian Gaborik was traded straight up for Loui Eriksson in order to bring in a more cap-friendly contract, as things are looking tight on the financial aspect of things.

However, Rangers fans were very excited when the Hawks' first rounder, which the Rangers got for Mats Zuccarello, turned out to be their golden ticket for drafting Seth Jones.

They went completely nuts and danced on the streets when they learned of Chris Kreider's exceptional development after one year with the CT Whale. (70 to 85.) Rangers fans are very excited for the young power forward's first full NHL season, which he will start with Alex Galchenyuk.

Some had to be taken to the hospital after learning the Wade Redden had retired from hockey.
