A few people are mentioning Enstroms name... however I believe that he has recommitted himself from the Olympics earlier this season. He said he will want to rest for the NHL season rather than play for the country in that two week span.
Does this at all open up for room on the roster for Anton Stralman. As a Ranger fan I have watched him regularly over the last two seasons and I believe he has a good shot.
Granted, he is a bottom 4 defender and this year he isnt exactly as big of a name but he is more consistent. I like the fact that hes a physical defender especially 1 on 1 and hes capable of moving the puck well.
I have not seen any worries on here but I have seen plenty in the Rangers community on Lundqvist current state of play.
I believe Hank has been pretty dam good for the Rangers with all things considered. With that I mean that the team has honestly taken a huge step back in their progress. Yes they have a coach whose more offensive minded however there is no excuse for the lack of defense being played in the Rangers organization on a common night. There leaving him out to drive.
This is the NHL. When you give free back door chances, open shots point blank in front of the net. And dont play aggressive on rebounds. Your going to give up a few bad goals as a goalie.
My point is that Hank is still Hank. The team in front of him is too blame for his stats. He is still the leagues best IMO
