(No.62) Carl Hagelin
(No.20) Chris Kreider
(No.61) Rick Nash
(No.67) Benoit Pouliot
(No.8) Darroll Powe
(No.14) Taylor Pyatt

The Rangers have some capable players at the left wing position. Hagelin can create many scoring chances with his blazing speed. Kreider is a young forward with a nose for the net. Obviously, we have seen what Nash brings to the table. Size, strength, and scoring ability. Three qualities that create a powerhouse forward.

I feel the x-factor at LW will be Kreider. In the few games that he played under former head coach John Tortorella, he showed true potential. But Tortorella never gave him a chance. Under Alain Vigneault, he will be playing in a much more offense-minded system, which will present him with great opportunities.
