Anyone, everyone, Sully, Ramsay, I'll even take Dolan. On a more serious note, I would have to say Kreider but with any game and every game, the single player that I want to see shine is Henrik.

Kreider, McDonagh and Staal.

I'm excited to see CK during the regular season. I'm hopeful McDonagh can improve his stellar play from last season and Staal will remind everyone how dominant he can be. Having Staal back to full form will definitely take some pressure off of McD (and hell MDZ too). Really excited for these 3 this year!

Excited to see Kreider play with more direction. Not saying he didn't play well by any means-- in fact, there were 1 or 2 games during the run where I thought he was the best forward on the ice for us-- but if (God and the owners willing) he gets a full Torts training camp and plays "Rangers hockey" from the start, it'll be really fun to watch.

That being said, I don't think it's fair/realistic to expect #20 to be a Hart candidate in his first year. But a former Richard trophy winner now playing with linemates that can help him succeed? Not saying I expect an MVP, but I look forward to sitting back and saying things like "wow" and "that's why we got him" more than a few times this season. Therefore, I'll say 1) Nash; 2) Kreider.

You check out the NHL13 ratings over on their forums? They have Kreider as a 68... and I think Hags is only a 73. Granted, they did lower a bunch of player ratings for NHL13 because they changed the way a player's overall is determined... but still. Kreider as a 68? Give me a break... he better have some serious speed in the game lol that's all I'm saying. I'm pretty sure McD got an 84 though, which is good.

Nash, of course. But I am also looking to see Hagelin take the next step. I think the kid is going to improve this year.

Just really like a lot of things about Hags.

Nash and Kreider.

Nash because I don't think the Rangers have had a player with this kind pf goal scoring talent in recent memory. He's just such a tantalizing package of size, speed and skill, and does bring a physical edge to his game.

Kreider because I think Kreider is probably the fastest skater in the game today and has the potential to be what Nash is today.

I'd like to see if Asham steps up..

If Hags will suffer the dreded second season curse..

If Kreider still delivers after 15 games or so..

If Girardi's insanly love for blocking keeps up..

If Nash is worth the wait..

If The King still get's bumped into without our D stepping up and ruffing people up...Last year it seemed like they helped the opponent of The King and dusted him of without punching him to gain respect..

86 for Mcdonagh



Disappointing and underwhelming ratings overall, as is the case every year.
