In this article, we take a look back at the top four story lines from the 2014-2015 season
With the close of the another New York Rangers season, it’s nice to sit back and reflect on what the team accomplished this season.
At the start of the season, who would have guessed the team would have gotten this far. Well, ok, we all assumed the Rangers would get into the playoffs this year. However, not at the pace and success experienced.
Key losses to the lineup caused questions to surface of how competitive this year’s team would be. Players such as Brian Boyle, Anton Stralman, Benoit Pouliot, and Brad Richards made critics doubts the strength and resolve of the Rangers. Additional losses of role players such as Derek Dorsett and the agitator Daniel Carcillo caused additional questions about the depth of the team.
How do you replace these players that played a pivotal role in the success of last year? How would the team carry on? Will the Rangers recover in time of the playoffs?
