This Rangers roster is red hot coming home from a big win in overtime against the Winnipeg Jets. It’s a long 82-game season, but this iteration of the Rangers is starting to restore faith in the organization after a bitter ending to the tenure of Gerard Gallant and the 2022-23 version of this roster. It’s an excellent time to be a Rangers fan, as they lead the Metropolitan Division early in the season.
With the Blueshirts preparing to return home with a 7-2 record on the young season, there is very little to complain about. It’s a day when many young kids worldwide will be looking to go trick-or-treating tonight and gather their collection of chocolate and candy for the next few weeks. So what if we were to take that to the NHL level and apply it specifically to the New York Rangers?
It’s been a good season, but have there been many treats for the Rangers faithful to indulge in while pretending they’re not? If you feel like I just called you out with this, don’t worry; I’m sure you’re not the only one. Getting back to the Rangers, has there been enough enjoyable stuff to call it a trick-or-treating haul? Well, probably, but there are a few things I wanted to focus on.
A lot could be included, how Peter Laviolette has changed the Rangers roster, the success of some of the young players, and so much more. It’s been a fantastic start for the Blueshirts, but with a long time left to go before we see the conclusion of the 2023-24 NHL season, there’s still a long time left. Some of this will not be the case for the entirety of the 2023-24 season, so if you are reading this after the fact, it did apply at the time of writing.
