Rangers and Wild Preview

Rangers:

Fowards- They have the scoring in Nash, Callahan ( he will miss a few games) and Stepan. They need Richards, Miller and others to step up.

Defense- With the likes of Girardi, a returning Marc Staal, they have a good core

Goalie- With Lundquivst there should be no problems

Overall- I feel if they gel well with the new system they could be a legit contender, but thats a big if.

 

Wild:

Forwards- This is Parise’s 2nd season with the Wild, he is the main cog but Heatley, Coyole, Mikka Koivu and Pominville need to be good as well

Defense- Ryan Suter is the leader here

Goalie- Backstrom is the go to guy, but Josh Harding is no slouch as a back up.

Overall- They have talen but are young, if the kids develop give them 1 or 2 years before they are contenders.

 

NHL Thoughts:

1. The west is wide open, with the Ducks, Coyotes, Stars,Predators and Oilers vying for 2 spots

2. Same for the East with the Canes, Islanders, Senators, Canadiens, Leafs and Devils

3. The  Best teams right now are the Kings, Blackhawks, Bruins and maybe Penguins.
