He might end up being an afterthought here when Gibbons gets back. Who the hell do they sit?

Assuming Maroon goes in for Stafford, Noesen would be the most likely one to come out next. I really hope it isn't Bratt, even in his 10 minutes or whatever tonight he should have had two assists.

He's going to be the odd man out when Gibbons comes back, which I think is a bummer for him - he's gelled with Zajac, is solid defensively, and has chipped in nine goals.

I will say, as a lifetime Rangers fan, itís very disconcerting and annoying to me how likable this current Devils team is. I suppose it helps that thereís only like 2 players left on the team from the last time the Devils and Rangers were competitive with each other.

Still, the possibility of cheering for them in the playoffs is weird

Rangers made a dumb trade for him and he played like poo poo and then pouted that he wasn't used as their top center when they had two guys playing better than him anyways. Then he hosed off and now has a career revival in Minnesota

I mean, it's really just the fact that the new owners and Shero have done everything they could have to make fans forget the old Lou/Brodeur era Devils. Elias retired and the Devils are young and prospect-oriented for the first time in decades. There's nobody on the team who you as a Rangers fan have hated for years anymore, on the ice or in their management.

because i hate myself, i went back in every team's history to find their most recent draftee to score 70 points for them (ie, not after being traded to another team; and not a player acquired via trade/free agency). i wanted to see if anyone could have possibly done worse than the rangers in this category. years are draft years. let's find out!

ATLANTIC:

Montreal Canadiens - Tomas Plekanec (2001)
Ottawa Senators - Erik Karlsson (2008)
Boston Bruins - David Pastrnak (2014)
Toronto Maple Leafs - Nikolai Borschevsky (1992) (Auston Matthews will surely eclipse this very soon, and Marner and Nylander very well may also)
Tampa Bay Lightning - Nikita Kucherov (2011)
Florida Panthers - have never had a draftee score 70 points for them since their first year in 1993, but Trochek, Barkov, and Huberdeau all have a good shot this year.
Detroit Red Wings - Henrik Zetterberg (1999)
Buffalo Sabres - Thomas Vanek (2003)

METROPOLITAN:

Washington Capitals - Evgeny Kuznetsov (2010)
Pittsburgh Penguins - Sidney Crosby (2005)
Columbus Blue Jackets - Ryan Johansen (2010)
New York Rangers - Tony Amonte (1988)
New York Islanders - John Tavares (2009) (Mat Barzal is only 4 points away from eclipsing this)
Philadelphia Flyers - Claude Giroux (2006)
Carolina Hurricanes - Eric Staal (2003)
New Jersey Devils - Zach Parise (2003)

CENTRAL:

Nashville Predators - never happened for them since their formation in 1997
Winnipeg Jets - Mark Scheifele (2011)
Minnesota Wild - Mikko Koivu (2001)
Dallas Stars - Jamie Benn (2007)
St. Louis Blues - Vladimir Tarasenko (2010)
Colorado Avalanche - Matt Duchene (2009) (Nathan MacKinnon is about to eclipse that)
Chicago Blackhawks - Patrick Kane (2007)

PACIFIC:

Vegas Golden Knights - N/A (obviously)
San Jose Sharks - Joe Pavelski (2003)
Anaheim Ducks - Bobby Ryan (2005)
Calgary Flames - Johnny Gaudreau (2011)
Los Angeles Kings - Anze Kopitar (2005)
Edmonton Oilers - Connor McDavid (2015)
Vancouver Canucks - Ryan Kesler (2003)
Arizona Coyotes - Shane Doan (1995)

well there you have it. no one sucks at drafting and retaining elite talent quite like the new york rangers! what's cool is that while a bunch of the other teams on here that haven't done this in a significant amount of time have players currently that should have a good chance very soon (larkin on detroit, keller on arizona, some others mentioned above), the next player who seems like standing any type of chance for the rangers (filip chytil) is completely up in the air and at least a few years from there even if it does happen!

nashville, by the way, is a weird outlier in all of this. i could see arvidsson or fiala getting there for them but their entire franchise history has produced very few 70 point players by any means of acquisition and yet they've often been good and never quite terrible

i sure loving hope so. doing this got me very angry about all the times i finally thought the rangers had drafted a real actual star player and got burned. honestly, if we were to finally for once in my lifetime draft, develop, and keep a player who is a legitimate star (lundqvist notwithstanding because goalies are different) i might even be able to stomach yet another decade of not winning a cup. i still have hope for buchnevich and i really would love chytil to pan out that way but i think going through these stats has given me ptsd and now i don't want to think about hockey again until the draft, where i will surely find yet another guy to pin my hopes on that will probably end up amounting to a 20 goal 40 point guy at best (or have his heart explode in a foreign country)

Bergeron has a fractured foot and will be reevaluated in two weeks. Worried what this could mean for Boston's playoff hopes. Detroit and Florida are a mere 20 points behind them for third in the Atlantic.

Well I kind of noticed how they started the season with him on IR for their first 7-8 games and then within a few weeks of him being back and warming up some they started to turn it completely around and then he'd been red hot since like December. I would expect them to drop out of the race for 1st and 2nd in the Atlantic now and possibly open up the 3rd seed even.
