I've been critical of Spott the GM on here for a while now, but I have to give credit where credit is due.

The Rangers, once everyone is back and healthy, have as good a chance as anyone to come out of the western conference. Thanks to Spott, the moves he made put us in this position. When you consider he made these improvements, without decimating next year's team, he really deserves a pat on the back!!

Next year looks not so bad provided everyone returns from NHL camps:

93-Thomson - 94-Faka - 94-Marcantoni
95-Pederson - 95-Sterk - 95-Bailey
96-Llewellyn - 94-Meighan - 93-Ming
96-Learn - 96-MacInnis - 97-1st rounder

93-Fanelli - 94-McEneny
94-Iafrate - 95-Gilbert
95-Stewart - 96-Import player
97- 2nd rounder

95-Moylan


- I figure we'll start the season with Thomson, Ming, and Fanelli as OA's. It would be a coup if any of the other '93's from this year's roster is returned for an OA season.
- I'm assuming MacInnis reports.
- Spott has already said he"ll address goaltending in the off season. Personally, I'd start with Moylan at #1 and if we need an upgrade, pick up someone after the season starts.
- This is very unlikely, but Jacob Trouba has said he's only going to school for one year. If he signs with the Jets, and if he doesnt make the big team, he could be sent here (he can go to the AHL though so as I said, unlikely)
