Logan Clements- Brendan Smith
The Rangers will need to address their blueline this offseason. They have been extremely weak down the right side in recent years. Brendan Smith has proven that he is able to play solid defense on his off-side. He also managed to have great chemistry with Brady Skjei during the regular season and the playoffs.
Smith is reportedly looking to get four to four and a half million dollars per season for four years. The New York Rangers will be pressed for cap space this offseason. Smith’s potential new contract would be a more affordable option than Kevin Shattenkirk’s would be.
All of these reasons make Brendan Smith a great fit for the Rangers blueline and it’s imperative that they bring him back.
