Last week, we took a look at some of the core players that the Rangers should be willing to move and why. The article can be found here. This post is a follow-up article that will discuss which of the Rangers’ core members are not expendable.
As we discussed in the last article, The New York Rangers are likely going to shake up the team’s core during this offseason. The current core has experienced plenty of deep playoff runs, but none have ended with the Rangers winning it all.
Additionally, several of the core players have either declined or are edging closer to their eventual decline. The Rangers also happen to be severely lacking talent on their blueline, which has become their Achille’s heel.
These points will likely force the Rangers’ General Manager, Jeff Gorton, to make changes to the team’s current core.
However, there are four core members that the Rangers should not be willing to part ways with. These core members have become an integral part of the Rangers’ success and parting ways with these players would be detrimental to the future of the Rangers.
