The Rangers will embark on a new adventure this season as they welcome Columbus, Carolina and Washington to their division this season, as the NHL decided to do some realignment (all because of that team in Atlanta moving to Winnipeg to become the Jets).

So what will this season bring for the Rangers? Well for one they’ll see Washington a lot more than usual (4 times) during the regular season. And we’ll see the Columbus Rangers a lot more during the regular season as well. The reunion of Artem Anisimov, Brandon Dubinsky, Tim Exiron, and Marian Gaborik should have Garden faithful buzzing. A quick thank you might come from the Garden crowd, but a quick change of heart will happen. They will boo them since they are the opposition.

But, the Rangers will see familiar faces in New Jersey, that other team from New York (who thinks they deserve all the attention — after one good season), as well as Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. The Rangers know how difficult their schedule usually is with those four other teams, but adding three new teams to the mix – should make this season all the more interesting.

This brings me to my question: What team in the new Metropolitan Division should the Rangers worry about the most. Voting starts below, and comment on which player or players from the team you selected you’re most worried about.

Happy voting.
