A number of prospects including Marek Hrivik, Danny Kristo and Connor Allen could crack the Rangers’ opening-night roster.
There’s zero chance that Glen Sather’s bully tactics will accelerate stalled talks with restricted free-agent center Derek Stepan.
Coach DeBoer has already named Brodeur New Jersey’s opening night starter. That doesn’t mean Cory Schneider isn’t capable of stealing away the job in the long run.
Cory Schneider’s competitive start to his Devils career couldn’t have gone more swimmingly.
Dominic Moore recently spoke of the mutual delight shared by himself and Henrik Lundqvist to be back together after their experiences bonding as Rangers rookies back in 2005-06.
After putting his team through the paces, Vigneault spoke of his excitement to be to working with “elite” winger Rick Nash.
Freshly acquired goaltender Cory Schneider has barely gotten a taste of life with the Devils, but he already understands exactly what his new organization is all about.
Derek Stepan does not have a leg to stand on, and let’s be honest, the Rangers have held the power cards throughout the summer.
There isn’t any reason why Rangers GM Glen Sather should play with fire and potentially expose Henrik Lundqvist to free agency in 2014.
Lundqvist would probably trade in all of his endorsement deals, give away closets full of designer suits and hand over the keys to his Maserati in an instant if it meant he could take one sip from Lord Stanley’s Cup.
Talented prospect Danny Kristo will be given every opportunity to the crack the New York Rangers’ opening night roster.
Next time the wheel comes around, Stepan is going to get paid. Big-time. His offensive game will flourish under new head coach Alain Vigneault.
The Devils have given Henrique the keys to their car because they know he won’t crash it. Heck, he won’t even put a dent in the Devils’ red Mercedes, and will take pride in waxing it monthly.
As the shorthanded Yankees chase valiantly after a Wild Card berth, who would you rather have toeing the rubber than “Ol’ Reliable Andy?”
There will be fresh optimism when the Mets take the field on Opening Day in 2014, thanks to the Amazin’s dynamic duo of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler. Citi Field will no longer be the setting of gloomy Septembers and quiet Octobers.
