if Brassard somehow picks up where he left off last year this team will be very dangerous.
Yup, if he keeps it up then the Rangers should realistically be able to roll out 3 good scoring lines and a solid 4th line (assuming Stepan signs)
Zucc looked good, Pouliot looked pretty good. Fast and Lindberg looked good together and solid overall. Good puck possession but didn't generate a ton of great chances. I blame Pyatt who really seemed to drag that line down, but maybe I'm just being too critical. He just doesn't seem to keep the play going all that well
I like Dorsett a lot, the Rangers need to find him enough icetime to be effective.
Didn't notice much of Yogan other than his assist but I wasn't looking for him.
McDonagh and Girardi were meh. McIlrath wasn't very good but seemed to be trying to force stuff there, like he was really just trying too hard to impress. Stralman looked good.
Dom Moore also continued to look quite good and I think will be a great addition to the team
Talbot was solid even if he could have had the first goal, it was a good shot. Biron also was good but didnt face as much work
Rangers in general seemed to be more aggressive than they have been under Tortorella. Pressured the puck more offensive and defensively, less standing around. Still rusty and sloppy in a lot of areas but looks like some potential is there
Still think this team is pretty underrated offensively if they get Stepan signed and Richards has a decent year, and the play of Fast and Lindberg makes me feel good about their depth and the future of the team
Those little plays are underrated and its mainly hockey sense and feel for the game that allow for certain players to be in the right area. He did the same stuff at the World Juniors a couple of years ago.
