Write your own Rangers "Preview Article"

After reading the....mediocre writeups we saw in this thread

I was a little bummed, but Lundqvist=Vezina gave me an idea. He said...

I bet people on this site can write much better previews than that Florida one.
Honestly, I think he is dead right. So if you feel up to it, why don't you give us your in depth "preview" of this upcoming season. You can do only the Rangers if you like, or the whole division, or the entire NHL. Just write it like it was an article.


I actually have already started doing this for my site, but id be eager to hear what you guys have to say as well.

Rangers, New York, dreaming large in 07-08
by ZYanksRule
September 10, 2007

HAMDEN, Conn. -- It is a roster that has the city of New York thinking Stanley Cup.

This year’s iteration of the New York Rangers seemingly has it all. A potent offense, a Vezina candidate goaltender, and a good-enough core of defensemen.

The Rangers are going for broke this year, there’s no doubt about that. This off season saw the Blueshirts sign Chris Drury from Buffalo and Scott Gomez from across the river in New Jersey. Meanwhile, they held onto veteran leader Brendan Shanahan, goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, and punishing winger Sean Avery, all while barely staying under the salary cap.

The offense is looking sharp as the hockey world counts down the remaining weeks until the offseason ends on October 4, but the major concern on this Rangers team is the defense. Last year, the Rangers defense started out slow, but as the year went on, the Rangers got hot, and so did the defense. During the second half of the 2006-07 year, the defense on Broadway was among the tops in the NHL for goals against and shots against.

They will need a similar effort if they want to compete for the top spot in the Eastern Conference this season. They have made no moves to shore up the defense, but one player may make a large difference:

Marc Staal.

He has played only 12 games in the AHL. That won’t stop the Rangers from considering him for a spot on the Rangers core of defensemen during this upcoming season. Staal, highly regarded, could be a serious dark horse in the balance of power in the Atlantic Division.

The other large question mark revolves around the 3rd line center for this team. Matt Cullen, who occupied the position last year with off-and-on success, was dealt back to Carolina for youngsters Joe Barnes and Andrew Hutchinson. The move, made largely for salary cap reasons, leaves a gaping hole at the position for this year. Rookies Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov will compete for the spot during training camp, set to open later this week.

Meanwhile, the area the Rangers have the least amount of concern with is the goaltending situation. Henrik Lundqvist, entering his third year in the NHL, will look to improve on a sophomore campaign that saw him start slow but finish as one of the best goaltenders in the NHL. If he can maintain the pace he was on at the end of the season, the Rangers defense will be made to look a lot better.

Expectations are high for this Rangers team. New York expects this team to be playing deep into May. Anything less will be a disappointment.

Exactly how the Rangers want it in the City that Never Sleeps.

EXPECTED FINISH:
2nd, Eastern Conference

LINE EXPECTATIONS:
Jagr – Gomez - Straka
Shanahan – Drury – Avery
Callahan – Dubinsky – Prucha
Dawes – Betts – Hollweg

Rozsival – Malik
Staal - Tyutin
Girardi – Mara

Lundqvist
Valiquette

SCRATCHES:
Orr – Pock – Hossa

haha, oops, I did forget about Mara... it's tough finding a spot for him, though... obviously he'll be in there for us... I took Pock out, but you could realistically take Girardi or Staal out too...

Thanks ... I'm a journalism major here, I've been writing hockey articles on our hockey team for the last year or so, so I've got some experience in this.

Oops, my bad about Staal.

I changed the line about Henrik... It wasn't clear what I was saying... I meant he's good enough to be considered for a Vezina...

All of this "preview" talk is recklessly setting high expectations, especially this kind of ****.
